Mainly the major difference between surgical and non-surgical hair loss treatments is their lasting period. For now, the only permanent solution for hair loss is a hair transplant and other surgical options. On the other hand, non-surgical options require repairing sessions. So if your chosen treatment needs a few sessions to show you the final result and you should go through the same procedure a few months later, be sure that it is a non-surgical hair loss treatment. Even if it includes needles or it must be operated by a doctor in a hospital or clinic.
