Male pattern baldness – not to mention hair loss in women – can be a body blow to the confidence and the looks of the individuals experiencing it. The question, of course, is what to do about it?
For many years there have been all kinds of so-called “solutions” floating around out there but it is now true to say that we have arrived at a solution that really works, looks fantastic, and brings the ability to restore an attractive hairline for many individuals interested in getting back their youthful looks and confidence.
So when many people ask “what can I do about my hair loss?” with a hefty dose of cynicism mixed in with a little bit of hope you should tell them that help has indeed arrived!
There are now ways to restore hair through transplantation for people with both male and female pattern hair loss! And don’t worry that it will look like little rows of sprouts – like a cornfield. It will not – anymore. After all, this is not the 1980s – so you do not have to wear something resembling a “chia pet” on your head.
FUE vs. FUT
With today’s technology, hair restoration looks and feels natural. Some ask “Whose hair do I get?” Your own, silly! There are two different transplant procedures: Follicular Unit Transfer(FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). While FUT is sometimes necessary, it is the less desirable of the two since it involves a strip of skin and hair being removed from your scalp. The follicles then get cut into pieces and implanted in the thinning areas on your head. As you would imagine, the area of the scalp that was removed for the hair then usually requires stitches – and don’t forget about the hairless scar this process will leave on your head.
So that leaves us with FUE – which is, you guessed it, the superior method, especially when accompanied by NeoGraft technology. FUE literally takes groups of only three or four hair follicles at a time, as opposed to a full strip of skin off your head. And with cutting-edge, NeoGraft technology, it allows Dr. Stong to locate the hair very carefully into the best place, taking into consideration the direction that the follicle will grow.
FUE allows for very natural looking transplanted hair – which of course is the only kind of transplanted hair you really want. Following some brief recovery time, you’ll be able to style your restored hair as if it never fell out in the first place!
OK, so are you curious if hair restoration is for you? Why not just check out the link for NeoGraft at the bottom of our homepage? You’ll be able to upload your picture and “try on” a new head of hair. Pretty cool!
So, yes, hair restoration really does work! Call Kalos today for your consultation.
