How are hair restoration and baldness treatment done?
A hair loss of 150-200 per day is normal. This number may appear higher in the persons with long hair. In men and women, most of the hair shedding is the androgenic type, that is the male type. This type of shedding is more prominent in the upper and front scalp, the nape region continues producing hair. While shedding is maximum in men at approximately 40 years of age, it peaks in women after menopause.
There are a few methods of treatment for hair shedding; hair plantation can be used. In this technique, hair roots in the nape region are transferred to the seed region. This procedure can be performed with a laser, but the results with non-laser techniques are better. Because laser forms the hole in which the hair root will be put by burning, and this delays wound healing.
There is a second method; if there is a completely hairless area, this area is removed in a few sessions, and after the complete removal of the hairless area, a few hair roots are planted on the linear scar and a successful result is obtained.
The third method is; transferring some of the hairy scalps to the hairless area without compromising its blood flow, which we call a “flap”.
The fourth method is; enlarging the hairy scalp using a tissue expander balloon, and subsequently removing the balloon and transferring the expanded skin to the hairless area. This is one of the two-sessions techniques and 1-2 months must pass between the two sessions for the balloon to be inflated.
Hair restoration is not a standard procedure.
Which one of these techniques will be more useful depends on the shedding and hair type. The most appropriate method will be determined by the aesthetic surgeon.
What is FUE Hair transplant?
Follicular Unit Extraction, medically referred to as follicular unit transplantation, is the most popular technique of hair restoration. FUE is a more advanced method of hair transplants than previous techniques such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).
During an FUE transplant, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (the nape, the back of the head) with a specialized equipment less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles taken from the donor area are transferred to the recipient area on the scalp and implanted via a specialized stereo microscope(without or less hair).
As a hair transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, it can be made by a local anesthesia. In a hair transplant with FUE technique, the recovery time is short and the complication’s risk is minimum.
• We will describe and apply it on the 2nd day of the procedure.
• Firstly, shake the PANTHENOL SPRAY bottle. Then spritz the spray to the recipient area. Make sure that the foam covers the whole recipient area.
• Let it sit on the recipient area for 1 hour for the scabs and clots to soften. Do not apply it on the donor area.
• Then rinse it with warm and non-pressurized water.
• Afterwards, lather up the foam in your palms and apply it abundantly by pressuring gently without scrubbing both on the donor and recipient area and rinse with warm water.
• After rinsing, dry with paper towels by pressing gently and avoid rubbing. Optionally you can use the blow dryer on the lowest and cool setting 5 days after the procedure.
• 7 days after washing your hair, you can wash your hair by massaging gently with your fingertips.
All the scabs should fall off in 14 days at the latest.
After all the scabs fall off, discontinue using the spray.
Use the shampoo until it is finished, and once it is finished you can use a shampoo of your choice.
