Hair loss is very common for men and women in Tampa, FL, but there are also a lot of myths that make it a confusing problem. American men spend billions of dollars annually on products that simply do not work to prevent and reverse hair loss.  This is because there is a lot of confusion out there about what exactly causes hair loss and how to reverse it. While there are surgical interventions such as a hair transplant to restore your hair, nothing in the pharmacy section of your supermarket is going to do anything except drain your wallet.  So, why do men dish out so much money on products that show no results?  Many desperate people want their hair back but do not know the truth about hair loss.

Many Myths Exist About What Causes Hair Loss

hair loss tampaUnderstanding what causes hair loss is important if you want to approach it correctly. One of the most common myths is that hair loss is age related; while hair loss does increase as we age, it is not the aging process itself that causes hair to thin. Some younger men experience early hair loss in their 20s, and but most men begin to bald in their 30s.  Once triggered, the hair loss will continue to worsen with time. The rumor that age causes hair loss is promoted by companies that manufacture products which are marketed to aging men, similar in the way that anti-wrinkle creams are marketed to aging women.  But it is hormones that cause hair loss and anti-aging treatments are of no benefit.

Another common misconception is that wearing hats or helmets will cause hair to fall out. This notion has triggered the production of products promising to stimulate those “hat dulled” follicles. Finally, another one of the most common myths is that hair loss is a result of styling products. Again, this rumor only benefits those selling topical creams and supplements.  The people who believe that common OTC products can cause hair loss, will then easily think that drug store products can correct the damage. “Rumors about hair loss are carried on by those who want to make money from ineffective products. The only real way to correct hair loss is through hair transplant surgery.” says Dr. Michael Jasin, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa.

How to Treat Hair Loss

While preventing hair loss and trying to regrow hair out of damaged follicles is not possible, a hair transplant can replace the bald spots by grafting new healthy hair follicles. There are a number of different types of hair transplant procedures to restore your hair but not all are equal. If you have healthy hair follicles, such as those along the back and sides of your head, choosing the Jasin Hair Transplant with NeoGraft technology is the easiest and most seamless way to restore hair in balding areas. The Jasin Hair Transplant Institute utilizes this revolutionary technology to harvest healthy hair follicles without a scalpel.  This means that there are no incisions, stitches or staples… and therefore, no lasting scars.  The healthy follicles are transplanted by hand to match the growth of the existing hair.  This will give the most natural results.
