Hair restoration


Hair restoration is a term that covers a number of methods used to restore hair to balding areas. Hair restoration may involve topical, oral, and surgical treatments. These procedures are designed to restore or improve the natural hairline in those who suffer from male pattern baldness and other conditions resulting in hair loss. Baldness refers to excessive hair loss from the scalp and may be the result of inherited traits, certain medications, or an underlying medical condition. Adults as well as children may experience hair loss or alopecia. Increasingly, women as well as men are using medications to treat their hair loss. The variety of drugs available is expanding as the cost becomes more affordable.
