Follicle transplant: Some alternatives include toupees, hair weaves & hair shaft thickeners. They can improve your hairline but don't cause regrowth. Hair transplant involves the removal of a follicle from an area that's unaffected by male hormones to the area (s) of hair loss. Or, you could embrace your inner bald guy & shave your head. BTW, I'm not aware of laser treatment for male pattern baldness.
