Over 50% of men approaching 50 years old and 30% of women will experience balding during their lives.  Many of these same people have felt older when they look in the mirror or have seen pictures of balding or thinning hair.   Hair loss can have devastating effect on confidence and self esteem.  If you are interested in a consultation to restore your hair email [email protected]
If you have felt a decrease in self confidence or would like to look younger, then consider the potential outcome after you restore your hair.  Using the ARTAS robot or other Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) devices Dr. Mark A. Bishara, board certified hair restoration surgeon, can restore many patients back to a more youthful and healthy looking stage. If another surgical procedure is indicated instead of FUE to achieve fuller hair and better density, a consultation with Dr Mark A Bishara will bring that to light.

Many patients will present with diffuse hair loss or will have insignificant amounts of follicles to transplant and may not be good candidates to restore their hair.  Discussing these surgical and non surgical options to restore your hair with Dr Mark A Bishara will start your journey towards a more youthful you.
Non surgical treatments for hair loss may be recommended by Dr Mark A Bishara to restore your hair.  You may also be recommended to add non-surgical adjuncts to your procedure to restore your hair.  Non surgical adjuncts include platelet rich plasma therapy (or PRP), low level light therapy (LLLT), finasteride pills by mouth, and minoxidil with bimotoprost.
PRP, as seen on both Good Morning America and Good Morning Texas is offered in 1 or 2 areas, and is carried out at the time of a transplant, or without a transplant, and repeated 3 times over 90 days.  Most patients will respond with a response rate of 70-90%.  In fact, some patients respond better than others.  Some providers have chosen to add amniotic and placental products.  At the current time the Paragon Hair Clinic has chosen not to add these products as of summer of 2018 while further safety and efficacy can be determined.
Low level light therapy stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss in the majority of patients who remain compliant under the Paragon Hair Clinic protocols.  Using sustained light for as little as 6 to 12 minutes every day or every other day for 6 months shows results.  Patients who see results in the hair often experience shedding between 2-6 weeks which is normal and should not be alarming.  LLLT has been tested in a randomized, double-blinded, placebo controlled method and increases hair mass in most patients between 6 and 10 months.
Finasteride 1mg per day or 2.5 mg every other day can also stimulate hair mass in the crown and posterior mid scalp but is less effective on the hair line.  Finasteride has been known to cause decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and gynecomastia in small percentages reported by Merck.
Minoxidil is also FDA approved to prevent hair loss.  Bimatoprost has also been used to stimulate eyelash growth and has been used by some opthomologists for hair mass stimulation. Bimatoprost is not used widespread for hair loss prevention because of the expense.  There is only one pharmacy that the Paragon Hair Clinic endorses for the production of a compounded form of Minoxidil 14% with Bimotoprost.
Using these four products together can give a response that is greater than using the individual components to restore your hair..

We know how to unlock the body’s capability to help regrow you own hair.  Taking 4 tubes of  your blood and spinning it at 1900 RPM for 10 minutes to harvest platelet rich plasma and reinject it with tiny needles where your hair is thinning can improve density and help thicken hair in 70-90% of patients.  Three-25 minute treatments performed over 60 days in either one of our offices in 1 or 2 areas will improve density over the ensuing 4-6 months or 2 hair cycles.   Shedding can be a result of stimulating new hair growth that pushes old hair out.
PRP treatments are becoming quite popular now in days, especially for us here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. With androgenic alopecia becoming a concern to many men and women, PRP has also become a solution for them.

What is PRP?

PRP is short Platelet Rich Plasma, it is one of most recent methods out there for the many types of alopecia. PRP contains growth factors. The way a PRP treatment is done at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we draw blood from the patient. Place the blood in a centrifuge and let it spin for about 10 minutes. Once ready we only draw the platelet rich plasma leaving the red cells behind. PRP is then injected to scalp or area in which we are treating the patient.

Are PRP treatments painful?

PRP treatments can be a bit discomforting for some patients. Here at The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we use local anesthetic before we inject PRP into the patients scalp. We make sure the patient is comfortable before we inject the PRP.

Is there any down time for PRP treatments?

The best part of this preventative hair loss method, aside from it being non-surgical is that there is NO DOWNTIME! PRP treatments can take up to an hour to be done but you can resume normal activities right after.

Who can get PRP treatments?

The ideal candidate for PRP treatment are those men and women who have recently discovered hairloss/shedding. Research has shown that PRP can also work for women who have suffered hairloss due to tight braids, and ponytails. PRP is not for people that are completely bald.

Where can i get a PRP treatment done?

The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa currenty has two offices in Mansfield, TX and Southlake, TX to help accomadate all of our patients. Don’t let more time pass.. Get the help you need for your hairloss now! Dr. Mark Bishara and The Paragon family are waiting to get you started on your journey to full head of hair!

Frequently Asked Questions
About The ARTAS Procedure

How does the ARTAS Robotic Procedure work?

The ARTAS Robotic Procedure is a minimally invasive hair restoration solution that leverages digital imaging and precision robotics to harvest healthy grafts for transplantation. Unlike the earlier methods of hair restoration, there is no need for the surgical removal of a band of tissue from the back and sides of the head, no linear scar left after surgery and no need for stitches or staples to close the wound. The benefit is a quick recovery time and the ability to return to normal activities and work sooner.

What is the price of the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant?

Treatment costs will be determined during your consultation with your doctor and depend on the amount of new hair that you desire. Discuss the procedure pricing with your doctor, as some doctors may offer payment options.

Does the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant procedure hurt?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office, 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.

