My Los Angeles Hair Restoration Visit
August 11th, 2011
I recently had a hair restoration appointment in Los Angeles. A few months ago I went to a hair restoration clinic in Las Vegas, but I was still left with confusion about exactly what was causing my hair loss. This place in LA mainly does hair transplants, but they also look at your hair under a video camera microscope to determine why your hair is thinning. Plus they use a tool called Haircheck, which I will write about in a separate post soon. This initial appointment was free. Before the appo...
Hair Restoration For Women – My Clinic Visit
March 8th, 2011
I went to a Las Vegas hair restoration clinic today - one that specializes in hair restoration for women and men. Hair restoration is another name for hair transplants - a surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from one part of your head (normally the back) to where you most need it - the top and front. Personally I'm not looking to get hair transplants any time soon (if ever) but the consultation was free, and I was hoping to finally get a definitive answer about whether my hair loss is...
Back To The Hair Loss Doctor
November 23rd, 2010
I just went back to the hair loss doctor for another follow up. I've been taking Spironolactone for a month now, and so far so good. I haven't seen any crazy shedding from it, which is what I was worried about. But I am on a super low dose. I took 12.5mg of it each day for 3 weeks and then went up to 25mg a day. The first few days I started the medication I felt woozy and had a headache, but I switched to taking the pill at night and then I was fine.
My goal at this doct...
Spironolactone – Here We Go!
November 4th, 2010
I had my second appointment with my latest Dermatologist recently. Last month I begged for a prescription for Spironolactone to treat my hair loss and was denied, and I had very little faith this new doctor would ever prescribe it.
• Test results
My latest test results came back and I don't have elevated DHEAS-levels. I'm not sure what the doctor was testing that for, but I assume she was ruling out PCOS?
• Propylene Glycol
Since the last appointment, I started taking more Biotin ...
Another Dermatologist Visit For Hair Loss
September 16th, 2010
Another day, another dollar(s) spent at the Dermatologist to treat my ongoing hair loss. About a month ago I had this Dermatologist visit for hair loss. That "hair loss expert" refused to do anything other than tell me I had Androgenetic Alopecia, and get over myself for being unhappy about it. I really wanted to get started on Spironolactone to see if that would help, and I made yet another Dermatologist appointment with a doctor that has a "special interest in female hair loss." I was really ...
