What is Follicular Unit Hair Transplant?
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) is a means of restoring the hair through means of harvesting and transplanting individual hairs. Using between 1-3 hairs harvested from another part of the patient’s body, Dr. Chernoff can create natural-looking hair. As the hair is replanted, your body will recognize it as its own, so there is no rejection of the newly implanted hairs. More than one treatment is typically necessary. Since all patients are different, the hair can begin to regrow on its own between 4-6 months.Results look natural as the newly ingrained hair will grow similar to any other hair.
What is a Scalp Reduction?
A Scalp Reduction may benefit those with bald spots or noticeable thinning areas. This process involves surgically removing the balding areas of the scalp and repositioning the healthier areas. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment and find out if a Scalp Reduction may be right for you.
Are there other methods of Hair Transplantation?
We offer other non-surgical options to help restore your hair to look healthier and denser. Laser treatments or topical nutrients can be used by themselves or along with a hair transplant. Our medical staff will inform you of all possible approaches and may suggest a combination of options to best suit your aesthetic goals.
