Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
How early a person spots thinning hair determines how much hair they save. Those who wait until the hair loss is visible to the naked eye are too late - 50 percent is already gone.
Nationally recognized hair restoration expert Alan J. Bauman, M.D. will be a featured presenter at the Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness Expo 2012 at the Miami Convention Center on Saturday, February 25. Dr. Bauman’s multimedia presentation “How to Avoid a Hair Transplant™” will discuss safe and effective medical therapies proven to protect, enhance and restore hair growth in men and women.
“Although hair transplant technology has improved significantly in recent years, our first goal is always non-surgical intervention,” said Bauman, a board-certified hair restoration surgeon who is recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. “The goal of this talk is to teach prospective patients about the abundance of preventative care treatments, from low level lasers to FDA approved medications and nutritional supplements and how to better understand the hair loss process, including the importance of meeting with a board-certified hair restoration physician.”
Following the presentation, Bauman and his medical staff at Bauman Medical Group will demonstrate new technologies to treat and prevent hair loss. Several of Bauman’s patients will also be at the expo to share their personal experiences with hair loss and hair restoration.
“A variety of new treatments and technologies have recently become available that make hair loss prevention a real option for patients who are genetically predisposed to hair thinning,” said Bauman. “Although new minimally-invasive techniques in hair transplantation like Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE, is more comfortable and natural than ever, most patients want to reduce the amount of transplants required or avoid any type of surgical procedure altogether. In my presentation, I will discuss four important ways people can prevent hair loss, including the latest cutting-edge treatments and technologies that top hair restoration physicians provide.”
Here are Bauman’s four tips for avoiding a hair transplant:
- Know the Risk - New genetic tests, like HairDX™, can accurately predict the risk of hair loss for both men and women. These tests can help patients get started early on preventative treatments to reduce the chance of irreversible hair loss.
- Know the Damage - The only way a person can accurately measure the amount of hair loss or hair regrowth she is having is by using the HairCheck™ Trichometer. HairCheck™ gives a combined cross-sectional measurement of a bundle of hair. It is scientifically accurate, non-invasive, painless and takes literally less than five minutes.
- Know the Options – From hair vitamin supplements like Viviscal™ to laser therapy devices like the LaserCap™ to new powerful topical treatments prescription-based Formula 82M and possible future options like Latisse, consumers have more options than ever before to help them prevent, manage, and sometimes even reverse hair loss!
- Know Who to Talk To – If concerned about hair loss, it’s important to meet with a board-certified hair restoration physician. Hair loss is a specialized field in the medical community. That specialization is important, particularly when it comes to prescribing the right combination of therapies, tracking the results of a medical hair regrowth regimen and performing hair transplant surgery.
The Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness Expo is the first event of its kind to focus exclusively on patient education and safety for cosmetic procedures. The expo is aimed at educating the public on what they really need to know about cosmetic surgery by better informing them about the types of treatments available, their pros and cons, and the importance of choosing a well-qualified, experienced and board-certified doctor.
Over 40 doctors and health care companies will be at the expo to educate consumers. These include a variety of physicians, including plastic surgeons, dermatologists, cosmetic dentists, vascular specialists and anti-aging specialists. Over 1,500 people are expected to attend the event.
