Understanding the biology of hair is critical as physicians and scientists consider new hair loss therapies and treatments. For consumers, this means the opportunity to treat various stages of hair loss in advance of and during hair restoration surgery.
The history of hair restoration goes back many years prior to the founding of the ISHRS more than 23 years ago. As a result, we have to recognize the contributions that many physicians have made to the advancement of our society.

One of your options is a medical approach to hair restoration—using one of the hair restoration medications that are offered with a claim to stop loss of hair and stimulate hair regrowth.
