Hair transplant technology and hair loss treatments are constantly evolving as new techniques and medications are discovered, but what about being able to use hair from another source as donor hair?
Losing your hair can be extremely devastating as you get older, but even people who don’t lose their hair can have a hard time with the effects of aging on their bodies. As we get older the pigment in our hair follicles begins to degrade and our hair will eventually turn gray. Even if it doesn’t fall out, or start to thin, graying hair is something that everyone will deal with and it can be extremely upsetting, or at the very least time consuming.
If you suffer from hair loss or hair thinning, then you know the everyday struggle of trying to figure out exactly what you can do to help prevent things from getting worse. Whether that’s trying out the latest over-the-counter shampoo, serum, or pills to visiting a doctor to get prescription medication, you’re always on the lookout for something that can help you keep that full head of hair that you so passionately desire.
Technological advancements are being made every day in the field of medicine, but the public oftentimes doesn’t hear about them due to the complexity of the scientific process or quite frankly, the sometimes inconsequential nature of the results. As you might expect, not everything gains the attention for splashy headline on the evening news. New treatments for life threatening illness like diabetes and cancer are always popular and render public interest but so does the promise of a cure for baldness.
The whole point of undergoing a hair transplant procedure is so that you can style your hair in all the ways you used to love. But should you avoid certain hairstyles after having surgery?
There’s good news and bad news for those that can’t wait to grow out longer, fuller hair and style it in any way you choose.
Hair transplant procedures have become extremely popular over the last decade and is estimated to grow by another 9.9 billion USD from 2021 to 2026. In 2022 alone, predictions are that the hair transplant market will grow upwards of 8% from where it was in 2021.
The growth within the hair transplant market just goes to show that as technology and procedures improve, more and more people are trusting doctors and surgeons to restore their hair in ways that weren’t possible before.
One of the most important things you can do when choosing a doctor is make sure that you feel that person has your best interests in mind.
Throughout our website we provide information regarding every aspect of the hair transplant process. From what to expect during your consultation and what questions to ask, all the way through the recovery process and how long until you see the results of your surgery. But we realize that it may not always be easy to find that information that you’re looking for, regardless of how well the content is organized.
Nothing’s easy about cancer or undergoing chemotherapy. However, as cancer-related research and technology advances, so do remedies developed to combat chemotherapy’s many side effects. One of these most dreaded side effects includes hair loss.
For both men and women, hair loss is one of the most challenging aspects of chemotherapy. Some people report having a harder time coping with hair loss than by losing a body part to cancer or even receiving the cancer diagnosis itself.
In Observation of Prostate Cancer Awareness Week: Cancer and Hair Loss from a Different Angle
About a year ago, we published an entry on the hair blog addressing the question, “Does Cancer Cause Hair Loss?” This week, in observation of National Prostate Health Month (September) and Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (Sept. 17-24), we’re revisiting the connection between cancer and hair loss. But instead of considering cancer as a cause of hair loss (which it usually isn’t), we’re investigating hair loss as a possible indicator of a specific type of cancer—prostate.
