Joey Fatone Got His Hair Back – You Can Too

Hair loss is so gradual that most people don’t notice until about 50% of it is gone.  This was the case with Joey Fatone, who started losing his hair while with ‘N Sync, but didn’t notice until years later.  He eventually turned to his manager for advice and was recommended Bosley.Joey Fatone Hair Transplant before and after

In our video interview, hear what Joey has to say about his Bosley hair transplant experience, and see how he looks today after his permanent hair restoration.

“Back in the day, the peak of our whole thing of ‘N Sync, being on stage was just an amazing rush.  Seeing my face in magazines, TV, t-shirts was pretty funny, pretty surreal.

I started losing my hair when I was still with ‘N Sync.  You know, touring around, running around you don’t really take a good look and stop and kind of look in the mirror and see exactly what’s going on.  But of course, I started wearing hats all the time.  Looking at a picture of when I was with ‘N Sync and then looking at a picture, you know, now, and you kind of look and go okay, the hair is thinning a little bit.

Nobody was really coming up to me and saying, ‘you know what maybe you should do something about it.’  And I called up my manager and said, “Hey, what do you think is the best thing to do?”  And he first says to me, he goes, “You know what, let’s call Bosley.”

Nobody knew about my hair restoration until now, and that’s what’s so great about Bosley – nobody knew about it.  It’s your hair, it’s not from some plant, it doesn’t look like a rug.  It’s not like anything of its kind – it’s your hair.

It’s okay to get this stuff done.  People get things augmented all the time.  This is just something you’re bringing back to life, and bringing your youth back.  And it’s real.  You know, I wouldn’t be doing this right now if I didn’t stand behind it.  And I’m proud to say that I have gotten it done.  And people should do it too.”

How many hair transplant procedures are required before hair is permanently restored?

Individuals with thinning hair often ask how many procedures it will take before their hair and hairline are fully restored.  Dr. Ken Washenik, Bosley Medical Director, answers as part of an ongoing hair transplant physician Q&A series.Bosley Hair Transplant Results

“When asked how many hair transplantation procedures a person might need or how many do people generally need, it’s a difficult question because it really depends on a number of factors.  One, how much hair loss do you have?  How much hair replacement, restoration do you need to satisfy you, or meet your objectives?  So, it’s different from person to person.  Also, your donor hair – the type of hair you have.  How much do you have?  What texture is it – is it straight?  Is it curly?  Is it coarse?  Is it fine hair?  So those different variables will affect how many grafts you will ultimately want to move to meet your goals, or your objectives.

Also, if you have ongoing hair loss – and most people who are looking for hair restoration surgery, transplantation surgery have a medical condition like male pattern or female pattern hair loss.  So, you have ongoing hair loss.  So, another factor that plays into how many grafts or how many procedures you will ultimately want is your ongoing hair loss.  So, it’s my recommendation that you treat that hair loss, that you use a medication to slow down, stop, or even reverse some of that hair loss, and that will only help with your hair restoration needs.”

Gerald’s hair began thinning in college – See him now

Gerald decided on Bosley hair transplantation after his hair continued to thin after college.  After having his hair permanently restored Gerald once again is happy about how he looks and feels.  He gets compliments on his wavy hair just like when he was younger.

See Gerald’s before and after hair transplant photos and hear what he has to say about his restoration experience at Bosley.

“My brother and I, we’ve always had wavy hair.  Well, his is curly, mine was more wavy.  And all the ladies, quite frankly, would compliment me on my hair.

I first noticed my hair was falling out when I was in early college.  It started thinning and I was really, really getting concerned about it.  Hair loss is a very emotional experience because it alters your appearance, and how people look at you and perceive you.  I felt like I was kind of leaving my life behind.

Since I’ve had the experience with Bosley, I am ecstatic about how I look, about the energy that I have.  I get compliments about my hair all the time.  And having been known for my hair when I was going through the early phases of my life – to hear those compliments again, it just really floats my boat.

If I didn’t have the picture to prove it, I would say this wasn’t me.  Thank you Bosley!”

Gerald’s hairline restoration is virtually undetectable due to the artistic abilities and experience of Bosley physicians.  Bosley physicians carefully consider age, facial structure, existing hairline, quality of hair and long-term goals when establishing a complete hair restoration plan.

Is Propecia or Rogaine More Effective For Treating Hair Loss?

People experiencing hair loss typically have many questions about what causes hair loss and how well the available treatments options work.  Dr. Washenik answers many of these common hair loss questions in the Bosley Physician Q&A video series.

Ken Washenik, M.D., Ph.D., is the Chief Medical Officer and Medical Director of Bosley, the world’s most experienced hair restoration expert. Dr. Washenik is also the former CEO of the Aderans Research Institute, a biotechnology firm involved in researching tissue engineered hair follicle neogenesis and cellular-based hair restoration.

In this video Dr. Washenik explains the effectiveness and differences between two FDA-approved hair loss treatments, Propecia® and Rogaine®.

“Currently, in the United States, we’re lucky to have two medications approved for treating hair loss – Propecia® and Rogaine®.  Propecia® is the trade name for Finasteride, and Rogaine® is the trade name for the drug Minoxidil.  They both work very nicely.  They both are approved for use for male pattern hair loss in men, and only Rogaine® or Minoxidil is approved for female pattern hair loss, or androgenic alopecia in women.

When asked to compare a Propecia® and a Rogaine® in men, I would say, from my clinical experience – first of all I would love for you to use both, I’m a big proponent of combination therapy.  Those drugs work differently, and because they have different mechanisms of action I like to combine the two.  If you had to pick one, my own experience has been that I think Propecia® is a more effective monotherapy if your goal is re-growing hair, then Minoxidil or Rogaine® is.  But they’re both effective, and they’re both effective at slowing down or inhibiting the process of hair loss.

When I look at Rogaine® and Propecia® and try to compare effectiveness, my first response is that if you can, like in men, I like to combine both.  And I think, as a monotherapy, I would rate Propecia® somewhat higher than Rogaine®.  Now that could be the mechanism of action for the people, it could also be compliance – your ability to stay with the therapy as you’re supposed to use it.  Since Propecia® is just taking a pill each day, and Rogaine® is currently approved to be used as twice a day application to your scalp – some people find that more challenging to do and they may not be able to stay as stringent in their regimen.

Now with women, definitely Rogaine® is the most potent treatment we have currently.  Now in the world for treating female hair loss – in the U.S. it’s the only medication that’s approved for treating female pattern hair loss.  And it works very well at slowing down, inhibiting the hair loss process, and even reversing it and gaining some hair back in certain patients who use it.”
