Hair loss is a common confident-killing problem that affects men and women alike. Statistics have shown that 80% of women start losing some of their hair by the age of 60, while 40% of men start losing their hair by the age of 35.
Hair replacement services refer to a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures and treatments designed to address hair loss and restore the appearance of the head, eyebrows, beard, and other areas from where you have lost hair.
Many patients wonder when the best time is to seek hair replacement services. Let’s talk about the best time to seek hair replacement services at Northwest Hair Restoration and the common hair replacement services offered.
When Should You Consider Hair Replacement Services?
Typically, the best time to seek hair replacement services varies depending on individual circumstances and personal preferences. The following are some common scenarios in which you should consider hair replacement or restoration services.
You Have Noticeable Hair Loss
Everyone loses approximately 50 to 150 individual hairs per day. Usually, these hairs grow back. However, if your hair follicles have thinned, hair regrowth will not occur. When the rate of hair loss exceeds the rate of hair growth, it can lead to visible signs such as a receding hairline, hair thinning, and other noticeable changes.
If you are noticing such visible signs of hair loss, it’s best to see a hair doctor to replace your lost hair.
You have Stable Hair Loss
Stable hair loss is a stage next to noticeable hair loss. Stable hair loss is when the progression of hair loss reaches a point where it remains relatively constant over a period of time without significant change.
At this stage,you may have already experienced a receding hairline, substantial hair thinning, or areas of baldness. This stage also means that the rate of hair loss does not increase dramatically or hair loss is not spreading to new areas.
Seeking hair replacement services at this stage can ensure that the treatment or procedure is more likely to be successful and provide long-term results.
Hair Loss is Affecting Your Self Esteem
Losing hair can take a significant toll on your emotional and mental health, affecting your self-esteem and confidence. It can also make you conscious about your appearance in front of others.
If you find that your hair loss is negatively affecting your overall well-being and mental health, it is the best time to seek hair replacement services to restore your confidence and improve your self-image.
