Hair loss in men and women is much more common than one imagines. More than 80% of the people at some stage in their lives are affected by it. In men, the appearance of hair loss is far more obvious. It can leave the appearance less than very best. The main cause behind hair loss is a genetic condition known as Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. To counter the problem, a hair transplant surgery is an ideal solution.
However, not everyone is comfortable going under the knife and people often seek less invasive procedure. There are many non-surgical hair restoration options to treat hair loss in Saudi Arabia that can be used. Their results are quite impressive and allow greater hair coverage on the scalp. Let’s learn about these options briefly below:
Hair restoration medications
There are a couple of options in terms of medications for countering hair loss. Finasteride is an oral medication which can help in not only stop hair loss but also grow hair back in many cases. The medication needs to be used on long term basis to maintain the results.
Minoxidil, on the other hand, is a topical solution that is applied to the scalp in order to stop hair loss. It is really effective in stopping hair loss. In a small percentage of users, hair restoration may also take place. Much like other medications, it has to be used permanently to maintain results.
But the downside of these quite effective hair loss medications is that in the longer run, they can have fairly serious side effects.
The treatment works with a conglomerate of FDA approved drugs, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and homeopathic drugs being injected into the scalp in small quantities with the help of a specialized injector. The nutrition injected not only allows the follicles to strengthen up but also increases the scalp circulation.
The results from the treatment can be observed in a short period of time. To get the best out of the treatment, it has to be repeated a few times. It is important to keep in mind that the treatment is ideal for thinning hair and cannot be effective on completely bald patches.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is one of the more useful non-surgical hair replacement in KSA. A blood sample is taken from the treatment seeker and is centrifuged in a special apparatus to get platelet rich plasma (PRP). The growth factor-enriched PRP is injected into the affected areas of the scalp to allow greater nutrition to the follicles.
The results take a few months to fully show but they last for a long time. Generally 5 to 6 treatment sessions are needed in order to get the best results. Like mesotherapy, PRP also works best on thinning hair and has no effect on entirely bald patches. For a completely bald thatch, hair transplant in Saudi Arabia is recommended.
