You used to have a full head of hair and as time has gone on, this has not held true. There are all sorts of over-the-counter products and when they don’t work, you may feel as though it’s not possible to get the full head of hair that you once had. It may be time to explore follicular unit extraction, which is a process that can be done by doctors.
It’s important that you get the full head of hair that you want because you won’t be happy with your appearance until you do. While your barber or hair stylist may show you ways that you can style your hair with what you have, it’s not what you want.
The over-the-counter products are problematic because they give you false hope. They make all of these claims as to how they can help you and then they disappoint. The truth of the matter is, many people are not helped by those products. They don’t take into consideration problems with the roots of your hair and any genetic problems you may be dealing with.
As you look through your family, you may realize that you’re not alone in what you are going through. Other people may have thinner hair or no hair at all, just like you. Just because they have accepted what has happened doesn’t mean that you do. A hair transplant in Houston can be just what you need to improve.
Follicular unit extraction is a very specific procedure that is done so that you can feel confident about yourself once again. The hair follicles from one area of your scalp are extracted to be placed where you don’t have any follicles. This will allow you to grow your own hair instead of relying on plugs, wigs or anything else.
A boost of self-confidence will come your way when you can look in the mirror at a full head of hair and know that it is all yours. It can be just what you need to get the hair growing again – and not experience problems with hair growth again in the future.
Not everyone is a candidate for this type of procedure, so it’s important that you talk with your doctor. You may be able to stop using the over-the-counter products simply because you have found a better and more permanent fix.
Follicular unit extraction is a fairly new medical breakthrough, which is why you may not have heard about it in the past. You can figure out what it is and what it involves by going to a hair restoration center. Medical staff will answer all the questions you have and look at your hair growth patterns to see if it is something that can help you and your desire to have a full head of hair.
