Hair Transplant Treatment

So much of hair fall can be scary but don't worry, it is not irreversible. So if you suddenly see clumps on your hairbrush don't act out because science is here to help. One recently developed hair transplant therapy is DHT technology that can help your hair grow back. So lets start to learn more about this technique.

What Is The Direct Hair Transplant Technique & What Are Its Benefits? :-

In hair transplantation, the survival rate of the harvested graft depends on the several factors such as hydration, cool temperatures, low mechanical handling and asepticism. All these factors improve favorably if the exit time from the body is significantly reduced.

In a DHT transplant, they are implanted immediately after the graft is removed. In other methods, it is not transplanted as quickly. Due to this, hair survival under DHT is increased by leaps and bounds and is reduced by physical handling, mechanical trauma, prone to drying, hypoxia, infection and hot grafts. These factors result in a high quality hair transplant that looks completely natural.

How Much Reliable & Effective As Compared To FUE? :-

DHT is a modified version of FUE, but much better. After it was invented in 2013, the research shared with the world through a highly respected peer-reviewed scientific journal. Since then, DHT has become the undisputed alternative to hair transplant for patients and surgeons alike.

DHT implants require specialized equipment that gives the surgeon a great deal of control with respect to the angle, depth and direction of the implanted hair. This degree of control allows the surgeon to customize each hair transplant for each patient and the result looks completely natural. This is why they are highly reliable.

What Is The Recovery Time? :-

It usually takes 7 days to fully recover from the procedure and up to a year to see results. It should also be noted that patients go through stage 4 when the hair starts to fall out 6 weeks after the hair transplant. This is called shock loss and its expected. However, after the eighth week, we see an increase in hair density every fortnight. After all, in a year, we see the final result.

What Practices Are Needed To follow After The Procedure? Is There Any Side Effects? :-

Post-procedure, a patient needs to do:

* Avoid touching or messing with the transplanted area.

* Avoid hitting their head with any external objects like car door, ceiling, wall etc. Avoid sleeping prone, so that implanted grafts are not damaged by pressure/rubbing.

* Spray saline on the area where the transplantation is done at 3-hour of intervals for the first 72 hours after surgery.

* For the back of the head, use a Betadine Scrub to wash the scalp. Wear a loose hat or nothing on your head after surgery.

* Patients can resume their normal physical activity from the next day itself. They can start heavy physical exercise after 6-7 days.

* They can start using their normal/mild shampoo after 7 days of surgery.
