People wanting solutions to their hair loss is nothing new and, for thousands of years, wigs were the best solution because – unlike today with ARTAS® – no good treatment options existed. 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

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.

Every 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?
Since the 1990s, microneedling has been known as an anti-aging treatment as well as a treatment for reducing scars.

At RHRLI, our priority is giving you your sense of self back and restoring your confidence. After our patients’ hair transplants, the smiles we see on their faces after their new hair has grown in, is incredibly rewarding.
Still, we understand that it’s a big decision. That’s why we do everything we can to answer all of your questions through every step of the hair restoration process. So, if you’ve been thinking about rejuvenating your thinning hairline but have hesitated to call us to arrange for a free consultation and hair evaluation, take a look at these common questions our happy patients asked while deciding to have the ARTAS® procedure.
Are Hair Restoration Results from ARTAS® Permanent?
Yes! The ARTAS® hair restoration process uses permanent hair from the back and sides of your head, known as donor hair areas, and transplants it to the thinning areas, restoring your hairline. The back and sides of the head are known as “donor hair” sites because those areas are not usually affected by male pattern hair loss, so transplanted hair stays permanently afterwards.
Does the Hair Restoration Process Hurt?
The ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration process is performed under a local anesthetic as an outpatient procedure. Patients feel virtually no pain during the procedure. Afterward, some feel a mild discomfort that is easily addressed by over-the-counter pain reliever. If post-procedure discomfort occurs, it’s usually gone within 1-3 days.
But don’t take our word for it. Listen to what a patient from Stony Brook had to say:
“I would highly recommend anyone thinking of using RHRLI. It was virtually painless, and I couldn’t believe how quickly I was back to my daily routine. Everyone at RHRLI was exceptional. They really care about every part of the process and wanted the best results for me.”
How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Hair Transplant?
Because the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration process doesn’t involve stitches and is minimally invasive, recovery time is very quick. Patients typically go back to their normal activities in just one or two days
How Long Does the Hair Restoration Process Take?
Depending upon how much hair will need to be transplanted, it can take between four and eight hours. Regardless of the length of time for the procedure, our team ensures you are as comfortable as possible the entire time.
As one Long Island patient said,
“The day of the procedure I was welcomed by the incredible staff at RHRLI. We went over the day’s itinerary, and everyone was very accommodating. They attended to any and every question I had, and I had a lot of them. The procedure was smooth, straight-forward, and painless, thanks to the staff and the amazing ARTAS® Robot. Believe it or not, I almost fell asleep! It finished earlier than expected, and I was able to go home right away, without feeling a thing. I was extremely happy with my experience.”

It’s common to feel embarrassment about experiencing hair loss; especially for women. While it’s not as commonly talked about, up to half of all women will experience some form of hair loss during their lifetime. Part of why we don’t hear more about female pattern baldness is because of the lack of high-profile women and female celebrities that are understandably not open about their experiences with it.
