Hair Transplant Surgeries and their process

Before the appearance of scalp micropigmentation, hair transplant surgery used to be the one that offered the greatest guarantee among all the treatments that were offered to treat hair loss. 

The result is often acceptable in general. However, the transplanted hair is not that dense

Hair transplant surgery is a surgical process that uses hair from other parts of the body of the patient. It involves the extraction of a complete strip of skin with its follicles from the back of the head. This can be a painful surgery and produce scar tissue.

Hair transplants work in most cases as the hair that is transplanted is more resistant than the hair that is lost. Therefore, it is more probable that the hair remains for a prolonged time on the scalp.

One of the main reasons that clients cannot achieve the desired effect is not having a sufficient amount of donor hair. This mainly occurs when it is necessary to cover a wider type of baldness. An example would be alopecia totalis, where hair loss almost reaches levels close to 100%.

A great proportion of hair transplant patients enter into the category of having a sufficient amount of donor hair for a transplant, but not enough for a perfect finish. The result is often acceptable in general. However, the transplanted hair is not as dense as the patient would like it to be.

The tricopigmentation system allows for the camouflaging of the scars, which result from a hair transplant. The technique can be beneficial for the patients that have undergone a transplant, regardless of the size of the transplanted area and it can even mean that less quantity of donor hair is necessary for the transplant.
