SHA has set up the SHA CAPILLARY HEALTH UNIT, together with the prestigious dermatologist Jose María Ricart, to provide comprehensive care for all kinds of hair problems.
The SHA Capillary Care Unit not only focuses on people with alopecia or capillary problems, but also those who have healthy hair and want to take preventive measures to keep their hair in optimum condition.
Our concept begins with the analysis and the examination of the factors that can lead to the deterioration of hair and the loss of such.
We analyse all the possible factors related to hair damage: diet, stress, diseases, hereditary conditions, hormone problems, to carry out a personalised analysis and diagnosis for each specific case.
Having made this diagnosis, using the most up-to-date technology, we prescribe absolutely personalised treatment, which ranges from local treatment, mesotherapy, to the most innovative capillary transplant procedures.
Hair Transplant: The hair transplant by means of the FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction or “individual extraction of follicles”) is a systematic and artistic redistribution of the hair follicles, which involves inserting small grafts of the scalp that contain the so-called “follicular units”. These grafts are obtained under local anesthesia from the donor site, namely the back and/or side area of the scalp and they are then implanted into the recipient site by means of making micro incisions, according to the design previously agreed upon with the patient. Having obtained the grafts from the back and side areas of the head, which have the hormone receptors that are not affected by the enzymatic hyperactivity, once grafted into other areas they do not fall out and they continue to grow normally.
During a session our experts use the Trichoscan technology to carry out an in-depth study on the patient’s capillary health, to determine not only their current but also their future hair condition. Our method com- bines epiluminescence microscopy with the automatic digital analysis to be able to conduct a thorough follow-up of the guest’s progress.
Medical Capillary Treatments
Capillary Reinforcing Mesotherapy: A cocktail of vitamins and medicine is injected into the dermal ca- pillaries; its effectiveness has been proved for androgenic alopecia as it stimulates tissue regeneration and the growth of the hair follicles.
Factors of Capillary Growth Therapy: Platelet rich plasma, bioactive proteins and growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration and the growth of hair follicles, are injected into the dermis of the scalp.
LEDS: Treatment that consists in using anti-inflammatory light that makes the hair strong and shiny.
INDIBA Scalp Therapy: Radiofrequency treatment helps treat balding, hair loss and weakened hair.
Hair Transplant Treatment
The mechanized manual transplant technique that we use, enables us to take hair out of the whole donor area of the head and use incision diameters of 0.8mm or less when extracting the hair follicles and after they have been prepared very carefully under the microscope, they are implanted in the recipient area by means of microincisions.
We carry out our hair transplants using the FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction or “individual follicle extraction”), which consists in the individual extraction of hair follicles from different donor areas after shaving the area in question. This technique is carried out without having to cut or put stitches in the donor area, and without having to use invasive surgery. It is considered to be the most advanced hair transplant technique that currently exists, in which the hairs are implanted one by one, leaving just a tiny lesion that doesn’t need any stitches and will cure on its own, without leaving a scar afterwards.
