Hair loss – Hair transplantation
Hair transplantation by the method of FUE (follicular unit extraction) is the most reliable method of hair transplantation. At the Derma-Act clinics, we base any procedure on the FUE method with thorough preparation and precise performance. We use high-end diagnostic medical technologies to plan your hair transplantation step by step to maximally increase the vitality of your hair follicles.
At Derma-Act, we are aware of the fact that your hair creates your image. Hence, we rely on the most effective techniques of hair transplantation, through which we ensure the survival and repeated growth of all hair follicles which we transfer to the recipient area.
Warranty of quality
We aim for the most natural result possible
To us, a successful result of hair transplantation is the result showing vitality and an absolutely natural appearance. It has to be inconspicuous and the hair has to be the same as it was before intensive hair loss. In other words, the result is successful when no one suspects that you have undergone a procedure of hair transplantation.
We protect the donor area
We receive hair follicles from a donor area, which we later transplant to an area of hair thinning. Depending on the density of hair growth and the skin elasticity, the donor area is characterized on a scale of poor to good, which defines the final result to a large extent. We take care to keep the hair follicles in both the donor and recipient zones healthy, since they cannot be replaced in case of injury.
Hair transplantation by the FUE method
In Derma-Act we perform hair transplantation by the FUE method – the most reliable method of hair transplantation and the only way of hair thickening with a long-lasting result. The method is based on a study of hair follicle.
Stages of hair transplantation by the FUE method
Stage 1: Trichoscopy
Trichoscopy is the most advanced and detailed study of the state of your scalp. Using the specialized FotoFinder TrichoLAB software program, we calculate precisely the possibilities for exploitation of a donor area and the needs of covering in thinning areas. The study is performed on a square centimetre of the scalp and is the basis for planning hair transplantation.
Stage 2: Planning
Stage 3: Performance of transplantation
Stage 4: Comparative trichoscopy
Following hair implantation, we repeat the trichological study at regular intervals. In this manner, we monitor the repeated occurrence of hair follicles by comparing "before" and "after" images. This gives you certainty that the number of follicles is increased and that it is the same number which you paid for. If there is a difference between the promised and final results, additional follicles will be implanted to you completely free of charge.
Lifelong enhancement of the effect
Strengthening hair follicles with autologous mesotherapy
We administer a strengthening autologous mesotherapy with growth factors which is notable for its regeneration properties. We soak hair follicles to maximally prolong their lives and their secondary occurrence. Moreover, we inject the recipient area to prepare tissues to “accommodate” new hair follicles.
Extraction of hair follicles at low rates
It is proven that the use of high rates at the stage of extraction of hair follicles is detrimental to their survival. We always maintain the pace of hair follicles as well as ideal conditions of storage until the very moment of their implantation (temperature, humidity, etc.) to achieve an optimal result.
Implantation of a large number of hair follicles (grafts) in 1 session
We are able to transplant a large number of hair follicles in one session (more than 7500 hairs) to meet anyone’s requirements without affecting the patient’s safety and comfort. The exact number of hair follicles is defined after a thorough trichological study and a detailed discussion of your needs and expectations.
The team of Derma-Act is excellently trained and specialized in hair transplantation by the FUE method to guarantee 100% natural result. Besides recovering the lost hair of our patients, we also return their self-confidence.
What you should know
Before hair transplantation in the Derma-Act clinics we:
- Examine past medical history
- Perform a blood test
- Perform trichoscopy, by which we examine the progress of hair loss, and plan hair transplantation
- We discuss with the patients their expectations in relation to final results
- Along with the patients, we review the "before" and "after" images taken of other patients and answer all the questions
- We formulate a treatment plan for the improvement of the effect of hair transplantation with conservative treatments such as autologous mesotherapy, injections of Minoxidil, etc.
After hair transplantation
- You can return to your daily activities immediately. Avoiding intensive physical exercise and lifting heavy objects for several days is recommended.
- The pain is tolerable and usually no intake of analgesics is required.
- Except for antibiotics for a short time immediately after the procedure, no other drugs will be prescribed.
- You will be given instructions for correct hair washing in the first days.
- Sensitivity, itching, redness or swelling in the scalp area can occur for a few days. They are normal phenomena that resolve within a few days and should not worry you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is hair transplantation?
What are the modern techniques of hair transplantation?
FUT: It is the most invasive version of hair transplantation. With this technique, a whole strip of skin is removed from a donor area and then hair follicles are separated one by one to implant in scattered areas. Although the method can provide a natural result, it leaves a large scar on the back of head.
FUE: It is the minimally invasive alternative of hair transplantation since hair follicles are extracted one by one from a donor area and thus no incisions or sutures are required. The method does not leave scars; the recovery period is minimized and side effects are eliminated.
FUE without shaving: At the Derma-Act clinics, we give you an option for a continuous FUE session, i.e., your hair transplantation will be performed without shaving in advance. You can maintain the normal appearance and length of your hair so that no one finds out that you have undergone a procedure of hair implantation. With hair transplantation by the FUE method without shaving, hair follicles are taken through cutting your hair in a donor area and then implanted between the other long hairs in a recipient area. The spots where hair is cut from are invisible because their size is extremely small and they are covered by the length of surrounding hair. This method is often preferred by people with long hair or those who do not want anyone to become aware of the process of transplantation.
When is it appropriate to undergo a procedure of hair transplantation?
Do you wonder if you are an appropriate candidate for hair transplantation? There are two basic conditions which you have to fulfil:
- To have a stable non-hormone-dependent area of hair growth (donor area) from which a sufficient amount of hair follicles can be extracted to cover the area of thinning.
- You should prevent involvement of the area of thinning (recipient area) in a condition (disease) which can affect the growth and survival of hair follicles to be implanted.
The majority of cases of hair transplantation refer to men (and to a lesser extent women) who suffer from androgenetic alopecia. Hair transplantation is considered inapplicable to the cases of patients suffering from diffuse alopecia or active inflammatory alopecia.
Is the result guaranteed?
We are provided with the most objective way to confirm the amount of hair and hair follicles transplanted in the recipient area, as well as the hair follicles which grow again. We offer a warranty for each hair follicle paid by you, based on which we perform an additional FUE free of charge if it is found that some hair follicleshave not grown (except for a naturally acceptable deviation of 5%).
