Hair loss is something that might worry anyone. Not only does this decrease hair on your head, it also lowers the level of your self-confidence, while leading you towards depression.
So, what is it that you need to do to stop this hair loss and restore your hair growth?
The options are many such as medications, topical creams, oils, PRP, Mesotherapy and Hair Transplant surgeries. However, what you would need depends totally on your condition.
For instance, if you are facing hair fall because of a seasonal change, this is a temporary phase. Proper hair care and medicated oils or creams might help. You can even consult a doctor and start taking some medications which might replenish your system with the right nutrients needed for the hair growth. Within a few weeks, your hair loss will stop and fresh hair will start growing.
In cases of extreme hair thinning, these oils, topical creams and medications may not work that effectively. You may have to go for non-surgical hair loss treatments such as Mesotherapy and PRP. These are aimed at replenishing your scalp with the essential nutrients that can help minimize hair loss and stimulate the re-growth of hair. Nevertheless, even these may not work if you have bald patches on your head.
Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness is quite difficult to treat through hair loss treatments, medications, oils and creams. In fact most might even believe that only a miracle can help them grow hair on their bald patches. Nevertheless, these miracles do get performed on a day-to-day basis in many cosmetic clinics all over the world.
The advancements in technology have introduced minimally invasive hair transplant procedures such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) that work wonders for people who wish to get rid of their baldness.
How do Hair Transplant Procedures work?
These are minimally invasive procedures where in the healthy hair follicles found at the back of your head are transplanted on to the areas that are to be treated. Hair transplantation works for both male and female pattern baldness effectively. However, the criterion is that there has to be a healthy growth of hair at the back of your head. The thicker this growth, the better will be the results.
In order to understand these procedures, it is important to understand the two main methods of hair transplantation: FUE and FUT
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a procedure where in hair follicles are extracted individually from the back of your head, dissected under a high-powered microscope and transplanted individually on the area to be treated. Tiny incisions are made in the donor and recipient area after the application of a numbing cream or local anaesthetic, which takes care of any pain or discomfort you may face. Since there are no wounds or scars here, you get to recover faster. Eyebrow hair restoration, moustache transplants, eyelash transplants as well as sideburn and goatee transplants can be performed very well through FUE as the number of grafts required would be lesser.
FUT or Follicular unit transplantation is a procedure where in a long thin strip of tissues is removed from the back of your head. These tissues are placed in a holding solution until the grafts are prepared using a high-powered microscope. The grafts are prepared in units of 1, 2, 3 and 4 and transplanted the same way, to achieve fullness. Unlike FUE, FUT is a faster procedure by which thousands of grafts can be transplanted in a single session. Therefore it works very well for scalp transplant and beard transplant.
Many have achieved successful results through hair transplantation. You can definitely be one of them. However, you have to make sure you follow the instructions given by the hair transplant expert carefully and attend multiple sessions if need be, to achieve desired results that stay for a long time.
