What is the Best Time for Hair Transplantation?

The question of what the best time for hair transplantation is one of the questions that  people who are considering hair transplantation are curious about.

There is no special season for hair transplantation and hair transplantation can be done easily 12 months of the year. Only in some months and seasonal transitions, hair loss may become more frequent or decrease according to the person.

Each person can determine the appropriate time for hair transplantation by observing this process according to their own hair structure.

The transplanted hair starts to grow within three months. After the hair transplant operation, while the light crusts and redness on the skin are in the healing process, it should not be exposed to the sun’s rays too much.

Although some hair transplant surgeons say that autumn is the most suitable time for hair transplant to reduce the possibility of sun exposure in hair transplant operations to be applied to the forehead and crown area, thanks to current technology and techniques, hair transplant can be done in all 4 seasons.

In the summer months, there will be sweating and itching in extreme heat. After hair transplantation, it is necessary not to scratch the transplanted areas. It is possible to enter the pool, sea and sauna only 1 month after planting. The reason why the pool and the sea are not recommended in this process is the risk of infection. It is recommended that patients undergo a rapid recovery period by protecting themselves during the summer season.

In addition to all these, you need to plan your social life. Weddings, graduations, engagements, etc. in the near future. If you are going to have activities such as hair transplantation, you will have a more comfortable period.

The best time to have a hair transplant is when the person feels psychologically and financially ready. After the necessary tests are done, treatment can be started immediately.

Things to Consider After Hair Transplantation

The expertise of the person doing the hair transplant, the quality of the hair roots and the blood circulation in the person’s head area.

All of these factors are very important to get a positive result. You had this operation performed by a specialist, and you were told by the specialist that your hair roots were of high quality and alive and you would get good results. So, what should you pay attention to after hair transplantation, what do we recommend?

First of all, we mentioned that hair transplantation is a surgical procedure. After the hair transplant procedure, slight redness and swelling in the head area and crusting on the hair roots will occur. This crusting and swelling is temporary.

So how is the first wash of hair done? The physician who performs the hair transplantation performs the first wash with a special technique on the 2nd or 3rd day after the application. The patient is told how to wash their head. The patient washes his hair as instructed, once a day for 10 days, as instructed.

After hair transplantation, the head area should be protected, there should be no friction, and care should be taken against actions and impacts. Do not go out to the direct sun for 10 days, and if you do, you should definitely be protected with a hat. Alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine should not be used after transplantation. At least 2 liters of water should be consumed per day.

How and in which position the patient sleeps during the first 10 days is also very important. While lying down, the transplanted area should not rub against the pillow, so you should lie on your back.

After hair transplantation, the head area should be protected, there should be no friction, and care should be taken against actions and impacts.

5 Methods Used in Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a small-scale but important surgical operation that should not be overlooked. It is one of the methods preferred by those who want to find a permanent solution to the problem of intense hair loss or baldness.

There have been many methods developed over the years in the field of hair transplantation. And all these methods are all about how to collect the hair in the donor area.

Thanks to the latest methods used with the numerous possibilities offered by the technology, the hair transplant transplantation process has been highly developed and not only provides comfort and aesthetic appearance to the person in practice, but also increases the speed of recovery after the operation.

With the hair transplantation application, the person’s own hair is regained naturally and permanently, as if it had never been shed, with the most modern medical applications and in the most comfortable way.

Let’s see what techniques are used in hair transplantation. The point we want to underline again is that; This is definitely our expert’s decision. The most suitable application for you is the application that will be chosen specifically for you.

Hair Transplantation Techniques

FUT Technique

In this technique, which started to be used quite frequently in the early 2000s, the hair follicles are cut and removed from the nape area together with a skin layer. The removed scalp is divided into parts to contain a different number of hair roots. Split scalps are placed on balding areas with special techniques.

The scalp from which the strip was removed is then sutured. While the hair transplant process takes 3 hours, the recovery time is much longer. The most important disadvantage is that it leaves a scar that can be seen under short hair. This technique started to be abandoned gradually when FUE, which is a more advanced technique, was developed, and it is almost never applied today.

FUE Technique

In the FUE method, the graft in the nape region is performed by removing the hair roots one by one. Since the hair roots are taken from the area above the ear, higher healthy and lively hair roots can be reached.

There are no cuts and stitches in hair transplantation with the FUE method, so no scars are formed. This allows the patient to recover in a much shorter time. People who have had hair transplantation can actively return to their social lives within 10 days. It is one of the most preferred techniques as it provides comfort and rapid recovery to patients.

DHI Technique

The most important feature of hair transplantation using the Direct Hair Implant technique is that it is applied without stitches and incisions and leaves no traces.

In the hair transplantation process performed with the DHI hair transplantation technique, no channels are opened in the area during the procedure. Grafts (hair roots) are taken from the back of the head. The extracted hair roots are much healthier as they are removed in a short time. In this method, the hair roots taken by applying the choi (pencil) technique are placed one by one and as often as possible.

With this method, since the grafts taken from the donor area are transplanted one by one, it is easier to provide density in the hair. The patient does not feel any pain or pain during the application.

With the DHI hair transplantation technique, healing takes place very quickly, a more lush and natural hair appearance is achieved.

