Our hair grows for a certain period of time and sheds, but they  are replaced by hair follicles. Although there are interpersonal variations,  80 to 120 hair strands may shed every day and it is a result of the ordinary  life cycle of body hairs. Each hair strand progresses through growth, resting  and shedding phases.

Introduction to Hairloss

Hair loss, a concern affecting millions worldwide, is a  condition that transcends age, gender, and ethnicity. It’s not just a  cosmetic issue but can significantly impact an individual’s psychological  well-being and quality of life. Hair loss is considered, when hair gets thin,  more than usual hair sheds while combing and bathing, and when the front  hairline recesses.Understanding hair loss is the first step towards effective  management and treatment.

Common Causes and Types of Hair Loss

Numerous factors play a role in hair loss, including but not  limited to genetic predisposition, exposure to chemicals, drugs,  psychological stress, skin diseases, systemic diseases, hormonal disorders,  surgical procedures, improper hair care and insufficient nutrition. One or  more than one of these factors may be responsible for the hair loss, although  it is possible to fail identifying an underlying cause.

Moreover, hair loss can be reversible or irreversible. For  irreversible cases, growth of hair may sustain after the underlying cause  (e.g. stress) is eliminated.The type of hair loss is also important. Male  type (androgenetic) hair loss is the most common type of the hair loss in men  and women. This type of hair loss is a result of genetic and hormonal  factors, while trauma, medications and diseases has no role. This type of  hair loss is very rare in women.

Another type of hair loss is the development of patchy bald  areas on the scalp. An abnormality of immune system is accused in this  disorder, called "alopecia areata" in medical terminology. It may  be irreversible, but it is also possible for hair to grow again.The other  type of hair loss is generalized hair loss. This condition is caused by a  factor that damages the hair follicles throughout the body (for example,  drug, stress, thyroid gland diseases and other hormonal disorders and  insufficient nutrition as well as major surgeries).

Diagnosing Hair Loss

Proper diagnosis is a critical step in the effective treatment  of hair loss. Understanding the underlying cause of hair loss is essential  for determining the most appropriate treatment plan.

Here are some key aspects of the diagnostic process:

Medical History: This involves  discussing your health history, including any major illnesses, surgeries, and  the medications you’re taking. Your doctor will also ask about your diet,  hair care routine, and whether you’ve had a recent illness or high levels of  stress.    

Physical Examination: The doctor will  examine your scalp to determine the pattern and extent of hair loss. This  helps in identifying the type of hair loss – whether it’s thinning, patchy,  or involves other scalp conditions.  

Hair Pull Test: A simple and effective  test where several dozen hairs are gently pulled to see how many come out.  This helps determine the stage of the shedding process.This involves  discussing your health history, including any major illnesses, surgeries, and  the medications you’re taking. Your doctor will also ask about your diet,  hair care routine, and whether you’ve had a recent illness or high levels of  stress.    

Scalp Biopsy: In some cases, a scalp biopsy may be necessary to determine if the hair loss is caused by an infection or other underlying condition. A small section of the scalp skin is removed and examined under a microscope.

Blood Tests: These can help uncover medical conditions related to hair loss, such as thyroid disease, iron deficiency, or hormonal imbalances.

Hair Loss Treatments

Medicine Treatments

In the realm of medical interventions for hair loss, there are  several international approved and widely prescribed treatments. These  treatments work by targeting different aspects of the hair growth cycle,  aiming to either slow down hair loss or stimulate new growth. While some are  topical solutions applied directly to the scalp, others are oral medications.    

It’s important to understand that results can vary, and these  treatments often require ongoing use to maintain their effects. Potential  side effects are also a consideration, and it’s crucial to discuss these with  a healthcare provider to make an informed decision.

Hair Loss Treatments
Natural and Alternative Remedies

Moving away from conventional medicine, there’s a growing  interest in natural and alternative remedies for hair loss. This includes the  use of herbal supplements, essential oils, and other natural products. While  some individuals report positive results, it’s important to approach these  remedies with a degree of caution. 

The efficacy of such treatments can vary, and they are not  typically regulated with the same rigor as conventional medicines.  Integrating these natural remedies with traditional treatments can be an  option, but it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before  doing so to avoid any potential interactions or side effects.

Hair Transplant Surgery and Other Procedural Options

For  those seeking more permanent solutions, hair transplant surgery and other  procedural options are available.    

