It is very significant for someone experiencing hair loss to seek the experts΄advice from the early signs of thinning, as hair loss treatment requires responsible and effective solutions.
· Men and women experiencing Male or Female Pattern Hair Loss
· Specific cases of hair loss due to diseases, therapies, traumas, etc
· Corrective procedures and restoration of eyebrows, eyelashes etc
Hair loss due to severe stress (Telogen Effluvium) is a reversible phenomenon and hair regrows a few months after hair loss manifestation.
Hair follicles on the front and top of the scalp are susceptible to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), derivative of testosterone. Testosterone, due to the action of the enzyme 5-a reductase is converted into DHT, which acts on the hair follicles receptors. The prolonged action of DHT on the susceptible hair follicles leads to their gradual miniaturization and shrinking.
As a result, some of the hair follicles become inactive while others loose their ability to produce healthy hair; hair gradually becomes weaker and finally falls out.
The mechanism described above helps us realize what really happens when someone experiences hair loss for the first time: Progressive reduction in hair density is due to hair miniaturization rather than hair loss and this leads to the appearance of thinning.
More simply, we could say that DHT΄s action shortens the Anagen Phase-the period of hair growth. As a consequence, a great percentage of hair stops growing and enters the Telogen Phase, weakens and finally is shed.

Each hair follicle has a genetic predisposition. Single hair follicles are distributed along the frontal hairline and as we move toward the back part of the scalp, hair follicles constitute groups of 2, 3 or even 4 hairs.
During hair transplantation procedures, doctors extract hair follicles from the donor area and reimplant them to the thinning areas of the scalp.
The transplanted hair follicles preserve their genetic resistance to androgens even in the thinning area, where they continue to grow normally throughout one΄s life time.
BERGMANN KORD doctors extract and reimplant hair follicles only from the scalp. Hair transplantation cannot provide natural and refined aesthetic results if performed with hair follicles from other parts of the body.
Hair transplantation at BERGMANN KORD can ensure a permanent, natural and flawless aesthetic result.
Limitations also exist in the case of inadequate hair supply or laxity of the donor area, although modern techniques can attain maximum exploitation of the donor area and more than 90% persons interested in hair transplantation are suitable candidates.
In some cases there may appear small scabs at the recipient sites, but they heal within a few days.
This way of hair transplantation is not at all effective, as new hair is perceived as a foreign body and is rejected. This happens even in the case that hair comes from relatives or people of the same blood group.
When is the appropriate time to undergo hair transplantation, at the initial or the advanced stages of hair loss?
As a future prospect, hair cloning could be the solution to a limited donor area supply and enable many more candidates to be suitable for hair transplantation.
Which is the proper solution for young men experiencing hair loss? Hair transplantation or hair loss treatment?
During your personal consultation with the doctor, you can view pictures of the different stages of the post-operative course in order to have a clear and reliable insight into the post-operative period. The doctor will give you a more analytical description of the post operative course.
BERGMANN KORD doctors implement the most advanced hair transplantation techniques, which have a minimum impact on skin strain, both at the donor and the recipient sites.
At BERGMANN KORD, all of our planning aims at providing undetectable results. It is the most important parameter that renders hair transplantation successful: it must be completely unnoticeable.
The number of sessions depends on the type and extent of thinning, the desirable degree of density and other factors as set out in your Personalized Hair Transplantation Plan. Our doctors will reliably inform you of the number of sessions needed.
FUE requires a 5-month interval between 2 subsequent sessions.
BERGMANN KORD΄s treatments are of natural origin, safe and have no side effects.
BERGMANN KORD΄s invigorating hair therapies are implemented even in cases of advanced hair loss and are carried out through Volumed Treatment and Soft Laser.

• Inappropriate nutritional habits
• Exposure to polluted or dusty environment
• Stress or emotional pressure
Sufficient sleep of good quality is a prerequisite for good overall health and the organism’ s sound functioning.
Polluted environment, such as urban environment, demands further haircare: frequent shampooing and protection from the damaging factors.
Shampoo, conditioner and mask must be selected according to the standards and needs of our hair type.
Coiffure & Hairstyling
We should limit chemical hair styling techniques as well as tight and frequent binding.
Sea and Sun
Exposure to UV rays should be avoided, especially during summer. We should use the appropriate protective products that shield hair from harmful effects.
Contact with sea or chlorinated water dehydrates hair, depriving it of its shine and vitality. If you have tired hair after vacations, don΄t hesitate to ask our advice on how to reconstruct and rebuild your hair effectively and promptly. With no further obligation, our experts will give you individualized tips for the revitalization and strengthening of your hair.
• Daily hair washing needs the appropriate mild shampoo
• We shouldn΄t use very hot water during hair washing. We should use small quantities of shampoo, conditioner or mask
• During hair washing, we massage gently the scalp with our fingertips. Intense friction should be avoided
• Massage is more beneficial for people experiencing hair loss, as it stimulates microcirculation on scalp
• Conditioner is necessary for medium length hair and long hair, especially dehydrated and dried ones
• Same goes for hair masks, which deeply hydrate hair and, depending on their ingredients, they reconstruct, rebuild, protect color, nourish etc, as they develop penetrating action
• For more shine, cold water can be used at the last rinse
• At the end we gently wipe hair with a towel
• Attention is required when using a hair dryer. It should be kept at least 8 inches away from hair, and operate at medium temperature. We should not dry hair completely, only the areas that need styling
• To provide the desired styling, we make gentle movements with the brush
• Colored or highlighted hair requires further specialized care
As for returning to work, some people are back even the day right after the procedure, while others prefer having a hair transplant procedure at the beginning of their vacations.
