Everyone wants thick voluminous hair that stays forever. But seeing your hair fall can make your
heart pound faster and your head spin sometimes. What to do and what treatment to start is a big
dilemma in may people’s mind. Some suggest a hair transplant some suggest against it. So, who
needs it and who doesn’t – who is to know? Let’s try to understand it.
Whether you need #Hair Transplant or not, to know this we first need to understand a few things.
What is Hair Transplant? Where it is needed?
Hair transplant is essentially a redistribution of hair from a permanent high density area (back of
scalp, beard, chest) to an area which is bald or excessively low in hair density; which in most
cases is the top of the head.
People who mostly desire for a hair transplant are:
Patterned Hair loss patient.
people who want their hairline to be more dense and more in front.
People who have suffered some injury on scalp and lost hair from that portion.
Scarring hair loss.
Hair loss management is easy but tricky at the same time. Right treatment when started at the right
time will help you restore your volume back to normal.
For any hair loss management there essentially are two modes of treatment – medical and
Medical therapies includes lotions/serums, tablets and Hair Growth Treatment helps
increase the thickness of individual hair as well as stimulate the growth of dormant lying hair
follicles in the scalp.
Surgical option is where Hair Transplant come in the picture. When you have lost a significant
volume of the hair or the area has completely gone bald, Medicine or Hair Growth Treatment alone are ineffective
since there are no hair follicles present. In such situation, hair from the donor area are taken and
transplanted into the bald area to cover the bald patch and restore the lost volume.
To sum up the medical treatment comes in handy when the hair are thinning and it needs to be
started as soon as possible to prevent the hair loss from progressing to complete baldness.
Once the area has become completely bald, medical management does not work and Hair
transplant is the only options.
If you experience hair loss, consult a qualified Dermatologist for an appropriate early treatment.
