Hair Loss Evaluation
If you are considering surgical hair restoration or non-surgical treatment for hair loss, we recommend a private hair loss evaluation. Pittsburgh clients will visit The Skin Center Medical Spa in Mt. Lebanon, PA to meet with our hair loss specialist. During your consultation, your degree of hair loss will be examined, along with your medical history and any medications you are taking to evaluate if your hair loss is caused by factors other than male pattern hair loss. Your personal concerns and expectations for hair restoration surgery and hair loss treatment will be discussed as well.
Factors such as your age, hair characteristics, hair loss pattern and progression, and the amount and quality of donor hair will help determine the hair loss treatment that is best for you.
What To Expect During Your Hair Loss Evaluation
At The Skin Center located in Pittsburgh, hair loss is evaluated using a unique micro-camera magnification system. Through this magnification system the natural follicular growth pattern will be examined to determine hair density and the stage of hair loss. If hair restoration surgery is an option, then this microscopic hair loss tool will help to identify the quantity and quality of follicular units available for hair transplantation surgery.
Following the magnification examination, measurements can be taken of the balding or thinning area of the scalp to determine how many follicular units you may need for the most natural-looking result. Then a hairline design and grafting configuration that complements your facial structure and hair characteristics may be discussed.
Before completing your hair loss evaluation, you will be given an opportunity to review "before and after" photographs of patients who've had hair transplantation surgery in Pittsburgh, PA by Dominic Brandy, MD. The associated cost of hair restoration surgery or treatment will be discussed with you in detail and low interest financing options are available if needed.
It is important to keep in mind that genetic hair loss or male pattern baldness continues throughout a lifetime. When Pittsburgh hair loss expert, Dominic Brandy, MD devises a plan for restoring your hair, his goal is to have your hair looking its best for decades to come.
