Thin Hair, Not Fair? 6 Ways to Fight Hair Loss & Thinning Hair

Among the six treatments for hair loss recommended in the Today.com story are compounded minoxidil (rogaine alternatives), nutritionals like Viviscal Pro, laser therapy with LaserCap, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma. Other therapies used by full time hair restoration physicians include no-scalpel, no-stitch Hair Transplantation with NeoGraft or using the the ARTAS robotic system.

For women, the most common triggers are hormonal (pregnancy, menopause, thyroid disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome) or hereditary, but autoimmune conditions and nutritional deficiencies can also be to blame. And unlike men, we tend to lose hair gradually and all over the head, so it can take longer to detect. "Many of my patients notice a change in the shape of their face as the temples recede, a widening of their part line or that their ponytail is smaller in diameter," says hair restoration specialist Dr. Alan Bauman, who heads the Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton, Florida.

Luckily, there's a lot that can be done, from lasers to lotions and everything in between. And you'll be rewarded for treating it early. "I liken it to sun damage — it's never too late to address the problem, but it will get worse with time if you don't slow the progression," says Bauman. Here, the best, doctor-approved treatments from easy-peasy to full-on offense.

Check out at-home lasers.

Discreet enough to fit under a cute cloche, the Laser Cap is a powerful (but pricey) way to increase hair mass. "We've had excellent results using laser therapy in-office for several years, but now most patients are treating themselves out of the office," says Bauman. "The device emits low-level laser light treatment proven to enhance growth while you go about your day. It's painless, chemical-free, has no side effects and you see results in 90 days." (And it's a great excuse to expand your hat collection.)

Investigate PRP.

Ready for the big guns? "Platelet-rich plasma is the newest frontier," says Bauman. "It allows us to exploit your body's own pharmacy of growth factors. It isn't an overnight cure, but we can clinically measure improvements in several weeks, and they're noticeable to the naked eye after six months." Here's how it works: A small sample of the patient's blood is processed to separate out the platelets and stem-cell-rich plasma. In some cases, additional "bioscaffolding" — sometimes placental tissue from screened donors — is blended in to improve the effects. Then, the custom cocktail is shallowly injected under the scalp under local anesthesia. Sounds intense, but "it's comfortable, takes less than an hour and there is no recovery phase," promises Bauman.

 

The key is accurate diagnosis, effective prescription treatments and proper routine follow-up HairCheck measurements. For more info about board certified hair restoration physician, Dr. Alan Bauman, visit http://www.baumanmedical.com

Top hair loss doctors, researchers and over 150 patients met and spoke with Cicatricial Alopecia patient ‘Ivory’ who underwent an innovative hair restoration method by Dr. Bauman combining the latest permanent FUE/FUT hair transplantation procedure with a custom 3D-printed hair and scalp prosthetic device.

  

BOCA RATON, FL (PRWEB) JUNE 15, 2016

Internationally recognized hair loss expert, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, recently teamed up with the Cicatricial Alopecia Research Foundation or CARF to raise awareness on scarring alopecia as well as educate patients, researchers and physicians on some of the new options available for this currently incurable condition.

"This year's conference was a huge success, and allowed us to further CARF's mission to provide education and patient support, raise public awareness, and advance and promote research. It truly was a collaborative team effort, and we are so thankful to have the support from Dr. Bauman, and others in the hair restoration community, who are helping to improve the care of patients with scarring alopecia," said Nicole Rogers, MD, FAAD and Conference Chair. Dr. Bauman was invited by Dr. Rogers and CARF to be a featured speaker at their 7th International Patient-Doctor Conference, June 3-5, in New Orleans, #CARF2016. His presentation, “The Best of All Worlds,” was focused on the combined use of a medical grade 3D printed hair and scalp prosthetic along with hair transplantation in a patient with traction alopecia and central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia. Dr. Bauman and his patient, “Ivory,” were in attendance at the conference to discuss her experience with cicatricial alopecia and her treatment, which included hair transplantation and a custom CRLab CNC hair replacement system made in Bologna, Italy.

