What is Hair Restoration from ATERA™ FUE?
Hair restoration from ATERA™ FUE uses advanced technologies for the follicular unit extraction (FUE). ATERA™ FUE is unique because the system keeps the hair follicle hydrated to provide better priming for the grafts. Hydrating the follicular units also streamlines the process. The result is an incredibly natural-looking hair growth pattern, even along the hairline.

- Short recovery time of 24 to 48 hours
- Less than 24 hours of downtime

Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration from ATERA™ FUE?
Dr. Taghizadeh examines your hair loss during the consultation to determine if ATERA™ FUE is right for you. Typically, what he looks for are signs of male-pattern and female-pattern baldness. Thinning hair may be caused by other issues, such as hormonal changes, stress, hair products, medications, and some chronic illnesses. By ruling out these other causes of hair loss in men and women, Dr. Taghizadeh ensures that his patients are good candidates for ATERA™ FUE.
Hair Restoration from ATERA™ FUE Procedure
The ATERA™ FUE procedure involves taking hair follicles from the bottom of the scalp along the top of the neck. The area is prepared by trimming the hair to the proper length. Dr. Taghizadeh may require you to avoid trimming or cutting your hair for a period of time prior to the procedure. A local anesthesia is injected into the scalp to numb the donor and transplant areas. Using three to five-times magnification, Dr. Taghizadeh uses the ATERA™ FUE device to extract hair follicles of the desired diameter. The ATERA™ system stores, hydrates, and counts the follicles. Next, the hair follicles are inserted into the transplant area of the scalp. The length of the procedure depends upon the extent of thinning and balding that needs to be corrected.
