Beard loss can occur in humans due to genetic reasons, scars, burn marks or various diseases.
WHAT CAUSES BEARD LOSS?
There are many factors affecting the frequency and hair quality of the beard. However, hormonal causes are the leading ones. The lack of hormones to develop and intensify hair follicles is usually due to genetic structure. Testosterone, the male hormone, may also beard or beard if it is below normal. Lack of hair follicles or insufficient origin is due to genetic structure, but it is not a hormonal condition.
In addition, scars and burns that may occur due to various reasons may cause facial hair loss due to local damage to the hair follicles. The hair structure that develops and develops within 3-4 years after puberty continues to maintain its characteristic structure unless there is a significant hormonal change.
Diseases, such as skin diseases, can cause loss of beard and beard shedding.
Here, it is common to believe that the beard will harden as the razor is hit. In cases where the main factor is Di Hydro Testesterone (DHI) deficiency due to genetic structure, razor blade has not been proven to have any effect.
Who can plant beard and mustache?
Before deciding on beard transplantation, the cause of the beard loss should be determined. One must have survived puberty. However, it is recommended to wait until the age of 24 for the formation of the hormonal process. Some diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hepatitis B, and so on can also be decided after sowing. Beard transplantation can also be done in cases where hair follicles are insufficient or there is no beard.
HOW TO BE SOWED?
Beard transplantation is performed by FUE or FUT methods which are becoming less preferred day by day. It varies from person to person when the beard is to be planted due to regional shedding or infrequency. Although other facial hairs can be used as donors, grafts from the nape are usually transplanted.
Roots, neck, cheekbone and under the jaw are collected from unnecessary hairs and the densities are compacted in the required areas. These roots, which are taken from the areas that disrupt the aesthetic appearance due to the scattered beard, can be seen as a separate advantage as they will provide permanent hair removal.
In cases where the beard is not present, the planting of 1000 to 3000 roots can be sufficient to achieve the desired appearance in the plantings planned by the doctor.
Beard transplantation by FUE method is based on the principle of collecting as many hair follicles as needed from the donor region and placing the roots collected in the area where the roots will be transplanted at a natural angle.
No pain is felt during the sowing operation under local anesthesia.
Since the ducts in the skin are opened with a special channel called manual punch, called “micro punch 0 with medical instruments of 0.6 mm – 0.8 mm, no cuts are made on the skin and after planting the beards grow as one by one.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS AFTER BEARD TRANSPLANTATION?
Redness can be seen in these areas where the hair roots are present due to the clotting of the blood coming out of the small holes opened by the puncture points after the operation which can last 4 to 6 hours according to the number of roots to be planted. These slight rednesses, which lead to better nutrition of the hair follicles, usually disappear within 1 week.
During the operation performed under local anesthesia, breaks can be made and at the end of the operation, the patient does not need to be hospitalized and the patient can return to his / her daily life.
The hair follicles that have been planted within 2 weeks after the beard transplantation, which is similar to the procedure of hair transplantation, experience a shock loss. After this temporary shedding, the hair follicles grow completely within 4-8 months according to the genetic structure of the person.
