We talk about Alopecia when there is an unusual hair loss, and you begin to see bald areas on the scalp. The causes in most cases are genetic, hormonal changes, and age.
There are multiple treatments to stop hair loss, but only manage to delay it for a while, hair transplant is the only procedure that manages to get hair to grow in areas where it no longer did, and that generates new follicles.
All cases that present androgenic alopecias, whether male or female. Also alopecias that are product of scars or traumas can be treated with hair grafts.
The procedure of capillary grafting is to obtain hair from an area of the head where there is a greater density of follicles, (this is usually the back of the head) and then cover with these follicles the area affected by alopecia.
Hair transplantation can be performed in patients of any age, who are able to receive treatment. Although it is not recommended to do it before 22 years of age since it is a very premature stage of the fall. In any case, at CapilClinic we care about studying each patient, guaranteeing proper attention to individual needs.
Extracción Individual de los Folículos, por sus siglas en inglés F.U.E. de FollicularUnitExtraction
It is the way in which the hair is grouped. These follicular units are made up of 1, 2, 3, or 4 hairs, and also include dermal papillae, glands, subcutaneous fats, and follicles.
The F.U.E technique allows the follicular units of the donor area to be safely and effectively extracted one by one and grafted in the same procedure in the recipient area. The intervention must be carried out exclusively by professionals with experience in the area, since its correct execution requires prior training.
The DHI technique involves carefully inserting the hair follicle into a hollow needle at the end of the IMPLANTER pen. This is then introduced, pressing down to implant the graft, at an angle with an inclination of 40-45 degrees in the scalp,
From 6 to 7 hours is usually the total duration of a complete session, with scheduled breaks, so that the patient and the doctor can rest, since during the session of F.U.E 3,500 to 5,500 grafts are performed.
Once the effect of local anesthesia has passed, the patient will not feel any pain. However, to suppress any discomfort, analgesics will be indicated.
By distributing the capillary graft homogeneously in the receiving area, a natural result is guaranteed, with which the patient will feel satisfied. The success of the transplants we perform in CapilClinic is due to the results offered by our hair grafts.
The grafted follicles retain their genetic characteristics in the receptor area, so they are expected to last a lifetime.
The hair transplant procedure does not leave a scar.
The DHI technique and the FUE guarantee that the donor area recovers its foliage, that includes the most severe cases in which it has had to extract between 5,000 and 6,000 follicles.
98% of the grafted follicles survive. This procedure is the only treatment capable of making hair grow in the areas where it had fallen,
You can travel the day after the intervention if you need it.
The patient will be able to resume their usual daily routine after 2 or 3 days of having surgery.
During the first month the transplanted hair falls and three months later it begins to grow permanently. This is part of the process, so there is nothing to worry about. Twelve months after the operation you can see the result
The individual characteristics of each patient (type of hair loss, thickness of hair, density of donor area, age and size of the head) determine if it is necessary to perform more than one procedure, however, in the majority of cases treated, it is usually enough with an intervention.
