Donald Trump Displays the Importance of Natural-Looking Hair

Since announcing his candidacy for President of the United States more than a year ago, Donald Trump has been making headlines seemingly around the clock. Whether it’s ongoing debates about Trump’s policy proposals or pundits dissecting his bombastic comments, you can’t turn on a television or walk by a magazine rack without seeing the business mogul’s face. While the country remains largely divided over the political and social ramifications of the Donald Trump campaign, most people can generally agree on one thing: Something is definitely wrong with his hair.

Debate Over Donald Trump and His Hair

Without question, the media’s interest in Donald Trump’s hair predates his quest for the highest office in the land. Pop culture observers, comedians and late night hosts have been taking jabs at the businessman’s hair for decades, with many mocking the tell-tale signs of a badly managed comb-over. Still, others claim that Trump underwent flap surgery in the late 80’s or early 90’s, and it’s this procedure that accounts for his hair’s unnatural appearance. On the other hand, we could simply be looking at a case of hair plugs gone awry.

Surprisingly, even hair loss experts are torn over whether or not Donald Trump has had work done, so we may never know the truth. But the fact that the debate exists is proof that hair restoration procedures don’t always lead to quality results, which is why you need highly skilled specialists in your corner, like the experts at Advanced Hair Transplants.

Natural, High-Quality Hair Restoration

Led by Dr. Bruce Marko, the restoration specialists at Advanced Hair Transplants can use their decades’ worth of experience to give you the natural, high-quality results you’re looking for. The cornerstone of Advanced Hair Transplants’ services is the MAX DENSITY procedure, which offers highly effective yet cost-efficient restoration with only a minimal amount of discomfort to the patient.

During the MAX DENSITY procedure, grafts are removed from donor areas on the patient and then dissected under microscopic magnification before being transplanted to the recipient sites. As the name implies, the goal of Dr. Marko’s proprietary procedure is to ensure the patient receives the maximum amount of hair density following transplantation. Additionally, the MAX DENSITY procedure requires less anesthesia and causes less post-operative swelling compared to other restoration techniques. Also, patients find that they heal faster, and they aren’t left with noticeable scarring, making the procedure virtually undetectable.

Regardless of your personal politics, Donald Trump’s hairstyle probably isn’t something you want to imitate. So if you’re in need of hair restoration, contact the experts at Advanced Hair Transplants via phone at (888) 923-7497 or via email at lee@advancedhairtransplants.com. They can give you picture perfect, natural-looking results that won’t leave people asking what’s wrong with your hair.

Laser Hair Therapy Cures Hair Loss?

Typically, we think of lasers as a way to get rid of unwanted hair. High-intensity light damages the follicles, ceasing hair production. But, as it turns out, lasers can also have the opposite effect. Studies have shown that low-level laser hair therapy can actually stimulate follicles and accelerate hair growth. So how exactly can lasers be used to regrow hair and is it a viable cure for baldness?

How Low-Level Laser Hair Therapy Works

Although it seems like your hair is constantly growing, the hair growth cycle actually consists of three distinct phases: growth, resting, and shedding. Most hair loss occurs after the shedding phase when follicles fail to reproduce hairs. Due to possible catalysts, such as dihydrotestosterone (a testosterone derivative known as DHT) or alopecia, follicles will sometimes enter the resting phase and shut down entirely, resulting in widespread thinning and baldness.

Fortunately, low-level laser hair therapy can work to correct this problem. The photons within the laser infuse the follicles with energy, reanimating them from their dormant state. Once the follicles are working properly again, they go back to producing new hairs, effectively reversing the hair loss.

Low-level laser hair therapy can be an effective way to treat a number of different types of hair loss. So far, there is evidence to suggest that the procedure can work for androgenic alopecia, a common type of hair loss that affects more than 70% of men and 40% of women. Additionally, low-level laser hair therapy is also effective against alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that results in the immune system mistakenly attacking hair follicles.

How Does Low-Level Laser Hair Therapy Stack Up to the Competition?

Currently, two of the most popular treatments for hair loss are over-the-counter staples Rogaine and Propecia. While these options have been proven to be effective for some patients, they do have their drawbacks. These medications only result in a limited amount of regrowth. Also, they need to be taken habitually in order to be effective. In the case of Rogaine, the positive effects can sometimes stop entirely without warning. Alternatively, hair transplantation tends to be a more successful form of restoration, but it can be time-consuming and expensive.

If you’re looking for a different way to regrow your hair, consider giving low-level laser hair therapy a try. Feel free to contact Advanced Hair Transplants via phone at (888) 923-7497 or via email at lee@advancedhairtransplants.com.
