Hair Restoration Q & A

What is hair restoration?       

Hair restoration involves taking hair from one part of your scalp or body and grafting it to the area where your hair is thinning. Whether you have thinning hair, hair loss due to hereditary baldness, or a medical condition such as trichomoniasis, hair restoration helps fill out areas with little to no hair.

The minimally invasive procedures offered can provide you with results more quickly than traditional hair restoration procedures.


How does hair restoration work?

Hair restoration treatments often use follicular unit extraction (FUE) technology to restore hair. FUE involves removing a single follicular unit — a natural grouping of hairs — using an extraction device. With this type of hair restoration, there are no stitches or incisions.

FUE technology leaves you with only tiny rounded scars that aren’t noticeable. Your transplanted hair grows in the treated area, giving you a fuller head of hair. Saba Shabnam, MD, FAAFP, offers hair transplants, which involve the use of FUE technology.


Who can have hair restoration?

Hair restoration is ideal for almost anyone who desires thicker, younger-looking hair. Unlike traditional procedures that can cause significant scarring, the team utilizes procedures that work for men and women, whether they want to keep their hair long or short.

The providers ensure the treatments offered work for men and women and all hair types. These minimally invasive hair restoration procedures are also suitable if you only need a small area of hair transplanted or if you’re trying to hide a scar on your scalp.


Does hair restoration hurt?

Hair restoration procedures rarely cause discomfort. If needed, the team will use a local anesthetic that numbs your skin, so you shouldn’t feel any pain.

You should expect to be in the office for up to six hours, depending on how much hair you’re having restored. After your procedure, you may need to limit certain activities for a few days before returning to your routine. The providers will let you know what recovery involves and which activities you should limit if necessary.
