Permanent Hair Loss Isn’t So Permanent!

Watching your hair go and not being able to do anything about it can be frustrating. You must have tried a bunch of over-the-counter medications but none of them are working. You keep losing more hair and none of its growing back. Unfortunately, this hair loss could be permanent. Fortunately, there are ways you can regrow your hair. Yes, even in areas that suffer permanent hair loss. 

Your hair strands grow from a complex structure of cells called the hair follicles. Usually, a strand of hair lasts for about three months. After three months, the old strand of hair falls off naturally to make way for younger hair. However, hair follicles can’t do this forever. When they get damaged, they’ll stop functioning properly. These damaged hair follicles won’t be able to able to replace lost hair.

Sometimes this damage can be permanent. When that happens, areas of your scalp will become bald. Some of the common causes of permanent damage to hair follicles are stress, the effects of aging, an unhealthy lifestyle, and hormonal imbalances. A person’s own genes could also be a deciding factor for permanent hair loss.

Is There a Solution?

There are a lot of sprays, pills, and oils to reduce hair loss. But, these medications aren’t a guaranteed cure for every person. If you’re one of those unfortunate people, you don’t have to worry. Hair transplantation could be your solution.

It’s a procedure that guarantees permanent hair growth. It’s done by transplanting healthy follicles from areas with normal hair growth. This area of the scalp is called the donor area. The extracted follicles are then carefully positioned onto areas of the scalp suffering from permanent hair loss. These transplanted follicles will mature and give rise to new hair growth. 

How Do They Do It?

There are two methods of hair transplantation - Follicular Unit Transplantation and Follicular Unit Extraction.

Follicular Unit Transplantation involves removing strips of skin from your scalp. Sometimes, multiple strips of skin might have to be harvested from your scalp to get the required amount of hair follicles. The hair follicles are extracted from these strips and transplanted onto the bald areas.

This hair transplant method could result in wounds and visible scars. These could take time to heal.
This is because large strips of skin are removed from your scalp.

Follicular Unit Extraction is another hair transplant method. It’s better than FUT because no major cuts or incisions are made. During the procedure, precise instruments are used to extract the hair follicles directly from the scalp. This provides better quality grafts for the transplantation process. These extracted follicles are then transplanted onto areas of permanent hair loss. This will lead to new hair growth.

Here’s a Suggestion

Kaya’s Expert Hair Transplant Solution also uses Follicular Unit Extraction for hair transplant. It’s minimally invasive and is performed without making cuts or incisions. This means your scalp is safe from scars and major wounds. The scalp is injected with anesthesia to extract the hair follicles without causing pain.

Grafts are prepared from these follicles and transplanted onto the bald areas. Kaya Clinic also injects the scalp with Platelet-Rich Plasma. This wonderful concoction will nourish the follicles to accelerate the growth of new hair.

After the transplantation is completed, you must be careful not to damage the follicles. The doctor will give you all the advice you need to take care of them. In about three to four months, the transplanted follicles will start producing brand new hair. This hair can still be quite weak and brittle. But you don’t have to worry. After about eight months, the hair will become thick and full.  

Doctors will always advise people to first try sprays, oils, or pills to cure hair loss. In the unfortunate case that these medications fail, hair regrowth by hair transplant could be your next best option!
