Non-Surgical Solutions For Hair Loss

Wigs, weaves and scarves can help disguise the effects of hair loss, but the only permanent solution is a medical treatment provided by a plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or hair-restoration physician.

Depending on the severity of the hair loss and the results you're looking for, female pattern hair loss can be treated non-surgically with a topical treatment like minoxidil. Light-based therapy, which is painless, can also be effective by using diode lasers to improve blood flow and cell function, ultimately thickening hair and causing growth.

Typically, a year of light-based therapy followed by monthly maintenance treatments is the necessary protocol. Many choose to combine laser treatments with hair-restoration surgery for optimal results.

    I am the Director of Professional Services at Lexington International here in Boca Raton. I thought that it might be informative to point out that Lexington manufactures the home use laser phototherapy device, the HairMax LaserComb(r) which has proven efficacy in the treatment of heriditary baldness in males. While the device does not yet have FDA clearance for marketing to treat hereditary baldness in females, many physicians have chosen to treat their female patients with the HairMax and report results with this gender that parallels the results seen in males with the condition. Additionally, we have received hundreds of anecdotal reports from females who have chosen to use the device, that it made a substantial difference in their condition. Since the HairMax LaserComb is the only medical device to treat pattern baldness that has received FDA 510(k) Clearance for Marketing, we thought that your readers might want to know about this highly effectiv, easy to use treatment option.
