With the popularity of hair transplant, some are wondering if body hair restoration is possible or if body hair can be used for hair transplantation. Many celebrities with trendy beards and thicker eyebrows Have added to the popularity of Facial hair transplants.

These hairs are also used to as alternate donor hair for scalp hair transplant.

A number of procedures are available for restoration of all or part of the eyebrow, chest, beard, and mustache by follicular units either by using the FUE or FUT technique. For those who are seeking to have Follicles transplanted to the facial area method chosen best suits the needs of the patient.

However, if the donor area does not have enough hair available body hair is used as an alternative to the donor hair in the back of the head.

GET A VIRTUAL CONSULTATION

Get Started

Even though Body hair transplant has gained some momentum for donor usage, its long-term permanency is still questionable. The hair in the back of the head is the primary choice for harvesting because it is resistant to DHT hormone which is responsible for genetic hair loss. As a result, the hair that is harvested from the back of the hair will remain. However the hair on the body does not have any effect on the DHT hormone, therefore if it is used as donor's hair the possibility of the transplanted hair falling in the future is very high. If body hair is used as a donor for hair transplantation, FUE is the only method of harvesting the grafts. At the time of consultation, these should be discussed with the patient by hair restoration physician and the best options should be recommended. These procedures are usually performed in an outpatient setting. Postoperative complications are usually limited to minor pain and swelling.

Nowadays only one to two procedures may be needed depending on the degree of thickness and hair loss, and patient's goal. hair transplants are remarkably well tolerated and will continue to grow for most of the patient's life, if taken from the donor zone in the back of the head. With these new techniques, a skilled hair transplant specialist will have unlimited donor hair availability. Body hair can be used for scalp hair transplant, as well as chest hair transplant, beard, mustache and eyebrow hair transplant with the most natural result.

Expected Results After Hair Transplant Surgery

posted Aug 29, 2017, 3:35 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Aug 31, 2017, 11:48 AM ]

Expected Results After Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplantation is a very safe, and relatively minor surgical procedure. It is an out patient procedure performed under local anesthesia while the patient is relaxed either watching T.V or sleeping. The whole procedure is done in one day and depending on the technique used and the number of grafts, it will take a few hours. At the end of the surgery, a light bandage is placed in the grafted area which is removed the next day.

The post op care is explained to the client and special shampoos are used for the first 7-10 days. While complications are rare, very little discomfort can be expected around the grafted area. Small crusts may form on the grafts, however, they can be camouflaged by any existing hair or by wearing a hat. These crusts will flake off by 5-14 days after the procedure. The donor site where the hair was taken shrinks and heals in a couple of weeks. Once it is healed, it usually is unnoticeable and well hidden by the surrounding hair. The transplanted hair growing from the scalp may initially be shed; however, the roots will remain and will be dormant for 10-14 weeks.  All of the transplanted hair will begin to grow after a few months.

The Amount of coverage varies from patient to patient and it depends on the extent of baldness and the patient's donor availability. within approximately one month, much of the transplanted hair is shed. The hair follicle will then go through a cycle of growth and depending on where in the cycle it is, it will then start to grow in. In about three months, the roots that are in growing stage will begin to grow and continue growing at a normal rate. Most of the hair growth is seen between 6-9 months after the procedure, but it may take up to a year for all the hair to grow in. In rare cases, the hair may take up to two years to grow, but this delay is not well understood. About six months after transplanted hair begins to grow, it begins to take on a normal appearance.

Nowadays only one to two procedures may be needed depending on the degree of balding, patient's donor supply, hair characteristics, and patient's special goals. Hair transplants are remarkably well tolerated and will continue to grow for most, if not all of one's life. However, before committing to a treatment plan, one should be satisfied that all the relevant questions have been addressed.

