Baldness to a much extent is due to genetic and hormonal imbalance.Ofcourse there are treatments to it but I suppose the best would be to go for a hair transplantation.A hair transplantation using the FUT/FUE is the best and newest for hair treatment .The site http://www.theskinandhairclinic.co.uk will give a complete reference and cure to the baldness issue.Its therapy has a long lasting effect which is also worth it.
