Hair Loss

Management & Restoration

Hair loss, also called alopecia, can affect anyone for various reasons. Some common factors include stress or anxiety, medical conditions including hormonal changes (such as pregnancy and menopause), hereditary and certain hairstyles, or products.

Hair loss treatments can help control or slow down this process while helping strengthen and nourish existing hair follicles to improve the quality of existing hair. There are several types of hair loss, and each type can be addressed with a specific treatment plan. A combined therapy approach is the most effective way to treat hair loss.

Types of Hair Loss

The types of hair loss range from the genetically influenced Androgenetic Alopecia, commonly known as male or female pattern baldness, to stress-induced Telogen Effluvium, a temporary condition often due to lifestyle habits. Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disorder leading to unpredictable hair fall, and Traction Alopecia, caused by prolonged tension on hair strands from certain hairstyles, are also one of prevalent causes of hair loss. 

Androgenetic Alopecia

The most common type of hair loss which affects men more than women. It is what is commonly referred to as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. Half of all men are affected by age 50, whereas 40% of women are affected by age 70. A combination of treatment options can help manage androgenetic alopecia.
Male pattern baldness starts above the temples and continues around the perimeter and the top of the head, often leaving a ring of hair along the bottom of the scalp. Many men with male pattern hair loss eventually become bald.
In women, the hair slowly thins all over the scalp, but the hairline usually doesn’t recede. Many women experience this type of hair loss as a natural part of aging, although hair loss may begin any time after puberty. Female pattern hair loss can cause hair to thin dramatically, but it rarely leads to baldness.

Telogen Effluvium

Telogen effluvium, a type of hair loss, occurs when large numbers of follicles on the scalp enter the resting phase of the hair growth cycle, called telogen, but the next growth phase doesn’t begin. Women between the ages of 30 to 60 are most affected. It is often secondary to a medical event or condition such as post-pregnancy, illness recovery, or high-stress levels that increase the body’s cortisol level. A stressor event may or may not be present, usually occurring 2–4 months before the onset of hair shedding. 


Alopecia Areata

A hair loss condition that can affect men and women equally. The most common areas of hair loss (seen in patches) are the scalp and beard regions. Round areas of complete hair loss with retained follicular ostia. Exclamation points hairs found at the edges of expanding areas of hair loss are a hallmark sign. Most of those with AA (66%) are younger than 30, and 60% of patients present with their first patch of AA before age 20.

Man IV Infusion

Hair Restoring IV Infusion

A blend of vitamin, minerals and amino acids that will absorb efficiently and effectively to help revitalize your hair and support new growth. This infusion helps nourish your body on a cellular level and restore healthy hair growth and appearance. It will also give your hair a healthy shine and control frizz while boosting your overall collagen production.

Man LED therapy

LED Hair Therapy

Red light promotes hair growth and inhibits hair follicles from entering the catagen phase, which signals the end of active hair growth. LED therapy works by emitting energy-producing packets of red light deep into the scalp skin's layers. The light creates cellular energy, which strengthens both the cells and the surrounding area creating a perfect scenario for hair growth. LED light therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment.

Man derma-rolling


This treatment of causing “micro-injuries” allows for an increased blood flow to the scalp inducing hair growth and thickness. This is because derma rolling triggers our body’s natural capacity of regeneration to rebuild collagen and elastin in the skin. It provides an oxygen supply to the roots for nourishment, prevents hair thinning and delays progression to the catagen phase (shedding phase).

steroid injection

Steroid Injection

Alopecia areata (hair loss caused by autoimmune disease) can be managed with corticosteroids.

Male PRP


PRP which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is a series of superficial injections using a patient’s blood to accelerate tissue and cell repair. The treatment assists with hair loss by injecting growth factors directly into areas of the scalp that need it the most.

medication in hand


A variety of FDA-approved topical and oral treatments for hair loss are available. A GP or dermatologist can determine which is the best option for you. The medication is designed to stimulate growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles themselves or correcting hormonal imbalances.


Hair Loss Treatments at OT&P

  • IV Infusions

    IV Infusions

    Vitamins and minerals can nourish your body’s cells and naturally promote hair growth more efficiently and effectively than oral supplements. Our clinic has created two signature blends that will assist with rebuilding collagen, strengthening the integrity of your hair, creating a lustrous appearance, and preventing future loss by treating depleted nutrients in the hair and skin.

  • PRP Injections

    PRP Injections

    Blood is drawn from the patient and prepared so practitioners can separate the body’s natural growth factors, found in platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and create a natural, concentrated product to treat thinning hair. Once the PRP is prepared, it is injected into the hair follicles of the scalp and signaling cells to regrow.

  • Corticosteroid Injections

    Corticosteroid Injections

    Cortisone is most effective on conditions that stem from inflammation under the scalp, such as alopecia areata. When injected into the root of the hair over several months, cortisone reduces the inhibiting inflammation and allows the dormant hair to grow back. It is the best treatment course for alopecia areata. Steroids are commonly prescribed and can result in hair regrowth.
