Procedure Promises Natural-Looking Outcomes, Little Downtime

According to Vision Medical, Inc., SmartGraft®, they offer a minimally invasive hair restoration treatment, that now makes hair replacement an accessible, effective and realistic option for women that can deliver natural-looking outcomes with very little downtime.

Mistakenly thought of as a male issue, 40 percent of hairloss sufferers are actually women.1 For many women, hair is a huge part of who they are, and that makes hairloss a big deal and major confidence killer. When women begin to lose hair, the psychological damage can be just as devastating as any serious disease, taking an emotional toll that can directly affect physical and mental health.

Aging is a common culprit, responsible for female pattern hair loss, but hormonal changes, stress, major life events like childbirth, diet, bleaching and styling can all contribute to hairloss earlier in life. Statistics show that 12 percent of women will have experienced abnormal hair loss by age 30.2

Ashunta Sheriff was one of them. The Celebrity Makeup Artist and the mastermind behind Taraji P. Henson’s famous red carpet and Empire looks, Ashunta began losing her hair due to traction alopecia – a result of wearing her hair in braids, dreads and other tight styles that weakened hair around the hairline.

Tired of having to hide her hair loss, Ashunta sought the help of New Jersey Plastic Surgeon Dr. Barry DiBernardo, who recommended SmartGraft, a minimally invasive and permanent hair restoration solution favored by women due to its quickness, comfort and natural-looking outcomes that leaves no visible scar.

Dr. DiBernardo, highlights: “SmartGraft is innovative in the hair transplant device world because of a multitude of improvements.”  He went on to say, “SmartGraft uses the industry’s first closed harvesting system, which harvests grafts safely, efficiently and with virtually no discomfort.”

Traditional hair transplant procedures, called strip harvesting, require surgeons to cut a portion of the scalp from the back of the head. This causes pain, large scar and requires six to eight weeks recovery time. SmartGraft has markedly less  downtime and scars associated with traditional hair transplant.

“If you’ve been covering and hiding and wearing wigs and weaves, but you want to wear your own hair out, think about SmartGraft,” says Ashunta “It’s great for African American hair texture and the procedure has minimal downtime. I was back at work within days.”
