People have been searching for hair loss remedies for centuries. Topical applications, shampoo, conditioners and stimulation all have some degree of success but none of them have been shown to result in a natural full head of hair.
Those who are looking for a better solution to baldness can be more assured of the results with Hair Transplantation. This is a proven procedure that has performed since the late 1950's with techniques being perfected since that time.
Transplantation is a surgical procedure that removes hair from the back and sides of the head, (where the patient has plenty of hair) and transplants it to the balding or thinning areas. The "donor" area is anesthetized and a strip of scalp tissue about one-half to one inch wide and four or five inches long is removed. The donor area is sutured together and heals leaving only a thin line that is covered by the hair from surrounding areas that grows over it.
That strip that has been removed is divided into many grafts, some containing as few as one or two hairs. These grafts are implanted into the balding area and are accepted and fed by the body. You may know that the chemical DHT causes hair loss in many men and some women. DHT occurs naturally in the body. Amazingly the grafted hairs are not susceptible to DHT and will grow for a lifetime requiring no further special care.
