Dr. U Hair and Skin Clinic offers the Dr.UGraft™ FUE Hair Transplant System for an intelligent hair punch service. The Dr.UGraft™ procedure, pioneered by Dr. Umar (aka Dr. U), is ideal for patients who want a minimally-invasive treatment that requires no scalpel, strip surgery or stitches.
Dr.UGraft™ has earned patents from the US and European patent offices. Because the Dr.UGraft™ Hair Transplant System allows for the use of body hair ( Body hair transplant – BHT ), the number of transplantable hairs is greatly increased.
Dr. Umar is also very familiar with the difficulties of transplanting tightly curled Afro-textured hair. In order to overcome this challenge, Dr. Umar developed a unique, manual FUE device called the Dr.UPunch Curl ™, which overcame the difficulties faced by ordinary FUE processes when it comes to individuals with tightly curled Afro-textured hair.
Dr. Umar has successfully performed FUE hair restoration for women, and body hair transplant for severe repair cases or cases in which the head donor area must be conserved. Women frequently experience hair loss, especially as they age. With social and cultural definitions of hair and beauty, female pattern baldness is a devastating condition. Traction alopecia, lupus, and trichotillomania are additional causes of permanent hair loss commonly seen in women. Hair transplant is no less a treatment option for women than it is for men.
Eyebrow and eyelash hair transplant have also become more popular cosmetic procedures with FUE. The minimally invasive nature of FUE, combined with the smaller, flatter donor wound healing with the Dr.UGraft™ System make this procedure an ideal alternative to cosmetic products. Furthermore, the ability to use fine hair from the body for this procedure enables the creation of more natural-looking and low-maintenance results. Dr. U has innovated and advanced the procedure to unprecedented heights. His work using eyebrow restoration has been featured on Good Morning America and published in highly regarded peer reviewed medical Journals including Dermatological Surgery and the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
In addition to surgical hair restoration, Dr. U Hair and Skin also offers other dermatological services and products like Latisse, Minoxidil, and Propecia.
Dr. Sanusi Umar is certified by the American Board of Dermatology. He also completed a fellowship training in cosmetic surgery under the direction of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. As a pioneer in FUE hair surgery, he is widely published and recognized for his work on Afro-textured hair.
