Artificial Hair transplant involves the plantation of artificial hair fibers on the recipient area of the person. A typical procedure takes its basis from the donor and recipient theory of Dr. Norman Orentreich who is considered the father of modern hair transplantation. The artificial or synthetic hair transplantation surgery looks like the famous DHI method. The artificial hair transplantation is one of the most advanced methods in the world and can be performed by certified doctors only. The most preferred FUE and FUT methods are generally performed by the technicians of clinics.
Features of Hair Fibers
Hair fibers are artificial hair strands that are planted on the recipient area of the person in order to make the scalp feel them like real alive hair units. Their roots are plated with keratin in order to prevent infection and inflammations. They are planted individually by the surgeon in the same way as FUE ( Follicular Hair Transplantation ) method.
The artificial hair fibers don’t generally give the best natural look to the patients. It is considered the last chance of a person who’s been suffering from a balding head. They need more extra care to keep their fresh look and maintain the best and longest durability. Doctors say that even with the best care, artificially transplanted hair generally loses its initial fresh look after one year and additional hair transplantation surgery is needed every year.
Artificial or synthetic hair transplantation is one of the most expensive procedures in the world when we take further repair procedure into consideration. Since they are not alive hair units, they a different kind of care. Those with an artificial hair transplant should avoid the often use of chemicals and hair dryers.
Synthetic Hair Transplant Side Effects
As we said before, artificial hair transplantation is the last chance of a balding person. The candidates of this procedure generally don’t have enough hair density on their donor area ( typically the back of the head ) for a procedure that may give a better natural look. So, they can’t think of a real, alive hair transplantation procedure like FUE or FUT.
Every person has a different metabolism and immune system. Successful artificial hair transplantation involves the faking of the patient’s immune system. If the immune system targets hair fibers seeing them as a threat to the body, the person may have complications, especially infections.
The infections and situations related to bacterial complications are almost inevitable and may occur at different times in different hair fibers. In order to prevent this from happening, the person should take the best care of himself.
