Facial Hair Restoration

There is no doubt that facial hair plays an important role in an attractive masculine appearance. In some cultures, facial hair is a sign of masculinity, and studies have shown that many women are more attracted to men with heavy facial stubble. If you are looking to achieve some of the best results from facial hair restoration San Francisco can lay claim to, see Dr. Beck and ask him about how the Neograft system can get you the stubble you've always wanted.

Sparse or lacking facial hair can affect a man’s self-esteem and confidence in seeking relationships. Fortunately, Dr. Joel Beck at Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery offers sophisticated hair restoration techniques to restore hair to areas of the face where it is thin or missing with minimal scarring and dramatic, natural-looking results.

Why Some Men Choose Facial Hair Restoration

Bald patches in beards are a common occurrence, appearing in the cheeks, under the chin, on the sides of the neck, and in the moustache region. Loss of facial hair has a number of causes, including genetics, injury, burns, and a condition known as alopecia barbae, in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin.

Many men are choosing advanced facial hair restoration techniques as a solution when hair on the face is sparse, patchy, or lacking altogether. Thicker facial hair that looks natural and grows and behaves the same as native facial hair can contribute to a masculine appearance, increase confidence, and raise self-esteem. Better still, with advanced NeoGraft facial hair transplant technology, results can be achieved, with little discomfort or downtime, minimal scarring, and no incisions, staples, or sutures.

NeoGraft FUE Facial Hair Restoration

There are two basic techniques for transplanting hair to the face: the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) technique, also known as the “strip method;” and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique, a more sophisticated hair restoration method. At Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, we offer NeoGraft FUE treatment, which is easily the most advanced hair transplant technique available.

NeoGraft is the only follicular unit harvesting and implantation system that has been approved by the FDA. With this new technology, treating physicians can shorten procedures or double the number of grafts transplanted per session, saving patients time and money.

How Does NeoGraft FUE Facial Hair Restoration Work?

NeoGraft Facial Hair Transplantation is a revolutionary new hair loss solution and a vast improvement over strip methods of the past. The old method involved removing hair-bearing strips from the back and sides of the scalp and transferring them to the treatment areas, leaving linear scars on the scalp in the process.

NeoGraft FUE technology uses an automated system to gently remove hair individual hair follicles from the back and sides of the scalp in naturally occurring grouping of 1 to 4 hairs and transfer them to the face. The procedure is performed on an out-patient basis with local anesthetic, and there is very little downtime, so you can get back to your normal activities quickly.

The new hair on your face typically grows like normal facial hair and can be groomed, shaped, and grown to any length, the same as facial hair from native hair follicles. Given time, it may be difficult to tell the transplanted hair apart from the original hair.
