A recent survey conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) showed that men and women around the world are seeking to correct hair loss while they’re younger rather than putting it off until later in life.
Since the ISHRS starting tracking data on hair restoration in 2004, the extrapolated worldwide volume of surgical hair restoration procedures performed from 2004 to 2012 increased 85 percent. What explains this tremendous increase in people seeking help for hair loss, even during tough economic times? We believe the unprecedented growth and increased popularity in hair restoration over the past decade can be directly attributed to the continual refinements and advances in this type of surgery – together with proven medical therapies – that produce natural-looking, permanent results.
Other key findings of the survey include:
- The number of women undergoing hair restoration surgery worldwide increased 20 percent from 2004 to 2012
- Patients aged 30 to 49 sought treatment for hair loss more than any other age group
- In 2012, ISHRS members chose John Mayer and Sofia Vergara as the celebrities with the best hair
The ARTAS System is a 21st-century technological innovation that was introduced into the hair treatment field in 2011 to treat male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. The system is sophisticated, utilizing computer assistance to harvest hair follicles during the actual process of hair replacement. ARTAS incorporates a number of elements in its operation, including an image-guided robotic arm and special imaging technologies that coordinate together for the purpose of implementing the “follicular unit extraction (FUE)” technique upon the recipient of the system.
