Your Journey to Hair Transformation

 

Learn what you can do to restore your hair
The reality is that hair restoration in anyone’s life is a journey, and getting off to the right start is
extremely important.

Step 1

Detect your hair loss

For most people, finding a bald spot is a wake-up call for a hair loss treatment. About 70% of men suffer from some form of male pattern baldness by the age of 60. For women, 50% will suffer from hair loss by the age of 50.

Good news is that with hair transplants, you have a medically proven treatment to solve your worries permanently. The earlier you take action, the more hair you keep.

Step 2

Due diligence

Information about causes of baldness and treatments (surgical/ non-surgical) are widely available, and there are many options including low-cost surgeries offered by hundreds of clinics globally, most popularly in Turkey. Any clinic that offers a cheap transplant is highly likely to use technicians (not trained doctors), low quality instruments, deliver low graft survival rates and compromise on safety protocols.

At Evolved Clinics in Perth and Brisbane, our commitment to you is to provide a hair restoration service with the best-in-class medical care.

Step 5

Your DFI procedure

When we have agreed a surgery date that suits your schedule, we will run some vital checks to ready you before the surgery.

Your DFI surgery will take place in the comfort of our clinics situated in discreet yet posh locations of South Perth and Brisbane.

Although our microsurgeries are performed in a sterile Operation Theatre (akin to one in a super specialty hospital), the environment is kept comfortable and pleasant. You will be under local anesthesia, completely numb, similar to an injection at the dentist.

Our
Technique

We at Evolved Clinics in Perth and Brisbane practise DFI (Direct Follicle Insertion) Technique on our patients.
It is a complete care system, taking the best from Direct Hair Implant and FUE techniques.

1

Extraction

Extraction

Direct Follicle Insertion is combining the extreme skill set of a surgeon trained in Manual extraction, and biohacking/supercharging them with the latest in motorised technology. Simply put, our hair transplant doctor can extract grafts safer, faster and with the smallest of micro instruments, leaving donor areas virtually unmarked.

2

Graft Preservation

Graft Preservation

Then we employ advanced graft tissue preservation techniques (medical terminology for graft survivability) through the use of chilled graft trays, ATP, Growth Factor Therapy and Hypothermasol. This creates an environment where the grafts feel like it's still in the body. Nothing is ever left to chance, as you only have 1 donor area.

3

Implantation

Implantation

Once we get the hairs you need, each graft is carefully placed into an ultra-fine implanter and we artistically insert each graft at the correct angle, depth and direction, ensuring natural placement.

“Every patient at Evolved benefits from being the only surgical patient of the day, receiving full attention of the operating team.”

Step 6

Executive-level Aftercare

At Evolved Clinics in Perth and Brisbane, we pride ourselves on our reputation for continuos aftercare – not just in the days, months and weeks after your procedure, but for years afterwards. You will be given all the advice and prescription you need following your DFI surgery.

We strongly encourage you to do regular follow-ups with us over the next 1 year of your procedure so that we can carefully monitor hair growth progress and prevent any potential problems.

But far beyond that, we see our patients as lifelong recipients of our hair care service.

Do You Still Have Any Doubts? We Are Ready To Answer It All

What are the main causes of hair loss?

Hair loss occurs when the cycle of hair growth is disrupted, resulting in the hair shedding faster than usual, re-growing poorly or not growing back at all. The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary male and female pattern baldness. However, the following conditions can cause hair loss, or alopecia, in men and women:

  • Medical conditions, including thyroid problems and anaemia
  • Drugs and medication side-effects
  • Stress and trauma
  • Dietary disorders
  • Excessive tension on the hair scalp from wearing certain hairstyles, such as tight braiding (traction alopecia)
  • Hair-pulling disorder in which there is an irresistible urge to pull out hair (trichotillomania)
  • Immune system attacking hair follicles to cause patchy hair loss (alopecia areata)
  • Scarring alopecia or scalp infections, requiring careful dermatological management

How does a hair transplant work?

A hair transplant involves taking healthy hair follicles from a part of the scalp where hair is genetically programmed to keep growing for life and transplanting them to the areas affected by hair loss. These newly implanted hairs will last a lifetime.

How painful is surgery?

The only part of the procedure during which you will feel any pain is the local anesthesia with numbing injections. These are similar to injections at the dentist. The injections take around 5 to 10 minutes to administer in the donor and recipient areas. We apply a vibrating massage device to the area being injected in order to “distract the nerves” and reduce the discomfort from the needle. The local anesthesia provides around 2 to 3 hours of numbing effect on the scalp. We will need to repeat the local anaesthesia but aim to do so while the skin is still numb so that the injections are not felt.

What are the risks associated with undergoing the DFI Procedure?

