Hair Restoration Options That Suit You

by on September 13, 2014 in Hair Loss Treatment


By definition, hair restoration refers to the treatments to different kinds of hair loss. These procedures may be surgical or non-surgical, depending on the hair condition and the patient’s choice. Androgenetic alopecia (AGA), also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss.

Discover the different surgical and non-surgical options for hair restoration.

We go with the non-invasive treatments first. Minoxidil might be the best option there is. Also known as the brand Rogaine, this is approved for both men and women with AGA. Another choice that you may have is Finasteride, also known as Propecia. This is approved only for men with AGA, but the drug has been said to come with side effects, so usage should be done with caution, and should especially be recommended by a doctor first. If you wish to go drug-free with your hair restoration treatment, opt for lasers. These have been proven in clinical trials to help restore hair in both men and women.

Then, here come the surgical options for hair loss. These invasive treatments, first introduced in the United States in 1952, can help permanently regrow hair by transplanting healthy hair into balding areas of the scalp. Hair restoration surgery involves the extraction of follicular units (groups of one to four hair strands) from the donor site, where healthy hair is produced, and moved into the recipient area (the balding area of the scalp). This procedure, first used for male pattern baldness, is now used to treat female pattern baldness, as well as eyebrow hair loss. Hair restoration surgery should only be performed by certified surgeons who specialize in hair replacement, as harmful side effects may result if not performed well.

The most common surgical treatment for hair loss is called follicular unit transplantation, abbreviated as FUT. In this procedure, follicular units are extracted from the back of your head where hair is healthy and permanent, to areas of the scalp where there is less hair, to help produce healthy, hair-producing follicles. If done properly, little to no scars will appear after this procedure.

On the other hand, FUE, or Follicular Unit Extraction, is a hair restoration procedure where in hair follicles are removed directly from the scalp and grafted one by one to the bald area of the head. Also known as Follicular Transfer, this is a minimally-invasive procedure compared to FUT.

The results of various hair treatments, whether invasive or non-invasive, vary widely per patient. In order to find the right remedy for your hair loss, it is best to get medical advice first to be sure of which hair restoration treatment you should get.
