Types of Hair Loss Treatment Available To Sufferers.
The hair loss treatments outlined here cannot provide definitive cures for all hair loss conditions, but they do represent regimes that many sufferers have found useful. In other words, they are examples of potential solutions that many patients have chosen after honestly assessing the causes of their hair loss together with their expectations.
This article will focus on four basic approaches to Hair Loss Treatment:
- A drugs based approach for those who don't mind taking strong medications.
- A commercial product approach for those who prefer a non-drug solution but who still want a treatment that has a track record.
- A natural remedy approach for those who prefer to follow the natural route.
- A nutritional approach for those who wish to adopt a more holistic perspective.
It remains a fact that only two hair loss treatments have been approved by the FDA and both can be classed as strong drug-based medications. Propecia (finasteride) is the treatment of choice for many men with good reason - it tends to work! It is a powerful drug that inhibits the formation of DHT in the system, eventually to a level that is sufficiently low to encourage a normal growth cycle. Rogaine (minoxidil) acts differently in that it stimulates hair growth in both men and women by overriding the prevailing hair loss symptoms. These drugs can be used either on their own or in combination. Women should seek professional medical advice before using Propecia.
