A local anesthetic is used to numb the scalp, minimizing any discomfort during the hair transplant procedure. At Natural Restorations, our clinical team implants single and multiple groups of hair follicles, alternating in density and volume to create a natural look.
Though performing Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) requires time and is demanding upon the physician and staff, we feel that it is the best method that we can offer due to its short and long-term benefits which include little post-op discomfort, less missed time from work, and a quick return to full activities. FUE is also considered a safer route in someone with a tight scalp.
The ARTAS is the most precise, accurate, and repeatable method of doing an FUE procedure – both in harvesting without causing damage to your limited and irreplaceable donor grafts, and its ability to make recipient sites into your thinning areas without damaging your existing hair follicles. Three dimensional mapping is used to optimize the placement of the follicles to follow the natural hair growth pattern.
For several days the treatment areas will appear to have ‘red dots’ on the scalp that are visually noticeable. Many men schedule the procedure to coincide with vacation time, or take a long weekend to allow for sufficient healing time if personal discretion is a concern.
