Charleston Hair Loss Restoration
Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process for both women and men and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. Until NeoGraft™, FDA Approved “State-of-the-Art” Solution for Hair Loss. NeoGraft’s™ advanced technology offers a discrete solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural-looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime, and a shorter recovery period. Hair restoration with NeoGraft™ is unnoticeable, making it your secret to tell.
Dr. Hochman combines an extensive background in facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck, performing thousands of facial cosmetic plastic surgeries and procedures to give you the look you want.
In the past, he has performed hair restoration using the “strip” method. Keeping up with best practices, with the advent of Follicular Unit Extraction and implantation and the technology of NeoGraft, Dr. Hochman has switched his hair loss restoration approach. This will translate into the better patient experience and state-of-the-art results. A surgeon must be properly trained in all techniques to be able to offer the best choices and Dr. Hochman is recognized as a leading expert with decades of experience in every procedure, as well as many other enhancement procedures, so you will be in highly qualified hands.
The Advantages of our Hair Loss Restoration
With the NeoGraft™ Automated FUE Hair Transplant device, we have taken the benefits of the FUE method and have automated the technique. First, the NeoGraft™ device uses a motorized punch that gently rotates around each individual graft (slowly rotates approximately 2 times) in a perfectly cylindrical shape. Second, the NeoGraft™ device uses a controlled pneumatic pressure (suction) to slide out the follicles smoothly and uniformly, so there is no pulling and twisting as with forceps which puts the follicle at risk for damage.
The “minimally invasive” NeoGraft™ Automated (FUE) and Implantation Hair Restoration procedure is quickly becoming the new “Gold Standard” for hair transplant procedures.

Alternative Methods for Regrowth without Surgery
WE UNDERSTAND THAT SOME CONSUMERS PREFER PAIN FREE, NON-INVASIVE, AFFORDABLE, NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR HAIR LOSS AND THINNING. WE HAVE CUSTOMIZABLE SOLUTIONS TO MEET EVERY NEED.
Hair Transplantation Growth and Success Increased with Platelet Rich Plasma is the game changer with significant gains. There are many benefits derived from using non-surgical PRP treatments to promote healing for hair growth by generating new hair growth, thickening thinned out hair and making hair transplants grow thicker and healthier.
As we age some hairs randomly begin to shrink in width and not grow as long. Each group of hairs contains both terminal hairs and thinner hairs (like the hairs on the rest of the body), making the scalp look less full. Eventually, some of the thinner hairs are lost and the actual number of follicles may be reduced. In about 30% of adults, even the hair around the back and side of the head (fringe area) gradually thins. PRP stimulates the stem cells around the follicles causing them to thicken.
Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from their blood supply. Therefore, introducing these platelets containing hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important for tissue regeneration helps the healing process, increase blood circulation, and enhance hair growth.
The platelets are acquired from the patient's own blood. A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn by the nurse and using a centrifuge isolates the other blood cells from a platelet concentrate, embedded in its own plasma. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. Since it is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment.
The rich concentration of platelets now has to be applied to the hair follicles or skin where hair loss has begun in one of three ways:
- During a transplant, after the follicles are removed, they are soaked in the plasma to increase their health and strength.
- Plasma can also be rubbed on the scalp where implants have been inserted and areas of thinning. absorbed and speed up the healing process
- Plasma can be injected into the scalp in the thinning areas.
If we introduce platelets (PRP) by infiltrating the follicles by soaking them after extraction but before transplantation then apply PRP in the area of the scalp with damaged hair follicles, it amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism, enhancing hair growth and stimulating the new follicles which have been implanted.
The use of PRP to treat hair loss has the potential to change the way hair loss and thinning is treated around the world as it’s a revolutionary, new treatment for hair loss. Dr. Hochman is on the cutting edge with its use for the growth of thinning and transplanted hair. The progressive healing process begins immediately and the success is greatly enhanced.
The Hair Loss Treatment Center has another option available to patients–light therapy.
