Looking back, it is our pleasure to present our most-read articles from 2014. From breaking research to new studies published by our Institute’s lead surgeons, this “best of” list provides an overview of what our Institute has been up to, and where we’re heading in 2015.

Top 8 Articles from 2015

  1. Drs. Nusbaum and Rose Published in The Clinics. Providing expert insight on emerging technologies and procedures, “The Clinics” is known throughout the medical community as an expert reference and quarterly publication. In January 2014, Drs. Nusbaum and Rose were featured in the publication, providing insight on the latest hair loss treatments, including low level laser therapy (LLLT), platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and robotic follicular unit extraction (FUE).
  2. Low Level Laser Therapy Proves Successful in Reversing Hair Loss. LLLT devices have grown in popularity in recent years, with men and women from around the world trying these new at-home “laser hair restoration” products. Until 2014, however, very little was known about products’ efficacy. That changed earlier this year, when this study showed a popular LLLT device capable of generating new hair growth of about 20 hairs/square centimeter of scalp.
  3. Hair Transplants Increase 85% Worldwide. This past year marked an excited milestone for hair transplant surgery as well. In a report published by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), stats show that the number of hair transplant procedures performed worldwide grew by 85% from 2004 to 2014.
  4. Thinking About Robotic FUE? Robotic follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplants have also gained a lot of positive media attention this year, and it’s not hard to see why. This new approach to hair transplant is more consistent, accurate, minimally invasive, and virtually scar-free. This past year, our Institute hit a milestone when we reached an extraction rate of more than 850 grafts/hour with the new ARTAS System by Restoration Robotics, an achievement that demonstrates both the popularity of robotic FUE and our proficiency with the new technology.
  5. Dr. Rose Elected Treasurer of Cosmetic Surgery Foundation. One of the best things about our surgeons and staff is their unparalleled commitment to study, research, and refine hair loss technologies and procedures. Lead surgeon Dr. Paul Rose is involved in many organizations outside of the Hair Transplant Institute, including the Cosmetic Surgery Foundation. This past year, we congratulated Dr. Rose on his election to the board as Treasurer for CSF!
  6. Tips for Healthier Hair. Of course, it wouldn’t be a “best of” list without at least one article on how to improve hair health. This year, our most popular article on healthier hair also happens to be one of the simplest. Visit this article for 3 easy tips on keeping hair strong and healthy through 2015.
  7. The Future of ARTAS Hair Restoration. ARTAS is the leading robotic FUE technology, providing surgeons with an advanced method for conducting a hair transplant procedure with greater accuracy and precision. Today, the technology helps surgeons identify and extract donor hair that show the best signs of surviving and thriving afterward. In the near future, the technology may soon be able to assist with preparing the “recipient area” where donor follicles are placed. Read more about the future of ARTAS technology in this exclusive article.
  8. Discovery of New Stem Cells May Hold Future Hair Loss Cure. Stem cells have long been researched as a potential cure for hair loss. In early December, a research team from the University of Calgary announced that cells have been identified that might potentially take researchers one step closer to that dream. Visit this article to learn more about Dr. Jeff Biernaskie, and the discovery that he hopes will some day help hair restoration professionals create an “on/off” switch for hair follicles.

7 Shocking Stats About Hair Loss

For most men and women, just the thought of losing hair stirs immense feelings of fear and anxiety. But are those feelings warranted? A look at these 7 shocking hair loss statistics says yes, perhaps they are.

To illustrate: Did you know that about 50 million American men and women suffer with hair loss? Of those affected, would you ever imagine that 47% say they are willing to trade their life savings to regain their hair?

Take a moment to review the hair loss statistics below, and tell us what you think in the Comments section at the bottom of the page. For additional statistics related specifically to hair transplant, visit this list of ISHRS hair loss statistics.

Hair Loss Statistics

50-100: The number of hairs the average person loses each day.

Many men and women are surprised to learn that hair loss is technically always occurring. This is because hair grows in 3 stages: Anagen, categen, and telogen. In the telogen phase, growth ceases and the strand of hair falls from the follicle. That’s why the average person loses anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair each day, according to statistics gathered by the American Hair Loss Association.

35 million: Number of men in the United States who suffer with hair loss.

Hair loss disproportionately affects men, amounting to about 35 million cases in the U.S. alone. Of those affected, about 40% will show visible signs of hair loss by age 35. These signs are illustrated in the Norwood Classification, a diagram that shows the typical progression of pattern baldness.

21 million: Number of women in the United States who suffer with hair loss.

Although hair loss is more common among males than females, women still experience it at an alarmingly high rate. Moreover, hair loss affects women differently than men. The Ludwig Classification illustrates how female pattern baldness progresses in a more diffuse manner, making it much more difficult to detect and treat early.

85%: Percentage of male hair loss sufferers who use a topical foam treatment, like Rogaine®.

Minoxidil, better known by the brand name Rogaine®, is one of the most widely used non-surgical hair loss treatments. The topical foam is applied to the scalp daily, and it has shown tremendous effectiveness in helping hair loss sufferers keep their existing hair.

47%: Percentage of men and women who would trade their life savings for a new, full head hair.

Even in turbulent world economy, nearly half of all hair loss sufferers admit they would trade their life savings for a new, full head of hair. In a study conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), more than 60% of respondents said they believed a new head of hair would translate to career advancement and higher earnings (i).

60%: Percentage of men and women who would choose a new head of hair over more money or friends.

This statistics further illustrates the desperation felt by individuals who suffer with hair loss, demonstrating a markedly higher desire for more hair over new friends and/or more money.

1 in 3: Number of men and women who would abstain from sex for life, if it meant a new head of hair.

This sobering statistic really puts things into perspective. More than 30% of men and women who suffer with hair loss say they are willing to give up sex for the rest of their lives in order to regain the hair of their youth.

85%: Percentage of people who cannot recognize a hair transplant procedure.

Surgical hair restoration has come a long way. Today’s hair transplant procedures are faster, more precise, and more comfortable than ever before. Best of all, they produce a result that is so natural in appearance that over 85% of people cannot tell when a hair transplant has been performed (ii).
