    Hair loss can be quite confusing, there are many different types and causes of hair loss and trying to work out exactly what is wrong with your hair and how you can deal with it can be quite difficult. Something very common is thinning hair, and today, we’re looking at thinning hair and if a hair transplant is the way to combat it.

    Why is my hair thinning?

    As mentioned above, hair loss can happen for a number of different reasons and it is important to visit a hair loss specialist to find out the exact reason you might be suffering from hair loss. Due to the large number of different causes and factors involved in hair loss selecting the right treatment will be different for each individual.

    The first thing to remember is that hair loss is completely normal and its natural to lose between 60 to 100 hairs each day, this is all part of the hairs normal growth cycle. Hair loss to this extent is completely normal and you shouldn’t notice any visual difference to your hair. If, however, you feel your hair might be looking of feeling thinner your hair loss could be due to other factors such as stress, hormones, age or due to your genes.

    Some causes of hair loss are temporary and you won’t even need to consider looking at treatments, however, today, we’re looking at hair transplants for thinning hair and if it’s a suitable treatment.

    Is a hair transplant the answer to thinning hair?

    When it comes to hair loss you might notice your hair thinning in different areas, most commonly, around the hairline – over time this can form a receding hairline something that a lot of men will want to reverse.

    A hair transplant is the perfect treatment for thinning hair, if the thinning hair is permanent, the treatment works by transplanting hair from one area of the scalp to another to achieve the appearance of a fuller looking head of hair. The treatment can work to concentrate on areas of the scalp where the hair is thinning, such as the hairline. The result will leave any thin areas of the scalp looking fuller with natural and realistic coverage.

    What other treatments could help for thinning hair?

    A hair transplant isn’t the only treatment that would work for thinning hair, and for some, it isn’t the right treatment. Sometimes, if your hair loss is not severe, or if you are quite young you might be advised by our doctors not to get a hair transplant just yet. Future hair loss can be unpredictable and having a hair transplant too early will not be future proof and you could end up needing further treatment in the future.

    For some of our patients, advanced tricho pigmentation is the better option to treat thinning hair. The treatment works in a similar way to a tattoo by applying pigment to the dermal layer of the scalp. Our advanced technique and system works to build the appearance of hair to thinning areas of the scalp, this can work to add density, making the hair appear fuller.
