Meeting Point Health Offers Quality Hair Restoration Treatments in Philadelphia
Our team of specialists offer Philadelphia residents and surrounding communities access to powerful, holistic hair loss treatments and therapies. We believe in Functional Medicine—the principle of uncovering the root cause of a health issue and resolving it as thoroughly as possible.
Our goal is to support new hair growth while simultaneously preventing future hair loss. This principle often calls for the use of both internal and external medicine. In this case, we treat the underlying reason for your hair loss, while encouraging hair regrowth by administering treatments directly to the scalp.
Common Causes of Hair Loss
Though hair loss is typically associated with hormone imbalances, many conditions and health issues can result in hair loss. Things like skin conditions, toxicity, vitamin deficiencies, and even stress may cause hair to fall out at a faster rate than what’s healthy or average.
Common causes of hair loss in all genders include:
Some of these conditions overlap or may cause other conditions to worsen, which could also result in accelerated hair loss.
Hair Loss Treatment Options
We offer a continuum of treatments to encourage hair regrowth and address specific conditions at their core. Our doctors and nurses can help you decide which hair loss treatment or treatments may be the most effective for you. However, before undergoing treatment, it’s always best to have a consultation to identify the cause, review what kind of alopecia you have, and discuss possible treatment options.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is an increasingly popular treatment for a number of skin conditions and maladies, including hair loss. During the treatment, the skin is exposed to red and near-infrared light, which stimulates collagen and elastin production, fostering a healthy environment for hair regrowth. These light waves also encourage cell replication and detoxification, creating a healthier environment for hair follicles.
Red light therapy saunas are non-invasive, have no side effects, and are considered very safe.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance extracted from blood rich in proteins that support cell growth and may help wounds and other skin concerns heal faster. Cosmetically, PRP is often used to even skin tone and reduce fine lines but can also be injected into the scalp to stimulate hair follicles and restore growth.
At Meeting Point, PRP is administered via plasma taken from your own blood and concentrated into a rich serum. That serum is then injected into areas of hair loss. Results may take up to six months.
Traditional microneedling uses a dermaroller or penlike tool covered in tiny needles to create micro-wounds in the skin. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, encouraging the skin to heal smoother, firmer, and have more consistent pigmentation. Microneedling can also stimulate hair regrowth by stimulating activity in hair follicles.
Morpheus8 is a revolutionary new device that uses radiofrequency (RF) heating and is paired with microneedling to amplify the effects of microneedling alone. This handheld device delivers RF energy through the tips of tiny needles, creating micro-wounds and stimulating the lower dermal layers simultaneously. This process is meant to revive hair follicles and encourage regrowth.
While many of our other hair loss treatments stimulate collagen and elastin production, peptides are the actual building blocks of these two compounds. Different peptides trigger different bodily functions, keeping our muscles, skin, and tissues healthy. The copper peptide GHK-Cu is most commonly used to stimulate hair growth. This peptide reduces scalp inflammation and blocks free radicals, increasing blood circulation around hair follicles, which can lead to hair growth.
Placental tissue matrix (PTM) therapy harnesses your body’s natural healing proteins to stimulate hair follicles and growth by releasing a cascade of stem cells over the affected area. Stem cells are powerful regenerative cells that activate collagen, epidermal growth, and other healing factors in the skin that repairs tissue and can help restore lost hair.
Like PRP, PTM stem cells and growth factors are biocompatible and very safe. The extracts are then injected into the affected area, activating the process described above.
Exosomes are the messengers between cells in the body. They carry information in the form of RNA from one cell to another, stimulating the cells to react in specific ways. In exosome therapy, we use exosomes extracted from stem cells to activate an array of growth factors in the hair follicles. An exosome-rich serum is injected into the scalp, immediately beginning a chain reaction that can restore your hair follicles and start new hair growth.
Treating Baldness in Both Men and Women
Though baldness is more accepted socially for men, all genders should enjoy the confidence that comes with a full, healthy head of hair. At Meeting Point, we provide men, women, and people of every gender with soul-centered care tailored to your needs and desires. When you trust us with your treatment, we focus on aligning your body with mind and soul to achieve a balanced, holistic outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Loss
Per the American Academy of Dermatologists, it’s normal to lose anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. People with longer hair may notice strands on their comb or in the shower more easily than those with shorter hair. However, unless an unusual abundance of hair falls in the shower or on your pillow, there’s no need to worry.
Other indications of accelerated hair loss include a more noticeable scalp, a wider part, thinner ponytail (if you wear one), or difficulty styling your hair as usual. If you notice any of these signs, consult a medical professional for further analysis.
When it comes to hair loss, prevention is the best treatment, especially if you have a family history of hair loss or are a woman with a family history of a hormone imbalance. Hair loss therapy only works if the patient still has follicles. If a person waits too long and the follicles themselves have fallen out, it’s not possible to stimulate hair growth.
If you have a history of hair loss in your family or notice signs that your hair is beginning to thin, it’s best to seek treatment immediately to achieve the best results.
Yes unfortunately! According to the MayoClinc, stress may cause the body to flip hair follicles into the resting phase, resulting in inflammation and sudden widespread hair loss. Stress may also cause the body’s immune system to attack follicles, resulting in patchy alopecia.
In both cases, a combination of addressing your stress levels to reverse cell senescence (resting inflamed cells) and undergoing hair growth treatments increases your chances of restoring your natural hair growth patterns.
Studies suggest that eating a balanced diet, getting enough of all your essential vitamins, managing stress, and addressing hormone concerns as soon as possible are all effective ways to prevent hair loss.
These methods can also be employed to stop future hair loss, especially when combined with the proper medical care and hair regrowth treatment plan. Contact us for more information about our hair loss treatments in Philadelphia and how we can help you with the root cause of your hair loss.
