Are Hair Restoration Results Permanent?

If you’re worried about hair loss, a receding hairline, or thinning hair, you’ve probably already started to research possible solutions. It can be overwhelming to discover how any products promise to cure this common concern, and even harder to find out whether they actually work or not. With millions of men and women experiencing some form of hair loss as early as the age of 21 across the country, it’s no surprise that the market is flooded with temporary fixes. But what if you want something more long-term? So far, there’s no way around having a genetic predisposition for hair loss, but there are ways to restore the hair that’s been lost.

Hair Restoration: What Works And What Doesn’t

You may have already tried a number of ways to stop your hair loss, in which case you know that while they can slow the process, they can’t bring back the full head of hair you once had. Dietary changes, topical treatments, supplements, and prescription medications can all work a temporary improvement in the look of your hair, but they can’t regrow hair from follicles that have gone dormant. The key difficulty with restoring lost hair is that it’s not just that the hair is falling out. Hair loss means that the follicle, which generates hair growth and anchors the root of the hair to the scalp, is no longer viable. The good news is, depending on the stage of hair loss, a hair restoration procedure can provide long-term solutions to patients seeking more advanced medical treatments.

The Facts About Hair Restoration Procedures

Many people have concerns about what’s involved in a surgical hair restoration procedure, but these days the technology has come so far that you can restore your hairline with fast recovery times and excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results. Here’s what to expect:

Safe & effective treatment — hair restoration procedures are performed by highly qualified physicians in a clinical setting with advanced medical equipment. 

Natural-looking results — Implantation of transplanted follicles are planned ahead of the procedure to ensure a natural-looking result, and the procedure leaves no linear scarring.

Minimal downtime — since the procedure is minimally invasive, the recovery time is quick, with most people returning to their normal activities within two weeks.

High patient satisfaction - a 94% patient satisfaction rating says it all, but you can see for yourself at our before-and-after photo gallery.

Long-lasting results — While hair loss may not necessarily stop after transplantation, many patients are satisfied with the result after one procedure and results can last up to a lifetime. Please consult your hair restoration physician for specific treatment plans.

Hair Restoration Using Follicular Unit Extraction

Modern advancements in hair restoration deliver natural-looking results that last, and are far less invasive than traditional Strip techniques, making hair restoration one of the most popular and sought-after aesthetic treatments today. In many cases, the most effective treatment is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUE is a process by which the hair follicles are transplanted individually. This technique is precise and allows for a more natural-looking result with no linear scarring. Venus Concept has two devices that utilize FUE: NeoGraft® and ARTAS®.

During a NeoGraft® session, the treatment provider extracts individual hair follicles from the back or sides of the head using a specialized device and then implants them in the area where more hair growth is desired. The newly implanted hair follicles continue the natural hair growth cycle and results improve each week, with full realization at 9-12 months post-procedure. Unlike previous Strip methods, which involved surgically removing a strip from the back of the patient’s scalp, thisprocedure is minimally invasive for a faster recovery process and no linear scarring.

ARTAS® uses a similar process, except in this case using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to harvest hair follicles from the ideal donor site and to place each follicle in the recipient area. The device’s robotic precision and speed protect your existing hair and maintain a natural appearance for the newly implanted hair. Both devices are designed to restore your hair discreetly and successfully, with long-lasting results that look great.
