The Advanced SmartGraft FUE System

Dr. Mendelsohn offers one of the most advanced hair restoration technologies available today: the SmartGraft hair restoration system.

SmartGraft uses FUE (follicular unit extraction) technology which can be one simple solution for hair loss in both men and women. The SmartGraft system was developed by a leading team of physicians, medical scientists, and engineers who understood the importance of helping to assist physicians with their FUE surgeries to give patients an alternative to the visible linear scarring that occurs with the traditional strip method.

SmartGraft uses a less intrusive method to restore hair loss than the strip method. Through a process known as “fue hair restoration,” SmartGraft uses your own hair to produce the most natural results. The procedure is completed in-office, during a single visit, which means less discomfort and less recovery. And the best part? SmartGraft produces permanent results.

FUE with SmartGraft poses countless benefits over the older strip method of hair restoration, so it is no wonder that many patients are asking for SmartGraft. Among the benefits of a SmartGraft procedure are:

  • Lifetime results
  • Minimally invasive
  • A single, in-office procedure
  • A completely natural look
  • No linear scar
  • Fast recovery

Understanding the Causes of Hair Loss

At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Cincinnati, we believe that a comprehensive understanding of the causes of hair loss is crucial for effective treatment. Led by Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, our team is committed to educating our patients about the various factors that can contribute to hair thinning and loss, ensuring personalized and effective treatment plans.

Genetic Factors

The most common cause of hair loss is genetic, known as androgenetic alopecia, affecting both men and women. This type of hair loss is characterized by a pattern that is inherited from one’s family, involving a gradual reduction in hair thickness and density over time.

Hormonal Changes

Hormonal changes can significantly impact hair growth. Conditions such as pregnancy, menopause, and thyroid problems can alter the hormonal balance in the body, leading to temporary or permanent hair loss. Additionally, imbalances in androgens, male hormones that are present in both men and women, can also cause hair to thin.

Medical Conditions

Several medical conditions can lead to hair loss, including autoimmune diseases like alopecia areata, where the immune system attacks hair follicles. Scalp infections, such as ringworm, and diseases such as lupus and diabetes, can also cause significant hair loss.

Medications and Treatments

Certain medications, including those for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure, can contribute to hair loss. It’s important to discuss the potential side effects of any medication with a healthcare provider.

Nutritional Deficiencies

A lack of essential nutrients, such as iron, vitamins D and B, and protein, can impair hair health and growth. Ensuring a balanced diet is crucial for maintaining healthy hair.


Physical and emotional stress can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium. This causes hair follicles to enter a resting phase prematurely, resulting in shedding and subsequent thinning.

Styling and Treatments

Over-styling and harsh hair treatments, such as tight braiding, excessive heat, and harsh chemicals, can lead to traction alopecia, damaging hair follicles and causing hair to fall out.

Environmental Factors

Environmental factors such as pollutants and UV radiation can weaken hair follicles and affect hair growth. Protecting your hair from environmental damage is an important aspect of hair care.

Tailored Hair Loss Treatments

Understanding the specific cause of hair loss is essential in determining the most effective treatment. At our center, we provide a thorough assessment to identify the underlying cause of your hair loss. Based on this diagnosis, Dr. Mendelsohn and our team develop customized treatment plans that may include medications, topical treatments, or advanced procedures like FUT, FUE, SmartGraft, NeoGraft, and the Artas Robot Hair Transplant.

Topical Treatments for Hair Loss

Hair loss, a concern that affects millions worldwide, can be distressing. Fortunately, topical treatments offer a non-invasive solution to this pervasive issue. At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Cincinnati, our expertise in innovative hair restoration methods positions us as leaders in the field.

Minoxidil Solutions and Foams

One of the most widely recognized treatments, Minoxidil, is available in solutions and foams and is clinically proven to stimulate hair growth in both men and women. Regular application directly to the scalp can slow hair thinning and enhance hair density. Our team guides patients through correct application techniques, ensuring optimal results.

Natural DHT Blockers

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a key factor in hair loss. Our range includes natural DHT blockers like saw palmetto and pumpkin seed oil, which help reduce DHT levels without the side effects commonly associated with synthetic alternatives. These products are perfect for patients preferring a holistic approach.

Peptide-Based Serums

The latest advancements in hair restoration include peptide-based serums. These powerful formulations penetrate the scalp to revive dormant hair follicles by nourishing them at a cellular level. Our patients have reported noticeable improvements in hair thickness and vitality within weeks.

Customized Scalp Treatments

Each patient’s hair loss pattern is unique, which is why we offer customized scalp treatments tailored to individual needs. These treatments combine growth stimulants, anti-inflammatories, and nutrients specifically chosen to address your specific hair loss challenges.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Restoration

At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, located in the heart of Cincinnati, we harness the natural healing powers of your own body to combat hair loss through Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. This cutting-edge treatment has gained significant attention for its success in regenerating hair growth without surgical intervention.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy involves drawing a small amount of your blood, which is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into the scalp where hair thinning is evident. This rich infusion of growth factors revitalizes hair follicles, significantly increasing hair density and thickness.

The PRP Procedure

Our specialists ensure a comfortable and safe procedure, which typically takes about an hour. The treatment area is numbed with a local anesthetic, followed by the precise injections of PRP. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and can resume normal activities immediately after the session.

