What are biofibre hair implants?

Biofibre hair implant is a procedure that gives immediate results for both men and women suffering from alopecia helping people achieve a full head of natural looking hair. Alopecia is a hair loss condition that causes patches of baldness and is found to mostly affect teenagers and young adults.

Alopecia can have a huge impact on an individual’s life as it may lead to them feeling unattractive. No cure has been found for the hair loss condition so far, therefore hair restoration treatments are the most effective options available today.

Biofibre hair implant is a very simple, safe and effective hair thickening procedure giving immediate and long-lasting results. Best of all, biofibre are undetectable and can meet any hair colour, length and shape requirements.

No procedure is better than the other and the choice solely depends on the needs and preferences of the individual and therefore the option between implant and transplant must be discussed with your surgeon.

The main differences between implants and transplants are:

  • Biofibre hair implant gives instant aesthetic results, while results from hair transplant are usually visible after 9-12 months.
  • An implant is a good option to treat alopecia at any age and stage, whereas transplant is more suitable for mild alopecia.
  • Biofibre hair implant will need to be maintained to keep the desired density, while transplants only needs a few sessions for a long-lasting result.
  • Implants are suitable for those who are suffering from severe alopecia or hair thinning, whereas transplants are suitable for those who are suffering mild alopecia or male/female pattern baldness.

Can I have biofibre hair implants?

You will need to be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with a biofibre hair transplant.

We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.

Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.

Biofibre hair transplant is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.

  • For both men and women who may be suffering from alopecia
  • A good candidate has to have a healthy scalp
  • It is important to test that the candidate is not allergic to biofibre before deciding to go ahead with the procedure

Prior to undergoing biofibre hair implants, you will need to have a consultation with the surgeon. They will be able to assess whether or not you are an eligible candidate, or whether other hair transplant options are more suitable for you.

What happens during the biofibre hair transplant procedure?

Biofibre hair implant is a safe and simple procedure carried out under local anaesthesia, which means the patient will be very relaxed and comfortable throughout. The procedure is performed with a specific implant tool that is used to hook the biofibre and inserted to the scalp one by one. This is repeated until the desired look is achieved and enough hair is inserted.

Benefits Of Biofibre Hair Implant

  • Immediate and natural looking results achievable
  • Simple, safe and quick procedure
  • Zero downtime so the patient can go back to their normal activities almost immediately
  • Does not require high maintenance of the biofibre hair strands

Drawbacks Of Biofibre Hair Implant

  • Re-implantation of biofibre necessary to maintain the aesthetic results obtained
  • Requires a hygienic aftercare to keep the scalp clean
  • The procedure is not recommended for people who have a sensitive scalp or suffers from scalp diseases.

What can I expect during the recovery period?

After your implant insertion, you can almost immediately go back to your normal activities. However, the final implantation of biofibre hair will be completed after 20-30 days following the initial session. In most cases, only about 800-1500 biofibre hair implant can be done per session. If you desire more density then you will have to go back for another session, which can be done after 8-15 days. Generally, 2500 biofibre hair is known to give the most desirable result.

The amount of time the results lasts depends on many factors, but in most cases, people experience 10% of the loss of implanted fibres.
