Is the Hair Loss Cure Round The Corner?
Estimated annual sales of hair growth products is said to be close to $3.6 billion. The most common hair loss condition is male or female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). It is estimated that genetic hair loss may affect up to 80% of men into their 70´s. Specialists suggest baldness patterns are inherited from a combination of factors from both sides of the family, with potentially some environmental factors that come into play, too.
Minoxidil and Finasteride, the two well-known hair loss treatments on the market, can slow hair loss, but they don’t grow new hair. They were both discovered accidentally. Minoxidil, a topical product was originally developed as a blood-pressure drug. Finasteride was originally developed as a treatment for enlarged prostates. It inhibits the creation of DHT. Both products have drawbacks, if you stop taking either drug, you will lose the hair you would have lost in the duration of your usage.
At present, although there is no cure for hair loss treatment can help maintain your hair and with the use of a hair transplant procedure on the right candidate you can preserve your existing hair whilst rebuilding areas of hair loss. For example, rebuild lost hairlines or crown areas. A hair transplant in skilled hands can treat even advanced hair loss conditions.
Dr. Artur Kierach specialises in the FUE hair transplant technique. FUE is the minimally invasive hair transplant technique that removes one hair unit at a time to minimise the change around the scalp. It is a highly specialised technique when performed to the highest standard and in the wrong hands can result in poor growth and visible scarring. Hence Dr Artur insists on being part of every aspect of his Pure FUE procedures he performs.
