Hair Transplants in 2019

hair transplant 2019
In just the last decade or so, advancements in medical technology and medical management have reached incredible levels. Better prophylactic treatments responding to cancer, diabetes and endometriosis have been accomplished in 2018, for example.
More and more individuals today are also turning to medical aid to maintain their youthful features. Dental implants, vampire facials, botox and hair transplants are growing in effectiveness, safety and popularity. Many of these procedures require little downtime, lack of general anesthesia and offer immense facial aesthetic benefits.
A major study in Reuters explains: “One of the shining examples of [modern medical advancement] is the global market for hair transplant. According to the research report by MRFR (Market Research Future), this market will develop at Godspeed during the forecast period of 2017-2023”.
Barring exceptional cases of the hair transplant black market, the steadily increasing success rate of hair transplants (both FUE and FUT) has contributed to a growing demand for hair restoration services. Clients can effortlessly and confidently obtain sexy beard transplants, thick eyebrow transplants, full hair transplants and more. Embracing medical aids to enhance facial aesthetics is no longer a stigma-bearing activity, rather it is the way of the future. Enhancing facial and body aesthetics is not just an exclusive activity for celebrities anymore, but an integral part of modern self-help.
“According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), there were over 133,000 people who had hair restoration in the U.S. in 2016, and that was a 18% increase over the prior year,” writes the Medical Daily.
Some of the advancements taking place in the art of hair transplantation include:
Methodological Advancement: The ultimate end and aim of hair transplant work is to produce a natural looking hairline. Dr. Yazdan at Modena Hair Institute, for example, has developed and refined an advanced micro-punch device which harvests with minimal scarring and graft wastage. Advanced micro incisions also produce cleaner and faster graft extractions which result in more affordable and effective procedures.
Increased Hair Density: On top of a natural-looking hairline shape and growth pattern due to expert angle and direction determination, modern hair restoration specialists use powerful new tools to accurately understand hair shaft diameter, curl and texture.
Time and Healing: Decreased post-operative pain and a lack of visible scarring has allowed some patients to return to daily activities 1 to 2 days after the procedure.
At Modena Hair Institute our stringent process and careful handling ensures higher graft survival rate and thicker hair density. When grafts are planted between existing hairs, our hair specialists can clearly see the natural angle of hair growth and can perfectly position each graft to match the existing ones. This eliminates the risk of planning grafts too close to existing hair, giving patients a more natural look that lasts.
As the 2018 year comes to a close, we find ourselves very excited for the future of hair transplantation in 2019.

Keep Your Locks Looking Lux this Summer

It is well known that the sun damages our skin, but does it damage our hair as well? Scientific research says yes. Further, chlorine and saltwater will also take a toll on our luscious locks we work so hard to keep soft and healthy. The not-so-pleasant outcome: a few weeks into summer, hair that was once shiny and easily managed looks and feels as stiff and crunchy as a McDonald french-fry. “The ultraviolet rays of the sun actually cook the hair shaft” says world-renowned Hair Restoration Specialist, Dr. Yazdan.
Whether color-treated or all natural, your hair will suffer from sun-induced stress at some point this season. Those UV rays dry out the hair and thrashes our normally smooth cuticle, or outer layer, of the hair shaft. With summer’s pleasant weather and sun-bathing days…our hair and skin undoubtedly pay the price! In this article we’ll discuss some of summer’s biggest threats to our hair and ways to prevent it this season.
The dryer and more dehydrated the hair is, the more likely it is to suffer from a summer plague that’s even more aggravating than a back full of mosquito bites. That’s because parched hair soaks up the extra humidity in the air, causing the shaft to swell and in turn, leads to breaks in the cuticle. Hair then puffs up like a puffer fish and goes every which way but smooth and straight.
Swimming (saltwater or chlorine)
Unless you’re swimming in a pool full of Evian water, swimming beats up your hair, too. Take a plunge and while you’re doing your backstrokes, chlorine is stripping your hair of its natural protective oils that are essential for healthy hair. Additionally, if you’re a blonde, you may find your tresses taking on an unflattering greenish tinge. Ah! That’s a result of the copper molecules and other pool chemicals that bind to the protein in the hair shaft.
Let’s not forget to mention our coastal friends…but a dip in the ocean stresses hair in another way causing immediate trauma. “The copious salt content in seawater draws water out of your hair and skin. That’s why we end up with prune-y fingers, a salty body and parched hair” explains Dr. Yazdan.
Tips & Tricks for Healthy & Luxurious Summer Hair
Summer doesn’t have to be the season of unruly hair days. With a little extra TLC, your hair can still look great on some of summers stickiest days. Below are some stuffy-weather mane-taming tips!
Begin summer with a trim – You’ll rid your hair of split ends and revamp your style this season for a fresh, new and improved look.
Guard your strands from the sun – Make a habit out of applying a hair care product that contains heat protective ingredients such as GroMD’s Follicle Activator Spray enriched with Argan Oil – a powerhouse when it comes to being heat-resistant!
Saturate your strands before taking a dip – If your hair is drenched with clean water or leave-in conditioner, it won’t absorb nearly as much saltwater or pool chemicals than dry hair will.
Switch to a moisturizing shampoo & conditioner –  You may be washing your hair more often to deal with summer’s sweat, grime and water-related activities. Dr. Yazdan recommends using a clarifying, anti-residue shampoo enhanced with argan oil and tea tree oil like GroMD Shampoo to deeply hydrate, and clear away product buildup and chemicals followed by a deep-conditioning treatment.
Skip the hot tools – Ok ladies, we understand this is a difficult one but at least once or twice a week – give your hair some rest and recovery from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons. At Modena, we recommend washing your hair at night and bunching it up in a bun, a braid, or ponytail before you head to bed. When you wake up, you’ll have those nice beachy waves. It’s makes the perfect look for summer weekends and vacation vibes.
Outwit frizz – Hair that’s healthy and well-maintained is your best defense against frizz. Along with regular trims and deep-conditioning, a drop or two (or 3 or 4 for longer hair) of an anti-frizz oil or serum can revive your hair with sleekness and shine. Again, we recommend hair products like GroMD that use the world’s most expensive oil – argan oil!
But let’s face it, sometimes we’re in a pickle and barely have time to drink a second cup of coffee in the morning. Alternatively, find an easy ‘go-to’ hairdo like a slick pony, high bun (whether sleek or messy), or side braid for those high-humidity days – your hair will thank you later!

