Use Light to Combat Balding and Thinning
At Dilworth Facial Plastic Surgery, we provide a comprehensive approach to hair restoration. In addition to surgical options such as follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplant (FUT or “strip procedure”), we offer low-level laser therapy (LLLT). This is a treatment option that is ideal for men and women with mild to moderate thinning, as it stimulates hair growth of the remaining existing hair. Dilworth Facial Plastic Surgery offers the device for a patient’s use at home.
Scientifically proven and FDA cleared, these devices stimulate hair growth on a cellular level through a process known as “photobiology.” The treatment is safe, effective, and requires no medication. LLLT can strengthen existing follicles and may rescue thinning hair follicles. It cannot replace hair that has been completely lost—surgical hair restoration must be used in such cases. Patients who wish to explore surgical hair restoration can discuss their options with Dr. Andrea Garcia and Dr. Josh Surowitz.
