I'm Embarrassed About My Thinning Hair

I'm Embarrassed About My Thinning Hair

Everyone loses about 50-100 hairs every day. This is a natural part of the hair growth cycle. But, if you’re losing considerably more than that and notice serious thinning, bald spots, or male-pattern baldness, you have every right to be concerned. 

Even if baldness runs in your family, it can still be a blow when your lush head of hair starts to disappear. There’s no need to be embarrassed, however. At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, in Leesburg/Ashburn, Virginia, we offer some of the latest technology for natural-looking hair transplantation.

Here’s what you need to know about our hair transplantation procedure and why it’s the superior way to restore your hair and confidence.

Why am I losing hair?

Hair loss happens to men and women. Baldness and thinning hair can run in families. Sometimes it’s a natural result of aging; your hair follicles slow down their production. 

Alopecia is an autoimmune system in which the immune system attacks your hair follicles, sometimes causing hair to fall out in large clumps. 

Certain hormone conditions, hairstyles, and medications can also lead to thinning hair.

How can you help?

Lansdowne Aesthetic Center offers some of the best hair transplant technology available. FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is superior to the hair plug transplants of the past that looked unnatural. 

The FUE procedure takes individual hair follicles from areas of good hair volume and places them in areas where your hair is thinning. Here at Lansdowne, we use small groupings of follicles and artfully place them in the area that needs filling in. 

The transplanted follicles are nourished by blood vessels and begin growing hair in the area that was thinning. 

Am I a candidate for a hair transplant?

To get the best benefit from the FUE procedure, you should still have enough hair near the balding area to use for the transplant. Our experienced staff can determine if you have enough healthy or thick hair to fill in the thinning or balding area.

Will the FUE procedure help boost my confidence?

The FUE procedure is the closest any hair transplant procedure comes to being minimally invasive. It leaves almost no scarring, boasts a short recovery time, and causes little discomfort. You can return to most normal activities the next day.

Men and women get a promising restoration of their hair without the linear scar that runs across the back of the skull associated with other hair transplant methods. 

The quality of your transplanted hair is just like that of your natural hair. No one will be able to tell you’ve had a “procedure” to boost your hair’s appearance. 

We’re also able to cover most of your balding or thinning areas. Your FUE grafts should grow hair for a lifetime, if you take good care of your hair and scalp. 

Choose an experienced surgeon like Yaqub Baraki, M.D., to perform your FUE procedure. He understands how hair grows and ensures you get a restored head of hair that you can’t wait to show off.
