Basically, induced follicle hair transplant provides the microenvironment which a hair graft needs. iFi method fastens the growth process and shortens the period to see the result.
• Longer healing period
• First progress after 6-9 months
• Results after 12-24 months
• Combined with treatments with side effects such as minoxidil, finasteride or painfull processes like PRP or IPRF
• No positive effect on the existing hair
• Fastest healing (high efficiency)
• First progress after 3-6 months
• Results after 6-9 months
• Combined with bio intelligence solutions
• Improves the existing hair with the bio intelligence solutions.
Depending on the graft number, patient’s skin condition and operation technique, the procedure takes between 6-8 hours.
This is decided by the analysis of the hair, including hair density, hair follicles quality, skin elasticity, pores, and skin texture. However, not all patients are appropriate candidates for hair transplants who have serious health complications. After considering all factors your doctor will decide on your compatibility.
Hair transplant is done under local anesthesia. The patient does not feel pain or discomfort during the procedure. If requested, there is an advanced needle-free injection system which makes the hair transplant operation painless.
Despite the common misconception, hair transplants aren’t only for men.
Women typically have mild to moderate hair loss in a noticeable pattern, an intact hairline, and enough donor hair in the back of the head. Therefore, most women are good candidates for the procedure.
Generally, a hair transplant will last for a lifetime. Since the follicles were moved from the donor area of the scalp, they will adapt and blend in with the existing hair in time.
However, a patient’s hair type, lifestyle, age, and degree of hair loss are a few examples of variables that may have an impact on how long a hair transplant lasts.
Technically anyone between the ages of 22 and 65 can have a hair transplant.
However, depending on the type of hair, the degree of hair loss, and general health, not everyone in this age range is a candidate for a hair transplant.
Although it is already possible to perform hair transplant with only donor area shaving, today, it is also possible to get a hair transplant without shaving/cutting any part of the hair.
It is not possible to transplant hair grafts from one person to another. Each hair follicle functions as an organ which has the potential to be incompatible in another person’s body. Even if the recipient is a sibling, parent, mother, or someone else with compatible tissues, hair obtained from one person cannot be transplanted to another.
Basically, the answer depends on the patient’s individual concerns and requirements. The final graft number for a hair transplant will be determined after a live consultation in the clinic, by checking patient’s donor area and hair quality.
London Regenerative Institute’s patented technique iFi (Induced Follicle Implantation) has been proven that a good hair transplant does not depend only on the number of grafts.
Inducing extracted follicles can boost hair transplant success rate.
