Hair loss tends to have an emotional impact to anyone suffering from the condition, so a lot of people opt to look for treatment if they feel uncomfortable with the situation.
When you opt for medical hair restoration over non-surgical solutions, then hair transplantation is the solution for you. And when choosing a clinic, do not look for any other place than at Bosley.
What Does Bosley Claim Hair Restoration Will Do?
Bosley claims that they will be able to restore your hair to its original condition or to a more natural-looking condition through transporting follicles known to grow your whole life to the area where your hair is thinning.
This procedure is also permanent since the transplanted hairs are resistant to the hormone that causes hair loss. The procedure can be pretty extensive, with between 3,000 and 6,000 grafts taking place which depends on how bad your condition is.
How Does Bosley Hair Restoration Work?
1. Removing the donor tissue
The thinning areas (recipient areas) where you want the restoration to be done is identified so that a plan to achieve the most natural-looking hairline is made. The hair is prepared from the back of your head (donor area) by trimming the area while preserving the surrounding area. Local anesthesia is then applied to the donor area, and then the physician removes a strip of tissue from the donor area that contains your permanent, lifelong hair follicles.
2. Preparing the donor’s hair
The clinical staff prepares the donor hair for placement through trimming or dissecting the donor strips into the follicle groupings (units). Each unit has one to four hair follicles.
3. Placing the follicular units
When preparation is finished, the physician makes a tiny incision on the scalp for each follicular unit while paying close attention to the location as well as angle and depth of each unit. This is to ensure that you get a more natural looking result and also to maximize the density and coverage of the thinning areas.
4. After the procedure
You will then be given instructions on how to care for the donor and recipient areas as well as be given medication for sleep or any other discomfort you may have afterward. You will be required to return the next day for inspection and to have your hair washed. The numbness and swelling may go away after a week, and after about three to six months you will start noticing some significant growth.

What Alternatives Are There?
There are many non-surgical solutions to hair loss which include wigs (synthetic, real hair wigs), drugs, lotions, corticosteroid injections that use steroids, creams and ointments, immunotherapy, ultraviolet light treatment, tattooing, complementary therapy such as aromatherapy and acupuncture, cloning, scalp reduction, and lastly, the use of artificial hair.
If you have tried other non-surgical solutions to hair loss with no success and you have quite some money to spend, hair transplant is the closest thing you have to getting your life back on track in terms of hair loss. Bosley will help you have your hair grow back naturally and so will your self-esteem.
