We know that hair loss is a devastating blow, often occurring without warning. As such, it is important to know the types of treatments that are available and, more importantly, which treatments are permanent.
The internet is littered with claims of previously unknown cures for hair loss. However, hair is far too important to be placing any hope in unproven, time-wasting solutions. Time and again, it has been shown that the only proven treatment that will achieve effective, natural and permanent results is a hair transplant.
What Causes Hair Loss?
However, hair loss can be triggered by several other factors, such as:
- Side effects of medication
- Hormonal fluctuations
- Trauma to the follicles and hair
- Improper hair maintenance
Our genes dictate when hair loss starts to occur, it is likely to spread and become permanent. In fact, hair loss affects approximately half of all men by the time they reach the age of 50.
How Do Transplants Work?
A transplant procedure involves moving healthy hair follicles, usually from the back or sides of the scalp, to target areas at the front of the head.
Small plugs are created on the skin of the affected region. The plugs are then filled with functioning hair follicles. This process integrates the hair follicles into the circulatory system of the scalp, prompting unprecedented regeneration.
There are two major types of hair transplants:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure involves surgeons expertly selecting follicles from healthy regions, and skilfully redistributing them to the target areas.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) procedure involves the removal of a small strip of tissue from the scalp, which contains healthy follicles, and the subsequent harvesting and transplanting of the healthy follicles.
Are Transplants Permanent?
Not only are hair transplants permanent and almost universally effective (Advanced Hair Studio’s treatments boast a 95% efficacy rate), they are the only permanent treatment available.
Though the results are impressive, a hair transplant is not a miracle cure; it merely relies on a skilled understanding of the biology of hair. It basically relocates existing hair to where it is needed most, using the precise tools that modern surgery can offer.
Hair transplants do need some time to heal and grow properly, but when combined with growth promoting medications, permanent, natural hair can be grown in only several months.
The best part? Transplanted hairs are resistant to the effects of DHT, so new hair can be grown hassle free for years to come.
