Procedures for BaldnessBaldness is a condition that is usually associated with men. However, women also fall victim to this condition. In women, baldness is typically associated with hormone changes that come about because of menopause, pregnancy, and other life changes. Just like it happens in men, baldness has also been found to occur in different cycles. At first, women detect thinning of hair until baldness ensues.
The Effects of BaldnessThe effects of baldness in both men and women can be very devastating especially to one’s self-confidence, self-esteem, body image, and sexuality. Many people are embarrassed to have bald spots and thinning hair. Consequently, this has made them seek out cures for baldness in their endeavor to cope with this condition. Since the effects of this condition are psychologically challenging especially for women, it is important to correct the issues early enough. There are so many ways that can delay this condition, which includes standard medication, hair transplantation, and scalp micropigmentation. In this piece, we will look at what hair transplantation is and a few insights about scalp micropigmentation.
What is Hair TransplantationsHair transplantation is a cosmetic process that is used to help people get hair that they lost. In a nutshell, hair transplantation is all about creating new and healthy hair strands and then planting them into the balding areas. Traditionally, hair transplant surgeons had to get several hair locks from other areas where there was hair and then transfer them to bald or thinning areas.
Hair transplantation works because of the idea that like plants, human hair follicles also reproduce. This means that when you split a hair follicle twice, you will get two pieces of hair that will emerge successfully after the process when the available technology is used for culturing and growing the hairs. When this technology is used properly to develop, it can clone the follicles and replicate them for a thousand or millions times. Finally, it will come up with uncountable hair strands which can then be used to fill the scalp areas.
It is important to note that not all women are ideal for this procedure. This procedure cannot resolve some women's balding issue. In such scenarios, it the doctor should decide who can undergo the process and who is not eligible. Women who are likely to undergo the procedure include those who have diffuse balding and those who have high hairlines. Diffuse balding is a type of balding that is not only limited to the scalp’s top. In this scenario, balding can be on the sides, on the back and the top of the head. With diffuse balding, it is possible to harvest hair from areas with plenty and their transplant to the bald areas. On the other hand, women with high hairlines usually have very stable patterns of hair growth. They also have a hair supply donor that is very strong making it possible to transplant.
Scalp MicropigmentationThose who are suffering from hair loss have very high chances that they may have tried to hide it as much as possible. You can use hoodies, caps and other things to cover your head so that people don’t see what is happening on your head’s top. However, all this solution will not help you as such because they are just temporary. Your head doesn’t have enough hair, and sooner or later those people who are around you will realize what is going on.
This is where scalp micropigmentation comes in handy. The process of scalp micropigmentation makes you look like you shaved your head recently or opted for a buzz-cut. The overall will be that your head will look convincing as this process will make it neat as well as stylish, especially when this is complemented with something like a short stubble. Scalp micropigmentation involves applying dots to your head that mimics your hair follicles on the bald area to give it hair follicles illusion. There are various pigment colors, needle angles, penetration depths and needle thickness which can be applied in one session to accomplish this.
In retrospective, it is worth the mention that there are many benefits associated with hair loss treatments. The bottom line is that people’s motives of carrying out either process are the appearance of hair in the scalp areas that look beautiful and natural.
