Wes Welker Undergoes Hair Restoration

July 23, 2012

Wes Welker, New England Patriot’s wide receiver and one of the finest athletes in any US sport, underwent a hair restoration procedure at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates just last month.  This procedure did not affect his playing abilities, and allowed him to immediately resume his every day activities which include training camp and being able to sport his Patriot’s helmet.   Welker will be able to see his new head of hair grow in just a matter of four months. According to Founder and Chief Surgeon at Hairlines, Dr. Leonard, “He is a gentleman in every sense of the word! He could not have been more polite and gracious during his hair loss consultation with me. And, during the procedure, we had a great time talking about his recent wedding, our families, and our travel experiences.”  Welker was so please by Dr. Leonard’s procedure that he later agreed to talk about his hair transplant experience while also raising awareness about hair loss by appearing in radio, television, and print ads with Dr. Leonard.

Kevin Youkilis: Bringing The Energy To His New Team!

July 9, 2012

Blue Sky client, Kevin Youkilis, is no longer wearing his Red Sox.  Last month, former Red Sox infielder changed into his White Sox and moved from Boston to Chicago, where he has become an instant favorite to the Chicago White Sox fans.  During his first four home games as a new team member, Youkilis has brought his energy and competitiveness to the field, allowing him to hit two homers and a game winning single.  It is safe to say that Youkilis has found his place on the South Side. Out of the ten games he has played in, the White Sox have taken home seven wins.  With the fans shouting, “Youkkkk,” and his jerseys and t-shirts for sale, it is time for Youkilis to turn the page. Now, it’s all about Chicago.
