In order to understand hair loss we must first understand the difference between hair fall and hair loss.
THE HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
The hair growth cycle consists of three distinct stages – anagen, catagen and telogen.
The growth phase, or anagen phase, lasts an average of 3-5 years,
At the end of the anagen phase, your hair enters the catagen phase. A short transitional phase that lasts approximately 10 days. In this phase the hair root will prepare for sheding the hair.
Lastly, your hair enters the telogen phase, a resting phase when your hair is released and falls out. The follicle then remains inactive for 3 months and the whole process is repeated. Each hair follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times; otherwise all your hair would fall out at once.
Hair Loss Defined: – Post the Telogen phase if the hair follicle is unable to grow a healthy hair the situation is termed as hair thinning. Hair thinning leads to Hair Loss. It happens in phases where in after coming out of the telogen phase the hair follicle is unable to grow a healthy hair, means the new hair will be thinner than before , dull and may appear life less. The overall appearance of the hair keeps getting poor with every cycle until finally the hair follicle is unable to grow an new hair and itself dies.
To understand Male Pattern Baldness it worth knowing that this is the most common type of balding recognized by the hair experts in men. This is a hereditary trait of hair loss.
For those men, who have hair fall or receding hairline in their genetics i.e. in balding in their father, grandfather, uncles and cousins, Male Pattern baldness is never far away. The reason being that balding in men is caused by a male hormone called the Di- hydro-testosterone or DHT. This hormone likes to attach itself to the hair roots with a receptor site. The top hair in men has these receptor sites. Once DHT is in the roots, the blood and oxygen supply is cut off to the hair. A malnourished hair soon loses its fight and falls. When a large amount of hair falls this way it is called hair fall or loss.
But the good news is that the hair at the back and sides of the head does not have these receptor sites. As such there is no chance of DHT affecting this hair. This holds true for the body hair too.
Now do you understand as to why do we always say that we shall take the hair from the back of the head for replacement? Well these are resistant hair— resistant to balding as they never fall off.
iGraft™ offers multiple treatments for combatting hair loss. CBL™, RPPL ™, PRP, Hair strengthening treatments are available to combat early stages of Hair Loss. Please listen to your Hair Expert/ Doctor when they explain all available treatments. We have a solution for every budget.
Well, in very simple words it is the process of transferring hair roots from the places which has abundance of it, to those places where there is no hair growth.
The hair roots are called the hair follicles and these are generally taken from the back of the head as the hair here is resistant to hair fall. The back of the head here is called the Glandjula area and the bald hair patch is called the cranial area.
Ok, this is a technical term used in hair replacement. Let us make it simple for you. Fact is our hair grows in a group of 1-3 strands of hair and they are called grafts. A Graft is group unit which may have 1 Hair( follicle ) or 2 or 3 in it. For example, 2 person having same level of baldness & are suggested with same no. of grafts say 3000. Now 1st person who has more 1’s unit less 2’s & rare 3’s- He will get an output of 3500-4000 Hair follicles out of 3000Grafts considering more 1s, less 2s & rare 3s. However in 2nd person, if 1’s & 2’s are more & 3’s are also available-He will get 5000-5500 Hair Out of 3000 Grafts. Though both person has done same 3000 Grafts and paid same amount to an institution, one gets 4000 hair another gets 5500 hair. Graft wise extraction done in common FUE technique won’t give exact expectation of results. You cannot take an average of 1,2,3 saying every graft at least have 2 hair.
In iGraft we calculate Follicle wise and as an end you get what follicles you are suggested with, even though an individual has any 1’s or 2’s or 3’s ratio. However during the hair replacement procedure we uproot hair roots one by one. This negates the chances of any scars that might occur.
So to answer the question, one follicle means one hair strand.
Absolutely not! You can roam around and carry on with the daily chores free as a bird the very next day onwards. iGraftTM techniques are developed with concern that it takes No recovery time & do not hamper the daily life.
Are you hoping for some time off work!!! Sorry but that would not be required.
That’s your call! If you want to show off your collection of caps you can do so.
General Antibiotics and Pain Killers is all that you will need to pop for 5 to 7 days only.
Please be assured that the medications which would be recommended will mainly be Antibiotics. This is for your quick relief and recovery within days. It has no side-effects.
