Hair Restoration Surgery

Follicular Unit Transplant
Used for the top of the head needing more dense filling, larger areas, or where fine hair placement is necessary (direct view – hairlines or front of scalp).  Traditional FUT involves removing a strip of hair from the back of the head, then dissecting the hairs and individually placing them into the areas of thinning hair.  A line scar is present on the back of the head which is easily covered by hair.

Follicular Unit Extraction
Hairs are removed individually, so little dissection is needed.  Hair is placed into the areas of thinning. There is no line scar on the back of the head with this procedure.  Small round scars are sometimes visible, but they are generally inconspicuous – this is a good option if you want to wear your hair short.

Punch Graft
Punch graft transplant is done for areas needing improved hair density/bulk on the crown of the head or for small areas not in direct view.  Hairs are removed as a 4mm plug and placed in the affected area. May require filling-in with single unit hair transplant at a later date depending on desired end result.

Platelet Rich Plasma

1-2 treatments/year
The body has a built-in ability to heal itself.  Natural healing factors circulate in low levels in the bloodstream and are released in concentrated form only in wounded areas.  Platelet Rich Plasma injections harness the body’s innate healing power by drawing a sample of blood, concentrating the healing factors, and reinjecting the healing factors to the affected areas of the scalp to help regrow hair. 

Low Level Laser Therapy

Twice weekly (30 minute treatment) 
Increases circulation to help hair follicles grow to their proper size and produce thicker, healthier hairs.
