Last month, Dr. Gray participated in the four-day Orlando Live Surgery Workshop where world renowned hair transplant experts convened for the 20th annual conference and workshop in Maitland, Florida.
The Hair Transplant and Restoration Center is an authorized provider of the Capillus272 Laser Cap, one of the most convenient non-surgical hair loss treatments for battling hair loss. Low Level Laser Therapy with Capillus272 has been found to increase hair thickness and therefore hair density for both men and women.
Have you ever caught a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror and felt a wave of frustration wash over you as you fixate on your hairline? Perhaps your hair was significantly thicker only a couple years ago or maybe you’ve noticed that you’re seeing more of your forehead than you used to. Have you ever considered hair transplant surgery? You’re not alone. In the last decade, hair transplant surgery has increased by 85%.
The ability to extract individual hair follicles requires great dexterity and hand-eye coordination. However, it also requires the right equipment. To make the tiny, circular incisions, punches can be manual or motorized, sharp or dull, and can have options to control the exact depth of the incision.
A hair transplant surgery removes healthy hair follicles from the area of the scalp that is untouched by androgenic alopecia, on the back and lower sides of the head, and transplants the follicles to the affected areas. Although the two methods of transplant surgery, follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT), have both pros and cons, here are a few common questions asked by patients that apply to each method.
During the hair restoration process, the doctor and patient partner together to determine the best approach for successful hair restoration. The consultation gives the surgeon the opportunity to study the patient’s case and allows the patient to discuss expectations and concerns without the pressure of making a large financial decision on the same visit. It is a crucial step in the process, and always precedes treatment at the Hair Transplant and Restoration Center.
