Q Hair thinning among young people has become a common problem these days. What are the causes of hair thinning?
A Hair thinning is becoming a common problem amongst youngsters these days primarily due to the lifestyle they lead. Earlier, thinning was considered a sign of ageing, but today all agerelated problems are seen in young people as well. Stress at work, peer pressure and improper diet trigger hormonal fluctuations, which in turn trigger the thinning pattern.
Q How long is the procedure for the application of Anacover and how many sittings does a person require?
A It is a single session procedure and does not need any applications later. After the first session, the patient is called for review and if need be, a touch-up can be done. In rarest of rare cases if the pigment fades after a few years one can do a touch-up.
Q How does Anacover work to replicate the natural appearance of hair follicles on the scalp? Please elaborate on the techniques that Anacover uses.
A With the help of specialised rollers and needles we create an appearance of hair follicle on the scalp and infuse natural derma pigments into them. These pigments remain suspended in the upper two layers of epidermis and do not penetrate or disintegrate. The roller bears needles having almost same diameter of a hair follicle and that is how a follicle can be simulated.
Q Please highlight the various situations in which Anacover can be effectively used.
A Anacover can be done for any person who faces a problem of scalp visibility, the causes of which can vary. Anacover can also benefit people who have scars on scalp. It can be used in cases of alopecia when people lose eyebrows and in post mastectomy cases to recreate the areola and nipple.
Q What sets Anacover apart from other similar products in the market?
A There is a less likely possibility of a similar product in market as the technique is under patent. Richfeel has always kept up its legacy of bringing the best in the world of trichology to India. The derma pigments and the rollers are specially designed to create hair follicle simulation.
Q Does the treatment involve any after-care and maintenance?
A There is no major special care required except for a period of fortnight during when one should not apply any topical applications like oil and hair vitalisers.
Q Are there any side effects of using Anacover?
A Anacover has no side effects. The patient selection is done after careful screening and checking the health status and fitness of the patient.
