Because there are many different causes of hair loss, there are many different questions we get asked. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions and answers.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss has many causes, and therefore many treatments. It’s impossible to properly treat hair loss without understanding its root cause. This is why a consultation before treatment is so important. Hair loss can be caused by genetics, stress, hormonal fluctuations, certain medications, scalp disorders, diet, trichotillomania, and even some types of hairstyles. Local and systemic conditions (anemia, nutritional abnormalities, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, etc.) can also contribute to hair loss.
How does Dr. Tseng treat hair loss?
Dr. Tseng uses only the most advanced and proven hair restoration techniques. These include NeoGraft® and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments with ACell®. In keeping with his dedication to excellence, Dr. Tseng researches each and every procedure extensively. He refuses to offer services or products that he would not choose for himself.
Does Dr. Tseng treat women for hair loss?
Yes. 30% of all women experience significant hair loss sometime during their life because of factors such as female pattern baldness, stress, hormone changes, poor nutrition, trauma, and more. For conditions such as these, Dr. Tseng is happy to provide excellent hair restoration solutions.
Will others know that I’ve had a hair restoration treatment?
Not unless you tell them. Dr. Tseng and his staff pride themselves on delivering results that are natural-looking, blending in seamlessly with their existing hair. You can be confident that Dr. Tseng will achieve the most organic outcome possible.
Do I need to take time off work for a NeoGraft treatment?
Although there is no required downtime or recovery after NeoGraft, most individuals take about three days off work. Your scalp will heal within 24 hours, but for a few days, you will have red marks in the treated area.
Can I transplant hair from someone else onto my head?
No. Only your own hair follicles can be used.
Which hair loss treatment is right for me?
