A condition known as alopecia affects young people and results in total hair loss on the entire body. In severe cases, the patients often go through a regimen of hair regrowth systems in attempts to stop the hair loss, such as taking cortisone treatments and different types of therapy.
Such hair growth systems are all performed under a doctor's care and in a hospital setting. In addition, hair replacement systems also work for people who do not have an underlying medical cause for the hair loss, but these are also down by a medical doctor.
Basically there are three types of hair growth systems that people experiencing hair loss can use. The first is to use topical solutions, prescribed by the doctor. With these hair regrowth systems you have to apply the solution to your scalp twice a day. The results of hair regrowth using this method are promising, but they do not work for everyone.
About 5% of people using the solutions did not see a difference at all. The problem with using this method is often the side effects such as weakness or low blood pressure that could be very harmful. This is why these hair growth systems are only used under a doctor's care.
There are also surgical hair replacement systems. You can have strands of hair grafted into your scalp where one or two strands of hair are shot into your scalp with a needle for hair regrowth. Some patients have resorted to having scalp reduction surgery so that the bald spot on the top of the head does not appear to be as large. Another hair growth system that requires surgery is the flap method where areas of hair from the back and the sides of the head are rotated to the bald spots. This method of hair growth is the most complicated of all and a lot of bleeding could occur.
The least complicated hair growth system is to wear a wig. You can style it whatever way you want, color it when you want and take it off whenever you want.
Hair growth systems are often very good, but you need to find out exactly what it is you need for your condition.
