What Causes Facial Baldness?
Genetics play a strong role in determining the amount, thickness, and density of facial hair. Hormonal factors may also influence the development of facial hair. Facial scarring due to acne or trauma can result in patchy areas of hair loss. Hair is not likely to grow with scars, but may grow well following a beard transplant. A variety of medical illnesses such as thyroid disease and autoimmune disorders can also affect facial hair growth. Meeting with a board certified facial plastic surgeon would help to clarify your cause of facial hair loss.

How Beard Transplants are Performed
In this procedure, hair is relocated from the back of the head to the transplant area. Hair is planted one by one to achieve the look you desire.
Is the Beard Transplant Permanent?
Once the transplant is done, the hair is permanent. Typically, 90 percent of the transplanted hair will grow.
Beard Transplant Healing Process
In approximately two weeks, the transplanted hair follicles will fall out, which is a normal part of the process. The new follicles will start to grow in within about 3 months. It can take up to a year before you see the final results, which will be thicker, permanent, and natural looking.
It should be noted that some of the donor hairs may need to be trimmed approximately once a month and groomed to personal taste. The donated hairs will last a lifetime.
