Non-Surgical Hair Replacement
By Hanna Nilson
The Washington Post reports that the average
American, suffering from hair loss, spends a total of 3.5 billion dollars
a year on hair treatments! Unfortunately, it's also suggested that the
majority of advertised hair loss products and treatments are less than
satisfying to consumers.
various non-surgical hair replacement treatments out there; including
devices, shampoos, creams, vitamin supplements, prescription pills etc.
While some of these products may work for certain people, they might not
work for others. At this point, there really is no guarantee on any
particular product to work for everyone. However, there are a few proven
hair replacement alternatives that have shown to be worth looking into.
For people, who are in search of non-surgical hair replacement
alternatives, you may want to consider the following options.
Minoxidil Hair Treatment: Products containing
Minoxidil such as Rogaine have been known to work with 51% of men using
products which contained 5% or more Minoxidil. Itís FDA approved to help
slow the process of hair loss or to help re-grow hair in areas of the
scalp where there is hair loss. Most Minoxidil products are available over
the counter and noticeable changes occur within months.
Loss Treatment: Weíve all heard of laser hair removal, however using
lasers to help re-grow hair seems somewhat backwards. Nevertheless, this
non-surgical hair replacement therapy is claimed by some surgeons to be a
breakthrough for hair regeneration. The laser hair treatment aims to
stimulate the hair follicles of the scalp by increasing blood flow and
nutrition in the baling areas, thereby helping to re-grow hair.
Unfortunately, this hair replacement process has not yet been approved by
Replacement Drugs and Medications: Hair loss drugs are usually a
personís initial line of defense upon first notice of hair loss. There are
literally thousands of over the counter and prescription medication drugs
out there. However, only two are FDA approved: Rogaine and Propecia. Using
hair loss medications can be a less expensive hair restoration option.
Unfortunately, it can also be a trying process since none are 100%
guaranteed to work. So, for anyone exploring non-surgical hair
restoration, keep in mind that while certain drugs and medications might
be a good place to start; donít expect immediate or significant results.
Replacement Piece: Hair pieces are probably one of the most immediate
solutions to dealing with hair loss. Wigs, cap wigs, weaves, toupees and
integration hairpieces can effectively and subtly conceal bald spots or
hair thinning caused by all types of hair loss. These hair replacement
pieces can, however, be pretty pricy. Depending on the quality of these
non-surgical hair replacement products, you may find a wide range of
personalized hairpieces made with either authentic or synthetic hair.
non-surgical hair replacement treatments can be a wonderful option for
those who suffer from hair loss and would like to regain the appearance of
having a full head of hair without undergoing a surgical operation. As
each case is different, you may want to consider referring to a
professional for a personalized consultation. This may insure better
results for your unique hair replacement needs.
