Do I Have to Use Medical Hair Loss Treatments after Hair Transplant?

Hair Loss Treatments

In order to counter hair loss, many medications are available. Most commonly used ones are Finasteride and Minoxidil. The former is an oral drug that needs to be taken on a daily basis. It not only improves the health of existing follicles but also helps in regrowth of lost hair in a large number of cases. Minoxidil is a solution applied to the scalp. It works well in stopping hair loss but the regrowth of lost hair is rare. Both these options have their side effects.

Many people using them eventually opt for hair transplants for want of a permanent solution. The most common question they ask is that whether or not they will need to use their hair loss treatments in future or not once they get the transplant. The answer to this question is both Yes and No. Let’s shed some light on this matter to understand better.

How Hair Transplants Work

Hair loss is most commonly caused by androgenic alopecia which is a genetic condition. It is caused by the presence of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is a male hormone. The hair transplants are done with hair from the side and the back of the head which have resistance towards the effects of DHT.

The hair are extracted from these donor areas and grafted at the recipient site where small incisions are made for this purpose. Once this is done, the hair grow out in about a year and they do not suffer loss.

Further Hair Loss after a Transplant

Hair loss after a hair transplant can take place. Since it is only the transplanted hair that are resistant to DHT, the normal hair continue to be affected by it. This has no relationship with the hair transplant and it is a completely natural procedure.

Use of Hair Loss Products

The use of hair loss product is not required in the areas where the transplant has been done. However, the other areas of the scalp where the natural hair are present, for ensuring that the hair do not fall, continuing the hair loss treatment is certainly not a bad idea. Consulting with your hair transplant surgeon in this regard is the way forward as he or she can better advise considering your individual requirements.
