While people generally think of hair loss as a problem for older people, it can also affect adolescents. As with any other form of hair loss, a medical evaluation is recommended to determine if it’s due to an underlying health condition, stress, genetics, etc.
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.
There are many ways people lose hair, and there’s many types of treatments for hair loss or thinning hair. At RHRLI we offer a permanent solution for conditions like androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern hair loss, called the ARTAS® System. It’s a Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) which uses robotic technology to give you minimally invasive hair transplants. Some people seek other more invasive transplants, while others seek treatment to cover up thinning hair. You may have heard of treatments such as scalp micropigmentation and microblading and wonder what they’re about.
If you have been suffering from hair loss you’ve probably heard all sorts of tales about ways to stimulate hair growth. You’ve likely heard about oils, mixtures and all sorts of home remedies. RHRLI knows you may be very confused by all of this. One remedy for hair loss that most people have heard proposed a lot over time involves head massage. There are those who swear that frequent head massage will stimulate hair growth. But is this true or is this a myth?
It’s considered one of the cutting-edge areas in scientific research and it touches on so many different areas of study. Stem cell research has made breakthroughs in fields such as cancer and cardiac care and it’s starting to become a significant factor in the battle against hair loss and thinning hair. There have been several studies that have looked into the relationship stem cells have to hair growth and a recent study has given hope that stem cells can in fact grow hair.
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.
