At Northeastern Plastic Surgery, we understand the common need for hair restorations procedures. According to the American Hair Loss Association, two-thirds of American men will begin to see some hair loss, or pattern baldness, by age 35. That quickly turns into 85% by the age of 50. Women suffer from this issue as well and actually account for 40% of those suffering from this condition. By the time they reach age 50, almost half of all women experience some degree of hair loss.
Hair loss is primarily caused by aging, heredity, and a change in hormones, causing a loss of confidence in men and women. Luckily, there are ways to treat the issue, often resulting in natural looking results. More people are opting for non-surgical methods of hair restoration treatments, such as NeoGraft, Hair Medica, and NeoLTS (Low Level Light Therapy).

This popular FDA approved method of hair loss treatment utilizes advanced hair transplant technology to restore the patients’ hair and requires microsurgery to transplant active hair follicles. Hair follicles are taken from a donor site on the patient and transplanted in the needed area on the scalp. It is the least invasive hair restoration technique, requires no stitches, and leaves no linear scars. Most patients see results that last for life thanks to NeoGraft.
NeoGraft is a method of FUE (Follicular-Unit Extraction), which is simply a minimally invasive hair restoration method used to harvest and transplant hair. Individual hair follicular units are removed directly from the patient’s donor site and then replanted into the scalp. There are other FUE methods, but NeoGraft shows many benefits over them. A specially trained technician uses a hand-held machine that cores the follicle while controlled pneumatic pressure slides the graft out smoothly.
More men than ever are opting to have cosmetic surgery. In fact, hair restoration procedures are typically in the top five most popular procedures requested by men each year. Men can begin balding as young as their 20’s with receding hairlines and overall hair thinning. By using one of the methods listed above, many men have seen incredible results that will often follow them through life:
Although young women can also be affected by hair loss, it tends to affect post-menopausal women with thinning hair on the top of the head. Women also commonly turn to these cosmetic procedures and treatments to help fill in the balding areas. Check out the incredible results from some of our patients:
After receiving a procedure such as NeoGraft, or without any type of procedure, the clinically proven HairMedica Professional Hair System is a great way to improve the quantity and quality of your hair. All of their products are safe and natural, allowing for better hair anchoring, extensive new hair growth, and no future hair loss.
This is another FDA approved treatment method that helps improve thinning hair. It uses phototherapy, or light therapy, to dramatically affect the visible signs of aging. Aside from the many skin benefits, NeoLTS helps patients achieve a fuller, thicker, and stronger head of hair. The procedure is non-invasive and requires little to no down-time.
