Dry skin, which refers to roughened, flaky, or scaly skin that is less flexible than normal and dry to feel, is a relatively common problem in all age groups, but is more common in elderly individuals. The water content of the stratum corneum is of paramount importance in maintaining the normal appearance and texture of human skin. Loss of integrity of the barrier function is a central factor in the development of dry skin conditions.
Having a hair transplant is a big decision for a number of reasons. The cost of a high quality hair transplant can be a significant outlay for many people. A well-done hair transplant can be virtually undetectable when performed expertly by an experienced surgeon and team. For optimal results, it is best to choose a board-certified specialist who devotes himself/herself to hair surgery and is familiar and proficient with ‘follicular unit extraction’ (FUE). A bad hair transplant can have major long-term detrimental effects on the patient, both psychological and physical.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE), also known as follicular transfer (FT), is one of two primary methods of obtaining hair follicles, for hair transplantation. The other method is called strip harvesting.
