Patient Comments: Hair Loss - Options

What optional treatments have you tried for your hair loss? Are you happy with the results?

I used a contraceptive pill called Diane-35. It cleared my acne and slowly brought my hair back from a very thin and balding state. I was ecstatic with the results!

I had a hair loss experience when I was 25. I had to undergo a surgery for the same. Hair transplantation surgery helped me regain my hair back.

I wanted to improve my hairline with hair restoration. My husband has fixed an appointment in a hair restoration center. I hope it is a right decision. I don's desire to take any risk.
