As much as 40% of women and 85% of men will experience hair loss or hair thinning at some point and can have a significant impact on a person’s perceived attractiveness and self-esteem. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, come on suddenly or gradually and can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or a normal part of aging. Starting treatment as soon as you recognize the early signs of hair loss can improve the success of treatment and prevent it from getting worse. REN provides expert care for those seeking hair restoration treatments that work.
Treatment options that work
With thousands of hair products on the market, determining which treatments actually work can be overwhelming. We will simplify the process for you by listing the treatments that our providers at REN recommend.
1. PRP (platelet rich plasma) Therapy. PRP is derived from your own blood obtained by a simple blood draw and is a concentration of your body’s healing cells that are injected directly in the scalp in the areas you are experiencing hair loss. PRP triggers natural hair growth and maintains it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. REN providers specialize in PRP therapy so you can feel confident in the skill level and care offered to you. We recommend 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart and then maintenance every 6 months. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and there is no recovery downtime or side effects. Watch a PRP Hair Restoration treatment from REN.
2. Nutrafol hair supplements. Nutrafol is for anyone experiencing hair loss or for those wanting to prevent future hair loss. Nutrafol works differently than most hair vitamins, it addresses multiple factors that cause hair loss such as stress, hormone imbalance, metabolism, lifestyle, and aging. Nutrafol also complements other hair loss treatments. REN offers the entire line of Nutrafol supplements targeted for women, perimenopausal women, postpartum and men. We additionally offer Nutrafol’s probiotic supplements, collagen powder and Growth Activator hair serum specifically formulated for hair health.
3. Oral medications. Oral medications are effective for both women and men experiencing certain types of hair loss and can be prescribed by a dermatologist at REN. Your provider will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a suitable candidate.
4. Over the counter treatments. Topical Minoxidil (Rogaine) is the only over-the-counter medication that has proven to be effective. For minoxidil to be beneficial you typically must use it consistently to maintain results. Be aware of expensive shampoos and treatments that are not backed by science.
