HAIR RESTORATION DEFINED
Hair restoration is generally pursued for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia—male pattern baldness—and can take on various forms. Some forms of treatment include:
- Topical medication—Rogaine (minoxidil) is an FDA approved, over-the-counter medication for the treatment of male pattern baldness
- Oral medication—Propecia (finasteride) is an FDA approved, prescription-only medication for the treatment of male pattern baldness
- Surgery—There are various types of surgery to cure male pattern baldness. The most common method used is hair transplantation.
Oftentimes, when topical and oral medications fail, surgery is the answer. Surgical hair restoration is the only permanent solution to hair loss.
