Hair Loss Expert Dr. Bauman To Discuss LaserCap on Lifetime's Suzanne Show


Dr. Alan J. Bauman will discuss hair loss and advancements in low-level laser therapy with Suzanne Somers on October 3rd.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

On Wednesday, October 3rd, Suzanne Somers, the eponymous host of Lifetime Channel’s, The Suzanne Show will be discussing hair loss and new alternative treatments for patients with nationally prominent hair restoration expert, Dr. Alan. J. Bauman.

The new talk show, featuring Suzanne Somers, who is known in the medical community as a passionate healthcare advocate, will include health tips, wide ranging education segments, and discussions on top critical health issues. Since over 50 million American men and 30 million women suffer from hair loss, and spend over $2 billion each year on treatments, the topic is a natural fit for the show, which focuses on educating viewers on how to live a healthy, full and ageless life.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to discuss hair loss with The Suzanne Show and hope that viewers are empowered by the new drug-free and non-invasive technologies available to treat and prevent hair loss,” said Dr. Bauman, who has treated more than 15,000 hair loss suffers since 1997. “Our goal is to help consumers understand that hair loss is no longer inevitable,” says Dr. Bauman who points out on the show that there exists a wide range of non-invasive treatment options for the millions of men and women who suffer from hair loss.

The Suzanne Show strategically partners with physicians and health experts who share Suzanne’s beliefs in progressive medicine and integrative health therapies. When Dr. Alan Bauman had the opportunity to meet Suzanne Somers at a major international medical conference, they discussed his holistic, multi-therapy approach to the treatment of hair loss that meshed, according to Dr. Bauman, “perfectly with Suzanne’s philosophy and direction of the show.” Says, Dr. Bauman, “Suzanne and I both agreed that her audience would appreciate the benefits of this new advanced technology as a way to treat hair loss.”

As a nationally recognized expert in the field of hair restoration, Dr. Bauman will discuss the drug-free LaserCap, the first device of its kind and the latest breakthrough in laser therapy for the scalp. The "hands-free” device offers the power of a clinical laser therapy unit in a cordless, rechargeable, discreet treatment device that literally 'fits under your hat' for non-chemical, non-invasive, pain-free treatment almost anywhere, anytime.

“The LaserCap is unique among low level laser therapy devices because it doesn't require the patient to stand in front of a mirror for 10-15 minutes, manually 'combing' the area, as with hand-held comb lasers,” commented Bauman. “This is an exciting new tool for hair loss sufferers as it allows them a discreet treatment option that can easily be combined with exercise, work or even grocery shopping. And it works.”

In recent years, low-level laser therapy has become more accepted in the treatment of hair loss, evidenced by FDA clearances of one specific brand of comb-laser, an in-office clinical device and a dramatic increase in prescriptions by hair restoration physicians.

“Laser therapy has become a valuable tool for patients with hair loss, and allows patients a drug-free and side effect-free option,” explained Bauman, who has treated thousands of patients with laser therapy in his Boca Raton, FL offices for more than ten years.

About LaserCap and Low Level Laser Therapy:

  • Laser therapy is a non-chemical, non-invasive way to help men and women grow thicker and healthier looking hair.
  • LaserCap fits into and under any hat, which when put on, gives patients complete coverage of their scalp.
  • LaserCap has over 220 diodes, making it the most powerful portable laser therapy device for the scalp.
  • In addition to LaserCap, there are numerous other products currently out on the market, such as laser combs and brushes, helmets and in-office clinical laser 'hoods.'

Laser therapy, like other non-invasive hair growth treatments, is no ‘miracle cure,’ but it is an important tool in the treatment of damaged hair, thinning hair and hair loss.

To learn more about the LaserCap and to watch a live demonstration, tune in on Wednesday, October 3rd at 7 a.m. on the Lifetime Channel. For more information on The Suzanne Show, or to enter the show’s ultimate health giveaway, visit the show’s website at http://www.thesuzanneshow.tv.

LaserCap low level laser therapy for hair featured on ABC The View


 LaserCap™, The Portable Low-Level Laser Device for Thinning Hair, was featured on ABC's Emmy® Award winning talk show, The View
Renown LaserCap™ physician, Dr. Doris Day, was interviewed by Barbara Walters & Elisabeth Hasselbeck, during Hair Loss Awareness Month on ways women can fight hair loss.

