When you are experiencing hair loss, medical hair restoration can be one of the most effective ways to get your hair back. This means you don’t have to rely on wigs or hair pieces to gain back your self-confidence. The hair on your head can be that which you grow on your own, regardless of what caused the hair loss in the first place.
There are a number of reasons why hair loss occurs. Sometimes it has to do with hormones, other times it has to do with elevated levels of stress, scarring, or other problems. It’s important to establish why you have hair loss to have a better understanding of why it is happening and how you can prevent further hair loss in the future.
Whether you are a man or a woman, you can take advantage of medical hair restoration. There are three methods that are commonly used over other methods. You may already be familiar with some of the options when it comes to hair loss treatment for men, but you want something that is going to work regardless of whether you are a man or a woman.
One of the first to look into is surgical hair restoration. This can include an actual hair transplant, which involves giving you back follicles that have been damaged through one thing or another. If you never had hair to begin with or yours have been significantly damaged, this may be an option for you – though it can be very costly and you will experience some recovery time.
Another type of medical hair restoration is through medications. This can include oral medications as well as medicated shampoos. These are going to help balance your hormones and help to activate the follicles that have stopped growing. If your condition is related to hormones, the medications may work. If it has nothing to do with hormones, however, you may find that you are wasting your time and money.
The third and most popular option for medical hair restoration is laser therapy. This is where a low level laser is used across the bald or thinning parts of your head in order to stimulate hair growth at the root. After a series of treatments, you can begin sprouting new hair once again to fill in all of the hair that you have lost over time. This has provided significant results for men and women of all ages.
When you need to overcome baldness or hair thinning, there is an array of options that will allow you to get your real hair growing once again. This means you do not have to rely on the over-the-counter methods that generally take your money and provide you with little to no results.
It’s important to talk to a doctor about the medical hair restoration methods that can work for you.
