Hair loss is a condition of permanent or occasional hair falling out. Effective medications for hair loss treatment and prevention are available on the pharmaceutical market. However how to distinguish which of the drugs will be effective for you, and which of the medicines will harm your health. Before you will buy your first hair loss treatment you must know that some conditions are permanent, no matter what type of treatment you will be administered you will not manage to grow new hair on scalp. Another fact to consider is a myth busting. None of the hair loss treatments will not induce hair growing all over your body. Any hair loss drug affects only scalp area. Mind also, that most of the results are permanent. Regardless of what method of hair loss therapy you will opt in (laser treatment, surgery, drugs), you will get only temporary effect – commonly in a year you will lose the regrown hair again. This means that hair loss therapy must be taken regularly (at least once in a year, but with age the frequency of treatments will increase). Here you can buy Propecia online.
The goals of any hair loss treatments are as follows:
- stimulate new hair growth or “wake up” follicles which do not produce hair
- slow hair loss
- hide hair loss
Any hair loss treatments are prescription medications or therapies which must be agreed with your health care provider. Some medications change hormonal balance and stimulate excessive production of specific substances required for stimulation of hair growth.
Why you need to see a doctor?
There are various reasons to see a doctor before you will order your first box of hair loss pills. The reasons are evident:
- none of the drugs are harmless – while treating one condition the drug may damage other parts of the body or change their functioning
- in some cases hair loss is caused with underlying diseases – taking hair loss drugs without treating the condition causing hair loss will be useless and you will never manage to regrow your hair
- each of the drug has side effects and contraindications – your health care provider will consider you overall health condition, diseases and specific conditions, age, sex and lifestyle
- hair loss may be induced with other treatment you are taking – only your doctor will be able to detect what causes the hair falling out and will replace the drugs causing such an effect with a safer one.
Still regardless of the potential risks patients try various medicines without prescription. If you purchase a hair loss drug over the counter, we recommend choosing among the drugs approved by FDA for treatment of hair loss.
