Research is at the heart of everything we do at Eugenix Hair Sciences. From pioneering the Direct Hair Transplant (DHT) technique that significantly increases the survival rate of hair grafts to using body hair as the substitutedonor hair, Eugenix Hair Sciences is at the forefront of cutting-edge research in the field of hair transplant.
Our founders, Dr. Pradeep Sethi and Dr. Arika Bansal are avid readers of medical journals and articles and stay abreast of the latest surgical techniques and research in the field.
Research procedure: To attain the best outcome of DHT, we began our research and transplanted hair on the scalp of 29 patients with this technique. The sole purpose of conducting this research was to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of direct hair transplantation.
The patients willing to undergo hair transplantation by the technique of follicular unit extraction were enrolled for the surgery. After the administration of local anesthesia, the recipient sites were created. Thereafter, the processes of scoring the skin with a motorized punch, graft extraction and implantation were performed simultaneously. These patients were followed up to look for the time period of initiation of hair growth, the growth achieved at the end of 6-8 months and any adverse events. The results of patients with noticeable improvement in the photographs and reduction in baldness grade were taken as 'good', whereas, in other patients, it was classified as 'poor'.
Results: All patients were males with ages ranging from 21 to 66 years (median 30 years). Twenty-six patients had androgenetic alopecia, 1 patient had traction alopecia and 2 patients had scarring alopecia. Twenty-seven patients showed 'good' results, whereas 2 patients showed 'poor' results.
Conclusion: Direct hair transplantation is a simple and feasible modification in the follicular unit extraction technique. It is an efficacious surgical treatment modality for baldness.
At Eugenix Hair Sciences, we offer a state-of-the-art facility and use the latest technology pioneered by us, to make the hair transplant procedure seamless and minimally invasive for our patients.
