Make the Most of Your Hairloss Treatments

By: gisbert

If you're suffering from alopecia, medical term for hairloss, you need not stay helpless. While Hairloss is a problem that many of us face, it is not the kind of problem we have to face sitting down.

Hairloss treatments may sound expensive, but they don't need to be! And at any rate, wouldn't you pay any price to get your precious hair back? Especially to stop time and relive those precious younger days when you were able to style your hair any way you wanted? 

Types of Hairloss Treatments

Hairloss treatments are available in one form or another; the most common forms of treating alopecia are by surgery or medicine. You will need to go to a reliable hair clinic to find out which treatments are right for you.

1) Genetic Hairloss
Hairloss, in one form or another, is a genetic condition experienced by 70 percent of all men and around 40 percent of all women by the time they hit middle age. Some of us may also carry the alopecia or hairloss gene, but not experience its effects - instead, we pass it on to our offspring. If you'd like to know your chances of experiencing alopecia, look at your grandparents, not your parents, uncles, aunts or siblings!

  • Did Grandfather lose his hair early on?
  • Did grandmother wear a wig to hide her sparse hair?

If so, there's an increased likelihood that you'll experience alopecia later in your life, as well.

2) Surgical Hair Transplants
They are becoming more and more popular as an alternative to hair loss in this day and age. The advent of technological breakthroughs such as microscopic follicular unit technology has made hair surgery more attractive today. Previously, hair surgeons were stuck with traditional grafting procedures. Thanks to this latest procedure, it is now possible for surgeons to "fine tune" their grafting paths in order not to strike at any major hair root systems, thus damaging the "natural" look around the grafted area.

  • Is "microscopic follicular unit technology" expensive?
    Not necessarily! Reliable and accredited hair clinics can offer you great allowances and discounts, so make sure to ask for them, if you're interested in getting a hair transplant.

3) Hair Loss Medicines
The most common hairloss treatments are Propecia and Rogaine. They may also be expensive in the long term, especially since you have to take them for a prolonged period. But health insurance and clinic discounts ought to make your medical purchases fall within the budget.
