Hair loss is a big deal. We can help.
Hair Loss Treatment
Losing hair can affect your confidence.
Luckily, there are therapies to help. It’s important to catch and treat hair loss early, so you can preserve your hair and hair follicles.
Defy Medical providers are experienced in evaluating the root cause of hair loss and developing effective treatment plans to suit the patient’s needs and lifestyle.Get Started
Causes of Hair Loss
Androgenic alopecia is an inherited sensitivity to DHT that causes hair follicles to shrink, leading to thinner hair and bald patches. Androgenic alopecia is also called male- and female-patterned baldness.
Poor diet, chronic stress, illicit drug use, and other habits can cause hair loss and hair thinning.
Medications that affect hormone levels can trigger hair loss. So can medications for high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cholesterol.
A variety of health concerns can affect hair loss and hair growth, including thyroid disease and anemia.
Hair Loss Patterns
Hair loss affects about half of men and women by the time they turn 50.
Men typically experience balding that starts at the forehead, and/or at the crown of the head.
Women typically experience hair thinning all over the head, as well as at the center part of the hair.Get Started
Hormone Testing for Hair Loss
Measuring hormone levels can identify imbalances that impact hair loss. Defy Medical uses blood testing to create a targeted treatment plan, so you see the best possible results. We also recommend general testing for conditions like heart disease and metabolic disorders, which can affect your hair.
Hair Loss Treatments
Defy Medical offers many treatment options for hair loss and hair thinning. We’ll take you step-by-step through each option and help you choose the right treatment for you.
Access a broad range of affordable hair loss prescriptions (as appropriate). Hair loss prescriptions can control DHT levels and increase blood flow to hair follicles.
Platelet rich plasma is full of healing growth factors. When injected into the scalp, PRP has shown success in stimulating hair growth and follicle regeneration. Many patients see a noticeable difference in hair thickness after PRP injections.
PRP injections for hair loss work best with thinning hair. To preserve hair and hair follicles, it’s important to treat hair loss as soon as possible.
This therapy is performed in-office at our Tampa clinic.
