Most people think hair loss is a medical problem only impacting men. In reality, women make up about forty percent of hair loss patients. More importantly, female pattern hair loss needs to be recognized as a chronic and progressive condition.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration technique where Dr. Chernoff harvests and transplants between 3,000-4,000 individual hairs. Using tiny groups of between one and three hairs, harvested from elsewhere on your body, Dr. Chernoff will create organic, natural looking hair.
The procedure is successful since the harvested follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, and a small muscle so the body recognizes the transplanted hair as your own and is not rejected.
For women, Dr. Chernoff often combines Follicular Unit Transplantation with non-surgical treatment options. We offer an investigational treatment involving adult derived stem cells. We also combine proven medical therapies such as DHT blockers, Low Level Laser Light Therapy (LLLLT), and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with surgery for maximum results.
For women in particular, hair thinning and hair loss can be devastating. Women are also excellent candidates for the combination approach since it requires a commitment to have multiple treatments after the hair transplant. We work with patients individually to create the most effective treatment combinations.
