Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Explained

When it comes to hair restoration, there are plenty of options out there. The first ones that come to mind are surgical choices, hair transplant procedures like FUE or MDEE, formerly known as FUT. But for those who are not inclined to these invasive procedures, or whose hair loss has not reached the point where such interventions are necessary, the good news is that there are plenty of non-surgical hair restoration treatments out there. So for those looking for non-invasive ways to restore their hair’s youthful look, here is an outline of the treatments and methods used at Ziering Medical.

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration Treatments at Ziering Medical 

Formula ZMin

Minoxidil has been one of the most popular and effective therapy options to treat pattern baldness since its FDA approval. Minoxidil, combined with other substances, can provide even more effective and long-lasting results than Minoxidil alone. 

Formula ZMin is a customized, compounded prescription solution that contains the FDA-approved hair growth medication Minoxidil, Retinoic Acid for enhanced penetration, and a sophisticated blend of anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and anti-androgen ingredients. ZMin offers a more powerful, user-friendly solution for stimulating hair growth and decreasing hair loss in men and women.

A one-on-one consultation at Ziering Medical is the best way to determine if you are the right candidate for a prescription of ZMin. Routine medical tracking is recommended to achieve the best possible results with ZMin or any hair restoration regimen.


1mg doses of Finasteride prevent the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotes-tosterone (DHT) in the body. Finasteride is used to treat male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. Finasteride is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children.

As measured by hair counts, in a 5-year study of men with mild to moderate hair loss, 2 out of 3 of the men who took 1 mg of Finasteride daily regrew some hair. 


For many hair loss patients looking to slow down their hair loss and regrow their hair, finasteride or Propecia, as it is more commonly known, has been the go-to FDA approved medication. Finasteride has a proven track record of efficacy and of delivering great results.

Viviscal Professional

Developed by Finnish chemists, Viviscal Professional hair nourishment supplements provide essential marine enriched nutrients that nourish your hair from the inside out.

This supplement is 100% natural and contains an exclusive AminoMar C™ Marine Complex, 28% marine enriched protein. It provides the essential proteins needed to nourish thinning hair and encourage existing hair growth in those suffering from temporary hair loss.


Millions of men and women have watched their eyelashes gradually disappear through illness, trauma, age, or basic genetics. Doctors call it hypotrichosis, but patients call it having thin and short eyelashes.

LATISSE® is the medical industry’s new prescription treatment used to grow eyelashes thicker, darker, and longer. It’s FDA-approved and shows full, beautiful results in just 12 to 16 weeks.

Long, thick, dark eyelashes are just weeks away by regularly using LATISSE® solution consistently on your upper lids with the specialized brush every night. Your eyelashes will experience gradual, measurable growth over time, with noticeable growth after just one to two months.


Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is an advanced treatment that leverages new endocrinology developments to fight hair loss and turn back the clock on your natural hairline. Dr. Ziering was an early proponent of this entirely non-surgical treatment, and today he’s an advisor to Physical Male – our exclusive HRT partner. That’s how deeply he believes in their work.

During the transitional years of menopause and andropause, falling hormones in both men and women can contribute to the shortened growth phase of hair follicles, causing them to shrink until fewer hairs are left visible on the scalp.

If your doctor determines that hormone replacement is the right course of action, he or she will develop a treatment plan tailored to your age, gender, hair loss severity, and other factors. 

Laser Therapy Hair Restoration

A standard option that is effective, non-invasive, painless, and has no known side effects. Patients experience a slowing down of hair loss and new hair growth as a result of laser treatments. Their existing hair becomes fuller and thicker by the effects of the low-level laser hair therapy at Ziering.


Clinically proven and FDA-cleared to promote hair regrowth for men and women with pattern hair loss, the Ziering Laser Cap is a prescription-strength, portable hair growth device with 304 laser diodes, delivering a 3.93 J/cm2 energy dose to your hair follicle. It is available by prescription only for our patients.

The Ziering Laser Cap stimulates inactive hair follicles using Low-Level-Laser Therapy (LLLT), a safe, all-natural, and painless hair regrowth treatment. LLLT illuminates the hair follicles with monochromatic red laser light at a finely tuned wavelength and intensity across a wide area of your scalp.

With regular and proper use of this laser cap for hair growth, 30 minutes per day/3 times per week, patients usually notice a difference in their thinning areas within 60 days. This hair loss treatment is scientifically proven to increase hair strength and diameter and improve the overall luster and appearance of your hair quality. For the best results, Ziering physicians may recommend that LLLT be used in combination with ZMin, hair supplements, and/or medications like finasteride. It is prescribed for every hair transplant patient to aid wound healing, reduce swelling, and speed hair regrowth post-operatively.


A protein-based injection, the Amnio-Z shot is derived from human amniotic components and is a rich source of various biologically active growth factors. These are components of tissue regeneration and wound healing.

Its benefits include:

  • Stimulating tissue remodeling – regeneration of hair follicles
  • Anti-inflammatory activity – aiding with scalp recovery
  • Stimulating cell growth/formation
  • It is a short procedure with no anesthesia, no blood is drawn, and no downtime for the patient.


Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a tattooing technique in which minute, metabolically inert pigment granules are implanted below the epidermis with artistic strokes, mimicking the short hair appearance of a closely shaved scalp.

SMP may be used to enhance hair transplants, aid in hair transplant repair procedures, camouflage linear scars, or, in some cases, as an alternative to hair transplant surgery. Scalp Micropigmentation is one more option offered to help patients achieve a more youthful look.


Suppose you are not ready for a hair transplant or need some time to make a final decision about having a hair restoration procedure. In that case, following a prescribed course of non-surgical hair restoration treatment is key for slowing down your hair loss and preserving as much of your native hair as possible. Hair loss is a progressive health condition, and early intervention is crucial, and it impacts the outcome of a hair transplant procedure. 

At Ziering Medical, we recommend and offer a variety of prescription-grade non-surgical hair restoration treatments and therapies which can prevent ongoing hair loss and, in some cases, stimulate hair growth. Most hair loss treatment plans include a combination of these medications and therapies as stand-alone treatment options and also in combination with hair transplant surgery.
