Hair transplantation is the process of recovery of hair by natural means for men and women who suffer from hair loss due to genetic factors, metabolic changes especially in women, stress and other factors. The aim of hair transplantation is to restore the natural look of hair. This is achieved through the collection of healthy hair follicles from the patient; these follicles are then transplanted to the area of hair loss. Unlike the front and top sections of the head, certain areas around the back of the head are home to hair follicles genetically resistant to hair loss. The healthy hair follicles in this area can be transplanted to desired areas which show thinning, hair loss or balding.

With the developments in technology today there are many techniques available in the field of hair transplantation, and many new techniques are added every day. Today, these new techniques allow transplantation of hair, beard and moustache follicles in the fastest and most pain free method, providing a thicker and more natural appearance.
Used as the most widespread hair transplantation nowadays, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method involves the collection of hair follicles at the back of the head one-by-one without creating a linear incision. The graft collection process is performed under local anaesthesia to ensure there is no pain or discomfort when the follicles are collected as in vivo using small punch tips creating small cuts, and then these follicles are transplanted into hairless areas. Providing better comfort and ease in comparison to preceding methods the FUE method does not require stitching since there is no incision in the donor area and thus does not leave any permanent mark. In addition, FUE hair transplantation technique also allows the use of various parts of the body as donor areas for hair transplantation.
One of the latest trending pain-free anaesthesia methods is the technique known as Comfort-in. This technique is a variation of the FUE hair transplantation method. This method is generally preferred by those with a needle phobia (trypanophobia). The practical mechanism of Comfort-in method involves spraying anaesthesia fluid under the skin by pressure on the target area of the needle, thus providing local anaesthesia. This both frees the patient from needle pain, and assures the medication is dispersed on an area larger than the needle profile.
Although predicating on the FUE method, DHI hair transplantation is applied in a slightly different manner. The most important feature that makes this method different is that the treatment is done without shaving hair. While typical FUE methods involve 3 steps comprised of Graft Collection, Channel Creation and Follicle Transplant, DHI hair transplant method differs in the Channel Creation step, which is not performed as a separate action. In DHI method grafts are collected by a medical pen under local anaesthesia and then channel creation and follicle transplantation actions are performed at once in a process of seconds. Hair transplantation process performed in 3 steps in typical FUE technique is reduced to 2 steps in DHI technique thanks to use of a medical pen.
Sapphire percutaneous hair transplantation is a new hair transplantation technique that is based on the use of a natural sapphire stone (crystal) to create the channels for hair graft transplantation without damaging the skin. In the Sapphire Percutaneous method, a singular cavity is created for each individual follicle, which results in a natural look. Transplanted hair follicles do not move. Thanks to the creation of an individual cavity for each individual follicle the result is a thicker and more natural appearance. In typical hair transplantation the number of follicles that can be grafted on an area of 1 square centimetre is around 35-40, while the number follicles that can be grafted on the same area can reach up to 70-80. This technique differs according to the skin structure of the person who needs hair transplantation and it is done by a titanium handled and sapphire grooving pen.
Afro Hair Transplantation is a type of hair transplantation preferred by patients with curly and wavy hair. The structure of Afro hair differs from straight hair. Since the angles of subcutaneous follicle are different, it makes the hair transplantation process particularly complicated. The waves of curvy and wavy hair cover more area on the scalp than other hair types, making the use of traditional hair transplantation methods more complex. Therefore, curvy grafts can be damaged more easily thus it is harder to transplant them. If appropriate Micro Punch and angle calculations are not made, significant graft (follicle) losses can be seen during collection, causing great difficulty in reaching the planned follicle numbers. Therefore, every detail of hair must be accurately analysed for AFRO HAIR TRANSPLANTATION.
Failure of hair growth during the puberty period, hair loss or hair thinning in beard and moustache areas due to accidents or infections can cause aesthetic or psychological concerns. To provide people with comfort and self-confidence in such situations the FUE method can be utilised to graft the patient’s own hair follicles.
Hair on areas like moustaches, beards and eyebrows on the face have unique follicle angles. These angles must be taken into consideration during transplantation. Hairs in unwanted areas like upper cheeks or lower neck areas can be collected as grafts and transplanted to more desired areas.
After application reddening can be seen around the transplanted follicles due to increase vascularisation. This is a temporary condition therefore the patient does not need to worry about it. During the first 3-4 weeks the transplanted hairs will fall, and new hair will grow in 8-10 weeks. Moustache and beard hair that continues to grow after transplantation can be shortened with scissors after 15 days or left to grow. The first shaving should preferably be done at least 1 month after the roots are sufficiently attached.
