“Automated Follicular Unit Extraction has proven to be one of the biggest developments in the history of modern non-surgical hair restoration. The ability to perform hundreds, if not thousands, of grafts within a session of one day without the need for a linear scar is nothing short of monumental.” – Dr. Wise

The Wise Institute Way
Dr. Wise is committed to producing the most aesthetically pleasing and technically advanced results with his FUE hair transplant procedure. While this procedure is non-invasive, together we review the necessary preparation to ensure you receive optimal treatment and recovery time.
Based on his years of experience in the hair restoration field, Dr. Wise has custom designed a modified NeoGraft technique to remove the balding resistant hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The back and sides of the head are the ideal donor sites due to the healthier hair follicles in these areas and because they are immune to dihydrotestosterone (also known as DHT – a hormone that kills hair follicles). Always utilizing state-of-the-art work, Dr. Wise’s method was developed to ensure the highest percentage of hair re-growth in the transplanted follicles. FUE requires no scalpel incision, allowing for essentially no detectable donor site scarring.
Hair Loss Help
Once extracted, the hair follicles are transplanted to the recipient site where hair loss or balding is present. Grafting sessions are intended to replace lost hair or thicken a thinning hairline. Follicular units are placed hair-by-hair where re-growth is desired. FUE is the least invasive of hair restoration procedures.
Given his extensive training and experience in Facial Plastic Surgery and Platelet Rich Plasma, Dr. Wise’s patients value his unique aesthetic background in the hair restoration field, resulting in the most natural appearing results that are in harmony with the rest of the face. With his exclusive expertise, Dr. Wise is able to offer combined facial aesthetic surgery and hair restoration procedures for those patients seeking more improvement in appearance right in his convenient office location in Passaic County just outside New York City.
Non-Surgical Hair Restoration
In addition to utilizing the FUE technique to provide outstanding hair restoration results, Dr. Wise utilizes his FUE method for use in the repair of prior outdated or unaesthetic transplants. While Dr. Wise has primarily seen mostly male patients in the past, Dr. Wise has enjoyed also being recognized for his focus on and treatment of hair loss in women. Dr. Wise is also an expert in beard and eyebrow transplants, as well as body hair transplants.

Following hair transplantation, The Wise Institute also offers 4 complimentary sessions of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) facility. Dr. Wise finds that these treatments accelerate the healing process, as well as the growth of newly transplanted hair. Gentle on the recently transplanted hair, and non-surgical, LLLT uses red, blue and near infrared wavelengths to facilitate hair growth for individuals who have undergone any hair restoration procedure. This non-invasive, painless therapy stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the scalp, promoting a healthier scalp and contributing to the healing process.
Every transplant procedure experiences some post-operative hair loss from shedding and the trauma of the surgery. At the Wise Institute, we provide ATPv solution to our patients to bring home with them immediately following the procedure. ATPv provides energy to the follicles during that critical 3-5 day period between the time they are harvested until they complete their reconnection to the scalps blood supply.
What is ATPv?
ATPv is a patented formulation of adensosine triphosphate (ATP) encapsulated within nanometer-sized liposomes. ATP itself is the universal energy molecule for all living cells. The ATPv formulation allows cells to obtain ATP directly, even if they are isolated from blood or energy supply. The hair follicles that were harvested and transplanted into healthy scalp tissue must survive another 3-5 days while they connect to the scalp’s blood/oxygen supply which is why the Wise Center sends their patients home with the solution post-operation.
Hair typically begins to grow back on the recipient sites within 3-4 months, looking natural and dense. Depending on the patient, recovery times vary, but are commonly fast. Follow-up procedures can be easily performed with the FUE technique because additional incisions are not required. The Wise Institute also offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy, a non-surgical treatment option, combined with ACell to stimulate and increase blood flow to the head, in turn helping hair follicles grow healthily and quickly and is the only practice in Morris County and other areas of Northern New Jersey to offer the purest form of PRP which produces the highest quality results.
Compare FUE To: FUT or Follicular Unit Transplantation. The main distinction between the two methods is the manner in which the hair follicles are extracted. FUT known as the “Strip Method” utilizes a linear piece of the scalp removed from the backside of the head to restore hair in balding areas rather than the graft by graft extraction technique used in FUE. While FUE is the least invasive option in hair restoration procedures, FUT is a surgical procedure that has other benefits.
