In order to understand the hair transplantation
principle, we need to understand first why do we lose hair and how
does baldness take place.
The androgenic baldness (the most common baldness)
has not revealed yet its cause, but we now know how it settles.
The normal life of hair can be analyzed in three
Anagen stage also called
the growing phase of hair cycles which lasts about 4 years
Catagen stage also called
the resting phase of the hair cycles during which hair does not
grow. It last about 10 days
Telogen stage also called
the "grown hair excretion period" when a new hair kicks
the old one. This is during this stage lasting about 4 months
that hair falls or remains caught to the comb or the hair brush.
Such a hair loss is a completely normal and natural
phenomenon. The fallen hair is replaced by new hair and this process
is not even noticeable.
Unfortunately when this hair replacement is not done properly the
baldness settles down gradually.
Fortunately this phenomenon affects only the
pattern on the top of the skull. The crown area of the head
having a high hair ratio is not affected since the hair will continue
to grow all life long.
You have to remember that the hair of
the crown area is different from the hair on the top. If
one's has a baldness pattern on the top, it is not due to a "skin
dysfunction". The reason simply lies in the ageing process
of hair which falls faster.
Hair transplant has its origins in this essential
concept. This technique is an operation, which takes hair from the
back of the head and moves it to the area of hair loss. The transplantation
of this hair to a bald area does not change its ability to grow.
Hair transplant is therefore a redistribution
of hair resources of the crown.
This precious hair resource shall not be wasted
and shall be considerate as a strategic reserve of the crown for
the best exploitation. The actual techniques of micrografting
and ultra micrografting are the only ways to cover more important
baldness by optimization of the crown.
It is easily understandable that the hair
transplant consisting in a redistribution of hair cannot give you
the capillary density of a youngster but a new hair according to
your age. You will have your own hair alive and still growing
throughout your life.
