Hair Loss

Hair loss, at any stage in life, can leave men feeling frustrated and embarrassed, particularly as they try to maintain a youthful appearance. The vast majority of male hair loss is the result of androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness.

Most men will experience some level of hair thinning by middle age, while a quarter will begin seeing signs of hair loss before age 21. While some men remain unbothered by hair loss, others suffer extreme emotional distress and loss of self-esteem as a result of losing hair. As many fad treatments have little to no effect on hair loss, it’s essential to consult with an experienced physician.

The first step in treating hair loss requires evaluation by a dermatologist to determine the cause of hair loss and the appropriate treatment. At Advanced Dermatology and Laser Center of Seattle, Dr. Steven Greene is a board-certified dermatologist with decades of experience helping restore men’s hair, confidence, and self-esteem.

Dr. Greene serves Seattle and surrounding areas of Washington. Call (206) 402-4797 today to schedule a consultation.

Hair Restoration With iRestore

Dr. Greene appreciates that you have a busy schedule and realizes that you need a variety of hair-restoration options. That’s why he’s proud to offer the iRestore Hair Growth System.

iRestore is a take-home hair restoration treatment that allows you to regrow your hair at your own convenience. iRestore uses a network of 51 lasers and LEDs to target every area of your hair and scalp.

The iRestore device is non-obtrusive and completely hands-free. You can use it while going through many parts of your regular routine, such as reading, watching TV, eating dinner, working from home, and more. You need only use it for 25 minutes 3-4 days a week to notice results.

In the first two months of use, your thin, old hairs will shed and fall out. Then, your hair loss will stop completely. After about five to six months, you’ll start growing in newer, thicker, fuller hair at an accelerated rate.

Hair Restoration With Platelet-Rich Plasma

Dr. Greene is also proud to offer in-office hair restoration treatments with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. This involves withdrawing a small amount of your blood to separate its two components, red blood cells and plasma. Plasma is rich in growth factors.

Once your blood has been drawn, it will be placed through a centrifuge to isolate the plasma. Then, the plasma will be injected into your scalp. The injections will stimulate growth in the nearby hair follicles.

Dr. Greene uses an advanced numbing technique to ensure the PRP hair restoration process is as comfortable as possible. Because PRP doesn’t involve any painful grafting or incisions, you don’t have to be put under general anesthesia.
