What you have are not scabs but necrosis of the skin in the recipient area. This means that these black areas have skin that has died as a result of your hair transplant. You need so see your surgeon as this will require wound care and eventually you will be left with a scar in that […]
This treatment is being promoted in Germany and in Europe called AC-Therapy. It is supposed to decrease the muscle tension of the scalp which in turn decreases circulation to the scalp. Supposedly, with less circulation there is less oxygen and nutrition and this is therefore claimed as the cause for patterned hair loss in men. […]
I’m feeling very nervous. 99% of Dutasteride users here have mentioned that Dut cause Gynecomastia in men. Thanking you in advance I personally very rarely have prescribed Dutasteride, so I can’t comment on this from personal experience.
The three most common causes of graft failures includes (1) exposure to air for more than 15 seconds when placing the grafts or when preparing the grafts, (2) rough handling of the grafts during placement, (3) a recipient site that is too tight. These problems most frequently arise when the surgical team is sloppy, inexperience, poorly […]
I read a lot in forums that if loses its effectiveness after 10 years. I’ve been on the drug since I was 19 at the first signs of miniaturizing. I may have confused the miniaturizing with a mature hairline. I’ve now been on the drug for 6 years and I’ve kept exactly everything I ever […]
Pictures are worth 1000 words. Finasteride produced nice results in a relatively short time; however, I might question if the photograph is really telling the story as the results could be hair length alone.
I am surprised at this report, but considering that it is from a prestigious journal, the Journal of Plastic Surgery, the report seems to have merit. I would like to see a larger group for better statistical analysis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4740347/
I always tell my patients that the risk of sexual dysfunction or loss of libido was between 2-4% but this article suggests that these side effects were not seen in their study of over 600 men from all age groups. This suggests a strong psychological impact that could be the cause of the sexual complaints […]
This article shows the Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Hair Regrowth: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial. This is an impressive study and it will make me rethink my approach to PRP. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4622412/
I would have to (1) know how many grafts you had taken and (2) see your same picture in another 3 months with the same hair cut. That will tell me if it is an over-harvested donor area. I would hope that the redness would be gone in a week or two.
Imagine a woman running her hands through your wonderful thick hair. Hidden talent from funny
I was told that transplanted hair is placed into a hormone sensitive area (area from hair line over the top of the head till small part at the back). What are the chances (approx. in percent if possible) of losing the transplanted hair? how many patients are satisfied with the result 5-10 years post FUE transplatation? […]
I am nearly 30 and have had diffuse loss at some point in my frontal third over the past decade. All in all though, it hasn’t really changed in years. It’s thinner than in my adolescence, but doesn’t really seem to be progressing much? In men with genetic hair loss, the hair loss associated with […]
You can reduce the dost a bit, like one pill every other day which will give you 80% the value. 20 months on Fin – half dose time?? from tressless
I mean, they’re not really wrong. The only way to stop balding is to never go through puberty. Futhermore, hair loss happens with age, as we slowly slink towards the grave. Minoxidil is a growth stimulant that doesn’t address the mechanisms for why we bald, it simply provides a cosmetic effect, which is what most […]
