What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can be the product of genetics, age, stress, medical conditions, medications, hormonal changes, or other factors.

Fortunately, hair loss resulting from many of these factors is usually manageable. The most significant contributing factor to whether your hair loss can be reversed is the timeliness of diagnosis and treatment. The sooner that the cause of your hair loss can be identified, the faster you can begin treatment and the greater your odds of reversing or preventing further hair loss.

Treatments for hair restoration

Marotta Hair Restoration offers hair loss treatments to suit every patient’s unique needs. From prevention to restoration, Dr. James Marotta will treat your hair loss with the safest, most effective, and most practical solutions available today to help patients at every stage of hair loss.

PRP for hair loss

PRP for hair loss is a regenerative treatment that utilizes your natural growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration within the scalp. PRP or platelet-rich plasma is a substance found in the blood containing concentrated growth factors that, when injected, promote repair of nearby cells. Using a small sample, Dr. Marotta will isolate your PRP with a centrifuge before strategically injecting this natural and ultra-rejuvenating substance into your scalp. PRP for hair loss requires no downtime and is exceptionally well-tolerated as it does not involve the use of synthetic or foreign ingredients.

FUE

FUE or follicular unit extraction involves harvesting healthy follicles for transplantation into areas affected by hair loss. Each follicle is meticulously implanted into the targeted area, ultimately restoring growth. In addition, the careful transplant of individual follicles produces a completely natural look without the lines or scarring associated with earlier technologies. Many patients choose FUE for hair loss due to a variety of causes and as a corrective treatment for unwanted results from a previous procedure or injury. FUE has the capability to deliver dramatic results with minimal downtime compared to FUT.

Strip hair restoration

The strip method for hair restoration is the most invasive option, though it also yields the most dramatic results. This surgical procedure involves the excision of a strip of tissue (usually from the back of the head in men and other areas in women) which is implanted into various areas of the scalp where hair loss is most evident. As hair in the back of the head lacks the receptors needed to be affected by the hormone that causes hair loss, strip hair restoration produces long-lasting results.

Non-invasive treatments for hair loss

Marotta Hair Restoration also offers non-invasive treatments for hair loss. These treatments are ideal for patients who would like to treat or prevent mild to moderate hair loss and can also be used in combination with other treatment options for patients whose hair loss is more advanced.

Laser hair therapy

Laser hair therapy or NeoLTS non-invasively stimulates cellular repair and enhances blood flow in the scalp. This treatment is very well tolerated, with no side effects, discomfort during treatment, or downtime. With enhanced cellular health and nutrition, your hair will be prompted to transition from its resting phase into its new growth cycle.

Topical treatment for hair loss

The Marotta Daily Scalp Treatment involves the topical application of a prescription-grade FDA-approved medicated solution and can effortlessly be incorporated into your daily routine for treatment that is both effective and convenient. Our Finasteride and Minoxidil solution supports hair follicle health and manipulates your hair’s growth cycle to shorten the resting phase and lengthen the active growth phase. With the Marotta Daily Scalp Treatment, you can treat male pattern baldness without the harmful side effects associated with oral administration.

The hair growth cycle

Hair growth occurs in a cycle involving four distinct stages: the anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen phases. During the anagen or active growth phase, your hair grows to its optimal length. At any time, approximately 85 to 90% of your hair is in the anagen phase.

Next, your hair will enter the catagen phase in which the hair follicle will shrink, and growth will slow until it ceases entirely. The catagen phase lasts about two to three weeks. Next, the hair follicle will enter the telogen or resting phase, where it will stay for approximately 100 days. Lastly, the hair follicle will enter the exogen phase and detach from the scalp completely, paving the way for the entire cycle to begin again. While some treatments for hair loss work through the direct transplantation of healthy hair follicles or addressing hormonal factors, others aim to manipulate the hair’s growth cycle to lengthen the growth phase and shorten the resting phase.

Alternative solution for hair loss

For patients interested in taking an alternative approach to enhancing their appearance, Marotta Hair Restoration also offers Micropigmentation or the tattooing of the scalp to conceal hair loss. Compared to traditional tattooing, Micropigmentation does not require the needle to penetrate the skin as deeply and is a more comfortable procedure. Micropigmentation offers some notable advantages over other treatments, including permanent results, minimal recovery, and no scarring.
