There’s no getting around it. We worry about our hair constantly. We worry about how it looks. Is it too long or too short? We wonder if we’re wearing the right hairstyle. We fret about hair products we use. And if you think your hair might be thinning, most people begin to get really concerned. We hear all sorts of stories about hair loss and very often it’s difficult to determine what’s true and what isn’t. RHRLI knows it’s important for our patients to understand the truth about their hair loss.
Androgenetic alopecia or patterned baldness can occur in males and females. Hair loss occurs when androgenic hormones cause the hair follicle to shrink in size causing thinning hair or even preventing the hair to grow. Although it affects both genders, where it affects the scalp differs. In men hair loss occurs at the temples, thinning of the hairline as well as balding on the crown of the head. Women on the other hand tend to suffer from hair loss throughout the scalp. For more information on patterned baldness in men and women, please read through some of our blogs below.

If you’re losing your hair, it’s quite possible that you may have looked at yourself in the mirror and asked, “How did I get to this point?” Hair loss is something that happens slowly and progressively. You see the results in front of you, but you may be wondering whether your progression is normal and how and why people lose their hair in the first place. At RHRLI, we make it a point to spend time with our patients so they understand their hair loss and treatment and we also have the best permanent solution available. We want to tell you about this solution and about the evolution of your hair loss.
There are a lot of things that go through a patient’s mind when they’re losing their hair. One question they often ask themselves and ask us here at RHRLI is, “Why?” Patients want to know what causes their hair loss and they also want to know what kind of permanent solution they can find. When you’re looking at causes of hair loss, you’ve probably heard mention of hormones. Hormones can affect hair loss, but the involvement of hormones in the most common cause of hair loss is a little bit complicated.
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 extraction (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.
You see the signs every time you look in the mirror. You’re losing your hair. While we all lose hair as part of the natural hair growth cycle, if your hair loss is becoming noticeable, it could mean you may benefit from a hair transplant. Your hair loss may be farther along and you could already know that a hair transplant is a strong possibility. If you’re thinking you might want a hair transplant, you need information about what lies ahead. RHRLI wants to give you that information and wants to tell you about our hair transplant that can be a permanent solution to your hair loss.
There’s one thing common to all of humanity. Every single one of us is aging.

At RHRLI, we know our patients want to know as much as they can about what causes hair loss.
You’ve probably read or heard a lot about the causes of hair loss and thinning hair or what factors may play into those causes. One topic much discussed in connection with hair loss is testosterone.
