Affordable Hair Loss Treatments
Traditionally, male-pattern balding begins slowly. Men notice thinning hair and immediately look for a solution. The first step and most economical option is often a medical solution. Propecia and Avodart are very effective methods of re-growing hair at the scalp line. The medication blocks the conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is the hormone scientifically proven to cause balding. Rogaine is one of the most popular hair loss medications. Originally, it was available only by prescription; however, today it is readily available in prescription strength over-the-counter.
Other non-surgical options are available. Hair systems affix into the skin; and no surgery is required. If they are affixed properly, the hair system is virtually undetectable. The best and most natural results are achieved with thinner hair.
For best results, consider hair transplant surgery. In this case, an individual’s own hair is transplanted from one area to another. The most up-to-date technique is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) Technique. The only negative to this method is that removing the follicle unit can result in scarring. Unfortunately, since this is considered an elective procedure, insurance doesn’t cover the surgery. However, many hair clinics offer health finance at little to no interest charges.
Remember, the pharmaceutical option is only temporary. The only permanent solution is a hair transplant. Even though this is considered surgery, most patients are able to return to normal activity the very next day. Both men and women experience hair loss and affordable options are available for everyone. Be sure to consider all options before deciding on a course of action.
