Beard transplant at our clinic in Istanbul
Stephen, 22 years old
Stephen contacted Nordic Hair Clinic to have a beard transplant. He was not satisfied with his present beard and wanted to fill it out. During a beard transplant, you take hair follicles from the neck and create channels in the skin where you then place the hair follicle. When the hair follicle has grown solid, the hair grows as a normal beard would.
“I turned to Nordic Hair Clinic because I had very poor beard growth and I like the look of having a beard. You look more manly with a beard and it has long been very fashionable to have a beard. I also have many friends who suffer from poor beard growth. I want to be an inspiration to them that it is possible to do something about the matter,” Stephen says.
The journey begins with a consultation in Sweden
He contacted the Stockholm clinic and booked a meeting with our hair specialist. At the consultation he received all the answers to his questions and we examined his beard and the donor area in the neck where you take hair follicles from and concluded that Stephen was a good candidate for a beard transplant.
“Previously I had done a lot of research while I was considering whether to undergo a beard transplant or not. The consultation was very good,” says Stephen.
Stephen decided to have his beard transplant at our clinic in Istanbul after the consultation in Sweden. He booked in a time and flew down.
“It went very smoothly. You were never alone when you were there because there was always someone that I could talk to if I had any questions. From the moment I arrived at Arlanda to when I arrived at the clinic, I have been well treated, received plenty of information and I felt very secure.”
Three weeks after Stephen’s beard transplant – the donor area has started healing in the back of the neck
1 PRP treatment is included in the fixed price in Istanbul
After a beard transplant, we recommend PRP treatments, in order for the transplanted area to heal better and to give a more even result. 1 PRP treatment is included in the price if you receive your beard transplant at our clinic in Istanbul. Stephen also added 2 extra PRP treatments beyond that to achieve as good a result as possible and stimulate hair growth faster.
At Stephens’s third PRP treatment, the redness after the procedure had been reduced. A little hair had fallen out, which is a common part of the healing process. The hair follicle remains under the skin and will begin to produce a hair eventually. The final results can be seen 12 months after a beard transplant.
“I look forward to the time when everything has healed, and I have a beard. For those of you who are hesitating to undergo a beard transplant or are thinking about it, I would recommend that you do your research beforehand. It’s not as scary as you think. It did not hurt. You will feel better and you will get great results,” said Stephen.
“I would recommend everyone to come here if you are wanting to have a beard transplant, or a hair transplant for that matter. It is a very good service, everyone is very knowledgeable. Everything has gone great.”
