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.
