Common Myths and Truths About Hair Loss and Balding
Feb 12, 2018 - 2:10:15 PM
“I’ve worked with enough people who have hair loss to know that it is often a big blow to their confidence level,” says Dr. John Kahen, founder of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration (BHHR). “Being able to navigate through the issue is the best way to be able to come out the other end with hair, as well as feel good about your appearance.”
In a 2016 issue of the journal CME Dermatology, researchers share an article that discusses alopecia (hair loss) in general medicine. They report that the psychological impact of hair loss is often overlooked, yet it causes significant psychological distress. They also report that many sufferers experience feelings of distorted self-image and low self-esteem, and they may also display symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Knowing the truths about hair loss can help give hope to the many people who are experiencing it and the psychological impact that accompanies it. Here are some common myths and truths about hair loss:
“Myths abound when it comes to hair loss and treating it,” added Dr. Kahen. “The best rule of thumb is for those with thinning and balding hair to get a consultation. Then they will have the answers of why they are losing their hair and what options there are to do something about it. I have helped thousands of people to restore their hair, along with their self-esteem.”
Dr. Kahen, who is a world-renowned hair restoration surgeon, is a pioneer and the leading expert in using the Platelet Rich Plasma technique, called SmartPRP®. His hair restoration technique uses the body’s own tissue regeneration mechanism to strengthen small hairs and stimulate growth of new follicles. Smart PRP, a 30-minute procedure, can be performed as a standalone treatment or, in some cases, is combined with transplant surgery, which takes all day. Since Smart PRP® is an injection therapy procedure, patients generally return to work the next day. Hair transplants take longer to heal - generally 10 days — as the redness, swelling and scabbing fade. Cost of treatment varies based on the treatment(s) plan.
Dr. Kahen has performed thousands of hair restoration surgeries and has become one of the most sought-after doctors in the world. He has performed surgeries on business executives, physicians, dignitaries, and celebrities, among others. He has invented some of the most advanced restoration technology, including SmartPRP®. Located only 30 minutes from the Los Angeles International Airport, BHHR also offers a fly-in program, helping those who may be coming in from other states or countries for the procedure.
