Biofibre Hair Transplant India – Cost and Process Involved

Biofibre Implant

Biofibre hair transplant term is misnomer. Right term will be Biofibre implant, though these both terms are used interchangeably by many people.

 

Biofibre implant is a synthetic nylon fibre that inserted inside the skin to mimic the natural hair. Biofibre hair implant is used to treat alopecia. It helps in covering the baldness. Biofibre is a biocompatible synthetic hair. It is undetectable to natural hair. It can meet the desired colour, length and shape.

 

Biofibres have a reversible knot which helps in holding it to skin. It is a worthwhile hair restoration technique for alopecia and hair thinning. It is recommenced if the hair transplant is not possible because of the limited donor area. It is a safe simple and light aesthetic surgery.

Another benefit of Biofibre hair implant is that it can be used both male and female patients. Also most importantly it helps in obtaining immediate results.

 

Biofibres have a reversible knot which is inserted in the skin using disposable manual implanter. Direction and angulation of biofibre is important for most aesthetic and natural looking results.  To acheive gradual aesthetic improvement a quantity of 800 to 1500 biofibre is suggested per single session.

 

Test Patch

Before doing large sessions of biofibre, a test patch of 100 fibres is recommended. This helps in knowing your body’s acceptability of biofibres. After the test patch, a waiting period of 1 month is advisable. If there is no untoward reaction of the skin then large sessions of biofibre can be performed.

 

Procedure of Biofibre hair implant

Procedure is started by giving local anaesthesia. A small needle is used to avoid pain to patient. Local anaesthesia makes the skin numb. 1 sterile packet of biofibres has 2 small packets which contain 50 biofibres each. Biofibres can be counted by patient before the procedure. We at Prime Hair Studio and Cosmetic Clinic, handover the empty packets to patients at the end of procedure for more transparency.

 

Biofibre Hair Transplant

 

 

 

We advise to gradually increase the density of fibres over multiple sessions. It is advisable to  implant 1200 fibres as a first session. Over the next sessions, density of Biofibres can be increased. Second session of biofibre hair implant can be performed after 3 to 4 weeks in the same area or after 1 to 2 weeks in a different area.

Requirement or number of fibres required depends on the expectations of the individual. As these biofibre are fine, more numbers are required to get desired results.

Infection is seen as redness and discharge of fluid or pus. Localised infection can be treated with medicines or by removal of infected fibre. Biofibre can be extracted or removed in the whole form if infected.
