Prior to your treatment, our team will send you a set of pre-treatment instructions to prep you for the big day.
The most common pre-treatment instructions are as follows:
– Avoid stimulants like tea, coffee, and cigarettes on the day of the procedure.
– Don’t come with an empty stomach. Make sure you have a full breakfast before you arrive.
On the day of the treatment, our team will be ready and waiting to take you to your procedure room and give you the best experience possible.
The moments before your first hair transplant can be exciting or produce some nervousness. Our hair experts at Maison Lutétia know how answer your questions and make you feel at home. Your experience from the consultation through the recovery period should be as positive as the results you’ll see.
Your session at Maison Lutetia starts in the morning when you will arrive via our VIP access and how you will leave once your treatment is complete. We have a dedicated area for you to get comfortable, with a wardrobe for you to place your belongings and a couch to simply relax with a book, lunch or simply daydream.
Our procedure rooms aren’t the stereotypical white-walled rooms that mimic just any urban VIP suite; they have fully-equipped medical beds with a flat screen TV to stream your favourite shows and movies on Netflix.
Expecting results that go beyond the body’s natural genealogy can have a negative psychological impact on the patient and their perception of medical aesthetic treatments. This is why it is important to us that we educate the patient about their hair heritage and its potential so no unrealistic expectations and promises are made.
Our hair specialists start the procedure with an evaluation of your hair density on the donor zone. This is also called the Hippocratic Wreath. Here, the hair follicles are examined closely to verify their quality; are they fine, thin or thick?
For patients who suffer from early hair loss or who may need another transplant, management of the donor zone is pivotal. The evaluation stage is crucial if we want to have a consistent implantation strategy and long-term results.
After the Implantation Phase, we provide you with an appetizing snack and a bag containing all of your post-treatment essentials. Your nurse will also go through a set of instructions with you. This is the perfect time to ask any questions or having any concerns.
You can resume your daily activities without any constraints to your lifestyle, however we do leave the implantation area open and place a bandage on the back of your head. The morning after your treatment you can remove the bandage with lukewarm water.
Patience is a virtue. The results of your transplantation are depend on the cycle of your hair.
It is necessary for each implanted hair follicle to regain its bearings and start reproduction of new hair. Our hair goes through the cycle of growth, weakens and then eventually falls out. This cycle means it can take at least 12 to 18 months for the implanted hair to reach its ‘adult’ stage. This is when you will start to see significant results.
