Hair loss is not limited to the scalp hair. Similar to hair transplantation, many patients seek treatment for various conditions affecting the facial hair. In these cases, delicate techniques can be applied to facial hair for a solution. Beard transplantation can be used to cover up bald patches in the facial area, to increase the local density of hair such as for a full mustache or beard around the chin and to increase the general density of hair all around the beard area. Beard transplantation is also useful for covering up scars such as acne scars, wounds and marks.
