Their use is indicated in men older than 18 years with mild to moderate hair loss. Several well controlled studies have proven the effi- cacy of these medications. After 3-6 months of use, slowed hair loss, stabilization, or increased scalp coverage can be appreciated with either medication and results are clearly evident by 1 year. Dense regrowth is uncommon and neither medication can regrow hair in completely bald areas. Early intervention, when thinning is first noticed and hairs are incompletely miniaturized, produces the best results. Treatment must be continued indefinitely to maintain the benefits.

Donor areas are the places on the head from which hair is taken. There are a number of techniques used in hair replacement surgery - from flap transfers to single follicular unit grafting. For best results, multiple techniques may be used. If you have questions for Dr. Verret, send them to Transplant techniques, such micro-grafts, follicular unit transfer, and single unit transfers are generally performed on patients who desire a fuller, thicker head of hair. These techniques produce a much more natu- ral appearance than older techniques of plug grafting. In follicular unit hair transplantation, a donor strip of hair is harvested Events and Specials
excising a narrow strip of scalp from the donor area-an area at the back of the head that is resistant to hair loss. This strip of hair is then divided into individual follicular units under a microscope. Each follicular unit from the donor strip contains one to four hairs follicles. Follicular unit transplantation is an extremely efficient manner of hair restoration because several thousand hair grafts can be obtained from one small, thin donor strip.
