New Technologies for Hair Replacement Procedures

by on September 12, 2014 in Hair Loss Treatment


Hair replacement procedures are now available in the market nowadays as one of the cosmetic procedures for hair loss. Your falling hair strands are caused by many factors, genetics being the most common. Other factors may include intake of medications as well as illness and high levels of stress. Women may also experience hair loss brought about by childbirth, but this is only temporary.

Before anything else, let us explore more information about hair replacement below:

The usual treatment options for hair loss include drugs such as Rogaine and Propecia, FDA-approved to treat baldness caused by heredity or genetics. Rogaine (generic name Minoxidil) is applied topically to the balding area to help slow hair loss and experience hair regrowth. On the other hand, Propecia (generic name Finasteride) is to be taken orally in pill form as prescribed by a doctor. However, once the treatment is stopped, so will the effects.

As mentioned earlier, advanced remedies to permanent hair loss include hair replacement procedures. Examples of this are hair transplantation methods (slit grafting, punch grafting, and micro grafting), as well as scalp reduction procedures. These procedures suit different hair loss types, depending on the patient’s circumstances and preferences.

The first of the two hair replacement procedures include hair grafting. Also known as a hair transplant, this includes the removal of a portion of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head and then transplanted to the balding area, to produce a thickening and ‘natural’ look. On the other hand, scalp reduction involves the removal of the non-hair-bearing skin from the scalp to stretch the hair-bearing skin from the scalp to fill the bald area. This way, the area with less hair will be filled by healthier scalp.

There are a few things to remember about this procedure, however. Hair replacement procedures may only be given to a specific type of patients: males and females experiencing genetic hair loss, and other patients who have experienced hair loss not as a result of scalp injuries, to name a few. On the other hand, this therapy cannot be given to patients who are experiencing a wide-spread pattern of hair loss, candidates who do not have enough ‘healthy scalp’ areas, and those who have experienced injury or trauma from head burns, trauma, or radiation, as these may result to keloid scarring.

These procedures may take several sessions and may have side effects, but so far, these processes are definitely the best hair replacement procedures available today.
