Androgenic alopecia can have a significant impact on women across a spectrum of age. The psychological and social impact of hair thinning and hair loss can significantly decrease quality of life. Dr. Alison Bruce breaks down different types of hair loss, who’s a candidate, and new therapies on the horizon. Dr. Shane Shapiro will discuss the application of regenerative medicine to this condition and how platelet rich plasma has demonstrated efficacy at regrowing hair.
