Why Get Hair Treatments at the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso?

If you are dealing with hair loss or excessive hair growth, chances are you have tried countless at-home treatments. From shampoos and hair tonics to DIY laser removal and herbal remedies that promise to reverse hirsutism, you may feel like you’ve exhausted every option available. However, these solutions seldom provide any improvement, let alone work to address your problem permanently.

In reality, hair loss and unwanted hair require professional treatments for the best results. Your medical team can help address the underlying cause of your hair loss or excessive hair growth. Common causes include hereditary factors, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune conditions, skin infections and many more.

Once these are addressed, your plastic surgeon can help you decide whether you could also benefit from hair treatments like those offered at the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso.

Hair Restoration

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can affect the scalp, face and any other area of the body. It can come on gradually or appear suddenly, and many people find it quite distressing. The most common type of alopecia is male-pattern baldness, which is hereditary. Other forms include alopecia areata, traction alopecia, telogen effluvium and many others.

If you’re concerned about hair loss on your scalp or face, we offer nonsurgical hair restoration using the SmartGraft™system.

Before SmartGraft™, hair restoration was only possible with surgery. The problem with surgery to restore hair was that it would leave a large, linear scar on the back of the head. But with SmartGraft™, we can now restore your locks nonsurgically by extracting micrografts from a different area of your head and implanting them into balding areas. The micrografts extracted during this method are so small they typically contain only one to four hair follicles.

Compared to surgery, the benefits of choosing SmartGraft™ include:

  • Single in-office procedure — You won’t have to spend much time preparing for this simple, in-office treatment. A typical procedure takes about five hours to provide permanent hair restoration.
  • Natural-looking results — You don’t have to worry about unnatural hairlines and an overall fake look with SmartGraft™. This procedure affords your surgeon great precision thanks to the small size of the micrografts. Even eyebrows can be restored to a natural-looking fullness.
  • Zero to minimal scarring — Traditional hair restoration surgery involved taking large strips of hair from the back of the head, which would leave large scars. This is not the case with SmartGraft™, which completely eliminates the need for a long, linear incision.
  • No downtime — You can return to your usual routine right after this procedure with minimal restrictions. You will only need to avoid washing your scalp for a couple of days post-treatment.


Excessive and unwanted hair growth can affect the face, chest, back, abdomen and virtually any other area of the body. In clinical cases, excessive hair growth can be a result of hormonal imbalances or genetics. In other cases, normal and healthy hair growth can be bothersome for cosmetic reasons.

No matter the reason you are interested in hair reduction, there is an effective way to remove unwanted facial and body hair: LightSheer®DESIRE™ by Lumenis®. This treatment is suitable for reducing hair growth and addressing pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB), also known as razor bumps, as well as for treating vascular and pigmented lesions.

There is no need for anesthesia, and the treatment is typically quick. With high-speed vacuum technology and built-in cooling technology, you will feel comfortable during and after your laser hair removal session. This treatment has been carefully tested through several clinical studies, so you can rest assured that your results will be long-lasting and visible.
