Hair maintenance before and after a hair transplant
Having strong and healthy hair isn’t just an aesthetic issue, it’s also a question of health. That’s why all people should pay attention to daily hair care, and those who suffer from a hair condition such as alopecia, for all the more reason.
Hair loss is a problem that affects millions of people around the world, both men and women. It is an undeniable reality. But, fortunately, advances in medicine and technology have made it possible to develop definitive solutions, such as hair transplantation. Although this intervention offers long-lasting and natural results, it is essential to understand that hair maintenance is still essential both before and after the procedure.
The importance of hair maintenance before a transplant
At present, we can say that hair transplant is the only definitive solution against alopecia. It involves moving hair from the donor area to areas with baldness. Once these follicular units have been transplanted, the hair will begin to grow, and will continue to do so permanently and completely naturally. But it is very important to keep in mind that, although the transplanted hair will not fall out again, we must take care of the native hair in the area with alopecia, since it still maintains its tendency to disease and could weaken over time.
Before undergoing a hair transplant, it is highly recommended that you prepare your scalp and hair to optimize results and ensure good healing. At Insparya, we will carry out a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the transplant. In addition, we will recommend hair treatments to strengthen native hair before surgery and we will give you all the instructions so that your preoperative period is the prelude to a successful operation.
Remember that, in many cases, these treatments may not be necessary, especially if you plan the transplant in the short term. Therefore, our specialist doctors will determine if it is advisable in your case to undergo any treatment prior to the intervention.
It can be Insparya’s exclusive hair mesotherapy, MesoHair, with which we will improve the quality of the hair you keep, strengthening it and making it as resistant as possible. Do not lose sight of the fact that part of these existing follicular units are the ones that we will move to areas with baldness. That’s why the stronger and healthier they are, the better.
In addition, we have ActivePlasma, which is a treatment that uses growth factors extracted from platelets, essential components of the blood, in order to stimulate tissue regeneration. Coming from our own blood, this treatment slows the deterioration of cells in the follicular units, preventing hair aging and hair thinning. The result is rejuvenated hair, with greater vitality and shine.
In this line of strengthening native hair, photobiomodulation, a hair laser treatment that you can also apply comfortably at home, can also be a good option. It stimulates both hair circulation and the production of quality hair.
Pre-transplant hair maintenance may also include lifestyle and dietary changes. A balanced, nutrient-rich diet is essential for maintaining a healthy scalp and hair. Vitamins and minerals such as biotin, zinc, iron and vitamin D play a crucial role in growing and strengthening hair. In addition, avoiding the excessive use of chemicals and aggressive treatments on the hair before the transplant can minimize its damage.
