WHAT IS AESTHETIC SCALP?Welcome to Aesthetic Scalp Chicago, the premier hair transplant center where physicians provide a regenerative experience for patients. At Aesthetic Scalp Chicago, we combine the latest in hair transplant technology including robotic hair transplantation (Artas robotic hair transplantation) with the latest in regenerative medicine to help improve the state of your hair while minimizing downtime and scarring. We view both components to be vital to overall hair yield and patient satisfaction. WHY ARTAS FOR HAIR RESTORATION?We chose Artas robotic hair transplantation because it is the best technology currently available in the world of hair harvesting. The Artas robot when properly set up and utilized has one of the highest yields out of any FUE technique available. FUE techniques which use handheld drills rely on user expertise. These techniques while valuable will often lead to hair yields between 50% and 90% in expert hands. The reason for this is that even with the best magnification the location of the bulb of hair (the vital portion of hair to be harvested) cannot be seen with the human eye and must be estimated. Another limiting factor is that professionals must then remove hair without damaging the hair over a period of time and be precise and consistent. The Artas robot never gets tired and can locate the hair bulb with 99% accuracy!! This provides our patients with results they love and the highest yield we have found out of any device. There is a simple reason why many facilities do not use Artas robotic hair transplantation–cost. The latest technology is costly, however we know that our patients are worth every penny! WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?We utilize many of the principles of regenerative and integrative medicine to help improve our patients hair yield. If you implant hair into a dry, nutrient lacking scalp bed, your hair survival rate will likely be lower. Why not fertilize the scalp bed prior to hair transplant? Most facilities do not use any preparatory treatments to help stop hair loss and prime patients for transplantation. We utilize the latest regenerative treatments and supplements due to the incorporation of our medical hair loss expert, Dr. Sameea Chughtai, who is an expert in the function and physiology of the hair growth cycle. While other facilities will tout the use of PRP which has been shown to have some improvement in hair yield, we offer many other biologic and regenerative solutions as additional options. PRP is the use of platelet-rich plasma to improve yield. PRP involves spinning blood, separating the platelets and theoretically making the scalp bed more inviting for hair. We have found other products to be just as effective if not more. These include the use of growth factors and other principles of regenerative medicine to help improve the tissue bed and in our experience help patients grow hair. THE DOCTORS OF AESTHETIC SCALP Dr. ANIL SHAH, MD, FACSDr. Anil Shah, MD, FACS is world renowned and considered one of the best plastic surgeons in Chicago with technical experience in several fields. He utilizes technology in combination with traditional techniques to help give patients outstanding outcomes in hair transplantation surgery. Dr. Shah is currently the only board certified facial plastic surgeon with an Artas Robot and has worked with leading hair experts from all over including New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Chicago. Dr. SAMEEA CHUGHTAIDr. Sameea is an award-winning board-certified physician who specializes in improving patients hair health at the cellular level. Her areas of expertise include noninvasive technology, regenerative medicine, biologics, hormone therapy, female hair loss, aesthetics and anti-aging. She has been in practice for over 15 years and combines her expertise to help provide solutions to patients seeking answers to difficult hair questions, including those concerning female hair loss. TWO DOCTORS ARE BETTER THAN ONEWhy have 1 doctor when you can have two? Dr. Shah & Dr. Sameea work as a team to consistently employ the latest technologies to help patients, both male and female, understand and improve their hair loss. When accessing hair loss, your current condition as well as medical history will be reviewed to identify if there are any additional causes of hair loss. While the majority of male pattern baldness is related to androgenic alopecia, there are other factors which can contribute to hair loss. For this reason, products like Propecia are not universally effective. Dr. Shah and Dr. Sameea utilize the latest in medical treatments including regenerative medicine, biologics and other therapies in conjunction with the latest developments in surgical innovation such as robotic hair transplantation to help patients improve the state of their hair.
