How to Get Better Summer Hair
Memorial Day is here and you know what that means . . . summer barbecues, family vacations, and open pools!
Wait, what? You’re not excited about the prospect of diving in the cool water on a hot summer day?
We understand. When you are self conscious about your thin hair or bald spot, it’s hard to get excited about getting it wet. Because when your hair gets wet it gets flat. And when it gets flat, it shows your scalp more in all those areas where it is extra thin, balding or receding.
But you don’t have to suffer anymore. There are solutions that can help restore your hair to it’s fuller days. By this time next year, you can start enjoying summer vacations and trips to the pool with no shame or embarrassment.
How to Get Better Summer Hair
There are many options available to create a thicker, fuller head of hair. It’s important to meet with a hair restoration expert to discuss which options are best for your particular situation.
Shaveless Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
With Shaveless Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), Dr. Danyo will individually remove each graft from random areas throughout your scalp. He then re-implants them artistically, creating a natural and pleasing appearance. This makes the thinner areas just denser and leaves the thicker areas with plenty of hair. There are no linear scars, sutures or staples which means a quicker recovery time and minimal pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood cells to reinvigorate the hair follicles. PRP has been shown to promote hair shaft thickness, which results in increased hair volume. The procedure takes an afternoon and there are no visible signs after the procedure is completed.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a procedure where thousands of medical-grade tattoo dots are placed just under the outer portion of the skin. This creates a more dense appearance, hiding the exposed scalp. For men who shave their head, this option can give that “five o’clock shadow” look. This is a great option for concealing scars or scalp defects.
Whichever procedure you ultimately choose, you can rest assured knowing that you are in great hands with the North Atlanta Hair Restoration team. Schedule your free consultation today and learn how you can have a more confident visit to the pool this summer!
