This treatment page aims to outline the various options available to our patients, highlighting our commitment to helping you regain a full and healthy head of hair. Ultimately, Dr. Glodny utlizes a multi prong approach allowing you too regain as much hair density as possible.
Dr. Glodny may recommend prescription medications to slow down or halt hair loss progression and stimulate hair regrowth. The two primary medications commonly prescribed for male hair loss are:
- Finasteride (Propecia) or Dutasteride: An oral medication that works by inhibiting the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone responsible for hair follicle shrinkage and hair loss. Finasteride can help maintain existing hair and promote regrowth in some cases.
- Minoxidil (low dose): An oral pill that works by influencing your hair growth cycles. It stimulates hair growth and can be an effective option for patients experiencing make pattern baldness as well as any other type of hair loss condition.
- Patient Tailored Topical Therapy: Dr. Glodny is a globally recognized hair expert and has even created his own cocktail topical treatment including a mix of topical medications and ingredients geared at treating hair loss of all kinds. Each ingredient works to synergistically improve hair thickness and rate of hair growth.
2. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy:
PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the body's natural healing properties. A small sample of your blood is processed to extract concentrated platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial components. The resulting PRP solution is then injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth, improve hair density, and strengthen existing hair follicles. Dr. Glodny will determine the number and frequency of PRP sessions based on individual needs.
3. Hair Transplantation:
For patients seeking a more permanent solution, hair transplantation may be recommended, and Dr. Glodny can help you find the perfect hair transplant surgeon. This surgical procedure involves removing healthy hair follicles from donor areas and transplanting them to areas experiencing hair loss or thinning. Dr. Glodny’s preferred specialists utilize follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplantation (FUT), to ensure natural-looking and long-lasting results.
4. Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT):
LLLT is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes low-energy laser devices to stimulate hair growth. These devices emit red light that penetrates the scalp and stimulates cellular activity in hair follicles. LLLT can help improve hair thickness, promote hair regrowth, and enhance overall hair quality. Dr. Glodny will guide you on the appropriate frequency and duration of LLLT sessions.
5. Lifestyle Modifications and Nutritional Support:
Dr. Glodny recognizes the importance of a holistic approach to hair loss treatment. He may provide guidance on lifestyle modifications, such as stress reduction techniques and dietary recommendations, to support overall hair health. Additionally, nutritional supplements rich in vitamins and minerals essential for hair growth may be recommended.