Hair transplant techniques, such as Follicular Unit  Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), involve  the relocation of hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another. These  procedures have evolved significantly, offering more natural-looking results  than ever before. You can check out our hair transplant in Turkey before  and after page for real case solutions.

Hair loss can be a stressful experience for anyone, regardless  of age and gender; however, it is especially common among men. This is why  hair transplants are considered one of the most life-changing treatments in  cosmetic surgery for people who are losing or have lost their hair due to  pattern hair loss or other reasons.    

Hair transplant operations have always been popular among  celebrities, and stories of celebrity hair transplant treatments, such as  that of Elon Musk or Wayne Rooney, have been featured in the daily news.  

Thanks to several developments in medical technologies used in the field in  recent years, hair transplants have quickly become a popular solution for  many people, as it is now more accessible than ever with quick recovery times  and a less painful process than before.    

There are essentially three different procedures in the  advancing field of hair transplant surgery; however, at its core, hair  transplantation can be defined as transferring healthy hair follicles from  certain parts of the head to the parts that have thin or no hair. Being a  permanent solution, this treatment has a relatively quick and easy recovery, although the recovery time may vary according to the method used. For those  that feel psychologically affected by hair loss, there should be no reason  not to get medical treatment at Our Hair Transplant Centers, where we use  cutting-edge technology to remove the negative effects of hair loss.

Steps of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplant

Extraction of Hair Follicles

In the FUE method, hair follicles are collected one by one with micro tips in sizes varying between 0.7 and 1.0 mm, depending on the hair length and follicle number. The high standards followed in the hair follicle extraction minimize the damage to the donor area and increase the patient comfort during the process.

Opening Channels

Compared to the metal slits in the conventional FUE method, channels opened with sapphire tips are a lot smaller and thus heal a lot faster. With sapphire tips, or classic metal slits, the direction of the hairs to be transplanted is determined during the channel opening step. In this step, sensitivity about the angle of the channels to be opened in the skin is one of the most important factors to get a natural outcome in the transplanted area.

A number of tips are enough for each patient depending on the width thickness of the hair follicles. Still, it is very important that each tip is only used for one patient alone.

Implantation of the Hairs

In the implantation step, the hairs are placed in the correctly directed channels with a 40-45 degree angle.

Of course, in addition to the quality of the medical materials used and the health standards of the clinic, the most important factor in every step of hair transplantation is the experience of the staff that is doing the transplant.

To get more information about “Sapphire Tip FUE Technique” which has been successfully performed in the our  Clinics with natural and aesthetically pleasing results, you can get in connection with us here.

The Advantages of FUE Performed with Sapphire Blades in Comparison With Steel Blades:

Because of its qualities such as smooth surface with antibacterial properties, hardness, sharpness and durability, while opening micro channels, vibrations with sapphire tips will be minimal.

This way, both the trauma and tissue damage to the area is minimized.

In comparison with metal slits; FUE performed with sapphire tips enables more dense transplantation, which makes it possible for individuals with advanced hair loss to undergo a hair transplant procedure.

In addition to allowing a denser graft transplantation for volume, it helps to achieve a more natural outcome.

In comparison with metal slits, sapphire tips inject less fluids under the skin to open channels. As a result, fluid retention experienced after the surgery will be reduced, making the post-operative phase more comfortable for the patients.

As channels created for the transplan are smaller, tissue recovery will be faster in comparison to using metal slits, most importantly the skin will bond with a smooth surface.

A Complete Pain FREE Method in Hair Transplantation!

Thanks to the use of sedation given under the direct supervision of our anesthesiologist, you feel almost no pain even during the administration of local anesthesia prior to the hair transplant procedure.

This way, you will be having a more comfortable and pain-free hair transplant experience.

Even though hair transplants are generally considered as painless procedures, this new method will help our patients who suffer from Trypanophobia (needle phobia), to feel at ease, allowing them to relax during the procedure. This method helps to completely eliminate the already minimal amount of pain involved with the procedure.

What is Sedation?

Sedation is a state of sleep under controlled sedative drug administration without loss of any reflexes, calibrated specifically to the patients needs. The depth of the sedation can be adjusted accordingly.

Do I Have to Receive Sedation?

Safe even for use on younger children, sedation allows for a almost zero discomfort hair transplant. We still offer hair transplant without sedation as an option for patients who prefer not to get sedated at Our Clinics.

