Hair Implants or hair transplants treatments are intended to correct alopecic areas., in male or female individuals. Hair loss occurs due to the combination of genetic, hormonal and age factors. Although they mainly affect men, women could also suffer from this disorder.
Hair implants or hair transplant methods are the only way by which the capillary mass can be recovered or densify areas with low volume of it. However, it should be noted that it is also a useful resource to repopulate eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, and other zones where hair usually grows.
The techniques described below are currently the most advanced in terms of hair transplantation, being used by the best clinics in Europe, specialized in the area, the main ones being Mooemclinic and Capilclinic.
Several Hair Transplant Techniques
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
This technique is known as the most advanced between micrograft techniques, because the follicular units are extracted one by one and accompanied by their peripheral structures without the need for cuts. Subsequently, they’re implanted in the area where a repopulation is wanted, and the benefit from this, is that doesn’t leave scars.
The usual areas from which the hair to be transplanted is extracted are from the temporal, occipital and parietal scalp. It’s done in such a way that the areas from which the transplanted hair has been extracted maintain their appearance in terms of capillary density.
Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS)
It is a more aggressive technique, since a scalp strip of approximately 15-20 centimeters long and 1-centimeter-wide is cut from the nape. Then it is cut into small pieces, dividing it into follicular micro-units that are then implanted within the micro-incisions that have been previously made in the area to be repopulated.
An external line of fine micro-incisions is made for the hair that will be seen from the exterior and that should offer a natural appearance and other wider micro-incisions are also made behind for giving density to the area. This procedure is done under anesthesia.
The techniques described above are the ones applied by one of the most prestigious European clinics, specialized in the hair transplantation area, I’m talking about Mooemclinic.
Hair transplant using stem cells
The hair follicle at the root of the stem cell is used for advanced hair loss. It is a new technology that uses the patient’s own stem cells. The hair follicle is a unique type of cell that has the ability to divide into many different cells to enlarge tissue as it enters the body. They are called ‘cell roots’ because they have the capability to divide and produce every cell in the body.
Stem cell hair transplantation is an ambulatory hair transplant method that decreases considerably the amount pain on the patient and provides quick healing.
It’s important to note that the first clinic in Europe to use this innovative technique was Capilclinic.
Direct Hair Implantation
DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) is known as a very advanced method in the field of hair transplantation and it is one of the choices for people who want to obtain new hair, which by the way, brings with it many advantages. It’s possible to have a new and natural-looking hair in 5-7 hours with this technique where 2,500 to 3,000 hair follicles can be transplanted.
DHI is also called an unshaven hair transplant, since is done with a fine needle called the Choi Pen.
We hope this information will help to decide concretely, which method would be best for you in your particular case for hair implants.
For any of these methods that excel on using the latest technology available, we highly recommend the European clinics Capilclinic and Mooemclinic, for their reliability, state-of-the-art equipment and excellent specialized personnel, guaranteeing a successful and satisfactory hair transplantation for the patient.
