Top Tips of Hair Loss Treatment
Hair loss is a hard thing for anybody to grapple with, and women specifically. While it is typically thought to be a male problem, it is also something that affects women as well. It is a problem of several people. Hair loss is crucial to avoid, but a lot of people find that it’s difficult, this is a cure to assist.
Hair loss is a typical problem which is frequently experienced by both women and men and can be brought about by quite a few distinct things including poor diet plan and genetics. It is not cured with just a month or two into any treatment. It is not just a simple appearance problem. The loss of hair because of nutrient-deficient condition can be corrected with the correct diet including adequate heights of all important minerals and vitamins.
Hair can start to fall out for a lot of reasons. It can be extremely frustrating and difficult, if you want to quit losing hair, to purchase plenty of different products which do not do the job. Beautiful and healthful hair enhances your personality.
The main cause of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia. It is one of the most common problems experienced by men and women all over the world. It will probably halt the loss of hair in most of men, but the quantity of regrowth will be dependent on the person.
Humans have tried every imaginable thing to stop hair loss and regrow lost hair. They rubbed the juices of all vegetables and fruits, and extracts of every available herb. Yet, they were unable to find any effective hair growth treatment. Undoubtedly there are numerous natural and herbal treatments for hair growth, but almost all lack systematic studies. If we ever hope to grow hair by natural means, we need to study natural remedies thoroughly. And even those with proven effects need a lot of time and patience to be effective. Another thing that makes natural remedies the least preferred choice in this age of technology is their temporary results. Hairs grown through natural sources do not long last, and start shedding off as soon as the use is discontinued.
For now, we have three types of hair growth treatments that help regrow hair in a natural manner restore a thicker and fuller head of hair. These include medical treatment, laser therapy, and surgical hair restoration.
Medical Hair Growth Treatment
There are a few options available to treat this through medications. Actually, these treatments produce better results if you take them in combination with one another. Let us have a look at these FDA-approved effective hair loss medicines.
• Finasteride: Finasteride is the generic name of the probably most effective hair loss drug. This drug treats hair loss by inhibiting production of hair killing hormone DHT. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the most important hormone that signals the hair follicles to die – the most common cause of Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness. To date, inhibiting this hormone is the most effective way to stop hair loss. Besides controlling hair loss, this medication thickens fine hair, and this produces considerable effect.
• Minoxidil: It is the second most effective treatment. It is supplied in the form of a topical solution. Minoxidil is also a generic name; famous brand names of this medication include Rogaine and Hair Max. You need to apply this solution on the scalp twice a day, or as prescribed by the doctor and massage for a few minutes.
• Ketoconazole: This medication is supplied as a shampoo-like solution. This encourages hair growth by keeping the scalp clean from fungus and dandruff. You need to use this as a shampoo twice a week, and leave the leather for 3-5 minutes on your head.
No doubt researchers have studied these medications and found them effective, they are not perfect yet. First, their effectiveness varies from person to person. One may find it very effective while another may find it minimally effective. Second, the effects of all medications are temporary. You will maintain your hair as long as you continue the use of these medications. Whenever you decide to discontinue the treatment, you will lose your hair maintained by these medications. Third, like all other medication, hair loss medication is not without side effects. You must discuss its side effects before starting the treatment.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
Low-level laser is showing some measurable results to stimulate hair growth. Currently, it is regarded as convenient alternative of medication with fewer side effects. However, its effectiveness is an issue of debate. Until now, it is unable to show dramatic improvement in hair density.
Surgical Hair Growth Treatment-Hair Transplant
Hair transplant is to date the most effective treatment to date. It can restore hair on balding places in an effective and predictable manner. Hair transplant extracts healthy, balding resistant hair follicles form one area of the head and plants them to the balding areas. Not all hairs on our head are prone to balding. While the hair at the front and crown of the head are prone to hair loss, hair at the sides and back of the head are resistant to it. This procedure makes excellent use of these hair reserves on our head.
