Hair Restoration in Houston, TX

We strive to provide the highest standard of care in the field of hair replacement and hair transplantation with the latest advancements and technologies available.
NO SCALPEL, NO BIG SCARS TECHNIQUE.
We use a procedure that is the latest in hair transplant technology. The clinic utilizes a “No Scalpel, No Suture” technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This procedure involves meticulous removal of healthy hairs from the back of the scalp, and then implanted into the balding areas. We put immense emphasis on graft survival, which is achieved by reduced handling of follicles, less time out of the scalp, and careful implantation. Higher Graft survival rates means more dense coverage of the recipient area.
FUE technique is a permanent, minimally invasive, effective procedure which avoids any need for scalpels, with minimal recovery time and minimal downtime.
Our Clinic’s modified form of FUE hair transplant involves the use of the latest technology which individually removes clusters of hair follicles. These follicular units exist in groups of 1-4 hairs. Once removed from the back and side of the scalp, they are carefully and strategically placed in recipient areas with the right angle and direction of curl to give you the most natural looking growth. Our method aims to maximize the available donor area for harvesting. In addition, use of an advanced technology that gives the operator the opportunity to be selective about which Follicular Units to extract for grafting, thus for maximizing the outcome.
Advantages of FUE procedure over a strip harvesting procedure:
- Less invasive
- No linear scar
- Fast and less painful recovery
- Very low follicle transection rate (ie. less damaged, wasted, follicles)
- Maximizes donor hair for harvesting
The most advantageous part of the modern-day Follicular Unit Hair Transplant is the ability to create a naturally looking hairline and overall aesthetically pleasing results.
The main concern for patients however, is whether or not the desired density can be achieved. This should be discussed during the initial consultation so that patients are able to make a fully informed decision prior to their procedure.
Is Hair Restoration Permanent?
Once implanted, Follicular Units will grow naturally and permanently unless they have been traumatized during the hair transplant procedure. This hair can be treated exactly the same way as the rest of your hair and can with stand heat (from an iron), be styled, or dyed.
How much does FUE hair transplant cost?
Getting the best price is important but so is high standards of medical practice! Make sure you are well informed and have all the facts before making your decision. As a potential patient you need to be aware and understand that FUE procedure is not performed in the same way at all hair transplant practices.
At Houston Regenerative Center we charge a straight forward rate for our procedure with no other hidden fees. So, you can focus on the outcome rather than the cost.
Our competitive rate is $2999 for up to 2000 implanted grafts/follicles = 2000-8000 hairs in most cases.
Hair Loss in Men:
Did you know that 95% of hair loss or hair thinning in men is caused by a condition commonly referred to as Male Pattern Hair Loss or MPHL? Doctors refer to this as Andro-Genetic Alopecia. The hormone Dihydrotestosterone or DHT is passed on through genetics and attaches itself to the affected hair follicles and gradually destroys them as the follicles become more sensitive to the DHT hormone. The hair has a shorter life span and becomes thinner eventually disappearing from the scalp altogether.
The areas typically affected by MPHL include the top and vertex of the scalp, the temples, and frontal hairline. Interestingly, the ring of hair around the back and sides of the scalp is resistant to the hormone DHT and therefore remains unaffected.
Hair Loss in Women:
As with hair loss in men, the vast majority of women suffering from hair loss or hair thinning are also affected by genetic causes. However, doing a thorough history and medical examination accompanied by detailed blood testing can help reveal other underlying causes.
These causes may include but are not limited to: Hormonal, contraceptive pills, stress, thyroid disease, iron deficiency, certain medications, and dietary deficiencies.
