What are the causes of grey and premature grey hair in both men and women?

Hair loss is a common hair condition that can only be treated with surgical treatment like hair transplant. However, these days people complain about grey hair or premature grey hair. Hair changing towards grey is clearly a chronic concern and is correlated with getting older. Especially when it happens prematurely, even at 30 years of age often. Well, not everyone experiences grey hair, but the majority of people experience grey hair in old age.

What are the causes of grey hair?

On each individual hair follicle, melanocyte cells can be found. They produce the natural hair coloration called melanin. In blondes less and in black hair more. The hair’s natural shade depends on the proportion of pigment adapters.

Yellow pigments, blond hair-: brown, even dark hair. You may appreciate the beauty of hair because melanin is developed in the hair follicle. Sadly, melanocytes mature over time and are intricately associated with the greying cycle.

Melanocyte coloration is no longer as extreme, their output is irregular, and hence only single grey hair emerges at the beginning. They are free of melanin and take on the keratin fiber color. This time is defined genetically.

Oxidative stress during hair aging

It turns out that oxidative stress is important for your hair. Hair turns gray because hydrogen peroxide in hair follicles is more and more produced over time. Hydrogen peroxide accumulation in hair follicles interferes with melanin synthesis. It inhibits directly, directly.

A decreased activity of the enzyme breaking down, catalase is causing the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide. In addition, the levels of MSR A and MSR B hair-capacitating enzymes in hair follicles decrease. The development of tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the creation of hair dye melanin in follicles are affected with high levels of hydrogen peroxide, together with low levels of MSR A and MSR B.

What makes premature grey hair?

The first grey hair typically occurs about 35-40 physiologically. However, the issue of premature greying between the ages of 25 and 35 is impacting more and more people. Most of the causes for premature grey hair are listed below as they can be quite complex.

How FUE hair transplantation treatment is helpful to repair the scars?

Hair transplant uses the follicular units which do not leave any scarring in the recipient area. But, when older methods are used with the oldest technology then it can leave possible scarring. The problem also arises when you do not select the best surgeon.

This is the reason, many people come to us to repair & disguise the scars. Many patients visit as they have linear scarring due to the FUT method. In such cases, the FUE (Follicular Hair Transplantation) hair transplantation technology is very effective in repairing the scars.

Does the procedure only repair the scars from hair restoration?

Well, many patients have scarring because they met with an accident in the past. The method of SmartGraft or Graft is very helpful in treating the problem with FUE technology. To choose the best method between the two there are various factors that need to be kept in mind so that the scars can be fixed. Let’s understand the given options in detail:

  • PRP therapy along with FUE method

When the scar is very thin, the new hair follicles cannot be added. To solve such an issue of scars it is very difficult to harvest the new hair grafts because the area is damaged in excess. The doctor will make sure to check the scars properly so that your treatment plan is made accordingly.

The idea to check if the issue of scarring will be fixed is with the blood supply. When the blood supply is proper then the transplanted grafts are going to grow properly. The effectiveness of this procedure is very high which means that successful results are possible.

  • Graft along with FUE method

To determine this method can be used for fixing the scars is by determining the scar thickness. Along with that, the scar size is going to play an important role in determining the success rate. The success rate is affected by the larger scar as the process of the newly transplanted hair will get affected.

What is the most effective method?

One of the approaches is to stimulate and promote hair growth so that the scar tissue is removed with the same punch being used with Graft when the hair grafts were removed from the back of the scalp. When the scar tissue is removed, it helps the area to shrink so that it can heal.

Consult the best Surgeon

These are the most effective methods for fixing the issue of scars. No doubt, both the options give the reliable results you want. If you are going through the same situation or know someone who had a bad outcome with the improper treatment then you should recommend them to opt for these options.

Once the grafting process is done then surgeon covers the treated area with bandages. A hair transplant is a sensitive procedure and should be performed by a professional and experienced surgeon.
