In the past, surgical transplant methods lacked precision, advanced technology, and artistry, so the results were unpredictable or unnatural-looking. Since then, the hair growth industry has been thriving on medicated shampoos, drugs, and potions, yet we know that most people want a one-time, transformative, and permanent restoration of their natural hair.
A hair transplant might be right for you if:
- you no longer want to cover up, wear a hair piece, or camouflage your scalp
- you want a drug-free way to grow your hair
- you’re ready to invest in long-term hair restoration
- you want to dramatically transform your appearance and bring back the thickness, style, and hairline that you once had
- you’re aware that your positivity and self-esteem can be closely tied to how you look
Vancouver Hair Transplant Clients Choose the Experience and Reputation of the THTC
Located conveniently downtown in the heart of the city, we are near multiple modes of transit, ample parking, and world-class accommodations.
We accommodate busy schedules and diverse clientele. The THTC is able to perform multiple hair transplants per week! We have 2 full-time procedure suites dedicated to hair clients, along with numerous private suites where clients undergo laser and PRP (platelet-rich plasma therapy) for hair growth. Our reputation is excellent because of our hair transplant results, our pre- and post-care, and an expertly trained hair transplant team who will make your experience exceptional.
FUE means follicular unit excision. It is the most effective, minimally invasive, and results-based method for hair restoration with a nearly scarless result.
We make a personalized plan for each hair transplant patient using SmartGraft or NeoGraft FUE technology. “Smart” devices allow us to precisely extract follicle grafts with minimal scarring or discomfort. The graft sites are so small (less than 1 mm) that once they heal, even short hair conceals them, so they are not readily obvious, unlike the linear scars that old-fashioned hair transplant methods created.
The procedure is very comfortable for patients, so we are often told that the day was a breeze. You can relax on the treatment bed while our team works, and you can listen to music, scroll on your phone, or even nap. Some patients tell us that their hair transplant day felt like going to the spa!
Before your FUE hair transplant procedure begins, we shave a small area at the back of your head where the hair follicles are found that are resistant to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. Donor grafts are extracted in tiny groups of a few hairs from this resilient growth area.
For short hairstyles, we recommend having a pre-haircut so that the donor area looks “normal” as it grows in. There will be a few temporary accommodations to make while healing, but many people can successfully hide that they underwent a hair transplant.
The recovery time after FUE is 7 to 10 days, with moderate swelling and scab formation typical through the first week, but resolved during the second week.
Your hair transplant results can last for decades – even a lifetime! However, it is essential to be patient early on. New growth appears around the third month, and it takes a full year before the transplanted hairs grow optimally.
Good things come to those who wait. Your permanent hair transplant result could be the best investment in yourself that you ever make. Hassle-free, washable, stylable, lasting hair to run your fingers through is worth the time frame required.
