In order to make an accurate assessment of the causes of hair loss in men, a comprehensive analysis should be done to find the cause and the best treatment options. If the hair loss is at the initial stages, then hair transplant surgery may not be beneficial. In these cases with initial stages of hair thinning where the pattern is still not established, medical hair treatment can be recommended. The patients should be evaluated and satisfied that all the relevant questions have been addressed regarding any hair treatment options, likely outcomes and the cost for each treatment. All the hair treatments should be customized to the needs and concerns of the patient and a comprehensive treatment option should be considered in younger clients. Before deciding on any hair loss treatment, a consultation with a hair loss specialist is essential to plan out the best treatment options.
Although there are no miracle cures for hair loss, there are some FDA approved hair products and medications that may help. These products and their effects should be discussed with hair restoration specialists before considering using them. Some of the FDA approved products include Finasteride, and Topical Minoxidil. Other Topical Medications are available such as Tretinoin, Diazoxide, Cyotcol, Progesterone, and topical Estrogen. These medications have been used in the past for the treatment of hair loss. There are also different shampoos, conditioner and vitamins such as Zinc, Biotin, B complex E, C and Iron that may help keep the overall condition of the hair healthy.
PRP therapy has gained popularity as a non surgical treatment option for men and women in the initial stages of hair loss. PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood, It has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. Usually the Doctor draws the patient's own blood and runs it through a machine to separate the platelets, and then injects the plasma cells into the thinning hair. ACell is a protein matrix that when injected into the scalp recruits the body’s own intrinsic growth factors and healing proteins over a period of several months. It is suggested that the combination of ACell and PRP provide a continuous supply of growth factors to the native hair follicles for several months.
As hair loss progresses, in most cases a combination of hair transplant surgery and non surgical hair restoration treatment is necessary. It is also important to note that genetic hair loss is progressive, if a patient chooses to not have any non surgical hair treatment and hair loss continues, multiple procedures may be necessary to maintain the desired density.
