Both men and women can suffer from reduction in self-confidence of their appearance when they experience hair loss. Whether it is thinning hair, or bald spots appearing, it can impact how a person feels about the way they look and decrease their self-esteem. Hair loss treatments have come a long way, from effective medications to hair transplants, giving those with thinning or balding issues more options than ever.
There are several medications and supplements that can help improve hair growth. Finasteride, sold under the brand names Proscar and Propecia, is FDA-approved for treating hair loss by reducing the production of DHT. Another option is minoxidil, also known as Rogaine, that can stimulate the hair follicles and improve hair growth.
Forget the old strip and stitch method of hair transplants. There are advanced medical techniques that can transplant individual hair follicles without incisions or stitches. Neograft hair transplants and other new innovations create a more natural appearance and are much less invasive for those wanting to thicken thinning hair or cover bald or receding hair spots.
Platelet rich plasma or PRP injections are another innovation in hair loss treatment. These injections of your own plasma can help rejuvenate hair follicles to improve new growth. PRP injections can be used alone, or in conjunction with hair transplants or other treatments to improve results.
If you are embarrassed of your thinning hair or receding hair line, you do not need to live with hair loss. Contact a local plastic surgeon that offers hair loss treatments as one of their services to explore the many advanced options to restore your natural hair and improve your self-confidence and appearance.
