Hair Restoration for Men in San Diego, CA

When men begin to lose their hair, it can trouble and frustrate them. While male pattern balding is quite common, it can still cause the men affected by it to lose confidence and become self-conscious.

Dr. Roy David provides a wide range of non-surgical and surgical hair restoration techniques for men who want to regrow their hair naturally.

What Are the Causes of Hair Loss For Men?

Various reasons for losing hair exist, including immunity-related conditions such as alopecia, but the top cause of hair loss is a process known as male pattern baldness. This occurs when there is a hereditary predisposition of sensitivity to a certain type of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. Though DHT is normal and even crucial for certain developmental reasons, anyone who is sensitive to DHT is likely to suffer from hair loss. That’s because DHT contributes to the shortening of the growth phase of hair follicles until there are fewer visible hairs left on the scalp.

About 90% of all scalp hairs are usually in this active growth phase, also called the anagen phase. This phase ranges from 2 to 6 years, with the average hair growing for about 3 years. The longer the hair stays in this phase, the longer it grows. Anything short of 2 years will eventually result in balding.

The other hair phases are catagen, known as the resting phase, where the hair stops growing but is not yet shed, and telogen, where the hair is shed and falls out. Since only one hair phase, anagen, contributes to hair growth, it’s vital to understand different techniques to help that phase thrive.

At the end of the telogen phase, after the hair falls out, new hair begins to form. However, when more hair enters and remains in the telogen phase, the result is extensive hair loss. If, over time, hair cannot regrow as fast as it is being lost, it’s time to consider hair growth remedies. Hair loss does not have to be meekly accepted. There are a number of options available to halt or even reverse the progression of baldness.

What Are the Surgical Hair Restoration Options for Men?

Men who suffer from extensive hair loss are often excellent candidates for hair transplants. Dr. David provides several surgical hair restoration methods:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT):
FUT, or the “strip method,” involves the removal of a small strip of skin from the scalp that contains healthy hair follicles and grafting it onto the balding areas.

The FUT hair transplantation technique offers long-lasting and natural results.

ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplantation:
Hair transplantation with ARTAS® is the most precise and fastest FUE treatment offered today. It can significantly reduce the possibility of mistakes during hair transplantation.

ARTAS® robotic hair transplantation provides the following advantages:

  • High success rates
  • Less downtime
  • Most precise and fastest
  • Minimal scarring or none at all
  • Long-lasting hair growth

Non-Invasive Hair Restoration Treatments For Men

Dr. David offers the following non-surgical hair loss treatments for men:


This tried and true topical solution treats male pattern baldness by slowing down hair loss and promoting hair growth. Minoxidil is now available for oral use in tablet form, but this option does carry potential side effects.


For men experiencing hair loss, finasteride inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can cause hair loss.

Finasteride reduces DHT levels to slow hair loss and promote hair regrowth. This medication is taken orally, and women should avoid any contact with the tablets as finasteride can cause birth defects.

PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical option that can invigorate dormant hair follicles to regrow hair. PRP is a regenerative treatment made from the client’s blood, which is processed to isolate only the plasma that is injected into the scalp. 

This approach results in new hair growth and a slowing down of hair loss for thicker, stronger hair.

Light Therapy (LLLT) for Hair Loss

Low-level laser therapy treats hair loss by encouraging new hair growth and improving hair quality. Light therapy can treat male pattern baldness as well as hair loss caused by autoimmune diseases.


Exosome therapy is a new hair loss treatment that improves the quality of hair and can treat male pattern baldness and hair loss due to autoimmune disorders. Exosome therapy works by reducing inflammation, awakening dormant hair follicles, and promoting optimal blood flow in the scalp.
