Dr. Craig Ziering Mentioned in NEWBEAUTY| Pros Run Through Their Favorite Hair-Growth Enhancers
While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating thinning hair, Beverly Hills, CA hair restoration specialist Dr. Craig Ziering says there is one treatment in particular that offers solid results for a wide variety of patients: KeraLase—a nonablative laser—combined with the at-home topical KeraFactor Scalp Stimulating Solution ($169). “KeraLase creates microchannels in the scalp that stimulate the hair follicles and support better delivery of the growth factors, peptides and liposomes in KeraFactor, which is massaged into the scalp post-treatment and then taken home to use twice daily.”
“A tried-and-true treatment that increases the micro-blood supply to the hair follicles when used continuously, minoxidil—used in a concentration of 5 percent—is a topical that enhances hair growth,” says Gaunitz. But, Dr. Ziering says the effects of this strand-booster are amplified when used alongside prescription-grade topical finasteride. “The most effective prescription medication for treating hair loss in men, finasteride functions as an alpha-reductase inhibitor, blocking the conversion of testosterone to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes hair to thin,” he explains. In Musely’s The Hair Solution ($70), the two ingredients are used in tandem for effective results.
