One of the most advanced and minimally invasive medspa procedures for hair restoration is SmartGraft. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides SmartGraft to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
What is SmartGraft?
SmartGraft is a unique, minimally invasive hair restoration technique developed by physicians and medical scientists. The SmartGraft device allows a treatment provider to perform hair restoration procedures in safer, faster, and more efficient way, while producing permanent, natural looking results.
How is the SmartGraft procedure performed?
The treatment provider at the medspa can apply the SmartGraft device using only local anesthetic. The provider will gently extract micro hair grafts individually from the back of the head, which are then implanted into the affected areas to re-grow thick, natural, healthy hair.
How good are the results with SmartGraft?
Following the procedure, the new hair grafts will grow in the treated areas, creating a fuller, natural looking head of hair. The hair will be real and will appear completely natural.
Why should I choose SmartGraft?
In comparison to many other treatments, SmartGraft delivers better results in lesser time, and is appropriate for both men and women. It enables the provider to implant hair grafts in the precise targeted areas to properly frame your face, which is the most critical component of hair restoration. Hair can be harvested from any area of the body.
Is it necessary to get a buzz cut for SmartGraft?
No. If the hair is reasonably long, the treatment provider will harvest hair grafts using the SmartGraft device by shaving small areas that can be hidden by your longer hair.
Will I experience pain during the procedure?
No. SmartGraft is a simple, in-office procedure, and not an invasive surgery. The provider will use a local anesthetic to numb the affected area. You can relax or listen to music or read a book during the procedure.
How much downtime is involved?
The treated areas will heal quickly and the recovery is not painful. Most patients can return to work in about two days. Very few restrictions on activities are placed during recovery.
When will my hair re-growth begin?
The newly transplanted hair will grow in multiple phases. You will be able to notice new hair in about three months. More noticeable results will show in six months, and full re-growth is attained in about 12 to 14 months.
Will it leave a visible linear scar?
No. SmartGraft technique involves removal in individual micro grafts rather than a large strip requiring sutures. Scarring is minimal and not visible. You can wear a hairstyle of your choice.
Is SmartGraft appropriate for both men and women?
Yes. SmartGraft technique is designed to treat both male and female pattern baldness with equal effectiveness.
What is the duration of SmartGraft procedure?
The entire procedure will be completed in a single sitting of about five to six hours, which is about one-third less than the time with other devices.
Am I a good candidate?
Majority of hair loss patients are candidates for SmartGraft. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for this procedure.
