Can I Reverse All Hair Loss?
Depending on the reason for the hair loss there is a chance that patients can be permanently alleviated from the issue, although there is no such thing as a hair loss cure for every case. Getting to the bottom of the cause is truly the most important factor when it comes to treating hair loss.
How Do I Determine the Cause of My Hair Loss?
After a thorough examination by our dermatologists specializing in hair loss, there are actually an additional few lab tests that can get to the root of the issue. These can include but are not limited to routine bloodwork and a small scalp biopsy. The causes of hair loss differ for men and women, too; hair loss in women can involve postpartum hair loss due to hormonal changes, for example.

WWhat is PRP for Hair Loss and How Does It Work?
PRP has been an amazing advancement in the medical world across multiple specialties; it is even commonly injected into the joints to reduce pain and inflammation. When injected into the scalp we are helping to heal any disorder or inflammation that can be causing the hair thinning or loss. The process of the treatment consists of our staff routinely drawing your blood and putting it into a centrifuge. This allows the blood to separate the “platelet-rich plasma” or the liquid gold as we call it. We then take the specialized cells and re-inject that back into your scalp. With help from numbing agents and laughing gas if needed this procedure is extremely fast and convenient. Most patients are only here for about 30 minutes. After the injections are completed, we have patients sit under our LED to further heal the scalp.
PRP can be one of the best hair loss treatments because it works as a male and female hair loss treatment and helps address the underlying cause of poor hair growth.
How Fast Will I See Hair Regrowth and Results?
Although patients will see improvement after one treatment, we generally recommend PRP to be done in a series for best results. Each patients treatment plan will be determined during your initial consultation.
If your hair growth comes from a more hormonal trigger it is common that by leveling out your hormones with certain medications, you can regain new growth. Sometimes it can also be helpful to inject certain medications directly into the scalp to reduce inflammation. This will be determined in consultation.
Just like skincare on your face and body- it is important to be topically aware of what ingredients that we apply to the scalp. Scalp health is a key player in creating a healthy environment for new hair to grow. Best products and medications will be discussed during your appointment.
Real Patient Reviews
"I came in to Dr. Gross with half of my hair gone. Went to so many dermatologist and was told my hair will never grow back. I took the word of the doctors. Was not going to give up there so I went online a research dermatologist in NY and found Dr. Gross. He did what other doctors refuse to do, he did biopsy and told me my hair will grow back. Went back and started the treatments. 5 months later a lot of my hair grew back. Im glad I never gave up hope. If you are struggling with alopecia Dr. Gross is the person to see."
