Welcome

To maximize the time you’ll get to spend with your doctor, we’re asking you to come to the consultation prepared. Check out the information provided below so you can get to know our team and the practice, take a virtual tour of the office, and read more about the treatments we offer. While we’re always happy to provide patient education, reviewing these basics ahead of time means you’ll get to spend more time discussing your specific situation with the doctor and creating a plan to address your concerns.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 mitigation efforts, we are not hosting in-person consultations. Until we can invite you back to the office, check out our video tour:


Learn about Hair Loss

Hair loss is common across all races and cultures. It affects over 60% of men and over 40% of women. Many patients come to our center looking to “take care” of their hair loss. They seek to have a surgery or take a medication that will put balding and hair loss “behind them.” This type of thinking is perfectly reasonable for many types of cosmetic surgery, but hair loss is unfortunately different. It is a permanent and progressive condition, like tooth decay. (Check the sidebar for an article Dr. Anderson wrote for the ISHRS medical journal.) No one would expect their dentist to do a procedure that would allow you to never brush your teeth again. That doesn’t make any sense, does it? The same goes for hair loss. It is important to remember that there is no cure for hair loss. Genetic balding is a progressive, life-long process; therefore, the initial surgical plan must consider future hair loss. Unless you’re over about 65 and have lost the majority of the hair you’re going to lose, it is important to take action to prevent further hair loss by using medical therapies. This will help to preserve the results of your hair restoration surgery for as long as possible.

The importance of medical therapy is to maintain the current state of your hair, slow the hair loss process, and possibly add thickness to your existing hair. A hair restoration surgery is unique in that it does nothing to affect the underlying process that caused the need for the surgery in the first place. Hair restoration surgery will not cure or stop your hair loss. It simply involves rearranging the hair that remains on your head. As such, prevention of future hair loss can be as important as the actual surgery that replaces what has been lost. Although the hairs we will transplant for you during a hair restoration surgery will be permanent, the hairs originally in the area or that are native will continue to succumb to the effects of DHT and thin. If you do no preventative or maintenance therapies you will not have the best possible results you could have from your surgery.

Both slowing the progression of hair loss, and the thickening of existing hairs are considered treatment successes, as without the medications and LLLT the hair loss is virtually certain to proceed much faster than with these medical therapies. It is for this reason that medical therapies are always a part of the treatment of hair loss, even if you desire hair restoration surgery. In our opinion, it is rarely ethical to discuss a hair restoration surgery without discussing preventive measures to slow the existing rate of hair loss.

In the case of surgical treatment, unchecked and continued hair loss will cause gaps to form between the transplanted area and the receding natural hair in the area. The use of medications will help delay the need for additional surgery, sometimes by as much as 15 years.

Surgical Options for hair loss from award winning doctors

FUE

The ARTAS® and ARTAS iX® Robotic Hair Restoration Systems are state-of-the-art surgical tools that our surgeons use to perform Follicular Unit Excision (FUE). Using complex software algorithms and stereoscopic surgical cameras, the ARTAS® System harvests grafts for transplant with micron level precision while minimizing disruption to the surrounding skin, and preserving the natural look of your donor area.

This method allows hair to be removed for transplantation from the donor area without using a scalpel, requires no sutures, and creates no linear scar whatsoever. Even after an ARTAS® procedure, you can wear very short hairstyles, which is a well-known limitation of the traditional linear strip procedure.

Medical Therapies for hair loss from award winning medical staff

PRP

Your blood contains life-giving, growth and healing factors. We are able to draw a small amount of blood and isolate the red blood cells from the platelets and plasma. The resulting Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is then injected just below the scalp surface in the areas of need. After 6 rounds of injections spaced 6 weeks apart, approximately 55% of patients under the age of 35 see some hair re-growth. For maintenance purposes, PRP injections are recommended 2-3 times per year, which amounts to every 4-6 months, ongoing. The recommended frequency and expected goals of these treatments vary patient to patient. Your surgeon can explain what a realistic expectation for your specific situation would be with these treatments.
