Advanced Trichology founder William Gaunitz, WTS, has been working in the trichology space for over 20 years, researching, refining, and relaunching new products, tools, and information to help consumers regrow the hair they inexplicably started losing. When WebMD wanted to know the latest and greatest in treating telogen effluvium, they went straight to the expert with the most experience.
Here is what William and Advanced Trichology recommend to treat telogen effluvium:
This may increase the shed temporarily for the first four weeks but then should continue to be reduced down to normalization three to four months thereafter. Then with continued use, hair regrowth should return to normal within 12 months.
With twice weekly usage at 15 minutes, shedding should slow within six to eight weeks, and new growth should be visible by month four, continue use to full recovery between 12 and 18 months.
PRP may halt TE within four to six weeks but will need to be re-performed at week six and then again at week 12 to continue the momentum of stabilization and arrest the TE shed. Thereafter, one more maintenance session may be needed around month nine for a full recovery.
Topical melatonin may slow or stop the TE shed within 90 days and encourage regrowth and normalization of the hair growth cycle between nine and 12 months. Once normalization has occurred, you can discontinue the use of the product.
If there is a deficiency, vitamin D3 can support all other modalities to encourage greater stabilization of the hair growth cycle, faster regrowth, and minimize the impact of stress on growth. It’s best to have the optimal vitamin D3 range between 60 and 80 ng/mL. In my experience, this is a supportive measure not a direct impact for telogen effluvium and other inflammatory hair loss.
