Stopping your hair loss might seem like a daunting task but with the right guidance and proven solutions it’s really easier than you might think.
The first step is to make sure your hair loss is not due to a temporary cause. These range from hormonal changes during pregnancy to drug interactions and periods of extreme stress. Temporary hair loss stops when the cause is corrected. The best course of action to determine if your hair loss is temporary is to see your physician. If it’s determined that your hair loss is progressive then it’s time to investigate solutions.
Progressive hair loss is also known as male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss. Male-pattern hair loss is characterized by thinning around the temples and crown of the head while hair is retained on the sides and back. Female-pattern hair loss is characterized by a general thinning throughout the scalp. And although the patterns of hair loss are different for men and women, the treatment options are very similar.
Though hair loss remedies are often in press releases and advertisements, only a handful of them are actually clinically proven to stop hair loss while also being cleared by the FDA for treatment. All proven hair loss treatments are offered by Bosley and explained by trained counselors, which is the first step to stopping your hair loss.
During your free, private consultation a Bosley counselor thoroughly explains available hair loss treatments. In addition, you receive a free microscopic scalp and hair analysis that provides insight into your hair loss and availability of donor hair.
A complete hair restoration plan is decided by you and your Bosley physician and could include dual therapies. Hair transplantation is the only permanent solution to hair loss but can be complemented by Propecia® (a prescription drug for men only) or technological advancements in Low Level Light Therapy (Bosley LaserComb Elite® and Theradome™ Laser Helmet).
Ultimately your hair loss treatment plan will result in a perfectly natural look, restored hairline and hair that is your own.
