hair loss treatment- what options do you have
by Peter Crump
Male hair loss treatments are big business.
That is because for many men, losing their hair as they age
is a devastating experience. It can happen at any age following
puberty and has a number of causes. For these reasons there
are huge numbers of men looking for an effective male hair loss
treatment. If you are looking for a male hair loss treatment
what options do you have?
The first thing you should do before even considering
buying a male hair loss treatment is to consult your doctor.
A doctor can ask all the necessary questions to try and determine
the cause of your hair loss. There are many causes of male hair
loss which are reversible and not a cause for worry. And pin-pointing
these causes is the first step before even considering any form
of male hair loss treatment.
For example there are both medical conditions and medical treatments
which can cause hair loss. Often when the medical condition
is treated the hair can grow back or when the medical treatment
is stopped the hair can grow back. In both cases the use of
any form of male hair loss treatment is unnecessary.However
it is true that the vast majority of cases of male hair loss
are caused by hereditary factors - male pattern baldness.
Currently there is no prevention for male pattern baldness.
Men who are diagnosed with this condition may need to consider
some form of male hair loss treatment .However there are some
preliminary decisions to make. How concerned are you about losing
your hair? There are large numbers of men who lose their hair
and are not sufficiently concerned to seek treatment. And baldness
is almost a fashion now. This may have started with Yul Brinner,
but a bald head makes a statement.And how prepared are you for
the downside of using various forms of male hair loss treatments?
They can be invasive, expensive, impermanent and for many men
just do not work.Notwithstanding, there are many men who still
want to find methods of replacing their hair. And there are
male hair loss treatments which work, but not for everyone.The
effective male hair loss treatments can be broken down into
Firstly there are the topical applications. There is minoxidil,
which is known by various trade names. It is applied directly
to the scalp, and slows hair loss or promotes hair growth in
some, but not all men.
There is also finasteride which is taken as a tablet and also
has an effect on slowing hair loss and promoting hair growth
in some but not all men.It should be understood that these results
only continue as long as the product is used and so many question
whether they are a really effective male hair loss treatment
when it is realised that to continue to receive the benefits
it is necessary to continue on the product indefinitely.
Then there are the surgical methods. They are all a form of
plastic surgery. You can opt for hair transplant surgery where
individual hairs are taken from the other parts of the head
and replanted onto the affected areas. Or scalp reduction which
is a method of taking out a small part of the affected area,
or flap surgery which takes an area of scalp with good hair
growth and over time stretches it to take over from areas which
are affected by the hair loss.
All are effective male hair loss treatments when done correctly
but are not suitable for all men. And they are usually expensive.So,
if you are suffering from male hair loss, see you doctor and
find out the cause. Next, spend some time thinking about how
prepared you are to live with it. And for those who are sufficiently
motivated to do something about it find out more about effective
male hair loss treatments. They do exist, they do work, but
not for everyone.
