CURRENT AND FUTURE WAYS OF COMBATING HAIR LOSS BY DR. ALEX KHADAVI
I became concerned about my own thinning hair when I started balding at the age of 20. The only product available at that time for treating hair loss was Rogaine, and the results left a lot to be desired.
Learning that dihydrotestorsterone, or DHT, was the key hormone responsible for the chain of events that leads to hair loss, started my journey for finding a way to combat hair loss. This lead to the development of Revivogen, and over the last decade, we’ve made constant improvements to ensure the most effective formula is being made available to our clients.
Whether it’s Revivogen or other technology for hair loss prevention, efforts to combat baldness have come a long way, and the future looks interesting. Gene manipulation for hair loss is currently being studied, where researchers are trying find out why a certain switch turns off the hair cycle.
Let’s go back in time now. In 1939 Japanese dermatologist, Dr. Okuda, published his method for using hair transplant grafts to correct lost hair from the scalp, eyebrow, and moustache areas. Twenty years later, the punch graft technique was created. This technique created a lot of unnatural looking hairlines. Now there’s mini and micro grafting, a technique used so hairlines and the rest of the scalp can look more natural.
However, there’s still the challenge of having a limited amount of donor hair to use. Luckily, one day, cloning hair follicles could enable doctors to have an unlimited amount of hair to transplant.
Currently, Finasteride, the generic name for the drug Propecia is available with prescription. As with any oral synthetic drug, there are possible side effects. There is a topical formula of Finasteride that has been shown to improve hair re-growth and stop hair loss when applied to the scalp in men. This is something that could be available in the future.
Laser therapy is a treatment that’s available now. This is a technique where a certain type of level laser is used on the scalp, increasing blood flow to the follicle. This helps to stabilize further progression of hair loss, as well as to re-grow hair.
So these are some of your options for combating hair loss, and you can see the future looks promising. But, instead of waiting for the future, look at what you can do now to assist in your own situation. The earlier you start conserving the hair follicles you have left, the more successful you will be in your efforts.
