Effective Forms of Hair Restoration

Hair loss is always a challenging issue to deal with. Procedures for hair restoration can be too expensive or seem too risky for many patients. Parker Trichology is aware of this. That’s why we want to give you information on some non-surgical hair restoration options. These methods are less invasive, which most people are more comfortable with.

Hair Restoration Methods

Medications

Two different medications are most common in treating hair loss. They are minoxidil and finasteride. These are available over the counter and are the ONLY two FDA approved medicines for hair restoration. 

  • Minoxidil causes blood vessels to dilate, allowing more blood and oxygen to get to the hair follicles. Constricted blood vessels are why men suffer from baldness. 
  • Finasteride blocks DHT, which is the cause of hair loss. However, Finasteride may have some sexual side effects since DHT is a hormone essential to the body.

LLLT or Low-level laser therapy

This treatment is still new, and doctors are not quite sure why it works. While we are still not quite sure why it works, we do understand LLLT’s basic process:

  • Stimulating anagen phase re-entry in telogen phase hairs
  • Prolonging the duration of the anagen phase
  • Increasing hair growth rates in anagen phase follicles
  • Preventing premature catagen phase development

Microneedling

Microneedling is a process that has been used for years to treat aging. Recently, it has been used on the scalp and shown positive results for hair restoration.

Microneedling is a process where several tiny wounds are created. During the healing process, inflammation, proliferation, and maturation have created new hair follicle cells, leading to hair restoration. 

A Healthy Diet

Your body can always benefit from healthy living. More specifically, your hair needs oxygen and nutrients, just like every other part of your body. When you give your body what it needs, you are more prone to have healthy growth in your hair. 

Not all of the options are right for you. The only guaranteed way to figure that out is to speak with a professional.
