You’re brushing your hair in the morning to get ready for work, conscious that some spots have been a little thinner than usual lately. All of a sudden, your hand touches a BALD spot. Your worst nightmare, right? Well, this nightmare is a reality for millions of women worldwide. (And men too, of course.)
If you are one of the many people affected by bald spots, you know that it really does affect your quality of life. You may be feeling less confident, and just not yourself if you have bald spots. Maybe you just want to hide…
Have you already tried all of the at-home, natural remedies? If you are at the point that you will go to extremes to find a solution for your bald spots, we have the answers you might be looking for.
Growing Hair in Bald Spots
Anthralin is a cream or ointment prescribed by dermatologists that have been proven to regrow hair in as little as 8 weeks. The weird part? It looks like tar.
To regrow hair in bald spots, just apply the tarry substance and let it sit for 30 to 60 minutes. Don’t leave it on any longer than that, because it could irritate your skin. It sounds peculiar, but it’s shown results. In my opinion, it’s worth a try.
2. Steroid Injections
Going more extreme, the next step would be steroid injections. Once a month, your dermatologist injects a corticosteroid all over and around your bald spots with a tiny needle.
The entire process is relatively painless, and by the time you leave the doctor’s office, there is practically no discomfort. When the procedure works, results are seen in as little as 4 weeks.
While the treatment has shown great results for hair regrowth, it won’t prevent future hair loss and bald spots. But, if you have tried everything else and are still searching for results, this may be your solution.
3. Hair Transplant Surgery
Do you have severe hair loss? Maybe you have already tried the previous methods, or you just know already that they won’t restore your relentless bald spots. What’s last step before giving up and wearing a wig? Hair transplant surgery.
It sounds extreme, right? It is. If you do your research and find a fully qualified physician to perform the treatment, hair transplant surgery can be the answer to your hair prayers.
During the procedure, the physician will remove some of your own hair, usually from the back of the scalp, and transplant it into the bald areas. The American Hair Loss Association fully endorses the procedure; as long as you find the right physician.
The procedure really is an art form, so don’t be fooled by flashy marketing and smooth-talking salesmen.
There are only a select few physicians in the US and worldwide that can give you truly beautiful results. But, if this is your last resort, do some investigating and find a gifted hair transplant surgeon to give you the results you’ve been dreaming of.
