Hair Transplant and Restoration
Hair Transplant Basics
With the average person shedding 50-100 hairs a day, hair re-growth should be occurring simultaneously. However, stress, poor eating habits and nutrition, medications and illness can cause an increased loss of existing hairs. Hair loss that occurs under these circumstances, if treated early, can be corrected or managed. A change in the factor causing the hair loss most often means hair growth will resume. Permanent hair loss becomes the issue at hand when the existing hair follicles become thinner and weaker. The most common type of permanent hair loss in men is Male Pattern Baldness, also medically known as Androgenic Alopecia. This is hair loss caused by genes, age and hormones. Hair Transplant is the next natural step for medically approved patients. Around 15% of hair is transplanted from the back of the head to the area of concern through a punch method. This ensures the highest rate of success for transplant acceptance all while avoiding any scarring or damage to the follicle.
