Male-pattern baldness is the most common form of hair loss. But thinning, receding hair is a problem that affects men and women of any age. At Male Clinic USA, we’d like you to know that balding isn’t something you have to settle for. You also don’t need to buy expensive wigs or hairpieces that don’t quite match your natural hair color. Today, we’d like to give you the facts about hair restoration.
What is Hair Restoration?
There are many effective techniques when it comes to hair restoration. Biotin-infused shampoos, oral biotin supplements and biotin-infused leave-in products, aren’t among them. Supplements can help if you’re genetically predisposed to hair loss and you haven’t noticed your hair start to thin yet. Even some specialty shampoos can help to support scalp health or hair strength. But their efficacy will depend on the type of alopecia (hair loss) you develop later on. And still, these products can only go so far. If you have noticeable hair loss, you need help from a medical professional. Here are some techniques that are available:
Androgen-Dependent Hair Loss Medications
Hair restoration doesn’t always have to involve surgery. Androgen-dependent hair loss medications, such as Finasteride, are FDA-approved to treat pattern baldness. These medications work by preventing testosterone in your scalp from converting into dihydrotestosterone. This hormone is a significant contributing factor in male pattern baldness. You can expect to see improved hair growth after months of taking this medication regularly.
Androgen-Independent Hair Loss Medications
Androgen-independent hair loss medications, such as Minoxidil, work differently but are just as effective. These drugs stimulate hair growth by dilating tiny blood vessels in your body. They are safe and effective. Like Finasteride, Minoxidil is FDA-approved for hair restoration and works after months of taking your regularly scheduled doses.
If your hair loss is extensive, you may need some type of hair restoration procedure. PRP offers an all-natural hair transplantation method that takes advantage of the power of your own blood in order to regrow your own hair. During this innovative treatment, PRP is taken from your blood and used in the thinning areas to stimulate hair growth.
