While Dr. Raggio utilizes the power of platelet-rich plasma treatments, sometimes hair restoration can be achieved with medications alone. Below you will find the medical-grade options we offer at the Alabama Center for Hair Restoration for those who are experiencing hair loss.


Designed especially to achieve fuller, thicker hair, Viviscal™ is a shampoo that gently cleanses the hair and scalp using a proprietary marine complex that promotes the appearance of healthy-looking hair growth. This complex — AminoMar C™ —contains a blend of marine protein, minerals, and vitamins that help regenerate new cells and feed existing cells.

Nutritional supplements 

Nutrafol® is an all-natural daily oral supplement that focuses on achieving overall body wellness in order to target thinning hair. Using a proprietary blend of botanicals, vitamins, and antioxidants that include 22 different ingredients, Nutrafol improves imbalances within the body to not only reduce hair loss, but to also make it denser and healthier.

Laser light therapy

Laser light therapy (also called “low-level laser therapy”) works when light is absorbed into the scalp, stimulating weak hair follicles to be stronger and encourage hair growth. This process also promotes micro-circulation of the scalp, which creates a richer blood supply and more nutrients, which also make the hair follicles stronger.


Rogaine® is an FDA approved hair growth product that is applied directly to the scalp to increase circulation and nourish the hair follicle. The process partially enlarges the hair follicles, prolonging the growth phase of the hair. This results in denser, stronger, healthier growth. The earlier a patient starts using this product, the more likely it is to be effective.


Propecia® is an oral hair growth medication that has been FDA approved to treat pattern hair loss, and it comes with a 60% to 70% opportunity for hair regrowth and thickening. Propecia works by shrinking the hormone that is responsible for male pattern baldness, DHT. This shrinking of the hormone is not permanent, but is very effective for combatting hair loss.

Which treatment is right for me?

In order to determine which hair restoration medication may be right for your specific type of hair loss and goals, we invite you to visit Dr. Raggio for a consultation. After examining your scalp and carefully listening to your hair loss history, he will be able to recommend the best course of action for you.
