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

image from

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.

Female Hair Loss Treatment on TheDoctors TV Show & Dr. Alan Bauman - Hair loss suffer, JoAnn, contacted The Doctors TV Show concerned about years of hair loss including shedding, loss of volume and coverage. Stress, heredity, medical conditions, medications, nutrition and many other factors can contribute to hair loss in women.  Today, hair loss specialists use a multitude of effective treatments to slow stop and reverse the hair loss process.  Weak hair, thinning hair, loss of volume or severe shedding are common problems. An abnormal amount of hair in the brush or drain can be signs that hair loss is occurring. Your local dermatologist may not have the time or treatments to offer. Full-time hair loss specialists, like ABHRS-certified Hair Restoration Physician, Dr. Alan Bauman are your best source of diagnosis, treatment and accurate tracking of your hair loss and hair regrowth status. Dr. Alan Bauman was invited on the Emmy Award winning show The Doctors to discuss low level laser therapy, a non-chemical, non-drug treatment for hair loss.

Low Level Laser Therapy is a non-chemical, non-drug, side-effect free way to improve hair growth. Laser therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other therapies such as PRP Platelet Rich Plasma, prescription topical medications (like Formula 82M), oral medications and supplements as well as no linear scar NeoGraft FUE hair transplants.

At Bauman Medical Group, we have successfully treated thousands of men and women with low level laser therapy since 1997.
For men and women suffering from thinning hair and hair loss, a full medical evaluation is recommended to determine genetic risks, medical conditions, nutritional status and other factors that influence hair growth.

Dr. Bauman also recommends obtaining scientific baseline trichometry measurements with the HairCheck cross-sectional hair bundle trichometer and HairCam dermoscopy for tracking purposes BEFORE starting any regimen.

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

The New York Times asks Dr. Alan Bauman about rejuvenating aging and thinning hair

Help for Hair When Aging Leaves it Thinning, Dry or Dull - New York Times 01-23-2014 by Alan J Bauman MD

Even though most women aren’t going bald in the same numbers as men, their tresses can start to thin, dry out and lack general oomph, especially after 40. But this cannot be treated, as complexions can, with moisturizers and trips to the spa. For one thing, there is the problem of styling. “As hair ages, we tend to torture it more, which makes matters worse,” said Dr. Alan J. Bauman, a physician in Boca Raton, Fla., specializing in hair restoration. “It’s not addressing the root of the problem.” The problem is what encases the actual hair root: the follicle. “The follicle function diminishes with age in proportion to hereditary risk,” Dr. Bauman said. He performs hair transplants as a last resort, when follicles, the organs that grow hair, cannot be resuscitated. But he said he was mostly concerned with keeping follicles alive and healthy. To nourish them, he recommends eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon and flaxseeds, as well as dark green vegetables, which are strong sources of vitamins A and C, needed by the follicles to produce sebum, hair’s natural conditioner. He also encourages eating eggs, beans and poultry. “You need protein for hair,” Dr. Bauman said. “If you’re starving yourself, your hair will suffer.”

Men's Health Magazine offers tips to halt male pattern hair loss

Mens Health Magazine 10/2013 - Dr. Alan Bauman discusses NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant by Alan J Bauman MD

If hair loss is "Your Mane Concern," as Men's Health Magazine describes, there are several preventative and restorative options you should consider. In this month's issue, hair loss expert Dr. Alan J. Bauman was tapped for his opinion regarding the top strategies for battling baldness. He describes non-invasive treatments like Propecia/Finasteride, Minoxidil (Formula 82M), Laser Therapy with LaserCap or Nutreve Personal Laser, as well as the least invasive hair transplant available: Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE. NeoGraft FUE heals faster and more comfortably with less activity restriction. FUE also completely avoids the linear scar left behind by old-style linear hair transplant procedures.

When can you expect to see results with LaserCap Laser Therapy?

When can you expect to 'see' results with Laser Therapy treatments like LaserCap?

Because hair fibers are produced from hair follicles at a growth rate of about 1cm per month, even with consistent use of Laser Therapy it can take six to twelve MONTHS to see visible changes in your hair in the mirror.  However, by using an accurate scientific measuring device like HairCheck which takes cross-sectional hair bundle (Hair Mass Index) measurements, it becomes easy to monitor your scalp's response to laser therapy in just a few weeks and track your improvement over time... before its noticeable to the naked eye. HairCheck measurements can be performed at Bauman Medical Group or by a Certified HairCoach near you.

Sometimes, one area of the scalp improves more than another… many patients ask "why?"  
The answer is that the improvement with Laser Therapy treatment with LaserCap will be proportional to the amount of weak hair in a given area.  The higher numbers of weaker hair follicles, the greater the improvement in Hair Mass Index. If the density in a given area is very weak, improvements will be less dramatic.  In addition, if the hair density and thickness is excellent in a given area of scalp, the improvement in that location will also be less dramatic.  It may seem counterintuitive, but just like other non-invasive treatments like Minoxidil (Formula 82M, etc.) and PRP+ACell, the response in each area will be proportional to the amount of hair that can be modulated or improved.  High-powered magnification of the scalp or Dermoscopy with a device like the HairCam can help your hair loss specialist determine which areas are likely to respond to non-invasive treatment and which areas will need minimally-invasive hair transplantation with NeoGraft FUE
At Bauman Medical Group, during your hair loss consultation Dr. Bauman will evaluate several areas of your scalp using HairCheck measurements and HairCam micro-dermoscopy and prescribe a treatment plan based on your hair loss status in each area and hair restoration goals.

Do you have a question about hair loss, laser therapy with LaserCap or another hair growth treatment? Dr. Bauman can answer your questions by email, phone or skype. Contact Dr. Bauman at

Hormone Replacement and Hair Loss

Managing hair loss during testosterone replacement Presented at the 2012 20th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine by hair loss expert Dr. Alan J. Bauman, this lecture focused on one of the possible side effects of androgen (testosterone) replacement therapy: Hair Loss. For those men who are prone to hereditary male pattern hair loss, androgen replacement with testosterone may accelerate the process of hereditary hair thinning and baldness.

Mechanisms of action, medical evaluations, HairCheck hair growth tracking and treatments such as oral medications like finasteride and dutasteride, topical treatments like minoxidil 82M, laser therapy with LaserCap, hair transplantation in addition to nutritional supplementation are all part of the medical management of androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male pattern baldness). Anti-aging physicians should discuss the possibility of hair loss side-effects from androgen replacement with their male patients to whom they might prescribe testosterone.

At Bauman Medical Group, we accept referrals from physicians who would like to partner with us in the medical management of their hair loss patients.Anti-Aging physicians can email or call 561-394-0024 to discuss and collaborate with ABHRS-certified and renowned hair loss physician, Dr. Alan J. Bauman.
