How do I sort through all the options and language when researching hair loss?
This is the question we will help you answer over the next three weeks.
The first option to discuss is nutraceuticals, minoxidil, propecia, low level laser therapy or any combination of these.
The decision to use a treatment program to address your hair loss problem is a starting point. Treatment is most effective with young men in the early stages of hair loss. Many women come into a treatment program wanting to promote a fuller looking head of hair, while most men want to slow the balding process. The important thing to remember about using a treatment program is that you cannot grow hair where there is not a hair follicle. Treatment is used when trying to maintain hair or give the appearance of more hair, not as a way to grow nonexistent hair back. A treatment program is often used as a way to buy more time in preserving your hair until you are ready for hair replacement. Treatment is recommended in conjunction with hair transplantation to preserve existing growing hair. This helps the transplant look more natural.
It is important to remember that the choice you make in treating your hair loss has to align with the expectation you have as to how much hair you want in the end.
