LaserCap is an FDA cleared therapy to stop hair loss and regrow hair. It uses low-level laser light therapy to improve cellular metabolism and function of the hair follicle producing thicker, stronger, longer hair. LaserCap is backed by experts in the fields of science, medicine, and technology.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Optimizing your hormones can dramatically decrease hair loss and promote overall better health. We offer many options including BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
PRP Platelet Rich Plasma + / Exosomes / ECMs
PRP preparation and application techniques have evolved significantly over the years.
You may have heard of the “vampire facial,” that uses a patient’s own blood to enhance skin. We use this same technology in hair restoration.
The use of PRP + Exosomes Amniotic/Placental ECM (Extracellular Matrix) for the non-surgical, non-invasive treatment of male or female hair loss is available from Dr. Chavez and Dr. Mireles Chavez at Optimal Medical Group in Fresno, CA.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) protein is derived from whole blood to promote hair growth. It starts by drawing a sample of blood from the patient and then centrifuged twice to create the ideal concentration of platelets and growth factors. At Optimal Medical Group, our PRP is enhanced with Exosomes for maximum rejuvenation and repair of skin and hair follicles.
After the PRP and Exosomes are combined, they are injected into the scalp following a local anesthetic block. The growth factors are released from the platelets helping to maintain the hair and to stimulate growth.
The procedure takes about one hour and has no downtime.

Causes of hair loss
People may notice mild hair loss from time to time without worrying much about it. It is common for people to lose about 100 hairs every day. Under normal circumstances, this hair will grow back. However, when a person notices a significant thinning on the scalp, the loss may be permanent if the person does not do anything to stop it.
Hair loss can be difficult to combat, prevent or reverse without professional services. Some of the reasons for pattern baldness and other types of hair loss can be:
- Family history
- A side effect of certain medications or supplements
- Effects of disease treatment such as radiation or chemotherapy
- A severely stressful event
Signs that a person may need non-surgical hair restoration
At Optimal Medical Group, we see patients of all backgrounds and from a wide age range. Our general practitioner can treat these people with tactics that do not include operations. It may be time to visit us when a person notices that hair is starting to come loose by combing or gently tugging at it.
Gradual and consistent thinning on the top of the head is also a troubling sign. Also, if a person detects large bald spots on the head, they should visit our office right away.
Effects of hair loss
When people think about losing hair, many consider it a normal consequence of growing older. People often associate the condition with those in their 40s or later years. Younger hair-loss patients and even older ones may experience emotional and social challenges with this issue.
Losing hair can be embarrassing for some people and may also hinder their desire to be in social situations. People may even struggle at work or relationships due to feelings of shame over their appearance. We can help restore a person’s hair and minimize hair loss.
Invasive operations can be hard on the body, which is why Optimal Medical Group believes it is essential to offer non-surgical hair restoration options. Medications are among the most common responses to restoring hair. Drugs such as Rogaine and Propecia can help the patient regrow hair not just on the head but all over the body. Low-level laser therapy is another possibility.
This treatment can increase the growth rates of hairs. Microneedling, which uses small needles to inflict tiny wounds on the skin, can trigger the production of cells and hair follicles. Our practitioner can help patients choose the restoration process that makes the most sense Dr. Juan Chavez, MD, Dr. Lucia Mireles-Chavez, MD, or someone on our team will examine the patient and get a full health history. We will then explore different factors such as the patient’s age, cause of hair loss and what medications the patient may be taking.
The patient and practitioner will evaluate different strategies and will choose one that both feel comfortable with. Over the coming weeks and months, we will closely monitor hair growth and determine whether to make any modifications in the treatment. Results will vary from patient to patient. Our team will work with the patient every step of the way. We can utilize other non-surgical options for other health issues, known as PRP Treatment.
