HAIR RESTORATION

MINIMALLY INVASIVE HAIR RESTORATION PROCEDURES

NeoGraft® revolutionized hair restoration in California. Previous hair transplant methods such as the strip method require invasive surgery, IV sedation and extended recovery period, and leave noticeable linear scars across the scalp. On the other hand, manual Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) can produce more efficient outcomes than the strip method but requires a longer operation. At California Hair MD, Dr. Chaffoo offers NeoGraft®, an automated FUE hair transplant method that eliminates the disadvantages of manual FUE while improving on several aspects of the strip method.

INTRODUCING

ARTAS i-X® Robotic
HAIR RESTORATION

Technological advances have led to minimally invasive hair restoration treatments that achieve substantial results with less downtime and recovery. Artas i-X® Hair Transplant is a robotic hair restoration treatment that selects the healthiest hair follicles for transplantation and removes the individual follicles without damaging surrounding hairs. Patients going through Artas i-X® Hair Transplant avoid lengthy incisions, stitches and linear scarring that come with past hair restoration techniques.

In the traditional strip method, a strip of scalp is removed from the back of the head, which requires sutures and results in a long and primitive scar. The hair follicles are then removed with forceps while under a microscope, which increases the chance of harming the follicles. Recovery from strip method hair restoration is typically a month or more, though the procedure itself is relatively short. In the manual FUE method – the other traditional hair restoration technique – there is a higher follicle survival rate and lower recovery time, but it is a much longer and more deliberate procedure than the strip method.

Thanks to NeoGraft® and Artas technologies, California Hair MD now offers minimal invasive hair restoration combining the effectiveness of FUE and the speed of the strip method with none of the disadvantages of either hair restoration approaches.

These advances in hair restoration technology have resulted in drastic improvements in all stages of the hair restoration process; technique, safety, convenience, and results. Automated FUE method is minimally invasive and does not require IV sedation. Moreover, in the procedure no lateral incision, sutures or stitches are used. So this results in hair restoration with no linear scars. NeoGraft® uses a “touch free” system that separates and mists follicles regularly during extraction and while waiting to be implanted, ensuring that more follicles survive the process. With low level light therapy, follicles are stimulated to produce hair growth more efficiently and achieve a higher rate and percentage than traditional hair restoration techniques.*

FAQs: Hair Restoration

There are many causes of hair loss in both men and women. Male pattern hair loss or androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men. 95% of cases of male pattern hair loss are caused by androgenic alopecia. Approximate 40% of men suffer from hair loss by the age of 4050% by the age of 50 and 60% by the age of 60 and so on. 

Female pattern hair loss is more complex in terms of causes. There are multiple causes for female pattern hair loss which do include androgenic alopecia,drug interaction,hormonal imbalance, autoimmune disorders, and metabolic or systemic illnesses. Certain hairstyles and chemical ties and hair straightening products may also affect hair loss. A temporary cause of hair loss in both men and women is telogen effluvium which is a temporary or shock loss of hair secondary to prolonged illness, fever, emotional distress and trauma.

 The advantage to seeing the physicians a California Hair MD is that we have the services of both a board-certified dermatologist who who evaluates and treats patients for the non surgical, medical causes of hair loss and a triple board-certified plastic surgeon who can provide the expertise in the surgical Hair Restoration in appropriate cases.

No ethical physician can guarantee the results of aesthetic procedures and services. This is because the final outcome is somewhat unpredictable and due in part to the patient specific anatomy and healing process. What we can guarantee is an ethical, honest and transparent evaluation and treatment plan for each patient which we see.

The answer is both yes or no. Yes Hair Restoration properly performed and the appropriate candidates can result in a permanent improvement in the patients hair loss. However unless a patient includes long-term medical therapy it is likely that he or she will continue to lose hair in other regions of the scalp which were not treated with a Hair Restoration procedure. The best results in Hair Restoration include a careful evaluation medical treatment plan and properly selected surgical procedure in the right patient.

After hair transplantation is performed the individual hair follicles will go into a resting phase called telogen effluvium. Then in about three months the hairs will begin to gradually grow as they enter the anagen or growth phase.

Surgery is but one option in the complete evaluation and treatment of patients who suffer from hair loss. Surgery combined with a properly selected medical treatment program will provide the best chance for a long lasting result for the treatment of your hair loss. Our practice offers the latest evidence-based and FDA approved medical and treatment options for men and women who suffer from hair loss.
