FUE, or follicular unit extraction, is a minimally invasive method used to harvest and transplant hair. The treatment removes individual follicular units directly from the patient's donor site, which are then replanted into the scalp.
The average person can lose 100 hairs every day, but more substantial hair loss can be a sign of more than just age. Read up on the causes, and the treatments.
A hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) permanently restores the hair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. This can be done by removing a single strip of skin and hair or removing the follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. A typical surgery involves anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts.
NeoGraft is an FDA-cleared machine used for hair transplantation. It uses a minimally invasive method that is a variation of the FUE technique, which involves harvesting hair grafts one at a time instead of cutting a strip of skin from a donor site like the back of the head (FUG technique). NeoGraft uses an automated handheld device to remove follicles and implant them in balding areas.
PRPtherapy for hair loss is a treatment thatinvolves withdrawing a patient's own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into thescalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. Other terms for this treatment include PRPhair regrowth treatment, and in the U.K., angel PRP hair regrowth and vampire hair regrowth plan.The treatment can also be combined withhair transplant surgery,microneedling, or medications such as Propecia andMinoxidil.
Eyebrow transplant surgery involves taking hair from another part of the body and transplanting it to the brow area. Healthy follicles are harvested from the donor site,typically the back of the head, and transferred to create the desired brow shape. Hair transplanted to this area will begin to grow like it did in its original location, so regular trimming will be needed.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved collection of injectable fillers used for a variety of reasons, including lifting the cheeks, smoothing marionette lines around the mouth, and plumping the lips. It may also be used to fill pitted acne scars or reduce the appearance of aging hands. Juvederm fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Results typically last between nine months to a year.
Many methods are available to lessen the appearance of scarring, and the one used will depend on the severity of the scar. Non-surgical methods include injectable fillers for concave scars, light therapy, lasers, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Deeper scars require surgery to remove.

I made the best choice to have my procedure done at the...
