During the normal ageing process, our hair becomes thinner and less dense. The influence of male hormones in both men and women plays an important role and helps to explain why very few people over the age of 75 have a full head of hair. That said, male pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia) can occur in both men and women. When this happens at a young age, it’s known as premature baldness. People who suffer from this form of hair loss are ideal candidates for hair transplantation. As baldness can worsen over the years, we recommend our younger clients to postpone treatment to ensure the best possible results.
Being bald is not good for our health. Studies have found that bald men are eight times more likely to develop skin cancer than men with a full head of hair. For this alone, the cover of these bare spots, which is done with hair transplant, is medically useful.
The Partial Longitudinal Follicular Unit Extraction method, or HSI method, is an innovative hair transplant technique developed bij drs. Coen Gho. It extracts parts of hair follicles using very small needles (diameter 0,5-0,6 millimeter and length 5-6 millimeters). The technique allows stem cells in the donor area and extracts stem cells at the same time for transplantation in the reception area. Both follicles are able to grow hair. Additionally, the grafts are much smaller compared to conventional hair transplantation techniques, providing higher hair density without virtually any kind of scarring.
