What is hair transplant
Hair transplant is the only permanent solution to baldness and hair loss. It′s the single best investment that you can make.
Before understanding hair transplant, we must understand hair from a scientific viewpoint.
- Keratin, a type of protein is the basic component of hair.
- There are many layers of keratin on the outside of a hair.
- A hair follicular unit is a group of hair cells. We have about 100,000 follicular units on our scalp.
- We lose 50–100 hair everyday. When we start losing more than that, it’s a symptom of baldness.
The most common type of baldness is male-pattern baldness. Scientists call it androgenetic alopecia. Here andro is short for androgens, male hormones present in both men and women. Genetic means caused by genes, and alopecia is a Greek word for “hair loss”.
Hair Transplant Techniques
What is Bio-FUT?
Bio – Follicular Unit Transplantation (Bio-FUT) is an enhanced version of generic FUT at Rejoice™. Both of these techniques utilize transplant of follicular units. These units are naturally occurring groups of 1–4 hair. An experienced surgeon can transplant thousands of grafts in a single session. Bio-FUT hair grows and looks like natural hair.
The Bio-FUT process starts with applying anesthesia using Rejoice™ Near Zero Pain. This makes the procedure almost painless. We then extract a strip from the donor area (side and back of your head). We can determine the appropriate length and width of donor strip using trichoscan. This strip contains the roots of hair that are permanent and never fall out.