DHI Hair Transplant

DHI hair transplant or direct hair implantation is an advanced, non-invasive technique for addressing hair loss. In this method, hair follicles are carefully extracted one by one, and implanted into the balding areas of the scalp using a choi pen.

This article centers on the DHI hair transplant procedure, explaining its outstanding increase in popularity. The biggest change is that it does not leave a big scar on the back of your scalp yet the appeal of DHI goes beyond this single factor!


Here are the key points you will read in this article:


DHI can be considered an updated version of FUE hair transplant.

The invention of the choi implanter pen has made this minimally invasive procedure possible.

DHI is painless with high succes rate of more than 95 %.

DHI hair transplant is more expensive but it is a preferable method of hair transplantation for patients.

DHI does not affect the native hair and the results are natural looking.

What To Know About DHI Hair Transplantation?

Direct hair implantation, also known as DHI, is one of the least invasive procedures of hair transplantation to this date.

To place the harvested hair follicles in the desired part of the scalp, a special device called the implanter pen is used to place the hair grafts in the bald areas of the scalp. This implanter combines the two stages of extraction of hair follicles and implantation of hair follicles. This is why DHI hair transplant is considered a two-step transplant, unlike the other techniques that have three steps. 

What Is A Choi Implanter Pen? How It's Done?

This is a pen-like tool that can make precise incisions for the insertion of the harvested hair follicles. The specialized pen-shaped tool has blades about 0.5-0.8mm. This will allow for a more precise cut which will make the transplantation almost painless and avoid excessive bleeding. 

Hair transplant procedures in Turkey

With its easily accessible geographical location, gorgeous historical places and landscapes, and vast array of options for accommodation, from luxurious to budget-friendly places, Turkey is already a big player that has proven its leading status in tourism and health tourism. Because Turkey hosts advanced medical centers and experts in hair transplantation, it has become one of the most popular choices for hair transplant surgeries over the years. Because the cost of a hair transplant in Turkey is much lower than in the UK, US, and Europe, hair transplant options in Turkey have gained popularity.

DHI Hair Transplant Procedure

DHI transplant involves shaving the donor area but not the recipient area. It is therefore considered a hair transplant without shaving. Well in most cases. There could be situations that require shaving and your doctor would let you know beforehand.

The surgical team will administrate anesthesia in the frontal and occipital parts of your scalp. As soon as the donor and the recipient sites are completely numb, harvesting the individual hair grafts begins. This happens while you are lying on your stomach.

The direct hair implantation technique in this surgery has two main steps:

1. Hair follicles are extracted with a tweezer.

2. Using a blunt punch to make 0.6 - 0.9 mm incision with a depth of 2.5 - 3 mm.

Now, it is time for the hair transplantation process. Hence, the extracted hair grafts only spend about 5 to 20 minutes out of the body.

As a result, the process is significantly sped up and helps with the success rate of your hair transplant surgery.

The harvested bulbs will be placed in a Choi pen with a hollow needle measuring approximately 0.5-1.5mm.

With this specialized tool, the bulbs will be inserted into your scalp through clean and microscopic cuts without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.


Who Should Get A DHI Hair Transplant?

DHI implantation procedure can work for almost any type of hair loss. You would still need to have your initial consultation to have a better understanding of your hair loss pattern and what the best next step is.


DHI is an effective treatment for people who:


Dont't want to shave.

Are getting a second hair transplant.

Have moderate to mild baldness.

Have sensitive skin.

Want very dense grafts.

Are suffering from hair thinning.


Does My Hair Type Suit the DHI/Choi Method?

When the special implanter pen, the Choi pen was first invented, it was incompatible with every hair type.

Thanks to the latest technology and scientific improvements, the Choi needle tips are now presented in sizes and widths ranging from 0.64 mm to 1.0mm. This results in a safer procedure for all patients with different hair types and characteristics.


To understand if DHI is the best option for your specific hair type, you should consult with your doctor. They consider every single detail while deciding on the appropriate hair restoration for each individual.


Why Is It Better With Thinning Or Indigenous Hair?

DHI hair transplant works in a more specific and concentrated way. Therefore DHI can be used to focus on the thinning areas. With the precision it brings to the implantation procedure, it will also have a better outcome as well. For example, natural hairline design is only one part of the elevated patient experience.

Because of the precision that the Choi pen brings to the hair transplant game, it is less likely to affect indigenous hair or preexisting hair. Your doctor can easily implant the hair follicle where it needs to be without damaging it.


