Many people don’t realize that medical hair restoration is available to them. They blame genetics, illness or just dumb luck. If this sounds like you, you may be selling yourself short – and dealing with a lack of hair that you don’t have to deal with. There are various procedures based upon where you are lacking in the hair department and what caused it.
There are three reasons why you should look into medical hair restoration.
The first reason is because of wig allergies. While there are a lot of good wigs on the market, they may be doing a lot of damage to your scalp. The reason is because the hairs are tied together with a variety of materials and glues. If you have sensitive skin, you may have everyone around you fooled, but you are suffering as a result.
Another reason that you want to look into medical hair restoration is to boost self-esteem. If you have lost hair, it may not be helping your appearance – and you have grown extremely self-conscious about it. You may not even realize that it’s the hair loss that’s causing you to lose your esteem. As soon as you come to terms with what’s got you down about your appearance, you can start dealing with it in an appropriate manner.
There are all sorts of things that a doctor can do with medical hair restoration including follicular unit extraction. Hair may be extracted from one area to another to give you the opportunity to start growing your own hair once again. This ensures you get the full head of hair that you once had or that you always dreamed of having.
Another reason that hair restoration should be considered is that it is more affordable than you might think. Once you make the appointment with the doctor and begin exploring options, you can find out just how much it costs – and whether your health insurance will cover any of it. In many instances, you only deal with the medical hair restoration once. After that, you are able to grow your own hair again and you don’t have to pay more money.
This may be a huge savings in comparison to what you are doing now. You may be spending money on high-end wigs every few years. And if you’re having allergic reactions, you’re also spending money on creams and other things for your scalp to deal with the redness and the breakouts. At the end of the day, it’s not even your real hair, which means you’re not spending your money wisely.
Men and women alike can have their hair medically restored. There’s no reason why you can’t look into it as it can give you the appearance you have always wanted with your own hair. It’s worth making an appointment with a doctor to see what can be done for you.
