The DHI Hair Implant Method is an evolved form of FUE. However, the DHI technique differs from all the others in that the entire hair transplant process is carried out manually by an expert doctor from the removal of each follicle to the implantation of each of these grafts.
Performed by hand, using a high-precision CHOI injector, this method allows the practitioner to control the depth, angle and direction of implantation step by step for each hair follicle. This hair transplant technique is therefore performed without any incision, on the donor part as on the recipient which leaves no scar and produces a perfectly natural and dense result.
It is better to choose the DHI technique because it is gentle on the scalp and follicles. No incisions or slits prior to the scalpel used on the recipient area.This technique is the most recent practiced by surgeons. It is absolutely painless due to the fact that it is accompanied by anesthesia.
The DHI method offers better preservation of the hair over the years. It is done by taking into account the prognoses on aging. Indeed, the genetic component makes it possible to visualize the progression of hair loss and to define the number of grafts to be implanted. It also allows us to implant the grafts without shaving the hair completely, especially for womens.
The advantages of the DHI technique:
Before any intervention, you must answer a medical questionnaire specifying whether you have diabetes, high blood pressure as well as any medication, consumption of psychotropic drugs or cardio-trope treatment. 3 days before the procedure, it is important to avoid aspirin. 48 hours before the procedure, stop consuming alcohol or coffee and reduce your tobacco consumption.
During the 15 days after the operation, it is preferable to avoid exposure to the sun of the scalp as well as intense efforts. Medication provided by the clinic should be taken regularly.
There are no real complications but the patient may feel weak, have a headache or have a slight burning or itching sensation. Local anesthesia can sometimes cause swelling without pain or danger (edema). Only 10% of patients experience this inconvenience and it gradually and naturally subsides after 3 or 4 days. Very occasionally, small red spots appear on the recipient area.This is an irritation to be treated with a medicinal shampoo.
Transplanted hair never falls out. It stays for life
The grafts taken from the donor area never grow back. That is why for each 5 grafts we take 2 and leave 3 to hide but the removal is done in a homogeneous way so that it is not visible.
The hair transplant is feasible for patients who have chronic illnesses too, except that the rate of the hair that does not hold can be higher.
There is no specific age for the hair transplant. As long as the patient's health situation allows the transplant is feasible.
The hair transplant generally can be done around twenty but it depends on the individual patient's fall as well as the genetic factor. If the patient loses their hair completely before that ages the transplant is feasible.
There are several bills that can be the cause of hair loss, but the main cause is the genetic factor. There is also the stress, the lack of vitamins and the patient's eating habits.
The hair transplant is possible on scars and burns as well as the rate of hair that does not hold can be higher.
The transplant is feasible for women without shaving their hair completely for using the DHI technique. But you should also know the causes of hair loss before the operation.
