How Does A Hair Transplant Procedure Work?
A hair transplant involves extracting hair follicles from one side of your scalp to the balding spots. The extraction is usually done from the back of your head where the hairs are usually much more dense. After the extraction, the hair follicles will then be transplanted on the bald spots to generate hair growth and eliminate them. Each procedure will take around six to eight hours.
How Many Hairs Will I Need for A Hair Transplant?
Prior to the procedure, you will need to attend a consultation with Datuk Dr Alice. With her expertise, she will perform an analysis on your scalp to determine the condition of your scalp and the pattern of your hair loss. This is how the amount of hair needed can be determined. Based on their experience, they have extracted and transplanted from 250 hair follicles to 2000 hair follicles from the back of the head where hair is more dense, to the balding areas on the scalp. Therefore, the amount of hair is highly dependent on the size of the surface of the balding.
Do I Need To Use Hair Loss Medication After The Hair Transplant?
The simple answer is not likely. However, if there is a need for additional medication, Datuk Dr. Alice will prescribe it to you. Minoxidil is added to the hair follicles which promotes the healing of the scalp after the treatment as well as prevent any future hair falls.
You will be provided with a medicated shampoo to be used for two weeks post treatment. Then, after the two week period you will begin using Dr Alice Hair Care Set which is equipped with ingredients and formulated to promote hair growth and prevent hair fall. This hair care set contains one Hair Tonic, a Shampoo, and a Conditioner for a full hair care treatment during every wash.
Will I Need To Go For Future Transplants?
It is highly unlikely that you will need to undergo future transplants after your first one. This is because the stem cells that are produced from Regenera Activa will promote healing and allow for successful hair regrowth. You will experience regrowth not only at the balding region which were targeted, but also where the hair follicles were extracted during the procedure.
On top of that, the Dr Alice Hair Tonic will reduce hair loss which avoids any need for future hair transplants.
Do I Have Enough Donor Hair To Cover My Bald Spot?
The area where your hair will be extracted from will be examined prior to the procedure. During the consultation, Datuk Dr alic will analyse your scalp to determine the number of hairs that can be transplanted from the donor region to the bald spot. The hair density desired by the client, as well as the size of the bald spots are key factors in determining how much hair follicles are needed.
How will Regenera Activa help with the FUE Hair Transplant?
The process will begin with the extraction of a few hair follicles that will then be placed inside the Regenera Activa machine. The stem cells from the hair follicles are attained this way. These stem cells will be injected into the balding area which will promote the process of healing. This will also increase the thickness of your hair once the hair that has been transplanted regrows.
Will the results look completely natural?
The most important part of the hair transplant process is the outcome. The FUE method used treats every hair follicle as one. Therefore, the placement of the hairs that were implanted can be styled and managed. This allows a natural looking hair growth with denser hair placement.
Datuk Dr Alice is well prepared in terms of technique and skill. She has attended technical and clinical courses on Hair Transplant Special Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) with Punch Hair Matic or Omnigraft in Paris in 2011 as well as being certified by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery.

How Long Will It Take For My Hair To Grow?
Hair regrowth will take approximately one year.
What makes Dr Alice’s Hair Transplant Technique really different?
The follicles may be spliced before being transplanted back in the market. Which is undesirable because the transplanted hair may not look stunning when it grows back. This will also result in the transplanted hair appearing thin. This is why the micrografts would be removed from the scalp while the lipids were still attached to the follicles, and stem cells would be transplanted in their right place. This is all done to ensure clients satisfaction with the hair regrowth.
The procedure’s distinctiveness stems from Datuk Dr Alice’s 15 years of experience in the field of regenerative medicine. She is also a lecturer and member of the faculty at the European College of Aesthetic Medicine & Surgery (ECAMS), where she works in the Departments of Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine and Aesthetic Medicine.
Who Is The Hair Transplant Treatment Suitable For?
The hair transplant procedure at Dr Alice is suitable for both men and women who have adequate hair at the back of their head to be the donor hairs.
However, a person with a Diffuse Hair Loss condition will not be suitable. Hair transplantation could not be done on someone who has Alopecia Areata. This is since this type of hair loss can affect any part of the scalp, including the transplanted hair, rendering the treatment useless to them.
How Much Does The Hair Transplant Treatment at Dr Alice Cost?
The cost for the procedure is RM15.90 per follicle and RM7,000 for Regenera Activa. The price varies depending on the affected areas and needs to be analyzed during the consultation before a final quoting of the exact price can be calculated.
