What are the Different Types of Hair Loss Treatment?
With so many different hair loss treatments to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. While some of you may be looking for a natural remedy, others might want to go all out with the best laser hair treatment available. Let’s take a look at your options:
Natural Hair Loss Remedies
If you’re looking for a natural hair loss treatment, there are multiple options to try. Perhaps you want a postpartum hair loss treatment and want to keep things natural because you’re breastfeeding. If this is the case then you could consider taking vitamin E and Biotin. Ensuring your diet is packed full of nutritious foods is vital for healthy hair too. Make sure you eat -
- Eggs – a great source of multivitamins and minerals
- Fatty fish – mackerel, tuna, and salmon are a great source of omega 3, protein and selenium which all contribute to healthy hair growth
- Seeds and nuts - reach for walnuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds if you want to try and put a stop to hair loss. They’re packed full of zinc and selenium, and vitamin E
The most popular over-the-counter, non-prescription hair loss treatment has to be Minoxidil hair loss treatment. It is both a mens hair loss treatment and a female hair loss treatment – and there are different products available depending on your gender. Minoxidil works by reactivating your hair follicles that have become inactive. Minoxidil helps to boost new hair growth by reversing the miniaturisation of hair follicles, increasing the flow of blood in and around the hair follicles, stimulating your hair follicles to move into the growth phase, and finally lengthening the time that your hair follicles are in their growth phase. According to this article, when used for at least one year, 92% of users found that Minoxidil slowed or halted hair loss with fair to excellent results.
Laser Treatment for Hair Loss
Laser treatment for hair loss is probably the most well-known treatment for boosting hair growth and density. It is suitable for both mens hair loss and female hair loss, and we’ve achieved great results in our Este clinics. It is also suitable for use in some instances of Alopecia. Laser hair regrowth treatment is ideal as it is -
- Has zero side effects
Laser treatment for hair loss can be combined with Minoxidil for a more comprehensive approach to hair rejuvenation.
PRP Hair Loss Treatment
Mesotherapy/PRP hair loss treatment involves the scalp being injected with tiny microinjections. For mesotherapy, it’s usually a combination of Minoxidil, nutrients and certain vitamins. With PRP, your scalp is injected with platelet rich plasma. We offer both of these treatments at Este, and will be able to advise you which treatment is most suitable when you come in for your initial consultation.
