Patients commonly report self-confidence complications from their hair loss or hair thinning, and these symptoms can even lead some individuals to to withdraw from their normal way of life altogether. Even for individuals who are not suffering from such severe hair loss, or for whom the symptoms don’t cause such severe self-confidence doubts, the nagging self-doubt is often something that is still there, and a nuisance that we could inevitably do without.
For genetic hair loss in particular, opportunities are notably limited. Indeed, with genetic hair loss, no amount of creams or medications will cause the hair to regrow once it has gone – but hair transplantation techniques can provide a to permanently eliminate the hair loss conundrum.
Of course, once a patient has made the difficult decision to opt for hair transplantation, there comes the potentially overwhelming challenge of working out the best hair transplantation option. Of the different solutions, DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is arguably one of the most popular.
DHI is a widespread modern method for hair transplantation and can offer many benefits. It’s also one that crops up early in most searches.
How is the DHI Performed?
