One of the first things that we notice about a person is their hair: it’s length, color, and even volume. It is an important feature we identify with and one that we notice in others. Individuals who are experiencing signs of hair loss are likely to want to hide it, and unfortunately, aside from a good hat, there is little that can be done. The best thing that you can do for yourself is to solve the problem by undergoing a hair restoration procedure.
Hair loss can happen for a variety of reasons in both men and women. Men typically suffer from male pattern baldness because of their genetic background. If your family has a history of male pattern baldness it is possible you will as well. In women, female pattern baldness is typically associated with postmenopausal changes but it can happen at any age. Regardless of gender, signs of balding can be demoralizing and factors like hormonal abnormalities, an iron deficiency, or even an under-active thyroid can both contribute to hair loss and overall health.
Hair loss happens when our hair follicles shrink and begin to produce smaller, finer hair. Over time, the follicle stops producing hair altogether, which is how people bald over time. The follicle is still considered “alive” even though it is not producing hair, and this is where the restoration process begins to work its magic.
The hair restoration procedure is one that produces the most natural results because it capitalizes on features you already possess: your hair! It starts by taking hair from a donor area and replacing it with the area that has lost hair. Effectively, if you have thick hair on the back of your head or elsewhere, it can be moved follicle by follicle to the area that has thinned out. This creates an even, balanced appearance using your natural hair, and it is the perfect way to reduce the appearance of receding hair lines and bald spots while still being naturally you.
People considering hair restoration are ideally in good overall health and have moderate signs of hair loss. It is important to note that candidates need to also have enough donor hair for the procedure to work as intended. People who have more donor hair can get better, fuller results. Following the procedure, it is important to understand that your hair will not be as full as it was in its prime. However, you will notice significant improvements in the overall coverage of your hair.
If you are looking to improve your hair coverage in a way that looks and feels natural, then you should consider a hair restoration procedure. It is the perfect way to improve signs of thinning hair while still being naturally you.
