Follicular Unit Transplant
Used for the top of the head needing more dense filling, larger areas, or where fine hair placement is necessary (direct view – hairlines or front of scalp). Traditional FUT involves removing a strip of hair from the back of the head, then dissecting the hairs and individually placing them into the areas of thinning hair. A line scar is present on the back of the head which is easily covered by hair.
Follicular Unit Extraction
Hairs are removed individually, so less invasive, no stitches, and less downtime. Hair is placed into the areas of thinning. There is no line scar on the back of the head with this procedure. Small round scars are sometimes visible, but they are generally inconspicuous – this is a good option if you want to wear your hair short.
Platelet Rich Plasma
The body has a built-in ability to heal itself. Natural healing factors circulate in low levels in the bloodstream and are released in concentrated form only in wounded areas. Platelet Rich Plasma injections harness the body’s innate healing power by drawing a sample of blood, concentrating the healing factors, and re-injecting the healing factors to the affected areas of the scalp to help regrow hair.