Pros & Cons Of DHI Method Hair Transplant

As for any hair transplantation procedure, the DHI method also has its own benefits and some downsides as well. You can see the advantages and disadvantages of the DHI hair transplant technique here:



ADVANTAGES OF DHI                                                    DISADVANTAGES OF DHI

-MINIMAL SCARRING                                                  -HIGHER PROCEDURE COST

-QUICKER RECOVERY TIME                                       -LIMITED NUMBER OF GRAFTS IN ONE SESSION

-NATURAL LOOKING RESULTS                                  -HARD TO FIND A SKILLED MEDICAL TEAM

-HIGHER GRAFT SURVIVAL

-LESS BLEEDING

-LOW CHANCE OF INFECTION

What To Expect: Recovery And Results

What you can expect from a DHI hair transplantation method regarding your recovery and the appealing outcomes.

DHI hair transplant has a 95% – 98% rate of success.

Let’s see what happens after a DHI transplantation step by step:

During the first week:

After your procedure, you will come to the clinic to have your bandages changed. First, your head will be washed with a special shampoo. Scabs will be removed to help with the healing process.

During the second week:

Your transplanted hair is stronger, but still, you have to be gentle with it. Avoid scratching your head, and if you see any hair fall, there is no need to worry. This is part of the healing process and will continue to happen up to 2 to 3 months after your procedure.



Almost a month after:

You will experience shock hair loss. This is a normal part of your healing process, and there is no need to worry. After the hair shedding you will start to see hair growth.

From the sixth month to the twelfth month:

You will start to see the results and if your hair implants have been successful. The final results will be visible in almost 18 months.

These are the quick steps to have an idea of your recovery part. Don’t worry, your doctor will instruct you on how to take care of your newly transplanted hair.

Does DHI Heal Faster?

Compared to other hair transplant methods, DHI has a quicker recovery time. This is because of the smaller incisions that are made on the scalp.


What is the hair transplant?

Our experienced and specialized medical staff can provide the perfect solution for hair transplant treatments in an environment that provides the utmost care for the health and well-being of our patients.

How Long Does It Take To See Results From a DHI Hair Transplant?

You will see the initial results of your DHI hair transplantation after 6 to 12 months. However, the outcome of your hair implantation surgery will be noticeable after 12 to 18 months.

Does A DHI Hair Transplant Leave Any Visible Scars?

No, it doesn’t. Fortunately, the pen-like instrument, the Choi pen, only makes incisions as big as 0.6mm to 0.9mm in diameter. So these scars would be barely visible. Advanced DHI techniques reduce the chance of complications. 

Hair Growth After Transplantation

The transplanted hair follicles grow a little and then fall off in their lifecycle first; over six months after the hair transplantation in Istanbul, hair begins to grow thick and dense in the area with higher concentrations and density. The comparison before and after male hair transplant after 7 days will be prominent post the initial healing phase. Busy workers can return to their offices within two days after the procedure to continue their life as usual; in the case of Hair transplantation in Turkey, they continue to tour and enjoy the rest of their vacation with family. After two to three months, the transplanted hair ultimately falls away from the site, and new and thicker hair begins to take its place. This hair is typically hair fall resistant and grows as normal hair does.

Results

Hair will grow, but it will shed quickly after the hair transplant. You can see growth of hair by transferred hair follicles approximately two months later. Your hair will normally grow and the baldness will be completely eliminated approximately 6 months to one year later.

Protein: Hair is primarily made of protein, making adequate protein intake crucial. Include lean meats, fish, soy, eggs, and dairy products in your diet.

Iron: Iron deficiency is a common cause of hair loss, especially in women. Good sources of iron include red meat, spinach, lentils, and fortified cereals.

Vitamins A and C: These vitamins aid in the production of sebum, the oily substance that moisturizes the scalp. Carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, and kale are rich in Vitamin A, while citrus fruits, strawberries, and bell peppers are excellent sources of Vitamin C.

Hair Care Tips to Prevent Further Hair Loss

In addition to a nutritious diet, proper hair care is vital in preventing further hair loss:

Gentle Styling: Avoid tight hairstyles that pull on the hair like tight ponytails, braids, or buns. Use a wide-toothed comb to prevent pulling and breaking of hair.

Avoid Harsh Treatments: Minimize the use of hot styling tools and harsh chemical treatments like perms and bleaching.

Scalp Massage: Regularly massaging the scalp can stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting growth. Use gentle, circular motions with your fingertips.

