Hair Loss Treatment Options
Hair transplant surgery is probably the best hair loss treatment available today that can fully restore your balding hairlines. Hair transplants are viable hair loss treatments for men and women alike as long as you have the healthy donor hairs. This is because the newly transplanted follicle is taken from a healthy patch on the side of your own head, and will continue to grow in its natural pattern for the rest of your life, blending in seamlessly with hair already present.
Restoration surgery has come a long way in 40 years, obvious hair plugs are a thing of the past. As a hair loss treatment, transplants have evolved from a surgery to an art form. Today's hair restoration surgeons use follicular unit transplantation to create a flawless, natural look. Hair grows in groupings of 2-4 (follicular units) and by artfully recreating these groupings in thinning or balding areas, your surgeon can craft a look that's indistinguishable from nature... even to your barber!
Laser Hair Therapy is a new hair loss treatment that utilizes some of the most advanced equipment on earth. We all know that lasers can be used to remove hair, but lasers can be used to restore it as well. Baldness is often connected with brittle, unhealthy follicles; Laser Therapy can help make your hair healthy again. Laser Restoration improves blood flow, which improves hair's cellular metabolism and protein synthesis; in short, it creates fuller, thicker hair. Laser treatments are often used in conjunction with hair loss treatments like transplant surgery to increase the quality of new grafts. With Laser Hair Restoration, hair loss treatments have leaped into the 21st century.

While not a hair loss treatment, a hair system is a hair loss product that can help restore confidence. The days of bad toupees are over; it's all about a replacement system that is custom designed for your head and your particular hair loss pattern. Replacement systems often use real hair that is so life-like that it actually appears to be growing as your own natural hairline. Even women enjoy the benefits of hair replacement treatments, mainly because of their comfortable feel and realistic appearance.

There are currently only two FDA approved medicinal hair restoration treatments for baldness: PropeciaÂ® and RogaineÂ®. Propecia is an oral tablet taken once a day to control the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. This pill is presently only approved for hair loss treatment in men and can have harmful side effects for woman who are pregnant or may become pregnant. Rogaine is a topical solution that works as a treatment on both men and women. Both baldness treatments have both been found to slow down the rate of follicular loss with few cases of actual hair growth reported. Resoration drugs can, however, be effective along side other treatments such as transplant surgery to help your new grafts grow thicker.
