At Gelman Hair Restoration, we understand that getting the facts about hair replacement is just as important as understanding the fiction that is out there….here are the FACTS.

Is there a cure for baldness?

The best treatment for baldness is surgical hair replacement combined with medicines to foster hair growth such as propecia.

The marketing clearance of Propecia is based on data from three one-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trials involving 1,879 men aged 18 to 41 with mild to moderate hair loss of the vertex and anterior mid-scalp areas. In addition, 1,215 of the men who had hair loss at the vertex, or top of the head, were studied for another year.

Will my new hair be permanent?

After we transplant your own naturally bald resistant donor hair, it will continue to grow throughout your lifetime. Within 4-6 months you will see a noticeable difference and within a year you will be growing a thicker head of hair every month.

When will my newly transplanted hair start to grow?

Transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair within 3 – 5 months post surgery. Within a year, transplanted hair is fully mature and continues to grow throughout your lifetime.
