Since we’re celebrating the season of giving, receiving, and being merry, we’d like to ask all the men out there. Have you ever considered giving yourself a one-time gift that will solve your hair loss problem forever?
In our world where everyone likes the idea of a quick fix, do you also resort to bandaid solutions when it comes to something so valuable like your hair?
It may be true that the recession of hairline naturally comes with age, but what if there is a one-time procedure that will make your hair look young for the rest of your life? This is what we know all over the world as the hair transplant procedure.
Although the thought of doing this hasn’t crossed your mind yet, we’re going to enlighten you through this post. One of the things we will discuss is the cost of hair transplant in the Philippines. This might get you thinking about either doing this for yourself or giving your old man a treat by letting him undergo a hair transplant procedure.
But before we delve into the details, let’s look into the other hair loss solutions that Filipinos and Asians resort to aside from a hair transplant. These solutions may be cheaper but their effects come off so easily.
Other hair loss solutions
Anti-hair fall products
Some products that you’ll see in the Asian market address the issue of hair fall. At best, they are considered preventive because they address the possible cause of hair loss before it worsens.
Topical Solution for Hair Loss and Hair Regrowth
Some people believe topical solutions to be better alternatives than regular hair fall products. These solutions, as the term implies, are applied to the scalp in order to stimulate hair follicles for regrowth and thicker strands. Most of these solutions contain minoxidil that addresses thinning hair in men and women.
Patients with alopecia also use these products to treat their condition. The manufacturers of hair loss and hair regrowth topical solutions claim that their products increase the blood flow to the dermis where the hair follicles are located, thus stimulating hair growth or thickening of the hair.
Scalp enhancing products
Just like the first two hair loss solutions, a scalp enhancing product addresses the health of the scalp in order to stimulate hair growth. Some of this formula includes zinc pyrithione as the key ingredient, which removes the build-up of dead skin cells on the scalp. Dead skin cells prevent hair growth.
The main job of hair regrowth supplement is to keep healthy all the systems in your body that are connected to your hair follicles. These supplements usually include apple extract, biotin, vitamin C and AminoMar that are all effective in promoting hair growth from within.
The price of these products ranges from as low as Php 500 to Php 4,000. There is definitely nothing wrong with all these products, but what’s common among them is that you have to wait for some time before you can see the results if any. There’s also a risk that one supplement or one topical solution is not as effective to you as it is to someone you know.
Different hair transplant procedures
In stark contrast to these solutions, a hair transplant procedure provides immediate results that will permanently grow your hair. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure, it provides natural results. Let’s discover more about this permanent solution that we’re talking about.
Hair transplant in general
It’s the method that is widely considered to be the most effective solution for the restoration of your hair back to its normal state. Through this procedure, a hair transplant surgeon moves healthy hair follicles from an area of the scalp into the part with thinning or balding hair. In the Philippines, the price of hair transplant varies anywhere between Php 150,000 to Php 200,000. A hair loss treatment Philippines is that permanent hair loss solution that involves highly advanced hair transplantation methods which don’t require constant application of products. It’s a one-time solution that solves your hair loss problem at once.
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction
The Follicular Unit Extraction is one type of hair transplant procedure. This new and safe hair transplant technique is done under local anaesthesia. In this procedure, the surgeon uses a machine with small punches is to individually harvest the follicular grafts directly from the donor site. These grafts will then be transplanted into the tiny slits in the thinning or balding area. Usually, the cost of an FUE procedure depends on the number of grafts to be transplanted.
Strip Method or Follicular Unit Transplant
The Follicular Unit Transplant, on the other hand, is a microsurgical technique in which natural follicular units are densely packed as grafts into the area where hairline recedes or thinning and baldness happens. This creates a natural front hairline and by trimming off the upper edge of the incision and then closing the donor area in such a way that the hair near the edge can grow through the scar.
In NuHart Philippines, this is called the trichophytic closure which has the potential to produce a scar that is virtually undetectable.
Believe it or not, you can also have manly facial hair through hair transplant. If you’re having a hard time growing a fuller and natural-looking beard or a manly hair on the chest, NuHart Philippines has a pool of hair doctors who perform hair implant procedure including a beard transplant.
There’s a so-called corrective procedure which is more of revision work. This can be taken advantage of by those who do not like the “patched” or “doll’s hair” look resulting from their initial hair restoration. You can repair that undesirable look by undergoing a corrective procedure.
Lastly, there is also a hair tattoo procedure which is usually done in the eyebrow area. You can also have a hair tattoo on certain parts of your scalp to give the illusion of thicker and fuller hair. Some would go for a hair tattoo on a bald head to create a close buzz cut hairstyle.
