Micrografting, or Hair Transplantation, is a minimally invasive treatment using capillary rejuvenation therapy to combat androgenetic alopecia and promote skin rejuvenation using autologous micro-grafts obtained from the patient’s tissue. The process begins with carefully selecting and extracting micrografts, ensuring that they maintain their integrity and viability during the procedure. Once the micrografts are prepared, they are strategically transplanted into the recipient areas affected by hair thinning or baldness.

Micrografting offers several advantages over traditional hair transplant methods, including minimal scarring, the tiny incisions created for graft placement are virtually undetectable, and faster recovery times compared to older techniques. This results in a more natural-looking finish as the micrografts mimic the natural growth pattern of the patient’s hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does micrograft work as a hair loss treatment?

Micrografting hair loss treatment, or micrograft hair transplant, is a proven and effective method for addressing hair loss and restoring natural hair density. The success of this treatment depends on several factors, including:

  • The graft quality – The extraction and preparation of micrografts are essential to ensure their viability and successful transplantation.
  • Recipient site placement – Precise placement of the micrografts in the recipient areas is crucial for achieving a natural-looking outcome.
  • Post-operative care – Proper post-operative care, including following instructions for wound care, can influence the procedure’s success.

Who is micrografting for?

Micrografting hair treatment is typically suitable for individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning and seeking a surgical solution to restore hair density and improve their overall appearance.

What are the benefits of micrografting?

Micrografting, also known as micrograft hair transplantation, offers several benefits for individuals seeking a solution for hair loss.

  • Natural-looking results – Micrografts consist of small groups of hair follicles, mimicking the natural growth pattern and providing a seamless and realistic appearance.
  • Minimised scarring – The tiny incisions for graft placement are virtually undetectable, resulting in minimal scarring.
  • Effective hair restoration – Micrografts can effectively restore hair density in areas affected by hair loss.
  • Customisation – The treatment can be customised to meet individual needs and goals, addressing specific areas of concern.
  • Low risk – Micrografting is considered a safe procedure performed by an experienced surgeon with minimal risk of complications.
  • Improved self-confidence – Restoring a full head of hair can boost self-esteem and enhance confidence.
  • Versatile – Micrografting can address various types of hair loss, including pattern baldness in men and women, scarring and thinning hair.

When will I see the results from the micrografting treatment?

Micrografting (hair transplant) results vary, but initial improvements are noticeable immediately after the procedure. Expect some initial shedding, followed by early signs of new hair growth in a few months. Significant improvements are typically seen between three and six months, with full and mature results appearing around 12 to 18 months post-treatment.

Individual outcomes can differ based on factors such as the extent of hair loss and personal response to the procedure. Maintenance and proper care are crucial for long-lasting results. Consulting with our specialists can provide a more accurate timeline based on your unique situation.

What is the recovery time for micrografting treatment?

Recovery time is relatively short, with most patients able to return to regular activities within a few days.

What’s the difference between micrografting and traditional hair transplant procedures?

Micrografting offers several advantages over traditional hair transplant methods, including minimal scarring, virtually undetectable tiny incisions created for graft placement, and faster recovery times compared to older techniques. This results in a more natural-looking finish as the micrografts mimic the natural growth pattern of the patient’s hair.

What happens during the procedure?

A small hair-bearing strip of the scaps is removed from the donor areas, which is then closed by your surgeon, leaving a fine line concealed amongst the rest of the hair. Specialists then divide the harvested strip microscopically for placement in the balding spots.

Depending on your level of discomfort, your doctor may use IV sedation or local anesthesia. In a successful procedure, the transplanted and original hairs are virtually indistinguishable.

How long does the procedure take?

The length of a micrograft hair transplant depends on how much hair you have grafted, but you can generally expect it to last four to six hours.

What happens after the procedure?

You can return to your routine 24 to 48 hours after micrograft hair transplantation. However, it is best to avoid energetic physical activities for approximately five to seven days. You can wash your hair the morning after each session.

Who does micrografting not suit?

You are not suitable for micrografting if you are allergic to lidocaine (contained in anaesthetic), are pregnant or breastfeeding, have been diagnosed with scarring alopecia or keloid scarring, have an active inflammation of the scalp, have active cancer or chemotherapy and have had another hair loss restorative treatment in the last two weeks (oral medication does not affect eligibility).
