A bad hair day is better than a no hair day
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the 'donor site', to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness.
FUE is an advanced surgical hair restoration technique that’s less invasive than more traditional hair transplants. This surgical hair loss solution leaves no linear scar and offers permanent results—which means you can grow your own hair back. With FUE, one hair follicle at a time is extracted from your donor area to transplant to your thinning or balding areas. Root Harvest will help you find out if surgical hair restoration is right for you.
FUT is a common outpatient surgical hair restoration technique that gives you permanent, natural-looking results. The best part about FUT is that it allows you to grow your own hair back, while providing maximum density. With this technique, a strip of tissue containing multiple follicular units is extracted from the donor area at back of your scalp. The follicular units are then separated into individual grafts of 1-4 hairs each for transplantation to your thinning areas.
Platelet rich plasma aka PRP is your own concentrated blood plasma which may contain up to seven times the number of platelets found in your blood.
There are instances when a patient does not have an adequate amount of donor hair for transplantation or is not looking to have a surgical procedure performed
Compassionate and honest. Focusing on one individual at a time.
Follicular Unit Extraction in recent years has become one of the widely practiced minimally invasive harvesting techniques used during hair restoration surgery.
There are several advantages such as rapid recovery, minimal scarring and reduced post-operative discomfort.
FUE is an extremely precise technique which involves a 0.8-1.0mm coring device that extracts one graft individually at a time. Each person can yield 1-4 follicles per graft, this is completely dependent on your donor area and no two patients will have the same.
FUE has minimal to no scarring as well as minimal to no downtime. The entire procedure is performed using local anesthesia. Light sedation is available if necessary as long as you have not driven yourself on the day of the procedure to the office. During your procedure you are able to have conversations with the staff, work or even watch a movie.
Follicular Unit Transplantation or better known as the "strip technique" is where a patient's hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units or grafts. The "safe zone", "sweet spot" or permanent zone of the scalp is where the follicles are resistant to hair follicle miniaturization or balding. Our quadruple Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will take the strip from that area. The strip procedure is performed under local anesthesia. A light sedation is available if necessary as long as you have not driven yourself to our office on the day of your procedure.
Once the strip is surgically removed, it is placed under a microscope where grafts are created into their naturally occurring groups by our highly trained and skilled technicians. While waiting for the next steps the patient can watch movies, listen to music, talk with the staff, take a nap or even conduct business if necessary.
Platelet rich plasma aka PRP is your own concentrated blood plasma which may contain up to seven times the number of platelets found in your blood. PRP also contains growth factors, vascular endothelial growth factors, transforming growth factors and other bioactive proteins that help wound healing and has shown to be helpful in male and female pattern hair loss and thinning. On the day of the procedure, the blood is drawn, then it is spun in our centrifuge where at that time the platelets are harvested and then immediately injected into the scalp. There is minimal discomfort, no downtime and you may return to work the very next day.
There are instances when a patient does not have an adequate amount of donor hair for transplantation or is not looking to have a surgical procedure performed. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a viable option, by simulating the appearance of real hair it creates the illusion of increased density or a new hairline. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is also very effective at covering up unsightly scars. Put your concerns rest as only the highest sourced organic pigmentation is used and this process differs from standard tattooing in that simulated follicles will not alter in color.
