Hair Loss Treatments in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
If you suffer from male pattern baldness, hair loss, or hair thinning, you can find the hair restoration solutions you need at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics. We offer hair loss treatments to men and women living in Cape Fear, Sanford, Lumberton, Cary and the nearby areas of North Carolina.
How is Male Pattern Baldness Treated?
Male pattern baldness is one of the most common hair loss conditions. Luckily, there are a range of effective treatment options to help men restore volume and thickness to their hair. These treatments include hair transplants, PRP therapy, low level light therapy, and supplements.
How is Hair Loss in Women Treated?
Hair loss in women may not always mean baldness, but most often includes thinning or missing patches of hair. Many of the treatments used to treat male pattern baldness are also effective for treating hair loss in women. For women suffering from hair loss, we offer hair transplants, PRP therapy, low level light therapy, and supplements.
What Are Supplements for Hair Loss?
Supplements are a non-surgical method of hair restoration that are typically only available by prescription. The two supplements that we recommend are Minoxidil and Finasteride. Minoxidil (Rogaine®) is effective in women and men. It is prescribed by hair restoration specialists as part of a complete treatment program for hair restoration. Finasteride (Propecia®) is given orally and/or topically. This hair loss medication facilitates the response of scalp hair follicles to androgenic hormones. Like Minoxidil, Finasteride is only available by prescription from a hair restoration specialist like Dr. Edward Dickerson
What is PRP for Hair Loss?
PRP for hair loss uses the growth factors in the blood to stimulate hair follicles and trigger natural, healthy hair growth. PRP technology has been used in sports medicine and cosmetic treatments for years because it is a safe and effective treatment that works using only the patient’s blood. With a few quick injections into the scalp, patients can achieve thicker, fuller hair. To learn more, visit our page on PRP for hair loss.
What is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is an advanced restoration technique that involves extracting healthy, functional hair follicles and transplanting them to an area that lacks full hair growth. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we specialize in FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplants. With this technique, we carefully transplant hair by the follicle. This is an ideal solution because it leaves minimal scarring and requires practically no downtime. To learn more, visit our hair transplant page.
What is Low Level Light Therapy?
Low level light therapy (LLLT) is often recommended in combination with our hair restoration supplements to achieve the best results. LLLT consists of low level lights at a certain nanometer wavelength to stimulate the hair follicles for growth. This invigorates weakened cells, helping hair grow thicker and fuller. This treatment can also provide complete coverage of the affected area, helping patients achieve full hair restoration. Most of our patients notice fuller, thicker hair in as little as six weeks.

At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we try our best to keep our services affordable to our patients.
