Questions: Is There A Cure For Hair Loss?
Answer: Yes. Depending on your type of hair loss: how much hair you have lost and your general health treatments are available. If you are currently taking a medicine that is causing you hair loss, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine without this side effect. Early diagnosis and treating an infection or long term scalp disorder may help stop the hair loss. Correcting a hormone imbalance will certainly help and may prevent further hair loss.
Prescription medicines and drugs prescribed by a trichologist will also help slow or prevent the development of both male and female pattern baldness. One drug that is available is minoxidil (Regaine), this is now available without a prescription but at lower strength than on private prescription. It is applied to the scalp twice a day. Both men and women can use it. Another medicine, finasteride (Propecia), is available with a prescription, and can only be used by men, but has lots of potential side effects. It comes in a pill form for men. It may take up to 12 months before you can tell if one of these medicines is working.
Always consult a trichologist for independent advice before starting any medicines or treatments.
If treatment is not an option for your type of hair loss, you may consider trying different hairstyles, wigs, hairpieces, hair weaves or some sort of artificial hair replacement.
Again, always consult a trichologist for independent advice before starting a hair replacement system as they are very expensive to make and maintain.
