Professional Hair Transplant Solutions for Black or African Hair Restoration
There are many men who experience hair loss, or even baldness, a common condition that is also known as alopecia. Black or African men face this problem too and there aren’t many clinics where surgeries that treat this type of condition are performed. Black women can also suffer hair loss, often due to braiding the hair too tightly. Known as tension alopecia, mild cases can be treated naturally, but for the more severely affected, professional hair restoration techniques will solve the problem.
Fortunately, at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic we have specialised surgeons who are highly trained to perform black or African hair restoration surgeries with great precision and using professional equipment. If you are a part of the African community you can leave all your fears behind because our hair specialists are renowned for their impressive and extraordinary results.
There are two hair restoration techniques applied at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic, one surgical and one non-surgical. The non-surgical hair transplant procedure is chosen by those people who don’t want or do not have the time to have a complex surgery performed on them. In order to hide the lack of hair growth the non-surgical procedure consists of the placement of a thin, transparent membrane with human hair on the patient’s scalp, with all aspects taken into consideration. It will have to match the skin and hair colour and texture and our specialised surgeons will make sure that the membrane is attached perfectly, so the patient can go back to his/her life and return to the activities and sports that he/she likes to practice.
The surgical hair transplant procedure for black and African hair restoration treatment is divided in two methods, the follicular unit extraction or FUE hair transplant and the follicular unit transplantation or FUT hair transplant. Both approaches use the same technique, apart from one difference. Both of these surgical hair transplant cosmetic procedures extract 1 to 4 strands of hair from the back of the patient’s head, which is called the donor area and transplant those strands to the so-called recipient area, the one affected by alopecia. During the FUE surgery the follicular units are extracted individually and in the case of the FUT surgery the follicular units are collected using strip-harvesting, meaning that an entire strip of tissue containing the future hair grafts is collected from the donor area.
As it was mentioned before, the black or African hair transplant treatment is more difficult than the regular one, because the members of these communities have natural curly hair which is harder to handle. This is why we recommend our Renew Skin & Health Clinic because here the specialised hair transplant surgeons have the expertise to ensure you benefit from our exceptional cosmetic results.
