Capillary Medicine Unit
The Capillary Medicine Unit is one of the areas in which Ilahy is at the forefront; directed by Dr. Ramiro Yane, aesthetic physician, specialist in hair restoration with extensive experience in clinics throughout Spain, offers the most advanced treatments in capillary medicine.
The key: personalized treatment
In the Ilahy capillary medicine unit, each patient is considered unique, establishing the characteristics and preferences of each personalized treatment. During the first consultation, the doctor performs the tests and actions needed to make an accurate diagnosis and establish the most appropriate treatment depending on the particularities of each patient.
Hair transplants can be performed on any part of the body where there is or has been hair. There are two types of techniques used for hair transplantation:
Technical FUSS or ‘strip’
This technique involves removing a strip of scalp tissue and then dissecting it, separating the follicular units to be implemented in the area to restore. Then the wound is closed by suture trichophytic aesthetics, allowing that the residual scar is an almost imperceptible fine line where, over time, the hair grows.
The follicular units are removed one by one by microincisions, less than 1mm, which are made using a specific instrument. It works on a superficial level and leaves no scar.
Although both techniques are interesting, and it depends which is most appropriate for each patient, some of the advantages of the FUE technique over the classical “pulls” are:
- Minimally invasive nature.
- No scar, allowing the patient to have very short hair.
- Removing hair from other parts of the body, BHR (body hair transplant or transplant body hair).
- Simple and quick postop.
Treatments with Platelet rich plasma
In recent years, the study of platelets and biological mediators have shown that what they contain has permits us to create a new type of medical treatment based on the preparation of autologous plasma (extracted from the patient) which applied to certain injuries, promotes the regeneration of tissue. It is the area known as Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Bioengineering.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) applied capillary medicine, involves removal of a small sample of blood from the patient, and then, through a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma and place it on to the scalp through microinjections.
PRP stimulates the formation of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and increases vascularization in the hair follicle, resulting in increased hair growth (anagen phase), noticing a greater hair thickness.
Minoxidil and Finasteride treatments to prevent hair loss
One option that we should value to combat hair loss are pharmacological treatments. In this sense there are different pharmaceuticals on the market that offer good results.
Minoxidil is a drug used in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in both men and women, to stimulate hair growth and stop hair loss. It can be used in combination with other treatments used to combat hair loss, and even used after a hair restoration, with indication from the doctor.
It is the first drug used to treat male hair loss. It acts by slowing, at the level of the hair follicles, the action of the androgens causing acceleration of the hair cycle. Combination with the use of topical Minoxidil usually increases the effectiveness in the treatment of male androgenic alopecia. The results are slow and can even stop the hair loss process. It can be used in combination with other treatments used to combat hair loss, as well, after a hair restoration, with indication from a doctor.
