Bauman Medical Group offering new laser hair saving and restoration technique
For Immediate Release
April 1, 2002
Dr. Alan J. Bauman is offering area residents the very latest technique in hair loss prevention and restoration.
This new modality is a low-level laser therapy that helps save or restore hair. It is a safe, quick, non-invasive, non-chemical treatment that can potentially halt hair loss, and enhance the medical and surgical hair restoration treatments that Bauman Medical Group also provides.
Currently, the therapy is FDA approved for cosmetic use and there are no side effects. Dr. Bauman is the first hair restoration surgeon in the United States to offer this revolutionary modality, which has been used extensively in Europe, Australia, and the Far East.
He is founder and medical director of the Bauman Medical Group, a Boca Raton-based practice, which specializes in state-of-the-art hair restoration for men and women.
Dr. Bauman emphasizes that the low-level laser treatment is not a miracle cure nor is it for everyone.
“We carefully evaluate the hair loss situation of each patient to determine if the treatment may be beneficial,” he says, adding: “We also monitor the patient’s progress throughout the treatment.”
Among those who may benefit from the low-level laser treatment include men or women who are:
Experiencing hereditary (genetic) male or female pattern hair loss.
Expecting to be affected by male or female pattern hair loss.
Using prescription (Propecia) or non-prescription medication (such as Rogaine) as hair loss treatments.
Experiencing medication-associated hair loss from chemotherapy or other treatments.
Experiencing illness-related hair loss or scalp problems.
It is also effective with women who are experiencing or expect to experience post-partum hair loss. “The treatments are especially helpful in enhancing post operative healing, stimulating growth of hair follicles, and increasing circulation to the scalp,” says Dr. Bauman. Treatments are offered at the Bauman Medical Group headquarters in Boca Raton.
The low-level laser treatment is provided with what appears much like an old-fashioned hair dryer hood that fits over the head. It rotates and saturates the hair and scalp with red laser light.
“It’s a visible light wave,” says Dr. Bauman. “And unlike ultra-violet rays, it’s not mutagenic (cancer-causing).”