Why Choose PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy is particularly effective for individuals experiencing early signs of hair loss. The benefits of PRP include:

  • Natural stimulation of hair growth
  • Increased hair thickness and density
  • Improvement in scalp health and hair follicles’ vitality

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) for Advanced Hair Restoration

At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Cincinnati, we are at the forefront of non-invasive hair restoration treatments, including Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). This innovative technology uses therapeutic low-level lasers to stimulate hair follicles, promoting regeneration and growth without the need for surgical intervention.

What is LLLT?

Low Level Laser Therapy involves the application of specific wavelengths of light to the scalp. These wavelengths are designed to penetrate the scalp and stimulate the hair follicles, increasing blood circulation and cellular activity to encourage hair growth. LLLT is painless, non-invasive, and does not cause any thermal damage to the tissues.

The LLLT Treatment Experience

Patients undergoing LLLT at our center can expect a relaxing experience. The procedure involves sitting under a device that directs light onto the scalp at regular intervals. Each session lasts approximately 20-30 minutes, and depending on the individual’s response, treatments are typically recommended two to three times a week over several months.

Benefits of LLLT

The therapy is particularly suited for those who are experiencing early stages of hair thinning and loss and can be used in conjunction with other treatments for optimal results. Benefits of LLLT include:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Grafts (FUG): Premier Hair Restoration Techniques

At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Cincinnati, we offer both Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Grafts (FUG) as top-tier solutions for those experiencing significant hair loss. These techniques, led by our expert team under the guidance of Dr. Jon Mendelsohn, utilize the latest in microsurgical technology to deliver precise and natural-looking results.

Understanding FUT and FUG

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also known as the strip method, involves removing a strip of scalp from the donor area at the back of the head, where hair is most resistant to thinning. This strip is then meticulously dissected into individual follicular units under a microscope. Follicular Unit Grafts (FUG) refers to the actual grafts that are obtained during this process, each containing one to four hairs, as they naturally occur on the scalp.

The Combined Procedure

The procedure starts with the extraction of a donor strip during FUT. After removal, the strip is carefully dissected to preserve each follicular unit, which are the FUGs. These units are then strategically transplanted into the balding areas of the scalp. This technique is particularly effective for covering large areas of loss and maximizes hair density while maintaining a natural appearance.

Advantages of FUT and FUG

Natural Appearance: The transplantation of individual follicular units ensures a seamless, natural-looking result.

Efficiency: FUT allows for the transplantation of a large number of grafts in a single session, making it ideal for extensive hair loss.

High Survival Rate: Careful handling of each graft ensures a high survival rate, which translates into successful, long-lasting hair growth.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery

Recovery from FUT and FUG involves minimal discomfort, managed effectively with prescribed pain relief. The linear scar resulting from the strip extraction is typically hidden by existing hair. Patients are given detailed care instructions to ensure optimal healing and hair growth, with most returning to normal activities within a few days.

Why Choose FUT and FUG at Our Center?

Opting for FUT and FUG at our center ensures access to a team of skilled hair restoration specialists. Dr. Mendelsohn’s expertise and our use of sophisticated techniques provide patients with high-quality, durable results. Our approach is tailored to meet individual needs, ensuring that each patient achieves their desired outcome with the most natural and effective solutions available.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): A Minimally Invasive Hair Transplant Technique

At the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Cincinnati, we offer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a highly sophisticated and minimally invasive hair transplant technique. This method is preferred by many patients for its precision and the natural-looking results it delivers.

What is FUE?

Follicular Unit Extraction involves the individual extraction of follicular units directly from the scalp without the need for a linear incision. Using precise micro-punch tools, each unit is harvested from areas of dense hair growth and then transplanted to the thinning or balding regions. This method allows for the selection of the healthiest hair follicles, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the transplant.

The FUE Procedure

The FUE process begins with the shaving of the donor area, allowing our specialists to access and extract each follicular unit with accuracy. The extraction sites heal with small dots, which fade over time and are typically covered by new hair growth. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring comfort throughout the process.

Benefits of FUE

No Linear Scars: FUE does not leave any noticeable scars, making it ideal for patients who prefer to wear their hair short.

Reduced Recovery Time: With no stitches required and minimal postoperative discomfort, the recovery period is shorter compared to traditional methods.

High Precision and Natural Results: The ability to precisely place each hair follicle allows for a natural-looking hairline and hair density.

Post-Procedure Care

After an FUE procedure, patients can usually return to normal activities within a few days. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible healing and hair growth results. Mild swelling and sensitivity may occur but typically subside quickly.

Why Choose FUE at Our Center?

Choosing FUE at our center means receiving care from a team of dedicated experts who use the latest technologies and techniques to ensure optimal results. Our approach is tailored to each patient, focusing on achieving the most natural and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Long-Term Outcomes

The results of an FUE transplant are permanent. New hair growth can be seen as early as three months after the procedure, with the full benefits visible within one year. The transplanted hair behaves like natural hair and can be cut, styled, and dyed.

FUE at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center offers a transformative solution for those seeking to address hair loss without significant downtime or visible scarring. Our team, led by skilled specialists, is dedicated to helping you regain your hair and confidence with cutting-edge solutions.
