FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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% of women by age 50. For about 25% of men, the balding process begins in their 20s and almost 85% will experience noticeable hair loss by their 50s.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR HAIR RESTORATION?
If you are seeking hair restoration due to thinning hair, bald spots, and/or a receding hairline, then yes! However, if you’ve lost hair as a result of medication, stress, or medical treatment, that hair loss can often be reversed without robotic transplant. You must have an adequate amount of hair growth or follicles to use for transplantation.
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?

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. We then transplant those donor hair follicles by hand for the most custom and natural looking results. Feel free to visit our How it Works page for more details, or contact us if you have questions!

DOES MY HAIR TYPE MATTER?

The ARTAS™ robotic procedure works best for men and women with dark, straight hair. However, MD Hair Labs offers restoration solutions to people with all different hair types and colors. Come visit us and let’s discuss your options.

IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
The ARTAS™ robotic system was developed in close collaboration with several leading hair restoration physicians to improve follicular unit harvesting for the benefit of their patients. Our technology has received FDA clearance, and we’re thrilled to offer this powerful new technology for those interested in a safe new way to enhance their appearance and quality of life.
HOW NATURAL LOOKING IS IT?

We harvest your own hair and meticulously design your new hair line or crown.  Design is based on your original hair line, hair direction, and density.  Pairing our aesthetic eye with precise technology gives you natural, permanent results. 

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TRANSPLANT?

– At least 2 weeks prior to the procedure: stop using topical hair treatments or blood-thinning medications.

– At least 1 week prior: No smoking one week before or after.

– 3 days before: No alcohol up to the time of the procedure.

– Day of procedure: No coffee or caffeine of any kind up to the time of the procedure.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The robotic method enables greater precision and speed, making the procedure faster than other more manual hair transplant methods. After the initial consultation, the procedure will take approximately 5-7 hours.
DOES THE PROCEDURE HURT?

This is an outpatient procedure performed in our office and requires only a local anesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain. Some patients can experience minor discomfort and swelling post-procedure, which subsides in one to three days—a much faster recovery than other methods.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?
Following your procedure, you should avoid anything that will cause unnecessary sweating such as strenuous exercise, steam rooms, and saunas. Don’t consume alcohol for at least one week to help transplanted grafts heal quickly, and try your best not to touch the newly transplanted hair with either hands or combs.
WILL THERE BE ANY SCARRING OR SIDE EFFECTS?

Our hair restoration transplant procedure is minimally invasive—accurately and intelligently harvesting individual follicles—which means no unsightly linear scarring. Side effects may include hemorrhage, infection, telogen effluvium, itching, scarring, cysts, bleeding, and swelling. Let us know if you have concerns.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Once the hair follicles have been implanted, the grafted hair will stay in place for about two to three weeks before shedding. Don’t worry! This is normal and an important part of the new growth process. After shedding, the new growth will begin in three to four months and your hair should continue to grow normally. Keep in mind that individual results and timelines may vary for each patient.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCING?

Yes! We are thrilled to be able to offer a range of financing options to qualifying patients through Care Credit. Click here to learn more and start the application process.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I had a great experience with my hair transplant procedure received at MD Hair Labs this week. Still very early in the process; however, I can say the procedure itself and the first few days afterward have been exactly as advertised. Zero pain on the day after. The game plan over the next few weeks to ensure successful transfer is super low maintenance. I can’t wait to see the final product!

COREY W.

The hair transplant procedure I received by MD Hair Labs has been a rewarding process. In just a few weeks I can see the results of where my hairline started and where it will be once the growth cycle is completed. The procedure itself was fairly painless, and the team at MD Hair Labs went above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable from start to finish.

DUSTIN R.

Consultation provided step-by-step guidelines on what to expect pre-op, during the procedure, and post-op. Doctors and staff are excellent communicators, incredibly responsive to questions, and provide a comfortable environment with their positive attitudes. Overall, I was very happy with my experience and would highly recommend.
