Biotin for hair growth

Biotin for hair growth

It is believed that the vitamin Biotin improves the basic protein that makes up hair, skin and nails. This basic protein is called keratin. Biotin deficiency can cause brittle hair and hair loss. Biotin can be taken in a tablet form or given intramuscularly as an injection.  Many factors can play a role in hair loss and thus our physicians offer a comprehensive assessment to rule out other causes for your hair loss besides offering biotin supplementation.

Many supplements and vitamins are not completely absorbed by our bodies through ingestion and thus intramuscular biotin injection has been helpful in increasing biotin levels faster in many patients. Correct dosages of biotin supplementation have shown an increase in hair growth, hair structure and thickness as well as a decrease in hair loss.

Our Beverly Hills office provides Bioton intra-muscular injections as well as IV Bioton and other IV Vitamins for hair growth and strenghtening. We also perform PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma injections of the scalp for hair growth, hair loss, streghtening of the hair follicles and stimulation of hair cells. Don't forget to ask about our specially made biotin tablets that can be purchased through our online store or in our office.
