Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today – Hair restoration: the latest use of PRP & laser therapy explained: Dr Lycka & Dr Bauman

Hair restoration is not like it used to be… as with other areas of cosmetic surgery & dermatology, hair restoration techniques and products have changed rapidly over the last few years, backed by scientific research. Hair loss affects a surprising number of men & women, and people can be vulnerable to falling prey to marketing hype and ‘quacks’ touting cures that just don’t work! So what is the answer? Once again, this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, your show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, welcomes back Dr Alan Bauman, hair restoration specialist from Boca Raton, Florida. Dr Bauman talks us through the very latest treatments for hair loss including the use of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and a low level laser therapy LaserCap which fits under a baseball cap. Both of these hair loss treatments stimulate existing but weak, thin & wispy hair to grow stronger & thicker. Dr Bauman also shares with us the importance of regular monitoring & measurement which proves whether hair really is growing back.
