Whether you are a treehugger or not, it can be emotionally devastating if your hair has begun to fall out in large amounts. Maybe you use all the eco products in the world to help you but you still want your hair back. Some of you might just shave it off and enjoy being bald like many men in the Middle East, but hair replacements are still an option for some people who cannot cope with losing their hair, and who have tried augmenting diet and health practices. Here are some options available to you.
When you want your hair to grow back properly, you have options that depend on your goals and your existing hair. Naturally, there are going to be health requirements no matter what kind of hair transplant you go for. But in some cases, there may be additional requirements beyond being of legal age and having a general state of good health.
General Health Concerns
There are some general health requirements that you’re going to have to fulfill before you can get any kind of hair transplant at places like the Vera Clinic. For one thing, you need to be healthy enough to be able to grow hair at all. If you’re going through chemotherapy or radiation, you may not be able to grow hair regardless of the type of hair transplant you receive. Since these types of therapies are also intended to fight serious illnesses, you may need to focus on winning the fight inside before you work too much on your appearance.
It’s also important to remember that, such as in the case of FUE, it can take up to 10 hours to complete. If you’re unable to lie comfortably for this amount of time, such as if you have a problem with circulation, you may not be a good candidate. If your general health is truly poor, you may need to focus on this first, and then pursue your hair transplant treatment at a later time.
The FUE and the Proud
FUE hair transplants are a classic that has never gone out of style. This is a method that allows you to use your own hair to go from having a small amount of scalp coverage, to having full coverage in a relatively short period of time. This is also a permanent solution with only a few months until you have fully healed from your operation.
FUE and Sapphire FUE both take follicles from a dense area of your hair, and then soak them in a growth medium. From there, tiny incisions are made into your scalp, which allows for implantation. From there, the hair grows naturally.
PRP and the Lighter Course
PRP is a non-surgical method of hair transplant. This method uses a small blood draw, which uses growth factors in your plasma to stimulate hair growth in thinning areas. The platelets in the plasma allow your hair follicles to be stimulated naturally, without any need to transplant existing hairs or create new follicles.
The PRP method can take more instances of treatment, but the ultimate results tend to be very consistent over time. The fact that there’s no surgery also means the recovery time for this type of treatment is extremely short.