Cicatricial alopecia affected my self-confidence and has been self-limiting for me. I refused to see a new hair stylist, as I was afraid they would be shocked or ask numerous questions. I was afraid and ashamed to seek help. I also avoided activities, such as swimming or simply riding in a convertible,” said Dr. Bauman’s patient Ivory. “Now, my results are permanent and I feel 100% more confident. Dr. Bauman and my new CNC system have given me a new outlook for managing and coping with my hair loss.”

Some of the experts who were in attendance to present and participate in the panel discussions along with Dr. Alan Bauman include Dr. Antonella Tosti, Dr. Yolanda Lenzy, Dr. Melissa Piliang, Dr. Lady Dy, Dr. Lynne Goldberg, Dr. Erin Boh, Dr. Marc Avram, Dr. Patricia Farris, Dr. Kate Holcomb, Dr. Wilma Bergfeld, Dr. Maria Hordinsky, Dr. Fonda Farah, Ms. Rita Wanser, Ms. Elayne Kuehler, Ms. Debbie Guastella and Dr. Jeff Donovan. This event was sponsored in part by Procter & Gamble, Lifes2Good (makers of Viviscal) and Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories (makers of the CRLab CNC Hair Replacement System).

“CARF is a truly unique organization that has really grown into a valuable resource for both patients and physicians,” Dr. Bauman commented.

Man gets more Tinder matches after hair transplant #firstimpression

We all know that first impressions count whether you are aiming for job interview or a date. 

Richard King, 31, noticed he was getting much more attention from women after undergoing a hair transplant. He and his hair surgeon, Dr. Bessam Farjo, decided to set up two Tinder profiles for Richard – one featuring his new head of hair and the other with his pre-surgery mane. The two were surprised to find that Richard’s new locks increased his Tinder matches by 75 percent, receiving 203 matches compared to the 116 he got on his pre-transplant photos.

Top 6 Reasons Your Hair Growth Treatments Aren't Working

Hair regrowth not working_Dr_Alan_Bauman_SFHW

 

 

 

"Top Six Reasons Why Your Hair Regrowth Treatments Aren’t Working"

by Alan J. Bauman, M.D.  /  Diplomate, American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery

 

Deciding to undergo treatment for hair loss isn’t always easy. Particularly for women, there is often a lot of embarrassment and confusion that goes along with this condition. Admitting to yourself that you have female- or male-pattern hair loss is sometimes a tough pill to swallow, but coupled with this is the nagging fear that the treatments won't work.

This is why it’s so important for patients to feel confident about the effective treatment options that are available and what time and effort is needed to achieve results.

By the time hair loss becomes visible to the naked eye, over 50% of your hair may have already been lost. So, getting started early on treatments and sticking to your doctor’s medical plan and follow-up appointments are critical to reversing hair loss.

While occasionally men and women may feel like the treatments “aren’t working,” it’s important to get a clear perspective on why this may - or may not - be the case. Having realistic expectations about what these treatments will do and how long they will take is also critical. After all, the main reason why treatments fail is that patients give up too soon… long before the results are visible to the naked eye. Good things come to those who are consistent and “wait.”  Treating hair loss is a marathon, not a sprint.

Since August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month, I thought it an important time to address this common question among hair loss sufferers.

Here are six reasons why your hair loss treatment may not be working:

1) "You Think It’s Not Working, But It Is."

First off, let’s address the obvious. In many cases, patients don’t “feel” like their treatment program is working, when in reality it is. The problem is that hair growth rates are slow (about 1/4-inch per month) — therefore most treatments take at least six months before subtle results are visible to the naked eye, and even with an advanced hair transplant procedure it takes a year or more for the full result to grow in.

I would recommend that hair loss patients always keep in touch with their doctors, because he/she can take scientific measurements and use microscopic analysis of the follicles to determine if the regrowth is taking place as it should. For example, patients undergoing a non-invasive treatment regimen can use baseline and tracking measurements like HairCheck/HairCam evaluations performed by their doctor or a certified HairCoach™ to support or discontinue their treatments.

