Hair Transplant Surgery
Hair transplant is to move your hair already have (from the donor site) to fill an area with thin or no hair. Hair transplants work because not all of your hair is affected by DHT. By moving DHT-resistant hairs to a certain part of your head, the surgery may be able to give you a thicker, fuller head of hair. The technique assures no changes in the overall follicular distribution.
However, hair transplant doesn’t create new hair, it just produces a significant improvement in the appearance of your hair. All hair transplant techniques produce painful scars which becomes different size and shape on patients’ scalp. Possible risks include bleeding, bruising, swelling and infection. Speaking of cost, hair transplant is the more expensive one than other hair treatment options. Usually the costs vary from $6,000 for small cases, $10,000 for medium-sized cases and $15,000 for large cases.
Hair supplements and drugs contain hair nutrients and key ingredients: Vitamin D, A, C, biotin, acid, zinc and so on. Taking hair supplements can help you make up the difference and make sure that your hair follicles are getting all the nourishment they need for normal hair growth. FDA has approved two drugs to treat male pattern baldness: Rogaine and Finasteride. Rogaine is consider as vasodilator. It’s believed to work by partially enlarging hair follicles and elongating the growth phase of hair; Finasteride is a prescription drug, as the brand name Proscar and Propecia. It’s used to treat male pattern hair loss by decreasing the amount of DHT in your body.
Sure, vitamins help the new hair grow, but it’ll take several months, even several years to regrow healthy, fuller hair. Also hair supplements aren’t effective for everyone, and there’ll be potential side effects or allergies if you take too much supplement.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4-6 weeks apart, and maintenance treatments are required every 4-6 months. To produce PRP, medical professional will take a blood sample and put it into a machine called centrifuge, which separates the components of the blood. PRP contains a range of growth factors and proteins that speed tissue repair, and this process repairs your blood vessels, promotes new cells’ growth and maximizes your natural hair growth cycles.
PRP therapy involves injecting your own blood into your scalp, and it carries a risk of side effects such as: injury to blood vessels or nerves, infection, scar tissue, calcification at the injection points. If you are a heavy smokers, on blood thinners, or have a history of alcohol or drug misuse, you might be rejected for this treatment. Speaking of the cost, PRP therapy typically ranges from $1,500-$3,500 for the initial three treatments, with one injection $400 or more. Pricing depends on a number of factor including: quality of equipment, addition of nutritive components and your geographic location.
