When Superfoods Aren’t Enough

A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants has been proven to naturally improve the appearance of hair, skin, and nails. For some individuals, however, eating well is not enough. Whether predisposed to hereditary (genetic) hair loss or suffering from stress-induced telogen effluvium, the following treatment options are available to help men and women put an end to excessive thinning and balding.

Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a topical hair loss foam that both men and women may use. When applied directly to the scalp, minoxidil has been shown in clinical studies to prevent the progression of hair loss. Patients are cautioned, however, that hair loss will begin again when minoxidil use is discontinued. This treatment is available over-the-counter under the popular brand, Rogaine®.

Laser Hair Restoration

Laser hair restoration is a nonsurgical hair loss treatment that has enjoyed ever-increasing popularity over the past 3 years. Treatment consists of exposure to cool laser light to improve blood circulation and hair follicle health, thus promoting natural hair growth. We are pleased to offer laser hair restoration with the Capillus272™ Pro, a FDA cleared laser cap that can be worn in the comfort of your own home for fast results.

Hair Transplant Surgery

Hair transplant surgery is a third option for men and women who suffer with hair loss. At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we offer two highly refined approaches to hair transplant surgery.

Strip Procedures. A thin linear strip of donor follicles (hair) is removed from the side or rear of the scalp, separated, and carefully transplanted to the thinning/balding area. Using a special closure technique, Miami Hair surgeon, Dr. Paul Rose, expertly redirects existing hairs to grow through and around the extraction area to effectively mask the signs of scarring. Learn more about strip procedures here.

ARTAS® Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). We are pleased to offer procedures with the revolutionary ARTAS® system, a minimally invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses digital mapping and robotics precision to select and harvest hair for transplantation (FUE). Learn more about ARTAS® hair transplant here.

Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars?

Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars? Do hair transplants leave scars? This is a question commonly asked by most patients considering surgical hair restoration. After all, the ultimate goal of a hair transplant procedure is to recreate a natural head of hair without any sign of surgical alteration— an accomplishment that is fundamentally undermined by unsightly scars in the donor area.

However, it is important for patients to have reasonable expectations with all forms of hair transplant. Depending on the procedure, light scarring will take either linear or dot-like shape, resulting from strip donor and follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures, respectively.

Do Hair Transplants Leave Scars?

At the Hair Transplant Institute of Miami, we are committed to advancing the practice of strip donor hair transplant to ensure each patient receives a natural result with minimal scarring that is discreet and difficult to detect.

Pictured left is a post-procedure image of a real patient after receiving a strip donor procedure. Using a unique Ledge Closure technique developed by Dr. Paul Rose, linear scars are effectively camouflaged by directing hair at the wound edge to grow through the scar line. This method, along with sound surgical technique, creates very fine scars that are difficult even for a hairstylist to find.

From Australia to UK, Hair Transplant Receives Celeb Endorsement

Most men and women understand that today’s hair transplant procedures are significantly more advanced than the “pluggy” procedures of the past. New technologies, refined extraction methods, and highly developed implant techniques make today’s transplants nearly impossible to detect. In fact, a recent study conducted by the ISHRS shows that over 84% of respondents could not identify hair transplant patients when compared to pictures of other men and women who had never experienced hair loss.

Not surprisingly, celebrities are among the thousands of men and women worldwide who enthusiastically embrace surgical hair restoration. What is surprising, however, is the openness with which celebrities are willing to share their transformation with the public.

Take Wes Welker, for example. This former New England Patriot shared his experience with surgical hair transplant with Americans nationwide, appearing on television commercials to share his decision to do something about his receding hairline. Read the full story here: Hair Transplant Receives Celebrity Endorsement from Wes Welker.

Americans are not the only celebrities to openly endorse hair transplants, however. In an article for Cric Life, cricket enthusiasts share before and after photos of 10 world renowned cricket players who “went for hair transplant” and—judging by the before and after photos—enjoyed exceptional results. Read the full story here: 10 Cricketers Who Went for Hair Transplant.

International Support for Hair Transplant

The Future of ARTAS® Hair Restoration

The introduction of robotic follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant procedures represents a significant achievement in the field of hair restoration. Today, surgeons can perform hair transplants with greater ease and precision, delivering a better patient experience and a beautifully natural end-result. Millions of men and women suffer with hair loss worldwide; today, advanced methods of hair restoration mean those individuals no longer have to let fear, embarrassment, or anxiety take away from the enjoyment of everyday life.

Last year, our practice became one of the first 13 clinics in the United States to acquire the ARTAS® System for robotic FUE transplant. Since that time, countless men and women have experienced the comfortable, minimally invasive procedure firsthand. Today’s robotic FUE procedures are just the beginning, however. It is with great pleasure and excitement that we share more information on current ARTAS procedures, as well as a special look at what the future holds.

Today’s Robotic FUE Procedure

FUE procedures are similar in concept to traditional strip donor hair transplants. Both procedures transplant donor hair from one healthy area of the scalp to the area that is receding and/or experiencing hair loss. Unlike strip donor, however, FUE procedures use a small punch instrument to remove individual clusters of donor hair. In this way, the development of FUE marks a significant milestone in which surgeons became able to perform transplants without extracting a linear strip of donor tissue— an extraction that inevitably left a long, linear scar.

Robotic FUE now enables surgeons to extract donor hair more quickly while simultaneously reducing trauma to the scalp. Surgeons use advanced robotics and high-resolution digital imaging to guide the robotic arm to make minimally invasive extractions that preserve the healthiest donor hair for transplant. With the assistance of robotic FUE systems like the ARTAS, Dr. Paul Rose estimates that up to 1,500 grafts can be harvested in about 2 hours— half the time it takes to harvest the same number of grafts by hand.

An added advantage: ARTAS selects donor hair at random to preserve the natural look of the patient’s donor areas (typically the sides and rear of the head).

The Future of ARTAS Procedures

Perhaps most exciting is the future of ARTAS procedures. Today, ARTAS is used to assist surgeons in identifying and extracting near-perfect donor hair for transplant. Following extraction, surgeons must prep and transplant donor hairs by hand, carefully inserting them into “recipient sites” on the patient’s scalp. According to Drs. Rose and Nusbaum, ARTAS may soon make that process more comfortable and efficient. In a letter to patients, the surgeons explain:

Until now, the ARTAS robotic technology was involved only in removing follicles from the donor area. ARTAS will soon, however, expand its role, as the robot capabilities have been expanded to the creation of the small openings (recipient sites) into which the donor grafts are inserted in the balding or thinning areas. The physician will design the recipient area pattern completely on a computer image of the patient, delineating the borders of the area to be transplanted and will also specify the direction and angle of the small openings which subsequently determines the direction and growth angle of the transplanted hairs. This information is inputted to the robotic system, which will make the sites avoiding existing hair. ARTAS controls the depth of each tiny opening and can create different hair densities in selected areas and can even create irregularity at the hairline for naturalness. This should allow the surgery to proceed more efficiently, yet still leaves room for that important human artistic input.
