What causes hair loss?
Hair loss affects more than 80 million Americans — approximately 50 million men and 30 million women. There are many different types and reasons for hair loss; genetics, medications, medical conditions, stress and aging can all cause hair loss. The good news is most of these can be reversed with medical management. Those who are the best candidates for hair transplant have a specific type of hair loss called androgenetic alopecia (also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss). Female pattern hair loss affects approximately 40 precent of women by age 50. For about 25 percent of men, the balding process begins in their 20s and almost 85 percent will experience noticeable hair loss by their 50s.
What are the steps to restoring hair with a hair transplant?
At MD Hair Labs, we use a state-of-the-art robotic hair transplant system that utilizes specialized technology and a robotic arm to precisely extract “donor” hair from your own head. Patients will have a risk-free, no-charge consultation with scalp analysis from our expert physicians. Prep for the hair transplant includes a haircut prior to the procedure by our experienced cosmetologist hair technicians. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is drawn for the procedure and donor hair is robotically harvested. We then transplant the donor hair follicles by hand for the most custom and natural-looking results. Post-op care is provided by physicians and hair technicians — our team will be there for you every step of the way.
What are the criteria to be a good candidate for a hair transplant?
If you are seeking hair restoration due to thinning hair, bald spots and/or a receding hairline, then you could be a candidate for a hair transplant. However, if you’ve lost hair as a result of medication, stress or medical treatment, that hair loss can often be reversed without a robotic transplant. You must have an adequate amount of hair growth or follicles to use for transplantation.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is blood that contains five to 10 times the normal amount of platelets, reversing hair loss and stimulating natural hair growth. MD Hair Labs includes PRP treatments in the hair transplant package as well as a stand-alone treatment for medical management of hair loss. PRP is created by drawing the patient’s blood then separating the platelets by a spinning technique in a centrifuge. We will then carefully and precisely inject the PRP in the prescribed place for hair growth.
How do you utilize the robot for the hair transplant?
MD Hair Labs uses the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System, which is the world’s first intelligent hair transplant platform to utilize state-of-the-art robotic and artificial intelligence technology. This robotic hair transplant machine offers precise, efficient and repeatable harvesting with simultaneous recipient site making and implantation functionalities in a single, compact platform. The robotic platform includes an advanced multi-camera stereoscopic vision system with 44-micron resolution. This system, along with the device’s seven-axis robot arm, enables our physicians to deliver automated procedures with the greatest accuracy. The ARTAS® robotic hair transplant machine is able to intelligently analyze and select the appropriate grafts from the donor area without the risk of linear scarring. By protecting the patient’s existing hair, the ARTAS® robotic hair transplant system works to maintain a more natural appearance in both the donor site and the thinning area where the new hair will be implanted.
