Medical Management of Hair Loss

Men and women trust the hair loss treatment specialists at the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration for safe, medically sound treatments that help them maintain and regrow their hair.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeons Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Montague offer medical treatment options for people at all stages of hair loss. These medications and supplements support hair health and vitality, whether taken before, instead of, or after hair transplant surgery.

Our hair restoration specialists are here to guide you through your many options during a private consultation. They often recommend medical therapy before proceeding to hair transplant surgery and pre-treat hair transplant patients before surgery. Our surgeons believe that more comprehensive hair loss treatment plans produce better overall results.


Developed by trichology experts (hair and scalp specialists), TrichoTest (made by Fagron Genomics) uses in-depth analysis of your DNA to take the guesswork out of treating hair loss. The process is simple:

  1. We collect a saliva sample using a simple cheek swab and have you complete a medical history and lifestyle questionnaire.
  2. We send your sample and questionnaire to the Fagron Genomics US lab.
  3. The lab performs a detailed analysis and, within about 5 to 7 business days, sends us a detailed report identifying specific genetic markers associated with different types of hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness), alopecia areata, and other forms of hair thinning. The report also lists the treatments you are most likely to respond to and not respond to. It also identifies risk factors proactively before significant hair thinning or balding occurs.
  4. Your hair restoration surgeon creates a tailored treatment plan that includes the treatments and medications that are best suited to you.

Propecia® (Finasteride)

DHT is a male hormone thought to cause hair follicles to shrink (miniaturize), contributing to male pattern hair loss. Finasteride (the active ingredient in Propecia) blocks the formation of DHT to interrupt a key factor in developing inherited male pattern hair loss in men.

Propecia, a prescription tablet taken once daily, has been proven to effectively lower DHT in the scalp. With continued use, it increases the number of scalp hairs. Generally, you will not be able to regain all your lost hair. If you stop taking Propecia, you will likely lose the hair you have gained within 12 months of your last pill.

Note: Propecia is only for men; it has not been proven safe for women or children.
