Hair loss can greatly impact your self-esteem. Many things may contribute to hair loss in men and women, such as family genetics, stress, overall health and some medical treatments. While some of these factors are temporary or can be reversed, many men and women suffer from thinning hair or baldness that is permanent.
According to the American Hair Loss Association and the Washington Post, American hair loss sufferers spend more than 3.5 billion dollars a year trying to treat their hair loss. Unfortunately, 99% of all products being marketed are completely ineffective.
Abnormal hair loss is a medical condition that requires proper medical diagnosis to determine the problem and select the best treatment. Hair regrowth therapy managed by professional medical physicians is available and affordable in Costa Rica, where you can receive the same high level of service and quality that you’d expect from an American clinic for a much better price.
What Hair Regrowth Therapies are available in Costa Rica?
Hair regrowth therapy in Costa Rica includes non-surgical therapies and hair restoration surgery.
Therapy with a DermaPen Micro-needling Device has been shown to stimulate hair follicles to support hair growth and reduce hair loss. As the micro-needles make small punctures into the region of the scalp where hair loss occurs, the body responds by producing growth factors as a natural part of healing.
Minoxidil (loniten) was the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern baldness. A combination of once per week Micro-Needling and daily Minoxidil applications (for usually 12 weeks) has resulted in significantly more hair regrowth than using Minoxidil alone.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth. The treatment uses your own blood, processed in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich parts, which is then injected by a small needle directly to the areas to be treated. The process takes advantage of your body’s innate natural healing power to stimulate your hair follicles’ growth.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT)
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) uses cold lasers that produce no heat, are safe and cannot burn or injure the skin, to trigger enhanced cellular activity in your scalp. LLLT makes aging cells more active, thereby stimulating hair growth.
Hair restoration surgery
The various methods involved in hair restoration or transplant surgery depend on the area that is balding or thinning and what kind of look you are trying to achieve. In all cases, hair follicles are moved from one area of your scalp – usually from the back of the head – and transferred to the area that is lacking. This can be done by strip harvesting, flap surgery or scalp reduction.
