What Are Hair Loss Treatments?
Most people associate balding with males, but about 40% of those experiencing hair loss are women. Like men, women can inherit androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss. Genetic alopecia in females is brought on by a similar response to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes male hair loss. Women fight low levels of the testosterone derivative DHT, and when these hormones become imbalanced, the result gives you damaged and inefficient hair follicles. In other circumstances, women who experience a life-changing event (such as menopause or pregnancy) can be subjected to large quantities of hair falling out because of stress and hormonal imbalances. Dr. Caroline Conner offers many options to cure and revive hair loss based on each individual's needs. If you want to find out more about the causes of hair loss and your options for treatment, you should schedule a consultation in Fountain Valley, CA.
Hair Loss Treatment Options
Once the reason for your hair loss is diagnosed, Dr. Conner can go over your treatment choices. If you have thinning hair or are in the early stages of baldness, a nonsurgical treatment, like low-level laser or PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, may be recommended. While oral medications might be a choice for men, they aren't recommended for women because complications are more common.
You may also consider hair restoration surgery with minimally invasive FUT (follicular unit transplantation) or FUE (follicular unit extraction). This may help if you have advanced thinning or large bald patches to create natural-looking results. During your consultation, Dr. Conner will create your treatment plan and talk about what you can expect during the process.
Dr. Caroline Conner Reviews
I’ve been to my fair share of BioTe physicians for HRT since 2014. I’m so glad I cross paths with Dr. Conner because she goes above and beyond the service other physicians I’ve had. She is extremely knowledgeable in HRT and takes in consideration the patients symptoms not just the tests. In my HRT journey I have met more Dr’s that don’t know what they are doing than do and Dr. Conner is a breath of fresh air. Her staff is professional and amazing. Mercedes (her assistant) took care of all my needs and made sure to follow up with me so I know what the next step always was. I will definitely be referring Dr. Conner’s HRT treatments to all my friends and look forward to my next office visit!
Hormone therapy expert. Wonderful staff and amazing Doctor. 10 stars!
I’ve been to a few different doctors for testosterone therapy and Dr Connor is by far the best and most knowledgeable in the industry. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.
Best doctor I have EVER had!!! I have been w/Dr. Conner for all 3 of my pregnancies and her and her office have ALWAYS gone above and beyond to provide care to me and my babies. I love Dr. Conner’s office and friendly staff and NP and I ALWAYS recommend this office to everyone I know bc they are the best around! Dr. Conner has the best bed side manner. I literally can not say enough great things about Dr. Conner and her office they are awesome!! You will not be disappointed going here. My insurance changed for my 2nd pregnancy and I switched to a different medical group so I could still continue care with Dr. Conner. I will never go elsewhere I’m a Pt for life. I have also recommended my friends here also and have had other friends that have seen Dr. Conner also that recommended me there and we all love her. She is so safe and careful and ensures the best care possible to protect you and your unborn baby. I have also been to the office for regular check ups also outside of pregnancy and again they are so professional and courteous and safe.
I had the best experience with Dr. Conner. I had gestational diabetes and her and Mercedez, her nurse (and really all of her staff) took such good care of me and my son. I had an emergency C-section and dr. Conner made the experience a lot less stressful. She is super knowledgeable and I felt like she genuinely cared for me and my baby. I can’t recommend her enough!

Hair Loss Treatment FAQs
What hair loss treatments do you offer?
At Dr. Caroline Conner, we offer a wide range of hair loss treatments for men and women, including some of most advanced and cutting-edge options available today. Based on the cause, nature, pattern, and severity of your hair loss, as well as other individual factors, Dr. Conner may recommend PRP therapy, FUT or FUE hair restoration, oral medications (for men), or another treatment option to help you regain fuller hair growth and renewed self-esteem.
Does PRP hair loss treatment really work?
PRP therapy for hair loss has been shown to be a highly effective method for slowing hair loss and shedding while stimulating the growth of new, healthy hair. This treatment involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, processing it to isolate the PRP, and finally injecting the platelet-rich solution into the scalp. PRP therapy stimulates hair growth by promoting blood circulation, nourishing hair follicles, and triggering the production of growth factors and collagen.
How soon will I see results after hair loss treatment?
The results of your hair loss treatment will depend greatly on which treatment is performed, the nature and severity of your hair loss, environmental and lifestyle factors, and many other variables. Generally speaking, patients should understand that the majority of hair loss treatments take some time to produce visible results. This may mean weeks, months, or even longer before the full effects of treatment are realized. Still, many patients enjoy some noticeable results early on, which can continue to improve over time.
