Hair Replacement
Hair replacement refers to any method of replacing lost or thinning hair. This could be through the use of programs, systems, vitamins, or pharmaceutical drugs in order to reverse the pattern of baldness occurring. These methods of hair restoration are often the preferred first line of defense in reversing hair loss and thinning. This is because these are most often non-surgical approaches. Experimenting with drugs, lifestyle changes and vitamin regiments is recommended before you jump into a surgery.

Hair Transplant
This is a method that can be employed if the previously mentioned methods do not work for you. More commonly this procedure is called FUT. The technology used can either be the FUSS or the FUE. FUSS is more of an older technology and the FUE is the most recent advancement in the field of hair restoration where it does not leave a linear scar, is the least invasive and recovery is almost over night. The FUE takes the patient’s own natural groupings of hairs one by one using a tiny punch of 1mm or less. Hair restoration technology has improved tremendously in the last 5 years, and results are looking better and more natural than ever before. Finding an expert who knows exactly what they are doing is the key if you choose to go with this route.
