Permanent, Effective Solution For Your Hair Loss
If you decide that none of the non-surgical options are right for you, micro-follicular hair transplants might be the best solution. Hair transplants began in 1955. Over the years, hair transplant technology has improved to such an extent that it produces a perfectly natural result and is practically undetectable. It is a very popular and successful solution to permanent hair loss.
Natural and Undetectable
Hair transplantation involves harvesting the hair and follicles (grafts) from one area of the scalp, called the donor area, and skillfully transplanting them to the area in need of hair to achieve a permanent solution to hair loss.
When evaluating you as a potential candidate for transplantation, the doctor takes into consideration the amount and type of donor’s hair available, as well as your age and general health.
The main goal with hair transplantation for men and women is to achieve hair density while retaining a completely natural appearance. The challenge is to reach the ultimate goal without affecting the appearance of the donor area (generally located in the crown or the top of the head). In other words, a person can add only as much hair to the bald area(s) as can be provided by the donor area.
The Science – And Art – Of Hair Transplantation
This is where the surgeon’s and surgical assistants’ qualifications and experience play a major role. It is their skill that will create the look of thicker hair through the size and strategic placement of each graft, the angle of the hair and how closely the grafts are placed together.
The Follicular Unit—The Key To Natural-Looking Result
For many years, hair was thought to grow in single strands. In 1984, the follicular unit, consisting of one to four hair follicles packed together and bound by collagen fibers, was discovered to be the starting point for the growth of hair. These small units allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session, increasing the chance of a more natural-looking result.
The least invasive hair transplants are made using very tiny needles that enable the surgeon to implant the grafts so finely and densely that there is virtually no hint of surgery. Due to these major advances, just one transplant session is sufficient to implant the same density that previously necessitated at least two or more sessions.
