When to Consider Hair Restoration?
Anyone who is unhappy with the current growth and thickness of their hair may consider hair restoration. However, specific solutions will vary for people with different types of hair loss. Candidates should learn about the new treatments available today by reading over the Internet or seek a consultation at a qualified medspa to know about their best treatment options.
In general, a healthy person may consider hair restoration procedures when:
- They have thinning hair
- They suffer from bald spots
- They have a receding hairline
Individuals with the following attributes will usually make ideal candidates for hair restoration procedures:
- Suffering from male or female pattern baldness
- Having increasingly thinning hair
- The hair loss is not temporary, and not an outcome of medication, stress or some medical treatment
- The hair loss is causing personal cosmetic concern
- Certain areas of the head still have sufficient hair growth and follicles that can be utilized for grafting
- The patient recognizes that the treatment and results can take several months or over a year
- The patient is in good general health, has a positive state of mind, and reasonable expectations
Candidates with realistic expectations will understand the hair restoration process will take time, and may involve periods of temporary hair shedding, re-growth, and slow progress. They should be committed to the treatment plan as advised by the hair restoration expert.
Some people may have experienced hair loss due to trauma or burn injury, or following other cosmetic procedures. They can also benefit from hair restoration treatments. Some men who have been losing hair for several years and if their pattern has stabilized, they can add some new hair to achieve a more youthful look.
If the candidate is looking for a permanent hair replacement procedure such as SmartGraft, they should have an adequate amount of hair in the donor sites of the scalp. In case of male candidates, the sites will be typically at the back and sides of the scalp. Male baldness will usually occur in the top and front of the scalp. Hair in the donor sites can be used for grafting in the recipient areas for uniform hair re-growth.
While age is not a rigid criterion to determine candidacy for hair restoration, a permanent hair replacement procedure is often suited for candidates above the age of 40. In case of younger men, the nature of growth patterns can be unpredictable, particularly when they are below the age of 30.
This may make some of them less suitable candidates. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for hair restoration.
