Propecia, the FDA-approved pill, which came out in 1997, thickens hair in about 65 percent of those who take it. While the packaging warns of a one to two percent chance of temporary side effects, millions of men consider it a risk worth taking.
But emerging research and numerous lawsuits suggest that finasteride may be more dangerous than previously believed, with cognitive impairment or brain fog among the side effects. In an editorial in JAMA Dermatology, side-effect estimates for finasteride, the drug in Propecia, have jumped from between one and three percent to between 30 and 60 percent.
Since 2011 a number of lawsuits have been filed against Merck saying the company failed to warn balding users of a constellation of sexual and cognitive side effects.
But if you’re determined to find a solution to your balding there is a proven procedure guaranteed to give you healthy new hair where you need it, once and for all and for life.
It’s called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the most successful and widely used method of performing hair transplants using the revolutionary Neograft device. FUE has come a long way since it was first introduced in the early 1990’s. Because early adapters of the technique found it to be extremely labor intensive when performed correctly, and limited by the number of grafts that could be safely harvested intact, per procedure – a faster, more effective process was needed. This prompted the development of the Neograft device.
With the Neograft device, hair follicles are removed with gentle pneumatic pressure, so there is less risk of damaging the follicle, or driving the follicle into the skin, as sometimes happens with traditional surgery. The physician controls the pressure needed for extraction based on the tightness of the individual scalp. There is no incision or suturing so healing time is faster. And it is the safest, most. successful method for restoring your hair.
No more worry of unsafe chemicals or drugs, just healthy new hair that you can enjoy for years and years to come. And best of all, no more balding.
