Can Magnetic Therapy Stop Hair Loss?

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Every now and then there is a new and exotic advertisement going around claiming it can help lessen or stop hair loss. When these advertisements are published in sources that seem reputable, the average consumer may start to believe them. At US Hair Restoration, many of our patients send in questions regarding how real these methods and devices are, and if they should give it a try. In reality however, there are only a few real-world techniques that can actually help hair loss:

  • Hair transplantation – the only permanent solution for hair loss. Hair is moved from the permanent zone to the balding area.Hair loss solutions
  • Hair loss medications – Includes medications such as Finasteride and Minoxidil, which can slow down the hair loss process.
  • Ketoconazole and Bimatoprost solutions – Two other solutions that appear to stimulate hair growth as one of their side effects.
  • Herbel remedies – A few herbal remedies such as saw Palmetto that include DHT blocking properties.

Hair restoration has become a huge market, with over 60% of white males over the age of 50 having experienced some hair loss that requires treatment.  By looking at these numbers, it is no wonder why so many of these companies are trying to capitalize on it.  As a result, many devices are released, such as LED light hats, laser combs, magnetic devices, heating caps, and so on.  Most of them claim that they can benefit the consumer and help hair loss, but these companies are only looking to make a quick dollar.  Since they seem harmless and are relatively cheap, consumers are not hesitant to spend money and buy them if it will positively impact their appearance.

Since there are no regulations to put a stop to these types of advertisements, they will always be available on the market.  The best advice is to seek a skilled hair transplant surgeon and disregard the other gimmicks.

 Updates on Hair Transplant Repair

One of the misgivings people have about hair restoration through hair transplantation is based on results patients received years ago. The old hair transplant surgeries utilized plugs, mini-grafts or micrografts which left undesirable artificial looking results.

Our medical specialty has come a long way in the twenty-first century.  US Hair Restoration is a modern hair transplant medical practice providing patients with natural, proven and permanent results. A hair transplant results that makes them feels better about their selves and brings about big smiles.

Today, we are able to revise the abnormal appearance to a perfectly natural and refined hairline which is undetectable from a natural head of hair.  Our goal is to create the most natural appearance for your hair and we succeed.

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Hair transplants enhance self image.

US Hair Restoration provides innovative advances for hair loss.

As a hair transplant surgeon women have related to me that they find men with thinning hair and baldness less attractive. Some admitted that they have actually rejected men because they were Baldness still seems to equated with lack of virility making bald men seem less masculine and therefore less attractive. The psychology of hair loss is a genuine medical problem that will effect most men throughout the world at some point in their life to a greater or lesser degree. It is certainly a medical issue worthy of attention and why hair restoration is growing.

The advances in medical technology over the past decades makes available procedures like follicular unit transplants (FUT), follicular unit extraction (FUE) and SMP hair restoration provide great opportunities for men and women to address hair loss. Hair transplants have improved greatly over the past decades. These surgical procedures now provide natural and proven results. Whether or not the hair is native or your own hair transplanted peopled do not have to live with baldness if they don’t want to; people who have who resolve their hair loss report being happier more confident.

Hair transplant are an elective surgery that improve the quality of live for many people. Los Angeles hair transplant surgeons are among the best in the world seeking a professional consult can certainly be worthwhile.

Hair Loss Compared to Hair Shedding

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Many patients that come in to my office have a common complaint; hair shedding (some even bring in a ball of hair they have collected from their brush and bathroom floor) and in most cases they are women with long hair. For the most part hair shedding alone is not a sign of hair loss. Shedding is losing thick hair that has completed its growth phase and started its resting phase.

  • Examples of Normal Hair Shedding

All humans experience a level of hair shedding. It can be up to 100 to 200 hairs per day. Hair shedding is sometimes more exaggerated in people who have had a large surgery, trauma, experienced physiological or emotionally stressful events and women who have recently delivered a child. This is called Telogen Effluvium (excessive temporary loss of telogen hair). In most cases hair shedding is typically temporary and the affected hair will grow back within a few months. There is no cause for concern, unless you have a more visible scalp or thinning of the scalp hair. In which case, you should come in to see a certified hair restoration surgeon.

  • The 3 Stages of Human Hair Growth
  1. Anagen ( Growing stage)
  2. Catagen (Transitional stage)
  3. Telogen ( Resting stage)


  • Active Hair Loss Determined by Miniaturization Study

Almost every patient that visits US Hair Restoration will have a miniaturization study performed on them, to evaluate their degree of the fineness of their scalp hair which are signs of active hair loss, or in other words scalp hair miniaturization. People with active hair loss show 20-30% more thinning hair than the average person who experiences normal hair shedding. If you feel that you are experiencing active hair loss, we recommend you come into one of our five offices in California( San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County, Beverly Hills and Encino), for a free consultation.

Stress and Alopecia Areata

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

AAAlopecia Areata (AA) is an autoimmune hair loss condition. It presents itself in the form of patchy hair loss on the scalp or other areas where hair exists. Some have questioned if AA can also be triggered by emotional stress. It has been discussed in some medical journals but the exact mechanism has never been explored. There has been a study conducted and published on the relationship between stress and the pathogenesis of alopecia areata. This was done by subjecting AA-affected and normal lab mice to ether anesthesia (stress) through restraining the animal.

The mice with alopecia areata had a marked increase in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal tone and activity centrally and peripherally in the skin and lymph nodes. Plasma corticosterone, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and estradiol levels were determined in this study as indicator or stress level, whereas gene expression in brains, lymphoid organs, and skin was measured by quantitative RT-PCR for corticotropin-releasing hormone, arginine vasopressin, proopiomelanocortin, glucocorticoid receptor, mineralocorticoid receptor, corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor types 1 and 2, interleukin-12, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and estrogen receptors type-1 and type-2.

Compared to normal mice, there was an altered interaction seen between the adrenal and gonadal axis proving that the stress level in those animals was in fact higher. Stress also caused changes in the activity of the hypothalamus pituitary axis in the mice with AA.

In addition, animals with AA had significantly blunted corticosteroid and ACTH responses to acute ether stress (physiological stressor) and a deficit in habituation to repeated restraint stress (psychological stressor). These findings further suggest that altered brain responses caused by stress may be associated with the occurrence of alopecia areata, proving the hypothesis that stress plays an important factor.
Treatment of AA is done through observation of the patient and, in some cases, steroid injections can also prove useful. These treatment options have shown some improvement in those who have extensive types of AA like Alopecia Totalis. We do not recommend any patient to get hair transplant surgery if they have active AA since the chance of losing the newly transplant hair is very likely.

Although AA is not genreally treated with hair restoration, we at our offices of US Hair Restoration in LA, BH and Orange County visit and treat patients of AA in a regular basis.
