More than 80 million men and women experience some form of hair loss. A hair transplant can usually restore what you’ve lost – and deliver a boost to your confidence as well.

Allure Institute’s surgical hair restoration approach is a minimally invasive option that offers completely natural-looking results and a fuller head of hair that can be colored, cut, and styled any way you’d like.
Hair restoration involves transplanting donor hair from one part of the scalp (where hair is less susceptible to the miniaturizing effects of DHT) to an area that lacks ample hair. New surgical techniques developed by Allure Institute minimize scarring and accelerates recovery time.
When surgery is not an ideal option, other techniques are also available, including PRP hair regrowth, micro needling, medication, and vitamin supplementation. A combination of therapies may also be recommended.
Non-surgical hair restoration solutions, when administered
properly, can be highly effective in restoring a natural, younger hairline with no visible scars.
Surgical Hair Restoration Procedures
FUT Hair Transplant
Short for follicular unit transplant, FUT involves extracting a thin linear strip of hair from the back of the patient’s head (donor zone). The strip is then divided under magnification into follicular units and then artfully transplanted to areas that have experienced hair loss.
FUT hair transplants are the best choice for large cases requiring over 2,000 grafts. Our skilled surgical team will maximize the number of grafts with the least amount of impact on your donor area.
The recovery process is similar to FUE, with many of our patients returning to work on the 2nd-day post-surgery.
FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Excision is a more recent innovation in surgical hair restoration involving the removal of hair groupings from the patient’s safe donor zone and transplanting into areas of loss. At the Allure Institute, FUE is accomplished using a motorized punch that leaves behind a barely noticeable circular scar even if the patient wants to have his head shaved.
This is the preferred procedure for those patients needing a smaller amount of grafts. It is most important to work with a surgical team that has years of experience with FUE surgery so you get the best results with the least amount of trauma to the grafts, native hairs, and donor zone.

PRP Platelet Rich Plasma
This hair loss treatment leverages your body’s own form of regenerative medicine to help treat both male and female pattern hair loss. The treatment involves injecting platelets extracted from your own blood into your scalp to restore thinning hair, improve hair thickness and build back density. PRP has well-documented success with a high patient satisfaction rating.
At the Allure Institute, we use PRP Intraoperatively to support transplanted grafts and speed scalp healing. We also use PRP as a stand-alone treatment to stimulate healthy hair growth.
PRP as a stand-alone treatment is given in a series of 3 treatments spaced 30 to 40 days apart. The best results are seen in 6 to 8 months following treatments.
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is a procedure that creates microscopic punctures in the skin using a handheld device with tiny needles.
The process results in increased blood flow to the area,
creating an influx of growth factors that stimulate the healing of your skin along with wound healing mechanisms.
Medications by Prescription
The 2 medications most often prescribed for Androgenetic Alopecia in Men are Minoxidil and Finasteride. Recent advancements in compounding medications have given the Allure Institute the ability to combine hair loss prevention and hair regrowth properties into a medical-grade topical solution.
While many men and women try over-the-counter (nonprescription) formulas and topicals, prescription-strength medications have been robustly studied for effectiveness and safety.
Coordinating with a doctor is critical when taking prescription
medications to understand what is the cause of your hair loss, any interactions with medications you might be currently taking, and to be aware of any potential side effects.
Vitamins play a major role in regulating your heath and vitamin deficiency can lead to serious issues, including hair loss. For certain patients, supplementing your diet with vitamins can slow hair loss and even stimulate more healthy hair growth.
If you would like to consider Vitamin Supplementation, we would recommend having blood tests done to uncover any vitamin irregularities that would need to be addressed.
At Allure Institute, we take a comprehensive approach to restoring a youthful hairline to help you feel more confident.
LLLT or Low-level Laser Light Therapy
Low-Level Laser Light Therapy acts to increase blood flow in the targeted region of the scalp, increasing the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles. This helps to produce thicker hair shafts and results in fuller-looking hair overall.
LLLT stimulates the stem cells responsible for the regeneration of the hair follicles, encouraging hair regrowth. It also works to increase the production of ATP and the metabolic process of the cells for faster hair growth. LLLT is most often prescribed in combination with topical therapy AMF851md for the best overall results
