Are you suffering from hair loss? If yes, you are not alone because it’s nothing out of ordinary. In fact, men’s hair loss has become a common problem. 1 out of 4 – that’s an average number of men, start losing their hair before the age of 30. Losing hair can be very stressful and most of the times it affects relationships, social life, and general confidence.
Ways to Fight Men’s Hair Loss
Every man, suffering from hair loss, wants to regrow hair quickly but being able to stimulate hair regrowth would be equivalent to finding gold dust for many men. However, effective results can be achieved by selecting the best suitable hair loss treatment. Here we will discuss some popular and effective ways to fight men’s hair loss.
Hair loss treatments for men that actually work
Advancement in the field of cosmetic surgery has opened the door for quick and easy hair regrowth. There are many treatment options for hair restoration from non-surgical, oral and topical medications to surgical methods. These treatments are discussed below:
Finasteride (commonly referred to as Propecia)
You most likely have heard of Propecia or finasteride. It is a topical medication that is applied on the scalp to stimulate hair growth and treats male pattern baldness. It works by inhibiting 5-alpha reductase – an enzyme that regulates the production of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT shrinks hair follicles and makes them fall out, resulting in hair thinning, which ultimately leads to male pattern baldness. Finasteride decreases the concentrations of DHT and stimulates healthy growth of hair. Men may experience hair regrowth within 3 months, but it may take up to a year.
Minoxidil (commonly referred to as Rogaine)
Minoxidil is an oral medication. It stimulates hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, which increases follicular size and diameter of the hair shaft leading to prolonged hair growth. Minoxidil does nothing for reducing DHT production. Its results begin to show anywhere between 2 to 6 months.
ACell/PRP hair loss therapy
ACell/PRP therapy is the latest, non-surgical hair restoration treatment, which is becoming significantly popular. It is the best alternative to surgical hair transplant and is much more effective than topical and oral medications. The procedure involves injecting a mixture of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and ACell’s Matristem into the areas having less hair density. During the procedure, a blood sample is taken from a patient’s body and is centrifuged to separate platelets and growth factors. This sample is then mixed with ACell’s Matristem and injected in the scalp. The procedure is usually performed in the early stages of balding or when there are a lot of miniaturized hair follicles on the scalp.
If you have already gone bald and you want an effective solution, hair transplant surgery may be an ideal option for you. Hair transplant surgery involves taking hair follicles from areas of scalp having denser hair and transplanting them to bald areas. Although it is a surgical procedure, it can be performed using various techniques and the latest techniques are far less invasive as compared to traditional hair transplant procedures. It is the most effective hair restoration treatment that gives permanent results.
