Hair loss can be a difficult experience for both men and women. While it is more common among men, women can also experience it.

Aging will inevitably result in hair thinning. However, there are several other factors that can contribute to hair loss. Certain medications and foods can speed up hair loss. Stress also has been known to contribute to losing hair. And, of course, illness can also affect your hair.
Fortunately, many of these contributors to hair loss can be avoided by making changes in your life. However, the most prominent factor in hair loss is much deeper: your genes.
Over time, both men and women experience hair thinning. This is due to the effect of hormones on your follicles. Genetics play a huge part in how susceptible your follicles are to hormonal changes and aging. Some people will go through life with a full head of hair well into later years. Others might notice significant hair loss even in their 20s.
We are not at a point where we can alter our genetic code, but science and medicine have at least developed effective ways to counter hair loss.
Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
This involves injections that contain immune-privileged cells derived from healthy amniotic fluid. When combined with the patient’s own blood plasma, this can encourage and generate growth across their scalp.
The results can vary from patient to patient. Some individuals will notice a significant slowdown in the loss of hair each day. For others, it can even cause regrowth, reversing the thinning of your hair. During your consultation, Dr. Linville will help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
Neograft is a minimally invasive transplant treatment. It has been cleared by the FDA and has been shown to be highly effective. This treatment option uses minimally invasive follicular unit extraction (“FUE”) to restore your hair. The treatment takes individual follicles from the back of your head and transplants them into the affected area.
It doesn’t require surgery, and there is no need for incisions or stitches. This means you will have no residual scars, and the results appear natural. While this is not a surgical procedure, it can require a small amount of downtime to heal from the transplant. Still, recovery is quick, and the results are immediate.
Hair transplant surgery is one of the most common methods of treating male and female hair loss. Having thick, healthy hair is something both men and women seek to have. There are two methods for transplants that Dr. Cain Linville offers, including follicular unit transplantation (“FUT”) and follicular unit extraction (“FUE”).
FUT at a Glance
- Most popular method of treatment

- Uses your own natural hair follicles from a strip of skin
FUE At a Glance

The method you choose will depend on your hair restoration goals.
