New Promising Hair-Loss Treatments for Men (and Women)
Sure, men might be from Mars and women from Venus, but no matter what planet you’re on, you definitely want to have a good hair day. Unfortunately, the older we get, that’s not always in the stars. But a host of out-of-this-world hair loss treatments can prevent your tresses from jetting away.
According to American Hair Loss Association, androgenetic alopecia (a.k.a. Male Pattern Baldness) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of 35, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss. So, it’s no surprise that hair transplantation is the number one cosmetic procedure among men.
Now, new cutting-edge treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Rejuvenation—which harnesses the regenerative properties of your own blood cells (critical to the healing process)—and transdermal delivery of follicle-stimulated-growth agents are allowing for a less drastic approach.
Your hair’s appearance and structure are much more complex that they might seem at first glance. Every strand is composed of two structures: the hair shaft above the skin and the hair follicle beneath it. At the base of the follicle are what’s known as dermal papilla and ECM, which play crucial roles in the formation and growth of new hair.
Dramatic results can be achieved when clinically tested blends of certain peptides, growth factors, pantenol, and other active ingredients are delivered trans-dermally and combined with collagen induction therapy. This process creates micro-injuries that encourages new cell growth, thereby stimulating new hair growth and helping prevent hair loss from getting worse.
The best part? These procedures can be done in as little as 20 minutes, require minimal—if any—downtime, and are less costly than traditional hair transplant procedures.
