Hair transplant surgery has evolved with the use of newer instruments and techniques to create better aesthetic outcomes. Specialized microscopes have been designed exclusively for hair transplant surgery with improved brightness and a larger viewing area to carefully harvest follicular units (natural groups of hair) of better quality.
Exposure to the harmful radiation of the sun causes damage to the genetic material of the skin cells. These altered skin cells divide uncontrollably to form a tumour mass. These appear as new growth or sore that does not heal. The cancer of the basal cells is called basal cell cancer and that of keratinocytes is called squamous cell cancer. The cancer of the melanocytes is called melanoma. The basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer together are categorised as non-melanoma skin cancers.
