Rogaine vs hair transplant, Being bald or losing too much of your hair every day is not an uncommon problem. You may think that you do not have a permanent solution to this. But there are ways for having the strong and dense hair that you desire. 

You do not need to wear hats or shave your head completely bald for hiding the undesired look anymore. Forget about the wigs and hairpieces too, because these are just temporary and costly solutions. Besides, they do not even look authentic.

With the hair solutions of modern times, it is possible to have your own hair growing on your head. This may sound too good to be true, but the results of these modern innovations are out there. Rogaine (Minoxidil) and hair transplant operation are some of the most sophisticated answers to hair loss. We will be comparing these two solutions in our article.

What is Rogaine?

Minoxidil is the active ingredient in this solution against the hair loss. Rogaine is just he popular commercial name for this chemical. Usually, the user has to apply this solution to his head twice a day. It works by strengthening the hair follicles and thus slow the rate of hair loss you are experiencing. 

The mechanism of action is thought to be increasing the blood flow to the scalp and allowing more nutritions to reach the hair follicles and encourage their growth. This is the only explanation that makes sense so far because this active ingredient was originally meant to be a medication for blood pressure. Now, people mostly use it as a cosmetic product because of its positive effects on the thickness of the hair strands.

What is a Hair Transplant Operation?

Hair transplant operation is the most advanced solution we have yet discovered to fight the hair loss and/or baldness. The process involves taking healthy and strong hair follicles from the donor area and then transplanting them into the desired area with the help of modern surgical technologies. You will have your own real hair growing on top of your head after you go through the operation.

The hair transplant operation yields highly successful results, and it is permanent. It is a minor surgical procedure, and the technicians apply anaesthesia to the patient, so it is practically painless. So far, it is the most rewarding solution to hereditary baldness, and it is completely natural. Because the transplanted hair is going to be your natural hair as well (probably taken from the back of your neck).

Pros and Cons of Hair Transplant and Rogaine

  • The results of the Rogaine usage rarely makes a big difference, whereas the results of the hair transplant operation are immediately apparent.
  • If you stop using rogaine, the effects will slowly fade within a month. So the Rogaine needs to be used continuously. But a hair transplant requires just one operation, and its results are permanent.
  • Buying Rogaine is cheaper than having a hair transplant operation. But you need to use Rogaine twice a day. In other words, it will cost more than a hair transplant operation in the long run.
  • Rogaine can be used after the hair transplant operation.
  • You can use Rogaine in the comfort of your home, but for the hair transplant operation, you need to go to a clinic.
  • If other areas of your skin make contact with Rogaine, you may experience unwanted hair growth in certain areas.
