Hair restoration has been revolutionized by the advent of hair restoration technology. There are many reasons for hair loss, and many different techniques are available to solve these problems. One reason that hair loss occurs is due to male pattern hair loss, which is caused by a hormonal or genetic disorder. This disease can cause hair to fall out in clumps rather than being replaced by new hair growth.
Does Hair Transplant Work?
Hair restoration technology has come a long way in the past decade or so, especially in regard to procedures such as follicular unit transplantation, plucking, and frontal hairline transplanting. Follicular unit transplantation is the most common type of procedure in which hair restoration surgery is performed; this procedure uses living donor hair from a donor area of the scalp. It is the most effective hair restoration method because it uses natural donor hair that does not shed onto the patient’s head. A local anesthesia is used during the procedure so that the patient can experience little to no pain and is able to recover quickly.
Frontal hairline and follicular unit extraction (FUE) both use a local anesthetic and local vacuum to deliver the live hair cells from the donor areas to the recipient areas. However, FUE is more painful than hair restoration transplantation because it involves the use of local anesthetic combined with nitrous oxide to desiccate the scalp and prepare it for transplanting. As a result, many doctors now prefer to perform both procedures using only local anesthetics.