• Follicular Unit Transplant: Also known as the strip removal method, FUT excises a strip of scalp, usually from the back of the head, and dissects is to obtain required hair follicles. The wound is stitched together and the grafts obtained from the strip and implanted on the thinning or bald areas.
• Follicular Unit Extraction: FUE is a relatively newer and more advanced technique replacing the traditional strip removal method. This technique involves extracting the hair follicles directly from the scalp, without cutting and stitching the scalp. The follicles are extracted using a specially designed punch tool with diameter less than 0.1 mm. What makes FUE a more preferred choice of surgeons and patients is its ability to extract hair follicles form body areas like chest, armpits, and legs as well.
• Stem Cell FUE: Stem Cell FUE is the latest advancement in FUE hair transplant. It is the quickest, safest and the most effective hair transplant technique to date. It uses an automated punch tool for extraction of hair follicles at the fastest possible speed. It also allows hair regrowth at the donor area, thus ensuring the most natural looking results.
A hair transplant has only one limitation: the availability of donor hair. At present, there is no way to create new hair follicles; therefore, the patient must have healthy, balding resistant hair follicles somewhere on the scalp or the body. Fortunately, most of us have enough donor hair on the scalp or on the body to create a dramatic improvement in hair density.

That is the question that motivates Dr. Brett Bolton, a hair transplant surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today’s ‘gold standard’ of hair transplantation is not high enough for Dr. Bolton who has specialized in hair restoration since 1997. In the late 90’s he was fortunate enough to enter the field of hair transplant surgery during a transitional time when technology was being shaped. Outdated techniques like the large chunky hair plugs, punch grafts and flap surgeries Wabasha Minnesota were on their way out and the defining new technique of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was just cresting the horizon. Dr. Bolton’s vantage point at that time could not have been any better. He learned from the mistakes of other hair doctors as he repaired bad transplants, and he also gleaned valuable techniques from talented surgeons like the late Dr. Constantine Chambers who did wonders with old technology, especially in the crown area.
With FUT, doctors transplant small slit grafts which contain only one hair bundle. These grafts are harvested from a single strip of donor tissue and separated under a microscope. They contain a naturally occurring bundle of 1-4 hairs. The result is very natural-looking but Dr. Bolton would argue that there is not enough hair density to give patients a satisfying outcome with 1-4 hair grafts only.
In the early 2000’s, it became exceptionable for doctors to perform surgeries using anything other than FUT. However, Dr. Bolton had already developed a method of transplantation using a mixture of graft sizes that far outperformed the standard follicular unit transplantation. He was not willing to cast off a technique that was proving to be extremely successful in his practice despite pressure from peers. Instead, he refined and developed this approach and proudly applies Multi-Unit Hair Grafting , which he co-developed at PAI Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee. By using a combination of micrografts (single hair grafts), follicular units and multiple follicular unit grafts, which is a slit graft containing 2 to 3 follicular units, Dr. Bolton gives patients 2-3 times the density compared to other doctors who use FUT only.
Some of Dr. Bolton’s peers suggest in error that multi-unit grafts are old style hair plugs. These new style slit grafts are slightly larger than standard follicular units. Separated under a microscope just like follicular units, these multi-unit grafts are not harvested with a punch biopsy instrument. This insures hardiness of the delicate hair follicles and surrounding tissue. They are never used in the frontal hairline and are strategically placed throughout the vertex and crown to make the most of density. This style of transplantation is so unique, Dr. Bolton cannot even charge by the graft because it simply doesn’t translate. Instead, he charges by hair volume. When compared to competitors, hair for hair, Dr. Bolton’s surgery is the best value in the industry.

Some Common Q & A’s
What Is The Best Solution To Replacement Of Falling Hair?
Problems Of Falling Hair. Need To Find The Best Way To Prevent Hair Fall And Replacement If Possible.
This may answer your question(s). PLEASE READ THIS FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR HAIR & WHOEVER ELSE IS INTERESTED:
According to the The Home Remedies Handbook (by the editors of Consumer Guide, "It's normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. That's generally not a problem, since the typical head of hair has about 100,000 hairs. It's simply part of shedding phase that all hair goes through......."
