Many individuals suffer from hair loss or alopecia. The emotional impact of hair loss can be stressful and subsequently, living with hair loss can be challenging in many ways. Having hair fullness contributes to an individual’s personal attractiveness and self expression. Hair loss can change the appearance of the face by shifting the balance of the face to the forehead, resulting in an aged appearance. Affecting both men and women, attitudes towards thinning hair is generally negative, while at the same time alopecia is also not truly recognized as an important medical problem by most in the medical field. In fact, approximately 50 million men and about 30 million women in the US alone suffer from male/female pattern baldness or thinning hair and are looking for a hair loss solution to help gain their confidence back. Therefore, patients can feel ignored when it comes to the this real source of distress.
At One Health Medical & Surgical Center, in Orange County, Dr. Vu Dinh and Dr. Quynh Vu along with their compassionate medical staff offer support, guidance, and resources to address each individual’s hair loss concerns. We use the most advanced method in hair transplant technology with NeoGraft. This minimally invasive technology allows us to provide hair restoration to improve the quality of life for our patients. Our patients no longer have to suffer an invasive procedure to regain hair thickness or a shapely hairline, and using NeoGraft can provide significant hair replacement without any of the disadvantages of previous methods.
So, what is the Neograft? The NeoGraft is the first FDA cleared follicular unit harvesting and implantation system for men and women. The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method gently removes the individual follicles from the back of the head or the “donor area” in their naturally occurring groupings of about 1-4 hairs. The follicles are then immediately artistically implanted in the areas of the scalp where balding has occurred to complement the facial structure and current hairline, resulting in a discrete, natural-looking hair transplant. The advantages of the Neograft are there are no staples or stitches involved and there is no incision so there are no scalpels used. There is minimal discomfort and the recovery time is quick. Patients can resume their normal activity after only a few days. Most of all, there is no linear scar, therefore the hairline is natural looking.
We would like to support and guide our patients in their individual hair loss concerns. With the Neograft system, we have products designed by Neograft specifically to help prevent hair loss. Further, for a definitive solution, the NeoGraft procedure will be able to replenish and replace areas of hair loss with patient’s own hair.
NeoLTS LED light therapy is FDA approved for non-invasive hair regrowth treatment. It has also been shown to have a dramatic effect on controlling the visible signs of aging including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and inflammatory acne. The mechanism in which it works involves the absorption of light by the receptors on the surface of the cells in the body. The light therapy accelerates the cells natural process of growth and increases cellular activity making them more efficient. When used with hair restoration, hair follicles are stimulated to make new follicles and blood flow improves. On skin cells, fine lines and wrinkles improve as result evening out skin tone and treating acne prone skin. This system is is completely painless with no downtime. NeoLTS can be used on all skin types and is effective for both men and women.
