Hair loss treatment options
There are two main types of hair loss treatment options—surgical and non-surgical. Non-surgical hair loss treatments include options like Revitalizer®, TriGen+ or Propecia®. Surgical hair restoration can be performed by a Bosley physician as either a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) hair restoration.
For those suffering from hereditary hair loss, there is unfortunately no hair loss cure. In such cases, you can try medications like Propecia or Rogaine that may help to slow down the progression of hair thinning and baldness or use Revitalizer™ a medical device approved to help treat genetic hair loss and promote thicker hair growth. For early stages of hair thinning, these hair loss solutions can help regrow some hair, but they will not fully restore the hair and hairline that have been lost.
The only proven, permanent solution to genetic hair loss is hair transplantation. It works by surgically restoring hair from the donor area to the recipient (thinning) area.
While surgical hair transplantation is the only permanent and the most significant receding hairline treatment, these other hair loss solutions can help in your fight against hair loss.
The Bosley Revitalizer is a medical device approved to help treat genetic hair loss and promote thicker hair growth. A specially designed laser matrix contains 164 or 272 diodes for maximum treatment coverage. It delivers clinically proven Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) through auto-programmed treatments to stimulate dormant follicles and promote hair growth while helping to reduce the rate of thinning.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP®)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP®) is an innovative solution that replicates the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Specially trained Bosley technicians apply a proprietary formula of pigment to the scalp with micro-fine needles to create thousands of tiny impressions, giving the illusion of hair. This meticulous process has similarities with the artistic technique of stippling. Scalp micropigmentation costs are affordable, whether you’re looking to enhance your existing hair restoration, or find an alternative non-surgical treatment suitable for all types of hair loss.

Propecia® is an FDA approved tablet taken once a day, available by prescription only. Propecia works to inhibit the formation of the DHT hormone that weakens hair and halts its growth.
