Male Pattern Baldness Easier to Treat
Men’s baldness has, in the past, been easier to treat as the patient nearly always has an area situated on their head that has sufficient hair to be a donor site for the bald patches. Women tend to go through a hair thinning process which does not necessarily mean there is a suitable bushy area remaining that makes a good donor site.
Many hair transplant clinics in Nottingham are offering third generation FUE hair transplants. First of all, a digital scan is used to select the strongest and healthiest donor follicles before the hair transplant process begins. Once they have been selected, individual hair follicles are extracted separately, through the use of a micro-extractor. The hair transplant surgeon will wear ‘loupes glasses’ which are characterised by their high magnification.
Each of the hair follicles is positioned meticulously into areas of the head that are absent of hair of hair patented implanter pen. The hair transplant doctor will use an implanter pen which is a precision instrument used to transplant the hair which also imitates the direction and angle of the hair that still remains on the recipient’s head.
At hair transplant clinics in Nottingham hair transplants are simple and painless and healing of the donor area takes no more than 5 days. There is no risk of damaging nerves in the procedure and the new hairs will grow naturally with significant hair re growth becoming visible by 16 weeks. The process has been so well practised that up to 5,000 hairs can be completed daily.
