According to the American Hair Loss Association, a staggering number of men and women suffer from hair loss and hair thinning in their lifetime. By the age of thirty-five, two-thirds of American men will have experienced some form of hair loss. Together, Americans are believed to spend 3.5 billion dollars a year in an attempt to treat their condition, often without success.
While hair loss is certainly not new, cutting-edge modern treatments that are available to address patient suffering are. Oral medication aside (of which there are many compelling options depending on the cause and source of thinning and loss), hair grafts and transplants provide the most long-term opportunity for fuller growth while platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment has seen a surge in popularity. No matter the treatment, however, there is always a need for high-performance patient homecare that works to maintain regular hair growth while working to complement in-office procedures.
Compounding for Hair Loss:
Pharmaceutical compounding for hair loss has the capability of addressing the complex biology of the hair follicle and growth cycle including:
- Stem cell stimulation
- Opening ions within cells
- Extending the anagen phase
- Addressing the build-up of dihydrotestosterone
- Supporting the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor
- Limiting chronic inflammation
The key point of difference is that high-quality and pure custom blends can be created for a practice or individual patient that best meets unique hair loss needs. This can range from an accessible OTC formula to a prescription-strength topical.
