Does Hair Restoration Turn Gray

09 May, 2023 | Return|

For many people, gray hair is a fact of life that we will all face with time. However, when it comes to transplanted hair, the lack of natural graying can often make the procedure stick out like a sore thumb. At Integrative Medicine of Idaho, we understand how important it is to achieve a natural-looking result from hair restoration procedures.

That's why we're excited to share more information on the Alma TED™ ultrasound hair restoration treatment, which offers today's market's most natural looking option! Dr. Mary and the rest of her team are committed to helping you look and feel your best.

Why Does Hair Turn Gray?

Let's talk about why hair turns gray in the first place. As we age, our bodies produce less melanin, the pigment that gives our hair color. Without melanin, our hair turns gray or white. And unfortunately, there's no way to stop the aging process.

Can Hair Restoration Reverse Graying?

A hair transplant involves surgically moving productive hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another that is balding, thinning, or weak. On the other hand, hair restoration treatments aim to rejuvenate hair follicles to their more youthful appearance and strength.

It's worth noting that hair transplants can age differently. The results can be less natural and even patchy. Plus, you can't dye your hair for up to 6-12 months after the procedure, which can be a bummer if you're trying to cover up those pesky grays.

Here's the million-dollar question: can hair restoration reverse graying? Unfortunately, the answer is no. Hair restoration can't stop the aging process. But it can help you regain some youthful volume and thickness you've been missing.

Which Hair Restoration Grays Naturally?

All hair restoration methods will eventually turn gray, but some procedures can result in a more natural graying process. For instance, the Alma TED™ is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that uses ultrasonic waves to stimulate the scalp's biological regenerative processes.

The Alma TED™ reinvigorates the follicles in the affected area, returning it to its normal appearance and hairline. Studies have shown that the reinvigorated hairs typically come back with their original hue, making it a great option for those looking for a more natural-looking result.
