Hair is actually a collection of shafts made of keratin, each sealed by a cuticle and fixed at the root of the scalp by follicles, which generate lipids to nourish the hair. The initial growth period spans two to six years, after which follows a two- to three-week transition period. After a three-month growth respite, the hair begins to fall out and a new hair cycle begins, in which 50 to 150 daily new hair shafts emerge. Eventually (and unnoticeably), around 100,000 hairs cover the head. More than half of all men suffer from hereditary hair loss. The hair roots in these cases are programmed thus, that hair loss and baldness occurs even in men with otherwise normal testosterone levels. Cause is not the testosterone itself but what it produces: Dihydrotestosteron (DHT). However, a flaw in the sexual hormone can also lead to problematic hair growth and thinning.
Most commonly, men experience a receding hairline while in women, it occurs more often in the parting area.
Hair loss is often considered to compromise both attractiveness and quality of life. In our experience, the safest method with which to regain a good head of hair is a qualified hair transplant. Through this procedure, our experienced team can transplant up to 1,500 mini- and macro transplants per treatment – and even cover greater areas of baldness in two to three treatment sessions.
