NeoGraft: Regrowing Hair is Possible
Losing a few hairs is nothing to worry over; in fact, we can lose a few each day without concern. With the average human scalp containing around 100,000 hairs, there’s no need to panic about the strands you see in the shower or on your brush.
However, permanent hair loss is a real condition that many men and women both face. In the past patients didn’t have many options and spent their dollars on hair treatments and restorative products that never delivered.
These outdated treatments never got to the root of the hair loss issue, but at EVEXIAS™ Medical Center, you can bet our team of medical experts will make that our priority.
While a healthy diet and lifestyle choices can certainly improve hair loss concerns, baldness boils down to a simple thing: genetics.
Apart from genetics, certain illnesses and diseases can also spark hair loss. If you’re worried that your genes are behind your baldness, we have an option for you. Read on to learn more about NeoGraft hair transplants.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Like we said above, there are various factors. Here’s a quick look at some of the common explanations for hair loss in men and women. While both men and women experience hair loss, the cause can be very different.
Usually, men are dealing with male-pattern baldness. This is due to the hair follicles in the temple and crown area being susceptible to a hormone called DHT. This hormone can attack the hair follicles in a way that kills them and prevents hair from growing back.
Women may experience hair loss thanks to a variety of factors, like hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiency, and stress. Stress is the most common cause of women’s hair loss.
What Can You Do About It?
Like with many medical concerns, certain lifestyle changes should be implemented to ensure the success of treatment as well as to enhance the outcomes.
Before we get into viable treatment options, take a look at these lifestyle changes, and keep track of the ones you’ve already made and ones you should try to incorporate into your routine.
“You are what you eat.” This statement is true to a certain extent. When we lack essential nutrients like Vitamin A, B, C, D, and E on top of a deficiency in zinc, biotin, or iron our body will manifest red flags, like causing hair loss.
When you lack these nutrients, your body may respond by causing your hair to become dry and brittle and eventually lead to hair loss. Eggs, berries, fatty fish, avocados, and seeds are among some of the many foods that can promote hair growth.
How many times have you heard that stress is unhealthy? Probably a thousand! And it’s because it’s true. When your stress becomes unmanageable, your body will respond in ways you probably won’t like.
Emotional and psychosocial stress can result in a condition called telogen effluvium, which triggers temporary hair loss. Work on getting your stress under control
Good Hair Care Practices
You make sure you eat well, your stress levels are low, but how are you treating that head of hair? Overwashing, rigorous brushing, overuse of styling products and heat treatments, or even excessive coloring can do serious damage to your hair.
Avoid tugging your hair or using hairstyles that pull on your strands too much, or it may trigger a condition called traction alopecia.
If you’ve made these lifestyle changes and still don’t see improvement or you’d like to bring in an expert in addition to lifestyle changes, here’s a solution — Neograft hair transplants.
What is NeoGraft and How Can it Help Me?
The most advanced and preferred hair transplant technique today is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUE (NeoGraft®) can give you a natural hair restoration with your hair, with little downtime, little discomfort during a procedure performed under only local anesthetic, that leaves no linear scar.
NeoGraft aims to reintroduce thickness and density to your scalp and offers many benefits to other transplanting techniques, such as:
- Minimally invasive
- Shorter recovery period
- Produces a natural-looking hairline
- Less pain than traditional transplants.
What Happens During NeoGraft?
As opposed to traditional methods, the NeoGraft technique doesn’t use the “strip harvesting” method of the past. Instead, during your NeoGraft procedure, follicular units containing 1-4 hairs are harvested individually from the back of the head without a scalpel and zero stitches.
The scalp is punctured, carefully, with tiny holes allowing the hair grafts to be implanted using microsurgical instruments. Many patients are thrilled with a density that matches their original hair and enjoy permanent, natural-looking results.
We encourage each patient to schedule their consultation so they can learn more about the procedure, and we can determine if NeoGraft is the best course of treatment for your needs.
