In a world where appearance and self-image have an essential role in our daily lives, highlighting your appearance and image is a sign of esteem in yourself and a guarantee in professional and personal success.
Advances in equipment and hair graft techniques make it a cosmetic surgery more and more requested. New methods give results increasingly natural ... long-term cases if the practice has not been the right one. The patient must be informed and warned of the chosen method, the doctor and working conditions.
Why does it work?
- Particularly in men, baldness is mainly genetic, that is, hereditary. The usual area of baldness consists of hair follicles that are genetically sensitive to male hormones in a variable surface for each and at a time predetermined depending on the nature hereditary. With the advent of the secretion of these hormones these follicles die over the years, leading the degeneration of hair.
No treatment today can change this problem, but delay it a bit. The only solution is therefore the transplant, where necessary, the follicles that are not genetically sensitive to these hormones: in the case of the follicles of the "crown" (neck areas and side of the head at the top the ears). These follicles are definitive in any place where they are grafted. Implanted again approximately 4mm * below the scalp area will provide a healthy hair that will evolve according to the natural cycle.
- In women’s case, several origins can be the reason, it is therefore essential to do a meticulous investigation and associate appropriate treatments at the right time.
Our methodological approach
At the time when the hair loss becomes visible, it is important not to wait too long for the graft if you think it is necessary and if the hereditary research is positive (that is, at least someone in your family, your father, your grandfather, your brother or an uncle suffering hair loss of the same characteristics).
With the method of 2mm* transplants: there is no loss of follicles because in 2mm* diameter, the follicles are in a small cylindrical piece of scalp with all necessary elements for its follow-up. The extracted area is not damaged. It is estimated that there are approximately six areas of 300 2mm* transplants removable up twice if the density of the crown is normal: that is 300 x 6 x 2 = 3,600 transplants from 4 to 8 removable hair, in other words 21,600 hairs (approximately 6 hair on average per 2mm transplant), which is difficult to achieve with any other method.
For example, there aren’t more than 3 possible extractions for "strip" for a standard transplant of approximately 2,000 hairs every time: that is a maximum of 6,000 hairs, of which 30 to 40% will no longer grow. Let's not talk here from painful scar areas that it is very important to continue producing hair. Today it is increasingly common that we are forced to implant again scars of "strip" with implants 2mm *. In any case, it is always essential to keep a reserve since the depopulation can continue and reach areas over the place, particularly on the edges of the crown that can be narrowed, in these cases, have even celebrated reserve, which is rarely the case after repeated extractions with "strip".
What is IMPORTANT
> We must not lose follicles: unfortunately too aggressive methods, such as cutting "strip" (and the coat one by one of the follicles cut to get the famous "follicular unit) lost a minimum of 30% follicles. FUE of 0.8 mm in diameter * doesn’t often coincide with * 4mm follicle located under the skin because the hair is still turning under it and you can’t align the same follicle in a cylinder 0.8 mm * diameter ... Besides its implant again is difficult and the instrument injection follicles which is often used is not appropriate because it doubles the follicle and compresses the implant, which will prevent its development…
> We must not harm the donor area: to extract a strip of scalp (technique of "strip") and to unstick both edges to bring near with the aim of sewing them, will invariably result in the relaxation and thus widening the scar (hairless) and the sharp decline in the overall density of the rest of the crown, accentuating this effect when operations are repeated. Eventually the fact stretching the scalp to unite the two sides represents a change in the angle of hair that will tend on the back head, making visible the scalp in the cicatrized area of "strips". Very visible in some known artists watched back
> It must, above all, create a sufficient density: the implant of follicular units for 1, 2 or 3 hairs does not provide satisfactory results although it was with a very big session and even with a strong density per 2 cm *. The best results are obtained with implants including nearby and 2mm in diameter that will generate * fine "brushes" of 4 to 8 hairs.
> It is necessary, above all, to obtain a natural look: the technique of "strips" always draws the rear of the crown and consequently hair thicker in diameter. This obliges choose the finest implants: thus one or two hairs to perform the front line and the deceiving hairline, which provides a little dense appearance with thick diameter hair very separated from each other. The method " 2 mm "chooses the finest hair at the base of the neck to provide a dense and fine appearance= natural consequence to the front line.
SCARLESS HAIR TRANSPLANT method... is the combination of all best abilities and techniques that can be used at present:
We have prepared and perfected regularly in our Research Center La Romana (Dominican Republic) after practicing or seeing as all methods were used (actually we have always denied "strip" practice because of the obvious risks of this technique).
We have studied thought and found solutions for each surgical gesture and for every inherent problem in the different anatomies each of the operated people.
We have invented a technique in which the slightest action or procedure is essential to get good results that make the method SCARLESS HAIR TRANSPLANT ... the most meticulous, with the more natural results, painless and scarless.
