Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that pull-out hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. The technique is generally used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts carry hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp.
Hair transplantation can also be used to bring back eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation vary from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.
Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques bring in and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Thus ultra-modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking the original hair orientation. This hair transplant technique is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair could be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment. Mesotherapy employs various injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy injections apparently target adipose fat cells, ostensibly by inducing lipolysis, rupture, and cell death among adipocytes.
PRP - Therapy
PRP therapy is generally used in hair restoration for natural-looking and shining results. With a fine needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth components in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated. PRP Hair Restoration is fit for both men and women.
Low-Level Laser Therapy
Low-level laser therapy is a safe form of light/heat treatment under investigation for a variety of health indications. It is being used to treat the genetic forms of hair loss common in men and women, androgenetic alopecia, or pattern balding. Low-level laser therapy is also called red light therapy, cold laser, soft laser, biostimulation, and photobiomodulation.
Pattern balding Androgenetic alopecia can affect up to 70% of men (male pattern balding) and 40% of women (female pattern balding) at some point in their lifetime. While men typically present with a distinctive alopecia pattern involving hairline recession and vertex balding, women normally exhibit a diffuse hair thinning over the top of their scalps. For both men and women, losing their hair is a embitter experience.
The current treatment standard for pattern balding is therapy with minoxidil and finasteride, with hair transplantation as a surgical option. However, low-level laser treatment for hair loss is now also promoted as a safe alternative or additional treatment.
Hair Loss Treatment
Signs of hair loss include hair loss in patches usually in circular patterns, dandruff, skin lesions, and scarring. Alopecia areata (mild-medium level) generally shows in unusual hair loss areas, e.g., eyebrows, the backside of the head or above the ears, areas the male pattern baldness usually does not affect. In male-pattern hair loss and thinning begin at the temporal, and the crown and hair either thins out or falls out. In female-pattern hair loss occurs at the frontal and parietal.
People have between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on their head. The number of strands commonly lost in a day differs but on average is 100. In order to maintain a normal volume, hair must be put back at the same rate at which it is lost. The first signs of hair thinning that people will often observe are more hairs than usual left in the hairbrush after brushing or in the basin after shampooing. Styling can also disclose areas of thinning, such as a wider parting or a thinning crown.
