Medical Hair Restoration, Worth It?

Saturday, January 9th, 2010


The possibility of restoring hair loss through alternative hair restoration options such as by using finasteride or Rogaine is an issue some people may be wondering about. Although hair restoration through these shortcut methods (without a hair transplant procedure) might be OK for some people, I can’t advocate it as a full-fledged solution. Advertisements may try to sway you into believing it is the answer.

Today, FDA has OK’d certain medications for hair loss prevention: finasteride and minoxidil. I must say, both are legitimate treatments, but they may have various indications for a male and female baldness pattern. But they are not, I repeat, they are not a cure-all solution for male patterned baldness, as other pharmacy industry experts may try to get you to believe.

A hair transplant ought to be thought of as a preventive agent, along with other alternativest. And also as vital part of a bigger plan on looking your best. A lot of men and women experience shock loss after a hair transplant surgery; these people are required to try preventative measures like finasteride, at least a month or two before the hair transplant.

Since hair restoration surgery started (in the 1990s) and until recently, when a hair restoration surgery was done, shock loss had been a significant issue hair transplant patients had to deal with.

But these days, a good majority of patients go on finasteride after a hair transplant surgery.
