Frequently Asked Questions
Using a cold laser, our expert technicians will concentrate compressed light onto the area in need of stimulation with our Ultimate Laser. This light works to:
- Significantly increase blood supply to the treated area, even after only one treatment
- Stimulate follicles & encourage healthier, stronger & more lustrous hair production
- Put a stop to hair loss
As we age, our hair follicles grow smaller so that they begin to produce smaller hairs that are more difficult to see. That’s why, prior to going completely bald, men will often have light, fine hair that’s hard to see on the scalp. Hair follicles continue to grow smaller and then cease to function at all when testosterone is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with the aid of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. In time, DHT shrinks hair follicles, restricts their blood flow and causes them to atrophy. Needless to say, because men produce more testosterone than women, they typically experience more hair loss with age.
But, it can be helpful to prepare for hair loss beforehand as much as is possible. Prior to chemotherapy, take numerous photos of your child’s hair the way he or she usually wears it — this will help your hair loss expert select and style the right hair replacement option for your child, and restore his or her comfort and confidence. Another important task is to take several snippets of hair so that the color and texture can be matched later on.
Should your child decide that he or she would like to try a hair replacement, HPIHair has many beautiful, natural-looking—and kid-proof!—options for your child. We can custom-style and fit a replacement for optimal comfort and natural-looking results. We work to provide a replacement that is as close to your child’s hair color, length, thickness, and style as possible — and the good news is, your insurance provider may cover the cost of the replacement!
If you’re balding, to say you’re not alone with this problem is no overstatement. A reported 70 percent of men will be affected by hair loss during their lifetime. Many times balding is a natural part of the aging process, but certainly not always. Since the problem of baldness goes so far back (ahem), it can be difficult to understand why there’s not yet a cure for it. Fortunately, there are numerous treatments that are proven effective for thinning hair, and here at HPIHair, we can personalize a plan for you.
