New Treatments for Hair Loss – April 3rd, 2009

There are many treatments available for those who have hair loss. While some are more extreme than others, most treatments will have some affect in this war against hair loss. Medical treatments are available that will help minimize hair loss by keeping testosterone from changing into dihydrotestosterone, which is what will cause baldness in some men and some women. The medication used has a few side effects, but has not been linked to any permanent damage. Other medications will attempt to reenergize hair follicles so that they will produce new hair.
If you do not want to take a medication, you can have hair plugs. While this treatment is not new, there have been many improvements in how they are inserted and maintained. Now used on smaller sections of the head, these plugs look natural and do not harm the head in any way. Another method to reduce hair loss is to tighten the scalp by removing excess skin from the head and pulling the hair together to hide the holes. These procedures can be costly, but they can last for many years.
These new treatments can be used by men and women, but they should consult a doctor before trying a treatment jus to make sure that their body can handle the changes. Women who are pregnant should not attempt medication to solve the problem. They should wait until after they have their baby. People with heart problems and other issues should consider using other treatments beside medication as the medication could trigger a heart attack or stroke in a person that is not healthy.
