Hair loss can happen to anyone for a variety of reasons. However, hair loss is more common in adults and even more common in men as they grow older. One of our specialties here at Jupiter Dermatology & Hair Restoration is helping our patients regain their confidence through effective hair restoration.

What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss can be caused by a variety of medical conditions as well as genetics. However, more often, it has to do with the natural aging process and genetics rather than a medical condition. The most common type of hair loss in men is referred to as male pattern baldness and can be characterized by a receding hairline or losing hair at the crown of the head first. Women may also experience hair loss, however, there is less of a distinct pattern.
How Can Hair be Restored?
At Jupiter Dermatology & Hair Restoration we offer a variety of hair restoration treatments for the head, eyebrows, and beard.
FUE Hair Transplant
FUE, or follicular unit excision Restoration is a method in which individual hairs are taken from around the head. Each follicle is removed with a special device instead of removing an entire strip of follicles. This method only involves tiny scars rather than a linear patch at the donor site. In general, FUE patients will be able to recover faster than FUT Patients. However, patients must have their hair cut very short for this procedure.
FUT Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Transplant, or FUT, is also known as the “strip” technique. This method does not require the patient to shave their head; however, this method is more invasive than FUE restoration. Since this method does involve a larger incision, the recovery period will be longer. Depending on how you like to wear your hair and your aesthetic goals, Ricardo Mejia, MD, FISHRS will be able to help you decide on the right method for you.
Eyebrow & Facial Hair Transplant
Gaining in popularity, facial hair and eyebrow transplant can be especially helpful for those who have genetic or medical conditions causing hair sparseness or total loss. Both of these methods are completed using the FUE technique which is more precise for smaller areas. Ricardo Mejia, MD will take special care to develop natural-looking results that suit your cosmetic goals.
