What are your hairline restoration options?
When it comes to restoring your own living and growing hairline, unfortunately, if you are balding in these areas, options are limited. Because of the severe depletion of density that has caused your hairline to appear receded, non-invasive FDA-approved medical treatments like topicals (minoxidil/Rogaine/Formula82M, etc.) and treatments such as laser therapy are unlikely to have a major restorative impact. In addition, oral prescription FDA-approved hair regrowth medication like Propecia/finasteride and other anti-DHT treatments might help protect the hairline from receding further, but a true restoration is also unlikely.
For permanent restoration of a living and growing hairline, hair transplantation is the most successful option. Today, hair transplants performed with NeoGraft FUE approach use a microsurgical technique to move permanent hair follicles from the back of the scalp and implant them into the thinning, balding or receding areas.
Highly-trained NeoGraft FUE hair transplant surgeons and their teams are able to harvest literally thousands of hair follicles and follicular-units individually, leaving no telltale linear scar in the ‘donor area’ located in the back of the scalp. NeoGraft FUE is a new, minimally-invasive approach to hair follicle harvesting, eliminating the old-style “strip harvest” method. Recovery is faster, more comfortable and with a shorter duration of activity restriction… you can literally be back in the gym in three days because there are no staples or sutures/stitches to injure.
A meticulous, artistic approach is critical in the hairline or ‘recipient area’ in order to assure that each follicle’s angle, orientation and position will deliver a 100% natural and undetectable result when grown in. Careful planning and execution of the hairline design is important as well as the advanced surgical instruments, lighting and magnification and highly trained staff to help complete the procedure.
It is expected that your surgeon will take quite a bit of pride in showing you artistic and undetectable hairline design work he has accomplished for his hair transplant patients.
