Strong, sensual or delicate, healthy eyebrows can amplify emotion, and create a deeper, more nuanced expression. At the Hair Sciences Center Mediterranean hair transplant utilizes state-of-the-art DHI Hair Transplant (DHI) and transplantation techniques to naturally enhance the eyebrows using one’s own hair...
DHI Hair Transplant
Choi Implanter Pen Tecnique
When Follicular Unit Extraction was first implemented as a hair transplantation method, graft extraction and implantation was done using simple manual tools. The process was then sped up with the introduction of a machine known as a micro-motor, which was using during both the extraction and the re-plantation stages. This mechanic device allowed surgeons to transplant a larger number of grafts through improved extraction. However, the micro-motor has a number of disadvantages when used for the implantation of donor grafts. Now, Mediterranean Hair Transplant Clinic further improves on this crucial stage with a new kind of instrument - the Choi Implanter Pen.
How Does the Choi Implanter Pen Work?
The Choi Implanter is a pen-like instrument with a hollow needle on one of its ends. Technicians at the operating room load extracted hair grafts into the hollow needle end. The surgeon then uses the pen to implant the pre-loaded into the scalp. This process is then repeated for every single graft. During a typical transplant, our hair transplant surgeon and the team use about 6 pens interchangeably to optimise the implantation time and pace.
Major Improvements and Advantages
The use of an implanter pen eliminates the need for channel incisions. Previously, the operating team would need to create tiny circular incisions on the scalp and plant grafts inside these channels. Surgeons can now "inject" grafts directly into the recipient zones. This decreases trauma and blood loss during the transplant.
As a result, using the Choi Implanter Pen, our surgeons can now achieve significantly higher graft survival rate following the transplant. Furthermore, decreased trauma means faster healing times for our patients. There is clear and onvious evidence of better aesthetic results, as grafts can be positioned with greater precision during implantation.
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient's own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. Other terms for this treatment include PRP hair regrowth treatment, and in the U.K., angel PRP hair regrowth and vampire hair regrowth plan. The treatment can also be combined with hair transplant surgery, microneedling, or medications such as Propecia and Minoxidil.
PRP specific cells that causes hair growth include:
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)—promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation;
Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)—promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)—promotes blood vessel formation;
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)—promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)—promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation; and,
Insulin Like Growth Factor - (IGF)—a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
