Hair Restoration Options

We can categorize hair loss solutions as non-surgical hair growth treatment (Propecia, Lasercomb for example) and surgical hair restoration. For people suffering from hereditary hair loss, there is unfortunately no hair loss cure. In such cases, medication like Propecia or Rogaine and even the Lasercomb may work to an extent as hair growth remedies, by slowing down the progression of thinning and baldness. For early stages of thinning, these hair loss solutions can help regrow some hair as well, but they will not fully restore the hair and hairline that have been lost. The only proven effective solution to genetic hair loss is hair transplantation. It works by restoring lost hairlines and hairs.

While surgical hair transplantation is the only permanent and the most significant receding hairline treatment, these other hair loss solutions can help in your fight against hair loss.

Surgical hair transplantation

Surgical hair transplantation involves transplanting hair follicles from one area of the head (called the donor area) to another (the recipient area). Most causes of hair loss may be traced to the hormone DHT. In hair transplantation, DHT-resistant follicles are removed from the scalp and artfully placed in thinning areas on the top and front of the head. Our patients find there are many benefits of hair transplantation over other treatment options. You may also wish to see the steps involved in a Bosley hair replacement procedure.
