Hairline Refresh! Are You A Candidate?
With almost 20 years experience treating hair loss and working with the latest technologies in hair restoration surgery Dr. Sara Wasserbauer routinely performs man rare and technically challenging procedures. One of the most common requests is to simply reinforce a patients hairline, thus adding density to the frame of the face while maintaining naturalness. This subtle enhancement can dramatically improve a persons youthful and vibrant appearance. So is a hairline refresh right for you?
Generally speaking, a hairline refresh is appropriate for patients who have already started on the optimal medical treatment and are committed to it. Concentrating on the hairline allows a surgeon like Dr. Wasserbauer to use the tiniest sites and the highest density possible, because only the first 1-2cm are the focus. Believe it or not, a previous hair transplant is actually a good indication for a hairline refresh, especially since the numbers of grafts needed are between 1000-1500 grafts and is a reasonable number even for those with several previous surgeries of any type.
Either the linear OR the FUE method are options, and the decision for which to use is typically individual to the patient. If you are holding off on having a full surgery, but still want an improvement, give our office a call and we can help you decide whether a hairline refresh might be right for you.
