BREAKING NEWS: Zerona Laser gets FDA-approval for body-slimming and inch loss

8/31/2010  Boca Raton, FL

Today, the FDA has announced that the Zerona Laser (aka Erchonia ML Scanner) has demonstrated safety and efficacy as a non-invasive body-contouring, fat-loss and inch-loss treatment and has awarded the Zerona (Erchonia, TX) with its 510(K) Class II device approval: K082609.

"I'm not surprised by this news," said Dr. Alan Bauman, phototherapy expert and cosmetic surgeon in Boca Raton, Florida. "We've used Zerona, to help our patients lose hundreds of inches with for over three years without the pain, risk or downtime associated with surgery."

The FDA also went so far as to describe the non-invasive Zerona's mechanism of action... "disruption of the adipocyte cells within the fat layer for the release of fat and lipids from these cells for non-invasive aesthetic use" and as a Class II device: "Low Level Laser System for Aesthetic Use."

Typical results are the loss of three to nine inches of total combined circumference over the course of two weeks of treatment.  Treatments are applied for twenty minutes on each side of the body, approximately every other day for two to three weeks.

Zerona treatments are available at Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton Florida.

Greg Benson (MediocreFilms) NeoGraft Hair Transplant Update, new video + photos

In November of 2009, Greg Benson's hair transplant made history.  First, by becoming the most widely-viewed LIVE hair transplant surgery webcast in history, and also because the procedure entailed the transplantation of over 3300 FUE-type follicular-unit grafts using the NeoGraft FUE device--the largest procedure performed with the most-advanced minimally-invasive device on record.  During the procedure, Benson 'tweeted' status updates during his procedure and SKYPE'd with consumer hair loss advocate, Spencer Kobren (TheBaldTruth).

Before his procedure, Greg vlogged about his hair loss and 'Going Bald' with his YouTube fans and why he was going to have the procedure. Afterwards, he made a light-hearted video of his procedure called "Hair Transplant FUN!?" and also filmed a three-part interview with Dr. Alan Bauman:

"How to Get a Hair Transplant 1,"  "How to Get a Hair Transplant 2" and "How to Get a Hair Transplant 3"

Last week, he posted a video update "How's Your Hair!?" about his hair transplant progress so far (which is about 75% of the final cosmetic result).

In accordance with the initial treatment plan which called for approximately two procedures, this week (August 27, 2010) Greg visited Dr. Alan Bauman in Boca Raton, FL for some additional density in the frontal area using the NeoGraft/FUE.  Currently at nine months post-op from his initial procedure, Greg is seen here in these photos of his NeoGraft hair transplant results with approximately 75% of the visible results from the initial session.

Stay tuned for more information and be sure to tune in tonight to The Bald Truth with Spencer Kobren who will be interviewing Greg Benson and Dr. Alan Bauman live on the air tonight (Sunday 8/29) at 8E/5P.

Laser Therapy for Hair featured on "The Doctors"

American Health and Beauty Reports on the HairMax Laser Comb which appeared on The Doctors TV show and answers the question "Can the LaserComb help reduce hair loss and enhance hair growth?"

The different wavelengths of coherent, "low level" laser light have been shown to have positive effects on the body with a variety of applications, including enhancing wound healing, reducing chronic pain, body slimming, facial rejuvenation as well as hair growth.  FDA clearances have been issued for devices that satisfy the FDA's clinical trial requirements for effectiveness.

For over ten years at Bauman Medical Group, we've used phototherapy and low level laser therapy to help our patients heal faster and more comfortably from hair transplant surgery as well as grow thicker, fuller and healthier heads of hair--all without side effects or discomfort.  Devices within our Laser Spa have changed and improved (much like cellphones) over the past decade--increasing from just a handful of laser diodes to portable, cordless, 100% hands-free devices which provide total scalp coverage like the LaserCap.

These new portable LaserCap units are making laser therapy easier for patients and more convenient than ever before.   And we've noticed, much like many other treatments, the easier the laser therapy treatment is to do, the better the results!

The cordless, rechargeable and hands-free LaserCap covers the entire scalp with 224 high-quality laser diodes--safely deliver the phototherapy to the scalp all underneath a standard baseball cap!   Users can wear the device while sitting and answering email, surfing the web or even while being active like jogging or walking.  There is typlically no sensation in the scalp being treated with the laser therapy except a mild warmth from the unit.   Keep in mind that the effects of low level laser therapy are not related to the thermal (heat) effect.

The rechargeable battery pack is small enough to fit inside your shirt pocket or clip on your belt.

With no cords to "tie you down" and nothing to aim or wave over the scalp, LaserCap is breakthrough laser technology for at-home hair improvement.

LaserCap is available only from physicians and Bauman Medical Group is proud to be an authorized distributor.  For more information on whether you would receive benefit from the LaserCap, speak to a board-certified hair restoration physician familiar with laser therapy.

At Bauman Medical Group we provide training on how to use the laser cap and tracking to ensure you are recieving the the best possible results.
