Hair restoration techniques are improving to give patients a more natural looking hairline.
Dr. Carlos Puig of Houston is a new member of the Haute MD Network and has more than 30 years experience in the hair transplant field, and he’s one of the elite doctors using some of the most advanced techniques to create a natural transition from the thinner hair on the front of the scalp to the thicker hair moving towards the crown.
The procedure involves moving hair from the back and sides of the head to balding areas elsewhere. The follicles on the side and back are genetically coded to last a lifetime so they are effective as a transplant on the patient.
Dr. Puig uses single hair follicles to create a soft frontal hairline that transitions into thicker hair moving back on the head, just as it occurs naturally. The single follicles can also be used on temporal points, eyelashes, and eyebrows.
Follicular unit hair is a group of three or four hairs used to create the thicker hair density over the scalp. Of the more than 10,000 procedures performed by Dr. Puig, nearly half use this modern technology.
