Can Hair Loss really be Treated with Medication?

Effective treatments with medication for some types of hair loss such as pattern (hereditary) baldness are available. You might be able to slow down your hair fall or also you can reverse it. Surgery And Medication, are the two options available for treating hair loss. Let us discuss both in detail;


If you have hair loss as a result of an underlying condition, it is necessary that you get that disease addressed in order to prevent hair loss. If the hair loss is due to any medication, you should stop that medication for some time after consulting with your doctor.

Minoxidil (Rogaine)

Products with minoxidil have helped many people to get their hair back by regrowing them or by slowing down the rate of hair loss or both. It will take at least six months for the medication to show results.

Scalp discomfort and undesired hair growth on the adjacent skin of the face and hands are two possible adverse effects.

Finasteride (Propecia)

This is a prescription drug for men and is in a form of an oral pill. Reduced hair loss and growth of new hairs have been reported by many men who take finasteride. It may take a few months to show results for you. Finasteride may not be that effective for those men who are over 60.

Reduced sex drive and sexual function, as well as an increased risk of prostate cancer, are rare adverse effects. Women who are pregnant should avoid touching crushed or broken finasteride tablets.

Other medications

Other oral pills include spironolactone and oral dutasteride.


Hair transplant surgery

In the case of permanent hair loss, where only the top of the head is affected. Hair transplant in Raipur or restoration surgery is taken into consideration by the doctor.

In the hair transplant procedure, hair is removed from a hair-growing area of the head and transplanted to a bald place by a cosmetic surgeon. The patch of hair that is taken out by a surgeon has one to several hairs called micrograft and minigraft. Sometimes doctor prefers to take out a larger strip of skin that contains multiple hairs to perform the surgery. Hospitalization is not required for this procedure, but the procedure is painful so you are given a sedation medicine so that it can ease any discomfort. Possible risks included bleeding, swelling, bruising, and infection.

This procedure includes two techniques mainly FUE and FUT. Hair Transplant cost in Raipur is quite reasonable.

Laser therapy

A low-level device to perform laser therapy is now approved by The Food and Drug Administration for those whose hair fall issues are hereditary in men and women. Laser therapy is helpful in improving hair density according to some studies. It needs a more detailed study to show long-term effects

PRP Treatment

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical procedure in which blood is drawn, processed, and injected into the scalp. The cost of PRP Hair Treatment in Raipur is reasonable.

According to some doctors, PRP injections stimulate and sustain natural hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.

Now the main question is whether only medication can cure hair fall or not.

Medical treatment alone is unlikely to provide adequate outcomes for those with advanced hair loss problems. They may be able to keep their existing hair, but if they have substantial balding, hair transplant surgery is the only way to restore hair to those bald regions. In such circumstances, medicinal therapy, in conjunction with surgery, may prove to be a useful technique for avoiding additional baldness.
