Dr. Saltzburg and her staff bring a unique, multi-faceted approach to hair restoration; every patient is offered a custom program designed to give you the best results according to your specific hair loss needs, your budget, and timeline.

Nobody ever plans on losing their hair. And yet, for millions of men and women, hair loss is an unavoidable reality. It can begin at an early age, and when it does, it can have a profoundly demoralizing effect. The thought of hair loss may make you feel less youthful or less confident… but there is good news: hair loss doesn’t need to be permanent. There are several options available for hair restoration, including both surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Exciting advances to address hair loss have developed in recent years; allowing many of our patients who were nearly hopeless to enjoy a full head of hair once again. Through hair restoration, you can enjoy results that look completely natural, from your scalp to your hairline. People who see you will simply assume that you have a full head of your own, naturally-growing hair.
Hair restoration techniques have advanced considerably over the past few decades and the solutions we offer at Luminary Cosmetic & Hair Restoration are available with minimal or no scarring and little to no down time. We will work together with you to ensure a solution that addresses your current level of hair loss, your aesthetic goals, your comfort level, and even your budget.
HAIR TRANSPLANT SYSTEM
Board-certified physician Dr. Lauren Saltzburg is at the forefront of both surgical and non-surgical hair restoration. Using only the most proven, cutting-edge techniques for hair replacement for both male and female pattern hair loss, Luminary Hair Restoration treatments ensure a natural, youthful and aesthetically balanced result— without uncomfortable or embarrassing side effects.
For surgical hair transplantation, Dr. Saltzburg primarily utilizes the NeoGraft FUE (follicular unit extraction) surgical robotic device, which allows extraction of individual hair follicles from fuller hair areas, such as the back of the head, to be permanently transplanted to thinning or balding areas.
FUE hair transplantation is a minimally invasive, advanced procedure that has really changed the way hair transplants are done today. Hair follicle grafts are individually removed from healthy growth areas that are naturally resistant to loss, such as along the sides and the back of the head. These individual follicles are then moved to restore a natural, aesthetically pleasing hairline and to fill in balding spots if needed. The precise technology of the NeoGraft FUE system ensures nearly every transplanted follicle (94%!) “takes” to its new spot and continues to grow. Of course the expertise of an experienced hair transplant surgeon and hair technology team is a “must” for ensuring the viability of the follicles and aesthetically pleasing results. The new transplanted hairs are genetically resistant to loss, ensuring a lasting result.
In FUT surgery, an experienced hair surgeon cuts a strip of skin from the back or side of your head and extracts individual hair follicles. These follicles are then inserted into the balding parts of your scalp. The surgery works best at covering a receding hairline caused by male pattern baldness. With Follicular Unit Transplantation, a strip of tissue is removed from the donor area. The hairs are then harvested from the follicles and placed wherever your hair needs thickening. After the donor strip has been removed, the incision is carefully sutured closed. Once the area heals, you will be left with only a very fine linear scar that is virtually undetectable after the surrounding hair grows out.
Lasers have been revolutionary in modern medicine and this includes their use in hair restoration. While many laser options are sold online that are marketed for hair restoration, these over the counter options contain just a small fraction of the laser power that’s needed to get real results in stimulating healthy hair growth and preservation. For some patients, Dr. Saltzburg prescribes a medical grade laser treatment cap that is comfortable and easy to use at home.
For optimal results, nutrition is important for healthy hair growth. Dr. Saltzburg may prescribe nutritional supplements that are specifically designed to mitigate harmful stress hormones, improve your sleep and boost specific nutrients that are necessary for your body to grow healthy hair.
Dr. Saltzburg may also prescribe specific topical treatments as part of your hair replacement regimen. These may include specific topical medications, shampoos, lotions or other prescribed products.

I highly recommend both Luminary and FUE hair transplantation. My care there was outstanding. My hairline has been receding, along with thinning areas around the sides and crown, for a while now. I decided to do something about it and after researching my options, was impressed with advances in FUE hair transplants. I consulted with a few doctors and chose Dr. Saltzburg and Hunter Yard because I was impressed from the get-go. Their expertise was obvious, along with their willingness to take the take time to follow up and answer questions. The actual surgery was remarkably smooth and I was impressed with the time and effort they took to harvest every hair follicle and transplant them. After 2 months, I’m already thrilled with the results and I expect to see continued hair regrowth over the next year.
I had an extremely positive experience with Luminary Hair Restoration!
After months of research, and after visiting another Hair Restoration doctor who I was not happy with, I decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saltzburg. I was immediately impressed with Luminary’s immaculate, beautiful facility and with the warm reception.
Hunter Yard provided the initial detailed overview, where I was able to ask all my questions and concerns and provide my history. He immediately made me feel at ease with his down to earth style and attention to detail.
I then met Dr. Saltzburg, who gave me an overview of all of my options, with no pressure whatsoever and made me feel very confident in the potential results for my hair loss replacement. I decided to schedule my NeoGraft FUE procedure.
Post procedure, I can’t say enough how happy I am with the results. My hair replacement has been very natural looking yet has resulted in a significant improvement in my appearance and confidence. My girlfriend is very happy with the results too! Dr. Saltzburg and the team at Luminary Hair Restoration exhibited the utmost professionalism and I give my highest recommendations to anyone interested in hair replacement.
If I had known what kind of results I would get through hair transplantation with Dr. Saltzburg, I would have done it years ago. I suffered for years, from a pretty young age, with a significant receding hairline. It really bothered me, but it didn’t seem like I could do much about it.
A good friend strongly recommended I see Dr. Saltzburg, and I’m thrilled with the results. The procedure itself was not a big deal at all and downtime was minimal. I feel so much more confident about my appearance and I would do this again, 100%. Needless to say, my girlfriend is also thrilled with the results.
Can’t recommend Dr. Saltzburg and her team at Luminary highly enough. Two thumbs up.
