Through a sophisticated micro-grafting technique, follicles from those unaffected areas are transferred to the thinning or balding regions. This begins when Dr Pinette and his team remove a ‘donor’ strip from the patient’s head. This strip is dissected carefully into individual and multiple hair grafts, and then the recipient area is prepared with tiny incisions into which the donor hair grafts are inserted.
This relatively new approach produces results far more subtle than earlier transplants, and it has encouraged the growing popularity of hair transplant surgery.
Most clients require only one session, but this depends on the degree of baldness or thinning. In the first session, the micro-grafts are distributed through the entire bald area. Each session takes an average of eight hours.
Dr Pinette uses state-of-the-art micro-grafting techniques that are proven safe and effective. Micro-graft implants contain one-to-three hairs per graft. As a result, the scar tissue in the healing area is nearly non-existent and healing time is between five to seven days. The newly transplanted hair is genetically programmed to keep growing, making this an investment that will literally last a lifetime.
Dr Pinette believes in delivering the best advances to you to create the best possible outcome. That includes adding low level light therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections to your transplant treatment and post-care. These additional treatments can vastly improve your healing time, reduce scar tissue, and restore your hair more quickly.
