Hair transplant is a revolutionary breakthrough for serious hair fall and baldness. In hair transplant procedure, tiny hair follicles are removed from the area of high hair density and placed in the bald or balding area.There are various precautions before and after surgery that you need to consult with your doctor first.The results of hair transplant are often excellent and permanent.Hair transplant is a very risky procedure so it is highly advised to consult with reputed doctors only.
Minoxidil the lotion which is the only medication that is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration(FDA) to treat female pattern baldness.
For women, 2% concentration of minoxidil is recommended.
Minoxidil works on 1 out of 4 or 5 women. In rest of women, it helps is slowing and stopping hair fall.
One big problem with minoxidil is that you must use it continuously for a longer period of time.
Current notion is that by dilating blood vessels, it allows more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the follicles stimulating the growth of hair. It’s somewhat like this-
If Minoxidil doesn’t work on any women then spironolactone is the second recommended solution. This medicine is available in tablet form.It increases potassium level so it must be totally avoided by women with kidney failure or women in pregnancy.
It works very well in the case where androgen(a male Harmon) is the main cause of hair fall.
This drug is not FDA approved so kindly consult with doctors.

PRP is very famous and so far very effective solution to cure hair fall and baldness to great extent.The plasma is present in our blood and helps in healing damaged area. In PRP, a Blood sample is taken from the patient body and platelets counts are increased with the help of external catalysts.

SMP is actually not a solution to hair fall but it can be helpful in case you have control over your hair fall but you want to hide any patch or bald area. It became popular in 2013 and since then many celebrities have undergone SMP.
In general, many people call it a hair tattoo. It actually makes thinning hairs look thicker. In SMP natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of your scalp which looks like natural hair follicles.
