There are countless different hair loss products and treatments on the market, but not all are equally effective. In this blog, we look at four treatments that offer real results.
Minoxidil provides great results for many men and women, particularly those whose hair loss is at an earlier stage. Approved by the FDA for the treatment for androgenetic alopecia, those using the medicine need to apply it directly to their scalp every day. Although the way that minoxidil functions is not fully understood, clinical trials have proven that it can promote hair growth and stop hair loss.
Finasteride is an oral medicine that works to reduce the levels of DHT (a hormone linked with hair loss) in the blood with visible results in around three months. Clinical trials have demonstrated that when taken daily, it can stop hair loss in men with androgenetic alopecia, as well as stimulating hair growth.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair transplant surgery is a highly effective and permanent solution for restoring areas of hair loss. Advanced techniques mean that even those who have extensive hair loss can return to having a healthy head of hair. During the surgery, hair grafts are removed from the donor area at the back of the head. These hairs are selected because they are genetically strong and will not be affected by androgenetic alopecia. The grafts are placed into the areas of hair loss and, after healing, will grow as normal.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
Low-Level Laser Therapy is a relatively new innovation in hair restoration that studies have shown can have effects comparable to minoxidil and finasteride. The treatment involves wearing a cap fitted with the latest laser technology to direct specific levels of light at the hair follicles. Just three short sessions weekly can improve hair density, thickness and resistance to breakage.
