Many people who suffer from hair loss and hair thinning may not be aware about the SmartGraft medspa procedure and how it works. An experienced provider will educate the patient about all aspects of SmartGraft to help them make an informed decision.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides SmartGraft procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and surrounding communities.
How is SmartGraft procedure performed?
The treatment provider will use the fully automated SmartGraft device to gently extract micro hair grafts from the targeted areas. The implantation of these grafts is performed in an efficient, quick, and environmentally controlled manner to achieve thick, natural, permanent hair re-growth. This medspa procedure is performed using local anesthesia.
What results can be expected with SmartGraft?
The growth of new hair grafts will occur in sites that are balding or thinning. Fuller, natural looking hair will be restored in transplant sites. The look is completely natural because the patient’s own hair are used.
What makes SmartGraft a superior technique to traditional hair restoration procedures?
SmartGraft is superior because:
- It produces denser, natural looking results in a shorter time.
- It is equally beneficial for both men and women.
- It improves the provider’s ability to perform implantation of hair grafts in very precise areas to properly frame the face.
- Better outcomes can be achieved with the harvesting of grafts from other sites such as the chest, back, and face.
Is a buzz cut necessary to receive SmartGraft procedure?
No. If the hair is sufficiently long, the treatment provider will be able to harvest hair grafts by shaving small areas that will get covered by the longer hair.
How painful is SmartGraft technique?
SmartGraft technique does not involve any significant pain or discomfort. It is not a complex surgery, but an automated in-office procedure. The provider will use a local anesthetic to keep the patient completely comfortable. The patient may read, listen to music or watch a movie during the procedure.
How long and painful will be the recovery?
Healing will occur quickly following SmartGraft, and it will not be painful. The patient can return to work in one to two days. Minimal activity restrictions may be advised during the recovery phase.
When will the results start becoming visible?
Newly transplanted hair will grow in a natural manner in multiple phases. New hairs will be noticed in about three months, and progressive improvements are seen over the next several months. Full growth will be attained in about 12 to 14 months.
Will the scarring be visible?
No. SmartGraft technique involves removal of grafts in individual micro grafts rather than a major strip involving sutures. Therefore, the scarring is reduced and is not visible. Patients can wear the hair style of their choice.
What is the duration of SmartGraft procedure?
The procedure is typically completed in about five to six hours. With SmartGraft, the procedure will take about one-third less time compared to other devices. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other nearby areas.
