STAGE 1 – CONSULTATION
Consultations can be held in person or online. For simplicity, the doctor will consult SKYPA. For the initial assessment, please send an application form located on the website. Photos sent for the evaluation should be made in several positions – in the front, in the back, with profiles. If you want to send a message with photos, you should also write: your age, when the balding process started, how the process of balding in the family is going on, you should also list all the diseases past and present and medicines used. This information will allow the physician to precisely determine the treatment program and possibly order additional tests.
However, there is no substitute for personal consultation and direct talk with a doctor.
Consultation is a meeting with a surgeon who will perform the procedure. During the consultation you can talk about your expectations about the procedure, and the doctor will agree with you on further treatment plan. During the personal consultation, the surgeon also discusses the procedure of the procedure. Keep in mind that there are no questions that the surgeon will not answer, ask for everything. The consultation time is unlimited and belongs only to you.

HBS, HCV, HIV, ANA with a titer.
The HBS, HCV, HIV, ANA1 tests should be performed a few weeks before the surgery, as the results are expected to be about 14 days. However, the research: morphology, coagulation system, CRP must be performed a few days before the procedure.
The test results should be sent by email to the clinic.

On the day of the procedure, do not exercise, eat breakfast and drink soft drinks, do not drink coffee.
On the day of the treatment there is no need to cut hair, the doctor will prepare the length of hair for your needs. There must always be a shortened back of the head – a place of donation to a height of 2-3 mm, the decision to shorten the hair at the recipient site belongs to the patient and the doctor, also depends on the area of the treatment.

It should be remembered that the swelling of the face and the eye area may occur after the procedure. Sometimes visual field limitation may occur. Therefore, for people who drive cars, you must take into account the need to stay in the hotel one day longer.
STAGE 6 – THE PROCESS OF GOVERNING AND EFFICIENCY EFFECTS
The total healing time is about 14 days. After this time, the donor and recipient site is completely healed, the hair in the recipient will grow 5 mm.
Personal and occupational life in the first days after surgery should be limited due to the visual effect, swelling, bruising under the eyes, and scabs in the donor and recipient areas.
WHEN THE “NEW” HAIR WILL BE VISIBLE?
Some patients do not fall out of all the implanted hair, they just start to grow. This is not a dangerous symptom and does not affect the final effect of the treatment.
The first implanted hair begins to grow after a period of 3-4 months after the procedure. In the first months the density is small, irregular, weak hair. Do not be nervous, because in the following months the hair will thicken, so that after 12 months you get the final result.
