IHSMC - Int'l Hair Surgery Masters Class 2012 Photo Slideshow

On October 13, 2012 renowned hair transplant surgeon and Course Director, Dr. Pierre Bouhanna, hosted the second International Hair Surgery Master Class (IHSMC) meeting in Paris, France in conjunction with the 8th European Masters of Anti-Aging Medicine Congress (EMAA).  In attendance were well over 100 physicians and hair loss experts who listened to a potpourri of lectures on the latest information on the medical and surgical treatment of hair loss.  Lectures included the psychological impact of hair loss, basics of medical treatments such as minoxidil, finasteride, laser therapy and nutrition, as well as the latest in hair transplantation techniques and procedures.  It was a “quick trip” but one with a well-respected international expert faculty and lots of new information on the treatment of hair loss.  A few short hours of Paris sightseeing was possible the day before and the evening after the conference was over.

Dr. Alan J. Bauman presented lectures on a variety of topics including minimally-invasive FUE using NeoGraft (aka S.A.F.E.R. by Medicamat), FUE hair transplant trends, low level laser therapy and hair regrowth (Nutreve and Laser Cap) as well as his protocols for large sessions of FUE transplantation (MEGA-FUE).

 

 


Is Formula 82M better than Rogaine?

Scan the reviews for Rogaine (minoxidil) and the complaints are not hard to find:  too greasy, too messy, sticky, irritating, flaking skin, inflammation, dermatitis, difficult to use, etc. 

Clever cosmetic chemists have figured out how to reduce the side effects of minoxidil through the use of pharmacy compounding.  This new compounded mixture, called Formula 82M, is available through prescription only.  That means your doctor cannot simply write a prescription for Formula 82M and send you down to the local pharmacy. 

Our patients have noticed that Formula82M minoxidil goes on drier and is less irritating than the standard minoxidil/rogaine solutions found over the counter.  Because there are fewer side effects, patients tend to be more compliant. That means that they use the product more often and stay on the regimen long enough to see the benefits.  Even the new, droptainer bottle makes it easier to apply than rogaine foam.

At Bauman Medical Group, we recommend HairCheck measurements every 90 days to track the regrowth of hair and the maintenance of the existing hair.  Patients should use minoxidil Formula 82M by applying approximately 15 drops twice a day to the scalp.

Eyebrow Restoration Transplantation Results Photo Slideshow

Male eyebrow transplant patient, Michael K., is seen here before and six months after his eyebrow transplant. The results will continue to improve for several more months.  You can see the healing phase (scabbing and crusting) which lasts about seven days (1 week) before the eyebrow area returns to normal.  Hair follicles can be individually harvested using the minimally-invasive no-scalpel, no-stitch, no-linear scar, FUE NeoGraft process to obtain the hair follicles for transplantation.  The end result is permanent, living and growing eyebrows that need to be trimmed on a routine basis.  For more information about eyebrow transplantation in men or women, please visit www.baumanmedical.com
