When searching for an effective hair loss treatment, people should be on guard. We all learnt early on that you can’t believe everything you read; people can easily distort fact. And we know you can’t believe what you hear on TV; customer testimonials can be fabricated. Now we’re realising the internet isn’t wholly reliable either; Photoshop opens a window of opportunity. With the availability of such strong marketing tools, how do we truly know how effective hair loss treatments are?
We know how difficult it is to find a hair loss product that meets your expectations. Unfortunately there aren’t any strict regulations for cosmetic companies or the internet, which is why a lot of manufacturers can produce a range of products and get away with saying whatever they like about them. But there are effective hair loss treatments that provide millions with a way of preventing baldness and reversing the effects of thinning hair.
So long as the treatment is FDA or MHRA approved and you are a suitable candidate, you’ve got a good chance of seeing some impressive results. The FDA and MHRA are both medical regulatory bodies that review the effectiveness of a particular treatment while ensuring it is safe to administer. Propecia and minoxidil are the only products that are licensed for the treatment of hair loss, though you’re probably aware there are many more that claim to be the number one cure. This is when people become disappointed.
There is no single cure for hair loss because there are many factors that can cause thinning or baldness. Sometimes, treatment is not even necessary. Depending on the cause, hair is able to grow back on its own. For instance, undergoing surgery can be a shock to the system and result in temporary hair loss, but it’s a one-off stress and any hair that’s lost is likely to re-grow within a few months when the body recovers. Other times, hair loss is a genetic condition that needs early, continuous and effective treatment to maintain hair growth.
The effective treatments for hair loss should in most cases be able to stabilise shedding or thinning hair and stimulate renewed hair growth. Through extensive clinical studies, Propecia has shown to stop the balding process in 83% of men, re-grow hair in 66% and improve the overall appearance of hair in 80% of men. Minoxidil also proved to stabilise hair loss in 65% of people, and generate moderate to dense re-growth in 54% of people. Because no two heads of hair are the same, The Belgravia Centre, who for more than 20 years has specialised in nothing but hair loss and scalp care, tailors their hair loss treatment programs for each individual but bases all its courses around these two licensed products.
