What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?

If you’re experiencing hair loss and looking for a solution, hair restoration could be your perfect solution. It can give you the hair you used to have or the head of hair you’ve always dreamed about. Before deciding to try hair restoration, though, it’s important to do your research. Here are the answers to some of the common questions that people have about hair restoration.

1. What Are My Options?

The term “hair restoration” encompasses a wide variety of procedures suited to treat different levels and types of hair loss. Some treatment options aim to create the best environment on your scalp for hair growth, such as scalp treatment programs and laser/LED treatments. You can also choose a hair transplant, which is a surgical option. Non-surgical hair replacement is high-quality option for men and women experiencing thinning hair and hair loss regardless of cause and regardless of hair type. Today’s modern, totally natural looking hair replacement systems integrate perfectly with your existing hair. Additionally, you can opt for less permanent options such as toppers, wigs, hair pieces and hair extensions.

2. How Does it Work?

After visiting with a Keith’s Haircenter hair loss specialist and completing a hair and scalp analysis you will be presented with hair loss solution options that best fit your needs and desires.  If you qualify for a scalp treatment and laser/LED program, you will start a program that creates the best environment for a healthy scalp and hair growth.  If you qualify for non- surgical hair replacement you will be able to leave a facility with a full head of hair. If you choose a surgical hair transplant procedure, a doctor who specializes in hair transplantation will perform your surgery and your hair will be “transplanted” from the back of the head (donor area) to your thinning area while you are under anesthesia.

3. Will it Hurt?

Scalp treatments and laser/led treatments are painless. The laser is a “cool” laser and there is no thermal component.  Non-surgical hair replacement is non-invasive and painless.  With advancements in anesthesia and hair transplant techniques, discomfort is minimized.   After a hair transplant, a patient’s scalp will be sensitive for a few weeks.

4. Will it Look Fake?

Many people worry that non-surgical hair replacement systems will just look like a bad toupee. However, today’s state-of-the-art hair replacement technology offers results that are virtually indistinguishable from your real growing hair, matching your normal hair growth patterns, color and texture, making it virtually undetectable, even up close and personal. Additionally, non-surgical hair replacement offers the ability to style your hair any way you like and wear your hair in any length. At the end of the day, your hair will look completely natural.

5. Can I Stay Active?

If you have an active lifestyle, you might worry that certain hair restoration procedures are not an option for you. However, hair replacement techniques will not hold you back from any activities. Initially applied by a professional, these hair grafts become a part of you while playing sports, biking, swimming, and even riding a motorcycle. Hair restoration can greatly improve your appearance and your life, and it will never hold you back from your activities.

6. Can I Afford it

Many people losing their hair fear that the only solutions will be too costly for them to afford. However, hair replacement is surprisingly affordable.

7. How Long Will It Take to See Results?

Depending on the procedure, there are different periods of time you’ll have to wait to achieve your desired results from hair restoration procedures. For hair loss treatments such as Laser Hair Therapy, it will take six months to a year you to see real hair regrowth. If you opt for hair transplant surgery, it will take six months to one full year to achieve your desired results. If you choose non-surgical hair replacement, you can see the results in just one afternoon.

8. Am I a Candidate?

If you’re considering hair restoration, you might worry that you’re not the right candidate. However, hair restoration can work for anyone regardless of age, gender, or degree of hair loss. Because there are so many different options, there is an option to suit every degree of hair loss, from mild thinning to complete baldness.
