What You Need to Know About 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 Chatham Virginia 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 Are Hair Plugs... Ya Know?
I Know It'S Like Fake Hair, But How Do You Put It In.... Does It Hurt.
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that involves moving skin containing hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site).
You'd probably be sedated, so pain would not be an issue.
Will Planting Chia Pet Seeds On My Dome Save Me Money From Having To Go The Hair Care For Men Or Surgery?
This way is more expensive than you can imagine. Plowing, planting, fertilizing and harvesting. I mean, come on, rubbing cow manure into your head every night just to get a lush crop isn't the way to go.

European Hair Institute Announces the Release of a Revolutionary New Technology in Men’s Hair Replacement

This press release is about: institute, hair, european, replacement, technology, system, wearing, pfenning, non-surgical, transparent, hairpiece
Preview by EUROPEAN HAIR INSTITUTE 2005-01-16, EUROPEAN HAIR INSTITUTE - Men suffering from hair loss can know get a non-surgical solution so life like and natural, no one will be able to notice.Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2005 -- European Hair Institute has developed a hair replacement system so natural it is virtually undetectable. This system is so unique it raises the bar for the whole industry and will forever change the perception of wearing a hairpiece. Injecting hair into an ultra thin transparent polymer base with micro pore technology creates the system. The advantages are; the thin transparent base, which allows the scalp to be visible, and injecting hair eliminating any tell tale knots. The result is a breathable lightweight hair system, which provides the lifelike appearance of hair growing naturally from the scalp. Since the base is so thin the edge cannot be felt, a huge advancement over traditional hairpieces.
Dale Pfenning, president of European Hair Institute states “No longer do men have to be concerned about wearing a hairpiece and having someone notice. Unlike most companies that only provide marketing hype, this product consistently exceeds customer expectations. I invite all interested parties to come by and see the product for yourselves.”
European Hair Institute has been servicing the hair replacement industry for over ten years and is the premier supplier of solutions for male pattern baldness. Bob, a client of European Hair Institute says; “With the systems provided by Dale and his staff, the only way someone will know you are wearing a system is if you decide to tell them. I’m single and dating and never felt comfortable letting a woman run her fingers through my hair until I began wearing these systems.”
Men suffering from male pattern baldness who want to try this latest technology, should contact Dale Pfenning at European Hair Institute.
European Hair Institute has been involved in the non-surgical hair replacement business since 1991. They are headquartered in Orange County, California. European Hair Institute provides a variety of different hair replacement solutions for men and women.

