Five Ways to Predict Hair Loss – From Dr. Alan Bauman

Posted by Admin, on May 15th, 2008, under TRICHOTALK

For those who love their hair, and want to keep it, top U.S. expert Dr. Alan Bauman offers five tips on how to predict future baldness.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) May 14, 2008 — Did you know that by the time hair loss becomes visible to the naked eye, you’ve already lost 50-percent of hair density?

“Early detection and prevention is the key to a lasting head-of-hair for both men and women,” said Alan J. Bauman, M.D., a board certified hair restoration physician and leading U.S. expert on male and female hair loss. “It’s important for everyone to learn about the medical causes of hair loss early on so they can keep healthy hair growing well into their golden years.”

While there’s no foolproof “crystal ball” for predicting hair loss, new medical information and genetic research have made it possible to determine a patient’s chances for experiencing hair loss later in life.

According to Dr. Bauman, who’s treated thousands of patients with hair loss over the last 10 years, there are five ways to “predict” future baldness:

1.   “Folliscope” – Because hair loss happens slowly and subtly over time, new technology, like the Folliscope, can provide a microscopic view of the scalp to determine the status of a patient’s hair follicles. Hair caliber and hair density can be measured and compared in different areas and over time. Taking a set of high-resolution “global” photos, or “medical mug-shots,” is also helpful for tracking hair changes year-by-year.
2.   “Health Factors” – In recent years, research has found that personal health factors like illness, smoking, stress, menopause, crash dieting, poor nutrition and certain types of medications are associated with hair loss.
3.   “Genetic Testing” – While the results are not like a pregnancy test (i.e., a ‘yes’ or ‘no’), a new genetic test by HairDX is a promising option for patients who want to know their risk of future hair loss. The analysis uses a simple cheek swab and can determine the genetic risk of developing male and female hair loss. The test should be performed under a doctor’s supervision and the results should be reviewed with a hair restoration physician who can help the patient interpret the results and weigh preventative treatment options.
4.   “Review Family History” – Contrary to popular belief, hair loss can be due to genetic factors from both sides of the family, so a good way to determine a patient’s chances for future hair loss is to examine relatives on both the mother and father’s side. Full-headed families are not completely out of the woods. However, patients who have a high number of close relatives with hair loss are more likely to experience it themselves.
5.    “See a Hair Doctor” – The best way for patients to assess their “hair status,” find reliable information about the medical causes of hair loss, and learn about safe, medically-proven treatments is to visit a board certified hair restoration physician. To find a qualified doctor who specializes in hair loss, visit or

Patients who meet with a hair restoration physician early on to review their own individual hair loss factors are much more likely to prevent future baldness, which may require more invasive interventions, like hair transplantation. Early non-invasive treatments – with FDA-approved medications like finasteride and minoxidil or low level laser therapy – are the key for those who want to keep a healthy head of hair in the years to come.

Hair Loss – Giovanni’s Story Part 2.

Posted by Gary Heron, on May 12th, 2008, under ALOPECIA AREATA, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED


Dear Gary

Because of you I am a happy man. At our first consultation, as you know, I was very down and miserable. Being a man, I thought that my gradual hair loss was normal for someone of my age.

When you explained the reasons of my hair loss to me, because of your expertise in these matters, you helped to alleviate my fears of losing all my hair.

After a few visits I began to realise that what you told me would happen, did happen, even though I took some convincing.

The products that you gave me to reverse my condition were easy to use and I had no problems following your instructions.

The results have been remarkable. I am ecstatic and my confidence has returned. I now have a luxuriant head of hair and no longer feel it is necessary to wear a hat in public.

Thank you for your empathy and support.

Yours sincerely

Giovanni  – a very happy man.

PS: Please do not forget the photographs – my friends do not believe me.

Alopecia Areata: Giovanni’s Story.(We Prove The NHS And His GP Wrong).

Posted by Gary Heron, on May 12th, 2008, under ALOPECIA AREATA, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED

Start of treament.

Giovanni came to us very depressed and completely disillusioned. He was suffering from alopecia areata, psoriasis, eczema and male pattern baldness due to age.

Giovanni came to us after his GP and the NHS had refused to advise him about any of his conditions because he was in his 70′s. 

All his GP and the NHS had to do was to refer him to a trichologist. 

Fortunately for Giovanni we had treated one of his close friends and he was pointed our way. 

The rest is his story:

What Are The Symptoms Of Alopecia Areata?

Posted by Gary Heron, on May 9th, 2008, under ALOPECIA AREATA

The typical pattern is for one or more bald patches to appear on the scalp. These tend to be round in shape, and about the size of a large coin. They develop quite quickly. A relative, friend, or hairdresser may be the first person to notice the bald patch or patches. Apart from the bald patch or patches, the scalp usually looks healthy and there is no scarring. Occasionally, there is some mild redness, mild scaling, mild burning, or a slight itchy feeling on the bald patches.

When a bald patch first develops, it is difficult to predict how it will progress. The following are the main ways it may progress.

Quite often the bald patch or patches re-grow hair within a few months. If hair grows back it may not have its usual colour at first and looks grey or white for a while. The usual colour eventually returns after several months.

Sometimes one or more bald patches develop a few weeks after the first one. Sometimes the first bald patch is re-growing hair whilst a new bald patch is developing. It can then appear as if small bald patches rotate around different areas of the scalp over time.

Sometimes several small bald patches develop and merge into a larger bald area.

Patches of body hair, beard, eyebrows, or eyelashes may be affected in some cases.

Large bald patches develop in some people. Some people lose all their scalp hair. This is called alopecia totalis.

In a small number of cases, all scalp hair, body hair, beard, eyebrows, and eyelashes are lost. This is called alopecia universalis.

The nails are affected in about 1 in 5 cases and can become pitted or ridged.

Some people become self-conscious, anxious or distressed by the appearance of the hair loss.
