Statistics show that more than half of all men suffer from androgenic alopecia – commonly known as male pattern baldness – by the time they are 50. Additionally, a significant number of women show signs of hair loss.

While some people learn to live with their thinning hair, many are unwilling to sit back and watch their hair fall out. Recent statistics suggest that Americans spend over $1 billion a year on baldness remedies ranging from herbal concoctions to scalp massage to surgical procedures.

Take Action

If you’re losing your hair, you don’t have to feel helpless. If you take a proactive approach, you can help ensure that your hair stays with you well into old age.

This doesn’t mean that you should head to your local pharmacy looking for a baldness cure. The simple fact is that there’s no miracle cure for baldness. You can’t change the hormones in your body. When your hormones signal to the follicles in your scalp that it’s time to stop growing hairs, there’s nothing you can do to reverse things. There are, however, several different treatment options that can slow down your hair loss and even introduce new hair follicles to year head.

What is the Best Treatment for Baldness?

Over-the-counter drugs are the first choice for many of those who suffer from hair loss. Drugs like Rogaine and Propecia can certainly assist in slowing down hair loss (and a minority of users may even experience additional hair growth), but they aren’t a permanent solution to the problem.

The most permanent treatment for baldness is hair transplantation. This is a surgical procedure that involves relocating hair follicles that are resistant to balding from the back and sides of the head to the top of the head. Follicular unit transplantation, a new and highly effective hair transplant procedure, involves transplanting groups of one to four hairs in a way that closely mimics a natural appearance.

Looking Ahead

The hair loss treatment industry is very lucrative, so a lot of money is spent on scientific research. In the future, you can expect to see new anti-balding drugs, as well as more effective hair transplantation techniques.
