Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant / Restoration

Hair Transplantation involves removing small pieces of hair-bearing scalp grafts from a donor site and relocating to a bald or thinning area. The Truth about hair loss Baldness is often blamed on poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dandruff and even excessive hat-wearing. All of these theories has been disproved. It’s also untrue that hair loss can be determined by looking at your maternal grandfather or that 40-years-old men who haven’t lost their hair will never lose it. Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of:

  • Aging/A change in hormones/ Family history of baldness.
As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more server the baldness will become. Hair loss can also can caused by burns or trauma, in which case hair replacement surgery is considered a reconstructive treatment, and may be covered by health insurance.
  • FUE doesn’t leave a linear scare, it may be appropriate for patients who want to wear their hair very short. It is also an advantage for those involved in very strenuous activities, such as professional athletes, who must resume these activities very soon after their procedure.
  • The technique is also useful for those who have healed poorly from traditional strip harvesting or who have a very tight scalp. FUE also allows the surgeon to potentially remove hair from parts of the body other than the donor scalp, such as the beard or trunk, although there are many limitations with the process.
  • Possibly the most straight- forward application of this technique is to camouflage a linear donor scar from a prior hair transplant procedure. In this technique, a small amount of hair is extracted from the area around a linear donor scar and then placed directly into it.
Some patients desire FUE simply because they heard that FUE is less invasive than FUT or is non-surgical. The reality is that both procedures involve surgery and in both cases the depth of the incisions (i.e. into the fat layer right below the hair follicles) is the same. The difference is in the type of incision made. In FUE there are multiple round incisions scattered diffusely through the donor area and in FUT there is one single, long incisions in the middle of the donor area. FUE should be chosen if the multiple round incisions are preferred and not because the technique is “non-surgical”.

PRP (Hair Medical Procedure)

Patients who are good candidates for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection indicate they are not interested in surgery, want to prevent more hair loss, and are currently experiencing a lot of miniaturized hair.

A non-surgical solution for hair restoration. Structurally, PRP is a biometrix that repairs and remodels damaged tissue. In hair restoration, PRP will be injected into the scalp. The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and localized cell growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss.

The recovery from PRP therapy is quite safe and painless. Some mild swelling of the forehead is occasionally seen 4-6 hours after PRP injections. This is normal and will resolve in 48 hours. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone. There is no other downtime. Patients can wash their hair normally after 2 days of the procedure.

New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.

Vampire Facelift

Vampire Facelift with its healing and regenerative properties can stimulate skin rejuvenation to result in younger smother glowing skin. This is for the people who do not want to inject potential harmful chemical into their body and are looking for something natural and organic. They are at a war against wrinkles, dull face, dark circles and sagging skin but fear undergoing the knife. This is where getting a bloodbath can come to the rescue.

All these concerns are addressed by Selphyl or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or popularly known as Vampire Facelift, a rejuvenating aesthetic treatment that naturally encourage the skin to build more skin cells and thus renew itself. In this procedure own blood (hence the name Vampire) rich in powerful growth factors is drawn from the patient’s body and separated in its key components delivering platelet-rich plasma or PRP. Vitamins and amino acid are mixed with the plasma and then re-injected into areas that are needed to be pumped up. This PRP would stimulate collagen production which would tighten skin cells and lead to long lasting effect.
