Hair Restoration Injections in New York

Male pattern baldness is an inherited trait affecting approximately 90% of all men, to some degree. For two out of three men, this type of hair loss is significant enough to cause concern. Up to half of all women may also experience similar hair loss.

Hair transplantation has been available for over 40 years. Unfortunately for many people, hair transplantation conjures up images of the old technique with unnatural-looking hairlines and “corn row” appearance. The new technique of micro-grafting has revolutionized the field of hair transplantation, consistently achieving natural-appearing results. We believe that a good hair transplant is one that is unrecognized.

A session involves taking a thin strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the head, where hair growth is at its fullest. This tissue is transplanted in its own natural-growing follicular unit. These follicular grafts contain one to four hairs and are used as micro-grafts, with the hair transplanted in its own natural grouping. This revolutionary technique allows the hair to be placed more evenly and densely, which is critical in achieving a more natural appearance and a fuller head of hair. These mini-grafts also heal more quickly, resulting in better hair growth. Because of their smaller size, mini- and micro-grafts allow uniform hair placement without clumping or tufting of hair, resulting in a natural appearance and hairline.

Hair restoration surgery is a safe, pain-free, minor surgical procedure performed in our onsite operating room under local anesthesia. Two to three sessions, spaced about six months apart, may be required to produce the most natural-looking, dense hair re-growth. Following a hair transplant session, patients return to normal hair styling and showering within one week.

Dr. Rokhsar is fellowship-trained in hair restoration surgery and is a fellow of the American Academy of Hair Restoration Surgery. He specializes in artistically recreating your original hair pattern. He also has special expertise in correcting the “corn row” appearance of previous procedures.

Hair Restoration FAQ

If my hair is just starting to thin, when should I start hair restoration treatments?

According to the American Hair Loss Association, it is important to wait until the patient is at least 25 years old before undergoing any hair restoration procedures.

What do I need to take into consideration prior to undergoing any hair restoration procedures?

Every patient requires different needs and treatments. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar can provide advice to properly treat and restore hair most effectively. Each patient has a different hair density and scalp laxity. Hair density is based on the number of hair follicles per square centimeter of scalp. Scalp laxity is based on the flexibility and looseness of the scalp.

How many treatments do I need?

The amount of hair grafts that can be transplanted depends on each factor. For example, more grafts of hair can be transplanted if both the density and scalp laxity are high.

What are all of the hair restoration options available today?

According to the American Hair Loss Association, two clinically proven hair loss treatments are finasteroid, an orally ingested medication which has proven to significantly reduce the progression of hair loss, and minoxidill, a proven male pattern treatment for those that do not respond to finasteroid. However surgical hair restoration of follicle grafts are proven to be the most effective for those with significant hair loss. The hair is transplanted by harvesting hair from the back of the scalp, which is then transplanted into the areas of baldness.
