Robotic Follicular Unit Extraction is a hair transplant procedure in which the ARTAS Robotic System is used to harvest the individual follicular unit grafts and create recipient sites with unparalleled precision and consistency. The procedure leaves no linear scarring and has minimal post-op limitations. Read More >>
Follicular Unit Transplantation is a procedure where the surgeon removes a strip of hair about 1 cm wide from the back of the scalp. The strip is then dissected into individual follicles which are placed into the balding area. Read More >>
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) is a medical-grade scalp tattoo that serves as a permanent cosmetic camouflage. SMP mimics the appearance of a closely shaved head and can be used on scars or balding areas. SMP offers an alternative for patients who are not candidates for hair transplant surgery and is particularly helpful in women with thinning hair to make their hair appear more full. Read More >>
Platelet Rich Plasma is a three-step medical treatment in which a patient’s blood is drawn, spun to extract growth factors, and then injected back into the balding areas. Read More >>
