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.


There are 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.


Laser Hair 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 the FDA.


Hair 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.


Hair 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.


In general, 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.
