Dear Lybrate user, hair loss happens as a result of various factors. So, minoxidil solution and foam are used to help hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is not used for baldness at the front of the scalp or receding hairline in men. The foam and 2 percent minoxidil solution is also used to help hair growth in women with thinning hair. We usually deal with such issues by administering hair fast medical treatment. Sometimes, we also adopt other treatment methods depending on the hair type, condition, and other parameters. Hair is very sensitive in nature. Hence, to derive the right treatment, we are inviting you to avail the video consultation assistance. It will help you to discuss this kind of issue with one of our senior doctors very conveniently.

Advantages Of Hair Transplant Surgery!

Advantages Of Hair Transplant Surgery!

Hair transplantation surgery is a procedure where the hair follicles are taken from a donor site (usually the side or back of the head) and implanted on the recipient site that is on the area of baldness. This is a common treatment for men with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) where the hair follicles reduce due to the influence of androgenic hormones. It can also help women with female pattern baldness.

Many people have reservations about the procedure but hair transplantation comes with a number of advantages, such as:

1. Natural growth after surgery

The biggest and most obvious benefit of hair transplantation is that it improves your physical appearance and eliminates the problem of balding completely. This is because the implanted hair follicles continue their natural growth process after they have been transplanted. So, your hair does not look artificial.

Premature bald spots often result in low self-esteem and self-confidence issues which can be effectively addressed by the surgery.

2. Uniform distribution of hair follicles

Hair transplantation with latest techniques gives natural distribution of hair and proper coverage of bald areas

3. Easy procedure and no side effects

The operation is done under local anaesthesia . You will feel no pain throughout the procedure. Very comfortable procedure and you will be awake throughout the procedure. This surgery is done at the level of skin and this is not related to the brain. There is no side effects of this surgery. Today, the surgeons mostly use micro grafts which are placed in such a way that all bald spots are covered with minimal effort.

4. One time procedure

Hair transplantation is the only permanent solution of baldness. No medical treatment for baldness is permanent. Once the hair transplantation has been done, it lasts a lifetime. .Since the grafts are made of your own hair, they continue to grow naturally throughout your lifetime allowing you to cut or style your hair as you wish.

Non-Surgical Hair Replacement - Know More!

Non-Surgical Hair Replacement - Know More!

Androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition that causes hair loss which is a problem being faced by millions of men and women. The great news is that there is a non-surgical hair replacement system that is designed to cover up the bald spots. Hairpieces are used as hair replacement systems but these are very different from the traditional toupees that are seen in old comedy flicks. Do you remember the funny actor who has his toupee fall off into the soup he was eating or whose hairpiece is left behind because it stuck on something? Those were the days when this embarrassment could also happen in real life, but today, if you want to cover up your baldness, you can get coverage back in a great way.

Several hair replacement options are available for you and the most important thing to do now is choose the one that best suits your condition and budget. If you are just starting your search, it is better to get as many opinions and as much information as possible about these hair systems so you can have a better understanding of the available options for you.

A popular method for hair restoration used today is hair replacement surgery. This is an effective method but there are factors that can prevent you from having this procedure. The first thing you would be concerned about is its cost. On average, a hair transplant procedure can cost more than $20,000 which is really a large amount of money, especially for an average person. Each hair implant is priced between $3 and $8 and the usual number of hair implants that you might need for your bald spot is between 1000 and 3000 units. A cheaper method is non-surgical hair replacement.

Non-surgical hair replacement systems are designed to give you a covering on your head that is composed of natural or artificial hairs bonded into a base material. You have a lot of options for this treatment method and thus you can see a significant difference in the cost of hair replacement.

Some of the factors that you have to consider when you plan to have a balding treatment for men are how great the hairs of the replacement system exactly matches the density, color, and texture of your own. Density refers to the number of hair of units per square centimeter that you have in your present hair. If this number is matched well, your new hair replacement well blend well with your existing hair. You would not want to look ridiculous by having thick hair on the top of your head and a less dense hair on its sides.

The color and texture are the other factors that should be taken into consideration since you want your new hair to look exactly like what you already have. You should take note also of the curls that you already have and the thickness of the shafts. You would not want to wear your new piece if your head has curly hair on the sides but is straight on top.

Wear-ability is another factor that should be covered when choosing one of these products. The system must be made of a material that will let the scalp freely breath. Building up a sweat under your hairpiece is unhygienic and can cause an unpleasant smell. The base material should be made of light materials so it remains unnoticeable and undetectable even if touched. You have the best hair system if others can't tell that you are wearing a hairpiece even by touching your scalp.

Lastly, make sure that the hairline is still intact so that you will still be able to comb your hair straight back and still have a hairline looks very natural. The hair replacement system should not limit its wearer to only some hairstyles but rather he should be able to wear it whichever way he wants.

Hairpieces have existed for a long time in the form of toupees. Unfortunately, they did not look very natural and also had a tendency to fall off. As the years passed, these products were improved up to the point that today they seem like natural hair and it is one of the best ways for someone to cope with hair loss. Non-surgical hair replacement is a recommended way to have a head full of hair because it makes a person look and feel great.
