What To Do With The Early Signs of Hair Thinning?

Hair loss occurs in the majority of men. It is seen by many who suffer as a flaw to be cured. Socially it is considered to be an unwelcome sign of ageing.  The loss of a youthful appearance.

Generally, we try to look our best. Feel good about ourselves and like to convey a youthful appearance to others. Life today has its own demands. More and more people look to cosmetic surgery for answers to the ageing process.

hair-restoration-planningHair loss can have deep psychological effects. Consciously or subconsciously can affect confidence. Alter our ability to interact with others easily, and can lead to low self-esteem. The constant reminder of age as you look in the mirror does not help. Also, the competitive and ever so more image conscious world we live in. The outside influences go a long way in telling us how we should look and be.

If you ask many hair loss sufferers when did they first notice they started to lose hair they will know. Or, when was the point they decided to do something about it most can give a specific time. A relative, friend, or partner comments you are losing hair. A bald patch is opening, you are getting old.

Having the ability to restore something genetics has deprived us of can restore our own feel-good factor. A more youthful appearance gives back the self- confidence and self-esteem. As a result, can then reach out into all aspects of our lives, business and personal.

Check What Is Your Hair Loss Condition First

The normal procedure for an online consultation is to email your questions and hair details along with pictures to the clinic.  Do not necessarily expect the doctor to reply in person. They are obviously busy and concentrated on their patients in surgery. In many clinics where English is the first language, they will often have advisors available. They are often fluent in several other languages to ensure that you receive a proper translation.

When sending your pictures they need to be clear and in focus. Try not to send a family album or holiday snap. But all sides and angles of your head and expose your hairline. Hair brushed back to allow the doctor to properly address your concerns. The doctor will assess your pictures against what you have written in terms of goals.  You will receive a report as to the clinic’s approach. This can be from doing nothing to treatment options to surgical or non-surgical hair restoration techniques.

For some, online consultation may suffice. Simple virgin scalp cases with no complications. Other times the clinic will ask you to attend a personal consultation. Especially if they feel there may be complications or limitations. Also, you may wish to visit the clinic anyway. The online consultation can be the first step. Helping to vet the clinics before moving forward.

The next step is treating your hair loss

After understanding your hair loss condition you can now look at ways to either prevent future hair loss. Also, possibly how to restore areas of lost hair.

For many, the first option is the permanent option or solution. A hair transplant. Before deciding to undergo a hair transplant it is important to research Become educated as much as possible as to your hair loss stage now, and the potential for future hair loss.

A hair transplant is not a hair loss cure. Only the redistribution of hair. In some cases, not all people are suitable for a hair transplant procedure. A hair transplant and medications can complement each other. Surgical hair replacement without medical therapy may not provide a suitable result in some cases.

There are only three FDA approved medicated treatments and therapies for the treatment of hair loss. Although FDA approved it must be understood there is no miracle cure. Results will vary from person to person. Always consult a specialist before using.

Minoxidil (Rogaine®)

Is a topical application applied to the scalp twice daily, 1ml each application. Available over-the-counter in 2% or 5% lotion, and now in a foam form, the active ingredient is thought to increase blood circulation locally, acting as a vasodilator.

Finasteride (Propecia®)

Is a tablet taken daily and acts by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the cause of male pattern hair loss. It is available only on prescription and cannot be taken by women. It slows hair loss and stimulates some new hair growth, and works more effectively on the crown and mid- scalp than the frontal area.

The most recently approved treatment uses low-level red laser light which stimulates hair follicles. The size of a normal hairbrush or in a dome form, it improves the strength and appearance of hair as well as hair growth.

Natural and Herbal Treatments

There are many natural herbal options available, with any medication or therapy treatment it is always best to consult with a specialist prior to taking; just because it is natural does not mean there will not be damaging side effects.

If you suffer from hair loss and want to try non-surgical hair restoration treatments first, make sure the methods have been proven to work.

When Can Hair Transplantation Play a Role?

Today there are two recognised hair transplant techniques. FUT hair transplant surgery the doctor removes the hair from a thin strip of the hair-bearing tissue. This is taken from around the back and sides of the head.  Follicular Unit Extraction/FUE, on the other hand, uses a micro-punch to extract each hair unit. One by one from around the donor area. The number of punch extractions is directly related to the number of grafts required.

With both techniques it has been medically recognised that hair from the donor can be moved. Then placed in an area of hair loss. This hair will continue to grow after being moved to the new area. Displaying the same traits and characteristics as it had prior to being moved.

Follicular Unit Hair Transplant Surgery is now the most refined form of hair transplantation. Greater skills have to be applied as well as time to excise the natural groups of FU intact. Follicular Unit transplanting separates the natural groups of hairs, from 1-4 hairs in each group, and thus enables the groups to be utilised in the optimum place in the recipient zone.

Single hair FU are to be used on the hairline, two hair units behind, then three and four hair units to increase density. A Follicular Unit Hair Transplant is far more natural and can mimic nature with refined surgical abilities to place each unit close enough together to give the illusion of natural density, to position the units with precise direction and orientation making it impossible to differentiate from a person‟s naturally growing hair. As the basis of a hair transplant works because of the illusion of density, it is not possible to replace like for like hair lost, the distribution of FU is vital to attaining the desired result.

Planning Your Hair Restoration

The donor hair characteristics combined with the pattern of hair loss now and potentially in the future must be taken into consideration. Not everyone can achieve total restoration from hairline to the crown, especially with an even high hair density. Some may have to settle for partial coverage or a lower hair density over the crown if their hair loss pattern develops to an NW5 and over.

Whether to use treatment or allow hair loss to progress naturally or to perform a hair transplant are personal decisions. Hair loss is an emotive issue for many men and woman and occasionally the heart can rule the head because of the desire to repair or replace lost hair. It is important to calculate the options and pros and cons and it may be necessary to compromise your expectations for your greater well-being.

Important Considerations
  • Your age now and at what age did you begin to lose your hair?
  • How progressive has your hair loss been?
  • What is your family‟s hair loss history, maternal and paternal?
  • How have you addressed your hair loss, tried various medication, if so how effective?
  • Have you undergone a hair transplant before, if so what technique, how long ago and how many grafts?
  • What are your objectives? Do you want to achieve conservative or aggressive coverage?
  • Where are your priorities? Front hairline, mid-scalp, crown, entire head, repair?
