Hair loss is extremely common and is something that almost everyone is likely to experience at a period of their life. Hair loss can occur for a variety of different reasons, such as alopecia, aging, and stress. As there are different causes of hair loss, there are also a variety of treatments.
Some types of hair loss, such as stress related hair loss, will resume the normal growth phase after a few months, and will, in most cases, need no medical attention. However, other types of hair loss such as Androgenetic Alopecia and Non-Pattern hair loss will need to be treated to prompt regrowth. In some cases, this can be done through medication or through the popular FUE hair transplant method.
What is a hair transplant?
How does a hair transplant work?
The scalp area that is to receive the grafts is then punctured with the use of a specialist micro surgical needle. Surgeons then insert each hair graft into the scalp at an angle and density that will match the original hair.
