4 Medical Treatments for Hair Loss

4 Medical Treatments for Hair Loss

Losing your hair is a hard pill to swallow. While hair restoration surgeries might suit some, not everyone will go under the knife. Not to mention, surgery comes with a high price tag and a long recovery time.

Are you looking for an affordable and effective way to resolve hair loss? Hair Doc, located in Cow Hollow, San Francisco, explains four medical treatments for hair loss, including prescription and non-prescription options. 


  1. Rogaine® 

Minoxidil, the brand known as Rogaine, is one of the most popular hair loss medications used by four million people worldwide. It is effective in improving some of the most common causes of hair loss, including:


Rogaine comes in a liquid or foam and is applied directly to your scalp 2-3 times a day. Treatment directs blood flow to your scalp, nourishing dormant hair follicles and encouraging them to reenter the growth phase. You might notice increased hair shedding around six weeks after treatment, but no need to worry — stronger and thicker hairs will soon replace them. 

The results are impressive but not immediate. You can expect to experience thicker, fuller hair around 3-4 months after starting treatment. 

       2. Procrinix® lotion

Procrinix hair revitalization is a three-part system containing synthesized biomimetic peptides. The first treatment of its kind, Procrinix halts hair loss and thickens hair strands, so you experience a fuller hairline in 3-6 months.

Treatment involves:

These three products contain complementary ingredients that provide synergistic results when used daily. Procrinix is safe, easy, and provides reliable results.

         3. Propecia® 

Finasteride is an FDA-approved medication sold under the name, Propecia, to help treat hair loss. In a clinically controlled study, 80% of men who used Propecia preserved their original hair follicle counts. But how does it work?

Propecia works by blocking the activity of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme converts testosterone into another hormone that causes hair loss in men. Taking Propecia increases testosterone in your body and, as a result, provides thicker hair. 

Propecia is a medication that should be taken daily to help restore hair growth in men only. Men who use Propecia as directed can experience an improvement in their hairline around 3-6 months. 

         4. Laser cap

Disguised as a baseball hat, the laser cap can be worn as you read, work, or watch TV. Just wear it for 30 minutes every other day and experience increased hair growth in three to six months.

The laser cap contains low-level-laser diodes that work to re-energize dormant hair follicles. Cells deep in your scalp absorb the red laser light and convert it into energy, improving cellular respiration and giving you thicker, fuller hair.