Use Mild Hair Care Products: Choose shampoos and conditioners that are suitable for your hair type. Avoid products with harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens.

Reduce Stress: Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss. Engage in stress-reducing activities like yoga, meditation, or regular exercise.

Avoid Smoking: Smoking can accelerate hair loss by reducing blood flow to the scalp.

Stay Hydrated: Adequate hydration is key to maintaining healthy hair. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

By incorporating these dietary and hair care practices into your daily routine, you can help maintain the health of your hair and potentially reduce the rate of hair loss.

Taboos such as not a man without a beard and a man with a beard have a great impact on men’s approach to beards. For this reason, men resort to the beard transplant method.

What Is The Beard Transplant Procedure Stages?

It begins with the consultation and continues with the actual operation day, which consists of anesthesia, graft harvesting, and implantation. Let’s look at these phases chronically.


Consultation

After finding out what is the reason for your hair loss, your doctor will plan out the process according to your needs. You will discuss your medical history and any special requests regarding the operation. The consultation part usually happens before the surgery day.


Anesthesia

You will get local anesthesia before starting the surgery. It must be applied carefully since the facial muscles are highly vascular. You might feel a strange sensation and sting during this process but after its effect, the whole procedure will go smoothly and you won’t feel any pain.

Graft Harvesting

The hair grafts will be collected from the donor area to be prepared. The doctor will get the exact calculated graft number. These hair grafts get split and are kept in an optimal space.

Implantation

The doctor will open up where the hairs will go in the recipient area. He will be using a special punch-like device to make the holes. The prepared grafts get implanted into their new places.

Which Techniques Are Used for Beard Implantation?

For a beard transplantation, the FUE and the DHI methods are usually the choice. In recent years, the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique has become the number one choice due to its newer technology use.

In the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation), thanks to the use of a medical instrument called an “implanter”, the follicles are placed one by one directly into the treatment area, without the need to open micro-channels so as with the FUE method.

Where Do They Get the Hair for a Beard Transplant?

The donor area for a beard transplant is usually the back of the head(the nape area). Just like a scalp hair transplant, hair grafts are taken from the lower back of the head where the androgen-resistant hairs exist.

Can I Transplant Hairs from My Neck Beard to My Mustache?

If the doctor examines the neck area and finds it eligible as a donor site, the part can be used for the operation. You can get further information from your clinic.

How Many Grafts Are Needed for a Beard Transplant?

It depends on the area. If the beard needs to be reconstructed with hair and needs much more help, the graft number can go up to 3000 on average. If the area just needs a boost and further density, the graft number is a lot lower.

In your case, after the consultation and examination with your doctor, the graft number will be calculated for the desired look.

How Much Area Will 1000 Graphs Cover In A Beard Transplant?

The best 1000 beard grafts can give you is a full goatee. To achieve a full beard appearance you need an average of 2000-3000 grafts. The number of grafts required for each person varies based on several factors:

The table below shows the average number of grafts needed for each beard region:


THE AREA                                                      NUMBER OF GRAFTS

Full goatee                                                     600-1100 

Mustache                                                       350-500

Sideburn                                                         200-300 Grafts/side

Cheek beard                                                  500- 1000 Grafts/side

Full beard transplantation                             2000-3000


Usually, one session is enough to achieve the appearance you have always wanted. During the pre-operation consultation, your doctor will tell you about the number of grafts for your facial hair restoration.
If someone wishes to have a thicker beard with more density they can think about having a second session. Discuss this concern with your doctor and ask for their opinion.

Eyebrow and Women

Women have been caring for their eyebrows for thousands of years. According to research, the shapes of the eyebrows define who we are to the person in front of us. They play a significant role in the reflection of our emotions in our daily life.

Nowadays, since the appearance is more important than any other period in human history, with the wide use of social media, many women spend a lot of effort and time to make their eyebrows look the way they want.

There can be approximately 1200 hair follicles in unplucked and uhnshaped eyebrows. This number can decrease to around 200 for the eyebrows that are shaped continuously. In addition to aesthetic concerns, unfortunately, some diseases, medication treatments, and wrong makeup applications can cause eyebrows to be diluted and deformed.

Having impressive and perfect looks is of great importance for both women and men today. In the last decade, micro FUE eyebrow transplantation has become one of the most aesthetic operations performed for men, especially women.

