There are a few things that are more personal than undergoing a medical procedure and if the procedure is a hair transplant, that can be as personal as it gets. At RHRLI, we know you’re going to be somewhat apprehensive about your hair restoration procedure which is why we’re committed to creating the most comfortable patient experience you can find. It’s also why we’re proud to be the only hair loss treatment center on Long Island that carries the ARTAS® System, our state-of-the-art, minimally invasive solution to hair loss. It’s all part of The RHRLI Edge. We want you to understand why we’re the area’s top choice for hair restoration.
Losing your hair can be overwhelming at times. It’s difficult because hair is connected to youth, physical appearance, and self-esteem. If the negative feelings that hair loss brings up aren’t enough of a problem, considering what to do about it can be just as stressful. Everywhere you look, it seems like someone is touting a treatment or cure for thinning hair so it’s hard to sort through what’s effective and what isn’t.
You see them everywhere. They are in your email inbox and in advertisements placed on the back of magazines. They are even on late night television ads. It seems like everyone is pitching treatments for hair loss. Some involve medical procedures and some involve the use of medications. Some medications are legitimate, while some are totally worthless. But there’s so much noise out there, it’s hard to tell what works and what doesn’t.
At RHRLI, we’re very proud of the permanent solution we provide for hair loss. It’s called the ARTAS® System and it is the most precise hair transplant procedure you can find on the market. But some patients do need to explore other options. Some patients are unable to undergo a full hair transplant because they don’t have enough donor hair. They may also have a heavily scarred area of their scalp that needs to be covered up. If you have areas where you’ve lost hair and it’s unable to grow back, RHRLI can help with a procedure called Scalp Micropigmentation.
If you’re losing your hair, you’ve probably heard lots of stories and myths about what causes you to lose hair. Some things aren’t true, like the idea that wearing a hat is responsible for hair loss. Some of them are true. For example, there are medications that are used to treat hair loss. There’s a lot of treatments out there and at RHRLI we offer the ARTAS® system, which we feel is the best solution on the market. But you may have also heard that head massage also helps stop hair loss. At RHRLI, we want patients to have the correct information about their options, so we want to examine the relationship between hair loss and head massage.
