Whether due to an inadequate procedure performed at another location or other factors, some patients find that their hair continues to thin in the years following their initial hair loss treatment. Many of our Chicago, IL, patients seek the expert care of our doctors to restore density and fullness to their hair following their initial hair loss treatment. Learn more about hair loss treatment to improve hair density.

Are You a Candidate for Hair Loss Retreatment?

Many men and women who undergo hair loss treatment find that they experience continuing thinning. Often, the thinning is a consequence of a hair loss treatment that was poorly performed at another office. Widely set plugs and other old techniques can leave hair appearing thin or patchy. Other potential causes of decreasing hair density can include:

  • Genetics
  • Medications
  • Hormonal changes
  • Stress
  • Certain hairstyles

No matter what the cause of your thinning hair, our doctors have helped many men and women achieve fantastic outcomes after a previous poorly done hair restoration. Our doctors combine new methods and specialized skills to deliver outcomes that look natural.

Before your candidacy for retreatment to improve hair density can be established, one of our doctors will have to determine that you have sufficient hair. In some cases, hair can be used from donor sites elsewhere on the body.

What Are My Hair Loss Treatment Options?

If you have grown frustrated with store-bought products that promise to improve hair density, you are not alone. Surgery is the most effective means of improving hair density. Our Chicago office offers a wide range of surgical treatment options that can improve hair density.

Your hair loss retreatment will be customized to meet your cosmetic and personal goals. Depending on your needs, your treatment may include one or more of the following.

Stick-and-place Technique

This method is ideal for placing hair in an area that has existing hair. Our doctors work with small openings that create less skin damage. Smaller openings also allow for greater transplant density. The stick-and-place method eliminates the risk of having unfilled areas of the scalp that can leave your hairline looking thin.

Lateral Slit Technique

The lateral slit technique duplicates the natural alignment of your hair follicles. The surgical approach eliminates the risk of “pluggy” results that are common with older hair transplantation methods. The angle of each follicle placement can be controlled to allow for maximal coverage and natural-looking results.

Donor strip harvesting, scar repair, follicular unit extraction, and other techniques may be used to restore hair density as well.
