What Are the Causes of Hair Loss?
One of the most common reasons for hair loss is the lowering of the levels of a certain hormone known as dihydro testosterone, or DHT. When the follicles miniaturize due to the DHT hormone, this leads to the growth of thin softer hairs, which eventually disappear. This pattern baldness can affect the top part of the scalp and not the back and sides.

Other causes of hair loss include treatments like radiation therapy, medications, stressors, heredity, health conditions, and physical stress on the hairs due to certain hairstyles.

What Is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is the process of permanently moving a patient’s hair follicles to another part of their scalp. These follicles are usually taken from the back of the head and placed on the thinning or balding areas to address hair loss. The follicles gradually grow new hairs as part of the natural growth cycle.
Does Transplanted Hair Grow Thick?
The growth rate and thickness of the hair transplant depend on the donor area. It can take 3 months to start seeing any growth, and it takes a full year for the hair to mature. Once matured, it will have the same characteristics as the donor-area hair.
Will I Be Sedated During the Hair Transplant Procedure?
During your hair transplant procedure, you have the option to stay awake while watching movies or listening to music. You may also take a nap while they perform the transplantation process. General anesthesia is not typically required, which allows patients to avoid the side effects that sometimes come about due to general anesthesia.
Will There Be Pain During My Hair Transplant Session?
A local anesthetic will be administered at the start of the procedure to numb the areas to any pain. Most patients barely feel anything and are able to go back to work after a very short recovery period of 1 to 2 days.
How Much Time Does It Take to Complete the Hair Transplant Procedure?
The time it takes to finish the hair transplant procedure varies based on the extent of the area that is affected by hair loss. It will depend on the number of hair follicles being relocated to the target area. Most procedures are done in a single session, but if needed, Dr. Ronan will ask you to come back the next day.
Does a Hair Transplant Last?
A hair transplant offers long-lasting results. Once transplanted, follicles will permanently produce hair on the target area. The transplanted hairs will grow without requiring any special care.
What Is the Cost of a Hair Transplant Procedure?
The total cost of hair transplantation in Danville varies from patient to patient depending on the details of their procedure. The type of procedure or treatment chosen affects the overall price. Additionally, cost may be affected by factors such as the number of follicles being transplanted, the number of sessions required, and anesthesia fees.
