I just want to remove my grafts as they grow. Do you think it is reasonable to have it done with laser treatment. My scar has not healed all the way, but I guess I’ll have to live with it.
The good news and the bad news about hair transplants, is that they are permanent. With that said, they can be removed with three types of surgical procedures. If there is no skin deformity associated with it (common in the older types of plugs), then the removal process may be easier.
Lasers have a high failure rate when used to ‘kill’ scalp hair and they will not deal with skin deformities associated with the older type of hair transplants. Be very careful about laser removal of scalp hair from hair transplants. The effective frequency used by lasers is more suited to less skin thickness found elsewhere on the body. The transplanted hairs may go too deeply into the scalp to be impacted by these lasers. If you look to our repair section in our patient photos and the articles we published in the journals on our website, you can see the various before and after pictures of the repair process and much of the details of the surgical repairs.
