Our Capillary Medicine unit is headed by expert trichologists specialized in hair transplants

We offer the best specialized diagnosis.

In our Hair Restoration Treatment and Transplant Unit, we continuosly work and research to be able to always offer the latest, most effective, and least invasive treatments and procedures available.

The basis of a good treatment lies in a personalized diagnosis and for that our hair restoration and transplant unit recommends the best treatments to follow after performing the following tests:

Sonographic capillary analysis

Trichologist experts carry out a medical evaluation of the patient.

State-of-the-art ultrasounds study the hair and condition of our patients’ scalp.

Tricho scan Study

Trichologist experts carry out a medical evaluation of the patient.

  • The Trichoscan allows our specialists to analyze in situ hair density and the percentage of follicles in the growth phase (anagen) or resting phase (telogen) in a non-invasive manner and without any hair removal. It is the only method that combines the use of an epiluminiscence microscope with the automatic analysis of digital images, thus allowing our specialists to archive digital images to study the evolution of the treatment and measure its results.
  • TrichoScan is a vital tool in the evaluation and measurement of results in patients who have undergone a FUE or NON SHAVEN FUE hair graft.

Our hair restoration treatments include:

 

  • MEDICAL ORAL AND TOPICAL TREATMENT:
    • Clinically proven drugs: Finasteride, Avidart, Flutamide,Dianben…
    • Hair Recovery: tablets that stimulate hair growth and help to inhibit the 5alfa reductase, a determining factor in alopecia.

 

 

  • MESO ACTIVE RMI
    • At the Ricart Medical Institute we have developed MesoActive RMI, a pharmaceutical compounding injected directly into the scalp, made from a “cocktail” of vitamins and clinically proven drugs used for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia such as minoxidil, ethinylestradiol, dutasteride, and finasteride that stimulate tissue regeneration and hair follicle growth.

 

  • The MesoActive RMI is administered, with no need for anesthesia, via microinjections to the scalp using a very fine needle. The patients are able to return to their normal activities and work right after the mesotherapy session.

 

 

  • PLATELET RISCH PLASMA MESOTHERAPY (PRP)
    • Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an effective treatment in fighting hair loss due to the intense cellular regeneration it generates. A small sample of the patient’s blood is taken and is treated in a centrifuge that separates the enriched cells, which are to be later injected into the dermis of the scalp using a thin needle. The PRP, also rich in bioactive proteins and growth factors is administered in multiple microinjections that stimulate tissue regeneration and hair follicle growth.

 

  • The patients are able to return to their normal activities and work right after the platelet mesotherapy session.

 

  • HAIR FOLLICLE TRANSPLANTATION
    • We, at the Ricart Medical Institute, are specialists in hair transplantation and we backed by our track record.

 

  • The manual instrument used for the mechanized graft extraction technique we perform allows us to remove hair from all the donor areas of the head, as well as from body donor areas (legs and arms) and uses incision diameters of 0.8mm or less in the extraction of follicular units. Unlike motorized or robotic hair transplantation techniques such as the Artas that uses incision diameters of more than 1 mm for the extraction of follicular units and are only capable of removing hair from the back of the head.

 

We use the following hair transplantation techniques:

 

  • FUE HAIR GRAFT
    • With the FUE technique, the extraction of individual follicles during hair transplantation is carried out in a less invasive manner. Using a 0,8 mm punch, the hair follicles are harvested one by one leaving small wounds that do not require suturing and that spontaneously heal without leaving posterior visible scars.
    • After the follicles are extracted, implantation in the recipient area is then carried out, following the design previously agreed upon with the patient.
    • This technique is more time consuming, due to individual removal of each of the follicular units.
    • The FUE hair transplantation technique allows the extraction of individual hair follicles from various donor areas after each area has been shaven. This technique is performed without suturing or cutting of the donor area, and no invasive surgery is necessary.

 

 

  • NON SHAVEN FUE HAIR GRAFT
    • With this technique, the extraction of the follicular units is less invasive. Using a 0,8 mm punch, the hair follicles are harvested one by one leaving small wounds that do not require suturing and that spontaneously heal without leaving posterior visible scars.
    • After the follicles are extracted, implantation in the recipient area is then carried out, following the design previously agreed upon with the patient.
    • This technique is more time consuming, due to individual removal of each of the follicular units.
    • The NON SHAVEN FUE HAIR GRAFT extraction technique allows the individual extraction of hair follicles from different areas without having to shave the donor area. It is performed without suturing or cutting of the donor area, and no invasive surgery is necessary.
    • This technique allows the patients to return to their daily activities a few days after transplantation, since the procedure goes completely unnoticed because no areas have been shaven.

 

THE FUE or NON SHAVEN FUE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION PROCEDURE:

 

  • -) DESIGN: In this phase, the surgeon draws on the patient’s scalp to determine the areas to be implanted. A natural design is created according to the degree of alopecia, the capacity of the donor areas, age, and preferences of the patient. The main objective is a natural look in harmony with the face.
    • -) ANESTHESIA TO DONOR AREA: the surgeon administers a local anesthetic to the donor area before beginning the extraction of the follicular units.
    • -) GRAFT HARVEST: grafts are individually harvested using a punch instrument.
    • -) ANESTHESIA TO RECEPTOR AREA: Again, anesthesia is administered, this time to the receptor area before beginning the transplantation.
    • -) TRANSPLANTATION: In this phase the grafts are inserted into the receptor areas following the initial design.
    • -) END OF THE PROCEDURE. POSTOPERATIVE RECOMMENDATIONS: Once the procedure has been completed, the surgeon provides the patient with detailed information regarding postoperative care of both the donor and receptor areas for the following weeks.