How will my hair look after the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant provides extremely natural looking results. After the procedure, you are able to wear your hair any length or style with confidence.

How is the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant different than “Hair Plugs”?

Old fashioned “hair plugs” included the harvesting of large patches of hair that resulted in an awkward and unnatural appearance once implanted. In the ARTAS Robotic Procedure, hairs are harvested in their natural groupings and then transplanted individually by your physician. Individual transplantation provides you with the look you desire, including a great looking hairline and a fuller head of hair.

Are ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant results permanent?

Yes. The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant uses your own permanent growing hair, typically from the back of your head, and your physician then implants this hair to the thinning areas of your scalp. As this hair is not susceptible to the conditions that cause male pattern baldness, transplanted hair will last a lifetime.

How long does it take to recover and heal?

Recovery time with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is less than with most surgical cosmetic procedures. As there is no surgical incision or stitches required with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, healing time is short, and you can usually go back to your daily activities after a day or two. Some doctors schedule a follow up visit the morning after the procedure to examine your scalp and to teach you how to take care of your newly implanted hair.

When will my new hair start to grow?

Transplanted hair grows naturally in phases. New hairs are seen about three months after the procedure, and will continue to increase over the course of a full year. At approximately six months, you will enjoy a noticeable improvement and after a full year, you will see final results.

Should I cut my hair before treatment?

Yes. Trimming your hair in the donor area allows the ARTAS Robotic System to accurately visualize, track and harvest each grouping of hairs. You will receive instructions on having your hair cut shorter in preparation for your ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant.

Will people know I have had a hair transplant procedure?

With the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant, any scarring is minimal and is nearly undetectable. Your new hair grows in gradually, reducing the chance that people will notice the procedure. Your friends and family will comment that you look better, but the results from your hair transplant are subtle and natural.

Will there be visible scarring in the donor area?

Because the ARTAS Robotic System selectively harvests individual hair groupings rather than removing a large area of scalp requiring sutures, there is minimal scarring in the donor area. Hair can be worn fashionably short, or in longer styles, whatever you prefer. You’re not limited by having to cover scarring from strip surgery.

How long does the ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant procedure take?

The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant usually takes from four to eight hours as determined by your doctor to achieve your hair restoration goals. You are comfortably seated during the process, and the doctor and staff are there with you to maximize your comfort throughout the procedure.

Before you make a decision, it is important to ask your physician questions about pain, residual side effects and the major differences between the ARTAS® Robotic Procedure and manual follicular unit extraction (FUE).

Be sure to download the list of questions to take to your consultation.

How is the physician involved during my ARTAS Robotic Procedure?

The ARTAS Procedure is performed by a licensed physician and surgical staff that have been properly trained and certified on the ARTAS Robotic System. Your physician is the one who creates the hairline design, sets the parameters for harvesting and manages your personalized treatment plan.

What are the qualifications of the ARTAS technicians you use?

At Restoration Robotics, we certify and train the staff on the ARTAS Robotic System. Restoration Robotics also provides ongoing education and training to keep the staff updated on the latest technology developments.
It is important to confirm with your physician that the individuals you meet with make up the team that will execute your procedure.

Does my ARTAS Robotic Procedure require stitches? Is it painful? Are there any residual side effects like with strip surgery?

  • In strip surgery, a long strip of tissue is surgically removed from the back of your head and stitches are used to sew the scalp back together again. This can leave a visible linear scar and also make the healing process uncomfortable, or even painful.
  • With the ARTAS Procedure, small needles are used to remove thousands of hair follicles from your scalp leaving only small pinpoint incisions. Since the incisions are distributed throughout a broad area, your Donor Area maintains its natural look and the procedure is less detectable. Patients often describe the procedure as virtually pain-free.

What is the difference between the ARTAS Procedure versus manual FUE ?

  • Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is a labor intensive procedure that is highly dependent on precision and repetition to harvest thousands of healthy hairs for transplantation. When performed manually, the success of the procedure is limited by hand-eye coordination. Because the procedure is tedious and long, the results can be affected by a person’s fatigue.
  • With the ARTAS Procedure, a robot is used to harvest the hair. Robots excel at tasks that require precision, repetition and consistency. Because of the intelligent algorithms and the dissection technique, the robot can harvest hair effectively throughout the procedure. The quality of the first graft is the same as the 500th graft harvested. Robots never get tired.

Dr. Mark Bishara has performed the most Robotic FUEs in the world. It is definitely a huge upgrade in the world of hair restoration.

Artas Robot

The ARTAS Robot was cleared by the FDA in 2011. The ARTAS Robot allows Dr. Mark Bishara to maneuver the robot to dissect the best follicular units. The robot is equipped with multiple cameras to help capture the best video and images of the patients hair.  The robot does the dissecting part of the procedure.   The follicular units are checked for quality as the robot dissects and the units get extracted. The robot is built to make recipient sites as well, once the sites are made and the follicular units are checked the planting begins. The new hair is then planted on to the patients recipient area. Local anesthetic is used to help with any pain and discomfort along with Valium to help the patient relax. The ARTAS Robot cuts down on time from a FUT procedure. Instructions on how to care for the new hair is provided before and after the procedure.
Dr. Mark A Bishara is the only known physician to own 3 ARTAS Robots that exclusively uses them in north Texas and has done more FUE procedures with the robot in the world. As if that isn’t enough Dr. Mark Bishara has great bed side manners. He is a great listener and is very attentive to patient needs. He works out of 2 offices located in Mansfield and Southlake to make it more convenient for his patients.
