Contact one of their offices in Torrance and Palm Springs, California, or schedule an appointment online if you’re ready to take the first steps toward a hair transplant.
Hair loss results from a combination of three factors: aging, hormone changes, and family history. Hair transplant — taking hair from one part of the scalp and transplanting it to a balding area — is the most common type of hair restoration surgery.
To be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery, you must have donor sites: healthy hair growing on the back and sides of your head. It’s also important to remember that your practitioner is moving hair from the donor sites to the balding area.
Your doctor at Revive Wellness Center will speak with you to be sure that your existing hair is sufficient for the operation.
First, the donor site is selected, then hair is harvested in varying amounts. Using traditional grafting techniques, a few hairs, or as many as 40 hairs can be harvested.
Your physician removes the hairs along with a small part of your scalp so that the follicles stay alive and intact. They then reattach the entire piece to a balding part of your head.
Other types of hair transplant surgery include:
NeoGraft is an FDA cleared, automated hair-harvesting and implantation system. It removes individual hair follicles, then immediately transplants them to a balding area of the scalp. Its precision creates natural-looking hair growth by carefully distributing your existing hair.
The harvested hair follicles continue to grow after they’re transplanted, but it’s normal for the transplanted hair to fall out in about 2-3 weeks. After the hair sheds, the follicle starts a new growth cycle in 3-4 months, so you’ll see the hair grow in again.
This automated system lets you avoid the scalpels and stitches often used during traditional transplants. Plus, NeoGraft effectively transplants hair in both men and women.
You can stop being embarrassed by hair loss. The team at Revive Wellness Center can help, so give them a call or schedule an appointment online.
