What is hair restoration and how does it work?
Hair restoration is a medical procedure aimed at regrowing hair in areas where it has been lost or thinning has occurred. There are two primary methods of hair restoration: surgical and non-surgical. Surgical hair restoration involves transplanting hair follicles from one part of the body (often the back of the head) to the balding or thinning areas. Non-surgical methods include medications, such as minoxidil, and treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), and scalp microneedling. These non-surgical approaches stimulate hair growth and improve the quality of existing hair.
Is hair transplant surgery painful?
Hair transplant surgery is performed under local anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure. However, some discomfort or mild pain may be experienced after the surgery, but it can usually be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon.
How long does it take to recover after a hair transplant?
After undergoing a hair transplant at Davis Hair Restoration, most patients can expect a recovery period of 7-10 days. Within this timeframe, any minor discomfort, swelling, or redness generally diminishes. While hair growth progresses over the subsequent months, patients are usually able to resume their daily routines within a week, following our comprehensive aftercare guidance.
How much does a hair transplant cost?
The cost of hair restoration procedures at Davis Hair Restoration varies based on individual needs, the degree of hair loss, and the chosen technique. To get an accurate price tailored to your circumstances, please schedule a consultation with us. We’re dedicated to delivering exceptional care and ensuring transparent pricing for our patients.
What is the difference between FUE and FUT hair transplant methods?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) are two different methods of hair transplantation.
FUE involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area using a small punch tool. The extracted follicles are then implanted into the recipient area of the scalp. FUE leaves small, dot-like scars that are less noticeable and allows for a quicker recovery time.
FUT, on the other hand, involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area, typically from the back of the head. The strip is then dissected into individual grafts, which are implanted into the recipient area. FUT leaves a linear scar that can be more noticeable, but it allows for a larger number of grafts to be transplanted in a single session.
In summary, FUE involves extracting individual follicles one by one, while FUT involves removing a strip of scalp and dissecting it into grafts. Both methods have their advantages and it’s important to consult with a hair transplant specialist to determine which method is best suited for your specific case.
