Image Regenerative Clinic is the only center in Italy that performs the Hair StemCell Transplantation technique, a partial longitudinal follicular unit extraction method, developed by Dr. Coen Gho. The method was originally studied to treat burn patients, who often had a scarce area to use to donate to the procedure. The goal in that case was to preserve the donor area as much as possible, in order to reuse it in subsequent interventions, as one was unlikely to be enough.
The procedure guarantees the vitality of the grafts and the stimulation of the stem cells, at the same time allowing the total preservation of the hair capital.
The survival rate of transplanted grafts is more than 90%. A “little miracle” to use the words of many patients, an incredibly effective method, without scarring, with high hair density and a completely natural final effect.
Now used in many countries, this regenerative transplantation guarantees excellent results, supported by valid scientific literature, and always in line with the philosophy of Image Regenerative Clinic.
Male hair transplantion
In men, hormonal changes related to the normal aging process and many other factors, lead to hair loss known as androgenetic alopecia – or premature baldness in young men. It is precisely in young subjects, on which the thinning will continue over the years, that this technique proves to be perfect, because the regenerative process will make it possible to regain the lost hair – thick and luxurious.
Androgenetic alopecia is by far the most common cause of baldness.
Female hair transplantion
In women, alopecia is even more painful than in men, and is always a cause of serious embarrassment.
The causes of hormonal alterations that can lead to baldness or progressive thinning are many, often intersecting with each other: the physiological aging process, pregnancy or menopause, medicines, the presence of autoimmune diseases and other factors.
But if in some of these cases the problem may be temporary, and therefore solvable with the restoration of optimal hormonal conditions, in others transplantation emerges as the only effective solution.
HST regenerative hair transplant
During the operation, the doctor performs the partial – and not complete – extraction of the follicle using very thin instruments (0.5-0.6 mm in diameter by 5-6 mm in length). Indeed, research has shown that only part of the follicle is sufficient to produce one or more hairs, because the stem cells are found in the tissue used for the transplant (graft), but also in the tissue of the “donor” area. This translates into new growth of the same quality of hair in both the donor and recipient areas, where the hair can be inserted with minimal and incisions that are particularly close to each other, thus obtaining extraordinary density.
Another plus of the HST method is that no bandage is applied after the operation, unlike what happens in other transplantation techniques, guaranteeing an immediate social return.
Recovery time is also reduced: in the post-operative period, micro-scabs form but they will fall off autonomously in the following days, without causing pain, edema or itching.
Why Hair Stem Transplantation is different
Compared to other techniques, such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), this transplantation allows you to preserve the donor area as much as possible without depleting it. The regeneration of the explanted area allows, where necessary, possible retouches, after a few months, to further thicken the receiving area.
For whom it is appropriate
Hair StemCell Transplantation is indicated in cases of androgenetic alopecia and premature alopecia.
Recommended post-surgery treatments
Ozone in case of inflammation; hair-filler as an adjuvant after healing.
Several hours; the patient remains at the clinic throughout the day.
Image team led by Prof. Carlo Tremolada performs HST procedures in Milan.
