Every woman desires thick, silky, smooth, and shiny hair. For men, it is simpler, but the goal is similar - a thick, full head of hair. Hair thinning and loss is one of the most emotionally charged concerns that patients present with. It is anything but superficial. Hair is deeply intertwined with our self-esteem. Dr. Day is considered an expert in the fight against hair loss. She is an active participant in many conferences that focus on advancing treatment options and understands that hair growth is complicated. The same hormones that cause you to have hair loss on your scalp can cause you to grow unwanted hair on your body. We don’t understand all of the mechanisms of hair loss yet, so it’s difficult to promise that a single mode of treatment will be effective. For every patient, Dr. Day recommends managing stress and diet along with using one, or a combination, of hair growth treatments to help maintain and grow the healthiest, most beautiful hair possible. Not all dermatologists are comfortable treating hair loss, but Dr. Day can properly assess your condition and review the best treatments for you.
Finally, there is an easy and effective solution to thinning hair available to you. Dr. Day has customized her Fotona laser protocol, which uses laser energy to stimulate dormant hair follicles without anesthesia or surgery. A session is quick, easy, painless, and effective, making the treatment extremely popular among our patients with hair loss concerns.
Treatments using PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, have been gaining popularity in recent years as research groups around the world have demonstrated its effectiveness in growing new, more robust hair. PRP is rich in essential nutrients and growth factors that are believed to help decrease inflammation and stimulate new follicular hair growth. While PRP therapy is not suitable for every hair loss patient, when it works, it really works. We achieve dramatic results in hair regrowth by combining PRP with Hairlase treatment. We are seeing first hand how PRP transforms our patients' lives.
Dr. Day's specific dosing of cortisone minimizes any systemic effect or damage to the surrounding collagen or skin while still being effective against a broad range of hair loss issues. Cortisone injections are one of the most popular treatment options for hair loss patients as they are quick, easy, and effective.
