How To Find The Best Hair Loss Treatment in San Mateo County
The state of California does not require hair loss treatments in San Mateo County CA to have a state license, so there's no state standard for competency and safety, except in the case of hair transplant surgery, and other instances of medical hair restoration in which case a standard medical license is required.
But even in those instances of a license for surgical hair replacement, the license is no guarantee that any particular company for hair replacement in San Mateo County CA is doing business honestly, delivering value, or satisfying clients.
This makes it all the more significant that all treatments for hair replacement in San Mateo County CA that bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous patients or clients to verify high satisfaction with the results received, good complaint record, best business practices, verified liability insurance, sufficient time in business, and more.
Options in Hair Loss Treatments
As men age their hair follicles develop sensitivity to the sex hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT kills these newly sensitive hair follicles over time. Hair loss can effect a person's self-image and how others perceive him, thus possibly effecting career and income, as well as romantic life.
Hair replacement therapies can restore hair or prevent hair loss from continuing.
You'll get the best results by using an expert who can evaluate your type and degree of hair loss, explain your options, and then oversee the treatment of your choice. There are many products available for sale but some can be a waste of money and some have side-effects. Always consult with a professional before undertaking any of the following kinds of hair loss treatment.
There are five major approaches to stopping or reversing hair loss:
DHT Inhibitors - The body is prevented from converting some testosterone into the hair-harming DHT. Can be oral or topical. Propecia (finasteride) is the most commonly known product in this category.
Androgen Blockers - DHT is still produced by the body but it is blocked from reaching the hair follicles.
Hair Growth Stimulant - Encouraging the natural growth of new hair. Rogaine (minoxidil) is the most commonly known product in this category.
Surgical Hair Replacement - The patient's own hair is moved from where it still grows to areas of hair loss.
Non-Surgical Hair Replacement - Also known as artificial hair replacement, hairpieces or toupees. Hair pieces may be made of artificial hair or natural hair. The hair is tied to monofilament material or the hair is fused to a thin base of high-tech plastic material similar to plastic wrap. There are different ways the hair piece is attached to the head, many allowing the hair piece to be worn in the shower, while swimming, sleeping or playing sports. The hair piece is usually removed and fitted for reattachment every 2 to 4 weeks. Cost may vary anywhere from $500 to $5,000 based on the type of hair they're made from. Consult with a specialist in artificial hair pieces in San Mateo County to find one where the performance and attachment method meet your current lifestyle, and who can explain the proper maintenance care and expected lifespan of the options in hair pieces.
This kind of non-surgical hair replacement is often considered the best option for cases of advanced hair loss, where the balding area is too great, and the remaining hair-growing area too small to serve as a surgical donor area for surgical hair transplants or for the other surgical hair replacement methods.

Scalp Expansion Surgery:
