Hair loss restoration without surgery?

The best hair transplants look great. But whether you’re getting a hair transplant or not, you should keep as much of your original hair as possible. It’s possible using prescription and non prescription hair maintenance products.


Hair maintenance drugs such as Minoxidil and Propecia (Finasteride) reduce the effects of DHT a hormone that causes hair follicles to weaken and die. The result in male pattern baldness.

Propecia is a prescription drug that is taken by mouth. For best results it should be taken as soon as hair loss is noticed. Propecia is also prescribed for people who have had hair transplants to help prevent further loss of the original hair.

Minoxidil is a non-prescription topical drug that is rubbed into the scalp. Available in 2% and 5% solutions. While the 5% solution works well for men, the 2% solution is the treatment of choice for women because using too much can cause unwanted side effect. Ironically, one side effect can be hair loss.
