A hair transplant means transplanting hair in order to fill in bald spots on the scalp where you desire more hair growth. It is most common to fill in the temples or crown of the head. Sometimes larger areas all over the head may need to be filled in.
The hair is often sourced from the back of the neck. If the patient does not have enough hair on the back of the neck to extract enough grafts, it is occasionally possible to collect hair from the chest. This may be due to the patient already having had a hair transplant or having a scar.

Common areas for hair transplantation
Transplantation with the FUE method
A hair transplant is an operation that requires time, precision and skill. Our hair technicians are among the best in the business with years of experience in transplanting hair follicles. We seek to achieve natural and attractive results with the help of our highly skilled surgeons and hair technicians and their careful precision work.
Groups of hair follicles, medically defined as grafts, are transferred from your donor area to the area lacking hair. This may be done for the head, the beard, and the eyebrows. You can also cover scars with a hair transplant.
Aftertreatment with PRP is included in the price
After a hair transplant, we always recommend our patients to have a PRP. This is because PRP helps the transplant site to heal and stimulates faster hair growth for a better result. When you travel to Sweden for your hair transplant with us, 1 PRP treatment is included as aftercare for your newly transplanted hair.
For the PRP treatment, we centrifuge your own blood and extract thrombocytes with growth factors from your blood plasma. These are then injected into the scalp on a surface level. PRP creates new capillaries that help nourish the hair follicles and get them to take root.
What is PRP?
During a PRP treatment, also known as the vampire facial, we take a blood sample from you. Your blood is placed in a centrifuge and centrifuged until the blood is divided into several layers so that the blood plasma is at the top. We then extract the growth factors from the blood plasma and inject them into the scalp to stimulate the healing process of the newly transplanted hair which encourages the hair to grow.
Frequently asked questions
The hair transplanted from the back of the head does not grow back. The transplant itself means that the entire hair follicle from the back of the head is removed. When a transplant is well made, the difference between your normal hair and that which has been transplanted will not be very noticeable. You will not be completely hairless on the back of the head when you have done a hair transplant.
It is not recommended to wear a hat or a cap until a week after the operation as there is a risk of scraping down the hair follicles. After a week its fine to have a hat or cap if it is not too tight. Keep in mind that the hat or cap should not press on the transplanted area for at least two weeks to come.
The treatment is safe and natural because it is your own blood that we use. There may be some redness immediately after treatment, but it goes away a few hours afterwards. Immediately after treatment, you can return to your regular everyday activities.
During a PRP treatment you can feel some mild stinging and feel a little uncomfortable, especially during the first treatment. But in general, PRP treatments are simple and take place without discomfort. Before PRP skin treatment you will get numbing cream before the actual treatment begins to avoid stinging as much as possible.
You stay 2 nights in a four-star hotel that is within walking distance to the clinic. The day after your hair transplant we take off your bandage and you will receive a PRP treatment. Regardless of the number of grafts you transplant, you pay a fixed price.
