What Is Hair Loss Treatment? Hair loss can be devastating. It affects men and women and can strike at different times of life. Some people lose their hair rapidly and others slowly. Sometimes hair grows back and sometimes it does not. Many people feel helpless when they experience hair loss. Fortunately, however, there are a number of hair loss treatments for men and women that have been shown to help. What Are the Types of Hair Loss? Both men and women experience hair loss in various areas. While the scalp is the area that concerns most people, hair loss can occur in other places as well. Facial hair like eyebrows, beards or mustaches can become thin for various reasons. Body hair may also be lost due to hormonal imbalances or other factors. Hair loss treatments can be used for the scalp, face, and body to give patients confidence in their appearance. Hair loss treatments can be divided into three main categories (temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent), based on how long the treatment lasts. Medical therapies require continued and repeated use in order to maintain efficacy. Other more procedural hair loss treatments last longer after single treatments. The treatment options below are geared towards the most common cause of hair loss, androgenic alopecia.

    Hair Transplant

    A hair transplant is a procedure in which a plastic or dermatological surgeon moves hair to a bald area of the head. This procedure involves moving hair from the back or side of the head to the front or top of the head. City Facial Plastics in New York, under the management of a top-rated plastic surgeon Dr. Linkov, uses the latest FUE transplant techniques and works with the most experienced hair technicians for the purpose of creating the best and most beautiful hair implant results for patients in NYC. What Is a Hair Transplant? A Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that takes hair from one part of the body and moves it to another. In the past, results looked unnatural and recovery was painful. Now, using the latest technologies and techniques, beautiful hair restoration is possible. And the best part is that a hair implant is permanent when performed on the appropriate candidate. What Are the Causes of Hair Loss? The most common type of hair loss is due to genetic factors, called androgenetic alopecia. This can affect men and women but results in a different phenotypic pattern. In men, the frontal and temporal recession is common and is further classified by the Hamilton-Norwood scale. In women, there is a preservation of the frontal-most hairs but the central scalp shows thinning and that is best classified by the Ludwig scale. Other reasons for hair loss include: Medications Hormonal changes Autoimmune Injury Stress Certain hairstyles Read more info: https://cityfacialplastics.com/hair-transplant/ City Facial Plastics 635 Madison Ave #1402E, New York, NY 10022 (212) 439-5177 https://cityfacialplastics.com

    Female Hair Loss Treatment

    Female hair loss treatment is referred to as any procedure that aims to stimulate hair growth and stop hair loss. Thinning or lost hair can be devastating to a woman’s self-confidence in their appearance. At City Facial Plastics, located in Manhattan, NYC, we offer advanced hair growth treatments for women to restore lost hair and self-confidence. Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced women hair loss treatment specialist and facial plastic surgeon in New York who has extensive experience treating hair loss, especially in women. What Is Hair Loss Treatment for Women? Fortunately, members of the medical community do have an understanding of the common types of hair loss in women and the best hair loss treatment for women. Before treatment can be rendered, it is critical to do a thorough medical investigation into the reason for the hair loss. For women, unlike men, there are often several reasons for hair loss. There is some overlap with hair loss treatment options for men, though certain unique scenarios exist for female hair loss treatment restoration. What Is the Evaluation of Female Hair Loss? History Obtaining a sound hair loss history and medical history involves active listening. Most women really want to be heard and validated for their concerns. Many times multiple reasons for hair loss are at play and involve different organ systems such as: Nutrition Infection Emotion Chemical agents Medications Autoimmune The doctor needs to connect the dots to figure out all the possible reasons that hair loss may have occurred. When it comes to specific questions that are asked to further understand the type of hair loss involved, these may include: When did the hair loss start? What is the location of hair loss? Are there associated symptoms (burning, itching, pain)? Were there any prior hair restoration treatments? Which hair care products are used? Medical history is also important. Asking about past medical history, family history of hair loss, diet, and external stressors may be useful.

  5. Forehead reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the height of your forehead and balances the proportions of your face. Hairline lowering or advancement on the scalp, performed by the best-ranked plastic surgeon in New York Dr. Gary Linkov, can create a forehead reduction and improve the overall appearance of the face and hair. At City Facial Plastics, located in Midtown, Manhattan, we offer different options for lowering the hairline, depending on the individual. What Is Forehead Reduction? Forehead reduction, or hairline lowering surgery, refers to a surgical procedure that shortens the forehead by removing upper forehead skin and therefore lowers the hairline. It is more common in women because of the stability of the forehead hairline compared to men who frequently experience hairline recession from male pattern baldness. While forehead reduction most often refers to a surgical hairline advancement, another option is a hair transplant to lower the hairline and reduce the forehead. What Is Scalp Lowering? One of the quickest options for forehead reduction is scalp lowering. This involves a surgical movement of the scalp and hairline forward or lower on the forehead. This is best for “loose” scalps that can be surgically altered and is almost exclusively performed on women. This method is often preferred as It can bring the hairline forward up to two inches. It is equivalent to performing about 6,000 hair follicle grafts, all in one procedure. Hair Grafting Hair grafting, or transportation, can also be used for lowering the hairline. This is popular for both men and women with high or receding hairlines. Some women may not be good candidates for scalp lowering. This is if they just need their hairline rounded, have a tight scalp or have had brow lifts. They may consider hair transplants instead. We use FUE hair transplants utilizing advanced technology, like the Trivellini System, for improved results.

    PRP for Hair Loss

    PRP for hair loss is an excellent hair restoration option with ample scientific literature to support its use. Platelet-rich plasma is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. Dr. Gary Linkov is the best-in-class facial plastic surgeon in New York who has advanced knowledge of underlying disease processes and is up-to-date on the latest therapies, offering his patients top of the line care. City Facial Plastic, located in Manhattan, NY, offers the most effective treatment options for hair loss. What Is PRP for Hair Loss? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves autologous platelets in plasma (from your own body) that are combined with a plethora of growth factors. Activated platelets secrete growth factors and cytokines during the healing process. These growth factors, found within the alpha granules of platelets, influence stem cells, stimulating the development of new hair follicles and vasculature. Though a lack of standardized protocols in preparing PRP and evaluating the results exist, numerous studies have shown that PRP administered to the scalp can temporarily reverse progressive hair thinning. The delivery methods for scalp PRP involve either the use of needles to administer the local anesthesia and/or the PRP or a needleless option called JetPeel PRP. The discomfort associated with the needle-based delivery paradigm is an important reason for patients not to return for additional treatments or to avoid the procedure altogether. JetPeel PRP is a needleless method that delivers scalp PRP in a painless fashion, obviating the need for local anesthesia. Dr. Linkov was one of the first doctors in the world to offer JetPeel PRP for hair restoration. Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP for Hair Loss? PRP treatment for hair loss is primarily offered to patients with a classic androgenic alopecia pattern of hair loss. However, certain other hair loss conditions, such as alopecia areata and telogen effluvium, have had demonstrated success with PRP. In treating androgenic alopecia patients it is important to target areas of existing miniaturized hairs and not areas with no visible hair at all (bald).
