Biofibre Procedure ?

®

The Biofibre procedure consists of an initial consultation, where the patient is assessed for suitability and other options for hair restoration are discussed. A standard consultation fee applies. If the doctor and patient decides to proceed with Biofibre, a test patch can be done during this consultation, or can be scheduled for another time. All patients must undergo a test patch procedure which consists of implanting a 100 hair fibres. A special hair care pack will be given to the patient and a follow up will be scheduled for a month after this procedure. If there are no hypersensitivity reactions, a 1000 hair implant procedure can be done after a month. No more than a 1000 hair fibres will be implanted in any one session.

 

Sessions can be spaced one month apart. Most patients will require between 1000 to 3000 hairs to obtain the desired result.

 

Results are immediate with no downtime and only mild discomfort on the scalp for a day or two. Long term maintenance requires the use of specific after care products. Due to traction wear and tear, most patients should expect to have a top up procedure of about 100 hairs per year.

 

The test patch procedure is mandatory for all cases and takes about an hour to complete, including the consultation. Each subsequent procedure of 500 – 1000 hair implants will take about 2 hours to complete. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and the patient should be fit to drive after.
