Why It’s Important to Treat Thinning Hair Early

For women and men alike, thinning hair seems to come out of nowhere.

Women may start to notice less hair in their ponytail or that their hair just doesn’t feel as thick anymore. This is because the growth stage has shortened, and some pieces of your hair simply do not grow as long as they used to. You may wonder whether avoiding pulling your hair back will help. Is it just breakage? You ask whether blow drying and styling your hair could be the culprit. But deep down, you know your hair is growing less and getting thinner.

Men watch as their hairline begins to recede. It happens slightly at first, and you can almost convince yourself it’s your imagination. But finally, you have to be honest with yourself and the worry that there is no way to reverse the trend creeps in.

The good news is that there is plenty that can be done, especially during the early stages of hair loss. We often get asked – when is the best time to start treating for hair loss? How do you know whether what seems like extra hair on your comb is leading to overall thinning that will eventually be noticeable on your scalp?

Our answer is that we consider hair loss or thinning hair in much the same way we do other symptoms of aging. The earlier you recognize the issue and start treating, the better your results. You wouldn’t wait until you had deep lines etched into your face to start using anti-aging skincare products. In fact, you probably started applying them at the first sign or a line or maybe even before.

It’s the same with hair loss. If it seems like there is more hair on your brush or comb, there is. And that is the perfect time to employ products and treatments for hair restoration. Bringing back hair where it no longer grows is difficult and sometimes not possible. But stimulating weakening hair follicles can slow the progress of hair loss and cause regrowth where it’s needed most.

We’re not talking about any kind of surgery or hair transplant – the treatments we offer to bring significant improvement to hair thickness and density are non-invasive.

For the most effective hair restoration treatment without surgery, we pair injections of our proprietary serum with an at-home daily treatment solution that will give you fuller, thicker hair, visible in as little as four months with benefits that improve for up to two years. We call this treatment The Activator, because it activates your hair follicles thanks to the injection of serum into the scalp. (Don’t worry, we start with a numbing cream!) Our homecare solution is Re:Activate, and you probably guessed that it was named for its ability to reactivate hair growth.

With three in-office treatments of The Activator, followed by the at-home regimen of prescription strength products, hair vitamins and the use of a laser hair cap, you will soon see less hair on your brush or comb and more on your head.

For early hair loss, you can also achieve noticeable results simply by using the at-home hair restoration products. Our proprietary Re:Activate solution is applied topically every day, and we provide Nutrafol vitamins for men and women. These products will enable you to keep your hair follicles healthy and strong, pushing off age-related hair loss and lessening visible shedding after just two months.

Whatever your gender, if you’re worried about thinning hair or hair loss, it’s not too early to start treating your scalp well. You know what they say about an ounce of prevention.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
