Hair replacement options: when is non surgical hair replacement a viable option?
If you feel squeamish about surgery, you are probably wondering about non-surgical hair replacement options. Depending on the cause of your hair loss, you may find that improving your nutrition, reducing stress levels, and treating undiagnosed illnesses or vitamin deficiencies may allow your hair to grow back. However, if your hair loss is caused by alopecia, you are less likely to find success with these non-surgical hair replacement techniques.
There are two main medications used as a treatment for baldness: Minoxidil (commonly known as Rogaine) and Finasteride. Other hair replacement options include laser combs and laser therapy at your physician’s office, although these hair loss cures have varying levels of success from one individual to another. Finally, if none of this works and you are set on avoiding surgery, you may consider experimenting with flattering hairstyles or simply shaving off the rest of your hair for a stylish new look.
The interaction between laser light and living tissue is defined as photobiology. Photobiology can be subdivided into laser-tissue reactions defined as photochemistry and photophysics—that is, stimulation of chemical or physical reactions by laser light.
