Contrary to popular belief, hair loss can occur as much in women as it does in men. The problem occurs for a variety of reasons; however, not a lot of women are aware that they are guilty of some habits that are actually causing the loss of their treasured hair. HuffingtonPost.com contributor Jessica Dysart listed down those undesirable habits, including too much blow drying, brushing hair when it’s still wet, and tying a ponytail too tight when going for a swim in one of the lovely beaches in Mexico.
Fortunately, women—and men—who are experiencing thinning hair have several options in hair restoration in Mexico to regain their once-glorious locks, from topical medications like minoxidil to hair transplantation. The latter involves grafting a strip of hair from a person’s scalp and then placing it in the area where there’s noticeable hair loss. However, this option is not a “one-size, fits all” solution. One has to be the right candidate first.
The Follicular Unit Extraction or FUT technique for hair transplants in Mexico calls for the removal of a narrow strip of scalp. It’s from this strip where hair follicles will be extracted and then transplanted or grafted to the balding areas. For the procedure to work, individuals must have at least a small area where hair still grows. Thus, hair grafting isn’t recommended for those who’ve experienced complete hair loss.
Also, those who have just started experiencing hair loss are recommended to wait it out first. Having a hair transplantation done at an early stage can lead to shock loss where the hair suffers from the effects of the process. It would be wise for these individuals to seek the advice of hair transplant surgeons to know when the right time is.
As with any surgical intervention, a hair transplant isn’t advisable for heavy smokers since the habit makes them prone to complication risks. Thus, men and women who are serious about undergoing the procedure are recommended to control or completely eliminate their smoking habit.
For some people, hair loss can be a significant blow to their confidence. Fortunately, a hair transplant can be an effective solution for those hoping to have their hair restored and regain their self-esteem. However, a comprehensive evaluation by doctors in hair loss clinics like Baja Hair Center is necessary so individuals can know whether or not they are good candidates for surgery.
