Turn Up the Volume

“It’s easier to hold on to hair than to regrow it, so I get patients into treatment as early as possible,” says dermatologist Nicole Rogers, MD. Minoxidil, the derm world’s favorite OTC hair-loss medication, can now be found in more than just Rogaine. “Major hair product companies are realizing how important minoxidil is to women,” says Rogers of the ingredient, which works by making the hair follicle wider and sparking regrowth within six months of use*. Meanwhile, we can thank the car industry for a short-term fix. L’Oréal Paris Volume Filler Fiber Amplifying Concentrate contains a thickening agent inspired by the technology used to fix cracked windshields. The brand’s patented Filloxane molecule changes from a liquid to a solid, penetrating the hair fiber and immediately plumping it from within.

Self-Service

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) hair-growth treatments—during which a patient’s blood is processed via centrifuge to concentrate the plasma, then shallowly syringed into the scalp—are getting a boost with human placental tissue. In an hour-long session, Alan J. Bauman, MD, injects a custom cocktail of a patient’s own stem-cell-rich plasma combined with placenta from a medically screened donor into target areas, then follows with microneedling. On average, 90 percent of patients with early-stage hair loss will experience a 20 percent increase in volume and coverage, Bauman says. And unlike traditional PRP, which requires patients to return for treatment every 90 days to six months, placenta-enhanced PRP results last up to two years.

Light Show

Small enough to hide under any Eugenia Kim beret, the diode-laced LaserCap delivers a low-level laser light proven to increase the cellular energy produced in mitochondria, enhancing growth. “It’s virtually identical to the treatments we used to give in the office using a $100,000 machine,” Bauman says of the effective (but pricey, at $3,000) chapeau. After 30-minute sessions every other day, “Most people will have a 15 to 30 percent improvement in hair mass in the weaker zones within 90 days*.”
