Anyone can experience hair loss; young or old, male or female. Hair loss doesn’t discriminate. The loss or thinning of hair can be caused by age, disease, medications, or genetics. While anyone can experience thinning hair, men are especially susceptible to male pattern baldness, one of the most common causes of hair loss occurs in men.
According to the American Hair Loss Association, “Androgenetic Alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss, and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.”
Women, too, can experience hair loss for a number of reasons. According to the Mayo Clinic, “a variety of conditions can cause permanent or temporary hair loss, including hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and thyroid problems.”
Up until lately, the only methods available for dealing with hair loss were to cover the problem with a hairpiece or get surgical hair implants. Now, however, there are easy and effective ways to regrow hair naturally offered by Dr. Lo at About Faces.
KeraLase uses LaseMD, a low-level laser, creates tiny “micro-channels” in the scalp. These micro-channels increase the absorption of KeraFactor serum, which is topically applied to promote stronger, thicker, fuller-looking hair in men and women.
KeraFactor serum contains proprietary biomimetic synthetic versions of growth factors and proteins that will stimulate new hair growth. This FDA-approved KeraLase method of hair restoration has been proven to be safe and effective.
Six KeraLase treatments are most often scheduled over the course of three months, although more treatments may be necessary. Hair growth will continue to improve for 12-18 months. To learn more about KeraLase, see the video below or go to the KeraLase / KeraFactor website, which has a number of videos showing the procedure.
Another new technology is the use of red-light caps. While you may be familiar with some commercially available red-light caps, About Faces Cosmetic Surgery uses medical grade caps that are much more effective.
According to Dermatology Times, the red-light cap therapy is an LED, dual-wavelength device that utilizes low-level light therapy to reduce hair loss and promote growth. The red-light therapy is most effective when used in conjunction with KeraLase treatments.
