New Approaches to Thinning Hair

Hair Loss Treatments Photo - LocateADoc.comNo matter your age, it can always be difficult to face the fact that you are losing hair. Some individuals find that their baldness causes them to lose confidence in themselves and damages their relationships with others. Luckily, there are some new innovations on the market today that can help those who are seeing their hairline recede.

Current research into men’s health and baldness is taking a new direction. Researchers are using individuals’ hair cells to regenerate hair. This method, called 3-D spheroids, has garnered a lot of attention, as it has demonstrated hair growth in mice. Another promising lead in hair growth is the effects of the stress hormone corticotropin-releasing factor, or CRF. Scientists have discovered that when this hormone is blocked, baldness is reduced in mice.

Lastly, a medicine that has been garnering a lot of attention lately is Latisse. Originally, the drug was developed to treat individuals who have glaucoma. It was observed that a side effect of the drug was a thickening of the eyelashes. Doctors are now experimenting with the drug to determine if it could also be used to treat baldness.

There are many scientists across the country and the world who are investigating ways to treat or prevent hair loss. With so many promising leads, many are hoping that condition will be fully treatable in the next few years.
