Hair loss is an issue for many men. As they grow older, they see their hair getting thinner and thinner. Hair restoration is the best solution to this issue. But what is hair restoration? How does it work? Is it efficient?
Here is everything you need to know about hair restoration.
What is hair restoration?
Hair restoration is a medical and surgical procedure aiming to get one’s hair back. Hair restoration involves a hair transplant procedure. There are many hair transplant techniques, but they are all based on the same concept: the hair at the top of the head falls because it is sensitive to androgen, while the hair at the side of the head is resistant. Androgen is a male hormone responsible for both manly features and hair loss.
Some hair transplant techniques, such as FUT, are outdated, while the most common hair transplant technique nowadays is FUE. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. This technique has many advantages: it is relatively cheap and efficient to cover large bald spots with no visible scars, and the result is somehow natural-looking.
However, FUE is not the best technique available and counts some downsides. The grafts sit in a solution leading to some loss. The surgeon has to open tiny incisions in the scalp to implant the grafts into the donor area; this step causes a couple of downsides of this technique: first, the surgeon cannot precisely control the implantation angle of the grafts. Then, incision means open wounds and necrosis, increasing the risk of infection and complication.
The best technique avalaible is DHI. DHI stands for Direct Hair Implantation and is an evolution of the FUE technique. Unlike FUE, the DHI procedure does not involve the rest of the grafts in the solution, so their survival rate is higher. The surgeon implants the grafts directly in the recipient area with the ‘CHOI pen.’ With this unique tool, the surgeon controls the implantation angle, and there is no need to open tiny incisions. The result is much more natural, there is no necrosis of the skin, and the infection risk is minimal as there are no open wounds.
Who needs hair restoration?
This procedure is suitable for individuals suffering from androgenic alopecia. This condition concerns more than 70% of men and is due to androgen, a male hormone responsible for manly features and hair loss. This loss occurs progressively on the top of the head. The hair on the sides and the back of the head are genetically resistant to androgen and do not fall.
The concept of hair restoration involves this observation. The surgeon harvests the grafts among the hair resistant to androgen, so the transplant results are long-lasting.
