About Me

Skin Trouble Solutions: Caring For Problem Skin As a young child, I had a lot of skin allergies, eczema, and rashes. It made my childhood difficult. As I got older, those skin problems turned into severe acne and sensitive skin. I spent years learning about how to treat my skin to minimize the effects of these things. There are natural treatments, dietary changes, and even dermatology treatments that can help. I don't want to see others suffer the way that I did with skin problems like these, so I created this site to help teach others about the things that I've learned. I hope that the information here helps you to care for your skin and minimize your rashes and issues.



Keep Losing Your Hair? 2 Hair Loss Treatments Available To Get Your Hair Back Again

If you keep losing hair, there are hair loss treatments available to get the hair back again. Below is information about what can cause hair loss, as well as information about treatments you can choose from.  

Causes of Hair Loss

Common causes of hair loss are getting older and having a family history of it. This is known as androgenic alopecia and can happen in both males and females. If you have this type of hair loss it generally starts gradually and gets worse over time. If you are a man, you may notice a receding hairline. If you are a woman, you may notice you are losing hair on the crown of your scalp. 

There are medical conditions that can cause hair loss that may be temporary or permanent. For example, if you are going through menopause, changes in hormones can cause hair loss. You may also have a medical condition known as alopecia areata, which is an immune disease. You may have ringworm on your scalp and not be aware of it. Some medications may cause hair loss. For example, if you take medication for high blood pressure, depression, arthritis, or cancer, talk with your doctor about your hair loss. 

Hair Loss Treatment Options

See a dermatologist for hair loss treatment. They may start you out taking medications to see if this helps. Minoxidil is an over-the-counter medication that comes in shampoo, foam, or liquid form. Your dermatologist may prescribe you something stronger than an over-the-counter product. Using this type of treatment generally takes a few months to see full results. 

If medications are not working for you, your dermatologist may suggest getting a hair transplant. This is a surgery so you will be given local anesthesia and sedation. You will need to go to a cosmetic surgeon for this treatment. During the surgery, the surgeon removes hair from a part of your head where there is thick hair and then transplants that hair to the bald spot. The doctor may take small areas or strips of your scalp to transplant. This is a painful surgery, and you will have swelling, bruising, and bleeding for a few weeks. 

Laser therapy is another treatment offered. The doctor uses a low-level laser, which is often referred to as cold laser therapy and red light therapy. The laser irradiates photons in your scalp which encourages new hair to grow. Using laser therapy is much less invasive than surgery and can be done in the doctor's office.
