Hair transplantation (AKA greffe de cheveux) is just one of the tools we use at Starks to help you get your confidence back when you find that you are losing your hair or when you’ve already lost it. You probably spent part of your journey looking up other peoples’ experiences online and you might have read some of the false or misleading ideas about FUE floating around. We’re here to reassure you that yes, hair transplants work, and some of the things you’ve heard just aren’t true. Here are the most common myths about FUE hair restoration.


The Results Don’t Last Long

The opposite is actually true! FUE hair transplants are permanent and will last over your entire lifetime. The process used by Starks was specifically created to be a lasting solution. By selecting donor follicles that are not to be lost to male pattern baldness, for example, we can ensure that the follicles implanted in the scalp have staying power. 


I Have to Treat My Transplanted Hair Differently

Transplanted hair is your hair. After the standard post-surgical period during which you always need to take more precautions after any medical procedure, the transplanted follicles are exactly like the rest of the hair on your body and can be styled, shampooed, conditioned, colored, and cut in any way you would like. It’s your hair, just placed in a different, more desired, area.


Hair Transplants Don’t Look Natural

That’s true for some other methods of transplantation. FUT, which involves removing large strips of the scalp, can leave scars and the results are often less than desirable. Hair plugs, though rarely done anymore, are similarly unnatural looking to most people. The method used by Starks, FUE, looks completely natural, as you can see by looking at photos from our patients. It’s a state-of-the-art procedure backed by the latest medical science and best practices for hair restoration.


Hair Transplants are for Young People

As many of Starks’s greffe de cheveux patients can tell you, the opposite is typically true. An older patient is more likely to have lost more hair than a younger one, which gives a larger “canvas” for the artistic reimplantation of hair follicles. Younger patients might not have lost all the hair they’re going to lose yet, which means the baldness might have to be mitigated with further procedures. This is perfectly natural and sometimes even expected, so don’t be alarmed if you still lose hair in places that your transplant didn’t cover. It works for people of any age.


As you can see, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet. You should always refer to experts such as the specialists at Starks, to help guide you on the path to reclaiming your confidence.
