Hair transplantation, one type of hair restoration, has come a long way since its early days. Modern hair transplant techniques date back to Japan in the 1930s, where follicular unit grafts were used to replace damaged eyebrows and eyelashes. Move ahead to the later 1950s where New York dermatologist Norman Orentreich began experimenting with free donor grafts as a method to deal with his patients suffering from male pattern baldness.
Advancements continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s, when stereo microscopes began to be used to separate donor strips into thousands of single follicular units of 1 to 4 hairs each. Today, these microscopic hair transplants are considered to be the “Gold Standard” within the industry, and the type of transplants Hair Club specializes in. Hair Club Medical Group is a network of physicians whose hair transplant practices are managed by Hair Club.
