Welcome to the website for Online Hair Solutions. We are about more than hair loss. This website deals with anything relating to hair, skin and nails.
Men who experience hair loss are well aware of the many ways to tackle this issue, whether it be shaving their head, using toupees, creams or even resorting to surgery. Although the latter may appear to be the most extreme way of treating hair loss, reports are now coming to state that surgical procedures are increasing.
The most recent study to come out regarding this issue is a survey that was conducted by WhatClinic.com, which found that compared to last year there were increases of enquiries about hair transplants and men going abroad to receive this treatment. While the former had an increase of 260%, the latter had an increase of 180%. The most prominent feature of this survey was was reported in Huffington post. However, upon inspecting the source (Whatclinic.com) it was difficult to gain further insight into how it was carried out and what type of participants had taken part.
Yet, without having sufficient evidence to support these results, it cannot be denied that the findings pose several interesting questions. For instance, are hair transplants becoming more common or are they simply more publicised? Whilst the topic may have been taboo for other generations, we have witnessed the discussion of hair loss to become more prominent in mainstream media. One example of that is football star Wayne Rooney discussing his hair transplant procedure.
Similarly, if surveys are coming out to suggest that more men are enquiring about hair transplants, does it translate to getting the procedures as well? It may very well be that men who enquire about hair transplants are also enquiring about Propecia at the same time and then chose the treatment that is relevant at that time.
Indeed, as pointed out by the expert in the Huffington post article, factors such as young age, the pattern of hair loss and amount of donor hair may affect the persons eligibility for a hair transplant. In those cases, treatments that have finasteride may be more suitable.
Whichever treatment an individual chooses, it is important to do the research relating to its potential risks. We would urge anyone considering hair loss treatments to read up on what products and procedures are regulated and weigh up any effects it may have on their health before committing to the treatment.
