Treatment overview

When it comes to hair transplants, the strip method has stood the test of time due to its safety and proven effectiveness.

This procedure is completely customizable to the patient’s own individual needs, and treatment can transplant a lot of hair in a short amount of time (up to 4,000 to 5,000 grafts can be harvested in a single day.)

This treatment, while effective, does leave a small linear scar in the scalp. However, this scar is thin and can easily be covered up by leaving your hair a little longer.



The strip method can help people who have thinning or balding hair on the scalp, but still enough hair nearby that can be used for a transplant.

For those interested in potential treatment, it’s important to note that it’s better to act sooner rather than later. If there isn’t enough healthy hair to transplant to the thinning area, you may not be eligible for treatment.


Benefits of A Strip Method Hair Transplant in Vernon Hills

  • Strip transplants have been used for many years and it's a method that's proven to bring quality results. The procedure is not only safe, but it can be done right in RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa's Vernon Hills office.
  • The strip method is generally a quicker, more cost-effective alternative to FUE hair transplants.
  • The results from the strip method are completely natural and the healthy tissue on your scalp can help maximize follicle growth.
  • There is little to no pain experienced during or after the procedure. We provide an anesthetic to the scalp to minimize discomfort beforehand and most patients experience little or no discomfort post-procedure.

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including strip harvesting. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Strip Method Procedure

As with any procedure at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we will begin your treatment by ensuring your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.
  • Our providers start by giving patients a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. During this time, you can sit back and relax, or even take a nap. Meanwhile, your provider will extract hair grafts from the back or side of your head and implant them into the balding or thinning areas.



The Recovery

Once the implant is complete, the wound will then be sewed or stapled to get the smallest linear scar possible.

Following the procedure, you can return to work and most activities the next day. However, you should avoid strenuous activity for at least a week following the treatment.

Happy patients


I have been going to Ritacca for several years. In my opinion they are the best in the Chicagoland area. Very professional and caring staff. I live in Orland Park and drive to Vernon Hills to receive services from them!

The RL center was a great before procedure, during procedure and post surgery experience. Entire staff was flexible and professional during my procedure. Bed side manor was terrific from all members of the team. Follow up day was in and out. The last few weeks we have seen an uptick in Covid cases, I felt very safe and secure. Results are great.


Always a professional and high class experience here. I have seen each doctor here and have nothing but great things to say about them.
