Those who suffer from severe hair loss or balding may have given up on any hope of successful hair restoration in Palatine, IL. However, even if you only have a few good follicles left, restoration is not out of the question completely. Even though a hair transplant does not stop or slow the thinning of your natural hair and the underlying causes behind the loss, there are a few ways you can maximize the procedure and get the most out of your transplant. In other words, no, being “too bald” doesn’t have to hinder the success of your hair restoration!
Multiple visits are needed
If you are suffering from large-scale hair loss, or you have a very limited number of unharmed follicles, there is still hope for a successful hair transplant. While there may only be a very small area of hair to work with, the hair that is left is genetically resistant to further loss. There will be some limitations when working with such a small sample, but this does at least make a good starting point for the donor area.
It is important to note, though, that if you are suffering from severe hair loss before the procedure, you are likely to need more than one session as you work towards the results you desire. Because the transplant will not have any effect on your existing hair, if it continues to thin as the transplanted hair grows, there will be a noticeable difference in the two areas. The more you go back for repeat treatments, however, the more natural your entire scalp will begin to look.
Improving your chances of success
There are also topical treatments for both men and women that, in concert with multiple hair transplant procedures, can encourage hair growth by extending the growing phase while delaying the shedding and resting phases. Like the hair transplant itself, topical treatments will not be able to alter genetics so that hair thinning is stopped completely, but it will allow for greater density, with more hair having the chance to take hold before shedding occurs.
Hair regeneration, which is often used as an option to thicken hair for younger clients, can also be used with the transplant to improve the chances of graft survival. While complete genetic changes are not possible, hair regeneration’s wound healing properties can trigger adult stem cells to restart, signaling the need for continued hair growth. Regeneration can be done before the transplant to strengthen the hair in the donor area, and both during and after the procedure to thicken the hair and increase the likelihood of the transplant’s success.
