People usually associate hair loss with aging men, but did you know that it can hit both men and women, despite their age? Apart from being a social disruption, hair loss can also lead to low self-esteem. There are millions of men and women who are affected by hair loss, and every year more people are added to the list.
How does hair loss or baldness lead to social disruption? It all goes back to first impressions. The first time you see or meet a person, you are making calculated analysis inside your head, and as judgmental as it may sound, people make judgments depending on what they see. So, if you know someone you don’t like a physical level, then you have to the tendency to misjudge them.
So, what does that have anything to do with social disruption? Now, that it is clear how impressions work, and then it’s time to put things into perspective. Imagine that you were a guy with baldness problems walking into an office building, applying for the job.
Imagine that 100 people were applying. The interviewer is pretty busy, so he has to choose five whom he is going to interview. You can bet that he won’t be looking at school records to see who had the best grades so he can decide on the top 5 interviewees. Rather, he is going to look at your faces and determine which one could fit the job that you are interviewing for.
Believe it or not, interviewers take on a few courses on psychology so that they can tell if someone is a good fit or not. But that psychology thing doesn’t exactly help much until they talk to you, and in your case, your shot is the interview. Since none of you are being interviewed yet, then your best chance at this time is your personality. If you have hair problems or something like that, there is already a wedge between you and the interviewer, because as long as the interviewer sees something wrong, then he is bound to go for someone else, and your hope of getting interviewed fades away.
Hair loss or baldness can disrupt social life in so many ways. So, people are always making efforts to find a solution to this problem.
Experts have been taking great strides over the past 30 years to develop a permanent solution for hair loss. One of the most successful developments ever created for hair loss is hair transplant surgeries.
What Is Hair Transplant Surgery?
Hair transplant surgery is the procedure which involves taking some hair-bearing skin from one section of the scalp called the “donor site,” and then transferring it to the “recipient site,” which is the part of the scalp that is balding or experiencing extreme hair loss. Scary as it may seem, doctors use anesthesia, so that you won’t have to feel a thing during the entire operation. It’s going to feel as if nothing ever happened as if you were just resting in bed, and then when you wake up, your hair loss problems are gone.
As much as hair plant surgeries were able to give people a certain degree of satisfaction, it didn’t cure hair loss permanently. What it merely does is to cover up a bald scalp. When your scalp goes bald again, then you’ll need to go for another surgery.
A ton of experts have built bridges trying to come up with a formula that can permanently deal with badness or extreme hair loss, but they were unsuccessful. So, people resort to hair transplant surgery since it offers more visible results compared to other hair treatments.
With hair transplant surgery, you’ll become more confident and more self-fulfilled, without having to feel a thing during the entire process. It’s completely painless.
So, who are good candidates to undergo hair transplant surgery?
As long as you’re in good health and has a stable amount of blood in the body, then you are well qualified to take on a hair transplant surgery.
If you’re someone who is over 30 years old, then you’re in an even better position to take on hair transplant surgery since your hair loss pattern is more established than younger people.
So, who else?
- Women with hair thinning problems
- Men with male pattern baldness, commonly known as androgenetic alopecia
- Anyone who is suffering from hair loss after undergoing some surgical procedure
Exciting as it may seem to undergo this kind of surgery and say goodbye to your baldness, even for a short period, there is still some stuff that you need to consider. These are:
- Your expectations – make sure that you’re not expecting to get rid of your baldness for all eternity because hair transplant surgery can’t-do that. It can only cover up some section of the bald scalp for a period.
- Cost – there is no doubt that hair transplant surgery is going to cost you a lot of money. You’ll be better of knowing how much the whole thing is going to cost before jumping into the big decision.
- Medical History – evidently, the doctor who will be assigned to you will require you to disclose your entire medical history. Of course, they are doing it to make sure that the whole operation goes smoothly and safely.
Is Hair Plant Surgery Worth Every Penny?
No, it’s not, at least not when you now have Smart Hair Transplants. Hair loss research projects have shifted their cause to find a permanent cure for hair loss and baldness. They now have through Smart Hair Transplants.
This involves cellular harvesting, multiplication, and growth of new follicles into desired areas. Smart Hair Transplants is so much different from the traditional hair transplant surgeries that only aids to cover up a bald scalp. With Smart Hair Transplant, you’ll not only have a scalp fully covered, but you can also expect that the hair will also grow so you won’t have to take any more hair transplants.
TissUse is the one responsible for developing Smart Hair Transplants. What their process does is that it isolates cells from the root of the hair follicle called dermal papilla, making it possible to culture and expand cells to form neopapillae.
What Is Neopapillae?
Neopapillae refers to the hair follicle’s precursors, proven to grow hair follicles under the Vitro’s controlled conditions. This technique is so much more efficient compared to traditional hair transplant since it only requires thirty punch biopsies while generating 10,000 neopapillae, good for three hundred-fold more transplants.
Each neopapillae can grow a new hair follicle. This new method of hair restoration only requires a few exceptional biopsies and generates a ton of hair-producing transplants. The best part is that it is much less invasive compared to traditional hair transplant standards.
How does neopapillae do that?
Hair loss can also be attributed to slow hair growth. Dormant hair follicles cause this. One of the ways by which neopapillae can induce hair growth is by rejuvenating the dormant hair follicles.
When Will The Market Be Open to Smart Hair Transplants?
TissUse is already working on the physical proof in the clinical trials. In the time being, TissUse is looking for sponsor or funding opportunities from anyone who is willing to invest in Smart Hair Transplants, to begin with, the clinical trials. Once that’s gotten out of the way, then TissUse can start putting Smart Hair Transplants commercial and clinical use.
Once Smart Hair Transplants is ready for the market, their first target would be Europe. Europe has the strictest ATMP regulation in the world, so why they want to start from that point? Once they get Europe to sign with them, then they’ll find it much easier to spread their product all over the world.
What’s In Store for the Future of the Hair Restoration World?
Right now, it’s clear that even TissUse doesn’t know when their hair restoration product will come out. There is still a lot of testing that needs to be done. They said that the first clinical tests would be implemented for three years, but that is only the initial phase. TissUse never mentioned the number of tests that they need to perform before releasing the product out into the open.
The future of hair transplants appears to be pretty bright, but as for you, what are you going to do? Are going to settle for traditional hair transplants while there is still no news about smart hair transplants? If that’s what you’re planning to do, just remember that even TissUse has no clue if their procedure is going to work for someone who has already gone a traditional hair transplant procedure before undergoing theirs. TissUse thinks that the process is going actually to fail just because of a previous procedure, but they won’t be making second thoughts. They want to be sure before they release any information to the public. All of it will be well-researched at the clinical trials.
