Dec 31st 2012 at 1:07 AM

Hair loss affects men more than women in every part of the world. For Hair loss restoration options such as topical treatments to surgery are available depending upon the severity of the case and it is best to consult a dermatologist. With correct diagnosis hair loss can be checked or stopped completely. A dermatologist will evaluate a patient's hair-loss problem to find the cause and determine whether the problem will resolve on its own or medical treatment is needed. Not only for adults who worry about getting bald or losing hair rapidly but in a few cases evens teens lose their hair, a sign that something wrong is happening. Usually it could be one of those causes where water seems to be highly chlorinated.

Some people prefer to let their baldness run its course untreated and some choose one of the medications and surgical procedures that are available to treat hair loss. Before settling down to any treatment options, taking medical advice to the best possible treatment is very important.

Studies have shown that about 30% of people lose hair by age 30, and about 50% experience normal loss by age 50. Hair loss nowadays is so common that it is considered a normal phenomenon and not a disease.

The normal cycle of hair growth lasts for 2 to 6 years. Each hair grows approximately 1 cm (less than half an inch) per month during this phase. About 90 per cent of the hair on the scalp is growing at any one time while about 10 per cent of the hair is in a resting phase. After 2 to 3 months, the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.

Some of the treatments for Hair Loss are:

Minoxidil (Rogaine): This over-the-counter (nonprescription) medication is approved for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata. Minoxidil is a liquid or foam that is to be rubbed on scalp twice daily for hair growth and prevention of further hair loss. Minoxidil is available in a 2 percent and 5 percent solution.

 

For severe hair loss wigs and hairpieces provide good results. It can be used in combination with medications or surgery if the results of styling or the hairpiece alone are not satisfying.

The American Hair Loss Association recognizes that hair loss is an extremely emotionally distressing disease that can make those afflicted particularly vulnerable. For this reason, The AHLA recommends against purchasing any hair loss product that is not approved by the FDA or recommended by The American Hair Loss Association.

Laser therapy

The laser light generated by low-powered (cold) lasers (low level Laser Therapy - LLLT) provides light energy to the hair roots which stimulate hair growth or re-growth while the technique used in HLTC's laser therapy has many advantages such as high efficiency with low power requirements for appropriate doses. It is the very best on the market. HLTC's laser therapy is easy to operate. Simply lower the hood over the client's head using the regulator. Press the START button and treatment begins. HLTC's laser therapy indicates the end of treatment with a beeping signal.
