Hair Loss West Palm Beach
Hair loss is a condition that is estimated to affect two-thirds of men and women in the United States. Many lose hair as they age due to their genetic makeup, while others may lose hair due to injury, medication, or tight hairstyles. Thankfully, there is a solution to this widespread problem: FUE hair transplants.
What if you could get ahead of this process?
Male hair loss, also known as male-pattern baldness, is a hereditary trait that affects men starting as early as their 20s and 30s. It usually begins with a receding hairline, and the loss continues through to the back of the scalp, leaving hair only around the ears and at the back. Thankfully, male-pattern baldness typically leaves the hair on the back of the scalp intact, as these follicles are not programmed for balding – and are perfect for transplant technology.
Female Hair Loss
Genetic hair loss for women does not usually result in baldness, but rather overall hair thinning, often appearing first at the part of the hair. For women who wear their hair in tight hairstyles, year after year, it can cause a non-genetic form of hair loss called traction alopecia, which can appear as early as in the 20s or 30s.
Afro-textured Hair Loss
Men and women with dark, curly afro-textured hair are particularly susceptible to hair loss, both due to genetics and hairstyles. Tight cornrows or braids can lead to traction alopecia, and many men and women with afro-textured hair suffer hair loss in their 20s and 30s. The good news: the thickness, density, and color of afro-textured hair mean that hair transplants can be highly effective. A single afro-textured hair covers more scalp area than can be achieved with straight hair.
FUE Hair Transplants: The Solution
While there are many shampoos, creams, lasers, and oral treatments on the market, nothing beats the results available with a hair transplant. Our minimally-invasive FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplants utilize advanced surgical techniques to extract individual hair follicles from random areas on the back of your scalp to be grafted into thinning or balding areas. Unlike earlier methods that resulted in a linear scar on the back of the head, FUE hair transplants only create tiny circular scars that are almost impossible to see. The benefits of an FUE hair transplant include:
- Effective and long-lasting results for a more youthful appearance
- Low downtime and easy recovery
- Most men and women are candidates
