The loss of hair over time is natural, but it is not inevitable. When you first notice the signs of hair loss on your scalp, you may think of a parent (or parents) with little or no hair or of other relatives who are balding or bald. This may lead you to think that it “runs in the family” and there is nothing to be done about it, except perhaps wear a wig which can often cause more problems than it solves. Hair loss is a benign physical condition that does not affect a person’s overall health, at least in physical terms.
The psychological aspects of hair loss are often more severe and because the condition is taken as being inevitable, the effect it has on quality of life is ignored or suppressed. Hair loss can possibly lead to a lowering of self-respect which could in turn diminish quality of life.
Hair Loss – What It Can Mean
Hair loss can affect a person’s sense of self and identity. The psychological implications develop slowly and their impact is therefore not immediately visible. In fact, the onset is often so slow that the anxiety, depression, social phobias and the negative impact on personal relationships often remain unnoticed. That does not mean that the negative impact does not affect quality of life.
The embarrassment, lowered self-esteem, reluctance to participate in social events, etc. can lead to reduced leisure and social activities which will increase feelings of isolation and depression. The result of this is that the pleasures of life and the social interactions that are key factors in psychological strength and wellbeing are cut off.
Hair loss is not inevitable. It can be reversed. Science has developed several ways to regenerate hair, and hair transplantation is the most widely used and successful method. Although it is a specialized procedure that must be done only in a clinic with qualified and experienced experts, the procedure is safe, comfortable and convenient with only a minimal recovery period. The results, in terms of countering hair loss or baldness, are remarkable. When you see yourself with the hair that you thought was part of your past, you will find yourself filled with new energy.
A recent study conducted by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in the U.S. found that the quality and appreciation of life in men with even moderate hair loss was significantly reduced. It is important to keep in mind that hair loss is not limited only to men, one in three women suffer from this condition at some point in their lives.
To know more about how a hair transplant can turn your life around, contact a hair transplantation clinic with an impeccable reputation and a proven track record of success. This is where you can have all your questions answered and once you make an informed decision, have the procedure done quickly, safely and conveniently.
The sooner hair loss is treated, the quicker the return to the equilibrium that adds value to life.