This number can decrease to around 200 for the eyebrows that are shaped continuously. In addition to aesthetic concerns, unfortunately, some diseases, medication treatments, and wrong makeup applications can cause eyebrows to be diluted and deformed. Having impressive and perfect looks is of great importance for both women and men today. In the last decade, micro FUE eyebrow transplantation has become one of the most aesthetic operations performed for men, especially women.

What is Eyebrow Transplantation?


Giving a beautiful appearance to the eyebrows of which density decreases over time or shaping them in a more attractive way than they are, has been available to some extent that the cosmetics industry allows.

Eyebrow transplantation has become the new trend in giving the desired appearance to the eyebrows, with the micro FUE method’s rapid development in the last ten years.



This trend has been on the rise in recent years, thanks to some famous stars like Meagan Good, who had micro FUE eyebrow transplantation and shared it with the public through social media. Eyebrow transplantation has become one of the most demanding procedures in the field of medical aesthetics.

Eyebrow transplantation is performed under local anaesthesia. Although people may experience some pain according to their pain thresholds while applying local anaesthesia, this pain is minimal. The eyebrow transplantation procedure is entirely painless after the local anaesthesia application. In eyebrow transplantation, thin grafts taken from the back of the ears using the micro FUE technique are transferred to the eyebrows.

Eyebrow transplantation is easy and takes a few hours. It is ensured that the person has the aesthetic looking eyebrows that they have always wanted. It provides a much more natural and beautiful appearance than the tattoo method used by some people who have problems with their eyebrows. If the correct care is applied, it is a permanent solution.


Who is Eligible for Eyebrow Transplantation?


Those who are unsatisfied with their eyebrows’ appearance, whose eyebrows are sparse: Eyebrow shape and rarity is generally a genetic factor, but it may also have occurred due to applications like incorrect eyebrow removal procedures. Eyebrow transplantation will be a permanent solution for our patients who complain about this problem.

People with eyebrow loss problems: some diseases, medication treatments, and wrong makeup applications cause eyebrows to fall off. The patient will be permanently relieved of this problem, with the eyebrow transplant operation will take 2-3 hours.

Those who lost their eyebrows due to accidents and injuries: Due to accidents and damages caused by these accidents, permanent defects in the eyebrows’ appearance may occur. Eyebrow transplantation is the most natural way to solve this problem. Thanks to eyebrow transplantation, lost eyebrows are restored, while scars formed in the eyebrow area can be covered.


How is the eyebrow transplant performed?


When finalizing this decision by those who wish to undergo eyebrow transplantation, preparatory work is done for the new position of the eyebrows. Eyebrow transplantation, which is done according to the wishes of the person, is done in a way that makes him happy. The person’s expectations, such as the desire to have thick eyebrows and thin eyebrows like spring, are met. When the preliminary preparations are completed, the numbing of the eyebrow area is carried out with local anesthetic drugs. Then the micro channels start to be opened with the side slit according to the planning in the eyebrow area.
Hair follicles collected from the nape area are stitched one by one into the open channels. This area is suitable for the structure of the hair follicles in the structure of the eyebrows. Therefore, this area is the first choice for hair follicles. When removing hair roots, tools with a thickness of 0.6-0.7 mm are used. The most important point here is that the removed hair follicles are planted in the open channels of the eyebrow area without waiting. If the hair follicles are collected and kept waiting, there is a risk of losing their functions, that is, of dying. Therefore, a specialist in this field should perform an eyebrow transplant. Since very fine-tipped tools are used during hair follicle extraction and transplantation, there is no visible scar after eyebrow transplantation.

Is the Eyebrow transplant a permanent application?


There is no loss of transplanted hair follicles after eyebrow transplantation. The hair follicles in the nape region are not genetically lost anyway. This process can only be redone at the will of the person. Once the new eyebrow shape has found its shape within a year, the person may wish to have a slightly more intense eyebrow. But that shouldn’t be overstated either. The shape of the eyebrows should be adapted to the density of the hair on the person’s face. It should also be considered that the skin cannot lift excess hair follicles.

Who receives an eyebrow transplant?


Women show great interest in eyebrow transplantation. Women pay more attention to visual beauty. They know how important eyebrows are in facial beauty. For this reason, for the sparse eyebrows, for the thick eyebrows which are effective in society, those who have open areas on the eyebrows due to illnesses and injuries want to have an eyebrow transplant. In addition, those who want to give their eyebrows the shape they want permanently are among those who want to have their eyebrows transplanted


Is eyebrow transplantation an application that leaves scars ?

