Topical Dutasteride is available from Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi and Alvi Armani in Beverly Hills

With the increased interested in topical formulations over the past few years Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi felt it was time to inform the hair loss public of our topical finasteride and topical Dutasteride solutions for combating male patterned hair loss. Topical Dutasteride is now available at Alvi Armani in Beverly Hills, California.


Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi and the team at Alvi Armani have long been proponents of medical therapy to prevent further hair loss for patients suffering from various forms of alopecia. For years, we have strongly recommended the use of both finasteride and minoxidil for men, and minoxidil alone for women, both before and after any hair restoration procedure.


However, more and more users of finasteride have come forward over the past decade to discuss moderate to severe side effects with continued use. These side effects range from being sexual in nature to affecting mental acuity and performance.


As an ongoing effort to provide the best medical therapies possible Alvi Armani has been offering a topical finasteride solution as an alternative for those patients that are experiencing such side effects or for patients that do not wish to risk the chance of having such side effects. Our topical finasteride formulation has been effective for many of our patients in preventing further hair loss due to androgenic alopecia, and in many cases, has provided an improvement in hair counts and terminal status of hairs previously seen to be miniaturizing. Side effects from topical finasteride have been reportedly nearly non-existent among our patients.


Topical Dutasteride 

Since 2014 Alvi Armani has also offered a second topical solution with Dutasteride. Dutasteride is a more powerful DHT inhibitor in that it prevents two enzymes, 5 alpha reductase type 1 and type II (finasteride blocks only type II) from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, the primary hormone that causes male patterned hair loss. With the improved conversion prevention rate and longer half-life of Dutasteride when compared to finasteride, hair loss sufferers have reported an increased degree of hair growth and fewer side effects than the already lowered side effects of topical finasteride when compared to oral finasteride.



Why Topical?

 Oral medications are typically very effective for addressing various conditions but unfortunately side effects, if they exist, are usually difficult to isolate due to the medication entering the blood stream. This is known as systemic absorption. This is why topical alternatives are preferable as there is little to no systemic absorption but this benefit comes at the cost of efficacy. Topical formulations usually are not as effective as their oral counterparts. However, if a delivery system can be devised to allow for nearly equal results as the oral counterparts then the likelihood of side effects will decrease.


Thankfully, we have effective delivery systems today that help us to provide effective DHT inhibition with a greatly reduced potential of side effects.

Our topical finasteride and topical Dutasteride formulations have been available since 2014 and are becoming more and more popular. Both topical finasteride and topical Dutasteride are available for all past and future patients of Alvi Armani in different formulations by prescription only and are shipped nationwide and internationally.

Dr. Baubac patients are seeing faster results with PRP in combination with their Hair Restoration procedure

Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi  has been offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment in combination with a Hair Restoration procedure to hair loss patients for a few years now in our Alvi Armani Beverly Hills Clinic.
A patient will have a PRP Session along with the FUE Hair Restoration procedure on the same day.
What we have been seeing with these patients who receive both treatments are:


  • Faster healing times post op
  • Much less shedding of the transplanted grafts after the procedure
  • Higher retention of grafts post procedure
  • Quicker regrowth of grafts
  • Faster Final result


We have found that patients who have PRP with their FUE procedure not only see better yield, but also faster healing post op and earlier growth. The patients follicles come out of the resting phase earlier and their results come in faster.

In addition, patients who have PRP with their FUE can return to the gym earlier post op and return to their normal showering routine faster after their procedure. The faster healing time also allows patients to return to work sooner after their hair restoration.

For illustration:

The patient in the photos had 3,517 grafts FUE and PRP to restore his frontal region, hairline and temples.

The patient is only at 5 months post op in the after photos. The patient took the after photos himself.

 Dr. Baubac offers stand-alone Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment to hair loss patients as well as PRP Therapy in combination with hair restoration procedures.

This revolutionary treatment is used to regenerate hair growth, enhance hair shaft caliber, improve scalp health, revise scars, and expedite healing after hair restoration procedures.

During Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy your own blood is drawn, centrifuged to concentrate healing properties, and re-injected into the scalp to reawaken hibernating follicles, speed healing, rejuvenate your skin and scalp, and improve overall quality, thickness and density of your hair.


The PRP results have proven extraordinary and to be effective in both men and woman suffering from hair loss.


Alvi Armani’s PRP techniques have shown to accelerate the regeneration process, and improve overall scalp health. Additionally, the therapy makes use of the proteins and growth factors that are included in PRP. These factors, including VEGF and PDGF, have shown to induce follicular growth and result in the strengthening of miniaturized hairs making for a fuller, thicker and healthier head of hair.

As a stand-alone therapy, improvements can be seen as early as 2 months after treatment. Results are sustained for more than 18 months and are improved with booster treatments. After your PRP stand-alone treatment, there is little discomfort and full activity can be resumed.

Alvi Armani also offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment in combination with a Hair Restoration procedure. Patients who have a hair restoration combined with PRP treatment have experienced faster healing times post op, less shedding and higher retention of transplanted grafts post procedure, and earlier regrowth of transplanted follicles.

Our team of expert hair restoration physicians, nurses, and technologists whom specialize in PRP therapy is led by world renowned hair loss specialist Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi MD, Chief Hair Restoration Surgeon and Medical director of Alvi Armani.

Alvi Armani offers Executive Non-Shaving procedures

Some patients may delay having a hair transplant procedure because they are concerned they must fully shave their head in order to have their hair restored.

Plenty of patients want to restore their hair but do not want to incur the inconvenience of shaving their heads to do it.

If you’re looking to keep your hair restoration under wraps, Alvi Armani offers you a way to restore your hair while evading having your head shaved, allowing you to conceal that you had your hair restoration done.

With Alvi Armani’s Executive Non-Shaving Hair Restoration option, the hair on the top is left at normal length, and only very small sections are clipped in the donor region, which are then concealed by the patient’s existing hair keeping the procedure concealed and hidden.

Alvi Armani’s Executive Non-Shaving Procedure is a perfect solution for those in representative occupations who cannot shave their head due to the nature of their job. It is also a great option for patients who want to keep their procedure concealed, private and unnoticed as it allows patients to keep their original hair in the same style and length, during and after the procedure.

The patient can then return to work and every day activities immediately without people knowing that a hair restoration has taken place.

Below is an example of an Alvi Armani patient who has had the Executive Non-Shaving procedure, and how it looks after the restoration.

Ask our specialized consultants if you qualify for a non-shaving hair restoration procedure.
