Synthetic hair implant
What is synthetic hair implant treatment?

Synthetic hair implantation, also known as artificial hair implantation is a procedure that involves the implantation of synthetic hair in a person’s scalp. The materials with which the synthetic hairs are formed are created from artificial fiber and are completely biocompatible. They are also much more strong and durable than natural hair.

Why is the procedure?

Synthetic hair implantation is suitable for those people who need to have large scale hair transplant requirements but have already exhausted possible donor areas from where hair can be sourced. Anyone looking to achieve quick hair growth results can also opt for this procedure.

What are the indications of this treatment?

Anyone struggling with hair loss and have limited donor areas in the body can choose to undergo synthetic hair implantation.

Things to Know

There is no specific age group associated with the procedure.
The procedure is safe but patients must undergo periodic checkups to ensure that no complications arise. It is also important to have annual implant retouches so that the hair looks great.

There can be a number of side effects associated with the synthetic hair implantation procedure. Some of them have been mentioned below.

  • The immune system of your body may reject the synthetic hair completely since they are basically foreign bodies.
  • You may develop some allergic reactions to the procedure.
  • Sebum plug formation may occur around the base of hair fibers and therefore the hairs should be properly cleaned at all times. Unless this is done, it can lead to formation of cysts, inflammations and infections.
  • Itching on the scalp may lead you to scratch the area, which in turn can dislodge and mess up the arrangement of the artificial hairs.
  • Regular re-implants in your scalp every year may eventually give rise to a heavily scarred scalp.
  • Special hair shampoos should be used for proper maintenance of the synthetic hair.
  • The natural hairs surrounding the operated area may get destroyed due to the procedure.
  • Multiple implants can also damage the hair follicles and lead to scar tissues and cicatricial alopecia.
  • The reimplantsmay cause poor blood circulation that prevents hair growth and also minimize the rate of survival of the existing hair.
  • Patients may also experiencemigraine-like headaches the day following the procedure.
  • It may also lead to cancer in some cases.
