The Dra. Bouret, specialist in Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, explains in this article what are the main treatments that are used to combat alopecia.

 

An implant or hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are moved from the nape of the patient's neck to areas of localized hair loss, such as the forehead or pate. In addition, the intervention is final.

 

It is important to resort to treatment with growth factors after the transplant since the implanted hair from the nape of the neck is genetically programmed to never fall. However, this hair does age, like the rest of the hair, which is why post-transplant treatment is crucial.

These extracted follicles are implanted in the recipient area as well as the hair-by-hair extraction.
