This is often true if anesthetic techniques are inadequate, but the solution is simple.  Find a doctor who has better techniques.  Dr. Elliott has lectured internationally on painless anesthesia in hair restoration surgery.  He has taught many, many other doctors his techniques.  Most importantly, he has had 2 hair transplants and knows how it feels to be a patient.

With poor artistic or surgical techniques, this can be true.  Modern hair transplant techniques in the hands of an expert like Dr. Elliott produce results that are undetectable to others, even the person cutting your hair.  Dr. Elliott has developed and learned all the skills and techniques needed to correct unnatural results, whether from work done recently or in the past.

Women are also candidates, but their hair loss differs from men’s.  If a woman is concerned about hair loss, she should see a hair restoration surgeon like Dr. Elliott, who knows the full range of treatment options.  In his experience, women are just as happy with hair transplant results as men.

Medical treatment works so well that losing your hair is a choice.  You can stop it.  Dr. Elliott has treated thousands of men and women since 1995, and he sees the benefits daily. He has been on these same treatments since then, and it has saved his hair.  Talk to him about the real chances of side effects.  He sees them only rarely.  Don’t deny yourself the benefits.

The most common hair loss treatment for women is medication such as minoxidil, phenylephrine, and finasteride. The most significant cause of hair loss in women is female-pattern hair loss. Your hairstyle, vitamin deficiency, hormone changes, dieting or rapid weight loss, restrictive diets, side effects from illness or medication, radiation treatment, stress, and over-processed hair can cause hair loss. Medical treatments like laser therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy are effective for genetic hair loss, hair loss due to chemotherapy, and age-related hair thinning.

Yes. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair loss treatments have dramatic results that last. You can see new hair growth in around 3-4 months. PRP therapy improves cell regrowth and tissue healing while promoting the body’s natural hair growth patterns.

While a hair transplant graft can fall out, it is very uncommon. If it happens, it will happen in the first day or two and may cause some bleeding. After ten days, a hair transplant graft is so permanently attached that aggressive or prolonged washing, scrubbing, and brushing will not dislodge it.

Hair transplant costs vary from state to state and provider to provider. The costs can vary by up to 400% across the country. In general, a hair transplant costs between $4,000-18,000. A single graft may cost $5 to $6 per graft, with most sessions requiring 2,500-3,000 grafts.

Hair loss treatment for men and women in Canada can range between $500-3,000 depending on the treatment method or treatment package, number of treatments, and medication prescribed.

The most common causes of hair loss in men are genetics, medical conditions and illnesses, stress or shock, infection, immune system disorders, and grooming habits.

A hair transplant is a long-term or lifelong cure for hair loss and baldness.

You can address hair loss and protect your hair and scalp by changing your diet, consuming more protein, taking a multivitamin, and consuming more vitamin A, vitamin D, or biotin. You should wash your hair regularly to keep your scalp clean and healthy and use a mild shampoo or co-wash. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, rosemary, and mint on your scalp to stimulate hair regrowth. Avoid using harsh chemical hair treatments, heat styling, and aggressive styling techniques. Use a hair claw or spiral hair tie to hold your hair back, and avoid tight hair elastics.

Cosmetic or dermal fillers are a safe cosmetic procedure administered by injections of FDA-approved substances that smooth fine lines and wrinkles and plump the skin. There are many different types of cosmetic fillers, each with a specific purpose.

Cosmetic facial fillers can be injected around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, nose, jaw, forehead, brows, and neck. They typically offer instant results lasting up to one or two years. They restore volume in the face, plump cheeks and lips, and smooth wrinkles. This creates a more youthful, rested appearance.

Most people only have mild, temporary side effects after dermal filler injections. After your first appointment, you should follow all the aftercare instructions we provide to reduce discomfort. You should stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and clear fluid and avoiding caffeine, soda, and alcohol. You can apply ice or cool compresses to ease pain and inflammation and take over-the-counter pain medication. Keep your head elevated to rescue swelling and inflammation and improve circulation. You should maintain a healthy daily skincare routine and use approved skincare products in the morning and evening.

Dermal fillers and cosmetic face fillers offer instant results. You will see full results after around four weeks.

Yes, if you visit an experienced professional for dermal fillers, the results will look subtle and natural.

Before starting any new medication, you should always consult with our team and/or your primary care physician.

As you age and your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin declines, you will notice that your skin is becoming thinner and less elastic. Your skin may start to sag, which causes fine lines and wrinkles, deep wrinkles, and loose excess skin. Dermal fillers can add volume to sunken areas so that your face looks rounder and more youthful. Cosmetic or dermal fillers also make your facial features more symmetrical, plump your cheeks and lips and smooth out wrinkles and creases.

There are many types of dermal fillers, including:

  • Hyaluronic acid – Hyaluronic acid is an acid that occurs naturally in your skin and adds volume and hydration. As you age, your body stops producing hyaluronic acid.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite – Calcium hydroxylapatite is a substance that occurs naturally in your bones. It can be used on deeper wrinkles.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid – Poly-L-lactic acid is a substance that promotes the body’s natural collagen production. It can be used to smooth deep wrinkles.
  • Polymethylmethacrylate – Polymethylmethacrylate fillers are made of collagen infused with small balls that stay under the skin’s surface. This gives your skin firmness and added volume.

Most people don’t experience any negative side effects after getting dermal or cosmetic fillers. Rare but serious side effects are possible, including infection, leakage, nodules or granulomas, blood vessel injury, filler movement, or tissue death. Some people experience mild, temporary side effects, including:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Rash

The longevity of your cosmetic fillers depends on your skin type, the type of filler used, how much is injected, the speed at which your body metabolizes the filler, and the area in which it was injected. Dermal fillers smooth out thin wrinkles and can last six months and a year. Deeper dermal filler injections may last up to two years.

Hyaluronic acid and polymethylmethacrylate fillers are best for fine lines and wrinkles. Calcium hydroxyapatite and poly-l-lactic acid are best for moderate to severe facial wrinkles.

Cosmetic fillers are a safe, low-risk, non-surgical way to restore a youthful appearance and diminish fine lines, wrinkles, facial hollows, and other signs of aging.
