Treatments for Thinning Hair

You probably are thinking of doing something about your thinning hair. Before you turn to any treatment options, you should talk to a trichologist or a dermatologist. The experts will help you discern the root causes of your hair loss and recommend the best treatments that suit you.

Thinning hair treatments vary depending on the cause. Some of the possible treatments that can help you include:

Minoxidil (Rogaine)

Topical minoxidil is a hair loss product you can purchase over the counter. You may have to apply the product to work effectively on your scalp for several months. You may still notice hair loss if you stop applying the product as advised.

Finasteride (Propecia)

Doctors can also prescribe finasteride for hair loss patterns. The oral tablet is taken by mouth and is available as a generic or brand-name drug.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

You can also go for low-level laser therapy if you suffer hair loss due to chemotherapy or when you’re healing after a hair transplant.


Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure where the scalp is pricked with sterilized needles. This procedure can help with hair loss, acne, scars, large pores, and more.

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is a plastic surgery that can yield lasting results. The procedure involves removing individual hairs from a section of your scalp and transplanting them to balding or thinning areas. Usually, the surgery takes approximately 4-8 hours.
