Micro transplant of hair
This new technique optimizes the donor zone (30 to 50% of micro-transplants), and provides enhanced thickness for an even more natural look.
Hair follicle transplant offers the advantage of a much more attractive look than other methods of hair transplant. Contrary to what people believe generaly, human hair doesn't grow hair by hair but by a group of hairs. If you look at the scalp with a magnifying micro camera, you will see that little groups of 1 to 3 hairs grow together. These little groups are called follicle units. By transplanting follicle units, the donnor zone is dissected into constituent follicle groups.
Our binocular microscope technique obtains realistically 30% of the hair from a donor zone of the same size, because it reduces waste and damage to the follicles. With a supplementary technique know as "dense packing", it is possible to implant more than 40 follicle units per square centimeter of the receiving zone. This represents more than 100 hairs per square centimeter during one transplant session.
Since the donor zone is implanted with long and short hairs, we harvest all the small hairs that arent't seen by the naked eye. This is simply because the thickness of the final result on the head of the patient is a fonction of the total number of hairs transplanted.
We use up to 3,000 hair follicle transplants during a regular single session. We thus attain a respectable thickness over an area the size of the palm of your hand. This is the average size of a transplanted area using minor standard transplants. Few patients need a second session for the same zone to increased thickness.
To obtain the same results, 3 to 4 sessions of traditional micro-transplants would be necessary.
