Growth Factors to get your hair growing!

We have heard many ways Platelet Rich Plasma has helped with. From injured joints, tendons and other musculoskeletal problems and now HAIR!! Did you know that our very own blood (PRP) contains growth factors? Yes! Here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we perform multiple PRP treatments on a daily basis.

Physical trauma such as surgeries, illnesses, automobile accidents, pregnancy, and emotional stress can cause hair loss. Don’t worry, situations as such only cause hair loss temporarily. Having such physical trauma causes the your hair to go in a state of shock. As your body begins to heal and recover the hair lost will begin to grow back. As for emotional stress prevent having anxiety and overthinking, exercising and therapy can be great support.  Even the infamous El Chapo has experienced this… read more,

Vitamin A and Protein

Sometimes we see as taking more than needed vitamin supplements is doing our body good. Vitamin A containing supplements can trigger hair loss. Keep in mind that the daily dose of Vitamin A is 5,000 IU for adults. Lack of protein in ones diet can also shut down hair growth. Usually hair loss begins 2 to 3 months after protein intake drops. Controlling intake amounts of vitamin A and making sure your getting protein in will solve the issue.

Male Pattern Baldness or Heredity?

Both! Male pattern baldness is caused by a mixture of genes and hormones. MPB (male pattern baldness) follows a pattern in which hair is lost at the temples. Hair loss in women is known as androgenic or androgenetic alopecia. Women don’t usually have a receding hairline like men do. Women will have noticeable hair loss or thinning at the part. Both women and men benefit from minoxidil or rogaine to help grow and maintain the existing hair. Hair transplantation and PRP treatments are also and option.


Having an underactive thyroid gland can cause hair loss as well. Your thyroid gland produces hormones that interact with your metabolism and growth. When it is not producing enough hormones it affects your hair causing it to fall out. Taking synthetic thyroid medication and getting thyroid levels to normal should take care of the issue.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is a result of an overactive immune system. As our immune system is going it targets our hair as a foreign object and attacks causing hair loss in round patches through out the scalp. Steroid injections and romaine are the go to’s when treating alopecia areata.

Hair Styling

Over styling our hair with tight braids, ponytails or using products such as hot oils or relaxers can hurt our hair. Doing these types of treatments or the way we style our hair can cause root damage causing your hair to be lost permanently. Limiting the amount of use of these products or hair styles will help us keep our hair longer. Avoid using heat products to once a week if possible.


Does PRP sound familiar? PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has been around for quite some time. It is commonly used for joint rejuvenation, male enhancement and aesthetic procedures like face lifts.
What about hair loss? Hair loss can be caused by many factors in both men and women. Whether it is genetic or for medical reasons, no one likes the fact that they are losing hair. Now a days there are many options to help with hair loss. Some such as minoxidil or roGaine, laser therapy and even hair transplantation.
Did you know that now not only does PRP help with joints and aesthetic procedures, but now it is an option for hair loss as well. PRP is created from the patients own blood, it is placed in a centrifuge so that the plasma is separated. PRP stimulates the present hair to produce longer and stronger strands of hair.  Local anesthetic is used to help minimize any pain and discomfort. The PRP is then injected to the areas that Dr. Bishara has recommended to be treated.
One of the good things about this treatment is there is no down time, you can resume regular activities the moment you leave our office. Some swelling may occur but it is not very common. PRP is a great option if surgery to preserve your existing hair and to support hair transplantation. A consultation with Dr. Mark A Bishara is all it takes to get started with hair loss prevention.

Respectfully yours,
Mark A Bishara, M.D., P.A. Medical Director

Dear Friends of BCS & HR,
Finesteride has been used for years to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).  One additional benefit has been the reactivation of dormant hair follicles and making miniaturized hair shafts more robust.
Merck has published side effect data that includes but is not limited to erectile dysfunction, persistent decreased libido, and mastodynia or breast pain.   Despite its protective effects against low grade prostate cancer, finesteride has been denied wider indications for its use at the government level.  More long term data will be necessary to determine whether the genetics of androgen receptors on the prostate are modified in prostate cancer in patients with high Gleason scores who previously took finesteride.
Recently an article was published regarding the side effect profile to finesteride.  Not only was it written poorly, it was a biased approach at collecting data from a questionnaire on a biased website.  The selection bias and study design was not only non scientific but they can be reduced to a collection of inflammatory statements that belongs in a magazine rack in the grocery store check out line.
Respectfully yours,
Mark A. Bishara, M.D., P.A., Medical Director
