Rapper Nick LaVelle’s Hair Restoration Journey began at the Bubolo Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

Rising Detroit Rapper/Singer Nick LaVelle was facing baldness at age 24. Desperately wanting to save his hairline he was running out of hope. He entrusted his health, self-image, and it impacted his confidence on stage performing to Dr. Bubolo who is advancing the Hair Restoration experience for men and women with technological updates at his multi-million-dollar national enterprise that has positively impacted over 100,000 people. 

“Thanks to Bubolo Medical FUE hair transplant, my life has changed,” said Nick LaVelle. “I was heading down a bald path, not saying balding isn’t a style I couldn’t have pulled off. But I just couldn’t fathom not having hair at 24 years of age.” 

The rapper Nick LaVelle added “I hustled my butt off to get my credit right to afford to finance this surgery and it’s been the best move I’ve made on the cosmetic side of things. The staff was really cool and informative throughout the process & it wasn’t painful & even the aftermath wasn’t bad. But more importantly, I am so excited to have done it and highly recommend this treatment to anyone out there struggling with hair loss in any form or fashion.”

Dr. Bubolo’s commitment to excellence is evident in his investments in state-of-the-art equipment and extensive training for himself and his staff.

Hair Transplant Surgeon Dr. Neil Gladstone adds, “I was a practicing Gynecologic  Surgeon for  50 years, but in 2018  my focus and direction changed. I attended several outstanding training programs and developed a group of invaluable mentors in the field of hair transplantation.  I can help a group of people make significant changes in their lives.”

Options (Transplants (NEO & ARTAS) , Grafts and PRP Treatments.)


A revolutionary treatment called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) harnesses the power of your body’s own healing mechanisms. We take a small sample of your blood and separate the platelet-rich plasma from it. This plasma is then injected into your scalp, stimulating hair follicles, and promoting growth.

PRP has shown great promise in clinical studies. The platelets contain growth factors that enhance hair follicle function, improve blood supply to the area, and extend the hair growth cycle.

RP can be effective for various types of hair loss, including male and female pattern baldness, as well as certain cases of alopecia areata. However, it’s best to have a thorough evaluation with a specialist to determine if PRP is the right treatment for you.


Keravive is a non-invasive and scientifically advanced treatment designed to promote scalp health and improve the overall quality of your hair. It combines a three-step process to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish your scalp. It’s beneficial for various hair and scalp conditions, including dryness, itchiness, and dandruff. It also improves the overall health of your scalp, creating a conducive environment for healthier, more vibrant hair. The entire Keravive treatment usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour.


The Laser Cap is considered safe and non-invasive, with minimal side effects. Some users may experience temporary scalp tingling or slight redness, but these typically resolve quickly. The device is effective for various types of hair loss, including androgenetic alopecia and general hair thinning. However, I recommend consulting with a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss and ensure the Laser Cap is the right solution for you.
