For many men, a full head of hair provides confidence and a positive self-image, personally and professionally. By the age of 35, two-thirds of men start to experience hair loss. Approximately 50 million men suffer from hair thinning or balding that follows a predictable—and disheartening—progression, which is typically the sign of a hereditary cause. While hair that is lost due to hormone shifts, diet, or stress can grow back on its own if conditions change, male-pattern baldness requires a proactive solution to counter how it shuts down follicles. FUE hair transplant for Los Angeles men seeking the best hair restoration opportunities is a go-to choice at Cassileth Plastic Surgery.
The "FUE" in FUE hair transplant stands for "follicular unit extraction." We use NeoGraft®, a state-of-the-art hair transplant device that gives patients a more natural-looking result with minimal downtime, no linear scarring, and no stitches. This makes it ideal for men from all walks of life (as well as women, with about 30 million enduring some sort of hair thinning or loss). We also offer other hair restoration treatments to further boost the results of a NeoGraft® hair transplant session.
NeoGraft® is the first and only FDA-cleared hair restoration system for handling follicular unit harvesting and implanting. The minimally invasive hair transplant device allows us to precisely harvest individual healthy follicles from areas on the scalp where they are dense and abundant. We then carefully position each follicle in the area where more coverage is needed to create an overall natural-looking pattern.
This is an improvement over the hair transplant method that involved cutting a long, thin strip of scalp away and harvesting follicles for implantation from that tissue. This approach worked as a men's hair transplant strategy, but left a scar in the form of a line across the back of the head.
In addition to being a minimally invasive hair transplant option that creates a natural-looking hairline and causes little to no discomfort or linear scarring, FUE hair transplants with NeoGraft® are incredibly efficient. The technology driving the device means we can transplant larger areas in a single session, reducing the need for subsequent hair transplant procedures and more quickly generating your desired scalp coverage. Extracting follicles individually also better protects them, leading to improved hair restoration results.
With all of these benefits, you can go back to work a couple of days after your hair transplant treatment.
When platelet-rich plasma (PRP), created from a patient's own blood, is injected into the scalp, the growth factors act on stem cells to promote development of new follicles and blood vessels. They also lengthen the time follicles spend in active growth phases. This rejuvenation can significantly increase hair density and scalp health, with many PRP hair restoration patients seeing initial results in as little as four to six weeks. Ideal restoration is typically achieved in six months after three sessions, each spaced 30 to 45 days apart.
Research has found that PRP—made of healing platelets concentrated in the liquid part of blood—is effective for age-related hair loss, as well as alopecia areata, a disease that causes hair loss in young and otherwise healthy people. Applications can complement a hair transplant procedure, or injections can be made on their own as a less invasive alternative to a NeoGraft® hair transplant. PRP paired with microneedling can also stimulate follicles to give natural hair growth a boost.
Nutrafol naturally improves hair growth by targeting the root causes of poor hair health. The medical-grade botanical ingredients in this supplement include stress adaptogens, DHT inhibitors, and super antioxidants. Nutrafol has become a leader in the vitamin industry by offering several different formulations to each patient's hair needs. There are three core formulas available—all formulated by physicians, clinically tested, and entirely drug-free.
The HydraFacial® Keravive treatment stimulates, nourishes, and hydrates the scalp to stimulate fuller and healthier-looking hair. The system has three steps: Cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the scalp and hair follicles. This treatment stimulates vital blood circulation and nourishes the scalp and hair follicles with growth factors and potent skin proteins. The deep cleansing and addition of vital nutrients encourages your own hair follicles to kick-start hair growth and strengthen the hair you already have. This treatment also offers daily scalp and hair follicle nourishment and stimulation for after your treatment with premier take-home products. This can all be done simultaneously with a relaxing facial treatment or performed as a stand-alone option.
