Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that involves moving individual hair follicles from one part of the body (the donor site) to bald or balding parts (the recipient site). It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. It this case, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to bald scalp. Likewise, it is also used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.


Since hair naturally grows in follicles that contain groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, today’s most advanced techniques transplant this naturally occurring 1–4 hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings. Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking nature hair for hair. Donor hair can be harvested in two very different ways;

1. Strip Harvesting or FUT – a strip of scalp is removed under local anesthesia, the wound is then sutured back together and this piece of scalp tissue is then cut in to small pieces of tissue called grafts which are then transplanted back in to the thinning area of the patient’s head. This method will leave a linear scar in the donor area, which should be covered by a patient’s hair (if long). The recovery period is around 2 weeks and will require the stitches to be removed by medical personnel.

2. Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE Harvesting Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE Harvesting – individual follicles of hair are removed under local anesthesia; this micro removal uses tiny punches of between 0.6mm and 1.25mm in diameter. Each follicle is then reinserted back in to the scalp in the thinning area using a micro blade. Because individual follicles are removed, only small, punctate scars remain and any post-surgical pain is minimized. As no suture removal is required, recovery from FUE is within 7 days. Follicular unit extraction, which is also known as FUE or FIT is a new method of performing follicular unit hair transplantation. It differs from widely known follicular unit hair transplant procedure, when a strip of donor tissue is removed and dissected under magnification. The FUE/FIT procedure uses a small diameter extraction tool (punch) to extract each follicular unit one by one.

With the Follicular Units Extraction (FUE or FIT) procedure individual hair follicular units grafts are extracted one by one using a tiny tool (punch). Often times the surgeon requires the patient to buzz cut a portion of their donor area so that they are able to see the patient’s scalp.

The most important difference between Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and the Strip Method is the technique used for extracting the follicular units. The main advantage of this technique is that follicular units are extracted directly from the scalp rather than in larger groups, which obviates the utilization of scalpel and stitching.

Is it a safe procedure?
Depending upon a number of extenuating circumstances and factors, a hair transplant can either be a great decision or possibly less than ideal.  Before committing to a hair transplant a person should be aware of certain benefits and risks associated with the procedure.
Improved appearance
Improved self-esteem

Side Effects of Hair Transplantation

There are some minor, often temporary side effects which can be directly associated with a hair transplant, which include the following:

• Bleeding:  some bleeding is completely normal and will cease with the application of light pressure.  Persistent bleeding is rare, occurring in about one of one-hundred cases, the use of additional stitches may be required

• Pain:  pain is minimal and lasts for a few days; most patients only require acetaminophen for moderate pain relief.

• Numbness:  some transient numbness has been reported and is an inevitable side effect which can last for 3-12 weeks post-operative.

• Hiccups:   can occur after surgery and the exact cause is not known.  Hiccups seem to be more frequent after a hair transplant than with a scalp reduction.  The condition is not serious and can be treated with medication from a physician.

• Itching:  some itching during healing is normal and can usually be alleviated with daily shampooing.

• Swelling:  swelling occurs in nearly all patients.  Usually the swelling occurs around the eyes and forehead, lasting for period of 3-5 days, being most prevalent on the fourth day.  The swelling is not harmful and will generally subside within a period of 7-days.

• Infection:  occurs in one in a thousand cases and is easily cured by using antibiotics.

• Scarring:  keloid scarring occurs only in those people who have a predisposition.  Some of the scarring is a result of hypertrophy to the point of “ridging.”

• Cysts:  one or more cysts can occur in the donor area when the grafts are inserted.  The cysts usually disappear and require no medical treatment.

• Neuralgia:  if one of the nerves in the facial area is damaged during surgery, the result can be numbness, tingling or a “pins and needles” sensation.  Rarely have patients had the condition last more than 1-4 weeks, prolonged or severe cases are extremely rare and usually completely disappear within a period of months.

Some people may wonder if a hair transplant will yield results and be an effective solution for baldness.  The transplanted hair is taken from one part of the body and transferred to another part.  The transplanted hair has its own characteristics, color, growth pattern, curl and re-growth and the vitality is provided by the rich blood supply from the scalp.  Results differ from person to person, but generally a hair transplants works as a solution to combat baldness in certain patients.

Permanent Hair RemovalBack to Top
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase and hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before.

Laser Hair Removal is based on the principle of ’Selective Photothermolysis’ 
The Laser energy is delivered to the treatment area in such a way as to maximize tissue damage to the hair follicle while sparing the skin and surrounding tissues.

About Melanin
Melanin is the pigment which gives colour to both hair and skin. Much more melanin is present in hair than in skin, and this property allows relatively more absorption of laser light energy in hair than in the skin.

