If you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from hair loss, you may be overwhelmed, or even happy, that there are so many options for treatment. However, it is important to remember that the most effective solutions come from an experienced hair loss surgeon like Dr. Gabriel Patino.
Since 1997, Dr. Patino has been helping patients in the Oakland, California area treat their current hair loss and prevent future loss from occurring. When you contact the Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito, Dr. Patino will work closely with you to provide a treatment option most suited to meet your individual needs.
What Are my Treatment Options for Hair Loss?
Over-the-counter hair replacement treatments such as Minoxidil are applied directly to the scalp twice daily. This and similar topical solutions for hair loss have been approved by the FDA, but it is still uncertain exactly how they work. However, the medication in these treatments is not nearly as powerful as that in prescription pills. Additionally, many patients find the application process to be burdensome.
Propecia, or Finasteride, is a prescription medication taken in pill form that works to reduce dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a byproduct of testosterone and a common cause of hair loss. Propecia is effective, but your results will not be nearly as noticeable as those with who have had hair transplant surgery.
What Is Hair Transplant Surgery in Oakland?
Hair transplant surgery offers the most obvious and immediate results. Hair is removed from an area on your head where it is abundant, called a donor site, and replaced in the areas where you are experiencing hair loss.
The transplanted hairs are yours, allowing up to 95% of them to remain alive, continue to grow, and thicken in the areas where you had previously experienced hair loss. However, a hair transplant will not prevent future hair loss as your area of baldness continues to grow. For this reason, Dr. Patino often suggests a combination of both hair transplant surgery and Propecia.
For patients who are adverse to long-term prescription medicine to treat their hair loss, Dr. Patino may recommend using a topical solution to prevent unaffected areas from thinning.
