Hair Loss Treatments
No two people’s hair loss is the same. There are numerous types of alopecia, some are commonly known and some are more rare. With the various types of alopecia, some treatments may be very appropriate for patient, but not for another. Since most over-the-counter products are made with little consideration of the cause of one’s hair loss, unfortunately they are rarely effective and can leave patients very disappointed. Treatments include oral vitamin supplementation, injections, laser stimulation or hair transplantation or some combination.
- + PRP HAIR TREATMENT
- + VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS
Like every part of our bodies, nutrients and build blocks are necessary for proper and healthy development. The hair is no different. The hair requires some of these building blocks more than other cells in the body do. Biotin is perhaps the most popular ingredient in “hair growth” vitamins, but biotin supplementation alone often doesn’t correct hair loss. Other antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and vitamins are helpful as well in combination. Dr. Steele will recommend the best choices that have data and science demonstrating their efficacy.
- + INJECTIONS
For certain types of alopecia where there is inflammation involved, steroid injections are a great treatment option. The injections calm inflammation that is attacking the hair follicles, and therefore once the inflammation is calmed, the hair follicle may function to grow hair.Minoxidil injection is another treatment that may help significantly improve hair growth in the right patient. Since it is injected into the scalp, it may penetrate better than the topical solutions that may be applied. Also, it may be a better choice for those who are unable to tolerate the topical solution due to irritation or interference with styling. Minoxidil works by promoting the growing phase of the hair follicle and increasing blood flow to the follicles.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections is a new and exciting treatment for various types of hair loss which uses concentrated nutrients and growth factors from your own blood to promote hair growth. The injections are natural, and derived from your own body and work very well.
- + LASER STIMULATION
Low Level Light Treatment (LLLT) is another technology than can be used to stimulate hair growth in hair follicles. Dr. Steele can recommend a regimen that may be best suited for you.
- + HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
Hair transplantation (also known as hair restoration) surgery involves simply moving some of your own hair follicles from one area to another. In most cases of hair loss, thinning only occurs in some areas, while other ares remain very dense. This makes it possible to move hair follicles from the highest density areas to those that are thinning or balding. Dr. Steele creates natural looking results with the most advanced techniques in hair restoration.Make an appointment with Dr. Steele today to see if you may be a candidate for surgical, medical or procedural hair restoration.

Eyelash and Eyebrow Restoration Treatments
- + EYEBROW RESTORATION SURGERY
Eyebrow restoration is an extremely gratifying procedure for Dr. Steele and her patients! There are many situations where one may find themselves with sparse eyebrows—from over-plucking, genetics, or medical issues. In any case, Dr. Steele can easily restore your lashes with transplantation from an area where you have plenty of hair (like the scalp) to your brows. While taking only a tiny percentage of your scalp hairs that won’t be missed from your head, Dr. Steele can fully and permanently replenish or augment your brow hair. Make an appointment at Steele Dermatology to see how your can get fuller brows.
- + EYELASH RESTORATION SURGERY
Long, thick beautiful lashes make anyone’s eye look more attractive and ways to increase lash length and thickness have become numerous and popular. From mascara to chemical enhancement to lash extensions and false lashes, all can be safe and effective, but all are temporary and require maintenance. If you desire something more permanent, or have lost lashes and it is not possible to grow them, then you may be a great candidate for eyelash transplantation!Like eyebrow transplantation, eyelash transplantation is a form of hair transplantation, but the recipient area is your upper eyelids/lash line. Since the lashline is a smaller recipient area, fewer hairs need to be transplanted overall. For this reason, it is also a very gratifying procedure because you can make a significant impact in the appearance of the eyelashes.
