DHI hair transplant
Abbreviation of Direct Hair Implantation, DHI hair transplantation is one of the simplest techniques to overcome alopecia. The technique has more and more success because it adapts to many patient profiles. It can be used regardless of the size of the area to be treated. How does this method work? Why this one and not another? Here is some practical information.
Without incision and without scar
The popularity of a DHI hair transplant is primarily due to its comfort. The harvesting and implantation of the grafts are done without incision and practically without pain. And of course, the scars are minimal or non-existent.
The grafts are taken from the donor areas using a very thin pin called the Choi implanter pen, the thickness of which is between 2 and 4mm. This instrument was developed in South Korea by a team of researchers from the National Kyunpook University .
The actual removal is done by FUE (Follicular Unite Extraction) which consists of removing the follicular units one by one. This sample is also without scar. The reinsertion of the grafts is done immediately, unlike other techniques where the graft must rest for at least 6 hours under specific conditions. This immediate implantation considerably reduces the duration of the intervention.
An effective hair transplant on men and women
The DHI hair transplant technique is possible for both men and women in order to meet the needs of as many people as possible.
Indeed, 2/3 of men experience hair loss problems from the age of 35 and around 50, 85% of them are affected by true baldness. Women are not spared even if the figures are less alarming for women. Admittedly, women are rarely affected by complete baldness, but since hair is considered a very feminine asset, hair loss can quickly become a real problem for women. This can lead to major consequences such as nervous breakdown.
For all these reasons, experts adapt DHI hair transplantation to the needs of both women and men. The number of women having recourse to hair transplantation has also increased considerably in recent years. More than 2 million women take the plunge with 25% aged 35 to 45 and more than 40% over 50. The figures are much higher for these gentlemen since more than 10 million men now have recourse to DHI hair transplantation or other methods.
A high success rate
Whether in men or women, the success of DHI hair transplantation also results from its high success rate. With a capillary coverage density of 80 to 90 bulbs per cm², the technique guarantees a regular and definitive result. Rejections are very rare and the new hair is very natural.
Moreover, the success rate is on average 98% which makes it a safe investment knowing that there is obviously a certain budget to plan for this type of intervention. Those interested have the choice between interventions in France or abroad.
Of course, to make the right choice, you should learn about all the hair transplant techniques that currently exist. Even make an appointment with different specialists to get several opinions. You will also find a lot of information on the internet, especially on this forum which will allow you to have feedback.
