To obtain more information and assess whether you are a candidate or not, you can contact us at 4001-2899.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for a hair transplant is to schedule a consultation with our DHI doctor specialized in hair implantation, thereby evaluating the current condition of your scalp, determining whether or not you suffer from alopecia, and offering the best treatment for your individual need.
The most common hair loss and the one we treat at DHI is androgenic alopecia. This condition can occur in both men and women. Early detection and care is the key to a successful treatment.
During your consultation, DHI professionals will perform a complete examination of your scalp, as well as diagnostic tests to evaluate the quality and density of the back of the head, since healthy hair follicles will be taken from there and must be in the optimal conditions to be considered a donor area.
The DHI hair transplant procedure consists of placing hair follicles of the same person in a place where there are empty spaces or less density than before.
The procedure lasts a few hours and you can return home on the same day. It is safe, and in a controlled environment. The use of local anesthesia will take away any pain or discomfort you may have. Depending on the amount of hair follicles needed, the procedure can be done in one or two consecutive days, as we shorten time to make the experience enjoyable and to offer the longest possible survival of hair follicles.
Hair follicles are cared for, complying with strict protocols to achieve the highest effectiveness, taking care of the vitality of the hair follicles in order to achieve successful and natural-looking results.
You have surely heard about techniques such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) also known as the strip technique. These techniques require previous cuts in the skin during the implantation process, they are carried out by multiple technicians simultaneously, altering the desired results. In addition, in the FUT technique, it is necessary to cut and remove part of the back part of the scalp, requiring stitches in the donor area.
On the other hand, the DHI technique does not require cuts in the donor area and the patented implanter allows one hair to be placed very close to the other obtaining the desired results. The procedure is performed from start to finish by a single internationally trained hair implant Doctor.
DHI has simple steps for success:
Welcome: We will provide you with a consent form, comfortable clothing for the procedure, vital signs are taken, pictures before and after selected design markings, shaving your hair, and washing your scalp.
1. EXTRACTION PHASE
The patient is positioned on a soft and comfortable chair, face down in order to extract the follicles precisely one by one. It is done with a punch of 1mm or less in diameter, customizing the angle, depth, and direction of each hair.
The extracted follicles are cleaned, classified by hair number and ordered in a special tray which contains hypothermosol (a substance that maintains the vitality of the hair for hours when outside of the skin).
The amount of time the procedure takes will vary from patient to patient and will depend on the ease of extraction, the type of skin, the quality of the donor area, and the amount of hair follicles that have to be extracted. However, the extraction phase will never exceed a maximum of 4 hours. A count of the hair follicles is done per hour until the agreed amount is reached.
Once the extraction is finished, the patient will be informed of the exact number of hairs and follicles extracted, to proceed to a lunch or rest period of 20 to 30 minutes.
2. IMPLANTATION PHASE
The implantation takes place after lunch, having all the extracted hair counted. When observing the affected area, a personalized mathematical distribution of the hair follicles is made to guarantee optimal results.
The follicles are placed one by one with the help of our patented implanter, which allows the specialist to implant according to the angle, direction, and depth that each patient requires, obtaining great results with the desired density.
The results can be seen as early as 7 days after the procedure. You will see the hair grow having a slight idea of how the implant will look.
It is important to bear in mind that when transplanting hair from one place to another the life cycle is altered, a shock phase or hair loss will occur, beginning around the first month and up to month 4. This happens since the hair needs to fall in order to grow permanently, approaching month 5 you will begin to notice the changes of the implant with final results 12-18 months after the procedure. It is important to take into account that the existing hair will not change the course of its life cycle, only the implanted one for approximately the first 4 months.
