It’s natural to have a degree of anxiety about seeking help for hair loss. That’s why, if you are looking at hair replacement in Houston, you will want to check out the Physicians Hair Restoration Center. Our founder, Dr. Carlos Puig, has been researching and performing hair restoration surgery since 1976.
The Doctor’s Credentials
Dr. Puig is a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Fellow, ACEP, and the Diplomate, and Past President of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. The doctor instituted a practice of “patients before profits”, believing that your visit to our facility should result in your satisfaction and increased esteem.
Dr. Puig served as chair of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Fellowship Training Committee, helping to complete the new Guidelines for International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Fellowship Training Programs. He is currently President Elect of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Board of Governors. These and the many other positions he served are a testimony to his commitment to helping you receiving the most up-to-date, innovative services possible in your care here.
Recently we’ve been pleased to announce the inclusion of Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, in our line-up of care options available to our patients. FUE involves the transfer of follicular units, which can contain more than one hair, from one place in the scalp to another. This is one of the most popular options for hair restoration in Houston.
Since this process uses your own follicles, you can count on these follicles to grow for the rest of your life; a permanent solution to hair loss. Extraction does not require any stitching, and the recovery time is fast, usually only three days.
There are also new techniques which utilize a laser to help increase or stimulate the rate of growth and normalize growth of hair on the scalp. A consultation with our staff can tell you whether this is an option that would be helpful to you.
In the process of researching hair restoration in Houston, our staff have discovered that copper plays a significant role in the support of the process. Copper, through a complicated metabolic process, finds its way into the bloodstream and is used by essentially every cell. It aids in healing, cell division, collagen and accelerated hair growth.
As a result, we offer Graft-Cyte, a post-op kit, which gives you everything you need to heal following a surgical transplant. It is available only through our physician.
Old Vs. New Techniques
Many people have asked us if the new technologies can be used to correct problems from the past. The answer to this is, “Yes, most likely,” but this can only be answered through a private medical consultation. Our Center has addressed this many times with great success.
