Hair Loss Started: 10 Years Ago
Hair Loss Prior to Treatment: Gradual

Sarah was a new patient to the Medi Tresse Scarsdale, NY office. Her hair loss gradually started 10 years prior to her visit, but it had become quite advanced.
Previously, Sarah had tried some hair loss serums and specialized shampoo and conditioners, but her hair loss continued to get worse. Sarah eventually got a scalp biopsy at another practice, which confirmed the cause of her hair loss was androgenic alopecia, also known as female pattern hair loss (FPHL).
Sarah came to Medi Tresse seeking a treatment plan that would help to stop the loss and ideally regrow some of the hair she had lost. After completing her initial consultation with Medi Tresse, the team agreed with Sarah’s previous biopsy and confirmed that she was experiencing an advanced stage of androgenic alopecia.
With all of our treatments, we have three main goals: stop further loss, make the hair you have thicker, healthier, and if possible regrow hair. We like to remind all of our patients that attaining any of these goals is a success.
Sarah and the Medi Tresse team decided that in order to give Sarah the best chance at meeting her treatment goals, it would be important to utilize a combination approach to treatment, so that the follicle could be treated at all levels. The treatment plan for Sarah included three treatments of Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, which is Medi Tresse’s more advanced form of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, the LaserCap HD+, hair loss supplements, and minoxidil.
Medi Tresse offers an exclusive version of PRP Therapy in Westchester, NY is called Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, which is more advanced and allows for a personalized approach to treatment. Each treatment is customized to the patient based on their in-office platelet count to better deliver the optimal number of platelets directly to the scalp to support blood vessel restoration and hair regeneration. LLLT Therapy in Westchester, NY is also utilized in combination to help support the female hair loss.
The LaserCap HD+ is an innovative, medical-grade device that utilizes Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to stimulate hair follicle growth. When combined with Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, it is an extremely powerful treatment regimen for female pattern hair loss as both treatments heal the follicle in different ways. While the Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy is providing platelets and growth factors to heal the follicle, the LLLT has been shown to accelerate healing, increase blood flow to the follicle, and decrease inflammation in the scalp. The LaserCap HD+ is a non-surgical treatment option and can be used in the comfort of your own home.
Hair loss supplements and minoxidil are extremely important foundational treatments for almost any patient experiencing female pattern hair loss. While we would rarely use them as stand-alone treatments, they are great supportive treatments when utilizing PRP therapy or LLLT. Hair loss supplements ensure that the hair follicles are getting the vital nutrients and vitamins that they need to grow healthy hair. Minoxidil is the only FDA approved topical for female hair loss and is now being utilized as both a topical and oral medication. Studies have shown that when using minoxidil with PRP or LLLT, the results are better than when just using either as a stand-alone treatment.
Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy is available at the following Medi Tresse locations: Boston, Worcester, Westchester, New York City offices, and available soon at the Chattanooga office. The LaserCap® and LLLT are available at all locations.
Sarah had three treatments of Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy and has been utilizing LLLT, hair loss supplements, and minoxidil for about a year and has seen significant hair regrowth results.
Sarah is very happy with her current results and is hopeful that continued treatment will help with further regrowth. As a part of her treatment plan, Sarah will continue to do Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy booster treatments every 6 months and will continue utilizing LLLT in Westchester, NY, hair loss supplements, and minoxidil.
