Drs. Jeffrey Epstein and Anthony Bared, Board Certified facial plastic surgeons specializing in the treatment of hair loss at the Foundation for Hair Restoration are committed to achieving for patients not only the most aesthetic outcomes from hair restoration procedures, but also the application of proven and cutting edge therapies that may help with slowing down or even stopping the hair loss process. For while hair transplants are the only “permanent” solution to hair loss, they are not a “cure” in that in cases of male and female pattern hair loss, the hair loss can potentially continue for the rest of an individual’s lifetime. In addition, there are individuals who are better treated with these non-surgical solutions, and/or are not prepared at this time for a procedure. This may be due to being at a younger age, or being at an earlier hair loss pattern, where more conservative intervention may be indicated.
The following are the options we provide for our patients. These can work in conjunction with a transplant, or as stand-alone therapies. A consultation with the doctor, either in person or by email/phone, can provide answers to any questions our patients may have.
