Put simply: Blood is taken from someone with hair fall and Growth Factors are given to the person with hair fall, then injected into the scalp where the hair fall is taking place. She states however that much is still being learned and studied about this method, but that so far it seems promising for both the treatment of hair loss, and possible renewed growth. So what exactly is it that they do? How does this treatment work?
The procedure works by the use of special chemical agents that “trick” the androgenetic hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) into behaving in an anti-productive manner. In the case of females, this DHT is converted into dihydrotestosterone, a more harmful form of testosterone. (DHT is also converted into estrogen in males.) This treatment essentially stops the conversion of DHT into these harmful forms, thus stopping hair follicle shrinkage and eventually, hair fall.
Hair treatment by means of chemical agents is not without controversy. While hair treatment by means of chemical agents has been around for some time, there are many who are concerned with side effects and safety. Fortunately, today there are many alternatives to using chemicals on one’s scalp. There are shampoos, conditioners, gels, oils, lotions, and other topical applications that can be used to treat hair loss. These methods can all be administered by a licensed dermatologist, or at a very low price, by a non-licensed alternative dermatologist.
Now that you know how the treatment of hair loss works, what should you do to stop it? Here are a few tips that may help you. First, keep in mind that even though you may have used an at home remedy or a prescription topical application, if it doesn’t contain the ingredients that your hair needs, it won’t be effective. You should use a method that contains ingredients such as minoxidil (Rogaine) or finasteride (Propecia).
While these two treatments are the most widely used, many women prefer microneedling, which is similar to the laser hair removal but involves tiny electrical pulses rather than the intense light beam. It can be done at home or in the privacy of your own home. There are many options for treatment of hair loss using the microneedling procedure. It usually starts with a numbing agent such as anesthetamines, then a solution containing either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide is applied to the target areas.
Another common treatment of androgenetic alopecia is called phototherapy. A photodynamic therapy session consists of shining a low-energy blue light onto the scalp. This type of treatment can be very effective for people who have dark hair. For most people, however, it results in minimal hair regrowth and often has very disappointing results. Some people report minor hair regrowth using this method, while others experience complete hair reduction.
New studies by the Kansas State University School of Medicine show great potential for using a natural product called academy dermatol (AAC) to treat the causes of androgenetic alopecia. Unlike many standard hair care products, academy dermatol contains no artificial additives or preservatives. It is based on the results of earlier studies that acad Dermatol does show promising results for treating androgenetic alopecia.
Your hair follicles may be resistant to certain medications, such as minoxidil. In this case, your dermatologist may recommend another treatment that has a lower rate of resistance to the medications. One example is adapalene. Your dermatologist may recommend that you begin taking a high dose of it with minoxidil first to see if your hair follicles are more sensitive to the medication. Another medication that your doctor may recommend for this treatment of alopecia is topiramate. You could stop using one medication and try another if your response to one medication does not respond positively to another.
