Hair restoration or solutions for hair loss include methods to prevent and treat different hair loss conditions in men and women.
The reasons behind hair loss, balding or alopecia are individual for each patient. They may be genetic, medical problems, poor hair care, hormonal imbalance, diseases like diabetes, menopausal period in women, poor nutrition.
Replacing lost hair can be a long process which demands lots of efforts and certain proper techniques. The techniques used can be various from topical application of special creams to oral pills and surgical treatments.
Hair loss or baldness can be a matter of concern for a man who experiences gradual thinning and falling of hair. Started on the front sides of the head and continuing to recede on other parts of the scalp hair still can be restored and hair fall can be completely prevented.
The earlier the cause of the condition is found out, the more effective would be the treatment. Replacement of the hair is not a dream but a real thing which a man can try if there are no contraindications for it.
Actually there are two approved methods of hair loss treatment in men. One of these methods is use of oral medicines containing Finasteride. The other one is surgical method involving hair transplantation.
Surgical methods are painless, comfortable, successful and done only once to improve the whole situation on the scalp. Still unlike other methods, surgical one is very expensive and cannot be affordable for all men. The three surgical methods used today are very effective and involve modern technologies of transplantation.
Finasteride-based medicines come in pills forms and are indicated for the treatment of male pattern baldness in men. One of the best known medicines containing Finasteride is a brand Propecia.
Propecia is only for men, children and women should not use this medicine due to the high risks of its action on them.
The oral pills of Propecia may require a long time of treatment before a man can see the actual results. The treatment may last for about half a year or longer before a man and his doctor understands if the medicine works or not.
Finasteride is recommended for oral use in 1 mg dose each day. This dose is effective enough to combat hair thinning and hair fall in men if used regularly. Men should understand that Propecia treatment is a life-long treatment and in case of discontinuation of the treatment the hair loss will return.
Before the treatment with Propecia men should discuss with their doctors their health history, other medical conditions and application of other medicines.
Finasteride can cause certain unpleasant effects on male’s sexual health. These side effects happen rarely and may include: erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, loss of libido and others.
