Everyone like to look young as long as they can, and this involves having a healthy body and of course a beautiful head of hair. However, some people just lose their hair rather early, and they can feel upset and down and will look for any means to stop hair from falling or grow it where there isn’t any.
In this article, let us take a look at the reasons for hair loss and what can be done to prevent or reverse the situation.
Many people lose hair when they grow old, and this is a fact that cannot be avoided. But there are times where even those who are younger have a receding hairline. The cause for this can vary, but mostly it is due to a genetic problem, a side effect of medication or an accident. It could also be that using hair products that contain harsh chemicals over an extended period of time has damaged the hair.
Hair restoration methods
Individuals who are dealing with this condition will try almost anything to get a full head of hair again. Some methods include oils, shampoos, pills and other devices. However, these are mostly for those who have less growth or hair loss and will give mixed results. However, if you want a permanent solution, you can consider hair transplantation.
What is hair transplantation?
In a nutshell, hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure that involves moving hair from one place to another on the scalp. For example, if you have a patch on your head that does not have hair, the surgeon will remove hair from places that you have sufficient growth and implant them in locations that do not have enough hair. It is a process that takes quite a bit of time as each hair follicle has to be removed and moved individually. The best part is that the hair is yours and all natural and it is a permanent solution.
Is it safe?
Hair transplantation is a safe procedure, and it does not require any anesthetic and is done while the patient is wide awake. There will be an area which is called the donor area on your head where the hair follicles are harvested. This is done so that it does not make the place look bad. Sometimes there are groups of follicles which come in 2 to 4 and also the single follicles. Depending on the area that needs the implants the doctor will select the appropriate ones to implant.
