I had the pleasure of consulting with a 20-year-old college student. When he came to the appointment he had his hood up, a cap on, and he was looking down. This young man plays college football with a full ride scholarship, yet he couldnt look me in the eyes because he wasuncomfortablewith the way his hair looked. His mother did most of the talking in hopes to get her son out of his shell. As we continued talking, we discovered his concerns of ending up bald like his father and grandfather.
What can we do at Christoffels Company?
We started by completing a hair and scalp analysis where we found buildup on the scalp and a lot of hair miniaturization in the temple and crown areas. We then reviewed all the options including treatment,non-surgicalandtransplant. We knew it was important to him to try and retain as much of his hair as possible.
Since the hair loss pattern is not clearly defined at his young age, a transplant was not ideal in this situation. Our recommendation for him was to start using ourscalp therapyand shampoo to clean the scalp. He will use 5% minoxidil, a DHT blocker, and completelow-level laser light therapywith the iGrow laser, three times a week. We will evaluate his progress in three months during his follow up.
P.S. He left with his head up and a smile on his face.
