Hair Restoration in Newport Beach, CA

Can I re-grow my own hair?

While there are several hair transplant procedures available, people often agree as to which method offers the best results. At Vive, we believe that the decision is largely a matter of personal preference. That’s why we offer several convenient hair restoration options in Newport Beach that allow our clients to determine which is right for them.

Before & Afters

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Technology by NeoGraft®

If you want a natural look but wish to minimize post-op discomfort and recovery time, a transplant via Follicular Unit Extraction may be the perfect solution. At Vive, we employ state-of-the-art Neograft® automated technology in order to harvest and transplant a larger number of grafts, utilize a wider donor area, and guarantee a fast recovery.

The Neograft® machine extracts follicular units (naturally-occurring groups of 1-4 hairs) with the help of a small, rotating punch. Each unit is automatically suctioned into container of holding solution until ready to use. Needlepoint incisions are made at recipient sites, into which grafts can then be inserted manually or through the use of air pressure. As neither donor nor recipient sites require stitches or closures, they heal quickly and scars are virtually invisible. In fact, most people who undergo transplant via FUE are ready to return to work the very next day! It’s simply the fastest, most convenient way to obtain a more youthful hairline, without having to take time out of your busy schedule to do it.





Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) The Manual or Strip Method

Follicular Unit Transplant procedures are highly regarded because the end result is so unbelievably natural-looking. Unlike Follicular Unit Extraction in which each graft is harvested as a separate plug, FUT works by removing donor hair in narrow strips from the back of the head, which are then dissected into follicular units by a technician. This allows a greater number of grafts to be completed in a single session, and because they mimic the natural arrangement of hairs on the scalp, you never have to worry that the end result will appear patchy or “pluggy.”

One of the best things about having your FUT procedure at Vive at that we close donor areas with Tricofytic sutures. By overlapping the skin on either side of the donor area, and then stitching it together, hair follicles from the lower layer are able to grow through the upper one to render scars virtually invisible (especially good news for those who prefer short styles). No matter how you wear your hair after your FUT procedure, we guarantee that no one will be able to tell that you’ve ever had a transplant!

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration

Younger individuals are generally not ideal candidates for hair transplantation until the natural balding or recession process is complete. When this is the case, a regimen of oral supplements and topical ointments may be used to support existing follicle health and encourage new hair regrowth. At Vive, you’ll work with one of our certified physicians to determine the course of action that’s right for you.
