Hair Restoration Q & A
Why would I need hair restoration?
You can lose hair for all these reasons::
- Physical stress (illness)
- Extreme emotional stress
- Fungal infections (ringworm)
- Hormonal imbalances (including menopause)
- Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder causing hair loss)
- Traction alopecia (hair loss from wearing tight braids or ponytails)
- Androgenetic alopecia (inherited hair loss that’s not reversible)
However, in many cases, your hair regrows after the problem is treated.
Of all these conditions, the most common is androgenetic alopecia, also called male-pattern and female-pattern baldness. Androgenetic alopecia makes your hair follicles sensitive to a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone).
DHT causes the follicles to shrink. In the early stages, the damaged follicles grow thinner hair. Then, over time, they stop producing hair.
Male-pattern baldness causes the classic receding hairline and hair loss on the top of your head. Female-pattern baldness causes thinning over the entire scalp but is often most noticed in the hair part.
What happens during hair restoration?
Hair restoration transplants healthy hair follicles into the balding or thinning areas. Traditionally, physicians have restored your hair by cutting away a big strip of healthy hair. Then they manually separated the individual follicles from the strip, made an incision in your scalp, and implanted the follicle.
This technique leaves a scar where the donor strip is removed and carries a higher risk of damaging the follicles.
Dr. Malouf uses the advanced NeoGraft, a state-of-the-art follicular unit extraction (FUE) device.
Dr. Malouf uses the automated NeoGraft to extract individual hair follicles. He immediately transfers that follicle to a carefully chosen spot, using the NeoGraft device to implant it in the balding area.
As the NeoGraft quickly and delicately harvests one follicle at a time, Dr. Malouf can artistically restore natural-looking hair growth all over your head.
What are the benefits of hair restoration using NeoGraft?
Since NeoGraft is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require incisions, you only need a local anesthetic. After the procedure, you’ll experience minimal discomfort, no stitches or staples, and you recover faster.
