Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.
Hair loss in men is almost universal. For some, it’s age-related thinning however, for many it’s an extreme loss in one or more areas of the scalp. It’s time to look better, regain a more youthful appearance, and return that lost confidence. The hair restoration studio at SCULPT is a leader in combating hair loss using advanced minimally invasive procedures and a no linear scar technique to restore a full, natural head of hair.
Why Am I Losing My Hair?
By age 40, more than half of all men have a hairline recession or noticeable balding. There are many causes of hair loss in men, but male pattern baldness — androgenetic alopecia — accounts for well over 90% of all cases. Largely genetic, this condition results because hair follicles in certain areas of the scalp are more sensitive to the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Under the influence of DHT, hair growth along the hairline and crown slows and can eventually permanently stop. The process can start as early as puberty with the onset of increased levels of hormones, but even normal levels of DHT later in life can contribute to a receding hairline or expanding bald spot.
Will Pills or Topical Treatments Regrow Hair?
Advertised over-the-counter remedies simply don’t work well, if at all. FDA-approved prescription hair loss treatments are effective, but their results reverse when you stop taking them and they’re not entirely without side effects. Only hair transplantation can permanently restore hair to areas of thinning or loss.
Is there a risk of a noticeable scar or the look of hair plugs?
No, at SCULPT, we use the latest advancement in hair transplantation known as FUE (follicular unit extraction) which is minimally invasive at the donor site and provides a more natural result. Traditionally hair transplantation was performed by surgically cutting out a long strip of scalp tissue from the back of the head to harvest hair follicles. While this provides the necessary hair for transplant it leaves a long scar, can alter the pattern of hair growth, and result in the dreaded “hair plug/dolls hair” appearance. Unfortunately, the majority of clinics and hair centers still rely on this quick, but outdated, surgical method to churn patients through the clinic.
What is the advantage of FUE Hair Restoration?
With FUE (follicular unit extraction), follicles for transplant are identified and harvested as individual units of one to four hairs. Since this is a minimally invasive technique, there is no need for large incisions. Furthermore, there are always sufficient donor hair follicles because FUE techniques can be used to harvest where traditional strip methods cannot. This increased follicle selection and precision of harvest mean only the optimal hair follicles are selected with no pain and very little to no scarring. Once healed, the harvest sites will retain their natural look and hair pattern. Better still, the transplanted follicles result in a denser and more natural-looking site so they’re hard to detect even with short hair.
What is the recovery from Hair Restoration?
At your consultation, we will personalize a hair restoration treatment for your specific features. Hair transplantation is performed as an outpatient procedure in the office using a local anesthetic. Depending on the coverage area, the full procedure may take anywhere from 4 to 7 hours. Downtime is minimal and most patients return to work in 1-2 days. If desired, a loose-fitting cap may be worn in public during the initial course of healing. In general, healing time is 7-10 days for the donor site and 2-3 weeks for the implantation site. New hair growth is not immediate, as the new follicles will need time to mature at their new site. However, growth proceeds over the following months, with significant improvements in density and volume within 6 months.
You’ll soon be looking as young and as vigorous as you feel. You’ll have the edge of confidence that comes from knowing that your rejuvenated appearance will hold up even under close inspection.