New Cancer Drugs Turn Patient's hair from gray to brown

posted Aug 11, 2017, 3:31 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Aug 15, 2017, 1:04 PM ]

New Cancer Drugs Turn Patient's hair from gray to brown

Hair gets its color from pigment called melanin that is produced by specialized cells called melanocytes in the hair follicle. The amount of melanin produced, and in what quantity is determined by genes inherited from One's parents. At some point in a person's life, the melanocytes may begin to produce less melanin, or stop producing melanin altogether. When Melanin production slows down or stops, hair begins to lose its color and the result is decreased pigmentation in gray hair or local absence of pigmentation in the White hair. In some Cancer patients’ gray hair unexpectedly turned dark while taking new immunotherapy drugs, a new study reveals.

While chemotherapy is notorious for making hair fall out, the 14 patients involved in this report were all being treated with a new form of drugs called immunotherapy, which work differently and have different side effects. Spanish researchers found that this drug was turning gray hair into brown in some of the patients being treated for lung cancer. With the first patient, ‘we thought it could be an isolated case,’ said Dr. Noelia Rivera, a dermatologist at Autonomous University of Barcelona, however the research team found the same thing when they asked other patients for photos from before treatment. The 14 cases were among 52 lung cancer patients being followed to see whether they developed bad side effects from the drugs – Keytruda, Opdivo and Tecentriq. While most patients did not have a color change, the 14 cases suggest it’s not an isolated finding. In 13 patients, hair turned darkish brown or black. In one patient, it turned black in patches.

In another odd twist, the same drugs have been linked previously with hair losing color in patients with another cancer, melanoma. All but one of the 14 patients in the Spanish study had at least stable disease and responded better to treatment than other patients, suggesting that hair darkening might be an indication that the drugs are working, the researchers said. However they results are still not definite and deserve deeper look before suggesting that these drugs lead to new treatments for gray hair. The pharmaceutical industry has previously capitalized on unexpected drug side effects; examples include the male pattern baldness drug Propecia, the eyelash growing drug Latisse, and Botox anti-wrinkle injections.

Why hair turns gray and can gray hair be transplanted?

posted Aug 4, 2017, 11:12 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Aug 15, 2017, 1:07 PM ]

Why hair turns gray and can gray hair be transplanted?

There are many misconceptions about gray hair, how it can be prevented and if there is any treatment available. To answer this question there needs to be an understanding about how hair turns gray and if graying is as a result of unhealthy hair. Hair gets its color from pigment called melanin that is produced by specialized cells called melanocytes in the hair follicle. The amount of melanin produced, and in what quantity is determined by genes inherited from One's parents. At some point in a person's life, the melanocytes may begin to produce less melanin, or stop producing melanin altogether. When Melanin production slows down or stops, hair begins to lose its color and the result is decreased pigmentation in gray hair or local absence of pigmentation in the White hair. Once hair starts to thin out many people wonder if gray hair can be transplanted.

When person with graying hair begins to experience hair loss, it effects all of the hair colors. Usually hair loss is due to genetic androgenic alopecia, a condition commonly called male or female pattern hair loss. If hair that is lost is gray, it can be transplanted as safely and successfully as hair of any color. A misconception about gray hair is that when hair turns gray it is no longer healthy hair. If this was true then gray hair would not be suitable for transplantation. The rational for hair transplantation is to remove healthy hair follicles to an area of hair loss where they can take root and continue to produce healthy hair. Even though healthy hair is a factor, but the main factor is the genetics embedded in the hair follicles. If the hair is transplanted from the donor zone which is resistant to the DHT hormone, then no matter the color of hair, it will be successful.

Modern Trichophytic closure technique in hair transplantation

posted Jul 31, 2017, 4:19 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Aug 15, 2017, 1:08 PM ]

Modern Trichophytic closure technique in hair transplantation


With today's more advance harvesting techniques for hair transplant procedures, thousands of hairs can be transferred from one area to the other. The two harvesting techniques that are the most popular are the FUE and the FUT methods. Both of these techniques if done correctly on the right candidate can be very successful. With the old FUT technique, there were some concerns about possibility of linear line formation after the procedure. However FUT method has come a long way and recently new techniques has developed that could minimize the linear line to the point that it is almost impossible to see after healing.

Meshkin Medical has successfully assisted patients with Irvine hair transplant. See how Meshkin Medical Irvine can help you.

