Contrary to popular opinion, there is something you can do about your hair loss. An overblown and tragic acceptance of hair loss is one of the most prevalent mistaken attitudes in our society. If you read on you’ll find that most hair loss is treatable, affordable and effective.
Many men and women have contacted our help desk asking if our products can stop them from going bald after they’ve noticed thinning or hairline recession. This is the totally wrong attitude and mindset to have! Although there is no known scientific solution to the problem of balding, most individuals who notice hair loss incorrectly jump to the thought ‘I’m doomed’.
Many men especially have accepted the mistaken notion that hair loss is an irreversible and aesthetically fatal time bomb which must be accepted with solemnity and stoic dread. ‘Just face it, John, you’re losing your hair like your father and grandfather did, there’s nothing you can do’.
But if you’ve read anything we’ve written or media we’ve disseminated, you’ll know that there are strong hair restoration treatment options for everyone on the Norwood balding scale – from beginning hair loss to almost completely bald.
So, what are the scientifically backed, tested and tried hair restoration options?
For individuals just noticing increased hair shedding or hairline recession in the last six months to a year, we strongly and enthusiastically recommend a mixture of powerful and easy to use preventative topical treatments like Rogaine and groMD shampoo/conditioner, while paired with our Follicle Activator Spray. The combination of Minoxidil (Rogaine) and DHT blocking formula (groMD) will go beyond restoring and strengthening your thinning hair, but it will also slow the progression of hair loss and stimulate follicles prematurely falling out.
A step above topical treatments, but still non-surgical, is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient’s body and processing it in a centrifuge in order to extract a rich plasma serum. This serum is then injected into the recipient site on the top of the scalp. PRP is loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis, localized cell growth and reduction of inflammation.
There are many women who have benefited from such treatments due to countless years of wearing hair extensions, wigs, or extremely tight ponytails pulling on the scalp which eventually leads to scarring of the hair follicles in a form of (potentially permanent) hair loss called Traction Alopecia.
Since women are traditionally less ideal candidates than men for full hair transplant surgery, given their diffuse hair thinning patterns, PRP therapy has become one of the safest, most effective and sought after hair-loss treatments on the market.
Finally, a step above treatments like platelet-rich plasma therapy, specialized hair shampoo and minoxidil is hair restoration surgery. Hair transplant surgery involves taking strong hairs from the back and side of the head and filling in the thinning and balding areas. Make sure you find an experienced and reputable hair restoration specialist. A much more permanent solution to hair loss, hair transplants can carefully recreate your hairline to look natural and full. The gold standard is minimally invasive follicular unit extraction, or FUE surgery, which individually fixes fine and thin hairs in the proper angle, depth and direction to maximize volume and sleekness.
To return to what we said at the beginning: hair loss is optional! There are real and substantial hair restoration options for men and women suffering from hair loss of any degree and type.
