Stopping Hair Loss
Guides & Articles
Most of us grow up thinking that shaving – whether it’s our mustache or our heads – can make hair thicker. Unfortunately, this isn’t true. If you want to make your hair thicker, you have two options. You can make hair appear thicker by using certain haircare products, or you can actually try to grow thicker, stronger hairs.
At the moment, there are three different FDA-approved hair loss treatments available for people with androgenic alopecia: minoxidil, finasteride, and low-level laser therapy. However, there are many more hair loss products available on the market. Some of these are legitimate solutions being researched in clinical trials, while others are little more than snake oil.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is an FDA-approved hair loss treatment. It’s a noninvasive procedure that applies red, near-infrared, or infrared laser light to the scalp to stimulate hair growth. LLLT is typically applied through devices, like combs, brushes, and caps. Treatments can be obtained at clinics, or you can do them yourself at home.
