How Does a Hair Transplant Work?

Nobody wants to lose their hair. When your hairline recedes, a bald spot develops, or you simply begin to notice some thinning, it can come as a real blow to your self-confidence. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options that can restore you to a full head of hair, complete with a natural-looking hairline.

One of the most advanced and effective options is the FUE hair transplant. At Carolina Age Management Institute, we offer different hair restoration options for men and women alike. Take a minute to learn more about how the hair transplant process actually works.

About the FUE Hair Transplant

Though there are many different hair transplant methods available, our specialists at CAMI prefer the follicular unit extraction, also known as the FUE transplant.

Traditionally, hair transplants have harvested entire strips of follicles, then grafted them onto the scalp. The problem is that this approach usually results in heavy scarring. What’s more, this hair transplant method tends to produce unnatural-looking results.

The FUE method works a little bit differently. With this extraction method, a special device is used to harvest individual follicles from a part of your head that has dense hair volume. Hundreds of follicles are then grafted to the area(s) where you have experienced hair loss. The follicles are implanted deep into the scalp, securing them and creating the production of natural, healthy hair growth.

Different Technologies for the FUE Hair Transplant

At CAMI, we use state-of-the-art technology so that each FUE hair transplant produces the best possible results while emphasizing patient comfort and safety. The two primary technologies that we use are called NeoGraft and ARTAS robotic hair transplant and hair restoration. Here’s a quick summary of each technology.

NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant

Essentially, the NeoGraft method is a way to semi-automate the FUE procedure. Using pneumatic controls, NeoGraft extracts individual hairs with amazing precision, making it easy to immediately transplant them to the desired area.

ARTAS Hair Transplant

The ARTAS hair transplant, on the other hand, represents a fully automated approach to FUE. Specialized technology, including a robotic arm, offer total precision in the harvesting and transplantation of individual follicles.

Both technologies allow us to provide superior results on behalf of our clients, allowing them to once again enjoy a full head of hair that looks totally natural. With questions about either of these technologies, don’t hesitate to contact CAMI directly.

What are the Benefits of the FUE Hair Transplant?

No matter which FUE hair transplant technology you choose, there are a number of benefits you can anticipate. Some of the main benefits of the FUE hair transplant method include:

  • There is little or no damage to the hair follicles
  • Compared with other transplant methods, FUE offers a higher percentage of successfully transplanted follicles
  • The recovery time is much faster, with most patients feeling back to normal again within just a day or two
  • There are no incisions required with FUE, and there is no scarring
  • The procedure maximizes your hair volume, and both the scalp and hairline will look completely natural

These are just a few of the reasons why our hair loss specialist doctors use FUE hair transplants almost exclusively.

What about an Eyebrow Hair Transplant? Beard Hair Transplant?

Another benefit that’s worth highlighting is that FUE hair transplants aren’t only about hair on the scalp. They can also restore hair to the eyebrows, for men or for women. And for men who are looking to grow a more serious beard, the FUE method can also be used to provide a beard hair transplant.

Is the FUE Hair Transplant Right for Me?

The best way to determine your eligibility for a hair transplant is to talk with one of our specialists. We’ll take a look at your scalp, ask some questions about your medical history, then outline some of the best options for hair restoration. While some men and women will benefit from simply taking some oral or topical prescription medications for hair lossLED red light therapy, or PRP hair treatment, hair transplants are often the best way to ensure long-lasting results.
