Well, with over 5000 customers already serviced by our clinic and counting, we’ve counted up our Most Frequently Asked Questions section as well. This basic list will give you a glimpse into few top questions that almost all applicants tend to ask.
Q: How does hair transplantation work?
A: Hair transplantation is a not-so-complicated process revolving around relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head.
Once performed, the after effects of this process apply for a lifetime. That’s all because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness.
And that’s regardless of where they are relocated to, which eventually gives you “balding immortality” after one of our treatments!
Q: Will my hair transplant results look nice and natural?
A: When such a tricky procedure as hair transplantation is done right, the result may amaze. It can be so natural that even your hair stylist will not know that you’ve had it done!
But the craftsmanship and experience of that multitude of hair transplant surgeons do vary widely, as do their results.
It’s important to pick a right procedure and clinic. That kind of right choice will ensure that you will get completely natural looks afterward.
