The FUE hair transplant method is an FDA approved automated medical device for hair replacement. Rather than remove and transplant strips of scalp, as what occurs in traditional procedures, California Hair MD uses NeoGraft® technology to harvest, collect individual follicles from thick locations on the scalp and then implant them on thinning locations. Transplanting individual follicles instead of removing a strip of hair enables more precise placement of follicles, which is extremely important when transplanting hair to the hairline. This added precision offered by NeoGraft® allows Dr. Chaffoo to use his skills in both medicine and aesthetic artistry to thicken the hair on your scalp and recreate a natural-looking, attractive hairline. In addition to added precision, California Hair MD’s minimally invasive hair transplant approach also eliminates long, unattractive linear scars produced by traditional hair restoration techniques. In the case of these traditional procedures, patients’ embarrassment and self-consciousness caused by hair loss and thinning hair often gets replaced by embarrassment and self-consciousness caused by a noticeable and unattractive linear scar. But now the FUE hair replacement method allows patients to achieve beautiful, natural-looking hair restoration with less recovery and risk without linear scarring.*
Though these older hair restoration methods were viable options for some patients, advances in technology have led to minimally invasive hair restoration treatments that can achieve substantial results with less downtime and recovery. Artas i-X® Hair Transplant is a robotic hair restoration treatment that selects only the healthiest hair follicles for transplantation and removes those individual follicles without damaging surrounding hairs. Patients undergoing Artas i-X® Hair Transplant can avoid the lengthy incisions, stitches, and linear scarring associated with past hair restoration techniques.
