At your consultation, Andrew J. Kaufman, M.D., evaluates the quantity of lost hair and assesses the condition of your hair, skin, and scalp. Factors including age, degree of hair loss, type of hair (color and texture), and available donor hair allow Dr. Kaufman to determine if underlying environmental causes or other reasons are impacting hair loss or breakage. For many patients, also taken into account are expectations – and how well a particular option fits in with your lifestyle. Capillus® fits many lifestyles and may be a good option to decrease hair loss and stimulate hair growth. To learn more about the Capillus®, please call our office today at 805 497-1694.
