Invest in Your Appearance: Understanding Hair Restoration Cost
Hair loss is prevalent in both men and women. The condition can significantly impact your quality of life but treatment is available. Dr. Joseph Galitzin uses sophisticated hair restoration technology to improve patients' confidence in their appearance. Our team is trained and certified to perform follicular unit extraction (FUE) using the ARTAS® Robotic System. At Skin Care at 5th Ave., we understand hair restoration is an investment. Your goals should not be compromised due to treatment cost, which is why we accept flexible financing through CareCredit®. In order to determine hair transplant cost at our office in Peachtree, GA, we will take several factors into account, including your degree of hair loss. Customizing your treatment plan will allow us to provide the most accurate estimate.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your hair, hair restoration can be a worthwhile investment.
Evaluating Your Treatment Goals
One of the most important factors that will determine the final treatment cost is how many grafts are needed to meet your aesthetic goals. For most patients, we are able to complete approximately 1,700 grafts per treatment. If you require more grafts to meet your hair restoration goals, we may need to schedule a follow-up procedure which will add to the overall cost of your treatment.
Hair Thickness and Degree of Hair Loss
Generally, the number of grafts needed will depend on the degree of your hair loss. The extent of hair loss in men is usually determined by The Norwood Scale, while the Ludwig Scale or Savin Scale is used for evaluating women. Larger areas of thin or missing hair will require more grafts, which will obviously raise treatment cost. If you are simply restoring a receding hairline as opposed to a significant portion of your crown, your treatment cost will likely be lower.
Your goals should not be compromised due to treatment cost, which is why we accept flexible financing plans through CareCredit.
Robotic FUE works best for patients with dark, thick hair because the ARTAS system is more easily able to identify these hairs for grafting. In addition, if you have very fine hair, you will require more grafts to restore adequate fullness and coverage to the area.
Cost Compared to Other Treatments
FUE is generally more expensive than follicular unit transplantation, or FUT, surgery. During FUT, a strip of tissue is removed from the back of the head. Although it is more expensive, FUE is much more precise, leaves negligible scarring, and is considered to be a virtually painless harvesting method.
The ARTAS unit is equipped with a stereoscopic vision system which will select the most viable hairs and strategically remove follicular units without affecting the appearance of the donor area. The robotic system also significantly minimizes the risk of human error and fatigue which can occur during manual transplantation. Lastly, there are no incisions, staples, or stitches required and most patients will be able to return to work and normal activities a day or two after treatment.
Financing Is Available
Although hair restoration is considered a cosmetic treatment and is generally not covered by insurance, Dr. Galitzin is committed to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. We believe anxiety due to cost should never be a deterrent. Our practice works with CareCredit to help you arrange low-interest, flexible financing.