In recent years some qualified and skilled hair transplant surgeons have developed a modern more advanced FUT procedure for closure of the wound for harvesting the grafts. This method is called the trichophytic closure, a superior and exclusive method in camouflaging linear line formation after the hair transplant procedure or even removing the previous scars that were already present. This method is a very meticulous donor removing and closure technique. Trichophytic closure involves sculpting the open flaps of scalp that allows one flap to overlap the other immediately reducing the visibility of the line and reducing the formation of scar. The angle of the incision is done in such of way that existing hair from one side will grow through the other side in the same direction with a very tight bond. This bond between the edges is so tight that it is almost impossible for it to open. In addition the lower edge of the incision is removed in such a manner that the hair grows through the incision making it very hard to see after it heals, even with a short hair cut. As a result, in most cases the trichophytic method allows hair transplant patients to wear short hairstyles without worrying about exposing a surgical scar.

In addition to being a superior method for harvesting grafts, the hair restoration surgeon can use trichophytic closure to repair scars left by previous surgeries. Older closure methods can open easier leaving wider, uneven, visible scars that can often be repaired using this advanced technique. A skilled hair restoration surgeon can evaluate and determine if Trichophytic technique is the best option for both harvesting hair from the donor area and also for scar removal. While most patients are candidates for this method of closure, the hair restoration surgeon should have the skills and experience to be able to perform this modern hair restoration technique properly. Some doctors may not offer this procedure simply because it requires special surgical skills and also it is more time consuming.

Tests available for Diagnosis and prediction of hair loss

posted Jul 20, 2017, 4:26 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Jul 20, 2017, 4:27 PM ]

Tests available for Diagnosis and prediction of hair loss

Up until recent years there had not been a precise technology to measure and predict the exact amount of future hair loss. However in the last few years, there has been development in devises and tests that can help evaluate or predict hair loss. These tests and devises assist with predicting genetic predisposition and measure progression of hair loss as clients age

There are variety of test available to predict hair loss. Some the tests include the following:

Hair Pull Test
This test will determine degree and stage of hair loss. the test involves taking a section f eight to ten hairs from various parts of the head that are gently grasped by the doctor and pulled outward to the end of the hair, with loss of one or two hairs falling within the normal range. If more than two is falling signs of early shedding may be present. the hairs can also be examined under the microscope for any damage and irregularities. This test has significance in patients with Alpecia Areata as a positive hair pull suggests that hair loss may affect the entire scalp.

Hair Density Test
It is important to note the width difference of hair loss from various part s of the scalp. This test can be performed on the patient's first doctor's visit with a hand help instrument and involves parting hair from different areas and measuring the various widths.

The Daily Hair Loss Test
This test consists of daily monitoring by the patient of hairs that fall out approximately per day and per week. hair can be collected and given to the doctor for close examination, who can determine the anagen-telogen ratio.

Hair Mount Test
This is microscopic examination of the hair shaft to observe abnormalities. The type of hair, texture, color, length and condition is observed in addition to noting if the hair is broken. broken hairs that are visible could be due to hair shaft fragility and hair breakage. This test is also helpful in identifying congenital hair disorders, fungal or bacterial infections and hair shaft fragility.

Microscopic Trichogram
This involves the microscopic examination of the hair bulb, n which several hairs are pulled and examined to compare the anagen-telogen relationship, as well as hair shaft diameter. less pigmentation as well as smaller hair shaft diameter indicates hair that is dystrophic or abnormal.

Diagnostic Lab Test
In order to make an accurate assessment of the cause of hair loss extensive lab work should be completed, these tests consists of blood count, tests for thyroid function, urinalysis, a serological test for syphilis, and routine chemical studies, as well as testosterone levels, sex hormone binding globulin, and serum Iron.

With detection of hair loss years before actual balding, appropriate treatment can be recommended to decrease the progression of hair loss. Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County offers many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages.

Cell Therapy and Cloning For Hairloss

posted Jul 12, 2017, 11:03 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Jul 12, 2017, 11:21 AM ]

Cell Therapy and Cloning For Hairloss

There is alot of talk about stem cells, cloning and their effect on hair growth. To understand cloning, it is necessary to know how cloning works on cellular level and realistically what To expect.

