Hair transplant is a minor surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from a high density area on the back to lower density areas on top. It is essentially a redistribution of the hair in order to densify the sparse areas of the scalp. The results of a hair transplant are usually permanent. Given that a good grafting result is always composed of grafted hair and pre-existing hair, always be sure to effectively control the hair loss of existing hair already present before the surgery. Fortunately, we now have a host of effective hair loss options. Read more about hair transplant »
After the procedure
The cost of a hair transplant depends on the area to be covered, the density, the type of hair, the amount of pre-existing hair and a host of other factors specific to each individual. Usually, fees vary between $9,800 and $16,500. Several methods exist and all give different results. The Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ method (MUHG™) exclusive to PAI Medical Group is the one that allows the largest number of hair to be transplanted within a single procedure. Before making a decision, ensure that you have all the information you need to analyze your costs. It is always advantageous to invest 20% to 30% more and get a larger amount of hair right from the start. This will reduce the number of follow-up procedures needed to achieve the desired result or if possible, limit the need for a second or third procedure for some unique patients.
A shampoo alone cannot usually prevent hair loss. Shampoos are used to clean hair and scalp. They can be very effective in relieving certain conditions like dandruff, itching, irritations and other disorders of the scalp. As hair loss is usually of genetic or hormonal origin, it is necessary to target the problem further.
Shampoos are very necessary in the treatment of hair loss becasue they must be used before any effective treatment to ensure the penetration of active ingredients into the surface of the scalp. Rinse-free lotions are preferred when looking for an effective anti-hair loss product. These products are applied to the scalp and should not be rinsed in order to allow them to penetrate. Some shampoos are formulated specifically to ensure better penetration of lotions without rinsing.
