Hair loss, among other cosmetic problems, is more than just an issue of vanity. It can be the trigger that causes trauma, brings forth psychological issues, and unlocks negative feelings in the subconscious. It is a real problem for both men and women, and while some people may downplay its impact on an individual, there are studies that state otherwise.
Hair Loss as a Health Concern in Men
Corinne Sweet, a hair loss specialist and psychologist, explains that “a full head of hair” is an indicator of three things: health, virility, and sexual attractiveness. As a “secondary sexual characteristic,” Sweet says that the mere thought of losing one’s hair is enough to cause anxiety and lower self-esteem. Statistics show that a quarter of men experience anxiety due to hair loss while one in three men admit to having body image issues because of thinning hair. Sweet explains that the causal relationship between hair loss in men and their anxiety is wrought by feelings of emasculation.
Hair loss, or having no control over physical changes that may affect attractiveness, can cause men to harbor feelings of inadequacy. Sweet adds that some men may feel that “they are not ‘man enough’,” especially when in competition against non-balding men.
As the primary cause of hair loss, male pattern baldness affects 25 percent of men by the time they reach the age of 30, and 67 percent by the age of 60. As such, balding is a natural occurrence, making it a necessary problem that men will have to deal with eventually. In a survey of 1,500 men, 629 confessed that they experience a certain degree of hair loss, and a third of these men admit that it affected their self-esteem and confidence. About four in ten also confirmed they would feel jealous of a man with a full head of hair.
Another study reveals how going bald can serve as an “enormous emotional burden”. Researchers found out that it can cause psychological breakdowns and lead to body dysmorphic disorder, wherein individuals suffer from acute anxiety and exaggerated feelings of unattractiveness. The negative self-perception and persistent body image issues can be detrimental to a person’s capacity to form relationships and succeed in life.
What are Virtual Reality Hair Systems?
Dealing with hair loss has given rise to a variety of hair restoration solutions. Apart from costly surgical hair transplant operations, there are non-surgical methods to hair replacement, such as the “Virtual Reality Hair Systems” from Tony’s Hair Replacement Systems.
A hair unit, as part of a hair replacement system for men, distinguishes itself from a hairpiece for its natural look. Aesthetically, it appears organic through the application of an obscure, non-surgical Derma Lens, wherein human hair is inserted. Through likeness in color, density, curl pattern and texture, Virtual Reality hair can restore the fullness of thinning hair, effectively providing the confidence and sense of self-esteem that were once lost due to balding.
Since 1976, Tony’s HRS has established itself as the premier hair replacement studio in South Carolina. Coupling their extensive experience in the industry with the expertise of hair replacement systems, the studio is more than capable of providing innovative, technological, and traditional non-surgical hair replacement methods.
Businessmen and ordinary people who have suffered from hair loss and are struggling to recover their real selves now have a non-surgical hair replacement option. Both men and women can seek out and learn more about the innovative new system by contacting Tony’s HRS for free consultation.
