Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)

FUE is a state-of-the-art hair transplantation technique that involves the individual extraction of hair follicles from a donor area, typically at the back of the head where hair is more resistant to balding. These follicles are then meticulously transplanted to the thinning areas. This method offers a minimally invasive solution with a quick recovery time, leaving no linear scars, and allowing for the precise placement of hair to create a natural-looking hairline and fuller appearance.

Follicular Unit Grafting (FUT)

FUT, also known as the strip method, involves removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from the donor area. Individual hair follicles are then separated from the strip and transplanted to the scalp’s thinning sections. While this method is more invasive than FUE, it allows for the transplantation of a large number of follicles in one session, making it an efficient option for extensive hair loss.

ARTAS® Robotic Assisted FUE

The ARTAS® system represents the pinnacle of precision and technology in hair restoration. With the assistance of a robotic arm, Dr. Charles can harvest healthy hair follicles with unparalleled accuracy. The system reduces the potential for human error and ensures consistent results, providing a comfortable and minimally invasive experience for patients.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

For those seeking a non-surgical treatment, SMP offers a cosmetic camouflage for thinning hair. By tattooing thousands of tiny, hair-like impressions onto the scalp, SMP creates the illusion of a fuller head of hair. This technique is particularly effective for individuals with extensive hair loss or those who prefer not to undergo hair transplant surgery.

LaserCap® Therapy

As part of Charles Medical Group’s non-surgical hair loss interventions, the LaserCap® therapy provides a convenient and effective treatment option that promotes hair growth. This FDA-cleared device uses low-level laser light to stimulate hair follicles, increasing blood flow and nutrient delivery to improve hair density.