Also remember that symptoms may be misleading. A temporary increase in shedding may be a sign your new treatment is working so push onward through to that 90-day follow-up visit to find out what’s really happening at the scalp. 

 

2) "You’re Doing It Wrong."

Sometimes, ‘user error’ is the reason why a treatment takes longer than it should to show results. For example, sloppy or inconsistent application of a prescription topical medication like Compounded Minoxidil Formula 82M may mean the difference between fair results and great results. But you may also simply be using the wrong treatment. Expecting medical-grade results from an over-the-counter treatment (i.e. Rogaine) or a cheap and weak consumer laser (like some of the ones seen in popular in-flight magazines) vs. physician-only/prescribed laser device simply doesn't make logical sense.

 

3) "Wrong Diagnosis."

Some rare medical hair loss conditions mimic more common ones, meaning you might be on the wrong treatment regimen. See the right physician. A missed diagnosis of a scarring alopecia for example could spell disaster for your hair in a hurry if left untreated.

 

3) "Hair Loss Risk Factors Are Inhibiting Your Results."

In a perfect healthy world, treatments for hereditary hair loss work for everyone, but in real life hair loss risk factors like stress, poor diet, medications, toxins like smoking and alcohol intake, poor sleep cycles, hormone imbalance, acute and chronic illnesses and more can overwhelm even the best medical hair regrowth regimen. If your doctor glosses over these risks, or worse, adds to the problem like prescribing testosterone while you are at risk for hereditary hair loss, for example, your hair regrowth may suffer.

 

4) "Too Late."

Many patients have gone from “bare to hair,” so while it’s never really “too late” to start a hair restoration regimen, sometimes an area of scalp is simply “too far gone” to be helped with traditional non-invasive therapies alone. Meaning, if there is a severe depletion of hair follicles, you will likely need some degree of hair transplantation to reach your goals in that area.

 

5) Wrong Doctor.

Your primary doctor, ob/gyn, plastic surgeon or even your dermatologist may not be the best source of advice for the most advanced hair loss evaluations, measurements or treatments.  While it is true that dermatologists do study hair loss amongst skin diseases during their schooling, the courses are generally brief and not “all encompassing” as compared to a physician specialist solely focusing on hair and hair loss and is staying abreast of the latest research and the newest treatment options.

After all, while your basic car mechanic may know a bit about your transmission and transmission problems, a transmission specialist is where I’d take my car!

Bottom line: Seek a doctor with expertise specializing specifically in hair loss and its treatment.

New York Times reviews #hairloss treatments like PRP, lasers, stem cells and hair transplants

image from static01.nyt.com

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/16/fashion/new-hair-thinning-treatments-for-women.html

Nice to see some of the new hair loss treatments for women gain some attention from the New York Times. They covered therapies like stem cells, PRP, minoxidil, laser therapy and hair transplantation.

When it comes to PRP and other hair regrowth treatments, not all physicians are performing the same "recipe" or preparation. Instead of multiple, monthly injections the addition of extracellular matrix products, like ACell or BioD, seems to help results from Platelet Rich Plasma last longer and be stronger.

New pharmacy-compounded minoxidil preparations like Formula 82M reduce side effects of the over-the-counter Rogaine and generic versions. Less greasy and irritating, Formula 82M minoxidil is a strong hair growth treatment which contains ingredients which improve the penetration and efficacy of the minoxidil. 

The number of laser therapy devices available for patients have certainly increased dramatically over the years since we started with in-office laser therapy at Bauman Medical Group in 1999.  FDA-cleared laser hoods, clinical units, combs, hats, helmets and caps vary in cost, power and convenience. Savvy consumers will seek out powerful laser devices that are hands-free which sit underneath standard ball caps, hats, scarves or other headwear.  

Minimally-invasive hair transplant procedures, like NeoGraft FUE, are appropriate for women who want to lower their hairline, add density to their temple areas or frontal zones without the downtime, discomfort and restrictions of old-style linear harvesting requiring a scalpel, stitches or staples.

