Does Hair Loss Make You Look Old?

The standards of beauty for men and women are very different. While there is some crossover, hair loss for men is an indicator of aging. Hair loss makes men look old and can negatively impact their overall attractiveness. In fact, hair in general can have an impact on people’s perception of a man’s age. Whether it’s the presence or absence of hair on men’s head, face, or even the color of it, hair has an impact on how old men look.

Does Hair Loss Make You Look Old?

Men’s aging revolves around the presence, absence, and color of their hair. Research has proven that things like being overweight and facial wrinkles can make a man look older, but nothing shows a man is aging fast like hair loss. In fact, hair loss is the number one physical trait that people perceive to age a man. It can even add up to eight years, according to research. Hair that is grey comes in second and can add up to seven years. Having a full beard, a goatee, and being heavily unshaven also adds five, four, and three years, respectively. With that being said, having a full head of hair, well-kept facial hair, and your natural hair color can help keep you looking young, or at least looking more your age.

Hair Loss in Men

Hair loss can make men feel less confident and lower their self-esteem. Most often balding begins with a receding hairline and a bald spot on the back of your head. While men may feel alone in their hair loss experience, nearly two-thirds of all men in the United States experience some form of hair loss. The main reason is based on genetics. While hair loss is unwanted and can make men look older and less attractive, there are cosmetic treatments that can help restore your hair and get you feeling like yourself again.

Hair Restoration Denver

Neograft is a form of hair restoration Denver that is minimally invasive. The procedure is a hair transplant treatment that restores your hair follicles. Individual hair follicles are taken from parts of your hair that are thicker and transferred to the balding areas that need it. The technique is referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction (“FUE”). The parts of your hair where the follicles are removed from will not look thinner as the removal is meticulously planned to ensure full coverage. This results in a really natural look as the hair is your own. While this treatment will not change your grey hairs, it can restore the areas that have little to no hair.

One of the major benefits of this treatment is that it requires no scalpels or stitches. This results in very little downtime, and there is little to no pain. In fact, most men can get back to work and their normal daily routine within just a few days. It’s an exciting and affordable option for men who have experienced balding. Neograft looks natural and provides men who have lost their hair with the confidence they lost.
