How to Prevent Hair Loss in Norwich, CT

Hair Loss in Norwich, CTWith summer just around the corner, you know that the warmer temperatures mean that you have to find new and unique ways to hide your thinning hair and balding. Why continue to feel embarrassed when you can prevent hair loss? At Connecticut Surgical Arts, we offer treatments options for hair loss in men and women.

Does Hair Loss Treatment Really Work?

Hair loss happens for many reasons. You may be experiencing a side effect of a medication, chronic condition, hormonal changes, stress, and other factors. Before we recommend a treatment for hair loss, we determine why you are losing your hair. If our examination uncovers that you have a genetic predisposition to hair loss, our treatments may help slow hair loss and even help you grow hair in areas that are balding.

What Types of Hair Loss Can Be Prevented in Men and Women?

The two types of hair loss that can be prevented with our hair restoration services are male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. Both of these types of hair loss fall within the classification of androgenetic alopecia. Although the condition is the same, men and women tend to lose hair in different areas of the scalp. For men with this type of alopecia, hair loss starts in the temple area and crown of the head. Hair loss in women typically starts with a thinning over the entire scalp.

Micrograft Hair Transplants for Hair Loss in Men and Women

Our hair loss treatment for men and women include advanced micrograft hair transplant treatments. The technique that we use for hair transplants is superior to the standard “strip” transplants. Instead of removing a large section of tissue that contains hundreds of hairs, we use micrografts that contain a smaller number of hairs. The technique produces less scarring, requires less downtime and preserves a natural hairline. After harvesting the micrografts, we transplant the hair into the area where you are experiencing hair loss.

Hair Loss Treatment with PRP Therapy

PRP is a component of your blood that is extracted in our office and used to stimulate and enhance hair growth. PRP may be applied to the scalp after the transplant. We also offer PRP therapy for men and women who do not need hair transplants. In these cases, PRP is injected directly into the scalp. The growth factors help cells within the scalp to develop new viable hair, and the results look completely natural.

What to Expect After Your Hair Restoration Treatment

Hair grows in a cycle, and you may have some hairs that are close to the shedding stage when you have your hair loss treatments. These hairs will fall out and be replaced by new hairs. Full results depend on how quickly your hair grows. We recommend that you wait for at least two to four weeks before expecting to see visible results in your hair.
