Prevent Hair Loss
If your hair falls, you will see it all day. On your pillow, in the shower drain, on your desk; hair is everywhere. That can make you feel annoyed and encourages you to look for solutions. We would like to talk about how hair loss occurs and what you can do to prevent it. Note: almost no pill, lotion or shampoo will grow new hairs in a bald spot, although these products sometimes make us think of this. Only a hair transplant is permanent. There are means to reduce the rate of hair loss.
The Hair Transplant
Do you want to permanently remedy a bald spot with real hair? A hair transplant is your only option. A hair transplant is a proven and safe treatment that you enjoy for the rest of your life. In short, a hair transplant works as follows:
A medical team led by a plastic surgeon takes healthy hair follicles out of the hair ring and places them at the desired location: the transplant area. In this way, you will get your own hair back in balding and thin spots. The hair growth that occurs through the hair transplant is permanent. This is because the transplanted hair has a different genetic predisposition than the hair that has fallen out; the donor hairs from the hair ring are immune to the hormone DHT that causes hair loss.
After removing the transplants from the donor area, small incisions (holes) are made in the area where the hairs have to be replaced. This is made with skillful precision so that the transplanted hair eventually gets a natural growth direction. After making the incisions, the grafts are replaced with tweezers. An FUE hair transplant is always performed under local anesthesia because the work takes many hours.
FUE and FUT Technique
For hair transplants, two techniques are used: the FUE hair transplant and the FUT hair transplant. The hair stem cell transplantation and IFUE treatments fall under the same denominator as the regular FUE and FUT hair transplants.
The procedures are the same, only some organizations have given it a different name to distinguish themselves. The difference between an FUE and FUT hair transplant technique is in the way the healthy hair follicles are extracted.
In the FUT technique, the surgeon cuts away a strip of scalp from which the hair follicles are then taken. In the FUE technique, the hair technicians use a tiny hollow needle with different diameters to make the hair follicles one by one out of the scalp. Moreover, this technique is equivalent to much-discussed hair stem cell transplantation.
Hair with MHP
Micro Hair Pigmentation is a tattoo technique. A specialized tattoo artist makes as many hair stubbles as possible with organic inks. This treatment can be a supplement to a hair transplant, with a lower hair density chosen. Because of the pigment that is brought into the scalp, the contrast between the scalp and hair decreases. The hair, therefore, looks fuller, giving you more effect of your hair transplant.
