Do you lose hair in the shower everyday? Does your hairbrush have more hair than your head does? Is your hairline receding? Does your hair grow in patches?
Thinning hair and balding can be truly upsetting. And here’s the bomb. There are many, many reasons why we lose our hair : from using bad hair products to hereditary factors.
The truth is, around 30% of the adult population suffers from some degree of hair loss. The problem intensifies as people grow older, and hear this: thinning hair and balding is more common among men than women.
Male baldness may be caused by genetic factors and hereditary reasons. The most common of which is Androgenic Alopecia or Male Pattern Baldness wherein the hair follicles become sensitive to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that produces testosterone, resulting in the falling out of hair follicles. Hair in frontal hairline and crown areas are most sensitive to DHT and are the first to go. Over time, a horse-shoe shaped pattern of hair loss results.
Balding may also be caused by stress, disease, injuries, hormonal change like menopause, cosmetic procedures and some hair products. Thus women are not exempted from experiencing hair loss at all.
But even though adults may experience thinning hair at some point in their lives, the situation can be remedied. There are topical solutions, oral medicines and natural products like aloe that can help reduce hair loss. But the easiest, surest and only permanent way to restore lost hair is via a hair transplant procedure.
What is a hair transplant procedure? The principle of hair transplantation consists of transferring hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding (that is, hair located at the back of the head), to the bald or thinning area.
Hair transplant procedures can be via the original method of Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) or the more advanced Follicular Unit Extration (FUE). MAXiM, an American hair transplant clinic, performs MEGA Sessions for both FUT and FUE. It allows clients to grow a good head of hair from just one visit. Hair density can also be achieved via the non-surgical approach of Scalp Micropigmentation. FUE and FUT results are permanent, while scalp micropigmentation lasts from 6 to 8 years. For almost 12 years now, MAXiM Hair Restoration has been offering all three procedures to innumerable clients at a very competitive price.
