If you’re like many men who struggle with thinning hair, receding hair, or balding, you probably have lots of question about hair loss and your treatment options. Here are helpful answers to some of the most common questions about men’s hair loss.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are many myths about what can cause hair loss, including headwear and poor hygiene. In truth, the strongest contributing factor to hair loss is genetics. Although baldness is more often seen in men, 70% of hair loss results from maternal genes. Stress, illness, certain medications, chemotherapy treatments, burns, injuries, hormones, and autoimmune diseases may also cause hair loss.
How Can I Stop Hair Loss?
There are two types of FDA-approved treatments that are known to slow the loss of hair in some cases. Topical treatments have been shown to reduce the rate of hair loss and occasionally result in the regrowth of some hair. Low-level laser therapy can also stimulate the growth of thicker, fuller hair. Unfortunately, there is no cure to stop hair loss completely or fully reverse hair loss.
What Are Hair Loss Treatment Options?
Topical and laser treatments are not the only treatment options for hair loss. Surgical hair transplants are another, more involved treatment option. During hair transplant surgery, donor hairs from areas of your scalp unaffected by hair loss are removed and surgically implanted in critical areas of hair loss. For immediate results, non-surgical hair replacement options like hair integration, hair grafting, wigs, and hairpieces are your best option. Live Scalp Replica, Omnigraft, and Virtual Reality Hair are just a few popular replacement options that are non-invasive and offer natural-looking results.
