Reasons NOT to get Hair Restoration
Hair restoration comes in many forms and has the potential to deliver many benefits beyond new hair growth. However, under certain circumstances, it isn’t the right move to make. The following are a few examples of when hair restoration is not the solution:
- You have an
untreated medical condition
that is causing your hair fall. If you transplant hair when you have certain active conditions, The new transplants may wither, or fall out all together. Not only is a waste of your time and money, but there is a recovery process to hair surgery that can possibly interrupt your healing process. It is best to wait until your condition either goes into remission, or has been cleared.
- You think that if only you had a full head of hair,
all of your problems would disappear.
It is true that many people experience a boost in self-confidence that sends positive ripples through their lives. That doesn’t mean that your new hair will fix your life. If you have serious issues and you think that your procedure will make it all better, you may experience a profound let down afterwards that will make matters worse. If you are feeling down about your looks, this may be your solution. If you are feeling down, in general, you may want to seek the help of a mental health professional.
- You are not ready to
commit to taking care of yourself
before, during, and after your procedure. The hair restoration process begins well before your procedure and extends through the recovery process. There are steps you must take along the way that will promote the best results. These reasonable precautions protect you and your investment. Prepare yourself mentally for these adjustments.
