Prominent 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
