We Keep You Looking Youthful

Whether you’ve recently noticed signs of hair thinning or have been experiencing baldness for a while, you don’t have to live with it if you don’t want to. Hair loss is incredibly common in men, and there are surgical and non-surgical solutions that can restore you to a full head of hair, a thicker beard, mustache, or eyebrows, and even give you chest hair.

What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many reasons why men lose their hair. The most widely known is male pattern baldness, which is genetic and responsible for most hair loss that men experience. Male pattern baldness is caused by sensitivity to a hormone called DHT, which makes follicles shrink over time. Eventually, follicles become so small hair cannot grow out of them. 

Hair Loss Due To Health Issues

Other common issues that result in hair loss include health issues like cancer, high blood pressure, alopecia, nutritional deficiencies, and scalp infections, to name a few. Certain restrictive hairstyles and anxiety disorders can also result in hair thinning.

Hair Grafting - What Is It Exactly?

Hair loss can be embarrassing and make you lose confidence in your appearance. Hair grafting of the past was complicated and had mixed results. But the procedure has evolved over the past two decades, and today there are safer and more effective techniques. The two leading modalities are Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT).

Follicular Unit Excision 

FUE harvests follicular units one by one from the back of the head and transplants them to the areas experiencing hair loss. FUE can happen under local anesthesia in the office while the patient reads or listens to music. Many patients prefer FUE because there is no noticeable scarring and no extensive recovery required.

FUE is ideal for those who prefer to wear their hair short, and can also be used for transplants in virtually any other place on the body, such as the beard, chest, or eyebrows. After just one day, FUE patients’ hair will start to grow naturally and results will last a lifetime. 

Follicular Unit Transplant 

FUT relies on removing a strip of hair from the back of the scalp to the areas undergoing hair loss. This procedure requires an experienced specialist with an eye for aesthetics for the best results. FUT is more invasive, but it allows for maximum transplantation of high-quality follicles. 

There is an incision scar with FUT, but this can be hidden by all except extremely short hairstyles. FUT minimizes potential damage done to individual follicles, which is a concern that can happen with FUE. Patients typically require a recovery period of 7-10 days and can expect hair to begin thickening over the next 4-12 months. Results last for life.

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration

While both FUE and FUT are very effective, not everyone wants to or can undergo surgery. There are medications that can arrest the effects of DHT on hair follicles, and routine treatments using PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, that stimulate hair growth. 

Prescription Treatments

Minoxidil and Finasteride are FDA-approved drugs that prevent the hormone DHT from shrinking hair follicles and impeding hair growth. Minoxidil is found in over-the-counter topical treatments like Rogaine. Finasteride, known as Propecia, also curtails the effects of DHT and is available via prescription. 

PRP Hair Restoration

You may have heard of ‘vampire facials’ that use a patient's own blood for facial rejuvenation. These facials use platelet-rich plasma, which comes from blood harvested from the patient, that is purified and then injected into the target area. PRP is rich in growth factors and has been shown to stimulate the growth of existing hair follicles as well as generate new growth. PRP hair restoration requires routine 1-hour sessions that are spaced months apart.