Genius tips for perfecting curly hair

A day in the life of a curly-haired individual is far from easy. Anyone with curly hair can testify first-hand to the struggle that is good hair days and bad hair days.
Luckily, there’s things you can do to help create more good hair days and wean out those bad ones. These tips are tried and tested and will help you create wavy, curly, shiny, strong hair.
Start from the bottom. Always start combing hair from the bottom up. This will allow you to gently detangle hair, preventing breakage and damage caused by yanking and pulling on hair (NOT good for curls!).
Regular trims are key. Getting regular trims removes split or dead ends which improves the look and health of your hair. Your hair will not only grow longer, it will be less frizzy, and more bouncy (i.e., every curly-haired person’s dream concoction!).
Mix and match your hair products. When you have complex hair you need a complex haircare regimen. Rather than trying to find one product to meet all your needs (probably impossible), mix and match products to create your perfect haircare cocktail. For example, use part serum and part mousse when prepping and styling hair. The serum will smooth while the mousse texturizes.
Use a wide-tooth comb to tame your locks. Brushes are not a curly-hair wearer’s friend. Curls are fragile and brushes disrupt your locks, potentially causing breakage. Stay safe and friendly with a wide-tooth comb. This will protect the natural curl and bounce of your hair.
Not sure what product is best for you? Serums are always a safe bet for curly hair. They’re lightweight, smoothing, and add definition. When using serum, use a few pumps at a time, and run evenly through your curls.

The benefits of going organic with your hair and skin care products

While many are familiar with the benefits of eating organic food, not as many are familiar with the benefits of using organic products for the hair and skin.
To first understand the benefits of going organic, we first need to understand what exactly organic means.
The term organic has many different definitions. When it’s used in relation to food or products, it refers to the process in which things are grown or made. When something is labeled organic, the growth or production process doesn’t involve the use of antibiotics, pesticides, or chemicals.
This is important because these toxic chemicals, antibiotics, and pesticides can have lasting effects on the human body, the extent of which is not yet fully known. And consuming these toxic chemicals doesn’t just harm us in the long-term. Many individuals experience reactions to these harmful chemicals short-term as well.
Digestive issues, stomach upset, and rashes are just some of the many short-term reactions some individuals have experienced when consuming non-organic products.
In order to maintain overall health and wellness, its recommended to avoid any unnecessary antibiotics, pesticides, and chemicals. This is extremely important with food, and as we’re learning more, just as important with our hair and skin care products as well. After all, our bodies absorb externally through our hair and skin as well as internally.
With increased awareness comes increased options. Today, there are more organic options for skin and hair products than ever before.
When shopping for organic products make sure to keep a careful eye on the ingredient list.
Organic hair care products will be sulfate-free and have a limited ingredient list. Sulfates and unnecessary chemicals can cause build-up in our hair which can clog pores, block follicles, and prevent hair growth.
Organic skin care products will be free of parabens, sulfates, and other harsh chemicals. Foregoing these toxic chemicals will help prevent rashes, hives, and other unwanted reactions. Our favorite organic lotion is byebye creams.
If you’re turned off by the price of going organic – try DIY instead. There’s a plethora of online blogs that provide detailed instructions on how to create your own shampoos, lotions, deodorants, and much more.
Let us know how you go organic!
