Hair Stem Cell Transplantation
To know if hair transplantation is the right solution for you,
it is important to understand what exactly hair loss is.
What does hair loss really mean?
What causes hair loss?
Is there a difference in hair loss between men and women?
A REVOLUTIONARY TECHNIQUE
The scalp contains tens of thousands of follicular units: “little factories” that continuously produce hair. The average number of follicular units on the scalp is about one hundred thousand and is genetically determined.
People with blond hair generally have more follicular units than people with brown hair. The follicular units are covered with soft collagen and develop in a cycle of three phases: growth (anagen), regression (catagen), and rest (telogen).
When you lose your hair, the follicular units go into standby mode (ketogenic).
In a period of time that varies from two to twelve months, the follicular units become active again and the cycle starts again.
The normal hair growth cycle usually lasts from two to five years and follows three stages: first, the hair grows actively, then there is a resting period, and then the hair falls out. Normally excessive hair loss occurs when the growth phase is too short. Although there are many causes and diseases that cause hair loss, androgenic alopecia is the most common cause for both men and women.
An often psychological problem
Is hair loss a source of suffering?
During the normal aging process, our hair becomes thinner and less dense.
The influence of male hormones in men and women plays an important role and this explains why very few people over the age of 75 have a dense head of hair.
However, male pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia) occurs in both men and women. When this phenomenon occurs at a young age, it is known as premature baldness. Hair transplantation is the right solution for this kind of hair loss.
As baldness can worsen over the years, we advise our younger clients to postpone their treatment for the best possible results.You can psychologically suffer because of hair baldness. Bald men are eight times more subject to développement of skin cancer, some studies have demonstrated, while men with a full head of hair are not subject to that. For this reason alone, covering bald areas during hair transplantation can be clinically beneficial. The Partial Longitudinal Follicular Unit Transplantation method, also known as Hair Stemcell Transplantion, is an innovative hair transplantation technique developed by Dr. Coen Gho. It consists of the extraction of portions of follicular units with very small needles (diameter 0.5 – 0.6 mm).
Research has shown that only a portion of the follicular unit is sufficient to reproduce itself. This is because stem cells are found in the tissue used for the graft, as well as in the tissue left in the “donor” area.
This results in new growth of hair of the same quality as the original in both the donor and recipient areas. A unique method, thanks to the synergistic participation of a specially developed and patented medium that guarantees the vitality of the grafts and gives the right stimulation to the stem cells to grow.
