South Florida hair transplant doctor Larry Shapiro presented a paper demonstrating how a nutritional supplement containing whey protein concentrate and other nutrients can make transplanted hair grow in more quickly, giving hair transplant patients faster results. At "The Next Big Thing: Hair Research and Advanced Live Surgery Workshop" in Istanbul, Turkey on May 14, hair transplant doctors heard about this breakthrough research for the first time. This new research is based on the theory that increased anabolic metabolism can affect regeneration of the hair follicle.
A hair transplant involves removing healthy hair follicles and placing them in balding areas of the scalp. The presentation examined how hair loss can be connected to lifestyle products, specifically anabolics that elevate testosterone and DHT. These products include growth hormones, steroids, weight gainers, creatine, and whey protein isolate.
Research on how whey protein isolate could possibly contribute to hair loss was presented. Whey protein isolate is the most common source of protein in workout products.
Dr. L. Shapiro's goal was to create a workout supplement that does not cause hair loss. He researched whey protein production and questioned whether processing whey protein concentrate into whey protein isolate could increase testosterone when ingested. Increased testosterone might contribute to hair loss in men who have the gene for male pattern balding.
As a substitute for whey protein isolate, the doctor used whey protein concentrate as the base for a nutritional supplement that would not contribute to hair loss. He researched minerals, traditional herbs, and vitamins that may enhance the hair. The result was his enhanced whey protein concentrate formulation called "Help Hair® Shake." This product is available from select South Florida Whole Food Market stores, helphair.com, shakemd.com and drshapiroshairinstitute.com.
Dr. L. Shapiro noticed when his patients took Help Hair Shake after a hair transplant, their transplanted hair grew in more quickly than he expected. Typically, there is a dormancy phase and hair transplant patients need to allow time for the hair to grow in -- usually nine months or more.
"This is a huge breakthrough in the field of hair transplantation," said Dr. Larry Shapiro. "Patients want faster results! Using Help Hair Shake results in faster regrowth. No one else has explored this aspect of hair transplantation."
A user study of 115 hair transplant subjects was conducted. Dr. Shapiro gave them Help Hair Shake to take twice daily after their hair transplant. The subjects taking Help Hair Shake had "significant" growth 12 weeks after their hair transplant. However, the control group had no significant growth at that time period. A follow-up study of 52 of these subjects showed most patients (89%) had complete growth 6 months after their hair transplant, while the controls took 9 months to have complete growth.
Hair transplant doctors from Australia, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, and Turkey have recognized the significance of Help Hair Shake for accelerating follicular restoration after a hair transplant. Combining a hair transplant with Help Hair Shake and Dr. Shapiro's low "anabolic profileSM" is called Accelerated Follicular Restoration™ (AFR™). Dr. Shapiro has offered to train these doctors to become AFR physicians so their hair transplant patients can have faster results.
Dr. Larry Shapiro is a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss treatment. He has been in practice since 1989 in the same South Florida locations and has performed over 11,000 hair transplant procedures. Dr. L. Shapiro was the first to do a "strip incision" and the first doctor in the Southern U.S. to specialize in "micro-mini grafts."
