How does hair grow?

In order to understand how hair growth therapies work, we must first discuss the body’s natural mechanism for hair growth. Hair growth is a process involving four distinct phases, including the anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen phases.

The anagen or growth phase grows your hair to its full length. At any given time, approximately 85 to 90% of your hair is in the anagen phase. Once your hair achieves its maximal length, it will move into the catagen phase. During this phase, the hair follicle shrinks, and growth deceleration occurs until it stalls completely. This takes about two to three weeks.

At this point, the hair enters the telogen phase, in which the hair follicle rests for about 100 days until it ultimately detaches from the scalp. The point at which the hair is shed is called the exogen phase. Following this phase, the hair enters the anagen phase once again, repeating the cycle.

What are my hair growth treatment options?

Marotta Hair Restoration offers a variety of treatment modalities to treat hair loss caused by its most common contributing factors. Dr. James Marotta considers every aspect of your needs to provide you with an optimally designed and personalized treatment plan.

Topical treatment for hair growth

The Marotta Hair Growth Serum is a topical therapy that you can seamlessly blend into your everyday routine to promote hair health and growth. Our prescription-grade topical solution includes the only two topical hair medications approved by the FDA to prevent and treat male pattern baldness without the unwanted side effects associated with oral administration. Depending on the cause and extent of your hair loss and medical history, The Marotta Hair Growth Serum is excellent as a standalone treatment or as a supplement to other therapies for hair loss. Upon prescription, we provide patients with a three-month supply to ensure that your treatment is as convenient as it is effective.

Laser hair therapy

Laser hair therapy is a comfortable, non-invasive hair growth treatment option, with no side effects or downtime. Low-level laser therapy or LLLT promotes cellular metabolism to stimulate the natural repair of hair follicles and increases blood flow to provide hair follicles with enhanced nutrition. Laser hair therapy stimulates hair growth and prompts the transition of approximately 70% of treated follicles from the resting phase to the new growth phase. LLLT is most commonly used as a treatment for androgenetic alopecia in men and women. However, it may also be ideal for patients experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy, hormonal changes, or other forms of alopecia. Like the Marotta Topical Daily Treatment, laser hair therapy is a fantastic supplemental therapy to our other treatments.

PRP for hair growth

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a concentrated substance naturally found within the blood that contains growth factors for dramatic cellular repair. For this treatment, one of our skilled specialists will use a small sample of your blood to harvest the PRP for injection into your scalp. Once drawn, he will place your blood in a centrifuge to isolate your PRP and then inject it into target areas strategically. As this natural hair loss therapy relies purely on your own growth factors, there is no risk of your body rejecting the PRP. This treatment offers substantial results with no downtime and is considered ideal for patients with alopecia areata. PRP for hair loss is regarded as an advanced alternative to steroid injections.


FUE is a hair transplant technique that allows for more successful transplant with less invasive treatment. FUE or follicular unit extraction involves the meticulous harvesting of healthy hair follicles for implant into targeted areas of the scalp. By transplanting healthy follicles individually, results from FUE look completely natural. FUE is an effective treatment for hair loss due to a variety of factors. It is also an ideal solution for patients who have scarring from an injury, surgery, or previous treatment for hair loss that they would like to conceal. With FUE, you can achieve natural-looking hair restoration and return to work the following day.

What are the benefits of hair growth therapies?

Hair growth therapies offer excellent benefits for patients who would like to address hair loss in addition to those who simply want fuller, healthier hair. With lusher, thicker hair, you can achieve a more youthful, attractive appearance and enhanced self-confidence. Marotta Hair Restoration employs only the most effective and well-tolerated treatments to suit a variety of needs and lifestyles.

How do hair growth therapies work?

Treatments for hair loss work by fueling growth with nutrients, manipulating the growth cycle, or addressing factors that contribute to hair loss.

Determining the “right treatment” is entirely subjective as no two patients present the exact same circumstances surrounding their hair loss. To address your hair loss as precisely and effectively as possible, Dr. Marotta will shape your treatment plan to suit your hair’s current condition, the history of your hair loss, face shape, medical history, lifestyle, and any medication you are taking.
