SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant
Here is information about smartprep2 hair transplant
What is SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant?
SmartPrep2 hair transplant extracts the own blood and centrifuge then concentrated blood platelet is injected on the thinning spot. It is noticeable to see the growth of new hair after 3-5 months due to various growth factors in blood platelet induces cell proliferation, stem cell cloning, promotion of blood vessel production and cell renewal. Also, it promotes the hair regeneration and makes the root and follicle of hair strong.
Appropriate for those who
- Are concerned about the partial hair loss
- Are concerned about hair loss after giving birth
- Are concerned about alopecia seborrheica
- Are concerned about the hair loss on top of the head
- Are concerned about the hair loss due to poor blood circulation
- Wish to get natural treatment with less side effects
What is Hair Loss?
Hair loss is when there are more hair loss than growing hair and able to see from the outer appearance. Unlike nails, hair goes through a growth cycle which has a period of anagen, catagen, and telogen. Patients with hair loss usually have more hair of telogen rather than anagen.
Cause of Hair Loss
Fatty diet, excessive drinking and smoking may block the nutrient supplying on the hair root, reproduction of various germs, frequent perm, dying, blow drying, and chemical substances may contaminate the scalp and promotes the hair loss.
When stress is accumulated, it stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and autonomic nervous system. Then, the adrenaline is secreted which constricts the blood vessels to stiffens the scalp for poor nutrition supplying on the hair follicle.
Deficiency of Nutrition
Hair loss may occur due to excessive or unbalanced diet and it can cause malnutrition, effecting the proper hair growth.
Usually, men have more genetic factor than women. Genetic is a form and cause of hair loss but since it is not the main factor, it requires continuous care for skin cell activation and scalp condition to prevent the hair loss.
Blood Circulation Disorder
Wearing hat or pressure on the scalp may cause blood circulation disorder with limited air circulation which can decrease the nutrition supplying on the hair root and cause the hair loss.
Male hormones expand the sebaceous glands causing the sebum secretion. Then, the dandruff is combined with sebum which blocks the pores. This causes the supplying of nutrition on the root to be blocked which weakens and thins the hair that will lead to hair loss.
Stages of Hair Loss
SmartPrep2 - Principal of Hair Transplant
The concentrated growth factors (VEGF, PDGF, FGF, IGF, HGF, TFG) in SmartPrep2 induce new blood vessel development and help more stem cell differentiation. Ultimately, this induces the growth of fibroblast and endothelial cells that turns back ongoing hair loss stages of 1,2,3 to normal.
※ SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant is effective on thin hair (3rd stage of hair loss) because it allows the regeneration of hair. However, regular hair transplant is more effective on the area where there is no hair at all.
|Nomal Stage||Stage 1||Stage 2||Stage 3|
General scalp care only improves the condition of scalp and hair follicle injection can improve thickness of hair. SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant extracts adult stem cell to be transplanted which induces new blood vessel development from deep inside the scalp, thus strengthens hair with fast growth speed.
Process of SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant
Why? Why would you choose Wonjin’s SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant?
Able to Analyze Various Different Causes
SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant is appropriate if there is fine soft hair but it is recommended to combine SmartPrep2 with regular hair transplant procedure if there is no fine soft hair. Therefore, it requires different procedures for different conditions. Wonjin is fully committed to provide a high-class hair loss treatment to our patients.
Reduced Concern of Leaving Scar on Scalp with Non-incision Injection
Different from regular hair transplant procedure, incision is not required with SmartPrep2. It is treated with injection that regenerates blood vessels which turns back the hair loss stages of 1, 2, 3 to the normal stage.
Maximizes the Effect by Blood Vessel Regeneration
The hair in the hair loss stage may have simple symptoms including scalp damage, hair damage, and scalp inflammation but more complex symptoms exist in the inner part, which are sebum secretion disorder, destruction of the hair follicle cells and blood vessel contraction. SmartPrep2 Hair Transplant procedure regenerates the blood vessel from deep inside the scalp which turns back the hair loss stages of 1, 2, 3 to the normal stage.
What is Stem Cell?
Human Body is consisted of at least of 200 types and 60 trillion cells. Most cells are being used in its own tissue such as bone structure, nerve, and muscle but there are special cells that can differentiate into different tissue, and these are Stem Cells.
Increased Survival Rate of Lipokit Fat Grafting
SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting has nearly no gene modification since it is extracting highly concentrated stem cell with no developed stem cells included. Therefore, SmartPrep2 Fat Grafting helps wrinkles and improves skin elasticity by providing nutrients of highly concentrated growth factors to the nearby tissues.

Before the Surgery
-Stop taking the medicines that disturb hemorrhage control (birth control pills, hormone drugs, vitamin E, and aspirin) at least 2 weeks before the surgery. Notify the consultant and the surgeon if you are under treatment of hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and thyroids.
-Stop smoking cigarettes at least 3 days before the surgery and notify the consultant and the surgeon if you have cold to check your respiratory system.
-Taking shower with mild type soap on the day of surgery is recommended and remove contact lenses, jewelry, accessories, nail polish, and make-up before coming to the clinic.

-Prepare comfortable clothes (hoodie or button down shirt), mask, scarf, cap, and sunglasses. It is hard to drive after the surgery, so please come with the guardian.
-There will be some swelling and bruising for about 2 days after surgery and will subside gradually. Do not sleep with your face down and use 2-3 pillows to help reduce the swelling.
-Do not apply pressure or rub the fat grafted area. (For forehead fat grafting, please wear loose fitting hat or recommended not to wear hat.)
-Please sleep with straight posture. (Especially for cheeks)
