Yes: Presently we are using hair transplant, rogaine, (minoxidil) and Propecia to treat hair loss. Also the laser comb helps some patients. In few years we hope to have gene therapy to stop hair loss.

Medicine or Surgery: There are a few medications available to stop hair loss (finasteride and minoxidil). Laser has also helped in this matter. Hair transplantation is the ideal procedure to replace the los hair.

No.: There need to be healthy hair grafts (usually at the back of the head) to transplant. A completely bald person has no such source.