I'M Going Bald! What Is The Best Hair Regrowth/Hair Loss Product/Treatment? For Men?
I Have A Receding Hairline And I Don'T Know What To Do! My Hair'S Falling Out..
You need to use a hair treatment like provillus. I've been on it for 5 weeks and i must say there is a major improvement in my part. It has all the vitamins your hair needs and much more.I've used it and I had very good results.Provillus contains the only FDA-approved topical ingredient clinically proven to re grow hair.
I am sure this product will be worth your time for a second look since your money would be going into the right hands. In a survey conducted, 18 out of 20 people experienced a drastic change after using this product. None experienced any side effects.
Provillus offers the best possible and perennial solution for this problem for both men and women. One of the best parts of the provillus treatment is that it uses natural ingredients. This has accounted for its rising popularity. Thus it leaves the other products behind in this context, since most of the products contain harmful chemicals.
Provillus basically functions by removing the main cause of hair loss i.e. DHT. DHT damages the hair follicles and is responsible for the thinning of hair. It also restricts the re-growth of new hair. Provillus prevents its formation and it also promotes the growth of the new hair.
I use it once a day every evening. The area which i was balding in was the top middle portion of my head, not sure why cause no one in my family is loosing hair accept me so its not genetic. I have regrowth in that area, few strands are coming up and my wife says its so much better than it was before.
Well you might be aware that it is available for both men and women. The saw palmetto extract is basically present in the men's version whereas a combination of acids is present in the female version. Thus in addition to the solution of problem of hair loss it also nourishes hair.
Till now Provillus has been getting positive feedbacks so you needn't worry and instead be assured. It offers the its users complete satisfaction.
If you would like more information on what a natural hair re-growth product can do for you. I urge you to visit the url in the source box below.
What Is The Reputation Of Bosley Hair Transplants? Are They Ethical And Follow Through On What They Promise?
I Have A Friend Who Went To Downtown Chicago And Is Intent On Getting A Hair Transplant. He Is Bald.
What Can They Really Do For Him Outside Of Taking Thousands Of Dollars?
He Thinks Women Are Going To Up To Him Afterwards And Gush Or At Least Not Be Frightened Of His &Quot;Big, Bald Head&Quot;.
He should consult with other plastic surgeons/dermatologists who do hair transplants. They can be independent and don't have to be associated with well marketed transplant centers like Bosley and Alvi Armani. A major issue is whether the hair that is going to be transplanted is harvested by means of strip extraction surgery or the newer and much less invasive FUE(follicular unit extraction.) If he is completely bald on top, it is going to costs tens of thousands and may not look very full. If he is quite young he might want to wait a while, hopefully, in a few years, research in hair cloning and multiplication will make a full head of hair possible for any guy throughout his life.
After Having Hair Transplant, Does The Area Where The Hair Was Transplanted From Regrow?
If The Hair Was Transplanted From The Sides, Does It Become Less Dense, Or Does New Hair Grow
I think you need to see what actually happens! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaz7MagA... This is the original form of hair transplantation and ask you can see is pretty gory.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp7RFbjS... This is the newer method you would probably prefer so make sure you ask for a FUE procedure rather than a FUT procedure.
The follicles that are transplanted do not regrow. If the FUE procedure is used then the number of follicles removed does not thin the hair in that area.
Hair Loss In Women With Pcos?
Im Suffering With Pcos And Within The Last Month I Have Started Experiencing Some Very Noticable Hair Loss And I Wanted To Know What I Can Do To Help Stop Or Slow This Down?
I Recently Purrchased The Saw Palmetto Capsulse And Have Been Taking Them Daily For About Three Days And Haven Noticed A Difference. Has Anyone Tried Saw Palmetto If So Didn It Work And How Much Do I Need To Take And How Long Until I See Results? Any Other Ways I Can Help Hair Loss? Please Help My Docter Just Tells Me To Lose Weight And There Is Nothng Else She Can Do.
You will need to take Saw Palmetto for at least 3 months before you see any difference, and that in itself won't be enough. Treat your PCOS, by exercising a lot, eating well, de-stressing, at the same time you can address your hair loss with various supplements (but none of them will perform miracles!) and even topical solutions, such as progesterone (on the scalp) and minoxidil, although minoxidil may affect you body hair a little, unfortunately.
Are People That Have Done A Hair Transplant Surgery Happy With The Results?
I Am A Guy, About 30 Years Old And I Am Not Completely Bald But Have Lost Some Hair On Top Of My Head.
I Am Planning To Do A Hair Transplant Surgery Where They Take A Strip From The Back Of My Head Which Contains About 2600 Grafts And Plant On Different Places On Top Of My Head.
I Have Booked The Surgery But Still A Little Hesitant.
I Want To Hear Stories Of People That Have Done The Surgery And What They Think About The Results Afterwards.
I strongly suggest that you search the internet under FUE(follicular unit extraction) and the wood's technique before deciding which harvesting method, FUE or Strip Extraction Surgery, is better for you. FUE is a newer and less invasive but somewhat more costly harvesting method that does not involve cutting with scalpels, staples, stitches and only a topical anesthetic is used. Also, the number of strip extractions can be limited by scalp tightness. FUE allows a more even density between the grafted and harvested areas because the harvested area is evenly thinned. Current research is along two lines: 1) propagating hair in the lab identical to the hair on the back and sides that can be transplanted and 2) injecting stem cells from the hair on the back and sides to rejuvenate the hairs on top that have thinned to fine thin vellus hairs so that they once again produce robust terminal hairs.
