Women with genetic or autoimmune related hair loss have very few options for hair regrowth, says Kobren. It only helps maintain existing hair and does not promote regrowth, minoxidil had been FDAapproved for women in a 2 percent concentration. Even effective therapies can be ineffective if the treatment and the root cause don’t align. Most of other miracle cures like thickening shampoos or standing on your head are nothing more than snake oil, says Kobren. Now please pay attention. Because of the possibility of sexual consequences, quite a few men shy away from taking finasteride, however, including loss of libido.
Basically, more recently, studies have shown that those aftereffect may persist after discontinuation of the medicine.
The most important thing someone interested in surgery can do, says Kobren, is homework.
So this piece is critically important for success. Of course anecdotal evidence, however, is promising. Also, I haven’t seen enough clinical data yet to show that it works, he says. That is interesting right? Kobren believes that two other emerging therapies hold promise. Fact, kobren founded a group, the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons in NY, is to find a dermatologist or trichologist to likewise, genetic hair loss says Emmanuel.
Scarring can be caused by chemical hair styling services or otight pony tails, a poser Emmanuel sees with many African American women who are hairloss sufferers. She adds that scarring can also be triggered by some autoimmune disorders. Diagnosis can include blood work to test for nutrient deficiencies, scalp examination and gathering medical, lifestyle and family information. Finasteride works by blocking the creation of dihydrotestosterone, that fuels male pattern baldness, and doubleblind clinical trials have shown that finasteride can noticeably thicken men’s hair. Men with ‘geneticallydriven’ hair loss have more options for hair regrowth, continues Kobren, thanks to a drug called finasteride, that is marketed as Propecia by the pharmaceutical giant Merck. Kobren encourages women interested in using minoxidil to buy it ‘overthecounter’ to save money. Eventually, when straight minoxidil is available for much less money at regular pharmacies, most of companies will add minoxidil to expensive shampoos and charge p dollar, he says. Forty percent of hair loss sufferers are women, and the phenomenon can be particularly devastating for them. Doesn’t it sound familiar? Hair loss in midlife is expected and they can still be seen as attractive, says Kobren, with men.
