The Webinar Video’s Have Arrived!

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

One of the goals of US Hair Restoration is to connect our patients with Medical Director, Dr. Parsa Mohebi. One of the difficulties of the high paced environment of cosmetic surgery is there is little time for non-patients to connect with the doctor himself. Every few months we connect Dr. Mohebi with patients and those with question through an ongoing webinar series. We are proud to announce the webinars are available to be watched by topic at our website. Here are a couple of popular topics discussed by Dr. Mohebi:

Hair Loss Psychology

Male Patterned Hair Loss


Why Hair Turns Gray

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Gray Hair on a MaleMany come to us at US Hair Restoration with questions about the phenomenon of graying hair. It is obvious to most that graying hair grows thicker and better than the hairs with the natural hair color. Studies have shown there is a correlation between different the elements of hair growth as to why hair turns gray or eventually white.

When the proteins and genes in hairs are evaluated, it is seen why naturaly colored and white hairs grow differently. When the morph patterns in scalp hair and eyebrow hair on humans are observed, keratin and keratin-associated protein genes in gray hair were up-regulated at least 2-fold in comparison with black or pigmented hair in their analysis.

All this being said, the white or non-pigmented hairs, were twice as thick as the normal pigmented hairs. These observations suggest that graying hair and active hair growth are associated with one another. A breakthrough revelation that helps to shed light on why certain hair growth patterns seem odd, yet serve a purpose.
