What Type of Hair Transplant Is Best for You?

hair transplant

Today’s advances in medical technology make hair transplant procedures more effective and accessible than ever before. Learn about the different options available, and which ones are best for you.

Consider the extent and cause of your hair loss or thinning before determining which procedures are best for you.

  • Follicular Unit Transplantation, often referred to as FUT, or strip harvesting. FUT is a traditional technique that involves the removal of a strip of scalp from the donor area, allowing for transplant of a large number of grafts in a single session. Men and women over 25 experiencing pattern baldness are the best candidates. FUT is beneficial for treating baldness or thinning at the front of the head. Having thicker hair at the donor site is crucial to receive the best coverage. This procedure is not recommended for those suffering from hair loss from disease or medication.
  • Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE, has gained popularity in recent years due to its minimally invasive nature, and is ideal for people who want a shorter recovery time with less pain. FUE allows individual hair follicles to be extracted from a donor site, leaving small dot size scars that often go undetected.1
  • Regenerative therapy using biologics and stem cells is often supplemented with the procedure, and can be used with or without a transplant to help hair regrow. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy shows promise for hair growth. Studies show that injectable PRP therapy in conjunction with a transplant offers faster recovery and appearance of new hair growth.2
  • Laser Therapy is a great option for both men and women to regenerate hair growth with laser light. This non-invasive treatment can help activate follicles and stimulate hair growth, and can be used in the convenience of home.
