Hair Loss

Hair loss for men and women is anything but simple.

It may be related to genetics, allergies, diet, various other medical conditions, or simply aging.

So our experienced dermatologists start the diagnosis process by asking lots of questions and examining your scalp, your hair and its roots.

Hair Loss Solutions

Once Midwest Dermatology physicians have determined the cause of your thinning, they put together a recommended plan to help you achieve your best outcome including:

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – not a drug but your body’s own blood, filled with growth factors, the latest advance in medicine used to treat a range of health issues. Simply put, PRP microinjections promote hair growth by prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle. Patients are flocking for PRP because it is non-surgical, has no down time and best of all looks completely natural.
  • Prescription drugs including Finasteride for men. Taken in pill form, Finasteride slows hair loss and, for many men, stimulates growth of new hair.
  • Corticosteroids, often used to treat alopecia areata, an auto-immune disease that attacks hair follicles and causes patchy to total hair loss. Physicians use corticosteroids to help decrease inflammation and may choose to treat with pills, ointments or foams that are applied to the skin’s surface or by tiny injections directly into the scalp. While results vary, hair may gradually regrow once the inflammation is controlled.
  • Topical medications such as Rogaine, the clinically effective, safe to use topical medication that is scientifically proven to increase your hair count. Affordable and easily applied by massaging into your scalp, Rogaine is a popular over the counter treatment.

Thicker, Healthier Hair

Lusher Lashes

When eyelashes are short, thin and generally lackluster, the answer may be prescription Latisse®, the first and only FDA-approved solution for transforming your eyelashes and making them darker, thicker and longer.

Latisse® is the safest and most effective way to treat hypotrichosis, which is the medical name for inadequate eyelashes. Physicians and researchers do not know for sure exactly how Latisse® works, but many believe it lengthens the growth stage of your hair cycle.

Easy to use Latisse® liquid is applied at the base of the upper lid nightly. It’s clear, dries quickly and, most importantly won’t hurt the gentle skin around your eyes. The results are nothing short of phenomenal – starting in four weeks when lashes to become longer with maximum volume in a mere 16 weeks.
