Men always struggled to find a way to combat hair loss. But it has been fairly recently when they were able to slow down the hair fall process or regain their lost hair. Hair loss therapy is booming business nowadays and there is no shortage of hair fall solutions including pills and topical potions. Here, we are going to discuss 3 hair loss treatments that really work.
It seems magical to take a pill and grow your hair; doesn’t it? The good news is that there are some medicines scientifically proved to regrow hair and slow down the hair fall process, but the magic pill to regrow hair still has to be invented. These medicines can help some people some of the time, but they don’t work for everyone every time. So managing your expectations is very important. The medicines are good at stopping hair fall and growing hairs you’ve lost recently. They are not able to regrow the hair you’ve lost long ago. And they are certainly not going to give you the same hair, you used to have in your teens.
These medicines take some time to show results, It’s months – not days or weeks. You’ve to use the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor for at least one year before forming an opinion. And the results are not permanent. Results remain as far as you continue the use of medicine. When you discontinue the use of medicine, the results will gradually vanish.
Two medicines are particularly effective in this regard. Finasteride is a pill which works by reducing the production of DHT (DHT is the main cause of hair loss). Finasteride has shown very promising results for minimizing hair loss. The other one is a topical solution, Minoxidil. This solution stimulates hair follicles. Both medicines work well together and show good results.
2. Low level laser therapy
Lasers are very popular to permanently reduce body hair, but do you know that they can also be used to stimulate hair growth? The lasers are effective; however, the exact level of effectiveness is still being investigated. Low level laser therapy is good at stimulating the area that still has some hair. It is not effective in completely bald area.
Low-level laser therapy is a non-invasive therapy that has been in use for many years. Its primary uses have been to accelerate wound healing, decrease inflammation, and relieve intense chronic pain. Many doctors believe the effectiveness of lasers is due to its photochemical reaction with hair follicle. This reaction signals the cell to start growing rather than slowly dying. Hairs that have already started thinning apparently respond to the treatment. This treatment needs almost one year to show any visible improvements.
3. Hair transplant
Hair transplant is, currently, the most reliable method to restore lost hair. It can work on any area of the head, even if it has gone completely bald. All you need is reasonable supply of donor hair. There are certain parts on the scalp which are less prone to balding like back and the sides of the head. In hair transplant, hair follicles are harvested from these areas and transplanted into the affected area. Fortunately, these harvested hair follicles retain their balding resistant properties and stay in the affected area for a long time.
Recent improvements in hair transplant, like FUT and FUE hair transplant procedure has made it even more attractive. Now transplanted hair gives a very natural look with minimum maintenance needs. With the use of FUE technique, the recovery time has decreased dramatically and hair follicles can be harvested from almost any part of the body.
