Regardless of how you lost your hair or why your hair is thinning, you want to find the best option to restore your appearance. There are plenty of methods to help with hair restoration on the market, but not all are effective. It’s important to explore follicular unit extraction as it may be the best option for you.
Before you can understand why follicular unit extraction is the best option for restoring your hair or even providing an eyebrow transplant, you have to look at some of the other methods on the market.
There have always been wigs and toupees. The problem with these is that they look like wigs and toupees. You don’t want people to know that you are wearing artificial hair. Many of them also don’t get the grip that you would like, which means one strong wind would be all it takes for your hair to be lost.
Sprays and shampoos are found in the supermarkets and drug stores, too. The sprays provide fake hair and shampoos help to stimulate the hair follicles to promote growth. These are not always effective as you want them to be, which means you are wasting your money.
Follicular unit extraction involves extracting follicular units from one area of your body and then transplanting them elsewhere – such as in your eyebrow region or on top of your head. By providing working follicles where the hair needs to grow, you begin experiencing the hair growth that you have been looking for.
You will have real hair of your own growing at a natural speed. You can cut it, wash it, dye it, and do anything else you want to it because it is your own. This allows you to get the hair that you have always wanted – or at least replace the hair that you used to have. The process is done within a hair restoration clinic so that you get the medical expertise that is needed.
Too many people are still wasting their money on the options out there that don’t work. You may be one of them and it doesn’t have to be this way. You can learn about the best option by making an appointment with a doctor. Talk to the doctor about why you have been experiencing hair loss and what can be done about it. Shampoos and sprays can be thrown away and you can begin growing your own hair.
Once you are able to start growing hair on your own, you can develop a significant amount of self-confidence. It’s hard to be confident when the hair is not your own. When you want to be able to grow hair on your own as opposed to finding another artificial solution, you simply need to talk to your doctor about follicular unit extractions.
