Propecia is a prescription oral medication that works to block the DHT hormone in the scalp that contributes to hair loss. Minoxidil, or more commonly known as the over-the-counter topical treatment Rogaine, works in the same way as Propecia to prevent hair loss and promote hair regrowth. Low-level laser light therapy is also a painless way to decrease hair loss and improve hair thickness and volume. By using a cold laser, multiple treatments deliver energy to the scalp, which stimulates hair follicles, increases blood supply, and stops the advancement of hair loss. Please schedule a consultation to review your other treatment options.
