Choosing Hair Loss Treatments
Before considering any hair loss treatment, the first step is to find out why your hair is falling out.
Most hair loss is genetic and can be traced within your family. In some cases there is another cause.
This could be a course of medication perhaps that has caused a temporary acceleration in hair loss. In such cases the hair loss stops when the medication is ceased. If you think this could be a factor then you should see your Doctor before taking steps to stop taking prescribed medication.
In other circumstances certain illnesses are known to cause hair loss. If illness is suspected as the cause of your hair loss, then tests can be carried out to rule out any underlying medical cause.
Most experts agree that acting as soon as you notice hair loss is best. Seeking advice at the earliest stage may give you the best opportunity to re-grow any lost hair and slow down or stop any further loss.
Many of our Patients say that their hair loss seem to creep up almost un-noticed. This is because you can lose a significant amount of hair before you do notice thinning or balding areas appear. Others suddenly notice lots of hair falling out when washing or combing their hair.
This can be very alarming of course. Again, we would stress that seeking advice early is perhaps the best course of action.
Losing hair at any age can be a daunting experience, although losing it at a young age can be particularly distressing. Men who lose hair at the front in their twenties can look much older than their years as a result. His leads to a lack of self confidence , especially in forming relationships.
We also see lots of women who are losing their hair. This is much more common than perhaps most people realise. In many cases this presents as a diffuse thinning overall where the scalp can be seen through fine weak hair. Such cases should be investigated thoroughly to rule out any other causes.
Thankfully, there are medications that are proven to treat falling hair. These include minoxidil and finasteride, sometimes called Propecia. These treatments have to be maintained to sustain the results gained, but they are effective in many cases, with few problems.
Their best action is in slowing down hair loss and strengthening existing hair. Many Patients who use these treatments notice a reduction in the amount of hair falling out and a general thickening of the remaining hair.
Considering Hair Transplant
If you have lost a significant amount of hair, such as a full male pattern baldness for example, then you may want to consider alternative treatments such an FUT or FUE hair transplant where hair can be guaranteed to grow where it has been lost.
It is possible of course to combine hair transplant surgery with topical treatment such as minoxidil or finasteride. This will help slow down the rate of hair loss and re-grow hair where it has been lost.
