Medical Treatments for Hair Loss in Ann Arbor

Hair transplantation can be highly effective for restoring a full and youthful hairline, but it is a big step. Maybe you’re not quite ready for surgery, but you do miss having a full head of hair. 

We understand. Balance Hair Restoration is run by Dr. Pramit Malhotra, a hair restoration patient himself. He’s tried just about every hair loss treatment available, including hair transplantation. If surgery isn’t a good fit for you right now, there may be other treatment options available. 

Don’t try to navigate hair loss on your own. If you’re experiencing thinning or balding, you need the help of a dermatologist or hair restoration expert like Dr. Malhotra. Talk with your dermatologist or give us a call to schedule a consultation with our double board-certified plastic surgeon and hair restoration expert.

Which Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments Are Available?

Hair restoration surgery is just one tool in our toolkit of options to help you enjoy a full and vibrant head of hair. Non-surgical treatments are available too. These treatments use medications, lasers, and other therapies to stop or slow hair loss. Many of these less invasive treatment options are highly effective, especially if they are started early in the hair loss process. 

There are many medical and non-surgical treatment options for hair loss including:

  • Finasteride
  • Rogaine
  • Himms Protocol
  • Nutrafol
  • Laser Cap
  • Nizoral

Each of these treatments targets hair loss differently. Some modify hormones to help reduce hormone-related hair loss and male pattern baldness. Other treatments work by increasing the time that hair is actively growing. By having many treatment options available, we can address more types of hair loss and help patients to find an effective solution, even if you’ve tried hair loss treatments in the past without success. 

Dr. Malhotra may recommend one or more of these treatments to stop or slow your hair loss.

Keys to Getting Results from Medical Treatments for Hair Loss

Hair loss is complex. Addressing its root causes requires a knowledgeable medical provider. At Balance Hair Restoration, our team has more than 50 years of combined experience, working at top hair restoration practices around the world. We use our experience to help you create a plan to restore your hairline and feel confident in your appearance again. 

Getting the best results from medical treatments for hair loss can be difficult. These tips have helped us to increase our success in helping men and women suffering from hair loss in Michigan.

Our customized treatment plans optimize each patient’s chances of success. We realize that hair loss is individual and treat each patient as a person, with personalized treatment plans that focus on their unique hair loss situation. 

We integrate Dr. Malhotra into your treatment plan from your very first visit. By working with a board-certified plastic surgeon from the first stages of your hair restoration treatment, we can create a long-term plan and achieve better results. 

Medical treatments for hair loss usually work best in the earliest stages of hair loss. By the time hair loss is noticeable, you’ve probably already lost 50% of your hair. Visiting your doctor at the first sign of hair loss is important for stopping future losses and maintaining the quality of your hair. 

There are many effective treatments for hair loss, but they need to be used consistently to be effective. Often hair that has been regrown using topical and oral therapies will fall out again once treatment is stopped. Work with your doctor to create a treatment plan and stick with it. Always talk with your doctor before stopping or modifying your medications. 

Hair loss happens for many reasons. While genetics are the primary cause of male pattern baldness, they aren’t the only cause of hair loss. Medications, medical conditions, hormonal changes, and stress can also contribute to hair loss. We recommend that patients work with a dermatologist to understand their hair loss. Finding the root cause of your hair thinning can help medical treatments to last longer and be more effective. 

There are limits to medical hair loss treatments. We can often stop, slow, or delay hair loss, but medical treatments may not be able to regrow hair or recreate a youthful hairline. 

Medical and non-surgical treatments for hair loss are often useful after hair restoration surgery. These treatments can help extend and maintain the results from your FUE hair transplant procedure, ensuring your hairline will look as great in 10 years as it does today.

Not Ready for a Hair Transplant? Non-Surgical Options

It may not be the right time for surgery. That’s okay. You can still treat hair thinning and loss at Balance Hair Restoration. 

Non-surgical and medical treatments for hair loss are an ideal go-between when the timing isn’t right for hair restoration surgery. There are many variables that can determine the right timing for you. 

One important factor to consider is your age. Dr. Malhotra does not recommend hair transplant surgery before patients are 25 or 26 years old. Younger patients can still experience significant hair loss and medical treatments are useful during this time period. 

Under the age of 25, hair loss patterns are still establishing. It is impossible to predict future hairlines or to choose an effective donor area. By waiting for hair restoration surgery until these patterns are established, Dr. Malhotra can create better results that will last longer. He often recommends Propecia to stabilize the hair loss and active monitoring until hair loss patterns can be determined and hair restoration surgery scheduled.
