Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper… Most guys love the manly appeal that comes with the beard. But not all are gifted, as these Hollywood stars are, with the genes to have a fully grown facial hair. In fact, some can’t quite grow even an inch of beard on their faces.
Blame it on genes, guys, because biology tells us that only those with bodies that are highly sensitive to testosterone can grow that appealing facial hair. Otherwise, you belong to 45% of men around the globe who cannot sport a beard or facial hair.
Are you in the lower 45% of men without this gift? What have you done to achieve a masculine Hugh Jackman look? Did you follow your friend’s tip to shave your facial hair over and over until they grow thicker? Have you bought those beard thickening oils, vitamins, and supplements with the hope of waking up one day with a fully grown beard?
Our advice is to leave your fate to science. This is the way to go if you want a guaranteed normal-looking beard without having to wait forever. A lot of men are starting to discover the hair transplant option and that’s what we’ll talk about today.
Here are the questions that will first come to mind and we’ll give you the right answers straight from Philippine hair transplant experts!
How is it done?
Facial hair transplant is a procedure that involves the removal of hair follicles from any part of your body with a texture that is identical to the skin where the hair will be transplanted. For our surgeons, the back of the head is the best ‘donor’ area.
There is an advanced transplant procedure called the Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) or the Follicular Unit Extraction technique which is a safer hair transplant procedure. It is done with the use of a specialized machine with small punches that individually harvest the follicular grafts from the back of the head or the donor site. After harvesting the grafts, the machine will transplant them to the area where you want to grow your beard.
But before you even consider this procedure, find out first if you are qualified to get a hair transplant.
How painful is it?
You might think that punching and transplanting follicular grafts from the skin is excruciatingly painful. But the good news is the whole procedure is done under local anaesthesia, making it completely painless. Experienced surgeons keep the incisions at a minimum to avoid pain in the process. It actually feels more like several pinches on the skin rather than cuts and needles.
Does it take long?
Not really. The surgery can be done in a few hours on the same day, except if you want to gradually transplant more follicular grafts. If you choose the latter, the procedure can be done in several weeks with resting time in between.
Does the transplanted beard look too obvious?
Nope. It doesn’t leave any scar at all! Surgeons implant hair by following the direction of how facial hair grows normally so that the beard will look and feel natural.
Is it a permanent solution?
Definitely! In fact, there is no other option that is more effective and natural than hair transplantation. This is the scientific method that is considered worldwide to be the most successful procedure in patching your facial hair with a natural look.
So if you think your no-beard case is hopeless, consider the facial hair transplant option to get that masculine appeal!
