About Header Image

Hair loss can be treated both medically and surgically. Surgical techniques include Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation (FUT), performed though the microscopic dissection of a donor strip, and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), where follicular unit grafts are removed directly from the donor area through tiny round incisions. The latter procedure is now performed robotically (R-FUE).

There are two FDA approved medications for hair loss; the oral medication Propecia (finasteride) and topical Rogaine (minoxidil). Other medical therapies include Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

If you are interested in treating your hair loss, the necessary first step is to have a Physician Consultation with a board certified Bernstein Medical physician.

In hair transplant surgery, hair is harvested from the donor area or “permanent zone,” in the back and sides of the scalp, and then implanted into recipient sites made in the balding areas. Hair follicles from the donor area are genetically resistant to the miniaturizing effects of DHT and maintain this resistance after being transplanted. This is why the cosmetic benefits of a hair transplant are long-term.

The modern hair transplant techniques of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Robotic Hair Transplantation (R-FUE, or Robotic FUE) were pioneered by Dr. Bernstein and are now performed by hair transplant surgeons around the world. These procedures, which produce completely natural results, are minimally-invasive and require only local anesthesia. They allow the patient to resume his or her normal activities after a brief recovery period.
