Integrated Techniques are essential to contemporary hair restoration procedures.
The Donor Area
Hair follicles outside of your balding area, typically on the sides and back, are genetically coded to last a lifetime. Most men have an over-abundance of hair in these areas that can be successfully hair transplanted and relocated to the thinning or balding areas. And, because it's your hair, it grows naturally, and will continue to grow for the rest of your life.
Single Hair Grafts
Hair follicles naturally produce 1,2,3,4 and even in some cases 5 hair follicles. It is the single Hair Grafts that are essential to creating a soft frontal hairline with a natural transition from light to dense hair. Although they are difficult and tedious to work with because of their size they are the important element that make PHRC quality hair transplants rival the artistry of Mother Nature. These are also transplanted to restore the natural look in the temporal points, central crown, eyebrows, eyelashes and facial hair.
Follicular Unit Hair
A small naturally occurring grouping that contains three or four hairs. These grafts are transplanted to create density behind the Single Hair Grafts and produce a much thicker, fuller and natural appearance. Dr. Carlos Puig, at PHRC, has performed over 10,000 procedures with over 4,800 of those utilizing today's modern technologies.
The Scalp Reduction
This initial technology of removing crown balding is currently only used as an adjunct in injury reconstruction and updating old hair transplant technology. Dr. Puig has extensive experience with this procedure and can also utilize it on donor challenged patients.
