All of a sudden, the look in the mirror is not as comforting anymore. The reason: Your hair is getting thinner and thinner, and in some places there are receding hairlines. A hair thickening can definitely help you with hair loss. Learn everything about the topic of denser hair through transplantation in this article.
With this permanent solution to hair loss, you can say goodbye once and for all to bald spots on your head. What exactly happens when you want to thicken your hair? Which methods are available for carrying out a hair transplant? And what kind of cost can you expect?
Hair thickening against hair loss – how does it actually work?
Basically, it is the same process: When speaking of a hair thickening, it translates to a hair transplant. A hair transplant fills bald patches with the client’s own hair. This means strong hair roots are removed from a donor area – usually at the back of the head – in order to put them back in the affected areas. The result is permanently denser hair without experiencing renewed hair loss.
At best, a hair thickening procedure needs to be done only once. As a minimally invasive procedure it involves little risk, provides you with greater hair volume and thereby as well with a younger look – within just one year! However, an important prerequisite is that enough strong transplantable hair roots are available in the donor area.
For which types of hair loss does hair thickening make sense?
Both men and women are affected by genetic alopecia, hereditary hair loss. This type of hair loss is the most suitable for conducting a hair transplant. It is recognizable by a receding hairline which increases with time, specifically in men a bald spot at the back of the head as well as an ever-brighter parting of the hair in women.
For other forms of hair loss, it is advisable to first consult with a specialist or doctor as alopecia may have other causes than a genetic predisposition. In this case you should specifically research the reasons and fight against the cause of your hair loss.
Other forms of alopecia are:
- Scattered hair loss/li>
- Circular hair loss
- Folliculitis Decalvans
- Hair loss due to radiation therapy
- Hair loss due to injury (accident, surgery, etc.)
In all forms, an important prerequisite for a hair transplant to work is that enough donor hair is present. In any case, wounds have to be healed completely, and excessive scar formation can reduce the success of a hair thickening.
The exact progress of a hair thickening does depend on the method of the treating specialist. In the next section you will find the advantages of the modern FUE method which is the main treatment performed by My Perfect Hair Clinic.
Regain a full head of hair with the FUE method
The so-called FUE method – or single follicle removal – is a minimally invasive procedure that leads to the best possible result. Besides not requiring a complete shave of the head, additionally, the treatment hardly causes any pain.
Furthermore, you also don’t have to worry about scarring because with the FUE method the hair follicles are removed with a hollow needle. Thus – unlike other methods such as FUT – not a whole strip of skin is needed from the donor area which then leaves behind an unattractive scar.
Advantages of the FUE method
- Precise removal of donor hair
- Minimally invasive procedure
- No scar
- No pain
- After a relatively short period of time you will look socially acceptable again
A hair transplant using the FUE method is therefore definitely a promising solution in the struggle with hair loss and for denser hair. At My Perfect Hair Clinic, we are happy to advise you on this treatment method and other means which can help you get back to fuller hair again.
What are the possible costs of a hair thickening?
If you want a reliably and well performed hair transplant, you will have to expect a mid-four-digit price tag. However, the actually price is based on three factors: your individual initial situation, based on this the necessary extent of the treatment and the technology used.
Individual situation before hair transplantation
Of course, your personal initial situation influences the costs in the way that it influences the extent to which a hair thickening has to be carried out at all. Here, it is examined here how far advanced your hair loss has progressed and in what kind of condition your remaining hair is. In addition, key stats such as age, your condition of health and your diet also play an important part.
Scope of treatment, number of grafts
Depending on how much your hair loss has already progressed, the scope of treatment needs to be adjusted. As a standard, My Perfect Hair Clinic will compile a fixed price offer which is derived from the expected scope of the planned procedure.
Method of hair thickening
Because the FUE method is a very accurate, high quality method, the price is higher than other treatments (such as the FUT method).
Your advantage with My Perfect Hair Clinic at this point is that a price is set in advance. Therefore you don’t have to expect unpleasant surprises after the treatment.
After an extensive first consultation and the exact consideration of your initial situation by our experts, it is already possible to determine very precisely how many grafts are needed for a successful transplantation.
The result: permanent hair thickening
Hair transplantation is a permanent solution to hair loss. Its simplicity can be explained by the genetic makeup of hair roots: they never lose their genetic information over the course of a lifetime. This means that particularly strong growing hair roots will continue to grow as strong, even after they have been transplanted to another location.
At the same time, such permanent hair thickening bears little risk. The procedure can prevent you from suffering from a complete bald head at some point in life. In addition, with a hair transplant hair loss in women can be stopped, as well as gaps in the beard or eyebrows can be closed.
The decisive advantage here is that even a one-time intervention results in a considerable improvement in your hair growth.
In other words, instead of a possibly permanent medication and the associated side effects, it remains a one-time financial expense – without continuous treatment. Only in exceptional cases, a hair transplantation should be performed again.
What you need to know after the transplantation?
You will not be able to see any changes right after the procedure. Both donor and transplant areas first have to heal completely before the hair roots can regain their natural hair growth.
Therefore, you should be overly careful within the first few days and weeks. Salty food, alcohol and direct sunlight should be avoided until the treated areas have healed completely. After one to two weeks you can slowly start to pursue light physical activities again.
During the healing phase, the transplanted hair roots are recovering from the procedure. This includes that you will find the transplanted hair falling out again. But don’t panic, that is actually perfectly normal.
After about half a year you will finally see first results. At the previously bald spots light hair growth will have taken place and it will further intensify over the course of the next 6 months.
After a year, finally, the finished result is achieved: Thicker hair, no bald spots on the head and finally no more incrementing hair loss.
Conclusion: Fight the hair loss with hair thickening
Thanks to state-of-the-art procedures and extensive treatment by an experienced specialist, a hair transplant can save you from further hair loss. In this case, natural hair is taken from a donor area at the back of the head and transplanted to the bald spots on the head.
The benefits of this treatment are that it is largely painless, low in risk and without scarring. Therefore you don’t need to fear any visible traces of the procedure.
You can look forward to permanently denser hair growth. As a rule, a hair transplant is completed after a single procedure, which means continuous medication to fight hair loss is not necessary.
