When you consult family, friends, library and the Web about hair loss treatments, you will find a host of "do-it-yourself" hair loss products such as creams, ointments, lotions, nutrition supplements, scalp stimulants and other "miracle cures," all promising to stop hair loss and regrow hair.
Among all the options for nonsurgical treatment of androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness), you will find only two that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Minoxidil (Rogaine) is approved by the FDA for female pattern hair loss. It can slow or stop hair loss in most women and may help hair grow back in up to a quarter of those who use it. The benefits are lost when you stop using it. For women with alopecia areata, corticosteroids can help regrow hair. And if you have an underlying medical problem or a nutritional deficiency, hair usually grows back on its own once that condition is under control.
Most patients that come in to visit our offices often ask Does Propecia Really Work? The answer to this question is it helps 85% of patients who use it. Propecia serves as an enzyme blocker, not allowing a male’s testosterone from further converting to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Since this small pill, taken daily, goes directly to the root of the hair loss problem, it tends to be the most effective orally consumed hair loss solution of all.
This third option also falls in the category of effective products for hair loss. Since you may be like some of our patients that don’t like to use pharmaceutical products, but instead may be looking for a natural remedy for hair loss, Dr. Pizarro highly recommends consuming Vitamin B12, Biotin, Zinc and Magnesium on a daily basis. These natural remedies have been found to be very effective in strengthening the hair and nails of our patients.
