Acupuncture Therapy For Hair Regrowth - Can It Really Help?

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical technique. The procedure helps return the body’s energy flow to a balanced state as ancient Chinese believed that having stable energy levels can take care of a wide variety of ailments. Though it is widely popular, not many know that acupuncture can be even utilized to treat hair loss conditions. Let us have a glimpse of how effective acupuncture is in treating hair loss.

How can acupuncture help with hair loss?
Hair loss is a condition that commonly occurs due to genetics, followed by certain medications that a person takes in his lifetime. Acupuncture believes that hair is associated and interconnected with other vital parts of the human body such as internal organs and blood. The needles are used to puncture the key points of the head to improve blood circulation and balance of energy. As a result, acupuncture helps in reducing the inflammation of the scalp. This, in turn, can make the hair follicles produce new hair again, thereby, resulting in a healthy hair growth.

The treatment also requires the usage of other herbal medications and ointments. Sometimes a hot towel bath is used for reaping the maximum benefits. In spite of the medical benefits, not many people chose this form of treatment as some people are slightly averse to having their head riddled with needles, even when they are extremely safe. Also, acupuncture is a long-term treatment, and the visible results take time to appear. It requires enormous patience by a person who is undergoing the treatment. But almost all individuals who have undergone this procedure have vouched for it, and they have unanimously approved that using acupuncture has improved their hair growth. It is extremely advisable to consult with a dermatologist before undergoing any procedure, and the same can be said for acupuncture too.

Benefits of using acupuncture

  • One of the biggest advantages of following acupuncture is that it is extremely safe and there are no side effects.
  • There is neither any usage of chemicals that affect the skin nor any surgical treatments in acupuncture.
  • Another very important reason for using acupuncture is that it can be very cost effective against other known methods of treating hair loss.

With so many benefits and a high success rate, using acupuncture in the treatment of hair loss can be worth giving a shot.
