FAQ – Biofibre
Below you will find answers to the frequently asked questions regarding the implantation procedure of Biocompatible Biofibre Artificial Hair in Serdev Clinic.
Q: What are the features that make Biofibre® Artificial Hair suitable for implantation?
The fibers meet all the requirements set by International Standards for safety and biocompatibility of Medical Devices.
Q: How is the Implantation procedure performed?
The implantation is a simple, light surgery procedure. It consists of introducing one Biofibre® hair at a time, until the density required by the patient is obtained.
Q: What does the implanted hair look like? How is it treated?
Biofibers are aesthetically identical to natural hair. Patient should maintain the implanted hair in the same way they would maintain their natural hair – with hair quality products. The fibres do not lose their colour and should not be died with aggressive products. They are very resistant and do not break.
Q: How long does it take until a Biofibre implant is stabilized?
The final fixing of implanted Biofibres is completed about 20-30 days after implantation and will remain unchanged for a long period of time.
Q: How many Biofibre hairs are implanted during each implant session?
Usually, 800-1500 hairs are implanted per session, or a maximum of 2000 in case of complete baldness. If the patient desires a greater density, Medicap High Density hair (MHD) can be implanted to provide a triple volume of hair outside the scalp, compared to implanted hair (3000 hairs are obtained by implanting 1000 fibres).
Q: What is the interval between the Biofibre implant sessions?
Normally, a Biofibre hair implant session can be repeated every 15-28 days, the rule being that every implant can be performed only on healthy scalp.
Q: Can I have a Biofibre Hair Implant after an autologous hair transplantation?
Yes! This has has become a regular practice today. Biofibre® is added to increase the density of hair.
Q: Can I have a Hair Implant session during therapy with Minoxidil and Finasteride?
Yes, many dermatologists today implant Biofibre® artificial hair simultaneously with the dermo-trichological therapy.
Q: I wear a wig. Can I have a Biofibre Hair Implant?
Yes, an implantation with Biofibre hair starts from the nape. Afterwards, the portion of wig corresponding to the implanted area is eliminated step-by-step, as the newly implanted area must always remain free to be rapidly healed.
Q: What is the duration of the aesthetic result?
The duration of the aesthetic result obtained with Biofibre® implantation varies depending on the correct management of the post-implant period. The literature on the subject reports an annual loss of approximately 10 % of the implanted fibers.
Q: How many Biofibre® hairs are necessary for a generalized hair loss?
Approximately 2,500 Biofibre hairs are sufficient to obtain a good aesthetic result.
