Here is the article, you judge for yourself. These units are expensive and from what I hear, the benefits are marginal. One of the problems with LLLT is the distance from the scalp and the amount of hair between the LLLT and the scalp. The longer the distance and the more hair, the less effective […]
I am starting to worry about doing damage by picking off my scabs. Is it OK to do that? Absolutely, do not pick off the crusts from the recipient area as the grafts are attached to these crusts and when you pick or pull on them, the graft will come out especially in the first […]
Dr. Thomas Dawson wrote a good description of Dandruff in the Hair Transplant Forum May/June 2017 issue as follows: WHAT IS DANDRUFF? Normal scalp has few flakes and healthy appearing, smooth skin. Dandruff is characterized by loosely adherent flakes and itching. Specifically, dandruff has no inflammation and is confined to the scalp, while seborrheic dermatitis […]
Great results from the use of finasteride for 13 months and minoxidil for 3 years
This is Diffuse Unpatterned alopecia (DUPA) which shows only 5 normal thickness hairs which are labeled in the photo (1-5) and the rest are miniaturized. This comes from the donor area which almost certainly is see-through. Note that this is best seen when the hairs are cut short because they can be easily counted as […]
I had a hair transplant 8 months ago and I am bothered by bumps which are on the skin everywhere there is a graft. What can this be and will it go away? Bumpy skin in the recipient area (called cobble stoning) reflects the types of recipient sites and the way the grafts were placed […]
I had 4500 grafts in Turkey almost one year ago, I see holes in my transplant pattern. Yes, I see what you are talking about. A session of 4,500 grafts requires a great deal of skill in handling the grafts. Grafts that are out of the body exposed to air for 10 seconds will die […]
The photos show that you have nicely filled in the hairline and regrew some of the frontal hairs as well
This is the result of using microneedling along. This shows that this technique can reverse hair loss as a result of wound healing and the production of healing molecules in the wounds.
These are two pictures of bio-fibers or artificial hair placed in the scalp. You can see previous scarring from earlier bio-fibers which will be the consequence of these as well.
This is the response that I like to see with the use of topical finasteride plus minoxidil. Topical finasteride keeps the medication in the skin.
I have developed bleeding and many pimples in my recipient area 3 months after my hair transplant. You might have an infection or cysts from the surgery. Go back and have your surgeon examine you, culture the drain these cysts. Lance pimples that are large and then commence treatment if needed.
You likely have an infection present with generalized redness and some pustule formation. Your doctor should drain one or more of the pustules, culture it and then place you on a targeted antibiotic.
I recently noticed my hair thinning and it has put me in a state of sadness. There are times during the day where I can’t bring myself to do anything because of how upset I am about my hair loss. I am a 23 year-old Asian male with what I suspect to be diffuse thinning. However, […]
There are always small nerves cut during the making of the recipient sites which cover a wide area of the frontal hairline. These nerves usually stop bothering most people within the first month, but sometime people feel the numbness for many months. These nerves will eventually heal and stop bothering you, just be patient.
