Hair loss affects 50 million men and women in the US alone. Unfortunately, many risk factors accelerate baldness, including genetics, aging, poor habits, etc. Although alopecia creams and ointments may help slow down baldness, these products cannot prevent hair loss completely. But surgical and nonsurgical hair loss solutions may restore a full head of hair permanently.
Bosley is a hair restoration company that offers invasive and non-invasive hair loss treatments for men and women alike. The company has performed almost 250,000 hair transplant procedures among patients who suffer from hair loss and progressive baldness in more than 60 different nations.
Types of Bosley Hair Restoration Treatments
Bosley Hair Transplant
Bosley’s hair transplantation is a restoration process that provides permanent treatment for hair loss. It’s suitable for men and women who are suffering from different stages of progressive balding. This treatment helps restore a receding hairline, prevent bald spots and restore thickness on thinning hair.
Studies show that hormone DHT is linked to hair loss in both men and women. This hormone breaks down the hair strands, leading to breakage and hair thinning. In hair transplantation, the surgeon will attach hair follicles that are resistant to the effects of the hormone DHT.
Do note that although hair transplantation may effectively slow down hair loss, Bosley’s hair transplantation cannot stop genetic hair loss such as male and female pattern baldness. In fact, any hair restoration treatments cannot prevent genetic baldness because this is a progressive condition. Usually, a hair transplantation is the last option for individuals who suffer from severe hair loss.
Bosley LaserComb® Elite
According to Bosley’s official website, this is the only hair loss treatment that’s approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. It works by using laser energy over balding areas of the scalp to stimulate hair follicles and boost re-growth. Bosley LaserComb® Elite is an excellent hair loss treatment for people who suffer from early-stage baldness. Although Bosley LaserComb® Elite is not meant to treat advanced hair loss, it can be used as a pre-operative and/or post-operative treatment for hair restoration surgeries.
Bosley Professional Strength
Bosley Professional Strength is a hair restoration system that reduces thinning hair and prevents hair loss in 5 simple steps. The system has a specific formula for men and women. The products are formulated with ingredients that help restore hair thickness, stimulate follicles and boost hair re-growth.
The Bosley Professional Strength for Men is an FDA-approved hair restoration system formulated with 5% Minoxidil. The system comes with a 6-month treatment kit. According to Bosley’s own clinical testing, this product can stimulate hair regrowth within 4 to 6 months. However, consistent application must be done to achieve the desired result.
Propecia® is an FDA-approved prescription medication that prevents hair loss. The drug works by inhibiting the formation of DHT hormone that weakens the hair strands. The medication also stops the formation of DHT hormone. This drug is not approved for use by women. It should be taken on a daily basis to achieve the desired result.
