The Difference: Hair Restoration Procedures vs Hair Growth Products

Hair Growth Products

Despite what you may have read online, there is no “magic pill” for hair growth. If stopping hair loss was as simple as taking a pill, everyone would have a full head of hair.

As of today, there are only two products approved by the FDA for treating hair loss; Yes, Minoxidil or better known as Rogaine is one of them and can be found over-the-counter.  Rogaine can help combat thinning hair, but is it enough?

Propecia has shown its effectiveness in many clinical trials to regrow hair in men and some women, while Rogaine can significantly slow down hair loss and can encourage the growth of new hairs. When combined, Propecia and Rogaine can make a noticeable difference for those experiencing mild to moderate hair loss.

Hair Restoration Procedures

Opposed to hair growth products, hair restoration procedures including hair transplants do not seek to solve or target the underlying causes of hair loss. Rather, a hair restoration surgery takes your own healthy donor hair – natural hair from the back and sides of the scalp and transplants them in receding hairlines and bald spots of concern.   Houston Hair Loss Clinic has treatment options available that can help.  Such as, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy have also been shown to make a compelling difference in hair loss and balding in both men and women.

The Comparisons

In a sense, comparing products vs. procedures is like comparing apples to oranges. They have different effects and solutions in treating hair loss. Hair growth products like Minoxidil/Rogaine can make an impact as you start to notice your hair thinning.

The main goals with these products are to PREVENT hair loss in its earlier stages.  For best results, you’ll want to begin treatment at the onset of hair loss to stop it in its tracks.  That’s where Houston Hair Loss Clinic comes in.
