Usually during the 5th year, the hair will […]

This article's categories and tags:

Propecia (finasteride) is a medication that is used to help prevent male pattern baldness or hair loss (androgenic alopecia) that affects the vertex and the mid-scalp area of the head.

This article's categories and tags:

The most common type of hair graft used in hair transplantation today is known as a “follicular unit.” The follicular unit is the most popular graft used because of its natural appearance in recreating normal hair growth appearance in “follicular units.” Hairs on your scalp naturally grow groups of 1 to 3 hairs in a single unit, and these follicular units are intact when they get transplanted to a recipient area. Thus since this type of graft leaves hair in their natural state of 1 to 3 hairs, the transplant will look more natural and undetectable. The follicular unit hair […]
