At Hair Transplants Melbourne we move your hair follicles from one area of the scalp (the safe zone) to another area. The safe zone contains hair roots (follicles) that are not part of hair loss patterns and will regrow permanently when placed in another area. It is not the skin of the hair loss area that is the problem in balding, it is the follicles or roots that are weakened in that area. Follicles from the safe zone will grow in any skin, even scars.
Another person cannot donate hair for transplants, not even a family member because they would be rejected by the body’s immune system.
As soon as the new follicles grow in their new location, they are healthy, normal and active and will continue to grow for the rest of your life. The re-located hair is your hair and grows totally as normal.
