Know all about Hair Restoration

Hair Restoration

If you want to restore lost hair, you have a great number of flexible and reliable options to restore lost hair, available today than ever before.

Current hair replacement systems use advanced technologies, such as improved transplanting strategies and state-of-the-art laser systems to create seamless, natural-looking results. Anyone who is in good overall health & dissatisfied with their thinning or lost hair is a candidate for a hair loss remedy.

Options
Surgical micrografting is commonly used to restore hair to large, barren areas. Your surgeon will harvest hair from a densely covered part of your head – typically the sides and/or back – and implant the harvested hair in bald areas to create a dramatically improved appearance.

Laser hair replacement surgery is used to treat both male & female hair loss. It works best when applied to regions that are thinning but not barren. Essentially, the laser acts to stimulate blood flow to dying follicles, which in turn, rejuvenates them and promotes thicker hair growth. Ongoing treatment is necessary to maintain your results and prevent further hair loss.

Evaluation
During initial and follow-up consultation sessions, the surgeon will perform a physical examination of your hair, discuss your desires and expectations and recommend a hair replacement technique. Generally speaking, hair replacement surgery is indicated to fill in areas where hair growth has ceased completely, and laser hair replacement is recommended to encourage natural, thicker regrowth in thinner areas. You will need to be in good overall health to qualify for a surgical hair replacement.

Procedure
The most common techniques used to restore lost hair include follicular unit micrografting and laser hair replacement surgery. A micrograft hair transplant uses hair taken from a donor site, usually located on the sides or back of your head where hair still grows, & implants it into areas of your head where hair growth has ceased. It is a reliable technique used to create significant coverage in a short period of time.

In the term ‘laser hair surgery’, the ‘surgery’ part is a bit of a misnomer – there is no actual surgery involved. Instead, focused laser beams are used to stimulate dying follicles, restore blood flow to them and allow your natural hair to grow back. This technique is most effectively used in areas where hair growth has thinned out but not ceased entirely.

Risks
Delayed healing, postoperative infection and excessive bleeding are the most common side effects of hair replacement surgeries. By and large though, these are reliable and safe procedures that present little risk to the patient.

Recovery
Your surgeon may apply a dressing after surgery which will remain in place for a day or two. Stitches, if used, will dissolve on their own or be removed after about 10 days. You can use cold compresses and pain medications to control any swelling, bruising or head tightness that you may experience.

After a few days, you will be able to shampoo your hair again. You will probably notice hair falling out in the initial post-treatment phase; this is perfectly normal and expected. If you are using a laser technique to stimulate natural hair regrowth, expect results to take 6 to 12 weeks to manifest.

Alternatives
Men and women who do not want to treat their hair loss medically, have long used wigs, toupees and hair weaves. Some patients report positive results when using topical hair regrowth products. However, results vary and can typically only be used to treat a narrow range of hair loss patterns.
