Founded in October of 1978, Apollo Hair Care Center opened its doors in SW Houston located right next to the Arena Towers on the SW Freeway. Apollo of Houston was one of the (if not the original) first Apollo hair replacement centers in the world. The Houston Apollo, however, was not a franchise of the now worldwide Apollo International Hair Replacement Company. During the first tenure of ownership, Apollo assisted in the inventing of the Scalp – Lok process as well as the patented Derma-Vac hair restoration system.
In 1996, Apollo was sold to the Ventimiglia family who has been synonymous with the hair replacement industry for 30 years at the time. It was at this time that Apollo Hair Care Center made the legal restructuring to become Apollo Image Enhancement Center. 3 years later, Lenny Ventimiglia III took the helm of the company and still presides as the president of the organization today. Over the past 35 years, Apollo has been on the cutting edge of all forms of hair restoration procedures and providing confidence to men in their appearance.
Last year, Apollo teamed up with MyVita Wellness Institute in order to provide the first medically proven hair rehabilitation program. This program is the first of its kind that helps men in the beginning stages of hair loss to stop it in its tracks and increase the growth and volume of existing hairs. We appreciate all of the men and women that have showed us patronage over the years and look forward to serving Houstonians for many years to come.