Well, Just like you we would love to protect your existing hair but the irony of the situation is that this very existing hair is your problem, as they are prone to DHT effects, so sooner or later your existing hair shall fall off for sure…. for preserving the existing hair we advise our Boon Hair Restoration Treatment R’PPLTM – Rich Plasma Platelets Laser Sessions.
However the replaced hair does not need any medications or therapy as the implanted hair is naturally hair fall resistant and therefore permanent.
Put your fears aside….We are here to help you and will never advise any drastic steps which shall radically change your look…..before the procedure starts, our experts will give an idea on the look you would want. In fact you would know how will be your hair line boundary & what result will you get once the procedure is over……. However immediately after the procedure if you are not comfortable you can always wear a special cap given by iGraft doctors. You are ready to party after hair transplant. A special cap given, can hide your look for some days.
This depends on one’s requirement & their donor area. Think of hair replacement as a one-time investment. After all Hair Transplant is going to give you back your hair, your look, your appearance and most important your confidence.
Wow!!! Hold your thoughts…..Yes. You can shampoo your hair from the 6th Day onwards of the procedure. However oiling, heavy exercises, excessive sweating, swimming and gym can be only done after a fortnight. If you ride a bike it is advisable to avoid using Helmet for 10-12 days post procedure.
Relax….your donor area is safe and sound. Though we extract hair with follicles from the back of the head that area still remains the same…. it is just a matter of manipulation of the hair to cover the bald patches and give the balding head a fuller look.
Though, it depends on what treatment option you choose. Hair replacement Non surgical system is an instant result oriented process.
However, unlike Non Surgical system, Hair transplant natural results take some time. Here it is how it works:
My friend! Patience pays….by results of hair transplant if you mean your fully grown crop then you shall need to let nature work its miracle on your transplanted hair for at least 6 months. The end result will make you thank the stars but before that you must understand the process…. from the day your procedure is done, counting that day onwards till 4 weeks, the implanted hair will fall off.
Than for the next two to three months there shall be no growth as the follicles go into the resting phase technically called the Talogen Phase. It is only after this period that the permanent hair starts growing.
The implanted hair grows by 1 to 1.5 cm every month in length. In order to grow to a normal length of 6—8 cm, it takes another 3 to 4 months. Ideally to see the best results you need to give minimum 8 months time. The implanted hair grows naturally just like natural hair and requires no extra ordinary maintenance.
The cost of a Hair transplant is completely dependent on the severity of the baldness. Lets wait till the end of the consultation all your questions will already be answered
iGraftTM specializes in Three different Techniques —- Bio FUE, Direct Follicular Implant (D’FlTM) and Direct Follicular Implant + Plus (D’Fl+TM). Ideally only one of the Technique is used for hair replacement, sometimes due to larger area to be covered a combination of these Techniques can be used on 1 Human Scalp to give you more Hair in one go.
BioFUE: A Pain-Free Technique which gives good results as compared to the traditional FUE procedure. Manual Extraction Machine | 0.8 to 1 mm Punch | Preservation Agent – NS/RL | Counting Method – Follicle wise
D’FITM: Advanced than traditional FUE. The ZERO Pain technique ensures BETTER Result growth than FUE Hi-tech Extraction Machine | 0.6 to 0.8 mm Punch | Preservation Agent – HR3Mat. | Counting Method – Follicle wise
D’FI+TM: The Best so far. Designed for BEST result standard & highest density. Go Natural hairline & BEST results. Hi-tech Smart Extraction Machine with Loupes | 0.6 to 0.8 mm Punch | Preservation Agent – PRP+Blend | Counting Method – Follicle wise
This is a tough decision but a very rationale one.
The biggest limitation of Hair Transplant is the limited or non-availability of Donor Area.
Every human is born with approximately 100, 000 hair. The area which is prone to hair loss (Top of the head) has 50, 000 to 60, 000 hair. If a person has lost even 40% to 100% hair on top of his scalp that means minimum of 20, 000 to 50, 000 hair. Hair Transplant can only give you 6000 to 12000 hair back!!!
The Biggest question is that where do the remaining 12, 000 to 38, 000 hair come from ??!!
How will you get that back?
Can 6,000 hair compensate the actual requirement of 15, 000 or 50, 000 hair?!!
How would you style your hair with 6000 hair when the requirement is of 40, 000 to 50, 000 hair?
This is where the Non-Surgical Replacement comes to your help.
