Hair fall is natural in females. It is a part of our hair cycle, say the dermatologists. In general, losing 50 to 100 hair strands in a day is normal. But it becomes annoying, (especially after pregnancy and childbirth) to see hair on our bed, comb, in the shower and everywhere. Many of us notice this problem at an early stage and take proper treatments or use home remedies.
But the situation becomes critical for those who ignore and don’t follow proper medication. And pretty soon they start noticing hair thinning and baldness as a result. Sometimes ignorance becomes a regret.
So, is there any latest treatment that helps get hair back on the head?
Yes, there are treatments that give effective results. Advancement in medical technology has made it possible to cure this age old problem.
Here are the Top 5 latest technologies for chronic hair loss:
1. Hair Transplant
Hair transplant also known as hair transplantation or hair restoration is a revolutionary breakthrough. It is a well known and very popular procedure to get a hairy head again. Most of the women who undergo hair transplant get very effective results. Make sure you find an expert to take this surgical treatment.
In hair transplant, hair grafts from highly dense areas are picked up and plugged at areas with lesser hair density. Till now this was considered as the only best and most effective procedure until PRP came up as an alternative nonsurgical method.
2.Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Plasma is blended in our blood that fights against skin infection in our body. In PRP, blood is collected from the patient’s body and inserted into the affected area after processing. The process is still in its testing phase but its results are remarkable.
If you are in the early stage of hair loss and the rate of your hair fall is significantly high then you must try PRP.

FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Approved only medication for female-pattern hair loss is Minoxidil (Rogaine) 5% which is available in both tablet and lotion form (but it is preferred not to use tablets until prescribed by a doctor because of its adverse hormonal effects.) This well-known medication increases hair growth phase which gives more time to hair to grow out to its full density.
4.Spironolactone (50 mg)
This medication is effective in hair fall caused by male hormone androgen. It is strictly advised not to use this during pregnancy. Few reports of the medication’s side effects have also been seen so far. So, it is advised to consult an experienced doctor before using it.
The first thing that gains most of the people’s attention is the region of our head with lesser hair. What if we hide that area (not with hair) without taking any medication and without going for any sort of surgery.
Yes, Scalp Micropigmentation is actually a regular hair tattoo in which pigments are well positioned into head epidermal which creates the illusion of new hair follicles which in turn hides balding areas.
These are the latest possible medical technologies that can stop hair fall and grow new hair. Please make sure that you consult your doctor before trying out any of these technologies or popping in any pills or medicines.
A lot of research work is going on in this field and the results have been quite promising. Let’s hope that the medical sciences come up with a permanent solution soon.
