Cosmetic procedures and health technologies today are bringing many changes in the ways we can sculpt our appearances to our liking. We no longer have to “live with” an imperfection or be self-conscious about it. If you are concerned about hair loss, you may want to consider hair restoration with the experts at AdvancedClinics. Below, we will cover some of the most common questions related to the treatment.
Why Does Hair Loss Happen?
Balding is hereditary, and it can happen to both men and women. While at least 50% of men will lose some amount of hair during their lifetime, female pattern baldness also arises due to genetics.
What Options are Available for Hair Restoration?
There are various hair restoration options available, many of which don’t require surgery or lengthy downtime. One of the best of these options is known as SmartGraft, and it could work for you!
If you suffer from significant hair loss, surgical hair transplantation is a proven way to restore natural hair growth. You should know that recent advancements have made hair transplant surgery easier by reducing discomfort and downtime, giving patients a high satisfaction rate.
Nowadays, there are two types of hair transplant systems:
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant), where a strip of skin with hair follicles is taken from the donor site.
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), which involves harvesting hair follicles from the back of the head and moving them to create a fuller, natural-looking hairline.
Keep in mind that hair loss will continue in other areas, so you might need continued maintenance to maintain the look that has been achieved. But this minimally-invasive procedure is a great option for both men and women. Look for a professional who is experienced in this procedure to get the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration?
During your initial consultation, we will assess the amount of coverage you need to give you the look you are expecting. To be a good candidate, you must:
- Be in good health
- Have moderate hair loss
- Have sufficient donor hair to transplant into the balding areas