"The most common cause of hair loss for both men and women is pattern balding. In men, this hereditary condition affects the front and/or top of the head. Pattern hair loss in women isn't generally as severe as it is in men, and it's more diffuse, with the thinnest patches of hair usually at the top of the head....While there is no cure for pattern balding, ther are treatments available."
6 Ways to Fight Hair Loss:
1) Stay healthy
(Easier said than done sometimes, but a whole host of diseases may have the unfortunate result of causing hair loss....Illnesses as diverse as measles, thyroid disease, lupus, pneumonia, anemia, diabetes, syphilis, polycystic ovaries, and tumors on the adrenal gland may all produce hair loss.)
2) Watch your medications (Literally hundreds of different medications can cause hair loss. Chemotherapeutic drugs certainly affect the hair but the list of offenders also includes some birth control pills, high blood pressure medications, cerain types of steroids, diuretics, antidepressants, and even aspirin when taken chronically. Check with your doctor to see if the medications you are taking are associated with hair loss and whether there are alternative medications available. However, do not stop taking any prescription medication without first talking to your doctor about it.)
3) Eat a balanced diet (People who eat a very-low-protein or iron-deficient diet run the risk of shedding more than normal amounts of hair....On the other hand, going overboard with certain vitamins can harm hair, too. Taking vitamin A or D in excess can cause hair loss. People who are taking the so called megavitamin regime shoud be very careful.)
4) Keep calm (Severe stress or a traumatic event like a death in the family can bring about heavy shedding of the hair. But moderate stress can leave its mark on your maine as well. Try to find a way to cope with stress and minimize its effects on your health and your hair. Do whatever works for you, whether it's exercising, practicing meditation or some form of relaxation technique, or making time for a hobby.)
5) Don't overprocess or overstyle your hair (We do many things to our hair to make it look beautiful, but some of them may not be good for our tresses. Cornrowing, tight braiding, bleaching, teasing, chemically straightening, and using hot rollers or hot combs can all cause hair breakage. Whoever told us women to brush our hair 100x a night gave us the worst possible advice. If you can't forgo the styling and processing altgother, at least try to space them out a bit and give your hair a break from these treatments whenever possible.)
6) Check out your supplements (Selenium supplements taken in excess and foreign herbs that contain heavy metals can cause hair loss. If you are taking any such supplement and notice hair loss, discontinue the supplement and see your doctor to be sure that the supplement has not caused other complications that may not be as readily apparent as the hair loss.)
"There are medical treatments to help restore lost or thinning hair. The prescription drug minoxidil, sold under the brand name Rogaine, is currently the only medication on the market for treating hair loss. It grows hair in about 20 to 25 percent of those who use it. Minoxidil is a clear solution that you apply to your scalp 2x daily. The medication generally has to be used for at least 4mths before any signs of new growth occur (if new growth occurs at all), and it has to be continued for as long as you want to retain the new hair. In other words, once you stop using minoxidil, you will most likely lose the new hair. Researchers are developing new drugs that may be combined with minoxidil to give an enhanced effect, says Mary Sawaya, M.D., Ph.D. If you would like to know more about minoxidil, contact your doctor. Your other option is a hair transplant. Often, a hair transplant can be done in a doctor's office under local anesthesia. These procedures are usually quite successful."
Thank you for reading this. I hope this will help you take good care of yourself and your hair.
What Are The Quickest And Most Effective Treatments For Hair Loss (Alopecia) In 15 Year Old?
I will relegate my response to the presumption that you are, first of all, a male, and second, experiencing common pattern hair loss aka androgenetic alopecia (AGA). For anyone who does not fit these two conditions, the following advice may not apply.
AGA is by far the most widespread form of hair loss affecting more than 95% of those who experience loss of hair. It is axiomatic that the younger a person is when they begin losing hair the more severe the degree of loss will be. Until recently, few safe and efficacious options of any kind were available.
