“Employing a multi-therapy approach to treating hair loss can offer long lasting, high-quality results,” state New England hair restoration surgeons Robert Leonard, DO and Matthew Lopresti, DO of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates.
Genetic progressive alopecia — commonly known as hair loss — often requires a systematic strategy in order to curtail symptoms that increase in severity with time.
Hair loss often causes feelings of self-consciousness in the afflicted.
Utilizing the latest in hair transplant technology combined with established non-surgical medical treatments, Drs. Leonard and Lopresti say they can effectively fight hair loss, often with permanent cosmetic results.
Highlighting the various techniques at the practice’s disposal, a recent blog titled, “Preventing Hair Loss: How to Slow or Stop Progressive Alopecia,” details the process of customized comprehensive care that every patient receives at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates. Treatments available include:
ARTAS® Robotic System
Low level laser therapy
Keranique — specially formulated for women
Dr. Leonard clarifies the reason for the multipurpose tactic, saying, “…Each one of these treatments works on a percentage of follicles, so two are better than one and three are better than two.” He and Dr. Lopresti can determine which combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures will be most effective in managing each client’s case, taking into consideration the patient’s goals.
While the majority of people inherit a predisposition for the condition, progressive alopecia can occasionally stem from other sources as well. The qualified team at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates carefully evaluates every patient before initiating treatment. Drs. Leonard and Lopresti offer a progressive, multifaceted program to individuals seeking to treat and/or prevent hair loss.
