There are a number of reasons men and women experience hair loss. Trauma, stress, genetics, pregnancy and other hormonal changes, protein deficiency, and hair products can all play a part in hair loss. By the age of 35, over 60% of men in the United States experience some hair loss, and by age 50 that percentage goes up to 85%. While most people think of hair loss as primarily a men’s issues, the fact is that it effects many women as well. Approximately 40% of women experience some hair loss by the age of 60.
There are a number of options available today when it comes to combatting hair loss. Each method of hair loss treatment specifically targets unique types of hair loss, so it’s important to get a clear understanding on what type of hair loss you have and what underlying causes there may be. Dr. Robbins has helped many men and women combat their hair loss through NeoGraft hair transplantation. This procedure gently removes individual micro hairs from the areas of the scalp with good hair growth. Next, each harvest graft is placed into the areas where there is hair loss. One graft typically equals 103 individual hair follicles. Approximately 2-3 weeks after the transplant, the transplanted hair will fall out, while the hair follicle bulbs remain under the skin. Then, in about 4-6 months, patients start to see substantial hair growth. Full results from he NeoGraft transplant are typically visible about 9 months to a year after the procedure.
