Hair loss is quite a common problem amongst people of all gender. Bald spots cause most people to deal with embarrassment and frustration since it affects someone's confidence. Coping with the issue can be challenging, but accepting that your hair may be falling off is the first step to dealing with this problem. According to statistics, more than 5.3 million people have Alopecia areata, a recurrent autoimmune type of hair loss in the United States. The National Institute of Health indicates that Androgenetic alopecia is the leading cause of hair loss amongst 50 million males and 30 million females in the United States. Most males report having signs of baldness at the age of 70, and women also experience hair thinning by the time they are turning 70. Other causes of bald spots include poor nutrition, hormonal imbalance, stress, and cancer treatments. Here are various techniques to help regrow hair in bald spots.

Laser Therapy Treatment

Laser therapy for hair thinning and loss works by irradiating protons into scalp tissue, which are then absorbed by weaker cells to encourage hair growth. It is highly used since the procedure is termed as safe and tolerable compared to hair transplant treatment, which is more invasive. The low-dosage of treatment helps in stimulating hair follicles. This method is safe to use for everyone and helps avoid premature catagen development. It also lengthens the anagen phase duration and improves the process of proliferation in active anagen hair follicles.

Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is a more long-lasting hair replacement solution, but on the other hand, it's more invasive and expensive. Recent improvements in technology have come up with multi therapeutic hair transplant treatment, which delivers long-lasting results for both men and women. During the procedure, hair is removed from an area on your body and transplanted into the scalp. The hair is removed from an area where the patient is not likely to suffer from hair loss. Here are two types of hair transplant techniques that are commonly practiced today.

Follicular Unit Transplant

During the treatment, a large section of the tissue is removed from the area donating the hair, mainly the scalp's side or back area. It is then separated into single follicular units, mainly containing 1-4 hairs. Once the hair implants are all pre-selected accordingly, they are implanted into the patient using microscopic incisions in the bald area.

Follicular Unit Extraction

The process involves singular hair follicles being harvested directly from one area of the body and then transplanted into the scalp through microscopic incisions in bald patches. The follicles are well-prepped to determine which ones are more suitable for the transplant process. While the two procedures are viable, you need a certified professional to help you determine the process that best suits you.

Improving your hair quality may take some time to yield noticeable results. The above remedies can be useful, but you can look into other home-made solutions. This may include taking the supplement or using essential oils on your scalp. Taking the extra mile to practice self-care can be beneficial if you are experiencing hair loss due to stress. Ensure also to talk with your local physician about the medical procedures that will work for you if home remedies don't seem to work.
