Up to 6.8 million people in the United States currently suffer from alopecia. Are you one of them?
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed or frustrated when you’re struggling with hair loss. You might even have noticed that your confidence has waned and you’re less inclined to go out or spend time with your friends.
If you want to regain your confidence without turning to expensive surgical procedures, you’re in luck.
Listed below are five non-surgical hair restoration treatments that you can turn to today to camouflage your hair loss.
Scalp micropigmentation is a type of semi-permanent makeup that is similar to a scalp tattoo. It involves the use of special, organic ink and unique techniques and tools to cover up the appearance of hair loss.
Scalp micropigmentation is not as deep as a traditional tattoo, and you can use it to cover up baldness or add density to thinning hair. Each treatment is specifically tailored to your skin color and skin type. This ensures the end result is as natural-looking as possible.
Low-level hair therapy uses advanced laser technology to stimulate the hair follicles.
This stimulation helps to encourage proper hair follicle function and promotes hair regrowth and restoration. Many people report improvements in their hair thickness and length after undergoing this treatment.
Low-level hair therapy appears to be especially beneficial for treating androgenetic alopecia. One study found that it improved hair counts by 37 percent.
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of a special tool to create small wounds in the skin.
Microneedling of the scalp creates small wounds on the scalp with the intent of triggering new cell production. These new cells contain healthy hair follicles and can lead to the regrowth of strong, healthy hair.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses your own blood to stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair growth.
To make platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, your doctor will take your blood and spin it in a special machine to separate the platelets from other cells. The platelets, which are rich in special proteins known as growth factors, are then placed back into the liquid part of the blood (known as the plasma).
When this process is complete, the doctors will inject the PRP into the scalp. This can help the thinning hair to become thicker and fuller.
You might also want to consider red light therapy to restore your hair. Red light therapy is similar to low-level hair therapy, but it uses a red light instead of an LED light.
Like low-level hair therapy, red light therapy helps to stimulate the hair follicles, speed up the healing process, and promote hair regrowth in folks who are dealing with baldness or thinning hair.
As you can see, there are lots of non-surgical hair restoration treatments you can utilize to camouflage hair loss and increase your confidence.
Of all these treatments, one of the most effective is scalp micropigmentation. If you’re interested in giving this treatment a try, or if you just want to learn more about it, we can help at ZangSMP.
