Medical Therapy for Hair Loss

At True & Dorin Medical Group, we are committed to providing each of our patients with the very best treatments available at our offices in Manhattan, NYC, and throughout the greater NYC metro area. In some cases, medical therapy for hair loss is used in conjunction with surgical treatments such as follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Advanced methods, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bio-enhanced hair transplant, and stem cell therapy offer numerous benefits to the right patients. During a full evaluation, Drs. Robert J. Dorin and Robert H. True will walk you through your options, explain the benefits of combining treatments, and develop a personally tailored plan designed to meet your unique needs and goals. 

Pioneers in Advanced Treatment Options

Recognized as pioneers in the field of hair loss treatment, our doctors have dedicated themselves to finding the right combination of treatment options for each individual.

Our doctors may recommend combining medical therapy for hair loss with a surgical method, such as FUE or FUT, to deliver optimal results.

While we rely heavily on the results that can be achieved using FUE and FUT, we have found that when we combine these methods with a medical therapy option, incredible results can be achieved. In some cases, medical therapy options can provide sufficient results on their own. This allows us to offer our patients more conservative, minimally invasive procedures.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, encourages tissue growth and is used in a variety of medical applications. After the patient's blood is collected, it is treated to isolate platelets, which are then injected into the scalp. The technique is often used in conjunction with other restoration methods to improve healing and stimulate collagen production in both the donor and treatment areas. PRP can also be an effective treatment for thinning hair on its own.

Bio Enhanced Hair Transplant

A bio-enhanced hair transplant uses a plasma-rich solution that harnesses the body's own natural healing abilities. After the hair follicles have been harvested as part of an FUT or FUE procedure, they will be placed in a solution made from the patient's own plasma before they are transferred to the treatment area. This extends the life of the follicles and also makes them more viable upon implantation.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells have the ability to develop into more than 200 different kinds of cells. The versatility of this technique makes it one of the most effective ways to use a patient's own tissue to regrow hair. After collecting fatty tissue via liposuction, we can isolate your stem cells and apply them to your scalp to reverse hair loss. This advanced treatment can be used alone or in combination with our other hair restoration techniques.
