Knowing When To Get Hair Transplant
Hair that is full, lustrous, and lovely is a representation of youth, fertility, and pure beauty. Whether it is a lady or a man, those who are impacted may have psychological stress if their hair starts to fall out and gets thinner and thinner. How do you decide when to undergo a hair transplant, though?
Above all, a hair transplant can lessen pain because not everyone, especially ladies, has the courage to grab a pair of scissors and a razor and proudly sport their bald head. Hair Transplant for Women makes sense here. But first, it’s important to identify what’s causing the hair loss. A hair transplant, for example, is not practical for several disorders that affect the hair.
The diagnosis is presented first.
Hair loss up to a certain point is entirely natural. People can lose up to 100 hairs every day on average. Only when the hair suddenly falls out in clumps and/or stops growing back does it become crucial. In this situation, the affected person should first visit a doctor so that they may make a diagnosis and perhaps begin an appropriate therapy.
Hereditary hair loss is the most typical cause of irreversible hair loss in both men and women. For the most part, the signs are obvious.
Hereditary hair loss in men, known medically as androgenetic alopecia, typically manifests in their early twenties. The first indication is a receding hairline, which becomes worse with time and becomes more obvious. A tonsure forms at the back of the skull as the illness worsens. If the hair loss persists, the tonsure will eventually become bald due to the receding hairline.
Hereditary hair loss in women typically starts later, frequently when menopause starts. Unlike men, women have a loss of hair at the crown of the head that eventually results in bald patches. Complete baldness in women is extremely uncommon.
Hereditary hair loss is brought on by the hair root’s hypersensitivity to the androgen DHT, which is created from the male hormone testosterone. The only treatment for this kind of hair loss that is long-lasting and effective is a hair transplant.
Diffuse hair loss
In contrast to androgenetic alopecia, diffuse hair loss affects the entire head. The causes are numerous and might include psychological factors, starvation, and negative effects from taking medications. Hair that falls out typically regrows as soon as the issue is fixed.
Circular hair loss (alopecia areata)
An autoimmune condition called alopecia areata causes the body’s immune system to unexpectedly mistake the hair roots for foreign objects and begin attacking them. The follicles become inflamed as a result, which leads to hair loss.
The disease-specific circular bald patches are the outcome of this. The precise causes have not yet been firmly established. A hair transplant, incidentally, is not practical for people with this illness since the immune system would destroy the painstakingly grafted hair roots right away.
Utilizing hair transplantation to cover scars
Additionally, hair transplantation can be used to cover up ugly scars, such as those left behind following FUT hair transplantation. At ClinMedica, we can use scalp micropigmentation to cover up a minor scar, at least optically.
Of course, this is also an option if the scar is larger or the patient wants to encourage hair growth there. After removing the unsightly scar tissue, the lesion is then once more closed using the trichophytic procedure. The grafts are then inserted into the region around the scar and in the scar itself.
The grafts may also be inserted directly into the scar tissue. This is especially advised if the donor scar is straight. Hair Transplant doctors at ClinMedica are aware that the grafts have less favorable conditions for growth and that deposits can cause the scar to become harder.
