Hair Loss Q & A

What is hair loss?

Hair loss affects both men and women and has many possible causes. If you notice thinning parts on your scalp, a receding hairline, or a developing bald spot, Leva Medical welcomes you in for a hair loss treatment consultation.

Fortunately, modern hair loss treatments can help you regrow your own natural hair in many cases instead of getting a wig, hairpiece, or extensions. The options available at Leva Medical are regenerative and do not involve follicular transplants or any type of surgery.

During your hair loss treatment consultation, your provider explores the possible reasons why you're experiencing hair loss. They let you know if your hair loss will respond well to the treatments at Leva Medical or if you should consider other options.

What causes hair loss?

There are countless possible causes of hair loss with some being particularly more common than others. Hereditary hair loss, also called male-pattern and female-pattern baldness, accounts for the two most common types of hair loss worldwide. Other possible causes of hair loss are:

  • Alopecia areata
  • Cancer treatments
  • Childbirth
  • Certain hair care products
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Certain medications
  • Scalp infections
  • Hair pulling
  • Thyroid disease
  • Extreme physical stress
  • Extreme psychological stress
  • Nutrition imbalances
  • Stress
  • Poor Diet
  • Tight hair pulling styles

Finding the right treatment for your hair loss depends on getting an accurate diagnosis. Fortunately, the options available at Leva Medical are highly effective for many types of hair loss.

How is hair loss treated?

Leva Medical provides regenerative injections to treat hair loss. After making or confirming your diagnosis with a physical exam, scalp biopsy, follicular exam, or possibly blood work, your provider at Leva Medical can confidently recommend treatment. Options include:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP is a substance full of growth factors that comes from a sample of your own blood. It helps boost the health of your follicles so they can start growing hair again. Leva Medical uses the FDA-approved ProGen PRP™ system to extract PRP from your blood.

Combination therapy

Combination therapy for hair loss uses PRP, prescription medications, light laser therapy, and peptide-stimulating growth factors to enhance hair growth.

Your providers check in with you regularly as you go through hair loss treatments to see if your treatments are working or recommend others.
