The best way to determine if you’re a candidate for hair restoration is to schedule a consultation with an expert at Eternal Hair and Esthetics.
The most common type of hair loss that can be treated with hair restoration is androgenic alopecia. This condition is most common in men and is often referred to as “male pattern baldness,” however women may also experience androgenic alopecia, and it’s easily treatable for everyone.
You may be a candidate for a hair transplant if you have experienced any of the following:
During your consultation, the experienced professionals at Eternal Hair and Esthetics will conduct a thorough dermatological examination of your scalp as well as diagnostic tests to assess the quality and density of potential donor hair sites.
Direct follicle implant (DFI) is a hair restoration technique in which individual hair follicles are extracted from a donor area of the head and implanted one at a time into the area that has been affected by hair loss. The back of the head, which typically has the healthiest follicles that are genetically resistant to hair loss, is the most common donor area.
The team of specialists at Eternal Hair and Esthetics have undergone rigorous training in internationally accredited DFI hair restoration protocols. The team uses an advanced tool that was designed for exclusive use by Eternal Hair and Esthetics to extract and implant each individual follicle.
The high success rate for hair transplants at Eternal Hair and Esthetics are based on three factors:
Your donor hair follicles are extracted individually, according to strict DFI guidelines. The exclusive tool allows for a maximum amount of healthy follicles to be retrieved.
Your donor hair follicles are kept at an optimal temperature in a hypo-thermosol solution for a short amount of time so they won’t break down before implantation.
The exclusive tool allows your specialist to control the direction, depth, and angle of every single implant. Because the tool has a diameter of less than 1mm, no incisions are required to receive the transplant follicle.
You may have heard of follicular unit extraction (FUE), and/or follicular unit transplant (FUT or FUT-strip). These techniques require surgical incisions during the implantation process and in some cases also during the extraction process. In contrast, DFI requires no incisions at all, and the precision of the implant tool allows your specialist to have maximum control for the most natural-looking results available in the hair restoration industry.
If you’re a candidate for hair transplantation, you’ll be given instructions so you’ll know how to prepare for your procedure.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll recline in a special chair designed for hair transplant procedures, and your specialist will carefully extract the right amount of healthy follicles from the donor area.
When the extraction is complete, you’ll take a break, and then your specialist will begin the process of implanting the donor follicles into the recipient area. They’ll finish by placing gauze around your implants, and provide you with instructions about how to care for your implants at home.
After transplantation, your new hair will gradually grow out in 8-12 months. You might notice that some transplanted hair falls out somewhere between 2-6 weeks after your procedure; this is normal and doesn’t indicate that your transplant wasn’t successful. Optimal results are usually seen between 12-18 months following your transplantation.
