Means against hair loss (baldness)

Physiotherapy methods for the treatment of alopecia

Electrostatic and electromagnetic fields have long and successfully been used for the healing of soft tissue wounds and bone fusion. As a side effect, hair growth was shown to increase in areas of the skin subjected to electrophysiotherapy.

Surgical treatment of normal alopecia

The method consists in transplanting androgen-resistant hair from the lateral and occipital areas of the head to areas of hair thinning or alopecia. Each implant (graft) contains from 1 to 5 hair bulbs (follicles).

Antiandrogens as a remedy for hair loss

In connection with the establishment of the key role of androgens in the development of normal baldness and manifestations of the syndrome of hyperandrogenism, in the treatment of these diseases substances with antiandrogenic properties are used.

Means that stimulate hair growth

Tricomin, a copper-peptide complex designed for topical application, was tested in 18 men with type V (according to J. Gamilton) of normal alopecia. Twice a day for 6 months, 2% and 10% gel were applied to the areas of baldness. In patients who used 10% gel with tricomin, more active hair growth was noted.

Combined treatment with minoxidil and retinoids

Experience has shown that some retinoids can influence the speed of hair growth, extending the anagen phase and shortening the telogen phase. These drugs independently stimulate hair growth, and also increase the clinical effectiveness of minoxidil.


Many drugs of systemic action, prescribed for various reasons, can cause common hypertrichosis as a side effect, and also positively affect the hair condition on the scalp (benoxaprofen, cyclosporin A, PUVA), but their targeted systemic use in conventional baldness is unreasonable, for undesirable complications.

Treatment of diffuse (symptomatic) alopecia

The prognosis of diffuse (symptomatic) alopecia is favorable in those cases when it is possible to establish the cause of hair loss and eliminating it. Usually when interviewing a patient, it is easy to find out the cause of the acute onset of alopecia (childbirth, infectious diseases, myocardial infarction, blood loss, starvation, cytostatic and radiation therapy, and many others.
