If you are one of the millions of people living in the United States who are currently suffering from hair loss, there is hope.  Based on the type of hair loss you are experiencing, your health, and your goals, there are solutions to help restore your hair and your confidence.  Below you will find descriptions of a few of the most popular options.

Easy, Non-Invasive Hair Styling Options

Knowing that there are quick fixes for hair loss puts some patients at ease.  Although the following options are not for everyone, they are good choices for some because they offer the flexibility of being either short or long term solutions.

Some patients, especially men, choose to shave their heads and be bald.  Because this is a popular look for the younger generation, a clean-shaven look is considered fashionable.  If this is the right style for you, look no further.

Hairpieces, including wigs, toupees, extensions, and hair systems, have radically improved in recent years.  It is no longer painfully obvious that someone is wearing a hairpiece as long as regular maintenance is performed as recommended.

Topical or Oral Medications

Topical and oral medications have been around for a while and have been proven effective for treating select types of hair loss.

Rogaine®, also known as Minoxidil, is currently available over the counter.  When used as directed by your hair restoration specialist, Rogaine® effectively generates regrowth in areas where the hair is thinning.  Rogaine® can also slow down the progression of hair loss.   Rogaine® does not work on scalp areas that are completely bald.  Also important to know, Rogaine® is a temporary solution.  Once you stop using the product, your hair, and your hair loss will revert to its original state.

Propecia®, also known generically as Finasteride, is a prescription drug that is used by men to treat androgenetic alopecia, male pattern baldness.  The medication, originally developed to treat enlarged prostates, blocks the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT known for damaging the hair follicles.  Men opting to use Propecia® must stay on the medication for at least one year to see results. If Propecia® use is discontinued, the hair and associated hair loss revert to its original state.

Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgery is a lasting hair restoration solution that works best for patients with permanent hair loss due to conditions such as androgenetic alopecia, trichotillomania, accidents, and plastic surgery.  During a hair transplant, donor hair is moved from the back of your scalp to areas where your hair is thinning or balding.  Hair transplant surgery has come a long way since the old-fashioned plugs.  Today’s strip extraction and follicular unit extraction (EUE) methods create natural hair patterns that look and feel like the hair you had before your hair loss.