It has long been known that hair follicle development begins in the very early embryo, before the embryo begins to mature into the recognizably human form of a fetus. There is an exchange of molecular “signals” that causes the formation of a “bud” in the epidermal layer. The exact nature of these molecular signals has not been well understood, but has long been studied. Recent research in mice has revealed more about the nature of the molecular signals, telling investigators more about the process of “budding”, and laying down a new line of research into cellular development from stem cells [Jamora C et al. Links between signal transduction, transcription and adhesion in epithelial bud development. Nature 2003; 422:317-322.]. The research is important for continuing to advance the basis for “cell therapy” and cloning. As researchers discover more about the workings of the hair follicle at the molecular level, there are increased possibilities for development of successful therapies for hair loss such as more potent hair growth stimulators and even gene therapy and cloning to fight hair loss.

In case of cloning, Orginally the idea was that follicles be extracted from the donor zone in the back of the head and be multiplied by culturing methods to get new cell growth. It was suggested that these new cells in turn can be injected back into the balding areas to produce new hair growth. This was a very promising idea specially for those who have limited hair to be harvested in the donor zone. However after many years of studies, hair cloning still remains in research stage and has not fully developed.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County is at the forefront of research for prevention of hair loss. He gives many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages.

How Does Propecia Work and What are Some of the Possible Side Effects?

posted Jun 28, 2017, 4:16 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Jun 28, 2017, 4:17 PM ]

How Does Propecia Work and What are Some of the Possible Side Effects?

There are many undocumented medical cures for hair loss that have been circulated the market for years, you can either blindly accept the claims or you can do research to make sure that these products are reliable. Some of these products have been backed by scientific studies and have documented proof on the products on exactly how they work and are approved by FDA. These studies show the degree of effectiveness on hair growth and the possible side effects that may be associated with them. One of these products that is FDA approved is Propecia. In the recent years Propecia has become a popular product, but it is always important to research this product thoroughly before using it to become familiar with how it works and also its possible side effects.

Propecia is an oral medication available by prescription only, and it has been introduced to the market by Merk Pharmaceuticals more than a decade ago. Finisteride is approved only for use by men, and has become available as the brand Propecia. In scientific studies, it has been shown to regrow hair in some men and stop hair loss in an even higher percentage. Finisteride works by decreasing the formation of DHT, a hormone responsible in large for male pattern hair loss, while not reducing testosterone, the overall male hormone responsible for masculinity. It works by blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT. It does this by inhibiting the action of the type II 5-alpha reductase enzyme that is present in higher concentration in and around the hair follicles of men with thinning hair that is induced by Androgenic Alopecia. The manufacture suggests to take this medication orally once a day for more than one year or longer to notice any effects on hair loss. It has been suggested that Finasteride works best for early and moderate hair loss, but it may also help patients with more advanced hair loss to preserve their remaining hair or slow down the progression of hair loss in men with male pattern hair loss.

As with any medication, there are some side effects that are associated with Propecia. The data shows that side effects from Finasteride at the 1mg dose is uncommon and that any side effects that may involve sexual function are mild and occur in less than 2% of all patients. There are reports of decreased libido, ejaculation disorder and orgasm disorder. there are also reports of male infertility and/or poor semen quality with the use of Propecia. In some men, there are reports of related adverse reactions to the breast, including breast tenderness and breast enlargement. Most reported cases of side effects occurred soon after starting the medication, but there are reports that it can occur at later points in time. Most were reversed in those who discontinued therapy but there are cases where the symptoms continued even when the therapy was stopped. this medication should be prescribed under the supervision of a hair loss specialist and these side effects should be discussed thoroughly. it is encouraged to return to the physician for follow up evaluation. If the patient is experiencing any of the adverse reactions while taking Finasteride, the use of this medication should be discontinued and patient should contact their doctor.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County offers many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages. It is important to prevent progression of hair loss by using the right hair medical regiment.

Does Stress Cause Hair Loss?
