The solution is formulated to include a 5% solution for men a 2% solution concentrated for women. Minoxidil must be used indefinitely for continued support and maintaining existing hair.
 

 

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment


 
Our blood plasma is known to contain active growth factors that promote hair growth. So how is a PRP done?  Our own blood is drawn and placed in to a centrifuge where it spins for about 10 to 15 minutes so that only the enriched platelets remain. Once separated into a different syringe using a thin needle the PRP is injected in to the scalp and all areas that will be treated for hair loss. Local anesthetic is used to help with any discomfort. The treatment takes about an hr to and hr and a half and the results are safe and reliable.
 

Propcecia/Finasteride


 
Propecia/Finasteride is a one a day pill used to treat male pattern baldness and hair loss on the vertex and mid scalp. Propecia is made only for the use on men. Women should not use propecia as it can cause birth defects in a fetus. Six months into treatment is when men typically  see improvement.
