Our Surgeons Offer Both Types of Hair Restoration Techniques
The Strip Harvest Technique
Follicular unit hair transplantation is the traditional method using strips of scalp holding hair follicles that are removed from the back of your head and placed in the balding areas. The strips, typically around 1 cm wide, and sometimes extending from one side of the head to the other, is used. The number of strips is determined by the amount of hair needing to be transplanted. Once the piece of scalp is removed, a special suturing technique is meticulously used to close the wound. This procedure optimizes the healing while minimizing the scarring. Ten days after surgery, the sutures are removed. After the healing is complete, some hair growth will happen along the scar line. Also, the hair around the scar will help to camouflage it, making it almost undetectable. The patient should have at least one inch of hair over the scar for good concealment. The advantage of the strip harvest method is the lower cost to the patient for the same amount of hair transplanted vs. the follicular unit extraction technique.
Follicular Unit Extraction Technique
Instead of removing strips of hair-bearing scalp, individual hair follicles are removed from the back portion of the head where the hair is usually the thickest. However, this procedure is labor-intensive and requires a good amount of time. The surgeon uses a manual instrument that is 1 mm or smaller and uses punch grafts to harvest the hair follicles.
Our practice at Natural Face™ Clinics is the first exclusive hair restoration practice in the Niagara Falls area to use the NeoGraft® technology. This revolutionary technique is by far, the safest, most effective and a more efficient process to perform the follicular unit extraction. This method is minimally invasive and uses a machine-assisted hair restoration procedure. There are no incisions or sutures used, which allows for a quicker recovery time with no scars.
