Hair Growth Q & A

What causes hair loss?

Before Dr. Armstrong can develop a treatment plan to help regrow your hair, she needs to know why you lost it. Common causes include:

  • Heredity
  • Hormones
  • Radiation to the head
  • Certain medications
  • Stress

 

Even certain types of hairstyles and treatments can lead to hair loss.

Dr. Armstrong conducts thorough diagnostic testing to determine what may have caused you to start losing your hair, and she uses that information to develop a comprehensive treatment plan aimed at stopping the loss, stimulating growth, and protecting your hair.

Hair loss can affect both men and women, but it’s more common in men.

 

How can I stop hair loss?

Once Dr. Armstrong knows what caused your hair loss, she develops tools to help prevent further loss by slowing down hair shedding and protecting the hair you have on your head. This may include:

  • Change in hair products
  • Using gentler hair grooming techniques
  • Tips for managing stress
  • Addition of supplements or medication to stop hair loss
  • Change in medication that may be causing hair loss

 

While Dr. Armstrong can help regrow your hair, if you haven’t taken steps to minimize hair loss, you may end up back where you started.

 

What techniques are available for hair growth?

Dr. Armstrong uses a combination of Eastern and Western medical tools to improve hair growth. Her treatments include:

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections
  • Custom topical prescriptions
  • Supplements
  • Prescription medications aimed at growing hair

 

When Dr. Armstrong learns what is causing your hair loss, she can suggest the treatment most likely to help you.

 

How do PRP and stem cell injections help my hair growth?

PRP and stem cells are a form of regenerative medicine. PRP is a blood product rich in specialized proteins and growth factors aimed at healing, while stem cells are blank cells that have the ability to morph into any type of cell your body needs.

Dr. Armstrong injects PRP and stem cells directly into your scalp to stimulate the production of new hair follicles and increase hair growth to give you a thicker, fuller head of hair. This is a fairly new technique for hair regrowth that’s showing promising results.

To get the most benefits, you may need a series of injections. Dr. Armstrong develops an individualized treatment plan so you know what to expect before you get started.
