Hair loss at any age can be hard to cope with. What do you do? Should you start with medications or alternative treatments for hair restoration? Do you go straight for a hair transplant?

There are some decisions to make, no doubt. But, what age is best for a hair transplant? Keep reading to get the answers you need to help you choose the right path to healthy new hair growth!

What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many factors that can contribute to hair loss. Genetics, age, hormonal imbalance, poor hair care, scalp infection, certain medications, and immune system disorders are all reasons one might experience loss of hair. Stress can make hair loss worse.

Should I Begin With Alternative Methods for Hair Restoration?

If you are younger than 30 years old, it is likely your dermatologist will recommend other methods of hair restoration. The best age range is between 23 and 60.

Natural supplements, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections, deep hair cleansing treatments, and laser therapy have proven successful at stimulating hair follicles and encouraging new hair growth.

So, What Age Is Best for a Hair Transplant?

Because there is not one “right” age for a hair transplant, it’s a decision made with your dermatologist on a case-by-case basis.

In most cases, it is recommended to wait until you are at least 30 years of age. This is because hair loss at that age is usually stabilized, slow, and predictable.

What Happens If I Have a Hair Transplant Too Soon?

Hair loss can make a person feel pretty desperate and more than willing to jump into a hair transplant. The problem is having one too soon can present problems.

Without a defined pattern to your baldness, you could end up with patchy results because it will be difficult for your dermatologist to distinguish where hair loss might occur in the future. The other problem is you might end up paying for a second hair transplant before you’re ready.

Do I Qualify for a Hair Transplant?

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant technique involves harvesting individual hair follicles from a donor site (usually the sides or back of your head) and then transplanting them into areas of need. This requires you to have healthy donor hair.

In addition, you should have a clearly defined pattern of hair loss or have experienced loss of hair due to scarring, cosmetic surgery, or scalp injuries. You can also qualify for a hair transplant if you’ve previously had successful transplant procedures.

There are certain conditions that may affect your candidacy. Temporary hair loss, poor scalp health, uncontrolled diabetes, and other health conditions might make it unnecessary or unsafe for you to proceed with transplant surgery.

During your hair transplant consultation, your dermatologist will review your medical history, health conditions, and medications. They will also ask questions about your hair loss and examine your scalp. All of this is done to make sure you’re a good candidate for a hair transplant.
