Hair loss affects 70% of Irish men and 40% of Irish women. Androgenetic alopecia, is the most common form of premature hair loss, and it happens as a result of a by-product of testosterone known as DHT.
The hair at the front, temples and crown of the head contains Androgen Receptors that make them highly sensitive to DHT. Follicles containing hair in these areas begin to shrink; producing ever-thinner and finer hair until they stop producing hair altogether.
Hair restoration surgery takes hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding from the back of the head, and relocates them to the areas on the top of the head. As this transplanted hair is immune to the effects of DHT, it remains resistant to baldness and gives the patient lifelong results.