It is essential to understand that while DFI Hair Transplant Procedures can provide significant benefits and satisfactory results, they also carry inherent risks. We recommend you to consult with a qualified Trichologist and/or Hair Transplant Doctor before making any decisions regarding DFI Hair Transplant Procedures.

A detailed coverage of associated risks are available at the Disclaimer section

What sort of aftercare is needed?

When you leave Evolved Hair Clinic after your treatment, we’ll provide you with everything you need to take care of your grafts in the first few weeks, including instructions for washing your hair and medication to manage any initial discomfort. We provide state-of the-art Liposomal ATP aftercare sprays which optimise the healing and growth of your precious grafts

The day after the procedure our friendly staff will carry out a complimentary no contact hair wash. Patients are advised to wait at least three days after the procedure before undertaking a contact hair wash. By around day seven the patient’s head should be scab free.

But far beyond that, we see our patients as lifelong beneficiaries of our hair care service. You’ll be able to stay in contact with us for ongoing support and help on monitoring your hair growth progress, looking after your scalp, and preventing any potential problems.

You’ll be able to return to us for free check-ups and maintenance procedures, giving you a lifetime of professional hair care.

What preparation is needed before a hair transplant?

You need to ensure you are full informed of all the options and what they will involve before you decide on any one course of action. In an initial telephone and then face-to-face meetings at Evolved Clinic, our hair specialist and doctor will listen to you and take the time to understand your particular situation and your goals.

We’ll give you clear guidance on all of the options available to you, the pros and cons of each and the costs involved. We’ll also give you full information about the kind of result you can realistically expect to achieve.

Before recommending any particular course of treatment, we’ll take into account your age, your medical history and your general health and wellbeing. You can enter our surgery safe in the knowledge that you are receiving not just the best possible hair restoration treatment, but the best possible medical care.

Which type of hair transplant is considered the best?

All the different types of hair transplant are extremely effective with good looking results, but different methods have different advantages.

DFI technique requires only a local anaesthetic and is virtually pain-free. The whole process can take between 4 and 12 hours depending on the size of the recipient area and the number of grafts that need to be transplanted.

DFI has the advantage of avoiding the linear scar left by FUT as individual follicular units are taken only leaving micro dots which are covered by hair. Because it leaves minimal scarring DFI is ideal for people who like to keep their hair short, such as a number 1 or number 2 haircut.

Who will be carrying out my hair transplant?

Our Hair Transplant Doctor completes 100% of the surgery.

What can I do during the procedure?

Patients find the procedure comfortable and can watch a range of films and TV shows on our various streaming services. Some prefer to listen to music or have a snooze.

Will I be asleep or awake for surgery?

All surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you are awake for the whole procedure. However, we offer a mild oral sedative which helps to relieve anxiety and helps you to relax during the procedure.

Do you perform non-shaven DFI?

This is up to the individual, the donor area needs to be shaved to a #1, but the top (recipient area) can be left untouched.

In certain cases, we perform non-shaven recipient area. Due to the increased technical challenges associated with non-shaven, we tend to restrict use of the technique to smaller cases i.e. 2500 hairs max.

What method do you use to extract the grafts?

We use a variety of micro punch devices depending on the hair and skin characteristics of the patient. In most cases, our Master Surgeon uses a handheld, motorised, hybrid punch, controlled by a foot pedal.

How long will it take to recover after an DFI hair transplant?

7 days after a DFI procedure most patients are free of scabs and display little or no signs that surgery has taken place (other than the new graft stubble).

When does the transplanted hair start to grow?

The newly transplanted hairs will typically shed 2-4 weeks post-op and there will be a period of waiting for the new hairs to re-appear. In most cases, some of the transplanted hair will start to appear 2-3 months after a hair transplant.

When will I see my final results?

Most patients see their near full results around 9 months to one year after a hair transplant. In some cases, patients can be a “slow/late grower”. These patients may have to wait 18 months to see full maturation of the transplanted hairs.

What are the recovery risks associated with the DFI Procedure?

It is essential to understand that while DFI Hair Transplant Procedures can provide significant benefits and satisfactory results, they also carry inherent risks. We recommend you to consult with a qualified Trichologist and/or Hair Transplant Doctor before making any decisions regarding DFI Hair Transplant Procedures. A detailed coverage of associated risks are available at the Disclaimer section

How long after a hair transplant can I return to exercise?

This does vary depending on your procedure but, in most cases, light exercise can be restarted 6 days after surgery and full exercise can be restarted at day 10 post op.

How long will the post-op redness last after a DFI procedure?

This does vary from patient to patient but most patients do not have redness in their scalp after day 10-14 post-op. Patients with fair skin types can retain skin redness for longer.

Can I drive home on the evening of surgery?

You will not be able to drive yourself home on the evening of the surgery. It is fine to drive home the following morning.
