The good news for men and women suffering from hair loss is that today there are more options than ever before for restoring your hair for a more youthful, confident appearance. Different hair restoration treatments yield different results and the best solution is a decision that should be made between you and your clinician based on your requirements for cost, comfort, recovery, and outcome. So, what are the hair transplantation options that Contemporary Hair Transplant can offer you?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
The doctors at Chuback Medical Group utilize Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a new hair transplantation technique that is delivering superior results with no linear scaring. Because FUE is comparable to strip harvesting in the number of follicles that can be collected during one treatment, it is also comparable in minimizing the number of treatments that a person will need, reducing cost, downtime, and discomfort. In many cases, patients will only need a single treatment with FUE.
Strip harvesting is another gold standard for hair transplantation. It works by making an incision to remove small strips of donor tissue containing hair follicles and grafting the follicles to areas where hair loss has occurred. Strip harvesting makes it possible for clinicians to harvest and graft a large number of hair follicles in a single treatment session with predictability and excellent long-term outcomes.
PRP therapy is a simple non-surgical hair loss procedure that uses injections to stimulate hair growth. PRP injections have been used for treating sports injuries, post-surgery healing and knee arthritis, but is now used as and effective method for hair restoration. Platelet Rich Plasma contains a patient’s own red cells, white cells, and platelets. These platelets contain proteins that are known as “growth factors” which helps promote hair growth once injected into a patient’s scalp. Using a patient’s own blood products makes PRP injections a safe treatment since there is no chance of rejection.
