Treatments for Women’s Hair Loss highlighted as part of Hair Loss Awareness Month
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2014 -- In the US, August 2014 is National Hair Loss Awareness Month and as part of that event, the very latest and innovative developments for hair loss treatment and hair restoration for women are being discussed on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net.
Show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, welcomes once again popular repeat guest Dr Alan Bauman, board certified hair restoration physician, and renowned hair transplant surgeon from Boca Raton, Florida.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Bauman starts by highlighting the general problem of hair loss in women and the importance of being firstly reassured, and then secondly, receiving an accurate diagnosis and measurement of the hair loss situation, at the start of treatment and over time. The two doctors then discuss the different hair loss treatments that are available to women, starting from topical and oral medications, and including low level laser light therapy from a ‘use at home’ device known as the LaserCap. They move on to how PRP Platelet Rich Plasma is being used to achieve excellent results in promoting hair growth and a strong rejuvenation of hair quality.
The ‘gold standard’ method for harvesting hair follicles for hair transplantation known as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is explained along with the benefits to patients from that procedure. Finally, Dr Bauman outlines two future developments in hair loss that will take some years yet to come to fruition; hair cloning and bio-engineering of the hair follicle.