MIAMI, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, August 3rd,  LaserCap™ physician and New York-based dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day, appeared on ABC's Daytime Emmy® Award winning talk show, The View, presenting the LaserCap™ device to millions of television viewers across America. Barbara Walters and Elisabeth Hasselbeck interviewed Dr. Day.
In the segment, Dr. Day discusses the different types of hair loss in women and the ways that they can fight hair loss - from cortisone injections on the scalp to the LaserCap™ for home use.
Doris Day, MD, is a board certified dermatologist who specializes in laser, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology on the Upper East Side in New York City. Her private practice includes national and international celebrities.
Dr. Day speaks highly of LaserCap™: "What I love about this is that it treats the whole scalp at once in twenty minutes.*"
August is Hair Loss Awareness Month in the United States. Dr. Day reported that there are nearly 30 million women who suffer from hair loss.
The LaserCap™ ground-breaking device uses low level laser light to stimulate hair growth for hair loss at levels never before seen for at-home use. The device is hands-free, completely portable and easy to use, fits comfortably in almost any hat, is convenient and discreet, and can be used at home or on-the-go. The device is medically managed, and is only available through a licensed physician, but there are no weekly trips back to the doctor's office required (as in the case of the less powerful laser hood devices**).
*The recommended time for usage is 30-60 minutes every other day, but this may vary according to physician instructions.
LaserCap™ was created by Michael Rabin, MD, in collaboration with internationally recognized hair restoration surgeon, Robert Haber, MD, Harvard-based photomedicine expert, Michael Hamblin, PhD, and MIT-trained optical physicist David Smith, PhD. The LaserCap™ offers patients the low level laser power of an in-office clinical unit in the comfort of their home. It features 224 individual 650nm 5mW lasers in a flexible, hermetically-sealed dome-shaped membrane that fits comfortably in almost any hat, and is powered by a small belt-clip battery pack.
The LaserCap™ has not yet been cleared by the FDA as the FDA clearance process takes some time; however there are two laser devices that have received FDA clearance for hair re-growth, a hand-held comb-like device with 9 lasers for men and an in-office laser hood with 90 lasers for women. LaserCap™, with 224 lasers uses the same laser as both these devices.
LaserCap™ Founder and Co-Inventor, Dr. Michael Rabin: "We've been getting fantastic results. It slows the loss, stops it, reverses it in almost every patient."
Its ease of use leads to better efficacy and thus better results than other LLLT treatments because the treatment protocol is easy to follow.
"The LaserCap™ maximizes patient compliance since it is worn under any head cover (baseball cap, scarf, etc.) and is completely portable...higher dosimetry combined with consistent regular use (i.e., patient compliance) may be essential for effectiveness," said Robert Haber, MD, respected hair restoration surgeon and president of LaserCap Co.
Thinning hair is a condition that affects up to 50% of adult women and 80% of adult men. Thousands of LaserCap™ kits have been sold in countries across the world such as  USA, Australia, Brazil, Dubai, India, Italy, Kuwait, South Africa, Sweden, Venezuela, Dominican Republic.
**Leading In-Office Laser Hood Device has only 82 lasers, compared to LaserCap's 224. LaserCap's total laser output us 1120 mw compared to the leading In-Office Laser hood device which outputs 410 mw of laser.

Bauman Medical Group is proud to be amongst the first physicians worldwide to offer LaserCap low level laser therapy. Track your results from LaserCap using the patented, scientific measurement tool called HairCheck(TM).  HairCheck(TM) measurements are recommended before starting any hair regrowth treatment regimen.

Hair Apparent: Steve's Restorative Treatments Are Working - Palm Beach Post

Hair apparent: Restorative treatments are working!

This is Steve’s hairline after a little more than two months of restorative treatment.

By Steve Dorfman

I admit it: I was skeptical (partly by nature, partly by profession).

When I wrote in May about beginning a non-invasive hair-restoration program under the (pro bono) care of Boca Raton hair-restoration specialist Dr. Alan Bauman (baumanmedical.com), I wasn’t expecting much.

Sure, the good doctor had knowingly remarked at the end of my evaluation, “I think you’ll eventually be very pleased with the results” — after putting me on a protocol that included topical application of his uniquely compounded form of Minoxidil-82M, combined with the daily ingestion of hair-growth supplements and thrice-weekly laser-light therapy with LaserCap.

But, at most, I figured that a few wispy new strands might start popping up four, five, six months down the road in the severely thinning areas — at the hairline, and along the temples.

Certainly, though, nothing to get excited about — and definitely not anytime soon.

I must say: I don’t know if I’ve ever been happier to be so wrong.

Noticeable difference

As Dr. Bauman had explained to me, the first goal in any hair-growth restoration treatment is “to preserve the hair you already have.”

Even though I’ve yet to visit Dr. Bauman’s office yet for my three-month progress report (during which my hair volume and growth rate will be measured via state-of-the-art technology), this much I feel secure in reporting:

Just like the Russian Army at Stalingrad, my previously thinning, receding hairline has finally stopped retreating.

Even better — and to extend the World War II analogy —they’ve gone on the attack!

Yes, those tiny follicular soldiers have definitely taken a stand, responding to treatment by regrouping, literally and figuratively. The indisputable proof is in these photos.

Not only is the hairline (and surrounding area) looking thicker, but the increased density also makes the color appear darker.

When friends and colleagues had learned of my restoration efforts, all had remarked that my hair loss hadn’t appeared noticeable to them.

However, that’s exactly why, if hair retention is important to you, the time to start a restoration program is at the first sign of any deterioration.

While the old-school side of me wanted to shrug off caring about my thinning dome, I’m glad I allowed my more metrosexual tendencies to guide me on this one.

And, it turns out I’m not alone: Last week, The Los Angeles Times reported that men’s grooming products make up the fastest-growing segment in the beauty/cosmetics industry (one rule, though: Nothing targeted at men can be called “makeup”).

I doubt I’ll ever spend much (read: any) time or money adopting a skin-care regimen — but, then again, there was a time I would’ve said the same thing about hair restoration.



"Steve's response to treatment is not unexpected.  Taking early action, before his follicles were 'dead and gone' was the correct step.  Using non-invasive treatments like Minoxidil-82M, LaserCap, nutritonals, etc. we were able to improve his hair quality: thicker, healthier, longer, darker, etc. in the area of treatment. He will likely NEVER need a hair transplant if he continues treatment." --Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D.  Diplomate, American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.
