Latest Trends in Hair Transplants Go Beyond the Scalp

Hair restoration procedures are used to improve and correct issues with thinning or balding hair in patients. The various techniques to correct this issue vary vastly. Today, new procedures include the use of robotic technologies and even a type of tattooing on the scalp, also known as scalp micropigmentation.


One recent report featured in Dubai Chronicle details the increasing popularity of FIXPLANT Keratin Hair Fiber as a popular hair restoration product used to mask problem areas. The concealer-type product is applied to the problem areas and lays down a layer of fibers made from the same organic proteins and natural hair.


But aside from innovative new products like these that people are turning to as a solution to their hair loss problems, there is also another interest trend popping up related to hair transplants, but they do not involve replacing hair on the scalp. This latest rise in demand is being seen in the request for facial hair transplants.


Arocha Hair Restoration in Houston has noted that as the world pays more and more attention to the popularity of facial hair to make a “modern” look for a man who is in style, the requests from patients looking to have facial hair transplants to add stubble on the face, is increasing.


Dr. Bernard Arocha said the facial hair transplants work just like the hair transplant techniques used on the scalp where hair follicles are harvested and inserted back into the areas unable to sufficiently grow hair.


"As tastes have changed and facial hair has become more accepted and embraced, we're seeing more patients who believe a thick mustache or stubble makes them look more masculine, mature and dignified. Ultimately, they are looking for a boost in confidence," said Dr. Arocha.


One study recently published in the journal, Evolution & Human Behavior,  uncovered that most women today viewed a man sporting a 10-day heavy beard as more attractive than clean shaven or light stubble.  According to the research, the ability to grow facial hair pointed at how people view a man’s maturity, masculinity and virility.
