Have you noticed that your hair is thinning? Are you having that heart-sinking experience of seeing more hair in your comb or circling your shower drain? Do you have to squint when you look at yourself in the mirror to avoid seeing the changes in your hairline?
Well, there’s no need to panic. There are some great ways to restore your youthful, sexy appearance. Getting a hair transplant is the best way to make a dramatic change in the way you look. But let’s look at the pros and cons of some other options first:
Applying Rogaine (or other Minoxidil-based treatment) to your scalp may help stop future thinning and regrow some of the hair that you lost. The downside is that it doesn’t work for everyone, and that you have to use it for a while before you will know whether or not it will work for you. Also, you’re supposed to apply it to your scalp twice a day, which is a hassle.
Propecia is a pill which is effective in stopping hair loss or regrowing hair in two-thirds of the men who take it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the most common side effect is erectile dysfunction.
Nutrafol and Viviscal
Nutrafol and Viviscal are supplements that some people find helpful in reducing hair loss and increasing new hair growth. However, the FDA has not approved these supplements for treating hair loss, so you are on your own as far as determining whether they will be safe and effective for you.
Laser combs use light to treat inflammation and stimulate hair follicles. The good news is that laser combs do work for some people, and the combs have been approved by the FDA. The bad news is they don’t work for everyone, and even when they do work, they may not make much of a difference.
The hair transplant procedures available today are not your father’s hair transplants. Today’s procedures can move individual hair follicles to produce a very natural look.
These days, hair transplants are for everyone — men and women, middle-aged or young. If you want to look in the mirror (without squinting!) and see a full head of hair again, then you owe it to yourself to find out more.
