Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy involves using your body's own platelets to stimulate hair follicle growth. It's a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure.
Typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results. You own growth factors with plasma platelets can stop hair loss and rekindle growth.
Minoxidil (Rogaine topical ) or Oral
A topical solution that can slow hair loss and stimulate regrowth. Over-the-counter 5% formulations are available. We will discuss the oral minoxidil.
Dutasteride and Finasteride (Propecia)
Oral medications that inhibit the hormone responsible for hair loss (DHT). Prescription-only, and long-term use may be required.
Hair Growth Shampoos and Topical Serums
Dr Minuk will make recommendations for hair care and products containing ingredients which are science based to reduce hair loss and promote growth.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Surgical procedure where hair follicles are transplanted from one area to another. Offers permanent results but is more invasive.
Is BOTOX safe?Yes! Dr. Minuk has provided hundreds of treatments and is experienced in neuromodulator use. However, this is a ‘medical procedure,’ and side effects can occur. Dr. Minuk is a board-certified dermatologist with years of training and experience treating wrinkles and lines that have appeared over the years.
How does BOTOX work?BOTOX in small injected doses stops the muscle from contracting or moving. This results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles with time. The treatment should be repeated every 3-5 months to maintain your correction.
Are the injections painful?There may be mild discomfort, but Dr. Minuk reports none of his patients have discontinued treatment due to discomfort.
What is the recovery time?There is no actual downtime. You can return to your regular schedule immediately after your treatment. However, we ask you not to go to the gym or have a workout treatment day and request you not to lie down for 3 hours following treatment.
What are the most common facial areas for it?The most common treatment areas are frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) around the eyes and horizontal lines across the forehead. Dr. Minuk will balance your eyebrows and provide a browlift if desired! More advanced treatment areas of the lower face, jawline, or neck can be discussed during your consultation.
What are the side effects?The most common side effects are bruising at the injection site, headaches, and mild swelling. A temporary eyelid droop can occur in 1-2% of treatments. We have eyedrop drops to help reverse this uncommon effect.
How often will I need BOTOX injections?BOTOX effects vary from person to person, with the average treatment lasting 3-5 months. We recommend treatments every 3 ½ to 4 months to maintain your correction. However, 2-3 times yearly is helpful as well.
