 Hype technology, false report hair follicle quantity, hair transplant market worries a lot


Work under pressure, eat unhealthy, stay up late and exercise less In autumn and winter, with the falling leaves, is there a lot of hair left you?

According to the survey released by the National Health Commission, the number of hair loss population in China has exceeded 250 million. On average, one out of every six people has hair loss, and people aged 20 to 40 account for a large proportion. According to the World Health Organization, 84% of Chinese people lose their hair before the age of 30.

Hair loss population surge, so that the first-class business is more and more popular. Zhang Yu, Deputy Secretary General of the medical cosmetology Professional Committee of the Chinese Association of traditional and Western medicine, said that in 2017, the market scale of hair transplantation was about 9.2 billion yuan, and in 2018, it soared to 14 billion yuan.

Such a huge market also brings a variety of hidden worries. Liu Qing, director of the hair transplantation center of the Ninth Peoples Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University School of medicine, said that hair transplantation is to take out the healthy hair follicles from the back of the human body and transplant them to the required areas through special equipment. Hair transplantation is a trade-off. The density of the back hair is removed and the front hair is covered. However, many irregular hair transplanting institutions over package and hype hair transplanting technology, falsely report the number of hair follicles to increase the cost of hair transplanting, mislead the choice of consumers, and damage the interests of consumers.

At the same time, the number of employees in Chinas hair industry is also very scarce. Zhang Yu disclosed that the current registered members of the national industry association are only more than 300. Because the qualified doctors with rich clinical experience can not be hired or can not afford to be hired, shadow doctors came into being - the qualified doctors do not operate in person, and the whole process is replaced by nurses.

Han Yan, President of Yonghe hair transplant technology research institute, pointed out that hair transplantation is a medical behavior. Hair transplant institutions should have the qualification of practicing medicine, and the chief surgeon should also have the relevant qualification of practicing medicine. Besides, they should have professional training and long-term clinical experience. If the medical conditions of informal institutions are not up to standard or the operation of unqualified doctors is not skilled enough, it may lead to the failure of hair transplantation due to hair follicle infection.

What should I do if I lose my hair?

Liu Qing: if you are just starting to lose your hair, you can first change your health status, such as more exercise, healthy diet, not staying up late, etc., and the hair may grow again. If you often lose a lot of hair, you should find a professional body for examination and treatment. Many hospitals have hair loss clinic in dermatology department, which can ask doctors for help. Any treatment is to find a way to control the loss of control, failure of control is to consider hair, hair can not be achieved, then consider hair transplantation.

What is the right situation for hair transplantation?

How to choose formal institutions?

Liu Qing: dont believe the propaganda of the organization easily. First, observe whether the qualification of employees is placed in a prominent position in the organization. For the consultation of consumers, the formal institutions often have free consultation services at the initial stage, rather than putting forward hair transplant programs without any inspection. Before hair transplantation, there must be sufficient communication, so that institutions and consumers can understand each other and leave time for consumers to think carefully, so as to reduce disputes.
