The prospect of going bald can keep anyone up at night. While women experience hair loss, it’s much more common in men. Two out of three men will start losing their hair the moment they turn 35. Men who begin losing their hair experience a dip in self-confidence and develop feelings of anxiety and depression. This is the time when you begin to ask yourself whether there is a way to stop hair loss. Yes, there is!
There are a lot of treatments and procedures available that can help not only stop hair loss but also bring lost hair growth back. Here are the most effective hair loss treatments and procedures according to the hair restoration and transplantation experts in Darling Hair Restoration in Kansas City:
Hair Loss Treatment Options
First, we begin by examining the cause of hair loss. While hair loss is largely hereditary, environmental factors and lifestyle choices can exacerbate the condition and hasten hair loss. Our hair loss experts will determine the type of hair loss you are experiencing and discern whether you are suffering from hair loss that should be a concern. We will perform a pull test, pluck test, scalp counts, and a biopsy or trichometric analysis to arrive at a clinical hair loss diagnosis.
The hair loss treatment method that will work for you will depend on your type of hair loss. In our office, we perform hair transplant surgery, PRP therapy, low-level laser therapy, and medical treatment methods to put a stop to hair loss.
Hair transplant surgery is either a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure or follicular unit transplant (FUT) procedure. Both procedures involve transplanting healthy hair from a donor site (typically the back or sides of your head) to areas of your scalp that are lacking hair growth. It is a highly effective procedure that will regrow hair where you haven’t seen growth in years.
With low-level laser therapy, we provide a home-unit laser device for you to use for your thinning hair. This treatment prevents further hair loss and can even help thicken your hair.
With PRP therapy, we harvest your blood and separate the platelets from its other contents using a centrifuge machine. The platelets are then injected into the scalp to boost growth and heal the scalp. PRP therapy can help stop hair loss and even regrow hair.
Stopping hair loss also requires making lifestyle changes. For instance, keeping stress levels low, engaging in mindfulness exercises, eating a healthy diet rich in iron, and taking supplementations with vitamin D can all help slow the progression of hair loss. There are also professional-grade hair loss shampoos containing ketoconazole that can help stop hair loss. These are only available by prescription from a doctor.
