Causes of Losing Beard Hair

The causes of hair loss in men’s beard is relatively unknown. In alopecia, the autoimmune attacks are directed at hair follicles, where they become damaged. While Alopecia Barbae is thought to be caused by genetics or hormonal influences, experts also believe that alopecia areata and alopecia barbae could be triggered by external factors such as stress or an injury.

  • Family Hereditary: The thickness of your beard is primarily determined by your genetics. If your father and grandparents have thick beards, you’ll likely be able to grow a thick beard as well.
  • Decreasing testosterone and DHT levels: Facial hair growth is initiated and regulated by androgenetic male hormones; while testosterone prepares the follicles for the growth phase, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) triggers elongation. Therefore, a decrease in these hormones can cause a significant thinning or loss of facial hair.
  • Poor diet: Deficiencies in vitamin and minerals such as biotin, vitamin D, zinc, vitamin A, magnesium, vitamins A, K2 and E and calcium can be held accountable for facial hair loss since they play an important role in the production of keratin and collagen.
  • Stress: Negative effects of chronic stress are associated with the increase in a hormone known as cortisol. By suppressing androgenic hormones, cortisol is considered as a possible cause of facial hair loss.

  • Alopecia barbae: Alopecia areata is the name of the autoimmune disease in which the inflammatory cells attack the body itself, especially the hair follicles. It is actually a common condition that affects a fair amount of people throughout their lives. When alopecia areata occurs on the facial hair, then it is named alopecia barbae, usually showing up suddenly in the form of small circular patches.

Are You A Good Candidate for Beard Transplant?

As in the case of scalp hair transplantations, the same surgical techniques are executed during beard restoration, such as FUE and DHI. Therefore, as long as you have healthy donor hair on your scalp which match the colour and texture of your facial hairs, you are likely to be considered a good candidate for beard transplantation in terms of surgical requirements.

The rest is up to the patient’s wishes and demands. If your facial hair is thinning, or you have a scar on your face you wish to cover, or you just want to have a thicker and fuller beard, then there is no need for you to postpone the operation which will change your life, both physically and mentally.

However, there are a small number of conditions regarded as drawbacks in terms of beard restoration. For instance, if you are currently in the process of chemotherapy or treatment for alopecia Universalis, it is recommended waiting a bit more before going through facial hair transplantation. Moreover, as it is necessary to have an adequate number of hairs on the scalp, patients whose bodily hair is completely lost are not considered eligible candidates for beard transplantation.

How Is It Applied: The Procedure of Beard Transplant

Firstly, your doctor will explain the necessary precautions to take before the operation. You will need to avoid medication such as aspirin and inflammatory agents as well as consuming alcohol at least three days before the surgery.

You will be given two options of hair transplant techniques: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Direct Hair Implementation (DHI). The first step to take is consulting with your doctor about which technique is most suitable for your needs as well as your non-surgical circumstances such as budget and time reserved for the operation.

In order to make the optimal choice, it is significantly important both getting familiar with the mentioned techniques and recognizing the distinction between the two.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

In Follicular Unit Extraction, each individual follicular unit is extracted from the donor area at one time, using small punch or forceps with a size of one-millimetre in diameter instrument. As soon as the follicular units are prepared, your surgeon will make small incisions at the recipient site by means of razor blades. Depending on the number of hairs within each follicle, the hair grafts will be strategically placed in each slit one by one.

Harvesting an adequate number of follicular units in accordance with the priorly designated beard line may take a couple of hours, and in terms of larger sessions, be separated into two days. The tissue damage resulted from the incision process usually starts to heal in about 3 to 4 weeks, leaving small scars, which are invisible to an untrained eye, buried under the hairs on the donor area.

Direct Hair Transplantation

Once the planning of the beard line is completed according to your needs and desires, your doctor will apply a local anaesthetic agent to the target area. As soon as the anaesthesia takes effect, the extraction process will be initiated, manually using an extractor device with a diameter of 1 mm or less.

The hair grafts extracted from the donor area will be immediately implanted into the recipient site, using an advanced tool named Choi Pen. It is a mechanical implementation device that can contain 1 to 4 hair follicles simultaneously. The placement of the hair follicles requires utmost attention, highlighting the skill and the experience of the surgeon. Tiny scars will be left where the hair follicles were removed, but these will not be noticeable as the existing hair will cover them appropriately.

Once the anaesthesia wears off, the patient may feel a tightness to replace the numbness, and there might be mild redness, irritation or discomfort for a short span of time. Painkillers or anti-inflammatory medication will be quite effective on these issues. You may experience a little bit of numbness both on your face and donor site once the anesthesia starts to wear off.

After two or three weeks, your newly transplanted facial hairs will begin to fall out as this period of hair loss is required for the growth of the permanent hair strands, so this shedding period should not be a reason for distress. They will grow after the hair regenerates itself with full volume and full power than ever before. However, bear in your mind that it will take at least four months to acquire the desired results, so it is important to have reasonable expectations and of course patience.
