Hair Restoration in Charlotte, NC
Losing one’s hair can be devastating to both appearance and self-esteem. In the past decade, major advancements have been made in hair restoration for both men and women. Hair restoration includes the medical, non-surgical, and surgical treatment of various forms of hair loss. No longer does hair restoration result in the obvious and unattractive “hair plug” appearance.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss, or alopecia, results when the scalp fails to replace naturally lost or damaged hair with new growth. During a hair strand’s normal life cycle, it goes through a growing phase, a resting period, and a hair loss phase. At any given time, a full head of hair contains strands in all three growth phases to create an even, healthy head of hair. Since humans are constantly shedding hair, the loss of this new hair can become obvious very quickly.
Alopecia is caused by a combination of factors including genetics, hormones and environmental influences. Health issues play a role as well—such as deficiencies within the diet, autoimmune diseases or metabolic disorders.
Do Women Experience Alopecia?
Yes. Hair loss isn’t only for men. An estimated 20 to 30 million American women suffer from varying degrees of hair loss. In comparison, about 35 million American men experience male pattern baldness.
How Are Stem Cells Used in Hair Restoration?
As part of a hair restoration or transplant regimen, a mixture of natural growth factors and stem cells can be used to stimulate new hair growth or minimize the risk of transplant “shock.” The stem cells are either derived from adipose tissue (fatty deposits) or are sparsely and gently harvested from other parts of the head with healthier hair growth.
Studies are currently being done to examine the long-term effects of stem cells and growth factors on hair restoration and hair transplants. In particular, the NeoGraft™ Follicle Unit Extraction technique has been shown to provide more precise control of hair type, density and stream for a more natural hair orientation and appearance. This method, used by both men and women, transfers healthy hair follicles from areas of abundance to areas of baldness and can be combined with stem cell treatment in one outpatient treatment for more dramatic results.
Patients favor the NeoGraft™ method for its outstanding results. In addition, when compared to traditional surgical techniques, this approach is less invasive and does not require the removal of a strip of hair. The end result is a head of hair that looks completely natural.
