Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) Risks, Dangers and Safety
Due to the fact that DHI is a reasonably new technique you would be forgiven for worrying about the safety of the procedure, however the fact that the technique uses modern methods and only removes and implants a single hair follicle at a time vastly reduces the risks involved in the procedure compared to more invasive surgical methods of hair replacement. The modern implantation device used at DHI clinics mean that each implantation is standardised so you can be assured that your hair will be implanted in a manner that is very low risk and will look uniform with your natural hair.
Risks of Direct Hair Implantation (DHI)
Your DHI treatment will not affect your current hair, which also means that you current hair may continue to fall out, so the procedure is perfectly safe with respect to your current hair.
Due to the fact that the extraction and implantation methods used in DHI involve moving single follicles at a time, the risk of infection is very small. This is in contrast to some of the other hair replacement techniques that involved moving skin grafts and can therefore leave you with a risk of skin infections.
There is a risk that the immediate result of your DHI procedure could result in your friends and family noticing that you have had a hair replacement treatment, so if you are worried about this (or are at a high risk of being sensitive to your friends response) then you may want to consider this as a potential risk of DHI. However, the immediate effect of the DHI procedure is probably more of an advantage than a risk if you wish to improve the hair coverage of your head as soon as possible.
Dangers of Direct Hair Implantation (DHI)
If you are at risk of responding badly to local anaesthetic then this could be a potential danger of having DHI. If you have concerns about this due to any past or current medical conditions then you should discuss this with your GP in the first instance and make sure that you also discuss it in detail with your DHI team if you GP suggest that you go for a consultation.
Safety of Direct Hair Implantation (DHI)
Whilst you will almost certainly experience absolutely no side-effects after your DHI procedure, you may find that you have a small amount of swelling (oedema) a few days after your treatment. This is due to your natural recovery process and should not alert you too much. However, this does not mean that this procedure is unsafe as the swelling should go down after a couple of days and only occurs in a really small percentage of people.
