Boca Raton, FL-
Hair loss is typically thought of as a man’s disease, but the truth is that women are almost just as at risk as men. In honor of Augusts National Hair Loss Awareness Month campaign, internationally recognized hair transplant surgeon Alan J. Bauman, M.D. is performing the first-ever live webcasted female hair transplant using the minimally-invasive NeoGraft/FUE technique on Wednesday, August 8.
Hair loss is a problem that affects more than 30 million American women, Dr. Bauman said. But, unlike male pattern hair loss which is more socially acceptable in our society, female hair loss is less understood and can lead to extreme emotional distress for those women who suffer from it. My goal with this live broadcast is to pierce the veil of secrecy surrounding womens hair loss and show women that theyre not alone, and that effective treatment options are available to help. Not all women have to undergo transplants; in many cases early preventative treatments can be used – like Formula 82M Minoxidil, Propecia® (for post-menopausal women), Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) with LaserCap and even scalp treatments with Latisse.
The bottom line here, is that female pattern hair loss is treatable, and its also preventable women just need to learn about their options, Bauman said.
