Do you know what beard transplantation is, how much it costs, and what you can do to improve the density of your beard?
Before we talk about Beard Transplant, let’s talk about its purpose, evolutionarily speaking. Children, women, and several men can get along just fine without one. But nowadays, if you take a walk down some streets you can see beards in all sizes and shapes. From artist to waxed mustaches and hipster beards.
In prehistoric times, scientists believe that men grew long beards for three main reasons. Firstly, because of the heat. Next, prehistoric men grew their beards to protect themselves. And lastly, thicker beards could grow so long that they helped to cushion blows to the face.
With human evolution, the beard stopped having a protective function against extreme natural aggressions. It has become part of our identity, so for many men, growing a beard can be a challenge.
There are a number of factors that influence the lack of facial hair: genetic predisposition, burns, skin trauma, or acne scars. And that is exactly where beard transplantation comes in.
What precisely is a beard transplant?
Much like hair transplantation, beard transplantation helps to address flaws and imperfections. The refinement of the technique makes a natural look possible and becomes as popular a procedure as hair transplantation. When performed by experienced doctors and nurses, the results are often excellent.
The technique is similar to hair transplantation, where strands are taken from specific regions. Such as under the chin or at the nape of the neck and are reimplanted in the desired area. Once the donation site is chosen, the doctor/nurse separates and shapes the strands, and then reinserts them with micro-incisions. The harvest is done strand by strand, without the need for cuts, that is, there is no scar in the area where the hair was removed. The hair removed from the desired area is transferred to the desired region and will grow like normal hair.
The time it takes for the new hair to grow and the number of procedures will depend on the number of visits to the doctor’s office, and also on the amount of hair already on the client’s face. The expected time for growth is between three and six months.
