Hair Restoration a Specialty

Dr. Beckenstein and his staff take the time to understand their patients’ cosmetic goals. If you’ve ever wished that you could regrow your natural hair, it’s time to stop wishing and start discovering your options at his medical practice. Dr. Beckenstein makes an excellent choice for your hair restoration procedure because:

  • He specializes in evaluating your unique situation, taking the time to understand your hair loss patterns and the possible causes.
  • He will review your options in detail for your Birmingham hair transplant, replacement, or therapy, including the highly effective NeoGraft® system and Sunetics G Low Level Laser Therapy, and scalp micropigmentation, or SHFST.

Hair Replacement Options

Before choosing a hair replacement option, the cause of your hair loss must be determined. Dr. Beckenstein will conduct a thorough examination, lab analysis, and computer assessment to diagnose a cause. Once it has been determined, a treatment protocol will be designed for you that may include one or more of the following options:

  • NeoGraft hair transplant
  • Sunetics G Low Level Laser Therapy
  • PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Prescribed medication with a combination of other modalities. Early hair thinning may require medications with or without low level laser therapy.
  • Scalp micropigmentation

NeoGraft Revolutionizes Hair Transplantation

Neograft-LogoAlways seeking ways to provide his patients with the most recent advances in hair replacement technology, Dr. Beckenstein now offers the revolutionary NeoGraft hair transplant system.

If you long to restore your hair to its full glory but hesitate because you have no time for the surgery and significant recovery time you may have heard about with traditional hair transplants, you’ll be delighted to discover the NeoGraft system. NeoGraft is minimally invasive and uses only local anesthesia, there are no incisions, no large scars, and a shorter recovery period. More grafts can be placed during each session which reduces the amount of procedures and your cost!

As a board-certified plastic surgeon who has been practicing for many years, Dr. Beckenstein has the skills and experience needed to refine the procedures involved in hair replacement. Birmingham NeoGraft uses the latest technology to harvest individual hair follicles without removing large strips of scalp. As a result, he avoids the painful recovery period and long scar on the back of the scalp that result from other types of hair replacement surgery. Some hair replacement practices offer individual follicle harvesting, but are slow and tedious. NeoGraft technology speeds up this process with amazing efficiency.

Sunetics G Low Level Laser Therapy

sunetics-logoDr. Beckenstein is proud to offer Sunetics G Low Level Laser Therapy as a simple, non‐invasive solution for slowing and even reversing hair loss in adult men and women.

Sunetics G is an excellent solution for people who are beginning to notice early indicators of hair loss or thinning. These comfortable, relaxing treatments deliver consistent, even laser light to penetrate the scalp and increase blood flow to their hair follicles. Over time, this promotes hair growth, producing measurable results across all areas of the head. Sunetics G creates impressive results on its own and may also benefit NeoGraft patients by promoting the health of the graft.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation, or SHFST, which stands for Scalp Hair Follicle Simulation Tattooing, is an excellent option for men who may not be good candidates for hair transplantation, whether due to insufficient donor hair, rapid hair loss, or another reason. SHFST may also be used to camouflage donor scars left by a strip method transplant. The procedure uses a medical‐grade tattooing practice to simulate the look of closely shaved or buzzed hair, an attractive, youthful style that’s popular with many.

SHFST was created by renowned cosmetic tattoo artist Andrea Darby. Dr. Beckenstein and Genger Ferrell, his surgical first assistant, are the first practitioners in the United States to earn their certification in this exciting treatment. SHFST is typically performed in a single session with local anesthesia. A touch‐up session or 2 may be required several months after the initial session. During your consultation, Dr. Beckenstein evaluates your specific case and talks to you about your hair loss. Together, you’ll develop the treatment plan that’s most likely to give you the natural‐looking results you want.
