Good Advice: How To Medically Restore Your Hair


By Dr. Alan. J. Bauman, M.D., A.B.H.R.S. – Jan/Feb 2017  Simply The Best Magazine

Hairline receding? Seeing more scalp shining through? If you answered ‘yes’ then you are one of the nearly 80 million Americans having to deal with aging hair and hair loss. As a progressive condition, hair loss can make us look and feel older and while hair loss is mainly genetic, there are a variety of lifestyle and environmental factors that determine how quickly our hair changes over time.

Hair loss can certainly be a negative and even depressing aspect of the aging process, but now, thanks to a range of tools and treatments, it’s no longer something we have to live with, hide or stress about. In most cases, hair loss is a treatable condition that you can control. Restoring and regrowing hair can help you feel more youthful and sexy, while also contributing to your overall happiness and self-confidence.

This New Year, if you’d like to ‘turn back the clock’ on your aging, thinning hair, then be sure to follow this list of hair loss treatments:

Topical and Oral Treatments:

Beyond the sometimes messy over-the-counter Rogaine, new treatments available include compounded minoxidil Formula 82M and Latisse/Bimatoprost. A good  Finasteride-based option is the specially compounded oral prescription product FinPlus.

Laser Hair Therapy:

FDA-cleared low- level lasers for hair regrowth are a key weapon in the battle against thinning. Easy to use and proven to improve hair thickness and quality, lasers are a powerful option for hair loss.

Nutritionals & Vitamins:

Hair vitamins and supplements, like Viviscal Professional, Nutrafol and “SuperBiotin” can help your hair to become stronger, fuller and shinier.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP):

PRP is made up of your body’s own natural growth factors which are locked within the platelets in our blood. This natural ‘cocktail’ is collected, concentrated and then carefully redirected by a physician during a brief and simple ‘lunch-hour’ procedure into the areas of hair loss to stimulate hair regrowth and get a more beautiful head of hair.

Minimally Invasive FUE Hair Transplant Surgery:

The latest no-scalpel/no- stitch harvesting techniques like NeoGraft FUE and ARTAS robotic-assisted transplants can bring new, living and growing hair to any and all bare areas on your scalp. Comfortable, no-linear-scar FUE procedures mean less downtime when compared to old-style strip harvesting and are never, ever “pluggy.”

Hair & Scalp Cranial Prosthesis:

For those who are not candidates for hair transplantation due to autoimmune alopecias, scalp burns, scars or injuries or hair loss due to chemotherapy, a medical-grade hair and scalp pros- thesis made with 3D printed technology can be an effective option. This life-changing system called ‘CNC’ is made in Italy by CRLAB and is now available in North America.

Men and women who are having problems with their hair should contact an experienced hair restoration physician who can help determine the most effective treatment regimen for their specific needs.