Using stem cells to grow new hair @sanfordburnham

 

Sanford-Burnham_HairCells3

 

 

 

Reportedly, research scientists at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute have used human stem cells to generate new hair growth. While this is not yet a cure that is "ready for prime time," it may be the first step in a successful stem cell based treatment that could provide unlimited hair for transplantation. This kind of cell therapy has yet to be tested or proven but staff (and patients) of Bauman Medical Group are excited to see if this develops into a viable baldness treatment. Congratulations to Dr. Terskikih and his team on this incredible breakthrough. [photo courtesy: Sanford-Burnham]

 

In a new study, Sanford-Burnham researchers have used human pluripotent stem cells to generate new hair. The study represents the first step toward the development of a cell-based treatment for people with hair loss. In the United States alone, more than 40 million men and 21 million women are affected by hair loss. The research was published online in PLOS ONE.
“We have developed a method using human pluripotent stem cells to create new cells capable of initiating human hair growth. The method is a marked improvement over current methods that rely on transplanting existing hair follicles from one part of the head to another,” said Alexey Terskikh, Ph.D., associate professor in the Development, Aging, and Regeneration Program. “Our stem cell method provides an unlimited source of cells from the patient for transplantation and isn’t limited by the availability of existing hair follicles.”
The research team developed a protocol that coaxed human pluripotent stem cells to become dermal papilla cells. They are a unique population of cells that regulate hair-follicle formation and growth cycle. Human dermal papilla cells on their own are not suitable for hair transplants because they cannot be obtained in necessary amounts and rapidly lose their ability to induce hair-follicle formation in culture.
“In adults, dermal papilla cells cannot be readily amplified outside of the body and they quickly lose their hair-inducing properties,” said Terskikh. “We developed a protocol to drive human pluripotent stem cells to differentiate into dermal papilla cells and confirmed their ability to induce hair growth when transplanted into mice.”

Beard Transplants Help Men with Stubble Trouble

 

One of our #beardtransplant patients was featured on the cover of the South Florida Sun Sentinel today. #cosmetic #surgery #trend baumanmedical.com

Beard Sideburn Facial Hair Transplant_DrAlanBauman

 

The decline of razor sales may be an indicator of the rise in popularity of growing a beard. Some raise the question whether "Hipsters" in NY are to blame for this popular trend, but we've seen a wide cross-section of men in South Florida looking to fill in gaps in their goatees, mustaches or beards, covers scars from plastic surgery (facelifts or cleft-palate), acne or facial injuries, Hasidic Jews seeking thicker peyot/sidelocks, and transgender patients completing their masculine transformation through thicker facial hair.

As one of the cosmetic surgery capitals of the world, South Florida and Boca Raton, FL specifically, at Bauman Medical Group we have seen a dramatic increase in requests for information about facial hair transplants over the past year and a spike in beard transplant surgeries from across the U.S.. This trend recently caught the attention of renowned shock-radio host, Howard Stern, who invited ABHRS-certified and IAHRS-accepted hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D. to discuss beard transplantation live on the air.

Advances in minimally-invasive hair transplant techinques like NeoGraft FUE, Follicular Unit Extraction, have allowed for the harvesting of hair follicles from the back of the scalp without the traditional--and invasive--scalpel & stitches process.  Less downtime, less pain, quicker recovery, fewer activity restrictions, and absolutely NO linear scar are some of the benefits of NeoGraft FUE approach.

Of course, aside from harvesting techniques and skill, Hair Transplantation and Beard Transplantation requires significant artistry on the part of the surgeon, so the end results look natural and not transplanted.

Prominent Hair Loss Expert Interviewed for New eBook, Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age

image from ecx.images-amazon.comProminent Hair Loss Expert Interviewed for New eBook, Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age
Dr. Alan Bauman discusses issues surrounding aging hair for the third installment of Dr. Barry Lycka’s Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today eBook series.

April 10, 2014

Boca Raton, FL – Forget wrinkles, it could be your hair that betrays your age. While unruly grays are the most known, and most obvious, there are six other signs of aging hair to watch out for—dryness, lackluster color, thinning, breakage, split ends, and frizz. And it doesn’t stop there, more than half of all women over 40 experience age-related hair loss or thinning.

