About Bio Enhanced Hair Transplant

Bio enhance hair transplant surgery is a process that uses a patient's own regenerative cells to improve a follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure. The overall results of the hair transplant procedure are greatly enhanced thanks to this approach.

The Bio Enhanced Difference

When hair follicles are harvested in a traditional hair transplant surgery, they are usually kept on a saline-based solution to ensure they are viable for the eventual transplant procedure. Bio enhance hair transplants use a plasma-rich solution rather than a saline-based one. This plasma-rich solution includes proteins from a patient's blood, allowing the harvested hair follicles to receive nutrients while they are stored.

Once the follicular units have been placed, the hair restoration specialist will then inject platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the treated area. This helps promote tissue healing as well as new cellular growth, an especially important consideration for surgical procedures.

Bio Enhanced Hair Transplant Benefits

This use of a patient's own plasma in various points of the process have the following important benefits:

  • Increases the number of hair follicles to be used during the transplant procedure
  • Reduced healing and recovery times
  • Hair is denser and grows in faster
  • Non-transplanted hair grows better
  • Virtually undetectable scarring in the donor site

General Candidacy for Bio Enhanced Hair Transplant

Good candidates for bio enhanced FUE or FUT are people who have experienced serious hair loss and would like to have a full head of hair again. They should be in relatively good health, and they should be on the older side to ensure they have lost a fair amount of hair before undergoing a restoration procedure.

Understanding the Risks and Benefits

Heading into a bio enhanced hair transplant, patients should discuss all of the potential risks and benefits with their hair restoration specialist. This will help patients understand the nature of the treatment process and what to expect as they recover.

Having Realistic Expectations About the Treatment Process

As with all surgeries, knowing what to expect helps patients develop realistic expectations about healing, recovery, and results. During the consultation process, we will be more than happy to go over these matters in much greater detail.
