May 21, 2012 - Annual Meeting of the American Hair Loss Council, Ft. Lauderdale FL

Dr. Alan J. Bauman was asked to present on the topic of "The Medical Management of Hair Loss" at the Annual Meeting of the American Hair Loss Council in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Dr. Bauman is a Certified Faculty Member of the American Hair Loss Council and has been a long standing participant in American Hair Loss Council Meetings and events for over ten years.

The lecture "Managing Hair Loss" gives insight (in a brief overview format) to the various ways doctors can medically evaluate, treat and monitor hair loss and hair regrowth. From diagnostic tools like HairCheck, HairCam and Genetic Hair Loss Testing, to FDA-approved medications and devices, to the latest minimally-invasive FUE/NeoGraft hair transplant techniques to permanently restore hair, to haircare/styling products, to cosmetic options like extensions, wigs and weaves, there are many ways physicians and others in the field of hair replacement can work together to help their patients and clients achieve their goals.

How often should you perform HairCheck measurements?
When are the results of medical treatments or hair transplants fully visible?
What is the difference between linear/"strip harvest" hair transplants and minimally-invasive FUE/NeoGraft?
How soon can patients return to athletic activity after a linear/strip harvest hair transplant?
How soon can patients return to athletic activity after an FUE/NeoGraft hair transplant?
Are there herbal alternatives to medical hair loss treatments?
What kind of laser therapy device gives the best overall coverage of the scalp?
When will future treatments like 'hair cloning' become available?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer for every hair loss patient. For more information on how Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D. can help hair replacement professionals take better care of their clients, please contact Liz Ashe, Director of Patient Education at Bauman Medical Group (patienteducation@baumanmedical.com) or email Dr. Bauman directly at doctorb@baumanmedical.com