There are two techniques that can be used in eyebrow transplantation. These are the methods used in hair transplantation. There is a difference between FUT and FUE methods only in the removal of hair follicles. However, even this difference has a positive effect on patients.

Because the FUE technique, which is usually used for eyebrow transplantation, is not incised. Therefore, eyebrow transplantation in patients is not an application that leaves scars. The hair roots are taken one by one without incision and planted in the eyebrow area. There is no scarring problem where the hair roots are taken or where they are planted. In the first stage, traces in the form of white dots lose their effect in a short time.

How is eyebrow transplantation done, is there pain?

Eyebrow transplantation, which involves transplanting hair follicles taken from the neck to the eyebrow area, has become a very popular practice in recent years. With personalized planning, hair follicles should be planted at appropriate angles and in a direction that will accommodate the eyebrows. People who will undergo an eyebrow transplant will first receive local anesthesia. Since the FUE technique is also used during seeding, no incision is made in any area. Eyebrow transplantation is performed painlessly.


Understanding Female Hair Loss

Hair loss in women is one of the situations many women face at some point. Hair loss can occur due to various reasons.Today, since social media is essential, unfortunately, the emotional and psychological destruction of hair loss in women is more severe than in men because there is a belief that women who are accepted by society will have thick and beautiful hair lifelong.


The Journey at a Glance

Type of hair loss in women typically manifests as overall thinning hair across the scalp, differing from the distinct pattern often seen in men. It can stem from a variety of causes such as hormonal imbalances, genetic predisposition, underlying medical conditions, nutritional deficiencies, high stress levels, and harsh hair care practices.Recognizing these factors is essential for determining the most effective treatment approach for each individual case.

Women’s hair transplant requires a complete understanding of hair loss patterns of women, experience in no/partial shaving methods, and an artistic keen eye on natural feminine hairline design.Hair transplant for women is an aesthetic surgery to manage hair loss permanently, especially at the hairline, temples, and mid-scalp. The main purpose is to give a fuller head of hair while protecting feminine features. The procedure gives promising results as long as enough donor hair is collected.

That is why women do not accept hair loss or baldness during their lives. Hair loss, which directly affects the person’s social life and psychology, can be treated with various applications, and it may be possible to eliminate this problem by FUE hair transplantation on permanent hair loss.


Reasons of Hair Loss in Women

Hormonal Changes Genetic Factors Medical Conditions Nutritional Deficiencies Stress and Lifestyle Hair Care Practices Irregular diet and excessive weight loss  

Diagnosis of Hair Loss in Women 


Hair loss in women is not in the form of a backward opening of the hairline like in men. It is generally seen as sparseness in the top area. The chart above demonstrates the grades of hair loss in Ludwig Classification.


It is much more difficult to prevent hair loss in women and to ensure that the person can have healthy hair again. Thus, understanding the factors that cause spillage is the most crucial step. At this point, various blood tests are performed, and the patient’s blood values are examined comprehensively. Tests are made to diagnose diseases that may cause hair loss. The onset date and the progression process are vital at the diagnosis stage.

During the diagnosis process, the doctor can perform a hair pull test. This test is a simple test conducted by the doctor holding the hair near the base of the hair and pulling it down the hair shaft. Trials examining the scalp, such as microscopic methods for analyzing hair follicles, scalp biopsy, and phototrichogram, can also be applied during the diagnosis phase.


Treatment Methods of Hair Loss in Women  


In women, it is essential to diagnose hair loss at the right time and to initiate treatment before proceeding to advanced stages. All the factors that cause hair loss in women are considered during the planning process of the treatment. Medical treatment can be applied to patients and surgical intervention with the FUE hair transplantation method.
Medical treatments in female hair loss are mostly performed through medications containing finasteride for the repair of hair follicles. Although some patients stated that these medications cause side effects such as dry skin and lack of sexual desire, there were no significant differences in the placebo and control groups in the studies on these side effects. Briefly, the stories on the internet do not reflect the truth.

Laser treatment for female hair loss is another method used. This treatment, which is applied by irradiating the hair follicles, may effectively strengthen the hair follicles, but it is not the definitive solution.

Mesotherapy in female hair loss is a treatment method injected under the skin to feed the capillaries in the hair follicles with a mixture containing rich vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. The achievement drive in this treatment is very high.

FUE hair transplantation is an effective treatment method for male patients with hair loss problems and women struggling with the same problem.
