Hair Restoration Transplant is the only effective surgical treatment for baldness correction. It effectively treats baldness of androgenic origin, caused by the destructive action of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a endogenous hormone, on the hair
Hair transplantation is an autologous surgical procedure (of the same individual), with hair being transfer from certain areas of the scalp to the bald area, reconstructing it.
A set of hair strands forms a structure called Follicle, which is inserted along the layers of the skin. These very small follicular units, about 0.8 mm in diameter and about 4 mm in length, are isolated one by one and implanted or placed adequately and effectively, singularly, in the bald area. Around 4 to 6 months after surgery, the growth of these transplanted hairs, begins to become visible. These transplanted hairs do not suffer the androgenic action of DHT, which means, that, after their growth, they will not fall for that same reason.
At Clínica REPLACE, there are two techniques available for transplantation: ARTAS® Robot 9x or Manual FUE:
Hair Restoration with ARTASⓇ ROBOT 9X
ARTAS robotic system is the first and only robotic hair transplant in the world. Developed by researchers and leading physicians in the field of hair transplantation, the ARTAS ™ system uses state-of-the-art robotic technology, which noticeably assists physicians in performing difficult, repetitive and accurate movements, reducing manual unevenness and producing enhanced results. Unlike the older hair restoration procedures, it leaves no marks or scars visible, making the procedure virtually undetectable. It creates natural results and appearance without the side effects and recovery time of older procedures.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUE)
Another of the hair transplant techniques used at Clínica REPLACE is the FUE technique. Effective in the correction of baldness of androgenic origin in men and women, it is an autologous microsurgical procedure with the transfer of the person’s own hair from certain areas of the scalp (donor area) to the bald area, reconstructing it. About 4 to 6 months after surgery, the growth of these transplanted hairs begins to become visible. After their growth, they will not fall because of the action of the hormone DHT in the hair. There is no risk of rejection or scars.
The result of a hair transplant is guaranteed and depends on several factors
- Be consulted by a surgeon for the correct diagnosis and guidance for proper treatment.
- Have met the medical instructions pre and post-surgery.
- No deterioration of the remaining hair (remaining or not transplanted). The hair transplant does not replace existing hair but rather re-populates areas without hair.
