Dr-Shelly-Friedman, best hairtransplant specialistIn Arizona, the name Dr. Shelly Friedman is synonymous with hair restoration. With 29 years of experience treating more than 16,000 patients, he has been called one of the top ten hair transplant doctors in the United States. With an amazing career, Dr. Friedman has counted Fortune 500 executives as his patients, he’s flown to a foreign land and performed hair transplant surgery on members of unnamed royal family, he has answered to the needs of famous sports figures, television and movie stars, and you may have even heard about his work on local celebrities such Good Morning Arizona television host, Scott Pasmore, with KTVK, Channel 3 in Phoenix, as well as one of the top radio personalities in the Phoenix metro area. 

    Twenty-first century technology has changed our lives and it has also changed the field of hair restoration. These advancements have enabled Dr. Friedman to offer his patients a wider-range of hair loss treatment options. Hair transplant patients can now choose between the tried-and-true traditional strip-harvested follicular unit hair grafts, or they can opt for computer-controlled, robotic-assisted follicular unit extraction (FUE) with the ARTAS System from Restoration Robotics. This impressive new equipment offers many advantages including no linear scar graft harvesting as well as the ability to harvest more hair grafts than ever before.

    Whatever choice you make, you can feel comfortable knowing you made the right decision by choosing one of the most experienced, and best-rated hair transplant doctors in the country.

    The evolution in hair restoration technology is not limited to just surgical advancements. Depending on your type of hair loss, you may not even need surgery. In addition to topical and oral prescription treatments, which have been around for decades, the Scottsdale Institute offers FDA Cleared Low-Level Laser Therapy for proven hair loss prevention, as well as new hair growth in many of our LLLT patients.

    From Scott Pasmore:

    It’s the best thing I did. I am so happy with it and it just made me happy. It was painless and wasn’t a hassle at all. My brothers (who had the same temporal receding hairline he once did), are jealous.

    “Relaxed feeling. Tells it like it is. Makes the process less scary and understandable. I tried other places but this has been the most honest and trustworthy place I have found. I am a returning client so that has to say something about how Dr. Friedman puts you at ease. I appreciate you and your staff for everything. Especially giving me my confidence back.

    Thank you!”

    “Dr. Friedman and staff made my experience comfortable and painless!. I’m 24 years-old and had been struggling since I was 20 with my hairline. I was becoming very depressed and my primary care physician recommended I see Dr. Friedman at the Scottsdale Institute for Cosmetic Dermatology. I met his assistant, Dave, on a Thursday and was informed that they could help. I was so happy and motivated for the first time in years that I booked my surgery for following day.

    The procedure was excellent and all my needs were met. The Doctor and staff were super nice and helped keep me comfortable and relatively painless the entire time. Even after my surgery, they have been very helpful and accommodating to my needs/questions. I have felt very comfortable throughout my entire procedure thanks to them and will continue too see Scottsdale Institute for Cosmetic Dermatology for my hair needs in the future.”

    “ALL GOOD! I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Friedman and his entire staff. From my first conversation with Dave through the follow up visits, everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and willing to answer any and all of my questions.

    “The procedure was painless, as was the recovery. The doctor is always available to talk and he and his staff walked me through the entire experience. Can’t wait to see the final result as I have no doubt it will be, like everything else, better than expected!”
