Skin care and wellness tips to help you look and feel your best.

Patchy hair and spot baldness can be a cause of great distress, as well as affect your self-esteem. Hair loss is a condition that affects half of men and Women by age 50, and three things are to blame – genetics/hormones, the aging process, or female pattern baldness. Hair restoration is a popular procedure for both men and women. A million people every year choose to undergo this surgery to improve their hair’s appearance. Fortunately, several options are available for those who want to restore their hair.

In this blog post, we will discuss six things that you should know about hair restoration!


1. Hair Transplant Candidates:

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the
donor site, to a bald or balding area of the body known as the recipient site. If you are considering hair
restoration, it is essential to consult with a qualified surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for
the procedure.

The best candidates for hair transplant surgery are those who:

  1. Are in good overall health
  2. Have realistic expectations
  3. Have enough donor’s hair
  4. Do not smoke
  5. Are willing to take care of their transplanted hair
  6. Understand the risks and potential complications associated with surgery.

A qualified, experienced hair restoration surgeon should only perform that painful surgical procedure.

2. Recovery and Return to Work:

After your Hair Restoration Surgery, you will need time off to recover. Depending on the extent of your
procedure, this could be a few days to a week. You may experience some swelling and bruises around the incision
sites. You will also need to keep your head elevated and iced as much as possible to reduce swelling. You will
likely be able to return to work after a few days, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at least a week.

After you have recovered from your surgery, you will notice a significant difference in the appearance of your
hair. Your new hair will be fuller and thicker than before, and it will continue to grow over the next few
months. Most people see the full results of their surgery within six to twelve months. Once your new hair has
grown in, you will be able to style it however you like. Talk to your surgeon if you have any questions or
concerns about your recovery. They will be able to give you specific instructions and help you through the
recovery process.

3. Realistic Expectations:

When considering hair restoration, it is essential to have realistic expectations. That means understanding that
the results will not be immediate and that there is a chance that the procedure may not be 100% successful. Part
of the reason why so many people are disappointed with this surgery is that they have unrealistic expectations.
They see a photo of a celebrity who has had successful surgery and assume they will look the same afterward.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that.

Every patient is different and will experience different results. It is essential to have realistic expectations
before undergoing surgery. You should consult with a surgeon to find out what results are possible for you.

4. Is the transplanted hair permanent?

The answer is yes, the transplanted hair is permanent. The follicles transplanted from the donor site to the
balding area are genetically programmed to grow for a lifetime. However, it is essential to note that not all
patients will achieve 100% coverage of their balding areas. Sometimes, patients may require more than one hair
transplant procedure to achieve their desired results.

It is also important to remember that the transplanted hair will require the same care as your natural hair.
That means you will need to use shampoo, conditioner, and other hair products to keep your hair healthy and
looking its best.

    • Aftercare:

      After your hair restoration procedure, it is essential to follow all of your doctor’s instructions for care.
      That will help ensure the best possible results. Generally, you will need to avoid washing your hair for the
      first few days. You may also need to use a special shampoo and avoid sun exposure.

      It is also important to avoid strenuous activity and to sleep with your head elevated for the first few days.
      That will help prevent bleeding and swelling.

    • Medication:

      Following your doctor’s instructions for medication and care is essential if you have recently undergone hair
      restoration surgery. That will help ensure that your hair grows back healthy and strong. In most cases, you will
      be prescribed a course of antibiotics to prevent infection and pain medication from helping with any discomfort.
      You should take all medications as directed and finish the entire course.

      It is also essential to keep your head clean and dry for the first week or so after surgery. You can get
      instructions from a doctor to use a special shampoo and conditioner. Be sure to follow these instructions
      carefully. After a few days, you can resume your regular hair care routine.

Skincare is important, but you can overdo it. The perfect balance of products should leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft to the touch. It shouldn’t feel tight, dry, or “squeaky clean.” We recommend discussing how much products to use, with your medical provider/aesthetician.

Skincare products do not last forever. Once opened, these products have a limited shelf life. The exposure to air and bacteria over time can break them down. If used past the expiration date, the product may not be effective or could cause an adverse reaction.

There are many treatments available at either a dayspa or a medspa. A medspa can treat more difficult skin issues, and the providers at a medspa have a background in, and are usually licensed to perform medical aesthetic procedures.  Another difference that separates the two is that, at a medspa, a medical doctor oversees the treatments.
