Juaneda Hospital has the first trichology and hair transplant unit in the Balearic Islands, consisting of dermatologists
Whether for environmental, life or stress reasons, alopecia is a growing problem. For this reason, and with the aim of treating the high number of alopecia cases, we have established the first trichology and hair transplant unit with dermatologists in the hospitals of Juaneda on the Balearic Islands.
We treat the patient with a comprehensive approach to their problem and offer both medication and medical treatments such as injections of dutasteride, platelet-rich plasma and, if needed, hair transplants.
Demand has increased in recent years, making trichology a booming science. A field of dermatology in which there is a lot of research and many innovative treatments.
At the Tricology and Hair Transplant Unit at Juaneda Hospitals, we perform the most innovative treatments from both a medical and surgical point of view. We personalize the treatment according to the patient and alopecia.
The fact that the unit consists of dermatologists is an added value in hair transplantation as androgenetic alopecia is a chronic disease and it is essential to make a good diagnosis and establish appropriate medical treatment to improve the outcome of hair transplantation.
In addition, it is important in the subsequent aftercare to do a good follow-up treatment to maintain one's own hair.
When should you consult a specialist?
Hair loss is a physiological process that occurs in 100% of the population. In fact, we can lose up to 100 follicles per day in a physiological way.
If you lose this amount of hair every day, there is no reason to be alarmed. It becomes disturbing when you notice a noticeable loss of density.
It often happens that at certain times of the year, such as in autumn or during stress, the hair suffers a deepening in its follicular cycle process. Then there is an increase in autumn, which is usually reversible and ends after 3 / 6 months.
In cases where hair loss does not stop, you should seek advice to be sure that it is a pathological loss.
However, there is no specific key symptom necessary for us to react accordingly. The concerns of patients are individual.
To hide alopecia, patients act differently. For example, patients who avoid being photographed from above, or patients who avoid swimming or even changing their hairstyle.
In these cases, we recommend that you consult a specialist for a personalized diagnosis. And although alopecia is a chronic and progressive process, it is important to act when the loss of hair density is obvious.
New techniques that focus on naturalness and excellent results
There are two techniques that apply equally to hair transplants:
FUSS or strip technique: This is a technique we have been practicing for years. It consists of taking a strip of scalp from the back of the head, separating it into individual follicular units and then transplanting each follicular unit individually.The removal is done at the back of the head, where most of the hair is full. Only 5-8% of hair density is removed, which is not perceptible to the human eye.
This technique is indicated for patients with long hair who do not want to shave their hair.
FUE technique: It is based on the single image of the follicular units that do not go through the process of division, because we remove them individually and transplant them into the reception area.
This technique is ideal for the reconstruction of hairlines and smaller areas. Since this method is absolutely scar-free, it is recommended for patients with short hairstyles.
What distinguishes both techniques is the form of extraction, but the result is the same in both cases: 100% natural and satisfactory.Juaneda, always near you.
