Non-surgical hair transplants are done through the extraction of individual hair follicles from an area of the head, typically the back of the head, where little if any evidence that any hair follicles were ever removed. This is very similar to surgical hair transplants, but the non-surgical method has the obvious advantage of no scar at the back of the head. This is the more ideal surgery for those who want to keep their hair very short.
After the hair follicles are extracted, they are prepared for placement into the target site. After they are placed in the target site, the hair follicles usually take 7-10 days to set in and several months for hair to begin growing consistently.
Am I A Better Candidate for a Surgical or Non-Surgical Transplant?
Candidacy for surgical hair transplant or non-surgical hair treatment is an individualized approach. Many people are good responders to non-surgical options, such as Rogaine, Propecia, PRP injections, etc, but none of these options can approach the degree of success that you should expect from a hair transplant procedure.
