The hair restoration industry has been constantly evolving in recent years as new technologies and cutting-edge products have entered the marketplace, and 2023 is going to be yet another year in which men and women everywhere will have new options in terms of addressing hair loss.
Whether it’s hair transplants or receding hairline treatments, more people are addressing their hair loss needs than ever before (and they’re not all aging men). This increasing demand in hair restoration is largely due to the breaking down of cultural stigmas that currently dominate the industry, and below are some trends that will continue to make headlines this year:
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Grafts
Hair transplant technology has evolved tremendously in recent years, and FUE is significantly better today in 2023 than it was just five years ago. This overall improvement is largely due to hybrid punch technologies, which offer some incredible benefits.
Two of these benefits include improved rotational energy, as well as a flared punch. So in 2023, it’s safe to say that more people (particularly women) will choose FUE hair grafts as opposed to more traditional strict grafts.
Increased Complimentary Use of Nutritional Supplements
The days of men and women solely relying upon their hair restoration or receding hair line treatments are long gone, because in 2023, more people are aware of the need to go the next step further with their treatment processes.
Nutritional supplements are incredibly important when it comes fully addressing hair loss for long-term results, and more hair restoration specialists are honing in on nutrition as a part of their overall services. This type of holistic approach to hair restoration is changing how hair specialists market themselves, and it’s subsequently changing their target audiences as well.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
SMP is an incredible technology when it comes central hair density and hiding scars, and a lot of people will utilize this technology shortly after a hair transplant procedure.
This is why it’ll be a growing trend throughout the entire hair restoration industry to see more SMP professionals emerge and provide these services that require expertise. And what’s even more encouraging is that many of the newest SMP professionals come from all different backgrounds, so this niche profession is quickly becoming one of the most diverse roles in the entire industry!
Female Hair Transplants
The stigma against female hair restoration and transplants is quickly fading in 2023, and more female patients are receiving treatment after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and for high hairlines.
Receding hairline treatment is no longer just for males, because women of all ages are receive this treatment in high numbers as well.
Increasing Awareness of Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA)
FFA is a different type of hair loss that’s largely linked to sunscreen usage, and it’s typically very different as compared to conventional hair loss.
FFA is a type of hair loss that more people are becoming aware of in 2023, and it requires professional guidance due to transplants typically not being the correct solution. Because many people are just beginning to increase their FFA awareness, it’s safe to say that there will be more diversity amongst hair restoration patients as more people of all backgrounds come to understand the true source of their hair loss.
Facial Hair Transplants
Facial hair transplants are also emerging this year as a popular hair restoration procedure, and these procedures often support patients after corrective surgeries (or simply addressing sparse beards). Baby-face stigmas continue to affect countless young men throughout America in terms of career growth and social acceptance, and hair restoration specialists are on the front lines of helping young men to overcome these unfortunate, superficial hurdles.
Transgender Hair Transplants
This industry trend is helping address gender fluidity on a very broad scale, and it also helps transgender patients with many other specific needs. Many transgender people are interested in hair transplants and other types of hair restoration procedures, and in 2023, these types of services are becoming more normalized and readily available than they were in the past.
The stigmas against the transgender community are all-too-real for countless Americans, and this is one of the biggest cultural barriers that the hair restoration industry is currently breaking down for good!
