Hair Multiplication

Hair Multiplication

In Hair multiplication germinative cells are multiplied outside the body in essentially unlimited amounts, in hair multiplication, donor hair follicles are removed from the scalp and then manipulated in a way that the total amount of hair is increased. This can involve using transected, or cut, hair follicles and implanting them directly into the scalp and then the follicles will regenerate and grow a complete hair.

The concept behind hair multiplication using plucked hair is that it is an easy, non-invasive method of obtaining germinative cells. Also, in hair multiplication, a small proportion of the germinative cells, through plucking, may provide enough tissue for the formation of a new follicle while not diminishing the original one.

The stem cells found were localised from the sebaceous gland to the lower section of the hair follicle Colin Jahoda demonstrated that portions of the hair follicles that contain stem cells are also capable of inducing hair growth. These areas/cells could also be identified in plucked hair and in our cell cultures. This research was published in the May 2005 issue of the British Journal of Dermatology. This discovery is the scientific basis for hair multiplication. Coen Gho made a very notable finding: the "Pili Multigemini." This is a phenomenon by which two or more follicles develop from the same, single follicle. A normal follicle unit contains two to three follicles. These follicles will produce two to three normal hairs. In several different studies, he demonstrated that when one or two higher elements of the follicles were implanted, not one or two but three to even (in some cases) five hairs regenerated. This discovery is the basis of hair multiplication.When he discovered this, he developed the hair multiplication method, a very promising new development in the field of hair restoration.

Hair transplantation has been limited by the number of available hairs on the head, but cellular regeneration may make it possible to multiply hairs, providing a potentially unlimited supply of hair growth. With rejuvenated hair follicles producing healthy hair, people can get back to the business of leading confident, productive lives.

Hair transplantation is really about relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head. This process works for a lifetime because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated to.

Hair transplantation, when done right, can be so natural that even your hair stylist will not know that you've had it done. But the skill and techniques of hair transplant surgeons does vary widely, as do their results. It's important to choose the right procedure and clinic to assure that you will get completely natural results.

A typical session of between 1,500 to 3,000 grafts normally involves a full day of surgery on an out patient basis. Most patients will arrive in the morning and will have their procedure completed by late afternoon.

Patients are given local anesthesia in the donor and recipient areas. Most patients find that once the anesthesia is given that they feel no pain or discomfort during the surgery. Following surgery patients will typically feel some amount of soreness and numbness, with some mild discomfort. Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how minimal the discomfort from the surgical procedure is.

The amount of grafts you will need ultimately depends on your degree of hair loss, now and in the future, and on how full you desire your hair to be.

With today’s very refined micro hair transplantation procedure the incisions are very small and less invasive than past procedures. This results in more rapid healing. Most patients feel fine within a day or two following surgery, although some numbness and mild soreness can be expected for several days following surgery.

Immediately following surgery a patient’s recipient area is typically pink with scabs forming around the micro incisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.

During the first few days after the surgery a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair to mask these temporary scabs. However, most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following surgery.

Once the transplanted hair grows out the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.

Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows in very thin initially and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After one year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a life time.

Since the hair follicles that are transplanted to the balding areas are genetically resistant to going bald, they will continue to grow for a life time – just as if they had been left in the bald resistant donor area.

Many patients can return to their daily routines within 1 to 2 days, as long as they don't do anything too strenuous. Avoid rigorous exercise until the donor sutures are removed — generally after 10 to 12 days.

Hair Multiplication or sometimes it is referred to as hair cloning is the most anticipated research in hair loss nowadays. Existing hair loss treatments in the world have serious shortcomings. Many products are not as effective as one may hope. While hair transplant, if done correctly, can give most people their natural growing hair back, many still prefer not to have to go through surgery in order to restore their hair. This gives rise to the demand for Hair Multiplication.