To help women understand how aging effects their hair, Dr. Barry Lycka, author of the eBook series Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, teamed up with nationally recognized hair loss expert, Dr. Alan Bauman, for his third installment of the series. Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age discusses the struggles women face as their hair ages and offers tips and advice on how to keep your hair healthy and vibrant.

“It is no secret that our bodies change as we age - but many women overlook the impact aging has on their hair,” Bauman explained. “When our skin ages, we develop wrinkles, fine lines, and age-spots. Similarly, when our hair ages, we can see thinning through loss of density, diameter and damage that leads to breakage.”

The eBook isn’t the first collaboration between the two doctors; they frequently discuss new treatments and research on Dr. Lycka’s popular series, Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on WebTalk Radio. Some popular topics have been Aging Hair, Laser Therapy and PRP, Female Hair Loss & Menopause and minimally-invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplants.

“Today, women with aging hair can expect success with topicals, laser therapy, platelet rich plasma and new minimally-invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplants for scalp, eyelash and eyebrow loss without the need for stitches or linear scars,” explained Dr. Bauman.

Topics discussed in Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age include:

    •    Why female age related hair loss patterns are different from men
    •    Why and how hair ages
    •    How genetics play a role in hair loss as women age
    •    The facts about hormones, menopause and hair loss in women
    •    How stress, inflammation and nutrition affect women’s hair health
    •    How to restore damaged hair – straight or curly
    •    Why hair transplants for women have become a viable option.
    •    How new techniques are restoring thinning eyebrows and eyelashes
    •    What to expect from a physician when seeking hair loss treatment

Dr. Alan Bauman discussed beard hair transplants with Howard Stern

Prominent Hair Loss Expert Talks Beard Transplants, Celebrity Scruff with Howard Stern

Dr. Alan Bauman appeared on SiriusXM Radio’s Howard Stern Show to discuss rise in beard transplants.

   

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 13, 2014

Recent news of the increase in beard transplants has captivated the media, even catching the attention of Howard Stern’s popular radio show. Nationally prominent hair loss expert, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, was invited for a guest spot on the show on Tuesday, March 11, to discuss the phenomenon.

The hipster trend is largely credited for the increase, though the growing number of Hollywood stars sporting perfectly manicured beards and scruff has also contributed to the increased demand of the procedure.

Dr. Bauman discussed how the transplant works, and dished on which Hollywood stars have the most enviable facial hair. “Today's stars' facial hair may come and go... the most requested looks are still the iconic Tom Selleck 'stache and Elvis' sideburns,” Bauman revealed during the interview. South Florida Latinos are searching for the perfect machismo mustache or complete goatee.

Beard transplants, which cost around $7,000 or more, may seem extreme, but have become routine at Bauman Medical Group in recent years. “Like many clinics across the country, we’re seeing an increase in men opting to take advantage of the state-of-the-art technology that allows us to restore or enhance areas of facial hair,” explained Bauman. Bauman is no stranger to cosmetic transplants, he helped pioneer new eyelash transplant techniques in 2001.

In fact, despite beard transplants stealing the spotlight, eyelash transplants, hair transplants, as well as other body hair transplants are all on the rise.

About Beard Transplants and Other Transplant Trends:

