The Future

The future of hair restoration is expanding and bright. The impact of current medications, such as finasteride and minoxidil, is well-documented and well-understood. The likely and future impact of medications like bimatoprost (Latisse®), and treatments such as PRP (platelet rich plasma), are actively considered and encouraging.

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) utilizes photo-biotherapy to stimulate hair follicles, for advantageous growth benefits and hair loss reduction. We’ve gained better understanding of the methodology and impact of laser light in the red light spectrum. Effective and safe delivery of energy application devices improves yearly.

The levels of intricacy and precision, as well as the general breadth of surgical application, and software-designed hair-planning strategy, continue to develop within the arena of robotic hair transplantation. As a result, hair transplant surgery can become more universally applied with predictability and confidence of minimizing risks, complications, and failures.

Hair multiplication techniques and hair cloning science are being actively investigated internationally. It is believed the science herein will culminate in the ultimate “cure” for hair loss. Dr. Sparano and the New Jersey Institute for Robotic Hair Surgery stay actively involved within this research community.
