Hair is your identity sign. It is that element that generates attractiveness and adds value to your image. But, one day, you begin to feel like a stranger in front of the mirror. It is that inevitable moment in the life of many men, and also in that of some women. And, unless you’re one of those lucky ones who retain an enviable hair density, the most likely thing is that alopecia comes into your life from one moment to the next.
Alopecia is the most common dermatological disease. It affects 1 in every 2 men throughout their lives, and approximately 25% of Caucasian women have this problem between 35 and 45 years of age; a percentage that rises to 35% as we approach 50 years.
And it is not, far from it, a minor problem; Hair loss causes frustration in the person who suffers, who sees perpetrate a constant and widespread hair loss, which can cause serious problems of self-esteem and affect the quality of life.
If you love your hair, you probably have tried some pharmacological treatment and, of course, all kinds of tricks to disguise that incipient fall.
But, realistically, the only way to be the hairy one you once were is the hair microtransplant.
How to deal with hair loss?
In more than 95% of cases, hair loss occurs as a result of androgenetic alopecia, a set of factors of hormonal and hereditary origin.
“It consists of a set of hormonal and hereditary factors affecting only the front and top of the head,” as pointed out by Doctor Horacio Foglia, medical director of Medical Hair Spain, a leading center in hair medicine.
It is true that many causes, such as nutrition problems or stress, can weaken the hair follicle and cause hair loss. But the cases in which the hair follicle cannot regenerate are the most frequent: it is called androgenetic alopecia.
What is capillary microtransplant?
If the causes that cause hair loss are hereditary or hormonal, it will be difficult to regenerate lost hair through the stimulation of hair follicles. That is, in many cases, these follicles have been lost, and there is no way to regenerate them except through capillary microtransplant.
The capillary microtransplant by FUE technique consists of extracting one by one the follicular units of the genetically programmed areas so as not to fall, that is, nape and lateral of the head, and then transplant them to the recipient or hairless areas where alopecia is suffered. It is a treatment that is performed under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The patient can resume his normal life the next day.
Medical Hair is a specialist in the performance of capillary megasessions. This means that, in less time, it is possible to transplant more amount of hair. Moreover, when dealing with the patient’s own hair, there is no possibility of rejection and the growth rate is normal, one centimeter per month. The final result will be the year of the transplant.
Since the implanted hair is not affected by androgenetic alopecia, it cannot fall again, so the result is totally natural and lifelong.
The intervention is, for many patients, a change of life and is, without a doubt, the most effective way to recover your mane.
