For many people, hair loss and balding is an unwanted but unavoidable part of life, whether it is from genetic conditions such as Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss, or auto-immune conditions such as Alopecia Areata. But while you might not have control over whether you develop these conditions or not, you most certainly do have a choice when it comes to being proactive and seeking treatment for your hair loss.
Here are five hair loss treatments that have been proven to work. However, in many instances it is not simply a case of picking a single treatment, but combining a number of complementary treatments to achieve optimal results. A hair loss expert, such as those at The Belgravia Centre, will be able to advise you of the best course of action for your specific type of hair loss.
Diagnosis might not seem like a treatment at first glance, but in many respects it is the most important treatment, and the first step to overcoming hair loss. A sound diagnosis will tell you, and those treating you, exactly what type of hair loss condition you are suffering from. Once you know the nature of and reasons for your hair loss, treatments can be targeted accordingly.
Propecia has been scientifically proven to work in the treatment of Male Pattern Baldness, and along with Minoxidil it is one of only two pharmaceutical treatments which have been licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for this purpose. It works by inhibiting the production of dihyrdrotestosterone in the body – the hormone derivative responsible for genetic hair loss. At The Belgravia Centre we have also found it effective in the treatment of Alopecia and other hair loss conditions.
Minoxidil is the other pharmaceutical which is licensed by the MHRA for Male Pattern Baldness, and unlike Propecia it can be used to treat hair loss in women. The exact reasons why it works are unknown, but it is thought to help open up potassium channels in the scalp and allow nutrients to flow to the follicles more freely.
The HairMax LaserComb has been cleared by the US Food and Drug Adminstration (the equivalent of the UK’s MHRA) for the treatment of hair loss on the scalp. It is a handheld device which works by using low-level laser light to stimulate and stabilise the follicles and promote re-growth. A LaserComb is often included as a hair growth booster with many treatment courses from Belgravia.
A balanced diet
A healthy balanced diet is necessary for all elements of human health, and the hair is no exception. In order to grow properly, hair requires a wide variety of minerals and nutrients. The Belgravia Centre offers a special dietary supplement with herbs and vitamins which has been designed to provide the body with many of the nutrients it needs for healthy hair. This is our Hair Vitalics Natural Hair Supplement. We recommend that this is used as a booster to the primary hair loss treatments we offer.
At The Belgravia Centre we use all of these as tools in a personally-tailored strategy of hair loss stabilisation and re-growth. To get access to these, and expert advice and diagnosis, contact us at the Belgravia Centre to arrange a consultation, or fill in our online diagnostic form for a home-use treatment programme that can be shipped globally.
