Different people have different expectations from Hair loss treatment. Many people think that Hair Transplant means medical treatment & yet another think that it is same as putting a wig. As a Hair Restoration physician it is our duty to guide you about the complete range of treatments for hair loss:
Firstly , it should be understood that hair transplantation is an out-patient, surgical procedure performed by licensed surgeons and experienced team, that move individual hair follicles from a part of your body, known as the 'donor site', and implanting it on a balding part of your body, which is the 'recipient site'. We usually take hair follicles from back of the head , also known as "Occipital region" and transfer it to the top of your head (Bald area).
This procedure is performed under a local anesthesia and is minimally invasive. The duration of surgery may vary from 4-8 hours depending on the number of grafts to be transplanted.
Hair actually grows in a group of one to four hairs, known as follicular unit.
In hair transplant we transplant these follicular units by either FUE or FUT. This state-of-the-art transplantation technique achieves a natural appearance, one that looks identical to how your hairs used to look. This is what we're known for around the world and why our hair loss treatment for men and women is considered by many experts to be the best around.
Aside from surgical hair transplantation, for those that are looking for a shorter term hair loss remedy, there are three main medically-approved options, but they aren't as effective as our surgical hair transplant procedures for men and women:
Oral Medication (Finasteride)
This medication only works for men. It has received approval from the FDA to treat male pattern hair loss, but it's not received approval for women's use.
The medication's effectiveness depends upon the type of hair loss and its location. Finasteride does not work well on receding hairlines. Also, men who are already "shiny bald" are unlikely to have positive results because the hair follicles may not be salvageable. Men who have moderate thinning in the back or top of the head have a better chance of obtaining some visible benefit, but only for as long as they continue taking the medication.
Topical Hair Solution (Minoxidil)
This solution works for both men and women. The only direct hair growth stimulator currently FDA-approved for hair loss is topical minoxidil. It comes under common names such as Mintop lotion or Amexidil sprays. It works to some degree in most patients. A 5 percent solution, foam and spray have been approved for men and a 2 percent solution for women and men. Using the drug is simple: twice a day you apply a liquid or foam to your scalp.
The one drawback is that if you stop using the treatment, any benefits achieved from this particular hair loss treatment for men will eventually be lost. You have to stay with it or your hair will revert to its previous loss pattern.
Laser Therapy (igrow)
The laser comb or Laser cap is the first and only home-use medical laser device that has been clinically proven and FDA cleared, for men and women, to stimulate your scalp and promote hair growth. The device is a hand-held instrument that you'll need to use for 10-15 minutes a day, three times a week. It's cordless and has easy-to- use features providing the convenience of a hair restoration for men program in your own home.
This is the most effective way to restore hair loss in the advanced stages of balding for both men and women. Hair transplant helps when receding hairlines or thinning hair has become an issue. For those suffering from genetic hair loss, such as male and female pattern baldness, other hair loss prevention treatments might slow down the hair loss but they cannot combat it entirely. In fact, of all the hair loss remedies available out there, hair transplantation is the only known solution to permanently restore hair. Success rates may vary from an individual to another, but hair transplantation is most often the final option for many suffering from hair loss.
