However, wigs were also a fashion statement during certain points in history, such as the period depicted in the hit musical Hamilton. [Read more…] about Hamilton and The History of The Wig

Blonde Hair And Hair Loss

Is blonde hair different?Natural blondes are hard to come by. In fact, only about 2% of the global population is blonde. That is in large part because blonde hair originated from a genetic mutation more than 10,000 years ago and is connected to a recessive gene. Some false reports have claimed that blondes will be extinct by the 23rd century, but recessive genes don’t just disappear so expect blondes to stick around for many centuries to come.

presidents with hair loss on postage stampsEvery time a presidential race comes along, “electability” becomes a topic of conversation. The much-repeated conventional wisdom is that candidates with hair loss do not win. In reality, the topic of baldness and politicians is more complicated – and the effect of baldness and elections even more so. The short answer is that they are not less electable… but that perception could make being elected a bit harder. [Read more…] about Are Bald Men Less Electable?

Hair Transplants with ARTAS®

As a board-certified surgeon, my goal is always to create the best results for my patients. I chose the ARTAS® System because its advanced robotic technology allows me to perform minimally invasive hair transplants with follicle-by-follicle precision.

The RHRLI Edge: Benefits of ARTAS® Hair Transplants

Let’s start with the benefits of the ARTAS® System and what sets us apart here at RHRLI.

  • We use the most advanced hair transplantation technology

So, what makes the ARTAS® System so advanced? Simple. The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System provides digital technology that allows us to more accurately and consistently harvest and transplant your hair. Selecting and transplanting donor hair follicle by follicle ensures a natural hairline and faster healing. The high-resolution digital imaging provides real-time analysis to more accurately map out and analyze the natural hair groupings.

  • Our procedures do not require incisions and do not leave linear scars

Does the hair transplant procedure hurt? The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant is an outpatient procedure that requires only a local anesthetic. During the procedure, you will feel virtually no pain. After the procedure, over-the-counter medication is more than sufficient if any discomfort occurs. Because the ARTAS® Robot implants individual hairs, scarring is minimal whereas traditional hair surgery involves a linear scar.

  • Our procedures result in fast recovery time

How quick is the hair transplant surgery recovery time? No time at all. You’ll recover extremely fast because the ARTAS® procedure is minimally invasive. Patients can usually resume their normal activities in 1 to 2 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Long Does the Hair Transplant Take?

Depending on how much hair you are having transplanted, the procedure typically takes 4 to 8 hours.

  • When Can I Expect the New Hair to Start Growing In?

New hair will begin to appear at three months. At about six months, you will see significant improvement in your hair growth, and after a year, the final results should be evident.

  • Will people notice that I’ve had a hair restoration procedure?

Since the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant System does not create a linear scar, and the new hair grows in gradually, it’s much less likely that people will realize you had a hair restoration procedure than with other previous methods like Follicle Unit Transplantation (FUT). If anything, people will notice that your appearance is more youthful.
