When you hear about hair restoration, most envision people with receding hairlines or thinning hair on top of their head. While that is the most common reason individuals of all genders seek a hair transplant procedure, it is not the only reason. Facial hair transplant procedures have become more popular in recent years with the cutting-edge techniques we use today at Pasadena Hair Transplant. We offer both beard and eyebrow facial hair transplant surgery at our facility in Pasadena, CA.
NeoGraft for New Eyebrows
NeoGraft uses pneumatic pressure to extract hair follicles from a donor area on the scalp to transplant to the eyebrow area. The most common donor area is the back of the scalp where most people have the thickest hair. Individuals seeking eyebrow transplants come to us for a variety of reasons. Some have lost eyebrow hair due to scarring, burns, chemotherapy or other incidents and want to restore their complete eyebrows. Others may have full eyebrows but want thicker or fuller eyebrows than genetics gave them.
Eyebrow hair transplants require less time and hair grafts than scalp or beard procedures. The procedure generally takes about two to four hours, but it can be less or more, depending on the number of hair follicles that need to be harvested and transplanted.
FUE for Beard Transplants
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is used with the NeoGraft system to create beautiful beards for our patients. Like eyebrows, there are many reasons our patients come to us for beard transplants. Injuries, disease and scars may have damaged facial hair follicles, or patients genetically are unable to grow the beard they desire. The same technique is used to harvest hair grafts from the scalp to transplant in the beard area.
Beard transplant procedures usually take anywhere from two to five hours, depending on the number of grafts needed. With the NeoGraft® FUE system, there is no visible scarring on the face or scalp after the skin heals from the procedure.
If you have a patchy or thin beard, or your eyebrows have all but disappeared, come see us at Pasadena Hair Transplant. We offer advanced options in facial hair transplant surgery at our state-of-the-art facility in Pasadena, CA.
