How Does Biotin Affect Hair Loss?
Biotin is a product found in many different hair loss solutions. From simple supplements to other more complicated treatments, Biotin has been a very popular option for those looking to restore their hair. But is it effective as a long-term treatment for hair loss?
Generally, adults should be consuming between 30-100 mcg (micrograms) of biotin each day. There are many biotin-rich foods such as egg yolks, nuts (such as almonds or peanuts), whole grains, bananas, and mushrooms that you can use to supplement your biotin intake. The idea is that consuming more biotin will help maintain the body’s basic Keratin infrastructure, which is the protein that forms your hair, skin, and nails.
Biotin continues to be touted as an effective cure for hair loss, despite a relative lack of information on the effectiveness of the nutrient in hair growth. There are some studies supporting biotin effectiveness, but they are quite limited in scope and the consensus does not yet exist for the effectiveness of biotin.
While biotin is certainly one option to employ when looking to reverse hair loss, there are other solutions that require little retreatment and can provide lasting, guaranteed results.
A procedure known as skin micropigmentation does not rely on nutrients or any other sort of supplement – it is a purely physical treatment. Scalp micropigmentation works by injecting small amounts of pigment into the skin, allowing to a large degree of customization.
For men with thinning hair, this typically means injecting the pigment to achieve a fuller-looking head of hair. While for bald or balding men, the treatment gives them a freshly-shaved look without the hassle of having to maintain it.
Scalp micropigmentation typically achieves long-lasting results in just 2-3 treatments, spaced only one week apart. There are no significant side effects either during or following treatment, and once you’ve received treatment, you can go back to your life without having to worry about your hair loss!
