Trust Your Hair Restoration to an Experienced Professional
James Harris, M.D. has been a licensed physician since 1989. He is a local Greenwood Village Colorado Hair Restoration Surgeon as well as a Diplomate with the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and a Fellow with the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery and American College of Surgeons.
Dr. Harris retains membership with the American Academy of Otolarynology as well and is well-known around the world for his innovation in the field of hair restoration.
One of Dr. Harris’ greatest professional accomplishments is the patented Harris S.A.F.E. method, which stands for Surgically Advanced Follicular Extraction.
This system enables Hair Restoration Doctors who use Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to minimize follicle damage while obtaining the highest quality hair grafts at the same time. In addition, James Harris, M.D. was the lead consulting physician on the development and implementation of the ARTAS robot. With the assistance of a computer, ARTAS uses an algorithm and image-based system to select and extract the best follicular units for transplant.
In addition to research, development, and work with patients, Dr. Harris is also an educator and published author in the field of hair restoration. He earned the Golden Follicle Award in 2014 due to his significant contributions. Dr. Harris teaches transplantation techniques to other Hair Loss Specialists from around the world. In 2015, he taught surgeons as far away as Bangkok and as close as Chicago.
- Surgical Hair Restoration Services
Dr. Harris and his team perform both Follicular Unit Extraction and Follicular Unit Transplantation at our Greenwood Village location. These are surgical procedures that extract your own hair from areas that typically resist balding and transplant them to the balding areas. The major difference between the two procedures is the manner in which follicles are extracted. The FUE procedure also includes the option of using ARTAS and/or the Harris S.A.F.E. method. The FUT method, also called strip surgery, obtains hair follicles from a wider circumference on the scalp.

ACell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
ACell Hair Re-Growth Therapy, combined with Platelet Rich Plasma, stimulates the growth of new hair follicles over the course of several sessions lasting approximately 90 minutes each. Dr. Harris obtains a small sample of your blood and places it in a centrifuge to remove the platelets that contain restorative growth factors. After mixing the platelets with fillers, Dr. Harris injects them into your scalp and uses a laser to help the platelets reach the cellular level.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Called LLLT for short, this non-surgical procedure also helps to stimulate the growth of new hair follicles. As the light energy reaches the scalp, it increases cellular metabolism, oxygen, and blood circulation in the follicles. It is most appropriate as an early intervention for men and women who are just starting to notice hair loss. Dr. Harris provides several sessions of LLLT, with each lasting approximately half an hour.
At Hair Sciences Center of Colorado, we understand that every patient experiencing hair loss is unique and deserves a tailored approach to hair restoration. We invite you to contact us today to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Harris.
