Hair Loss Remedies Are A Big Business Today
Baldness cures have been pedaled to a large segment of the population – namely men – for many years. From “snake oil” topical remedies containing a wide variety of rare and mysterious ingredients, to megadoses of vitamins and potent medications, hair loss remedies are a big business today. NYC hair transplant alternatives often disappoint, and the ever-growing assortment of choices have not increased the number of success stories.
One of the most important reasons remedies don’t work is that male pattern hair loss, (also female pattern hair loss) is not caused by a nutrition deficit that needs vitamin or mineral supplementation. In North America today, the majority of those who seek restoration for hair loss are experiencing a natural, hormone-related baldness referred to as androgenic alopecia. This condition is genetic so if one’s parents and grandparents have experienced balding, there is a good chance the tendency has been passed on through the genes and sensitivity to testosterone will mean inevitable hair loss. For some, this presents as diffuse thinning or hairline recession. For many men as young as 20 hair loss begins as balding at the crown and receding at the temples which eventually meet and leave only a strip of hair at the back and lower sides of the head.
Is There a Cure?
The shed-resistant hair that grows at the back of the head is particularly useful for NYC hair transplant surgery. By carefully extracting individual hair follicles from these donor areas and placing them in the top and front of the scalp, they can take root and grow there without worry of balding in the future. Today’s modern hair transplant techniques are safe, effective and permanent. Because no general anesthetic or medication is required, side effects are rare and the procedure itself is less invasive than ever before.
