Hair Loss Medications and Supplements
At Beverly Hills Center, we value the importance of treating hair loss according to the patient’s unique needs and goals. We understand that thinning hair and baldness can be detrimental to one’s quality of life and self-esteem. However, we also realize that not everyone is a candidate for hair transplantation and some may simply be searching for a convenient maintenance regime for their new hair restoration procedure. In such cases, hair loss medications and supplements can be an excellent choice.
Dr. Ben Talei is an esteemed double board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in treating hair loss in men and women. When it comes to medications and supplements for thinning hair, he pursues the most proven products in the industry. We proudly offer the following options that can be used alone or in conjunction with other hair loss treatments such as hair transplantation or PRP injections:
The first FDA-approved drug for male pattern baldness. While it was once a drug to treat prostate issues, Merck released finasteride for the treatment of male pattern baldness and androgenetic alopecia in 1997. Finasteride, also called Proscar and Propecia, reduces the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT, a hormone that is known for shrinking hair follicles and contributing to hair loss in men.
This topical solution, otherwise known as Rogaine, has been proven to treat hereditary hair loss in both men and women. Minoxide stimulates hair follicles and revives the hair growth cycle to encourage a thicker and healthier head of hair.
Dr. Ben Talei has his own hair loss supplement using his knowledge, experience and training in this field. BHHG Elixir is a special proprietary blend of nutrients and other ingredients that supports hair growth. It is easily customized to each patient. BHHG Elixir is recognized for its high success rate, especially when used alongside other treatments. This topical foam product is exclusively available at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
Viviscal Professional is a powerful formula of vitamins and minerals that are known for assisting healthy hair growth. This product is backed by over 25 years of research and clinical trials and includes natural components such as biotin, Vitamin C, apple extract and the exclusive AminoMar marine complex. Viviscal Professional is an excellent drug-free supplement that boosts existing hair growth from the inside out.
