Is Hair Transplant A Better Option Than Medication For Baldness?

by Andrew Martin Health Consultant

Nobody enjoys the time when they start losing their hair. The sight of a bald spot and fewer hair follicles on the head is upsetting and unpleasant. When you see your ancestors with bald heads, you need to be ready for the possibility of similar outcomes. There were fewer options for growing hair on bald heads in ancient times. We are grateful to the inventors of recent discoveries who have made it possible to restore hair on bald scalps. Today's hair loss patients are fortunate because they can now fulfil their lost dream of having flowing flocks on their bald heads.

Medication and hair transplants are two of the best ways to address hair loss. Both of these approaches are suggested depending on the patient's requirements and the stage of hair loss.

There are several different hair loss treatment options, including:

1.      Styling your hair to hide the bald area: Hair loss sufferers frequently part or arrange their remaining hair in a way that covers as much of their bald scalp as possible. However, it is only possible if you have enough hair to cover the bald spot; otherwise, it would be visible.

2.      Lotions and oils: Natural treatments are widely used to cure hair loss in India and other areas of the world, and people choose them mostly because they have no adverse effects. However, it's debatable how much they actually aid.

3.      Completely shaved heads with growing beards: Some people who suffer from hair loss love this look and find it flattering. Unfortunately, not everyone can pull off this style. In that scenario, considering different options might be wise.

4.      Temporary hair extensions: Salons now promote hair extensions that are only meant to be used temporarily. However, as they are not your own hairs, they appear unnatural and must be changed frequently.

5.      Wigs and suction wigs: Most people who are experiencing hair loss rely on wigs because they are now commercially available and almost completely natural looking. However, they still have synthetic hair, and the frontal line does not appear natural. There are also wigs that stick to your head with suction and don't fall off. However, it is tiring to put anything on and take it off again.

6.      Drugs: There are two popular therapeutic drugs currently available that are commonly used as a treatment for hair loss.

• Minoxidil (Rogaine) is an over-the-counter drug that can be administered topically and comes in a lotion form. It is meant to accelerate growth while reducing hair loss. It works by increasing blood flow to the places where it is applied, which improves the delivery of nutrients for improved growth.

• Finasteride: This is a drug that is typically administered by doctors to slow hair loss. It is known to lessen the production of the DHT hormone, which may affect the hair follicles in DHT-sensitive areas and result in hair loss by causing shrinkage and thinning.

These drugs may have benefits, but they are not always certain. Additionally, there is a potential that once you stop taking the medicine, the outcomes you have obtained may relapse.

Hair transplant: The only form of treatment that provides permanent, natural results is hair transplantation. A hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical treatment that includes moving hair follicles from the donor area—typically the back and sides of the head, but also other places of the body—to the bald area of the recipient. The greatest choice for treating hair loss is undoubtedly hair transplantation, which provides long-lasting, natural results. Your life will undoubtedly change for the better and your confidence will return.

Which one is better for you?

Following are some of the circumstances that determine whether hair loss treatment approach is chosen:

1.      I am losing hair but there is no obvious bald spot: If a patient has the early symptoms of hair loss, such as losing more than 100 hairs per day and spotting them in the sink, on pillows, or in the comb when combing, they should seek medical attention. For an accurate assessment of the stability of the hair loss and to rule out the cause, early hair loss needs to be properly observed. Thus, it is preferable to start the therapy with medicine in order to verify the benefit before choosing the final resort of a hair transplant.

2.       Despite my best efforts, nothing seems to be working: After you've tried every treatment option available for hair loss and nothing seems to be working. Although medications have been tried, no improvement has yet been seen. Then a hair transplant treatment is preferable.

3.       I am under 25 years old: In theory, there is no recommended age for hair transplantation, but if you are under 25, there is a potential that your hair loss will be unstable and progress at an unpredictable rate. Therefore, it is preferable to wait at least 3 years for hair loss to stabilize before selecting hair transplant as a therapy option. Additionally, the source of hair loss may be hidden at this young age, which could result in a failed hair transplant.

You can have a hair transplant at that age if the hair loss appears to be stable after three years.
