On February 20, Lviv hosted the second international Congress dedicated to hair restoration with the help of modern surgical methods. The congress was held under the slogan: “Healthy hair – beautiful hair”.
As a result, the Congress was attended by qualified specialists in the field of trichology and hair transplantation from around the world. Despite the pandemic, leading practitioners from 12 different countries came to Ukraine to discuss current issues and share their experiences with colleagues.
The main purpose of the Congress
The Congress opening was marked by the speech of the First Deputy Mayor of Lviv – Andriy Moskalenko. The Deputy Mayor thanked everyone who took part in the Congress organization, and also emphasized the urgency of this issue as well as the significance to include these issues in today’s agenda.
The main goal of the Congress was to present to its participants the latest innovative developments in the following areas:
- hair transplantation in men and women
In addition, participants had the opportunity to share their own experiences in restoration of hair follicles in people of different ages. The program featured certain amount of theoretical information (in the format of lectures) and practical knowledge of the best international experts.
The key initiator of the Congress is the All-Ukrainian Association of Surgical Hair Restoration, chaired by Dr. Myroslava Novosilska (PhD in Medical Sciences, dermatologist-oncologist, trichologist and hair transplantologist, as well as the owner of the aesthetic medicine clinics network).
An important topic of the Congress: Hair Transplantation – The Way It Is
If you notice intense hair loss, the first thing to do is to visit a qualified trichologist. Before the procedure aimed at hair transplantation, you need to undergo a trichoscopy. This method helps determine the condition of hair, scalp, as well as the exact causes of hair loss. After all, the main purpose of treatment is primarily to eliminate the cause that led to such consequences.
The Aesthetic Medicine Clinic Myroslava Novosilska offers a modern hair transplant procedure using the FUE seamless method. The given method is suitable for men and women of different ages, who are diagnosed with:
- Androgenetic alopecia (men of 20+ years’ experience baldness in the crown, and women experience a decrease in hair growth in the frontoparietal region and the central parting).
- Traction alopecia – hair loss as a result of traumatic exposure to the hair follicle from the outside.
- Cicatricial alopecia (or scarring alopecia) – various injuries, burns or scars left after surgery.
- Correction of the hair frontline.
The procedure is a process during which transplantation of donor hair follicles is carried out from areas where there is a lot of hair and its intensive growth is observed.
Results of the Congress
The All-Ukrainian Association of Surgical Hair Restoration managed to show a fairly high level in the organization of the International Congress in Lviv. The Congress’ key speakers are members of international associations and qualified doctors of the best clinics in Europe. As a result, it was possible to bring together specialists from Turkey, Egypt, Argentina, Spain, the UAE, France, India, Germany and other countries.
When taking the floor, each speaker paid special attention to the negative impact of COVID-19 on the state of hair. A number of patients suffering from such a common disease as alopecia have increased recently. This problem affects both men and women of all ages. Most often these are people who have already had a coronavirus infection, so tackling this issue during the pandemic becomes of utmost urgency.
As a result, Myroslava Novosilska managed to organize the event taking into account all quarantine security measures, due to the hybrid – online and offline – format.
