Permanent Hair Restoration
Article by Scott E. Kasden, MD

Approximately 50% of all males, and up to 40% of all females will experience permanent and significant hair loss during their lifetime.
Traditional restoration techniques involved removing a strip of scalp from the back where baldness doesn't usually occur, and moving it to a thin or bald area. This left an unsightly, tell-tale scar. Many times the restoration looked like corn rows or plugs.
Modern techniques leave no scar, and reconstruct the hair line with a natural, permanent result. This is done by removing follicles individually (sometimes 2 or 3 at a time), and implanting them individually. This technique allows the hair to be placed so that it grows in the same direction as neighboring hair, which is critical for the natural result.
This technique is called FUE (follicular unit extraction). I am using a newly introduced unit called AcuGraft tm to accomplish this, along with hair technicians that are second to none! My team has been doing FUE for over 12 years, and boasts over 98% "take".
