Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any questions? We are happy to answer you most frequently asked questions about hair loss, treatment options and hair restoration procedure.

How does it work?

Using only local anesthetic, we gently extract individual micro hair grafts from the back of your head. These grafts may then be implanted into the balding area to regrow thick, healthy, natural hair.

Does it work on African-American hair?

Yes, the hair restoration technology we use at Capily Institute works with all types of hair. Despite common misconceptions concerning textured or curly hair, our advanced technology combined with our skilled providers helps us to accommodate patients of all ethnicities.

Does it work on women?

Absolutely. Capily Institute provides permanent solutions for hair loss, thinning hair and eyebrow restoration for women as well as for men.

Where do you take the hair from?

The follicles we use for the hair restoration procedure are collected from a donor site located at the back of your head where the supply is the fullest and healthiest.

Will this procedure make more bald from the back?

Not at all. Prior to the procedure, we meticulously check the density of your donor site and make sure to extract the hair grafts in a way that leaves it remaining healthy and full.

Will my new hair fall out?

The hair that we harvest from the donor site is genetically pre-programmed not to fall out. It is your own naturally growing hair and you do not need to worry about losing it.

Does this procedure leave scars where the hair is removed?

No. We use a rotating punch that removes the follicles individually. It leaves small holes that re-epithelialize in days and are not visible .

How long does the hair restoration procedure last?

Small procedures, like eyebrow restoration procedures can be may take up to 4 hours. However, most hair restoration procedures take at least 6-8 hours.

Does the anesthesia numb the area the entire time?

During your procedure, we will administer local anesthesia to ensure that your donor and recipient areas remain numb. These medications will wear off shortly after the procedure is complete (similar to Novocaine for a tooth repair).

How long will transplanted hair grow without falling when it’s been transplanted at mid-20s?

Typically, hair that is transplanted from the designated donor site is not susceptible to the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which contributes to most hair loss in men. Because of this fact, any hair transplanted from this “safe zone” of donor hair, will continue to grow as if it were still in the original location, most times lasting a lifetime.

What age is most suitable for a hair transplant surgery?

Every patient’s hair loss is different. Most of our doctors recommend that patients treat their hair loss starting in their late 20s and early 30s. This helps the doctor to properly assess the patient’s loss and to create an appropriate treatment plan.

Can I transplant beard hair to my scalp?

While it is possible, it is not recommended by most doctors to transplant body hair to the scalp because of the differing textures and growth rates.

How long does it take for hair to grow after a hair transplant?

After a hair restoration procedure, most transplanted follicles will go into a resting (telogen) phase which leads to eventual shedding of the hair shaft. After the follicle sheds, it typically takes 2-3 months for the follicles to begin growing again.

Does hair transplant surgery last a lifetime?

The carefully selected donor site is chosen because these follicles are not susceptible to the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which contributes to most hair loss in men. Because of this fact, any hair transplanted from this “safe zone” of donor hair, will continue to grow as if it were still in the original location, most times lasting a lifetime.

What is the best and safest and most effective and economic or cheapest remedy for male baldness?

This is a decision made between the patient and the hair restoration surgeon. Each patient has their own health history and economic circumstances. It would be best to have a consultation for a proper evaluation of your loss. From there, our team will help to develop the best treatment plan for you.