  • Beard Transplants – The use of artistically-placed follicular units into a beard area can restore or enhance areas of facial hair that are lacking. Particular attention must be paid to the angle, orientation and position of each individual graft to achieve an aesthetically-pleasing result that looks 100% natural. Hair transplanted into the beard or mustache areas will need to be trimmed routinely, as the hair continues to live and grow naturally in the new location.
  • NeoGraft FUE: The "Cadillac" of transplants. The minimally-invasive NeoGraft device helps the surgical team extract hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp individually without the need for scalpel or stitches, leaving no linear scar. Recovery is faster, more comfortable and less restrictive. When properly performed, artistic hairline design using grafts of single follicles creates hair transplant results that truly defy detection.
  • Celebrity Hairlines - We’ve heard about women trying to get Angelina Jolie’s lips, but what about men who want Brad Pitt’s hairline? Believe it or not, celebrity hairlines are the latest trend in cosmetic surgery.
  • Eyebrow Transplants – Over-plucking the brows can cause follicular damage and permanent brow loss. A new microsurgical procedure can create new living, growing eyebrows; the procedure is also effective to cover scars.
  • Eyelash Transplants - Transplantation can be used to replace eyelashes that have been damaged by trauma, or to enhance existing eyelashes that are otherwise short and/or sparse. Dr. Bauman has perfected the art of eyelash transplantation, permanently transplanting literally dozens of living and growing follicles comfortably into each eyelid during the outpatient procedure.
  • Transgender Hair Transplants – Transgender hair restoration is an important aesthetic element to the gender male to female reassignment process. Hairline lowering, scar covering through transplantation are among the most requested transgender procedures.

Dr. Bauman has treated more than 15,000 hair loss sufferers since 1997 and is considered one of the world’s top medical experts on hair loss, having been regularly featured in the country’s leading print, radio and television media.

New Slideshow of South FL Celeb Radio DJ Greek NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant Results

West Palm Beach, Florid---He’s got swag, he’s got style, and according to the promo material on Clear Channel’s website for the radio show he front’s, Real Radio’s 94.3 “The Penthouse,” he “party’s like a rock star on south beach and Manhattan.” 

He goes by “Greek” and his dedicated base of South Florida radio fans follow him daily from 10 AM to 2 PM, where Greek breaks down the “worlds of entertainment and sports and teaches you how to date and even keep a Las Vegas show girl.” And while he definitely runs in celebrity circles and can be seen courtside from Miami to New York and Las Vegas laying down the “odds” during his Saturday radio show, “The Locker Room” what Greek’s missing in his fast-paced, high profile, livin’-large-lifestyle was just one thing, a full head of hair.

But all that changed after Greek hit Dr. Bauman’s surgical operatory where he received over 3,000 individually placed hair grafts (approximately 7,500 hair follicles) in October 2012 from Dr. Bauman who is recognized as one of the world’s top medical experts on hair loss. “This is the most sophisticated procedure being performed by one of the world’s best hair transplant doctors, Dr. Bauman is the only guy I’d let do anything like this on me,” says Greek, whose been one of South Florida’ leading radio personalities for 12 years. Kevin Rolston of the “KVJ” Radio Show Went First, now it’s Greeks Turn Dr. Bauman performed a hair transplant procedure on one of Greek’s radio colleagues, Kevin Rolston, an on air-personality on one of Clear Channel’s sister station’s, WILD 95.5. Rolston, the ring-leader of the “Kevin, Jason, Virginia” morning show.

In July 2012, Rolston met Dr. Bauman in his Boca Raton based operatory where his hair transplant procedure was broadcast live via the internet to a global audience of nearly 75,000 people in 22 countries and was simultaneously streamed on the radio station’s website for Kevin’s fans to watch. The surgery and its internet success was such a sensation the Sun Sentinel featured it as a full page story. Rolston also made national headlines in the radio industry as the first radio personality to get a hair transplant procedure live on the air. “I followed Kevins’ procedure very closely,” says Greek. “I know Kevin had been talking about getting a hair transplant for 13 years, and then he finally went and did it.”

Greek, known as a great odds maker and one of the nation’s best-known college football handicappers thought he’d hedge his own bet as well as his anxieties about any such procedure watching Rolston go through the process. “Kevin raved about Dr. Bauman,” says Greek, “he said it was painless and he was back at work on air the very next day, to me that is a great endorsement and that’s why I decided to do it.” "Right now, not a day goes by where I don't get stopped by someone asking me, 'What's different...?' The results are more than I expected, truly natural looking and full," says Greek, almost a year after his transplant procedure. "And the best part, I can wear my hair short, because with Dr. Bauman's NeoGraft FUE procedure, there's no scar to hide."
