Why 'Better Early than Late' is a Hair Loss Mentality Must

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

I address this topic the most, but it’s always worth repeating. If keeping your hair is important to you, the slightest change you notice either in texture or "thickness" or just a little more scalp is visible - this is concern enough to make an appointment for a treatment recommendation.

Optimizing CRP Treatments

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

Throughout my entire medical career, I don’t think I have been satisfied with the status quo. I am fortunate that things keep changing in medicine and keep improving.

Follicular Unit Miniaturization

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

One common topic I often get questions about is follicular units. A common misconception about hair growth is that all hairs grow out of the scalp separately (aka “single hair growth”). While there are singular hairs that do in fact grow individually, the rest of the hairs, known as follicular units, grow very close to each other, and sometimes even out of the same exit point.

Thermal Damage From Heat Styling: What You Need to Know

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

Most of us can’t live without using some form of heat on our hair, whether it’s a blow drier, flat-iron, or curling iron, but unfortunately these heat styling tools can cause, among others, a condition that dermatologists call bubble hair. A sign of thermal injury, bubble hair is the result of bubbles formed within the hair shaft when water in the hair is heated and turns into steam. Clinically, hair appears to be kinked, break off, and the condition may develop into localized alopecia over time.

Can E-Cigarettes Cause Hair Loss

Hair Transplant & Restoration Center

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tobacco is the most significant preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. Nicotine, a component of tobacco found in cigarettes, cigars, and e-cigarettes, is a highly addictive substance which contributes to compulsive use, relapse after abstinence, and physical dependence. In spite of the well-documented health hazards, an estimated 17% of Americans smoke cigarettes leading to nearly a half million deaths each year.
