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..

As with any toy or gadget everything eventually gets an upgrade. In this case the Robotic ARTAS FUE is the upgrade for the old Strip method for hair restoration. More and more people are opting for a Robotic FUE procedure as there are many things that differentiate it from the strip method.  Dr Mark Bishara, the board certified hair restoration surgeon of North Texas, specializes in robotic hair restoration and his practice is a Center of Excellence awarded to very few robotic hair transplants surgeons by Restoration Robotics.
Making the decision to do a strip surgery vs the Robotic FUE can be tough! With a strip procedure your looking at not being able to wear your hair short (unless you don’t mind people seeing the linear scar) as with the Robotic FUE you can wear your hair which ever way you like because the tiny dots are easily disguised. Pain after a Robotic FUE with ARTAS at most will require tylenol or ibuprofen as for a strip procedure most patients need some prescribed narcotic pain medication. Recovery with a Robotic FUE does not have much of down time- 1.5 to 2 days. Most patients return to normal activities 3-4 days after versus with strip it can take up to 2 or more weeks as you will require more time to heal from the incision.
So as you see the improvement has been great and the Robotic FUE ARTAS transplant works wonders. Whats even better is that Dr. Mark Bishara does the Robotic FUE at both his locations, Mansfield and Southlake!  Give us a call and schedule your free consultation, don’t let more time pass by, get started today restoring your hair with the Paragon Hair Clinic and with Dr Mark Bishara, MD, FISHRS.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp Micropigmentation is one of the latest trends in helping people with different types of hair loss. It is used to mimic the hair follicles. It is not a scalp tattoo, special pigments are made and used for this treatment.
Robot Hair Transplant Video
Who can do SMP?
Anyone can do Scalp Micropigmentation. People suffering from alopecia, anyone with hairloss in the crown or hair. It can also be done on any skin types. SMP can cover up scars including those from past hair transplants surgeries. Last but not least, Yes! SMP is for women as well!

How is Scalp Micropigmentation done?

Scalp Micropigmentation is performed using a 3 dimensional needle to give the appearance of a small well trimmed hair shaft.  Organic ink is placed superficially into the epidermis.  If the ink is placed too deeply the blot smears and expands.  Sessions include at time zero, 2 weeks later, and 6 weeks.  Occasionally redoing some areas where necessary.

Is there any down time?

Shortly after your treatment scabs will begin to form. The scabs will naturally fall off between the 5 and 7th day. You want to avoid any physical activity or anything that will cause sweating for 4 days.
How long will the procedure take?
Typically your first SMP session will take any where from 3 to 4 hours. For the second session it will not take as long but it can be anywere from 2 to 3 hours.

Is the treatment painful?

Pain is different for each person. There are people that can do just fine and sleep through the treatment. There are some that would rate it a 2 or 3 on a pain scale of 1 to 10.

Hair transplantation has been around for quite some time now. From FUT’s, manual FUE to what now has become the best technique ROBOTIC FUE. Yes! it is an actual robot!. 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.
