Hair transplantation REGULAR+ (up to 2500 hair follicles)
Healthy and luscious hair gives a lot of confidence. On average, a person's head has about 100,000 hairs, about 50-100 of them fall out naturally per day. Nevertheless, some of the people experience increased hair loss. This happens not only to men but also to women: for men, the upper part of the forehead scalp or the area between the incenses grows bald, and in women, hair thins at the nape of the neck. It is necessary to provide the body with the proper nutrients and, if there is a need, to take additional vitamins or food supplements. Nevertheless, if the problem is already ulcerating - it is worth to see a doctor.
One of the most effective ways to enjoy lush and healthy hair is DHI method of hair transplantation.
- DHI method – it is the transfer of a hair follicle from the donor zone (usually the occipital area) to the site, where it is desired to restore the hair and/or increase its density.
- An extremely small instrument is used to perform the procedure with a nozzle diameter of just one millimetre or even less.
- In order to ensure successful hair attachment, growth and development, during the procedure, before transplantation, the extracted hair follicles are stored in a specially adapted medium.
- According to the desired direction of growth, each hair is implanted into the skin at the appropriate depth, at the required angle using a patented DHI implanter.
- Scalpels or other traumatic surgical instruments are not used during the procedure.
Advantages of DHI
- The patient's skin areas are not transplanted.
- No noticeable scars remain.
- The procedure is less interventional than a visit to an odontologist.
- Completely safe.
- The depth of implantation of each hair can be controlled.
- Needles that normally injure the hair follicle are not used for transplantation.
- As a result of minimal trauma, as many as 90-99 percent of the transplanted hair heals.

5 most common myths about hair transplantation
Myth: transplanted hair does not stick. According to R. Kliunkienė, as many as 99 percent of hair stick, however, one or more months after transplantation, some of them fall out for some time. That should not be feared - transplanted hair, depending on the natural phases of hair growth, regrowth after 6-12 months, so it takes a little patience to see the end result.
Uždavinytė Šemetienė adds that in the case of androgenic alopecia, the hair falls out in an area where the hair follicles are sensitive to androgens (male sex hormones). Such areas are the scalp and the hairy part of the forehead, and during transplantation, hair follicles are taken from an area of the head that is not sensitive to androgens, thus transplanted hair remains.
Myth: the procedure is painful. Not true – hair transplantation patients often compare to a visit to an odontologist. During the procedure, according to R. Kliunkienė, local anaesthesia is performed and the patient does not feel pain, therefore, the discomfort is caused by at least a few small needle punctures during analgesia.
Myth: the procedure can be performed on any patient, regardless of whether he has his own hair, or not. "During the procedure, hair is taken from the patient's own donor area (occipital zone) and transplanted to another location, localization of hair changes. If the patient has lost all his own hair - the transplantation is impossible", - says A. Audickaitė, a dermatovenereologist at Kardiolita Hospital, which employs some of the best doctors in Lithuania.
Myth: transplanted is artificial (synthetic) hair. G. Uždavinytė-Šemetienė states that she was directly confronted with this myth during a consultation – the patient inquired about the properties of such hair. "I want to emphasize that own, the same person’s hair is being transplanted. They are moved from an area where they grow denser and their thinning is less noticeable, into the area, which you want to adjust. The most often - from the occiput to the scalp and forehead area at the line of hair growth, in order to restore or adjust it", – says a doctor plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Myth: hair follicles regrow at the site from which they are taken during the transplantation. According to A. Audickaitė, hair in that place does not regrow because it is transplanted elsewhere. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor before the procedure and assess from where and how much hair will be transferred to the new area, because hair follicles in the donor area also have their limit.
