Afro Hair Transplant

At Este Medical, our hair experts understand the distinctive nature and nuances of afro-textured hair. Afro hair, also known as kinky hair and type 4 hair, holds an incredibly rich cultural significance and requires specialised care and tailored treatments – especially when it comes to hair transplants.

Este Medical Group in Turkey has been continually recognised for our advanced hair transplant procedures, and we’re proud to have a proven track record of successful hair transplants for our valued clients. Our Istanbul, Turkey clinic recently competed against 3,000 other hair transplant clinics in the Best of Year Awards, and came first place!  

If you notice hair loss or thinning, taking proactive steps sooner rather than later can drastically reduce any further hair loss and help you restore a full head of strong and healthy hair. Afro hair is characterised by its coiled and tightly curled structure and represents a broad spectrum of styles, textures, and densities. Hair care for afro hair significantly differs from other hair types due to its particular characteristics. But what makes it so unique?

The Key Differences of Afro Hair Compared to Other Hair Types:

The distinct attributes of afro textured hair include:

Higher Concentration of Lipids

Afro hair typically contains a higher concentration of lipids, which usually contributes to much thinner and oilier hair. However, the lipids in afro hair don’t bond as well as they do with other hair types, leaving it susceptible to dryness.

Follicular Structure

Although it differs depending on the individual, usually, East Asiatic hair follicles are almost round in shape and European hair follicles tend to be more oval shaped. Afro-textured hair has a distinct follicle structure, as they are flattened in the cross-section which contributes to unique curl and kink patterns, as well as unique textures.

Delicate Nature

Afro hair tends to be more delicate and prone to breakage. Its tightly coiled structure restricts the easy movement of moisture along the hair shaft, leading to increased vulnerability to dryness and breakage.

Shrinkage & Length Perception

Due to its coiled structure, afro hair often experiences significant shrinkage, making it appear shorter than its actual length when stretched. This can impact styling options and the perceived length of the hair.

What are the Causes of Afro Hair Loss?

Hair loss among those with afro-textured hair be due to various factors, some of which are specific to this unique hair type. Some common causes of afro hair loss include:

Our Hair Transplant Techniques and Technologies

Sapphire FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction)

Sapphire FUE stands at the very forefront of hair transplant innovation. This technique involves using precision-crafted sapphire blades instead of traditional steel blades for extracting hair follicles from the donor area.

The ultra-sharp and fine tips of the sapphire blades allow for more precise and minimally invasive incisions, resulting in smaller, cleaner grafts and reduced scarring. Patients benefit from quicker healing times, minimal discomfort, and natural-looking results with improved graft survival rates.

Sapphire DHI (Direct Hair Implantation)

Sapphire DHI adds to Sapphire FUE by combining it with the Direct Hair Implantation method. This advanced approach allows the simultaneous extraction and implantation of hair follicles, which minimises the time follicles spend outside the body and optimises their viability.  

Sapphire DHI offers a swift and efficient hair transplant process, precise graft placement, and seamless, undetectable results.

Pain-Free Hair Transplant with Sedation

Your comfort is our priority. That's why we offer sedation with our hair transplant procedures to help you feel at ease and ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during the procedure.  

Sedation helps to alleviate anxiety, allowing patients to remain calm and relaxed while our skilled professionals perform the transplant.
