Years ago, men and women alike were not privy to the same techniques available in today’s medical hair restoration services. Wigs and hairpieces were commonly used to deal with a receding hair line or complete hair loss. This left a large percentage of the population feeling self-conscious because they knew they did not look their best but did not know what to do about it.
Today, there are many new trends in medical hair restoration. Not only can a person overcome their baldness, but they can get the self-confidence they need to succeed in the workforce. People can go bald for a variety of reasons. Some have to do with genetics, others have to do with diseases.
Regardless of why a person has started to lose hair, there are now techniques that can be used to help a person obtain a full head of healthy hair once again. One of the most common techniques now used is hair transplant surgery, which is a dramatic step up from the hair plugs used a decade or so ago.
Often, the hair follicles outside of the balding area are in abundance. These can be transplanted to the thinning or balding areas. Since it is your hair, it will grow in naturally and continue to grow for the rest of your years. This means you can shampoo it, condition it, and style it just like you used to without fear of it falling out.
Grafting can also be done to help with density. When you want thicker and fuller hair while still maintaining the natural appearance, then medical hair restoration is the way to go. You will get to sit in with a doctor for a consultation to determine whether a transplant, a graft, or even a scalp reduction is in order to help increase the hair that you have on your head.
In some instances, it’s not baldness at all that worries people – it’s their eyebrows. Years ago, the solution would have been to draw them in with an eye pencil. The only problem is that it was obvious what people were doing and more of that self-consciousness was lost. There is an eyebrow transplant available with medical hair restoration.
Hair is replenished along the brow line to give people the natural appearance they desire. If you have very thin eyebrows or they do not go across the entire arch, a transplant may be something that you want to look into – and it will look natural thanks to the newest trends that have entered the area of medical hair restoration.
You deserve to look and feel great about the hair that you have. If you are experiencing thinning or balding areas, you don’t have to learn to live with it. New technology and techniques are available to provide you with the full head of hair you want without using hair that isn’t your own.
