This is often true if anesthetic techniques are inadequate, but the solution is simple. Find a doctor who has better techniques. Dr. Elliott has lectured internationally on painless anesthesia in hair restoration surgery. He has taught many, many other doctors his techniques. Most importantly, he has had 2 hair transplants and knows how it feels to be a patient.
With poor artistic or surgical techniques, this can be true. Modern hair transplant techniques in the hands of an expert like Dr. Elliott produce results that are undetectable to others, even the person cutting your hair. Dr. Elliott has developed and learned all the skills and techniques needed to correct unnatural results, whether from work done recently or in the past.
Women are also candidates, but their hair loss differs from men’s. If a woman is concerned about hair loss, she should see a hair restoration surgeon like Dr. Elliott, who knows the full range of treatment options. In his experience, women are just as happy with hair transplant results as men.
I’ve heard that medical treatments don’t work for hair loss and have many side effects. Is this true?
Medical treatment works so well that losing your hair is a choice. You can stop it. Dr. Elliott has treated thousands of men and women since 1995, and he sees the benefits daily. He has been on these same treatments since then, and it has saved his hair. Talk to him about the real chances of side effects. He sees them only rarely. Don’t deny yourself the benefits.
The most common is medication such as minoxidil, phenylephrine, and finasteride. The most significant cause of hair loss in women is female-pattern hair loss. Your hairstyle, vitamin deficiency, hormone changes, dieting or rapid weight loss, restrictive diets, side effects from illness or medication, radiation treatment, stress, and over-processed hair can cause hair loss. Medical treatments like laser therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy are effective for genetic hair loss, hair loss due to chemotherapy, and age-related hair thinning.
Yes. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair loss treatments have dramatic results that last. You can see new hair growth in around 3-4 months. PRP therapy improves cell regrowth and tissue healing while promoting the body’s natural hair growth patterns.
While a hair transplant graft can fall out, it is very uncommon. If it happens, it will happen in the first day or two and may cause some bleeding. After ten days, a hair transplant graft is so permanently attached that aggressive or prolonged washing, scrubbing, and brushing will not dislodge it.
Hair transplant costs vary from state to state and provider to provider. The costs can vary by up to 400% across the country. In general, a hair transplant costs between $4,000-18,000. A single graft may cost $5 to $6 per graft, with most sessions requiring 2,500-3,000 grafts.
Hair loss treatment for men and women in Canada can range between $500-3,000 depending on the treatment method or treatment package, number of treatments, and medication prescribed.
The most common causes of hair loss in men are genetics, medical conditions and illnesses, stress or shock, infection, immune system disorders, and grooming habits.
A hair transplant is a long-term or lifelong cure for hair loss and baldness.
You can address hair loss and protect your hair and scalp by changing your diet, consuming more protein, taking a multivitamin, and consuming more vitamin A, vitamin D, or biotin. You should wash your hair regularly to keep your scalp clean and healthy and use a mild shampoo or co-wash. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, rosemary, and mint on your scalp to stimulate hair regrowth. Avoid using harsh chemical hair treatments, heat styling, and aggressive styling techniques. Use a hair claw or spiral hair tie to hold your hair back, and avoid tight hair elastics.
