Non-surgical hair loss treatments verses Hair Transplant Surgery

Question:

What is the difference between non-surgical and surgical hair? What are the costs?

Answer:

I'm not sure what you mean by "non-surgical" hair. However, no non-surgical hair loss treatment is proven to grow new hair. Drugs like Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) can help stop future hair loss and strengthen existing thinning hair. Hair replacement systems and strand by strand techniques can conceal your baldness and make it appear like you have real hair.

Surgical hair restoration is a procedure of moving hair from the sides and back of your head and implanting living follicles into the balding areas so they grow. Surgical hair restoration can range from $3 to $10 per follicular unit graft depending on the hair transplant clinic you select and the type of procedure you choose (FUT or FUE).
