Hair Retention And Restoration Methods

Not everyone is a candidate for a hair transplant and it does have limitations as the donor resource is finite; also it is not a cure for hair loss, so if utilised to repair minor hair loss, small hair line creation, future sessions will be required as hair loss continues to sustain a natural look

A treatment programme as such is not hair restoration but trying to sustain the growth of the existing hair and even make the hairs stronger, but it does rely on the individual having relatively strong hair as it will not regrow lost hair

Non-surgical hair replacement normally refers to the use of wigs or other terms that describe a fine synthetic layer that real or artificial hair is sewn or bonded into and then attached to the hair or scalp with either clips, tape or a semi-permanent bonding adhesive

Hair restoration or retention can fall into three different categories, a treatment programme, non-surgical hair replacement and surgical hair restoration; each can have their own benefits for the right individual and care should be taken to research

Surgical hair restoration has been around for some decades now in the newest sense of the method; it has evolved into two techniques known as FUT and FUE, and relies on the hair bearing areas around the sides and back of the scalp that contain genetically strong hair follicles that can be removed and placed in the area of hair loss

Assuming the individual is a good candidate and with correct planning a hair transplant can be a good option; once performed and the hair growing it behaves no different to as before, it will grow and require cutting

Hair replacement units have moved forward over the last years with custom-made units; with careful styling they can be an alternative and will ensure total coverage and density over the scalp can be achieved as the hair supply is not yours and so unlimited

Certain draw backs remain that they can require a high degree of maintenance to ensure a natural look is always achieved; as they are man-made they will wear out and need replacing, some within 3 months others a year plus, and you will have to visit a specialist every month for grooming

A treatment programme can be a good option for many, especially in the early stages of hair loss; although results will vary from person to person overall FDA approved treatment programmes can sustain the growth of hair and in many improve the quality of hair growth

Regardless of the hair retention or restoration method you are looking at it is important to always research prior to undergoing any method
