Can Hair Loss Treatment Cause Hair Loss?

 

There are a multitude of hair loss treatment programmes available but only 3 are FDA certified to show a benefit in tackling hair loss; it is always important to take professional advice before starting any type of treatment or medicated programme

Genetic hair loss, male or female pattern baldness can be treated to a degree but it will not be able to grow hair back, simply preserve the hair growth and possibly improve on the thickness and calibre, sometimes to great effect

With any treatment there can be side-effects, drugs or natural remedies so it is important to be informed of these effects prior to starting

A common side-effect of one well known topical treatment that is FDA approved is the initial shedding of hair in the first months of use; this can obviously cause great concern and alarm if not known can occur

The reason is thought to be due to the treatment changing the hair growth cycle, interrupting the pattern of hair growth and creates a shedding pattern. Over time this does calm down and the shedding pattern returns to normal

Also it is important to note that treatments, assuming they have a positive response only works while you are using them; they are not miracle cures for genetic hair loss. Once stopped the hair loss pattern and shedding will continue

In some cases the pattern of hair loss increases rapidly, as if trying to catch up with the pattern of loss you should be suffering if you had never used medications in the first place; a possible way to stop this is rather than stopping dead slow down the usage of the treatment over a period of time

As hair loss can be unpredictable so can medications and no specific result can be promised, they need to be used correctly and for a minimum period of around 12 months to judge their effectiveness. Do not expect to lower hair lines or fill in large areas of hair loss, but with realistic expectations hair loss meds can be a viable answer
