Thinning hair affects your appearance and can impact your self-esteem and confidence. Men and women can experience hair loss due to hormonal changes, genetics, aging and other factors. The good news is that there are more treatment options than ever for male or female pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss. Dr. Daniel Benhuri offers the latest options in hair loss treatment for men or women, including oral Minoxidil, at his practice in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA, area.
Many factors contribute to hair loss. Sensitivity to higher levels of DHT from testosterone breakdown is one contributor, but many other elements can affect hair growth. Nutrient levels, circulation, stress, genetics and many other components can affect hair follicle health, resulting in slower hair growth or hair loss. While men have a higher instance of hair loss, women also suffer from thinning hair and balding conditions.
Non-surgical hair loss treatments for men and women range from topical Minoxidil to nutritional and prescription oral supplements. The right treatment can stimulate new hair growth and improve the health of the hair follicles, but the treatment that is right for you depends on what is causing your hair loss. Dr. Benhuri can evaluate your health and hair loss condition to determine the best treatment for your situation.
Oral Minoxidil for Hair Loss Treatment
Since the 1980s, topical Minoxidil (Rogaine®) has been effectively used for regrowing hair. The topical version is FDA-approved for hair loss treatment in both men and women, with a lower dose recommended for women. Now there is evidence that low-dose oral Minoxidil can help improve circulation to the scalp, which increases blood flow and nutrients to the hair follicles, stimulating new hair growth.
Dr. Daniel Benhuri offers oral Minoxidil for hair loss treatment at his practice in Beverly Hills. He can examine your health and medical history to determine whether oral Minoxidil or another hair loss treatment could be safe and beneficial for your hair regrowth.
