Facial Hair Loss

Every year in November, people all over the world hold events and raise awareness for men’s health, such as suicide and cancer. This event is called Movember and the idea is that it should be a non-shave month in which people grow out their facial hair in order to draw attention to themselves, thus raising attention to men’s health issues. Having come to the end of November, it is fitting to mention that hair loss does not just mean the hair on your head, but also on your face. It is easier for some to grow facial hair than others.

Why do people suffer from a lack of facial hair?

Alopecia barbae is an autoimmune disease which results in hair falling out in small regions of your chin. This often leaves your facial hair looking patchy and can be stressful and upsetting for some people. Other conditions such as lupus and cancer can also cause facial hair loss in men.

Why do people want more facial hair?

According to research, men with beards are more attractive to women because they appear more ‘rugged’ and ‘masculine’. So, as well as keeping you warm this winter facial hair will also prove to be more popular with the ladies! As well, because of the various different ways that your beard and moustache can be shaped and coloured, facial hair can be used to express one’s individuality and sense of style.

How do Beard Transplants work?

For those who are seeking a fuller beard, you will be happy to know that there are ways around the lack of facial hair. Using a non-invasive method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), hair follicles are taken from a donor area, which could be the back of your head or your chest. These follicles are then individually situated in the area where you are lacking hair. Depending on the desired style, the technique takes around 3-9 hours. This technique can also be used for other areas of your face, such as your eyebrows.