In the past few years a number of options have been tested and made available. Two choices will be discussed in this response. The first is pharmacotherapy (Rx). The second is non-drug, botanically-based.
The Rx options for a man consist of basically three choices. The first, topical minoxidil (Rogaine™), is applied directly to the thinning scalp once or twice daily. Published studies show that the use of this drug can arrest, or in some cases reverse thinning hair --- however the specific mechanism of action by which minoxidil affects hair growth remains undetermined.
Observed side effects of oral minoxidil include pericardial effusion, occasionally progressing to tamponade, and angina pectoris may be exacerbated. In experimental animals, minoxidil caused several kinds of myocardial lesions as well as other adverse cardiac effects. Side effects with topical minoxidil are typically noted to be less severe but negative side effects are certainly not unknown.
The next drug available to treat pattern hair loss is oral finasteride (1 mg. Propecia™). Finasteride, a type II 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor has also demonstrated efficacy in blinded clinical trials. In a 5-year study of men with mild to moderate hair loss, 48% of those treated with Propecia (finasteride 1mg) experienced some regrowth of hair, and a further 42% reported no further loss.
Side effects reported with finasteride include a change in prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels, feminizing birth defects, impotence, decreased libido, gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) and others.
Dutasteride, a dual 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor was recently approved for the treatment in men of pattern hair loss. Unlike finasteride, dutasteride blocks both known isoforms of 5 alpha-reductase; type I & type II. Some studies suggest that dutasteride outperforms finasteride in preventing hair loss.
Known side effects of dutasteride are similar to those observed with finasteride. These include impotence, decreased libido, ejaculation disorders, gynecomastia and other potential issues.
Recently, a novel approach to the problem has been the administration of non-drug based botanically-derived therapy. The concept for this has come from the use of botanicals to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a disorder with a somewhat similar metabolic chain of events to pattern hair loss.
Several non-drug treatment choices have become available in the past few years. Although most naturally derived hair loss treatments advertise a high safety profile --- particularly when compared against pharmacotherapy, few are supported with published clinical research. This is highly relevant inasmuch as without objective evidence it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to assess the potential utility of a given product.
To sum up, particularly for a young person (age 15) who is beginning to experience hair loss, a reasoned approach, of balancing known clinical utility against potential negative side effect, must be employed. Pharmacotherapy offers putative benefit but, especially for a young person, may exhibit unreasonable potential risk. Non-drug based therapies offer the promise of safer clinical results but must be scrutinized to focus on those that truly back their claims with empirical data.
The best resource I can suggest to anyone concerned about hair loss is to enlist the aid of one's primary care provider because this is, presumably, an informed advocate who has the patient's best interests in mind.

Do Hair Transplants Work If Your Hair Loss Is Severe?
I'Ve Asked The Question Before Wether They Work And The General Opinion From People Was Yes However I Would Like To Know If They Work If Some Is Starting To Become Truly Bald, Im Receding Quite Noticeably And Thinning All Over Now And My Main Concern Is That My Hair Loss Is Going To Be Irepairable By The Time I Can Actually Afford A Hair Transplant (Which If Ends Up Being The Case I Will Be Majorly Depressed) Any Help And Information Would Be Great.
Surgical hair restoration or replacement is a fairly simple and safe procedure. It is surgery though, so finding a qualified doctor and being aware of the risks, including infection are important to achieving success.

London: Men should avoid having hair transplants until they are closer to the age of 30, a leading surgeon has warned.
Doctor Bessam Farjo told Newsbeat some clinics are not doing enough to warn under-30s about the long-term risks.
He said that while the publicity in celebrities like Wayne Rooney getting the procedure is making it more popular, it is not for everyone.
“When a celebrity comes out with it, you only hear the good things,” the BBC quoted him as saying.
“You don`t hear the cautions or the potential complications.”
He says that if you get surgery too young, it can look worse than it did in the first place.“If you have the surgery too early and you go bald, you don`t have enough hair to keep chasing the hair loss,” he said.
