Nizoral Shampooing and Hair Loss Prevention

Nizoral Anti-Fungal Shampoo touted to effect androgenic alopeciaMedical Treatment for Increase Hair Loss from Androgenic Alopecia

Online sources assert that topical Spironolactone (Aldactone) can be used to reduce hair loss; as well as, Nizoral shampoo. There is not strong medical evidence supporting Spironolactone effect on reducing hair loss.  Orignally developed for hypertension some level of anti-androgenic effects have been noted. Systematic use has shown effective in female hair loss depending on the type. Use in men manifested side effects of sexual dysfunction and is not recommended for treatment of androgenic alopecia in men.

Nizoral (ketoconazole 5%) is an anti dandruff medication with antifungal properties. There are some indicators that it can affect hair loss in male patterned baldness. Presently it does not have FDA approval nor does Sprionolactone.

The only FDA approved medications for hair loss treatment are Minoxidil and finasteride. Nizoral is not one of the FDA approved medications for hair loss treatment. A daily regimen of finasteride with Minoxidil is effective for many men. Minoxidil is recommended to be used twice a day, some find positive results with just a once a day application. Minoxidil does not double up the effect of finasteride but can add to it as an adjunct treatment.

Happy New Year from US Hair Restoration

I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Last year was a year of great achievements for our hair restoration offices in Orange County and Los Angeles area in Southern California. We are pleased to announce that we continued our research in hair loss treatment and hair restoration and were active at the medical meetings at an international level.  I am proud that our articles on hair restoration were published on Hair Transplant Forum, the most prestigious journal of hair restoration surgery.

Our last two articles, Psychology of Hair Transplants and How to assess scalp laxity, were published on hair transplant forum international, both on the cover of the magazine within the last year.  I have to be thankful for Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pack who assisted me with our studies and our invention: Laxometer.

My presentation at annual meeting of International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) on Psycho-social impacts of hair restoration surgery on men was well received.  Our new intention, Laxometer is being developed and I hope that it will be mass produced to be used in hair restoration field.  Laxometer is a device that can help hair transplant surgeons to increase their precision in harvesting hair and making hair transplant a safer procedure for patients.

Adjacent to our accomplishments in hair restoration research and development, we have expanded our Medical Spa to provide a lot more cosmetic procedures to our patients under one roof. Our Encino, Beverly Hills and Orange County hair transplant offices facilitated the access of our patients to our quality services especially for the residents or Southern California.  We also provided a great travel package for the patients who traveled from other states or other Countries to take advantage of our quality services.  I need to thank our office staff and medical assistants for coordinating this process to make our procedures as smooth and pleasant as possible.

We all know that last year has been a challenging year for America and other countries financially.  We at US Hair Restoration achieved reducing the rates of our procedures while maintaining a very high standard.  We offered a variety of low rates and 0% interest finances for qualified patients to make our hair transplant procedures more affordable.

I am thrilled that I found many great friends during last year, individuals who I admire for their willingness to become a better person inside and out.  I am grateful for my colleagues for not keeping it a secret and introduced their patients and friends to us.  I also have to thank our previous patients who did not stop bragging about their new look after their hair restoration procedure with us.

Have a great New Year,
