The Future of Beauty: “Hair transplants with long term viability” With Abed Ayesh of Eternal Hair & Esthetics

I would like to inspire a movement for people to feel beautiful. I think that beauty knows no bounds and that confidence instills beauty. People are watching others’ lives on Instagram thinking that’s reality, but the reality is that when you wake up in the morning and you look in the mirror, whether you’re bald, overweight or no matter what you have, your mind should feel beautiful. You can teach yourself and others to be beautiful no matter what.

As a part of our series about how technology will be changing the beauty industry over the next five years, I had the pleasure of interviewing Abed Ayesh.

Abed Ayesh is an entrepreneur and owner of Eternal Hair & Esthetics. He has studied the most cutting-edge and innovative methods of hair restoration from around the world, becoming the premier expert in the tri-state area and attracting clients from all over the United States and internationally.

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Before we dive in, our readers would love to learn a bit more about you. Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

My desire to get a hair transplant is what led me to this career path. I had begun my research to find the best hair transplant facilities around the world because I wanted to make sure I received the best method with the most natural results. I traveled to different countries so I could see what was out there and I found a method that I thought was very unique, but it was offered in a way that wasn’t complete. Ultimately, I was afraid to trust someone with my hair. So, I decided to build my own business where I incorporated several existing elite methods in the industry to create the DFI (Direct Follicle Implant) method.

Are you able to identify a “tipping point” in your career when you started to see success? Did you start doing anything different? Are there takeaways or lessons that others can learn from that?

I realized this market needed to be more mainstream versus elitist. I felt that hair transplants were overvalued rather than being something that is readily available to the common individual. I also realized that the many practices that delivered the less expensive product were not using physicians to administer these transplants, thus the results weren’t great.

Eternal Hair and Esthetics aims to deliver excellent product with amazing results and reasonable pricing. We make hair transplants accessible to common individuals. Our goal is to address the problem, work on lifestyle changes and offer a solution rather than just patching up the problem area. We also provide PRP (Protein-Rich Platelets) and vitamins with our transplants in hopes to address and slow down hair loss in each patient.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person to whom you are grateful who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

I would attribute all of my success to my mom. Growing up with a single mother, who would never settle for mediocrity and who always wanted us to be the best, drove me to be a go getter and to strive to be the best in everything. She is the reason why I don’t want to have a regular hair transplant group; I want to be the top hair transplant group in the world. I want to provide all of our patients with the best pricing and top-notch natural results.

Ok super. Let’s now shift to the main part of our discussion. The beauty industry today has access to technology that was inconceivable only a short time ago. Can you tell us about the “cutting edge” (pardon the pun) technologies that you are working with or introducing? How do you think that will help people?

For hair transplants, devices have enabled us to use smaller punches to get maximum extraction. This helps us maximize on the amount of grafts we’re able to extract. The tray implanters have helped us create a natural hair line. These devices have improved the total outcome of a hair transplant. We believe that SmartGraft devices are the best out there because it helps us do extractions. SmartGraft takes the graft right into a chilled compartment, which gives long term viability to the graft because its survival ratio is much higher than a non-chilled environment.

Can you share 3 things that most excite you about the “beauty-tech” industry?

I think the beauty industry has come a long way! You now have 4D liposuction, that gives someone a 6 pack after 1 Liposuction treatment! We’re excited to introduce High-Def Liposuction to our practice. We’re also looking into exosomes in the industry for hair, which has shown results of growing new hair without surgery. Red Light Therapy has also shown to strengthen your hair. Technology has definitely come a long way and understanding why you’re losing hair and what’s causing it is not so much of a guessing game anymore.

Can you share 3 things that most concern you about the industry? If you had the ability to implement 3 ways to reform or improve the industry, what would you suggest?

There are many things that concern me about the hair transplant industry. For starters, there are people executing hair transplants that are not medical physicians. It’s very important for the consumer to be more educated on whether it’s a technician or a medical provider administering their hair transplant. There is also no recourse to medical tourism and many of the medical practices abroad are unregulated and can be risky. In the US, the tech model is also unsafe and unregulated right now. In the near term, I think you will need to be a medical provider in order to do a hair transplant and I believe the industry needs to go that way.

You are a person of great influence. If you could inspire a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
