Surgical or Non-Surgical Hair Treatment – Which is more Suitable?

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Dushan Stankovic

Hair replacement has become quite frequent these days due to the problem of hair loss increasing at an alarming rate. Earlier, it was a notion that receding hairlines occurred due to aging, but it is not uncommon to find hair loss issues in people in their 20s. But before undergoing any particular hair treatment, you need to weigh its pros & cons, including the cost and safety. There are options for both surgical and non-surgical hair implants.

What is surgical hair restoration?

This type of hair replacement involves some kind of elaborate and complex procedure performed on you. It facilitates healthy growth of hair follicles that have been transplanted into the scalp. It is slightly costly, but also effective. However, there is the possibility of side effects after the surgery including scarring and painful sensations.

What is non-surgical hair restoration?

Some people are not comfortable with surgery, which is why they opt for non-surgical procedures that entail hair follicles being transplanted individually.

For example the ARTAS technique uses digital mapping and a robotic arm to locate donor areas from your scalp, and generates permanent results in the form of healthy and natural-looking hair.

Moreover, there is zero linear scarring and speedy recovery time. ARTAS is also quite cost-effective and non-invasive at the same time.

Hair cloning has also generated a lot of interest where a person’s hair sample is extracted and the growth occurs in vitro or outside the body, after which they are re-implanted onto the scalp. This technique seems promising, even though elaborate research is required to produce a conclusive outcome.

Is Hair Restoration Free from Side Effects?

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Dushan Stankovic

Hair loss problems can wreak havoc on your self-confidence. But with the help of several hair restoration procedures it is possible to regain your original appearance – these techniques stimulate quick growth that blends with your natural hair.

Are these safe hair restoration methods?

Situations are never same for all – every person undergoing hair transplantation has a certain medical history, the extent of hair loss varies, overall health of hair differs, etc. So while analyzing any particular side effect of hair replacement, it has been found to manifest in diverse forms depending upon those parameters. Here are a few of them:

  • Thinning – a minor effect after surgery, the hair thickens after a few weeks (or months).
  • Pain – advanced methods are generally painless, although painkillers are sometimes suggested by doctors.
  • Scarring – incisions are made on the scalp, which can result in minor to major scarring depending upon the procedure.
  • Itching – it isn’t uncommon to experience irritation or rashes on transplanted areas, but they don’t last long.
  • Swelling – this problem can appear around the eyes or on the forehead, but it usually disappears in a few days.
  • Infections – antibiotics or other medications are administered for warding off infections, but in rare cases, they might occur despite preventive measures.

It vital to choose a hair restoration procedure, such as ARTAS, which doesn’t cause harmful side effects, is effective, and produces permanent results.

With state-of-the-art technology and mapping software, it traces a natural growth pattern for your hair and is 100% safe as well. Give us a call to find out more!   312 806 2203

Hair Enhancement – Is it Beneficial?

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Dushan Stankovic

Over the years, several hair restoration techniques have been invented – some failed, others were marginally effective, while a few became largely successful. However, the biggest challenge for doctors was to develop painless hair replacement procedures that would reduce or even eliminate harmful side effects.

What are the technicalities?

Although the terms hair enhancement and replacement are used interchangeably, they are not the same. Replacement usually refers to wigs or hair systems. It uses synthetic or human hair for covering receding hairlines temporarily and requires extensive maintenance in order to match the original hair growth. In this case, hair strips are attached to the affected area with clips, tape or adhesives, which can harm delicate follicles. But advanced hair enhancement procedures these days are generally permanent and don’t require post-operative upkeep.

The Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair enhancement technique was devised to prevent linear scarring and lessen painful sensations. Each healthy follicle is extracted on a one-by-one basis and transplanted. Follicular Unit Strip Surgery or FUSS is an improved version of FUE where groups of follicles are taken from donor portions on the scalp and implanted on the affected areas. Wounds are closed up with suturing. It is quicker and doesn’t require multiple sessions as compared to traditional FUE procedures. ARTAS, which uses robotics and digital mapping to graft healthy hair follicles onto thinning areas or bald spots, is an ideal example of FUSS.
