Hair loss can be a frightening and emotional journey for patients of all ages and genders. Dr. Le works diligently to guide patients through minimizing hair loss, restoring hair to thinning areas, and stimulating new hair growth. Dr. Le is a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss and in FUE hair restoration in Houston. As a hair transplant patient himself, Dr. Le developed all hair restoration protocols we use at our Houston office.
At Smart Graft Houston we specialize in the latest hair restoration techniques.In the past, some patients would stay away from traditional hair transplants due to scarring. SmartGraft is a modern follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair restoration technology used at our Houston office that eliminates the need for invasive surgery and is scalpel-free.
With SmartGraft, Dr. Le and his team use a handheld device to carefully harvest hair follicles from the back of the scalp and keep them safe until they can be transplanted into the desired area.START YOUR JOURNEY TODAY
Many of our Houston patients ask our team about the difference between SmartGraft and NeoGraft, as they both are FUE hair restoration techniques. In general, we find that SmartGraft has the following advantages over NeoGraft.
Dr. Le and his team created a surgery day process that is as easy as possible for their patients.On the day of surgery, the patient will arrive at the office and change into a surgical gown. We will take your “before” photos.
Dr. Le will outline a new hairline (if that is the desired result) and the patient will approve it before the procedure begins. A local anesthetic will be administered to the transplant area, and pain-relievers will be offered as required.
After this, the patient remains awake for the duration of the procedure (approximately 5-6 hours) while a technician, supervised by Dr. Le, will carefully extract the follicles and transplant them to the target area.
To undergo a successful SmartGraft procedure, the ideal candidate will have the following characteristics:
Dr. Le may recommend PRP injections to increase the growth of new hair in certain areas of the scalp.Platelet Rich Plasma involves extracting plasma from the patient’s blood to inject into the desired areas.
SmartGraft is beneficial for immediate results, while PRP can be useful for maintaining the results afterward. The SmartGraft procedure moves over healthy follicles while the PRP treatment encourages regular growth due to the plasma’s healing properties.GET YOUR NEW LOOK NOW
