Hair restoration: Grafting technology at its best.
At one time, hair transplants were obvious. A person was left with row upon row of transplanted follicles, along with a scar on the back of the scalp from which the follicles were harvested. Dr. Chang helps his patients restore hair with NeoGraft, a system that harvests and transplants single hair follicles with a higher success rate, faster, and with exceptionally natural-looking results.
Receding hairline or going bald?
If you have a receding hairline or balding areas you would like to restore, you deserve the advantages of grafting technology at its best, performed with extreme skill and meticulous attention to detail. Dr. Chang takes great care in hair angle and location to create a look that appears fully natural.
What is hair rejuvenation?
Hair rejuvenation is an advanced approach to hair loss with the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) to trigger the regenerative processes of the body. PRP is extracted from a sample of your own blood. The blood is comprised of two components, red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets. Platelets have an almost magical capacity to heal, rich “growth factors,” the body’s messengers that signal cells to function and heal.
Hair regeneration technology to stimulate healthy hair growth
When injected into the scalp, the hair follicles are stimulated, promoting new hair growth, and healthier, thicker hair strands. If you are seeing the early signs of hair loss, with excessive shedding and thinner hair strands, taking action now with PRP hair rejuvenation can be an effective way to ward off further hair loss. The earlier the treatment is performed, the better the outcome.
What is FUE hair restoration?
FUE means “follicular unit extraction” is the process of harvesting single follicles for transplant to a thinning area of the scalp. Once performed by hand, the process required many, many hours, as each follicle was carefully harvested with the help of a scalpel. With NeoGraft, a revolutionary development in hair restoration, the hair follicles are harvested with an advanced tool that is accurate, fast, and better protects the follicle, increasing the number of follicles that flourish in the new location.
What is the hair restoration procedure?
The process involves the following steps:
- Your scalp is numbed with local anesthesia, so the procedure is comfortable to experience.
- Hair follicles are harvested from the donor area at the back of the head with controlled pneumatic pressure, sliding the follicles out smoothly without twisting or pulling.
- The recipient site for the transplanted follicles is created, with each site in the proper angle and orientation for a natural appearance.
- The follicles are separated by size and carefully transplanted into the balding or thinning areas.

"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror.
