The hair around the back and sides of the head is genetically programmed to grow for life. A hair transplant is a simple redistribution of this permanent hair to the thin and balding areas of the scalp.
Hair loss has a range of causes and it is important to get an expert diagnosis in order to choose the right treatment for your specific condition. For example, male pattern baldness is caused by a hormone called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), which damages the hair follicles on the top of the head, but doesn’t affect the hairs on the back and sides of the head. The same hormone causes female hair loss, but in a different pattern. Other causes of hair loss include stress, scalp conditions and some medications. For personalised hair loss advice, arrange a private consultation with Vinci Hair Clinic.
Absolutely. Your own natural hair is used for the transplant and it will continue growing at the same pace as the rest of your hair.
Vinci FUE sessions will require us to shave your donor area.
As the transplanted hair is in different phases from growth to dormant, regrowth is progressive and starts from approximately three months post-op. At the six month stage, hair growth has been active for three months and we would expect to see a good portion of the hair growing through. Near to all regrowth is achieved from between 12 to 18 months.
Yes. The hair follicles we transplant from the donor area are genetically programmed to grow for the rest of your life. These genetic properties do not change when the hair is moved to the bald and thinning area.
