How Hair Transplants Can Improve Migraines

If you’re seeking relief for migraines, you’re not alone. Over 38 million adults in the United States suffer from recurring migraines. It’s easy to see how Neograft hair transplants can boost confidence by giving patients a full head of hair, but did you know FUE hair restoration with leading NYC hair restoration specialist Dr. Halaas also has the potential to cure migraines?

A studies have shown that hair transplants can relieve migraines and help put an end to migraine related symptoms such as nausea, throbbing and sensitivity that interfere with daily life. Researchers have found hair implants in bald or thinning migraine sufferers may be an alternative to using medications for migraine treatment. Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Yael Halaas has over 17 years of experience providing hair transplants and hair restoration to clients affected by hair loss.

What is a Migraine?

While the exact cause of migraines is difficult to pinpoint, they are linked to genetics and tend worsen by hyperactivity in the brain. More than 13 % of Americans are affected by this neurological disease, which results in a lessened quality of life and is responsible for lost days at work due to debilitating symptoms. Men and women who experience acute or chronic migraines may suffer side effects such as upset stomach, throbbing pain one on side of the head, sensitivity to light or blurred vision.

Ending Hair Loss (Alopecia) and Migraines with One Treatment

New studies suggest a way to get rid of migraines without having to raid your medicine cabinet. Recently, evidence has been found that hair transplants can cure migraines. If you suffer from both migraines and hair loss, FUE hair restoration could significantly reduce pain associated with migraines. Studies show that as the hair restoration expert cuts into the scalp, nerves and sensory tissue are severed. Once healed and regenerated, these nerves and sensory tissue are less likely to cause migraine symptoms. The new and improved neural pathways created by FUE hair transplants are a promising way to end migraine pain once and for all.
