Usually teams of 3-4 medical professionals work on your scalp throughout the procedure and each practitioner has a speciality of their own. For example the surgery starts with anaesthetics and this part is performed by the anaesthetics technician. Then the extraction of follicles is performed by the entire team.

PRP Treatment

When it comes to hair loss, there are many people suffer from that.  Today, hair loss is treated not only with hair transplantation surgeries, but also with non-surgical procedures. PRP is one of these procedures. In the PRP process a blood sample from the patient is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet concentration. These platelets secrete 23 distinct growth factors that are responsible for triggering cellular regeneration and regrowth while the plasma itself contains three separate proteins that act as a matrix for bone, connective tissue, and epithelial regrowth. The resulting concentrate of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an extremely powerful and versatile treatment that can be used to help treat hair loss in three specific ways.

Originally, PRP was used in conjunction with surgical hair transplant procedures to encourage newly grafted follicular units to take root and begin to grow. During any hair transplantation procedure, it is possible to get the most out of a hair transplantation procedure with the support of PRP treatment whether it is accomplished through follicular unit grafting for follicular unit extraction.

After hair transplantation surgery, some patients experience “shock loss,” when hair follicles that are upset by the process of surgical transplantation enter a dormant telogen state during with the hair is shed. Although this is a temporary side effect, and the new healthy follicles grow new hair during their next growth cycle, the delay can often be annoying to patients anxious to see their hair transplantation results.  PRP, injected after hair transplantation surgery, accelerates the transition of the hair follicle from the dormant telogen state back to the actively growing anagen state

Finally, Platelet Rich Plasma has proven to be an effective stand-alone treatment for both men and women suffering from certain types of hair loss.  Common androgenetic alopecia, or genetic pattern baldness, causes the hair follicles to gradually shrink, producing progressively thinner hair strands until they stop producing hair altogether.  PRP stimulates the body’s natural healing factors, so that hair loss can be stopped.

What Makes a Good Candidate for PRP hair restoration treatment?

 There are two types of ideal candidates when it comes to PRP treatments. Either patients with areas of weak quality hair growth on the scalp, where functioning hair follicles can still be observed, or patients with small areas of alopecia. According to our experience, these patients tend to have the most successful hair regrowth after PRP treatments.

How long will it take to see the results of PRP treatment?

Generally, it can take up to several months to judge the results of the therapy. It can take up to six to twelve months to see the results of PRP visually in the mirror and in standardized photos. However, your hair will start gain strength from the very first day, and you will be able to notice even the smallest details.

Risks and Advantages of PRP Treatments

The main risk of PRP is that your doctor or technicians are using careless or outdated preparation methods, and surgical equipment or techniques. Patients on certain medications or have certain blood disorders or are not eligible for PRP treatments. PRP is immunologically neutral and poses little risk of allergy, hypersensitivity or foreign-body reactions.

Hair Mesotherapy

Unhealthy hair and excess hair loss are common problem and mostly due to thinned or weakened hair and damaged hair follicles. Hair mesotherapy reverses this problem by restoring damaged skin structures and scalp, so that new hair can grow in a healthy, sustainable manner. So, why a hair mesotherapy treatment?
Stimulates growth of new hair,

Prevents spilt/damaged ends,

Speeds up formation of new hair follicles,

Repairs damaged tissues in scalp,

Increases hair density and volume,

Regulates blood circulation in the scalp,

Delivers noticeable results within two months

The treatment is performed with a cocktail of active substances including various minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and vitamins injected into the scalp to restore hair follicles and skin structure tissues and stimulate growth of new tissues. This nutrient rich cocktail of various elements regulates blood circulation in the scalp, preventing split/damaged ends. It also stimulates the formation of new hair follicles.

Number of mesotherapy treatments is individual, and depends on the quality of hair and skin.
Each procedure lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. Although the number of procedure sessions varies, at least ten sessions are required to prevent hair loss, and stimulate hair growth. The procedure does not involve surgery or anesthesia, and you can return to your daily routine, after the procedure.

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. Mesotherapy, as a hair restoration treatment, involves a process of injecting a solution of nutrients into the middle layer of scalp skin.  Injection is performed with a specially designed sterile needle. The solution injected into scalp skin includes a mixture of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, minerals, and enzymes and plant extracts. This provides a vitamin support that stimulates blood flow in the affected area of scalp.

The treatment results in increased hair density and volume. Considerable changes can be seen within 12 months. However, it should be noted that every patient is unique and every surgery has unique aspects. The treatment results are individual and vary from patient to patient.

Patients must be patient and composed while taking mesotherapy treatment as visible results are only observed after two to three sessions. The basis of the treatment substance injected during the mesotherapy procedure is based on the cause of hair loss. Since this substance generally contains vitamins, nutrients, and other tissue-friendly materials, hair mesotherapy treatment can be considered safe with no side effects. Hair mesotherapy is considered an easy solution for chronic hair loss as patients who undergo a hair mesotherapy procedure feel minimal pain and discomfort.

This therapy may aggravate skin ailments, dermal inflammations, diabetes, and hemophilia; therefore patients with such conditions, and pregnant women should refrain from this therapy.

Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation techniques develop in parallel with the studies and technological developments in this field. Recently, sapphire FUE hair transplantation, the latest technology has gained preference. FUE Hair Transplantation is one of the safest hair restoration techniques, and one of the best methods that delivers the most natural-looking cosmetic outcome. As many other surgical procedures involving the use of tools made of precious gemstones called sapphire, this technique named as Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation involves the use of sapphire blades.

In the sapphire FUE technique, sapphire blades designed to make smaller incisions or to open micro channels in the recipient site are used. The use of sapphire blades minimizes scab formation in the surgical site, and shortens the recovery time in FUE hair transplant procedures. Thanks to the use of sapphire blades affected sites recover faster in comparison to other regular procedures.

The studies and researches aimed to improve and get better results with the sapphire FUE technique gave rise to the use of FUE hair transplantation and made it the most preferred hair transplant technique worldwide. The sapphire blades’ qualities such as their smooth surfaces with antibacterial properties, incredible sharpness, and durability facilitate the treatment. Therefore, the risk of complications such as trauma and scalp tissue damage is considerably reduced, and more natural-looking results can be achieved.

In a sapphire FUE procedure, special sapphire blades, instead of steel blades are used to open micro channels in the recipient site. These blades designed to open smaller and finer micro channels in the recipient site, can minimize scab formation and scars, and shorten recovery time. In a sapphire FUE procedure performed with sapphire blades, hair follicles are extracted one by one from the donor area with the aid of a micro motor in variable sizes with a diameter of around 0.6 mm, after the patient is administered local anesthesia. 

The extracted hair follicles are inserted into the incisions made. These channels must have a certain depth, angle and direction, and enable a natural-looking hair growth. Therefore, micro channel formation plays a key role in the outcome of an entire hair transplantation procedure.

Today, sapphire blades are the best tools for opening micro channels. They have smooth surfaces, variable sizes, and are durable and very sharp. In order to achieve a natural-looking hairline, hair follicles must be implanted in accordance with the patient’s hair style.

Advantages of Sapphire FUE Hair Transplantation

Sapphire blades minimize the risk of complications such as trauma, scars, and scalp tissue damage.  

Sapphire blades used in hair transplantation procedures have smooth surfaces, longer lifespan, hardness, and are precise, they also have antibacterial properties that facilitate the process of opening micro channels.

More natural-looking hairline is achieved

Reduces fluid retention after surgery, and makes recovery more comfortable for the patient,

Thanks to the minimal incisions, recovery time is shorter in comparison to the procedures performed with steel blades,

Growth direction and growth angle of the hair are preserved

Beard Transplantation

Facial hair restoration is a procedure help to restore the facial hair in areas where facial hair is lost. This procedure is performed to restore the hair loss in mustache and beard areas, however, facial hair restoration can also be useful to restore hair loss on the in sideburn sites and on cheeks.

FUE facial hair transplants are performed under the same principles as modern hair transplant surgery; hair grafts are taken from the back of your head between two ears, and then transplanted into the recipient area. Recovery instructions for facial hair loss procedures are the same as in traditional hair transplantation procedures, and recovery requires patience.

Recovery starts right after the beard transplantation and visible signs of the recovery subside within five to seven days. Here is a good guide to recovery from beard transplantation:

The day after surgery

Gently but thoroughly wash the affected area to make sure there is no blood. Your donor site can be painful and probably numb.

Days 2 and 3

Medium redness in the recipient area can be observed. Some swelling may occur around the recipient area. The feeling of discomfort in the donor area is disappearing. However, numbness may continue.


Days 4 to 6

Swelling in the recipient area is going down, and the recipient area is getting better.

At the end of Week 1

The swelling must have gone down completely. Redness and other feelings of discomfort will disappear completely after the first week. Continue using your prescribed medicines to help your donor area fully recover.

Day 10

Your transplanted grafts are permanently fixed, and will not fall off. You can return to your daily routine. If you followed the post-op instructions correctly and took good care of you, the donor area must have recovered more than 70% by now.


The best results from surgery depend on proper post-op care. There are several things patients will need to do after their surgery. Things to do during healing and recovery process after a beard transplant surgery:

It is crucial that patients keep their face and the donor site on the scalp as clean as possible to avoid infection and other potential side effects. Follow the cleaning instructions provided by your surgeon as part of your post-op care regimen. Antibiotic ointment should be applied as directed in order to help with the healing process.

Make sure that you sleep flat on your back for few days after the surgery. Some of the most common side effects after beard transplant surgery include:


Itchiness and irritation,

Swelling around treated areas,

Soreness of the face and scalp,

Redness of the face,

Numbness of the face and scalp

Patients should notice an improvement in side effects day to day, with side effects such as swelling and redness subsiding by the end of a week. Patients should not pick at any scabs or crusts that form as these are a natural part of recovery.


Activities to Avoid After Beard Transplant

After undergoing beard transplant surgery, be sure to avoid the following activities until advised otherwise by your surgeon:


Touching, rubbing, and scratching your chin and cheeks,

Exposing your face or scalp to direct sunlight,

Strenuous or vigorous physical activity,

Use of blood thinners or similar medications,

Smoking and use of tobacco products,

Drinking alcoholic beverages,



Around ten days after the surgery, patients can shave without being worried of damaging the donor hair follicles. Do not forget to be gentle as your face may still be slightly vulnerable.
