Given how common hair fall and hair loss are, it’s no surprise that there are several treatment options and types out there for us to try. Many of these treatments can be quite experimental, with hit or miss results, while there are some that are more effective.

However, depending on the extent of the problem, budget, and type of desired results—among other factors—you’ll find that these are some of the most popular options:

1.     Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy is a treatment that has gotten incredibly popular in recent years, whether it’s for skin conditions, medical conditions, or other problems. It’s also popularly prescribed as a treatment to generate and improve hair growth, but there are various disadvantages to it too. For one, while it’s considered effective, there is still speculation about its results and effectiveness, and it still takes a while for any type of result to show.

2.     Surgical hair transplants

One of the most popular methods for permanent hair treatments is hair transplant surgery. However, these surgeries, while generally safe, can also be dangerous and come with complications, including scarring, troubled recovery, and a lot of downtimes. Not to mention it’s painful and extensive, although generally considered an outpatient procedure.

3.     Hair extensions and wigs

Hair extensions and wigs are generally semi-permanent methods of hair replacement and can be installed cosmetically at most salons and hair specialists. However, it’s important that you understand they will require replacement over time. For most extensions, they require changing or replacement every few weeks, and wigs can also last you for a few years at a time, with proper care.

4.     Scalp micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation is one of the most popular methods of hair replacement on the market. It’s non-invasive and does a great job of concealing thinning. Not only is it generally safe, but it also shows the effect almost immediately. While it doesn’t act as hair growth or replacement treatment, it works by replicating the appearance of hair follicles on the scalp.

Among these, the least invasive, most cost-effective, and easily accessible treatment remains scalp micropigmentation treatment. SMP treatment such as that offered by Delaware Scalp Micropigmentation is highly effective for those who want to give the appearance of a fuller, thicker head of hair, be it men or women. It helps restore the hairline and replicate hair follicles to give the appearance of thicker, denser hair. You can learn more about it here, or contact the clinic to know more.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
