Treatments for Baldness

Balding and baldness can be treated by topical and oral drugs, as well as surgery, weaves, wigs and hair pieces. The is also the widely-used, and derided, "comb-over" hair style. Propecia® (finasteride) is a once-a-day pill that is effective as a treatment for hair loss. This drug blocks the 5-alpha reductase enzyme responsible for the production of DHT in men showing the symptoms of male pattern baldness. Up to 3 months of daily dosing with Propecia can be required before results are evident. Taking Propecia can result in some side effects. Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant cannot even handle Propecia tablets because of the risk of birth defects. Some men show a decrease in sexual desire, difficulty in achieving an erection, or a decrease in the amount of semen produced. Propecia is temporary. When Propecia is stopped, the patterns of former baldness return.

The topical medication Rogaine® (minoxidil) is applied directly to the scalp, avoiding the side effects of oral medication, and can be used by both men and women. You can expect to wait up to six months through twice-a-day applications before beginning to see results with Rogaine. Rogaine treatment is also temporary. Hair loss will resume of Rogaine treatment is stopped. Rogaine has a few side effects such as itchy scalp. More severe side effects, including headaches, low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat can occur if too much of the drug is used.

Hair transplants and other surgical procedures to treat balding are performed by a physician in a surgical environment. Hair transplants remove growing hair from one part of the head and transfer it to another area that has less hair cover. This is a somewhat painful and fairly expensive procedure, but has the advantage that it is usually permanent. Hair weaves, hair pieces, articifical har replacement or changes of hair style may disguise hair loss. These are the least expensive and safest approach to hair loss. These approiaches are also temporary and can look somewhat artificial. Hair pieces and other appliances are also inconvenient and occasionally embarrassing to use.
