Alex was a new patient to the Medi Tresse Scarsdale, NY office. Her hair loss gradually started approximately 10 years ago. Her concern was that her hair would grow inconsistently and have periods of shedding that reverses the growth. She also has thin hair and would use hair powder to conceal it.
In the past, Alex tried Vegamour and biotin supplements, as well as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. She came to Medi Tresse seeking a solution to regrow her hair and stop the periods of shedding, as well as increase the overall density of her hair. She booked her initial consultation and was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia, which is also known as Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL).
FPHL is the most common cause of hair thinning and hair miniaturization. Hair follicle miniaturization is when the follicle is constricted and therefore produces thinner hair shafts that easily fall out. If not treated, the affected hair will continue to get smaller and disappear completely.
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.
Alex and the Medi Tresse team decided that the best treatment plan for her would be three treatments of Painless Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, Minoxidil, and hair loss supplements.
Applied to the scalp, Painless OPC therapy utilizes a medical device that delivers powerful mist jet streams that infuse into the scalp through hydroporation, turning the PRP into droplets and entering the scalp subdermally. Painless OPC treatments are 100% non-invasive and comfortable. Currently, Painless OPC Therapy is available at all of our locations.
Minoxidil is a topical formula to help promote hair growth, and most commonly known for assisting with the effects of androgenetic alopecia, or Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL).
In addition to Minoxidil and Painless Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy, she has also been utilizing hair loss supplements as a part of her treatment plan. Supplements for hair regrowth are also important for any individual going through female hair loss.
Painless Optimal Platelet Concentration™ Therapy and Minoxidil are available at the following Medi Tresse locations: Boston, Worcester, Westchester, New York City offices, and the Chattanooga office.
Alex had three treatments of Painless OPC Therapy at the Westchester, NY Medi Tresse office. All three treatments were four weeks apart and over the course of the eight months, she has seen significant hair regrowth results.
Alex is happy with the current 8-month results and will be continuing the treatment plan. As a part of her treatment plan, Alex will continue to do booster treatments every 6 months with Painless OPC Therapy and continue with Minoxidil and hair loss supplements.
