Hair Loss Help
Once extracted, the hair follicles are transplanted to the recipient site where hair loss or balding is present. Grafting sessions are intended to replace lost hair or thicken a thinning hairline. Follicular units are placed hair-by-hair where re-growth is desired. FUE is the least invasive of hair restoration procedures.

What is ATPv?
ATPv is a patented formulation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) encapsulated within nanometer-sized liposomes. ATP itself is the universal energy molecule for all living cells. The ATPv formulation allows cells to obtain ATP directly, even if they are isolated from blood or energy supply. The hair follicles that were harvested and transplanted into healthy scalp tissue must survive another 3-5 days while they connect to the scalp’s blood/oxygen supply which is why the Wise Center sends their patients home with the solution post-operation.
Hair typically begins to grow back on the recipient sites within 3-4 months, looking natural and dense. Depending on the patient, recovery times vary, but are commonly fast. Follow-up procedures can be easily performed with the FUE technique because additional incisions are not required. The Wise Institute also offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy, a non-surgical treatment option, combined with ACell to stimulate and increase blood flow to the head, in turn helping hair follicles grow healthily and quickly and is the only practice in Morris County and other areas of Northern New Jersey to offer the purest form of PRP which produces the highest quality results.
Compare FUE To: FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation
The main distinction between the two methods is the manner in which the hair follicles are extracted. FUT known as the “Strip Method” utilizes a linear piece of the scalp removed from the backside of the head to restore hair in balding areas rather than the graft by graft extraction technique used in FUE. While FUE is the least invasive option in hair restoration procedures, FUT is a surgical procedure that has other benefits.