Robotic Hair Transplant

In robotic hair transplantation, hair follicles are collected with the help of a computer called a “robot” specially designed for this operation.

Before the hair transplant procedure, personalized hair design is also done by a smart computer. Photos of the person are taken and uploaded to the computer specially designed for this process. How many hair roots are needed for hair transplantation, where the hairline will start and the image of the person after hair transplantation are determined by the computer through these photographs and applied.

Robotic hair transplantation has the same stages as FUE hair transplantation, but the main difference here is that the same operations are performed with the help of a robot.

Even though robotic hair transplantation is a highly technological and fast method, the operation should still be performed under the supervision of a specialist doctor.

Hyperbaric Hair Transplant

It is a procedure performed with hyperbaric (HBOT) oxygen therapy. This is a treatment method that accelerates the healing process and strengthens the hair roots after transplantation. Between 10 and 20 percent of the hair roots transplanted one by one cannot be oxygenated and fed. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy method is an important treatment method in nourishing and developing the planted hair roots. By increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood after hair transplantation, the hair roots are strengthened and the redness in the donor area heals much faster. This method also ensures the survival of the transplanted hair.

Hyperbaric hair transplantation is applied in the same way as the FUE method, but after the hair transplantation, the patient breathes pure oxygen for a while in the room where hyperbaric oxygen treatments are performed, so that the oxygen level in the blood is increased. Oxygen therapy applied at regular intervals allows the hair roots to heal faster.

Hyperbaric hair transplantation is very effective in reducing the formation of swelling that may occur in the forehead and face area after transplantation, as well as reducing the formation of lump on the head. In addition, this method reduces the occurrence of complications.

What is ringworm and how is it treated?

Ringworm is a common autoimmune skin disease. It can be seen in certain parts of the hair in the size of a coin or on the entire scalp.

Autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s own immune system fights healthy cells. The body perceives its own hair roots as foreign, sends antibodies to them and the hairs begin to fall out. Generally, hair loss occurs in the scalp, beard and sometimes in the eyebrows. It is seen that very stressful periods such as illness, distress, tension, trauma and loss of a relative also trigger this disease.

Ringworm can differ from person to person. This condition, which occurs in the form of hair loss in several areas in most people, can be quite severe in some people. While sudden and regional hair loss is common in the cases, in some cases eyebrows, eyelashes, beard and even body hair may also be lost. The disease is a non-contagious disease and can recur for a long time in attacks.

How Is Ringworm Diagnosed?

The diagnosis of ringworm is made by a dermatologist based on the findings of various blood tests. The physician may also request a biopsy from the hair roots to be sure. As a result of all these tests, the disease is diagnosed.

What is done in the treatment of ringworm?

There is no definite treatment for ringworm disease. Hair loss occurs in both men and women. However, it is more likely to occur in men. Various drug treatments and lifestyle changes are used to control the disease and prevent hair loss and support hair growth.

In the middle and advanced stages of alopecia, drugs in the steroid group are used. These drugs are generally available as creams, subcutaneous injections, or buttock injections. In order for the hair to regrow, sprays and lotions containing cortisone can be used in that area.

Another method used in the treatment of ringworm is “immunotherapy”. An active substance is poured into the problematic area to cause an allergic reaction. This treatment method is not preferred by most doctors because it can cause permanent irritation on the skin. Therefore, drug therapy is preferred whenever possible.

Taking adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals necessary for the body such as iron, zinc, biotin, vitamin A, consuming antioxidant-rich foods to reduce autoimmune reactions, stopping smoking and alcohol consumption, doing regular exercise, aloe vera, argan oil, almonds that support hair growth The use of supplementary products such as oil also creates positive results in alleviating the symptoms of the disease.

Finally, experts state that in order to protect the health of the hair, it is useful to protect the hair from processes such as excessive dyeing and blow-drying, not to wash the hair with very hot water and not to brush it with hard brushes.

What is Beard Breaker and How Is It Treated?

This disease, which is called Alopecie Areata in medicine, causes hair loss in all hairy parts of the body along with the beard. It is an autoimmune disease and is a type of hair loss that affects the beard area of ​​men. Beard breaker, which usually appears suddenly, causes shedding in the beard in small round spaces on the neck.

This disease, which is quite disturbing in terms of physical appearance, creates significant gaps in the beard. It usually does not spread, but over time it can spread to other areas. If beard-breaker disease is not treated, it can spread insidiously and lead to sudden and larger spills.

Experts state that the cause of the disease is related to the immune system. Often, someone with a family history of beard-breaking disease is much more likely to experience this disease. Mental and emotional stress and depression are among the triggers of this disease, as in hair loss. Iron and protein deficiency due to irregular and unbalanced nutrition, thyroid diseases, drug use, diabetes, chemotherapy and other environmental factors also pave the way for the formation of this disease.

Early diagnosis and intervention are very important in this disease. If early diagnosis and treatment is not started, these empty spaces get bigger and spread. In this disease, healthy and adequate nutrition is very important, and foods containing protein and iron should be consumed in abundance. The drugs and herbal treatment methods applied are as follows:

  • Cortisone treatment
  • Anthralin ointment
  • Garlic application
  • Aloe vera gel treatment
  • Onion juice treatment
  • Oxygenated water application
  • Herbal oil massage applications
  • Coconut Milk application
