People from over 100 countries, mainly from Europe, come to Turkey for a hair transplant. They even came from Japan, Korea, Australia and Canada. International ads also had a significant impact on this topic. The film of three tourists who came to Turkey from Spain for hair transplant called “Por los pelos” has been released in Spain in recent months. Some scenes of the film were shot at Serkan Aygin Clinic Doku Medikal in Şişli, Istanbul. When the film was released, the number of Spaniards began to increase rapidly.
DR. We talked to Serkan Aygın about the technology they have developed for hair transplantation and how they turn hair transplantation into hair design.
What technologies and differences have you developed for hair transplantation?
The most important thing in hair transplantation is planning. Hair transplantation means a kind of technique. The problem of hairs on the surface and the number of hairs we plant on it actually requires purely mathematical planning. We try our best to do this analysis well. Since the surface on which the hair transplant is performed is 3D, we have developed the “Tissue Studio Ark”, a high-tech device whose patent is our property. In other words, we have produced a device that is ours in design, function and software.
In the operations part we continue our operations with the cutting edge of technique which we call micromotor and DHI. When people today come to Turkey for their hair and leave with really successful results; We have also taken the equipment that plays a vital role in DHI planting technology to the next level and continues to develop it with our investments in research and development. We have perfected the existing technology in every respect. The most important difference that Doku Medikal has made is that we have our own technological devices, which we develop and manufacture with heavy investments, instead of devices brought from abroad. It took a good engineering effort to bring such delicate equipment to a perfect level and we didn’t hesitate to make this investment. The results so far exceed expectations by far. The hair transplant industry is an industry that can grow strongly. We as Turkey are determined to carry the flag for many years to come.
Why did Doku Medikal decide to develop its own technology?
There are many hair transplant organizations and hospitals in Turkey. The main point that will differentiate us from them is our 3D modeling system that we have developed using artificial intelligence. This is how we made hair transplantation more comfortable. Doku Studio Ark is able to present the clear result to the patient and doctor in a short time. From the moment the person steps onto the device, it only takes 30 seconds for the model to be ready. 360-degree photos are taken in the next 60 seconds. The trichogram step, in which hair quality is measured, takes about 3-4 minutes. All results are presented to the doctor and patient within 5-10 minutes and a plan is made for the most appropriate procedure.
In which direction has hair transplantation developed with your touch?
What makes us different in hair transplantation is that we consider the subject of hair not only as a transplantation but also as a design. Hair design involves both mathematics and art.
Isn’t the goal to make the transplanted hair permanent? How does this happen?
They are receptors that are sensitive to DTH hormones that cause hair loss. The success of the transplanted hair depends on whether these receptors are damaged by environmental influences or not. With regular care and attention to nutrition, the transplanted hair will remain for life.
