When a person starts to lose their hair, it can pose an embarrassing problem. Unfortunately, many people simply assume that they will have to endure their hair loss. Luckily, modern hair loss treatments can provide extremely effective results for both men and women suffering from hair loss.

Do Permanent Hair Restoration Treatments Provide Natural Looking Results?

Hair loss patients will frequently assume that wigs and toupees are the best solutions for hair loss. However, there are hair loss restoration treatments that can provide a permanent solution. In particular, neograft hair restoration can transplant hair to cover balding or thinning patches of the scalp. Due to the fact that this is the patient's own hair, this solution can provide a natural looking and extremely durable solution to hair loss.

Does The Hair Sample Have To Come From Your Head?

Unfortunately, there are some patients that may have experienced a near total loss of hair. For these individuals, it may be possible to use body hair for the transplant procedure. This may seem like an unusual treatment option, but it can provide extremely effective results for some patients. However, the viability of this option will vary from one patient to another, and it is important to undergo a consultation to learn whether this is an option for you.

Will The Newly Transplanted Hair Start To Grow Immediately?

Hair transplant patients will often assume that their new hair will immediately start to grow. However, it can actually take several weeks to months before it will be able to effectively grow on its own. Once the hair follicle has recovered, you will be able to treat the transplanted hair as you would your original hair. Some activities may be discouraged, such as bleaching the hair, but these are activities that are typically discouraged for all hair loss patients due to the stress that they can cause the hair follicles.

Will You Need To Undergo Hair Restoration Maintenance Treatments?

The more natural appearance of hair transplants is not the only benefit that it can provide as this procedure will also offer patients extremely durable results. However, it should be noted that the hair transplant may not stop the underlying cause of the patient's hair loss. As a result, some patients may need to undergo maintenance treatments to preserve the appearance of their hair. Luckily, most patients should only need these supplementary treatments after a couple of years or longer. To minimize the intensity of the maintenance procedure, patients should consider scheduling it as soon as they notice that their hair is starting to thin.
