THE FUTURE OF HAIR RESTORATION TECHNOLOGY

In recent years, hair transplant treatments have undergone a significant transformation. If you’re considering hair restoration therapy, chances are you’re looking for a natural-looking hairline with suitable density. Thanks to advancements in technology, multiple new techniques yield incredibly realistic outcomes.

Opting to undergo hair restoration is an important and personal decision, and finding a reputable clinic to undertake your hair transplant procedure can be challenging. With MAXIM Hair Restoration, which specializes in various hair transplant treatments and hair-related services, you can rest assured you’re in good hands. Hair Transplant Surgeons and clinicians use both surgical and nonsurgical hair restoration techniques, such as PRP, SMP, FUT, or FUE hair transplants, and frequently combine several approaches to get the best possible outcomes.  Let’s go through each of these advanced hair transplant techniques in further detail.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

During this hair restoration surgery, one hair graft, or Follicular Unit, is taken and implanted at a time. WAW FUE, Ellis FUE, the Cole FUE System, the SAFE FUE System, and the ATERA are examples of modern technology used in the FUE technique. At MAXIM’s clinic, a hair transplant expert performs FUE hair surgery [1] under a local anesthetic. Hair transplant technicians aid the specialist. You can listen to music during your hair restoration operation, talk to the crew, or talk on your mobile phone. You can even take a siesta. 

Follicular unit extraction or excision (FUE) is one of the most advanced hair transplant techniques and has several benefits. It’s less invasive than other kinds of hair transplants and there are no noticeable linear scars or sutures, so it delivers a natural appearance and allows a hair transplant doctor or clinician to transplant up to 4,000 grafts at once. After the procedure is finished, you can return to work quickly—there isn’t much follow-up treatment.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

FUT is a hair restoration [2] technique that allows MAXIM hair transplant doctors to undertake long hair transplants. It is also known as The Strip hair transplant method. FUT entails removing a strip of hair and tissue (skin) from the rear side of your head, commonly known as the donor site. Individual hair transplants are detached from this strip of hair and implanted into balding and thinning areas of the head. 

Each graft, also known as micrografts, comprises one to three hair follicles, and the operation is commonly known as micro-follicular hair transplantation.  At one time, each graft comprised five to 10 hair follicles and each graft was called a plug. They resembled doll hair and were easily identifiable as transplanted hair to the naked eye. With micrografting, this is no longer an issue.

The FUT method is well-known, well-proven, and regarded as an established performer, especially for those who are seeking longer sessions of up to 4,000 grafts at once and a thicker, fuller outcome. This surgical hair restoration is a realistic, durable, and cost-effective option.

3D Scalp Micropigmentation

3D Scalp Micropigmentation or the SMP process is a non-surgical approach that injects pigment into the scalp using microneedles and a stroke technique to mimic small hair follicles and the appearance of natural hair. There is no bleeding since a topical anesthetic is administered.

Hybrid Procedure

Under this technique, your hair transplant doctor will create a personalized treatment plan for you. For the desired outcome, hybrid hair replacement treatments are made in conjunction with or within a short time span of each other. This may require more sessions than other types of treatment. The best hair loss therapy is a mix of surgical hair transplants and nonsurgical therapies. To help you feel comfortable during the process, topical and local anesthetics will most likely be used throughout the surgeries.

The results of a hybrid procedure are often better because of the mix of hair restoration treatments they use. In this type of treatment, it’s possible to enhance your hair’s density and texture. You’ll also be treated by a team of hair transplant physicians and hair restoration specialists, as well as other medical technicians. Compared to one-size-fits-all treatments, the hybrid technique represents a distinct approach at MAXIM.

Facial Hair Transplant

Depending on the patient’s needs, area to be covered, skin texture, donor site, and medical history, facial hair transplant surgeons use different procedures for eyebrow, face, mustache, and beard hair transplants. MAXIM’s hair transplant specialist may recommend FUE or FUT hair transplants or nonsurgical options such as SMP or micro-pigmentation. They may also recommend a mix of surgical and non-surgical hair restoration procedures. This will be assessed by our team of experts during your hair restoration consultation appointment. 

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)

CIT is a minimally invasive process that increases collagen synthesis in the scalp, resulting in rejuvenated hair follicles and improved hair health. A doctor performs this procedure using a topical anesthetic, which can be paired with a hair transplant. There is minimum preparation for this procedure, and it’s followed by applying a healing serum.

PDO-MAX

PDO-MAX is a hybrid nonsurgical scalp rejuvenation technology developed by MAXIM that combines three separate procedures: PRP, Microneedling (CIT), and PDO threading. In this procedure, growth factors are isolated in high concentrations. Then blood is taken and processed via an elaborate, cutting-edge centrifuge that employs dual-spin technology. Afterward, the scalp is numbed with a ring block before the regenerating serum is injected across it. Threads are then inserted into the location undergoing treatment. The threads are triggered and then removed. Afterward, the residual regenerating serum is administered topically. 

Other emerging and future include A.I. diagnostics and robotic hair restoration although its limited by session size (no. of grafts). Futuristic technologies follicular multiplication, cloning, autologous therapy and others although many of these are still in their research stage. 

The current and future prospects for hair transplant treatments are possibly brighter than ever.
