FUE System

The cost of an ATERA FUE hair restoration procedure is dependent on several aspects. No two hair patterns are exactly the same, so we must consider your hair loss pattern and the extent of hair loss when assessing the cost of hair restoration. 

At Long Island Hair Transplant Center, we offer honest and straightforward hair transplant costs.

FUE, follicular unit extraction, is also known as follicular unit excision. A follicular unit consists of one to three viable hair follicles harvested from an area of vibrant growth, such as the back of the head. These units are gently extracted, kept alive, and transplanted to the area where you need help regrowing your natural hair.

The FUE hair transplant procedure is precise and meticulous. We use the most advanced technology available: ATERA FUE. This digital device scans the landscape of your follicles, selecting the healthiest from your donor site. The ATERA system also identifies the proper placement for your transplanted hair, planting the follicles and giving them a new life at the site where you have balding or thinning hair. 

ATERA FUE is minimally invasive, creating tiny “punch” marks less than a millimeter in diameter. It sounds microscopic, but these grafts can make a big difference in the look and feel of your new hair. Moreover, the ATERA FUE system has variable-size follicles that enable the hair transplant physician to select the right punch for your hair type. The ATERA FUE has larger size punches for curly hair.

Advantages of the ATERA

The unique features and advantages of the ATERA FUE System set it apart from other FUE systems, including the NEOGRAFT, SMARTGRAFT, WAW, Ellis, Cole, S.A.F.E., and other systems. Some of these features include the following: 

  • Grafts stay lubricated from extraction until transplantation.  
  • A separate tubing designed to irrigate and suction grafts keeps them protected from damage, while others have only one tube to do both. 
  • The digital graft counter is visible to the client. 
  • The handpiece is light and causes minimal impact and trauma to the scalp. 
  • Various punch sizes exist for different types of hair (curly, straight, thin, etc.)
  • The system is fast and efficient, enabling the procedure to get completed in less time.

Benefits of Hair Restoration in Long Island

Price Per Graft

Long Island Hair Transplant Center charges on a per-graft basis, which saves you a considerable amount of hard-earned money compared to other hair restoration centers. 

The cost of a hair transplant depends on various factors, such as the extent of hair loss that needs to be treated, the hair transplant technique, the skills and qualifications of the doctor, and the location where you want to get it done. That said, the cost of a hair transplant can range between $6,000 and more than $12,000.

Levels of Hair Care Costs

The severity of your hair loss will determine your hair restoration cost. Dr. Barnard. Dr. Golio, and Clinician Daniels offer effective hair loss solutions to regrow thinning hair that can work within your budget to achieve significant results.

Mild to Moderate Cost: Topical Treatments

If the extent of your hair loss pattern can be treated with topical treatments, Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, or Clinician Daniels may prescribe finasteride, better known by its brand name Propecia. They may also suggest using Minoxidil (Rogaine), proven safe and effective for both women and men.

Comprehensive Care: FUE

When topical creams are insufficient to prevent balding or excessive thinning, Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, or Clinician Daniels will suggest that you take the follicular unit extraction (FUE) path. Even though FUE treatment is more costly than topical solutions, it proves to be more cost-effective in the long run. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) allows your healthy cells to flourish in a new set along the area where you want new hair growth.

Benefits of Hair Restoration in Long Island

Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, and Clinician Daniels obtain outstanding results by focusing on what’s best for their patients. They practice a structured approach to deal with hair loss combining all proven surgical methods and treatment therapies available to them to customize an optimal solution for each patient.

At Long Island Hair Transplant Center, we offer reasonable and competitive pricing methods and offer 0% financing to allow you to easily pay for the procedure. We can minimize or maximize the number of grafts required using the most advanced technology available. One price for FUE procedures allows Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, or Clinician Daniels to use all FUE methods during the procedure to maximize results without any surprises. ATERA FUE streamlines the transplant process, requiring fewer grafts than older, less-efficient techniques.

Eligible Candidates

You are not alone if you are experiencing thinning hair, bald spots, and a receding hairline. According to a recent survey of over 1,500 men, 47% reported they experienced some level of hair loss. In contrast, 70% stated that their hair played an essential role in their self-esteem and self-confidence. 

Women are also viable candidates for hair restoration here at Long Island Hair Transplant Center. If you’re experiencing female pattern baldness, you don’t need to hide away from the fate that the universe has conspired with you. Consider the ATERA FUE System to enhance hair regrowth by restricting the ability of your follicles to decrease hair loss. Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, and Clinician Daniels can determine your eligibility for follicular unit extraction treatment during your comprehensive consultation. 

Private Consultation, Personal Approach

An exclusive meeting with Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, or Clinician Daniels presents an opportunity to benefit from their customized approach to hair restoration. This personal touch is not only beneficial in terms of results, but it also saves you money in the long run. Dr. Barnard or Dr. Golio will attend to your individual needs and ensure you receive the care you require.

Preparation and Procedure

The team of hair transplant experts will provide detailed instructions to prepare you for the ATERA FUE process during the consultation. A clinician will trim the hair on your donor site to prepare it for follicular extraction on the day of your procedure.

The ATERA device keeps your extracted follicles thriving until they are ready to be transplanted to the site of thinning and balding. The automation of our ATERA FUE process keeps costs down and reduces procedure time.

Recovery and Results

There is minimal downtime associated with the ATERA system. You may experience minor redness along with the donor site, but Dr. Barnard, Dr. Golio, or Clinician Daniels will recommend topical products to minimize discomfort. You can get back to work the day after your FUE procedure.
