Hair Loss Treatments for Men and Women

Hair Loss Treatments for Men and Women

Hair loss treatments for men and women require an approach that is unique to their individual condition. Male and female pattern hair loss called alopecia. Alopecia is the medical term used to describe the most common form of hair loss in both men and women.

For Men

The usual areas of the scalp where hair is resistant to hair loss, is the sides and back of the scalp. At your consultation, Dr. Arthur Zacco and you will decide on an individual plan that is right for you. Hair is taken from the resistant areas and transplanted into the susceptible areas of hair loss. Once transplanted, these follicles retain their genetic coding/expression and continue to produce hair for the entire life of the individual. Transplanted follicles produce a natural look and grow for life. Your transplanted hair not only grows for life, it grays naturally with the rest of your hair.

There are other more rare forms of hair loss, such as Alopecia Areata, and Scarring Alopecia. There are many metabolic conditions that can result in hair loss ranging from hypogonadism to nutrient deficiencies. Dr. Arthur Zacco can evaluate you for many metabolic conditions providing an extensive work up and evaluation covered by most insurance companies. Call today for details – 919-615-0577

Other forms of hair loss treatments such as wigs, weaves, gels, and pills are not permanent and can be more costly over a period of years and some have side effects. Since methods other than hair transplantation are not permanent and produce a pre-occupation with hair loss, Dr. Arthur Zacco has opted not to offer them. Dr. Arthur Zacco focuses on Hair Transplantation as the only form of hair restoration.

For Women