Understanding Hair Growth
Each of your hair follicles is in one of 3 stages of growth at any given time. The “active growth” (anagen) phase, “regressive” (categen) phase, and “resting” (telogen) phase.

Laser hair removal is most effective at disabling “actively growing” hairs during treatment. It is during anagen that the hair shaft contains the greatest abundance of melanin, the target of the laser light. Many hair follicles are in their resting or regressive stages at any given time. The length of growth cycle also vary slightly by body area.            Your Laser Hair Removal plan will be customized to obtain optimal results. Depending on hair density, coarseness, growth cycle, and area to be treated, clients are counseled on the use of IPL, Diode or ND Yag laser for hair removal treatment.

Things to Know:

  • For hair reduction ND Yag lase, IPL, or Diode laser may be used.
  • Number of treatments required may be 6-8. Hormonal imbalance, pregnancy, and menopause may stimulate additional hair growth. In which case additional treatments may be necessary.
  • Although results vary from person to person, typically 80% reduction is expected.
  • Hair should not be plucked or waxed or bleached before treatment.
  • Lotions, cosmetics, and other skin preparations should be avoided on the day of the treatment.
  • Redness may occur but will go away 30 minutes after treatment.
  • Limited exposure to the sun before and after treatment is advisable.
  • This treatment may not be performed during pregnancy.

Top  Things about Laser Hair Removal

1. Laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair removal available.

2. Response varies between people and varies in the same person between different body areas

3. Most common areas treated in women are face, underarm, bikini line and legs. Most common areas treated in men are back, shoulders, upper arms and chest.

4. Laser hair removal works best on pigmented hair. Blonde, grey and red hairs do not respond as well.

Unwanted hair is a problem for many men and women. Advances in laser technology have resulted in the development of Lasers as a safe, fast, gentle and effective method of hair removal. At the Aakash Medical Centre we have a range of hair removal lasers, allowing us to optimize treatment by selecting the most appropriate laser for your hair type, skin colour and skin sensitivity.

Is the treatment permanent?
There is no doubt laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair removal available. The majority of patients have a significant reduction in hair growth in the treated area within 4-6 treatments. However response to laser hair removal varies considerably both between people and in the same person between areas. It is possible that some patients will require follow up treatments. Darker hair and lighter skin predict a better result however some people will have hair roots that are situated much deeper and are more resistant to treatment. Other patients may have hormonal factors stimulating hair growth and these patients may require maintenance treatment.

Can all types of hair be treated?
Laser hair removal works best on pigmented hair. Blonde, grey and red hair colours do not usually respond as well.

Can all skin types be treated?
We can treat all skin types however it is preferable that the area to be treated should not be recently suntanned at the time of treatment as you may get more skin reaction.

Can all areas of the body be treated?
We do not treat under the eyebrow as it is too close to the eyes. However, all other areas of the body can be treated. The most common areas treated in women include the face, underarms, bikini line and legs, and in men the back, shoulders, upper arms and chest.

How many treatments are necessary?
This will vary with the area treated, your type of hair and the level of improvement you require. The majority of patients have a significant reduction in hair growth in the treated area within 4 to 6 treatments. However, certain patients may require more treatments particularly those with coarse or light hair. It is important to realize that response to laser hair removal varies considerably between people and in the same person between different body areas. For example underarm and bikini line areas tend to be very responsive whereas facial areas are more likely to need ongoing treatments.

Is the Treatment Costly?

If compared to the lifetime cost of waxing it is much cheaper option.


Laser hair removal is now a real option for all men – not just athletes and body builders.
Waxing has been commonly used but has proved unsatisfactory because it is painful, temporary and is often associated with side effects of rashes and ingrown hairs.

One of the greatest advantages of the new “state of the art” Laser is its ability to treat large areas, such as back or chest, quickly and comfortably. It can also be used safely on delicate areas such as the face where many men choose to treat between the eyebrows (i.e. monobrow), upper cheek area, ears or the neck (shaving rash).

A series of treatments is required to thin out and reduce your hair.
1. Laser Hair removal
2. Waxing – painful, temporary and with side effects.
3. Large areas can be covered easily.


Some women have excess facial or body hair which is difficult to manage. This may be caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors.

Other women have normal hair distribution but find that waxing or shaving is unsatisfactory because of rashes or ingrown hairs. Or it may be simply because laser hair removal is a very attractive and economic option compared to a lifetime of waxing.

Facial hair has been the commonest area treated but we now find women are treating ALL parts of the body. Extended bikini line and Brazilians are now possible.
