Types Of Male Hair Loss Treatment

It might be a good idea to read " What Causes Hair Loss " before you pick your treatment.

Basically there are 2 types of male hair loss treatment - medical and surgical. We favor medical treatment so it will be the first to discuss.

The medical hair loss treatments are shampoos, supplements, creams and such. They usually work by suppling you hair with vital nutrients, vitamins and herbs, some of them even have the ability to block the DHT. Our favorite treatment is trough herbal supplements. This one is usually natural and side effect free, if you pick the right one.

Supplements we recommend are Profinast and Provillus. More on the at Top Hair Loss Supplements

The surgical hair loss treatments should be an alternative to medical. The reason for this is that they are a lot more expensive ( from 8 000-20 000 USD ) and can have a bad end if you don't pick your surgeon carefully. However this treatment shows the best results and should be considered if anything else didn't work.

The best surgical hair loss treatments is hair transplantation.

Hair transplantation surgery

Its basically an operation that takes hair from the back of the head and moves it to the area of hair loss. The hair on the saids and the back of the head is known as donor dominant hair which is the hair that will continue to grow throughout the life of most men. The transplantation of this hair to a bald area does not change its ability to grow and resist hair loss. Thats because the follicles at the back and the side of your head are not subject to the effects of DHT, and since the follicles are whats transplanted you will not have hair loss problems again.

We already told you that in order to avoid risks of complication you should pick a good surgeon, but there are other risk factors that involve you and your lifestyle. The surgeon will ask you anyway but here is a list of the most important:
  • medications that decrease the ability of the blood to clot, such as anti-inflammatory drugs
  • conditions that require antibiotics prohylaxis, such as artificial joints or valves
  • alcohol abuse or heavy drinking
  • tobacco use, especially long-term cigarette smoking
  • obesity
  • use of herbal supplements
  • use of immunosuppressive drugs, including chemotherapy and corticosteroids
  • malnutrition, including anorexia and bulimia
  • chronic or recurrent viral infections or bacterial
  • chronic disease of the lungs, liver, kidneys, heart or gastrointestinal system
  • chronic or recurrent skin infections such as boils
  • diabetes or other chronic metabolic disease
  • immunosuppressive disease—e.g., HIV-AIDS
Its important to tell your surgeon about these risk factors and explain everything as fully as possible. Its rare that patients are denied just because of this so don't worry, you will get your new hair, but its important that the surgeon is aware so he can eliminate the risks of complications.

Think well before you pick your treatment, consider the risk, the expenses, the level of your hair loss and what suits you best. As you already know we recommend supplements for their great effects at low price and no risks, but the final decision is yours.

Thats all on what causes hair loss, if you have any questions feel free to ask us at or leave a comment.

Why go for surgery when there are simpler options available unless you are in the entertainment industry or such...

I started using Procerin recently tough I can’t see much difference I can notice my hair fall has stopped to some extent. I think regular usage may completely stop my hair fall.

Hair transplant surgery begins with injections of anaesthesia into the donor space. The anesthesia can make sure that you are feeling no pain. Once the realm is frozen, your doctor can begin removing the donor strip.
