Effective Treatments for Male & Female Pattern Hair Loss

Tag Archives: hair growth

Man and woman hair loss

Male and female pattern hair loss is a common genetic condition characterized by progressive thinning and follicle miniaturization. In men, it usually presents itself with a recession of the hairline and a well-defined area of baldness. In women, it is usually more diffuse and located centrally on the top of the scalp. Although this condition can have sufferers feeling hopeless, there are some treatments that can help.

  • Minoxidil. An over-the-counter topical treatment that is clinically proven to stimulate follicles and regrow hair. Twice-a-day use yields the best results with progress being seen in 3-6 months.
  • Finasteride (Propecia). FDA-approved for men only, this oral medication prevents testosterone from converting to the hair loss causing hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). In doing this, hair loss is effectively slowed.
  • Hair Transplantation. A procedure where hair follicles are taken from an area that is unaffected by pattern loss and moved to the thin or bald areas. Although the results are permanent, it is important to pair with minoxidil and/or finasteride to maintain any hair that was there prior to the transplant.
  • Viviscal PRO. A 100% drug-free supplement that helps promote existing hair growth. Results of thicker, fuller hair can be seen in as little as 3-6 months.
  • Nutrafol. A dietary supplement that uses a whole-body approach to address hair thinning and growth. The proprietary blend of ingredients assists in lowering DHT and reducing stress.

For most dealing with pattern hair loss, it is important to complement each of the above options for the best results. To learn more about which are best to use for your situation, contact the hair loss experts at Lisa S. Ball, NP today.

What is Viviscal PRO?

Viviscal PRO is a 100% drug-free dietary supplement that nourishes thinning hair and promotes healthier hair growth from within.

 How does Viviscal PRO work?

Viviscal PRO is scientifically formulated with the proprietary AminoMar marine complex which helps to nourish thinning hair and encourage existing hair growth.

 How often do I need to take it?

Take one tablet twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, with food and water. It is suggested to take that dosage for at least 6 months for the best results.

How long will it take to see progress?

Patients may notice progress in as little as 3 months.

 Will I need to take it forever?

No, it is recommended to take it for 8-9 months (however, most patients continue to take Viviscal beyond that timeframe for their overall hair health). The first 6 months, twice a day. Then in the following 2-3 months, just once a day. After that, if the thinning of the hair starts again, it is recommended for the patient to find out if there is an underlying cause at play. Most of the time, if the underlying reason for hair thinning is not being managed, the excess shedding will continue.

As you can see, Viviscal PRO is an ideal option for patients looking to improve the look and feel of their hair. Contact our office today to get started.
