SmartGraft: The Smart Approach to Hair Transplantation

If you’ve been losing your hair, you may have looked into various hair replacement options, from wigs to transplant procedures, only to remain unconvinced that you’ve found your solution. Fortunately, you’re no longer limited to the traditional invasive techniques commonly used to move hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another. Here at Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics, we’re proud to offer the SmartGraft methods of hair transplantation. This advanced, minimally-invasive technique can help you enjoy long-term results with less discomfort and quicker recovery times.

Hair transplantation corrects this problem by relocating active follicles to replace the inactive ones. The traditional method of hair transplantation, follicular unit transplantation (FUT), involves removing entire strips of skin from the scalp (in an area that will be covered by hair from neighboring scalp tissue). The skin is divided up into many tiny units of “plugs,” which are then punched into the bald areas of the scalp so that new hair can grow normally in these areas. Unfortunately, this procedure leaves large scars, can cause significant postoperative discomfort, and may produce an unnatural-looking final result.
