HAIR TRANSPLANT TYPES: WHICH IS THE BEST?
Hair loss is a problem that bothers many people. Even though there are numerous types of treatments and therapies available that promise to end the problem, most of them are completely ineffective and can even have opposite effects that pose a health risk. However, there are several types of hair transplant that can eliminate baldness completely.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IMPLANT AND TRANSPLANT
Hair transplantation is a method used to transfer natural hair strands or some kind of natural tissue to bald areas of the head. On the other hand, hair transplantation was a form commonly used in the past to treat baldness, using synthetic threads on the scalp to cover baldness. However, this method is no longer used because it poses a health risk, but it has become synonymous with hair transplantation, which is a safe and completely effective technique against hair loss.
HAIR TRANSPLANT TYPES
We have already talked about FUE and FUT method, which are the main techniques used for hair transplantation, on the blog. However, there are other less used methods. Check it out below.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a technique that consists of removing the existing wires from a follicle to be placed elsewhere. In summary, the motorized version is a type of hair implant that uses a motor to collect the strands. The device is used by professional professionals who collect it through a small circular incision in the scalp around the hair follicle. The motor then makes a hole with a microsurgical needle where the grafts will be inserted. However, to perform the procedure, the patient is given local anesthesia and the operation may take more than 4 hours depending on the area to be transplanted.
In addition, this type of hair transplantation, which uses the FUE method as a base, is a more advanced technique performed with a robot that removes the thread of the grafts with thread and prevents scarring or stitches in the area. The method has practically the same advantages as the Motorized FUE, but this technique allows the procedure to be performed in a shorter time.
LONG HAIR TRANSPLANT
Long-haired hair transplantation, also known as Preview Long Hair, is a type of hair transplantation in which the roots are used without the need to cut the hair strands. In summary, as with other techniques, the patient does not need to shave his hair to perform the procedure. This method is very popular among women with baldness problems, as the hair falls out only one month after the operation.
HAIR TRANSPLANT WITH DHI IMPLANTATION
Hair transplantation technique with DHI implantation uses an implant pen. At the end of the device, there is a needle that takes hair follicles and implants them at the same time. That is, the follicle is removed from the donor area and at the same time already inserted into the needle and implanted into the recipient area.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE TYPE OF HAIR TRANSPLANT?
It is important to state that each type of hair transplant we mentioned has its own characteristics. So, the technique chosen will depend on the situation. In fact, the professional should make careful consideration before specifying the best method to perform the procedure.
