HairCheck & HairCoach on WPBF25 ABC News
ABC Television News Station WPBF Channel 25 in West Palm Beach recently reported on the HairCheck ™ device and Dr. Alan Bauman’s new Hair Coach program, which offers innovative solutions for hair loss sufferers, cosmetologists, salons and spas.
What is a HairCheck™?
HairCheck is a quick, non-invasive way to measure and track the amount of hair growing in a given area of the scalp (called the Hair Mass Index or “Hair Number”). The HairCheck device is a highly sensitive hand-held ‘trichometer,’ which scientifically measures hair caliber and hair density together and expresses them as a single number by compressing and measuring a defined hair bundle. It can also measure the percentage of hair breakage, which is a common cause of hair loss. Tracking these numbers can help determine the extent of hair loss and/or breakage and over time, allows the tracking of results from treatments.Dr. Bauman has performed over 3,000 HairCheck measurements since 2009 for his patients and recently presented a scientific abstract on HairCheck
at the ISHRS 20th Annual Scientific Meeting demonstrating the success of his prescribed hair restoration treatments using data obtained from using the device.Are you a cosmetologist or salon owner and want to help people who have hair loss or hair breakage by becoming a Certified Hair Coach™?

HairCam™ for Video scalp microscopy just got easier with Dr. Alan Bauman’s HairCam™. At the time of your in-office consultation or follow-up appointment, Dr. Bauman may use the HairCam™ to look at your hair and scalp using 30-80x magnification combined with a dual-polarized light source. The quality and quantity of hair growing from a given area of scalp can easily be evaluated within minutes. Using the iPhone’s on-board eight megapixel camera, high-resolution images can be obtained and transferred to your electronic medical record. At a future date, repeat high-resolution photos can be obtained from the same area of the scalp using a stereotactic scalp-mapping tool.Can HairCam™ predict hair loss?
No doctor or machine can predict hair loss with absolute certainty. However, in a person who has not begun any hair growth treatment, a high degree of miniaturized hairs in a given area of scalp could mean that hair density is at risk and the progression of hair loss is highly likely.Can HairCam™ tell if my hair growth treatment is working?
By comparing images taken in the same area of scalp over time,
density and hair caliber can be evaluated. When this information is correlated with other information such as Global Photography and HairCheck™ measurements, scientific conclusions can be drawn.Can I order my own HairCam™?
Actually, yes! Several versions of the HairCam™ are now available from Bauman Medical Group, ranging in price from $49 to $999. Please contact Email Dr. Bauman

Genetic Androgen Sensitivity testing in women can predict the likelihood of a postmenopausal woman’s response to finasteride/Propecia.NOTE: HairDX genetic test for ‘androgenetic alopecia’ (hereditary male and female pattern baldness) is a medical test. These tests should be performed under medical supervision in order to avoid contamination and ensure accurate results.