“You can end up with isolated patches of hair. You could end up with hairy temples and a bald forehead which isn`t pretty but is also hard to fix.”
Google hair transplants gone wrong. About 5,980,000 results. 12-11.

The effort has helped turn the company into a nationwide leader in the field of hair restoration, with annual sales of more than $100 million. The company spent about $200000 training Dr. Yates, who had no experience with hair transplants . . .
Example who had a strip hair transplant done:
"i had my strip hair transplant done 6 months ago, and the area they had stripped and stiched back on still hurts when i touch or when i lay back can someone with strip hair transplant recomment a cure for the wound, anyone oil or cream so it could heal and not hurt.thanks a ton".
If your hair loss is genetics: Prince William, Prince Philip, Prince Charles for example . . .Dr. Asim Shahmalak, from Crown Clinic in the U.K., says the only way the prince can restore a reasonable amount of hair density to his head is through a procedure in which 3,000 to 4,000 hair grafts are taken from the back of the scalp and moved to the top of the head. This procedure isn’t available through the British National Health Service, and costs around $1,600 a year.
But most blokes don’t realise there are many different types of transplant to choose from – some using your own hair while others using donor hair – and various procedures can set you back anything from £4,000 to £30,000.
Does Rogaine Really Work ? Do You Know Of Anyone That Used Rogaine And You Could See Some Noticable Regrowth?
Of Hair ? If Not Rogaine, Are There Any Other Hair Replacements Or Treatments That Work ?????
I was browsing the yahoo answers on Rogaine, and read that your body becomes dependant on the active ingredient to grow hair, and is unable to stimulate hair growth on its own after prolonged use. This seems to be true, as using this product does not guarantee permanent regrowth of hair unless you continue to apply it for as long as you want hair growth.
Rogaine's active ingredient was at first used as a vasodilator to treat high blood pressure... researchers discovered by chance that it had alternate function in stimulating hair growth and also reversing baldness.
In some cases Rogaine has been known to increase hair loss after initial use! There are a variety negative side effects that can be found easily using wikipedia (see sources) - but it would be best for you to consult a physician before using the drug, as you may have other health conditions which may be implicated in your use of Rogaine! Best of luck... let us know how you do
Are There Any Turner Syndrome Adult Women Out There That Have Issues With Hormone Replacement And Hair Loss? ?
My Daughter Is 22 And Is Losing Her Hair. We Think It Has To Do With Turners And Hormones. Her Thyroid Is Fine, With Medication. I Would Really Like To Chat With An Adult Turner Syndrome Women.
my daughter is 12yr old and has TS. she's got some hair loss. she has 1 patch about 5cms by 3cms and another 1cm round patch. She's been diagnosed with alopicia areata. She saw a dermatologist 3 weeks ago and has started on a steroid lotion to see if it helps.
Hair loss is a bit more common in women with TS although still it does not happen too often and is very rare in children with TS. With my daughter they are thinking it's her immune system attacking the hair follicles.
My daughters thyroid function is fine, it always has been she takes no medication for that. She started estrogen treatment about 8 months ago, oxandralone aged 8yrs and growth hormone aged 4 years. The alopicia started about 2 yrs ago but the hair grew back after 6 months, then about 1 yr ago came back in the same place but got bigger and showed no signs of coming back.
Luckily she has really thick hair so the patches are not seen, she can't have her hair in 2 pony tails or french braids though as it can be seen then. but down or 1 pony tail and it's not seen..She had a blood test done with her last yearly blood tests to see if there was any reason for the loss but all tests came back normal. I guess we will just have to wait and see if the hair comes back or not
Future Hair Loss Restoration And How Effective Is Hair Transplant Surgery?

my teacher just explained the transplant our class and it has good results depending on you health, such as stress in your life and things of that sort, but the hair is taken from the occipital area of the head (around the sides and back nape area) which is where hair will always grow for men, the hair growth takes about 4 months and she said the new transplanted hair falls out and regrows permanently. Lots of famous men have it done and you can't even tell.
