Ways to Treat Hair Loss


3 Secret Ways to Treat Hair Loss

Treating alopecia can be an uphill battle. It’s usually not easy to get the diagnosis, and then if you do, figuring out the root cause of your hair loss can be a struggle. It may seem like there are no treatment options, but that isn’t true. Below are just three strategies you can implement to treat your hair loss.

1. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Treatment

One of the best hair loss treatments on the market right now is PRP. PRP will improve hair density without surgery or any side effects. It’s a simple treatment that involves an injection of your platelets into the scalp.

PRP will increase hair density because it: 

  • Increases hair thickness
  • Triggers and maintains the hair growth phase
  • Decreases hair loss
  • Controls the hair growth cycle

2. Over-the-Counter Medications and Topical Hair Growth Treatment

One of the first steps you should take when you start to experience hair loss is look at the various over-the-counter and topical treatments available. For example, Rogaine is a popular topical treatment. Nine out of 10 men and more than 80 percent of women saw an increase in their hair count after using it. Another option is to go through a hair restoration treatment with a company like Regenix. They offer natural hair loss treatment that comes in many forms, from shampoos to vitamins to hair gel.

3. Medical Hair Restoration Treatment

Besides over the counter medication, you should work with your doctor to treat your hair loss. Your doctor can provide recommendations, such as hormone therapy. They’ll also take your blood work as low iron and vitamin D can lead to hair loss. A couple other popular treatment options are cortisone shots and laser treatments. These will help reduce inflammation of the hair follicles, which inhibits hair from growing.

Signs You Might Want to Get PRP for Hair Loss

Facing hair loss can be hard. You’ve likely experienced several symptoms before treating thinning hair. Below are a few signs that you should consider the hair loss treatments above.

  • Thinning hair

If you’ve noticed that your hair line has begun to recede, it’s time to think about treatment.

  • Patchy spots

Sometimes hair falls out in spots. If you notice patchy spots, or bald spots beginning to form, hair restoration treatment is a good option for you.

  • Clumps

Hair loss can often occur in clumps that come out when you brush your hair or when you shower.

  • Full-body hair loss

Don’t just pay attention to the hair on your head. You can start to lose hair everywhere on your body, from your arms to your legs.

We know that hair loss isn’t an easy thing to face. Keep in mind that if you’re experiencing thinning hair, you should consult your doctor because it could be a symptom of a larger issue like thyroid problems, lupus, anemia, and more. Once you figure out the cause, you can go about treating your alopecia.
