August is Hair Loss Awareness Month

August is Hair Loss Awareness Month

Suffering with excessive shedding, thinning or loss of hair can be a silent struggle for both male and female patients. Hair loss has many causes including (but not limited to) heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications associated with them, a stressful life event and certain styling techniques. Diagnosis is often incredibly patient specific, which is why it is important you seek the guidance of a hair loss expert. Since August is Hair Loss Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight our expert hair loss providers and treatment options.

Dr. Omer Ibrahim’s interest in the condition of alopecia and hair loss began with working alongside Dr. Wilma Fowler Bergfeld at the Cleveland Clinic, who is one of the nation’s top experts on hair loss. As the hair growth guru of Chicago, Dr. Ibrahim makes time for his hair loss patient’s during clinic hours recommending many successful results-driven patient care plans.

One of  the most popular treatments for hair loss at CCSD is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. PRP is blood plasma that contains essential proteins to stimulate natural hair growth. This therapy involves drawing a patient’s own blood, spinning it so that only enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and re-injecting it into the scalp. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months following treatment. Hair growth will continue to improve up to a year thereafter.

CCSD has a multitude of treatment and product options at our office, and we can customized hair loss regimens based on your needs. Check out how other CCSD patients saw fantastic hair growth improvements HERE!
