Conservative (non-surgical) treatments successfully used are medical treatment tools, PRP therapy (Platelet Reach Plasma therapy) and Mesoterapy.
There are two drugs that can be used – Propecia and Minoxidil approved by FDA (American Food and Drag Administration) for addressing androgenic hair loss.
Propecia, Proscar – is an oral drug which prevents the transformation of testosterone in active form of dehydrotestosterone trough 5 – alfa reductase blockage. As a result levels of Dehydrotestosterone in blood are reduced, while also reducing alteration effect of Dehydrotestosterone on hair follicles.
Minoxidil (Regaine) – Is a topical spray (foam) which comes in different percentile solutions ranging between 2%-15%, while action mechanisms are not yet fully researched.
Systematic use of abovementioned medicines, in a single or combined manner, as a rule gives us the ability to stop hair loss progress, prevents hair miniaturization and considerably improves hair condition.
Plasmolifting represents the injection of platelet reach plasma, prepared from the patient’s own blood in damage sites, which causes acceleration of regenerative processes, improvement of microcirculation and cellular metabolisms processes and switching hair follicles from resting (Telogen) stage to active (Anagen) stage. We successfully use PRP therapy for treatment of hair loss problems of different etiology and also for improvement of hair transplantation results.
Mesotherapy represents the injection of – vitamins, amino acids and other microelements using mini needles in damaged areas through the dermis (mesoderm). As a result maximum concentration of these agents is delivered to the problematic areas. Mesotherapy can be used as a treatment for androgenic alopecia and alopecia areata.
All conservative (non-surgical) treatment methods give us the possibility to stop progress of hair loss and improve overall condition (structure, diameter and shine) of existing hair follicles. Today there are no existing methods which could cause regeneration of the dead hair follicles or re growth of lost hairs in the already bald areas. That is why the only method for restoring lost hair due to Androgenic, Cicatricial or Traction alopecia is a surgical treatment, hair transplantation (hair autotransplantation).
