Hair transplant briefly explained
The most common use of hair transplantation is hormonal hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). The hair roots are hypersensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) formed in the body and precipitate prematurely. This hypersensitivity is genetic and, sooner or later, will affect most men. First, the hair on the forehead, temples and upper head less, later remains in heavily affected only a hair ring left.Why the hair on the back does not fail has a simple reason. The local hair roots are relatively insensitive to the hormone (DHT). That’s why the hair on the back of the head does not fall out. And it is exactly these resistant hairs that can be transplanted with their roots well to the places where the more sensitive relatives have previously failed. This is how the transplantation of the own hair works.It does not have to be 100% transplanted so that the hair looks pretty dense and full. Usually half is enough to have visually full hair.Another reason for hair loss is skin diseases or rarely even injuries. Diseases such as alopecia areata can cause a circular pattern of hair loss that unfortunately persists.
When is a hair transplant necessary?
If the hair loss is permanent, then hair transplantation is the most consistent way to get back full hair. Previously, a medical attempt can be made that tends to produce useful results in women. Whether you want or can take long-term medication should be discussed with the doctor.
Also, you should not do the hair transplantation at a very early stage of hair loss. Ideal is the time when the hair loss has already come to a halt. So from the age of over 30 years. This is intended to prevent clear areas from forming again after hair transplantation.
Although hair transplantation is in many cases suitable and brings good results, a detailed consultation with the specialist in any case is recommended.
