What Treatments Are Available for Hair Loss in Ann Arbor, MI?

There are many options for treating hair loss, ranging from medications and non-surgical interventions to more extensive surgical procedures. Dr. Malhotra and our team of hair loss experts will work with you to find the most suitable method to revive your hair.

Non-surgical treatments are typically most effective during the early stages of hair loss, whereas surgical treatments are generally the most practical option for moderate to severe hair loss. Our most popular treatments for hair loss in Ann Arbor include:

FUE Hair Restoration

FUE, also called follicular unit extraction, is one of the most advanced hair restoration treatments available. Dr. Malhotra believes that this option consistently provides the best results for most patients. FUE is less invasive than FUT and has a short recovery time with few activity restrictions.

In FUE, individual hair follicles are removed and transplanted. Since each follicle is removed individually, no large scar is created, but patients do need to shave the entire head before treatment.

FUE hair restoration may be right for you if:

  • You are seeking a long-lasting solution to hair loss
  • You want the most natural-looking results possible
  • You want to minimize scarring
  • You prefer shorter hairstyles
  • You have mild to moderate hair loss

Motorized Hair Restoration

SmartGraft and Mamba are types of FUE hair restoration that uses an automated device to extract hair for grafting. It uses modern technical innovations to revolutionize the hair extraction process and dramatically improve outcomes for patients.

The Mamba device minimizes damage to the scalp and hair follicles, improving the treatment efficacy and minimizing the potential for complications. The device reduces the potential for error and harvests each hair graft under optimal conditions.

Mamba hair restoration may be the right treatment for you if:

  • You are seeking a long-lasting solution to hair loss
  • You want to maximize the number of healthy grafts and reduce follicle damage
  • You want the results of FUE in a shorter, faster procedure
  • You want to minimize complications from hair restoration surgery
  • You want to minimize scarring
  • You have mild to moderate hair loss

Motorized FUE hair restoration offers patients all the benefits of a traditional FUE procedure in a much shorter timeline. While FUE can take one or more days, motorized FUE is usually completed in 4-10 hours. The increased speed of the motorized treatment makes FUE an accessible option for some men that require extensive grafting. Additionally, the different motorized devices minimize human error and protects the delicate hair follicle during extraction and transplantation to improve results.
