What is Hair Restoration?
Hair restoration, or hair transplant, is the process of restoring hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. While hair loss, hair thinning and baldness are common amongst men, through Male Pattern Baldness and Alopecia Areata, hair restoration can be conducted on anyone, using a number of different techniques.
What causes Hair Loss?
While there is still much debate over what exactly causes hair loss in adults, hormones, genes and stress are all major factors that can contribute to male and female pattern baldness. Other causes of hair loss can include certain drugs, medical conditions and cosmetic procedures. Temporary hair loss, thinning and weakening of the hair follicle can be brought on by over-shampooing, hair dye and over processing of the hair.
It is normal to lose approximately 100 hairs per day, with the rate of hair growth slowing as you age.
What is the procedure?
Methods used to treat hair loss can be both surgical and non-surgical, consisting of Laser Hair Restoration and/or Hair Integration. These procedures aim to correct the loss of hair by permanently restoring hair through transplanting of new follicles into the balding or thinning area.
The type of graft received for your hair transplant is determined by your hair type and texture. The procedure typically takes between 4 – 8 hours.
Laser Therapy and Monochromatic Light Therapy are also commonly used to treat hair loss by making regrowth possible.
