Finding the best hair restoration method for you
Throughout history, men and women have sought solutions for hair loss. Today, finding the best hair restoration method for you requires the expertise of a compassionate, knowledgeable professional. As an Aesthetic Medicine Specialist, Dr. Adam Maddox provides that service for Thrive patients.
No single hair restoration method is right for everyone. Determining the best for your situation requires consideration of essential points:
- How advanced is your hair loss? If you are completely bald, a hair system (toupee or wig) may be the only option. Significant balding may require hair transplantation surgery. Fortunately, those who take action as soon as they recognize thinning have many more options.
- How busy is your day? Can you reasonably expect to stick to a schedule of topical application twice a day, or a program of nutritional supplements?
- What is your tolerance for discomfort? Hair transplant surgery typically takes four to eight hours, and has a healing period up to ten days.
Shedding light on hair loss
Thrive offers a noninvasive, drug-free solution that is safe and effective, and it isn’t even messy – low level light therapy. This treatment delivers light energy to the scalp, increasing blood flow and oxygen supply to follicles, and boosting cellular metabolism. It jump-starts about 70 percent of hairs that are in the resting phase to the growth phase.
This method is sometimes called cold or soft laser therapy because the wavelength of light produces no burning sensation. You simply relax and read or watch television during each painless 20-minute session. Dr. Maddox customizes a treatment plan based on your level of hair loss, but usually, two to three sessions per week are needed to stabilize shedding and re-grow hair.
In less than four months, you can have thicker, stronger hair. Call Thrive at (503) 928-6505 to start your transformation.
