Who Is A Good Candidate for A Scalp Assessment?

Specializing in hair loss, Dr. Gainers can review your scalp and perform a blood panel to gain a full understanding of your condition. This will help her design a treatment plan that works best for you. When assessing your scalp with the scope, Dr. Gainers will look for scalp disease or miniaturization of hair follicles. Miniaturization of hair follicles can indicate future hair loss issues and may require another treatment type to address this issue. During this part of your appointment, you and Dr. Gainers will look at up-close images of your scalp and discuss what she notices. If she sees inflammation or disease, she may prescribe a treatment option for this. Through a holistic analysis of your scalp, hair fibers, and blood work, Dr. Gainers will ensure you feel knowledgeable about your condition and treatment options.

Treatment Options

Depending on your blood work and scalp analysis, Dr. Gainers will develop the best treatment plan for your condition and preferences. Offering a variety of options, she will try more conservative methods at first, such as PRP therapy, hair loss medications, or laser therapy. In some cases, patients may benefit from more invasive options, like hair transplant surgery. Dr. Gainers will work closely with you to discuss treatment options and ensure you feel comfortable and knowledgeable.
