If you’re looking for a solution to your hair loss or thinning hair, you’ve probably heard about a number of different treatments and procedures. There’s so much out there it likely seems confusing. Hair transplants in particular can leave your head spinning and you may have heard about two types of hair transplants with similar sounding names and initials. They are Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). These two procedures may sound alike, but they’re actually very different.
Patients looking for a permanent solution to hair loss and thinning hair are very often focused on results, but not necessarily the best results. Hair loss is difficult and can affect things such as self esteem. Very often patients look at some types of transplants as something they want right away without considering all the options.
At RHRLI, we’re proud to offer the most state of the art treatment available for hair loss and thinning hair. It’s called the ARTAS® System and it uses robotic technology to transplant healthy donor hairs to where they’re needed. The precision of the ARTAS® System gives those looking for a permanent solution to hair loss a healthy head of hair. But ARTAS® is relatively new technology and we know some patients who’ve had other types of transplants and are still dealing with a number of the effects of the procedure.
It’s a popular topic on gossip and entertainment news sites: Which big star might be losing his or her hair and which celebrities may have received hair transplants? Web sites such as Buzzfeed post before and after photos of celebrities they’ve suspected of having transplant procedures. British tabloids publish stories about the latest star to have a transplant. We hear speculation that A-listers like Matthew McConaughey, John Travolta, and Kim Kardashian may have received hair transplants. News involving the rich and famous almost always build an audience, and paparazzi photos pick up every change in a celebrity’s appearance.
If you’re seeking treatment for hair loss or thinning hair, you’ve probably looked at a number of options.
