If you want a hair loss product that offers a 100 percent proven, money back guaranteed solution, you will find one on the internet. But if you want a hair loss treatment that works, that’s another thing entirely. Of course some hair loss treatments work but unfortunately you can’t trust them all. Some may have testimonies from satisfied customers, claims of clinical testing and cheap, enticing offers but despite all this, the fact is that a lot of of what is sold on the internet is completely useless.
Anyone can make convincing allegations about fake hair loss products and get away with it on the internet because unlike TV and print media who have to adhere to the Advertising Standards Authority, there are no strict rules and regulations regarding the advertising of such claims. There is no law that states clinical evidence is needed to verify any claims made on the internet and even if there was such a law in the UK, web sites can operate from anywhere in the world so fraudulent web sites would still get away with false advertising.
Hair loss is a problem that needs effective treatment right at the outset to get the best results possible. With hundreds of different hair loss products and remedies floating about the internet it can be hard to know what or who to trust. Remember this – only products which have been tested over many years by reputable organisations should be considered for the treatment for hair loss.
Two medications have been approved and one device has been cleared by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) for the treatment of hair loss. The organisation which is known to be one of the strictest and most thorough drug approval authorities in the world subjects anything that is brought before them not only to testing for safety but also for effectiveness. Drugs that cannot be proven to work are not allowed to be sold in pharmacies.
However this can be half the problem. A lot of hair loss sufferers would prefer to deal with the problem discreetly rather that discus the problem with a pharmacist at the counter. A confidential consultation with a trichologist at a reputable hair clinic will not only provide you with an effective hair loss treatment but with a greater understanding about the hair loss condition itself. An online diagnosis is even available for those who are not able to travel to the centre. A doctor from the UK can prescribe FDA approved medication which can be dispatched from a UK pharmacy and delivered to your door.
The most prescribed and most effective hair loss medication for men is Propecia which is presently being used by millions of men around the globe. It cannot be disputed that clinical trials involving thousands of men over a decade in different parts of the world have proved it to be the most effective individual treatment for male hair loss.
The other hair loss medication approved for use by the FDA is minoxidil, the most effective topical solution for hair loss. There are many alternative topical solutions marketed for hair loss but no others that are medically proven, or approved by the FDA. The results of minoxidil are maximised when combined with one or more medically proven treatments.
The HairMax Laser Comb is the most recent addition to the FDA’s approved, or cleared, treatments for hair loss. Whilst it may not be as effective at preventing baldness or stopping thinning hair, it encourages hair growth and makes the hair stronger when combined with the above treatments.
If you use a hair loss product or remedy which has not been subjected to clinical testing by the FDA there’s a good chance you are wasting your time. Supplements, vitamins and changing your diet will not reverse the effects of genetic hair loss and very rarely will it go away on its own. The sooner you act the more likely these medically proven treatments will work for you.
