PROPECIA® is available by prescription from Dr. Mark Bishara and is a once-a-day pill developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss, a hereditary condition that causes receding hairlines, thinning and/or balding on the top and front of the scalp. This product is proven effective for treating hair loss in MEN ONLY.
The active component in PROPECIA® is finasteride, which significantly reduces DHT, a major cause of hair loss, to prevent the affected hair follicles from shrinking any further and allowing hair to regrow.
Nine out of 10 men who took PROPECIA® saw visible results in both a reduction of further hair loss and regrowth of hair. Healthy hair usually grows about half an inch each month, so results may not appear for several months. If there is no improvement within one year, further treatment is unlikely to be effective. However, most men reported an increase in scalp hair within the first 12 months and enjoyed continuing improvement throughout treatment. For some men, PROPECIA® also slowed further hair loss.
There is a risk of certain side effects associated with PROPECIA®, including decreased sex drive, difficulty achieving erection, or a decrease in the amount of semen. Each of these side effects occurs in less than 2 percent of men taking PROPECIA®. It has also been established that inhibition of a certain enzyme can cause the male breast to engorge or a condition called gynecomastia. Patients should notify their doctor if any of these symptoms are present. PROPECIA® can also affect the results of prostate screening exams, so patients should always notify their physician if they are taking this medication.
PROPECIA® should not be handled by any women of childbearing age, as its active ingredient can cause abnormalities with the sex organs of a male baby. PROPECIA® pills are coated to protect against contact with the active ingredient during normal handling.

While nonsurgical treatment is preferred because of its minimally invasive nature and no need for anesthesia or downtime, patients with severe hair loss, or those that do not respond to more conservative treatments, may require surgery to restore hair loss and promote new hair growth. These procedures are designed to produce effective results with minimal downtime and no damage to surrounding hair follicles. Dr. Bishara is highly experienced in performing all of these procedures, and will help you determine which one is right for you in order to achieve the best possible results.
Eyebrow Restoration is a surgical procedure that requires precise attention to detail in order to restore a natural-looking eyebrow in patients who have lost part or all of their eyebrows. Although small and seemingly unimportant, the eyebrows play a crucial role in the appearance of the face, and losing one or both eyebrows can significantly alter this appearance, causing self-esteem problems within patients.
Eyebrow restoration uses single-hair micro-grafts that are inserted into this small space with the use of a needle at a designated angle. This allows for a natural appearance that can be customized to fit each patient's individual goals for the shape, length and overall appearance of their new eyebrows. Some patients may require two or more treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results. These sessions may be scheduled up to eight months apart in order to determine the results of the initial treatment before beginning a second treatment.
