The Latest And Greatest in Hair Loss Treatments
Everyone loses hair. On average, people lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. But when you start losing larger quantities of hair in certain areas, notice excessive shedding, or if your hairline is receding, it is time to take a closer look.
Hair loss is a struggle affecting many, many people. The majority of men lose their hair with age and experience “male pattern baldness,” a genetic trait that’s hard to escape. Although it may seem like a more common problem for men, women also struggle with hair loss or thinning hair. Women tend to lose their hair for different reasons than men, however. The most common triggers are a hormone imbalance, stress, weight loss, certain medical conditions, the use of some medications, or vitamin deficiencies.

What are my treatment options?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
A group of one to four healthy hairs growing from producing follicles is considered a follicular unit. When performing an FUE, these follicular units are harvested from the scalp. Once extracted, they can be placed in the various areas of the scalp where hair loss is present, enabling new hair growth in the area. This more modern approach to hair transplantation allows patients to keep their hair shorter without noticing any scarring that would have been an issue with older techniques such as “hair plugs.”
Follicular hair transplantation provides a number of benefits:
- Small incisions, minimal scarring
- Recovery time is shorter; extraction sites heal more quickly
- Activities can be resumed sooner than with traditional techniques that required a larger segment of tissue to be removed
- Hair can be worn short without fear of any visible scarring
The ARTAS system is a combination of robotics and artificial intelligence. When it comes to hair transplantation, ARTAS uses specially developed algorithms to map follicle placement, which is then managed by physician-assisted robotics. This groundbreaking system produces a superior result that appears exceptionally natural – no worries about having row upon row of obvious transplants!
Although traditional transplant methods are still an option for some patients, those who are good candidates for ARTAS can experience a less invasive method of hair restoration while avoiding any incisions, stitches or scarring. ARTAS allows for complete precision enabling the most natural-looking results. The robotic technology removes only the targeted follicles, making sure not to damage others surrounding the area. Other benefits include:
- Natural looking hair restoration
- Hair restoration delivered in less time with more precision
- A much easier procedure
- Minimally invasive, quick recovery
NeoGraft is a hair transplant device that safely automates the FUE hair restoration method. It uses controlled pneumatic pressure to safely remove the graft from the scalp. NeoGraft offers a technique with no pulling or twisting, keeping the hair follicle healthy and more viable. Its ergonomic system allows the surgeon to work more efficiently and with greater accuracy when harvesting hair follicles.
This minimally invasive hair transplantation procedure enhances the accuracy and speed of the hair follicle harvesting. A larger area of the scalp can be treated in a single session, reducing the need for additional procedures. Other benefits include:
- Minimal to no pain
- No stitches or no linear scarring
- Natural-looking results
- Fewer limitations with activities post treatment
Which treatment option is best?
When it comes to treating hair loss, there is no “one-size-fits-all.” The first step to slow down the process of hair loss is to diagnose why it is happening. It is important to consult with a hair restoration specialist to understand which treatment path will produce the best results – for you. The earlier you address your hair loss, the better the outcome. The good news is that with a modern approach to hair restoration, there are more options now than ever before to restore a thicker, healthier head of hair.
