Why choose for EHC?
First and foremost, EHC consistently works with an experienced plastic surgeon who carries out the procedure from start to finish. This way of working is exceptional in this sector.
At most hair clinics, the surgeon’s task is limited to making the incisions. The larger part of the procedure is carried out by nurses.
Secondly, we keep investing in the latest innovative techniques both in terms of hair transplants and anesthesia.
Finally, EHC continues to monitor your situation for up to 1 year post treatment. During this period we provide the necessary aftercare in Belgium.
Is a hair transplant permanent?
The implanted hairs of the donor area are immune to the negative effects of DHT (dihydrotestosteron). This means that your new hair won’t fall out and that the results are permanent.
After your treatment you will receive a lifetime warranty on the transplanted hair.
Is the treatment painful?
EHC applies the most innovative anesthetic techniques ensuring that your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
The classic (painful) injections are being replaced by the Jet injector. This is a needleless (local) anesthetic technique that minimizes the discomfort.
The treatment is therefore completely painless.
How many grafts are implanted?
The implanted grafts vary depending on the required number of grafts and how much your donor area allows.
We garantuee the maximum number of grafts possible for each patiënt.
When will I see results?
After the treatment there is a recovery phase that lasts approximately 5 days. (instead of 14 days)
This rapid recovery phase is due to the use of our special Sapphire blade method.
Please mind that 90-95% of the implanted hairs will fall out during the first 2 months. The implanted grafts enter a shock period, after which they will go into a “sleep mode”.
You can expect new hair grow around the 3rd month.
After the 5th month, your hair will grow back stronger and fuller.
After 10 to 12 months the implanted hairs are 90-95% fully grown.
- 5 days: Recovery phase
- 2-4 months: First growth phase
- 5-8 months: Second growth phase
- 12-14 months: End result
Do hair transplants also work for women?
As long as the donor area permits, both men and women with hair loss or hair problems can be treated.
During an intake interview we will assess whether your donor is suitable for a hair transplantation.
Use of alcohol, cigarettes, drugs and medicines?
Alcohol has a blood-thinning effect, which stimulates bleeding.
We highly recommend avoiding alcohol at least 1 week before the treatment.
Do you smoke? Keep in mind the following rule: stop 1 week before the treatment and 2 weeks after the treatment. Smoking causes poor circulation and can have a bad influence on the healing process.
Drug use is unfavorable for healing and can negatively influence the result. The advice is to stop this 2 weeks in advance until the first month after treatment.
