We recommend supplementing your procedure with *minoxidil and finasteride, as well as include boosters of PureCell PRP, (Platelet rich plasma) Peptides, and Red Light Therapy. *Minoxidil and finasteride are popular hair loss medications that are proven to be effective.

FUT is an older method of hair transplantation where a strip of skin is surgically removed from the back of the head to harvest the hair grafts and does leave a visible scar. FUE is the newest technique in which follicular units are extracted individually, directly from the scalp. It is more time intensive, but it is also much less invasive, less painful, and virtually scar free.
