LaserCap Restores Hair


BOCA RATON, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Skeptical about all of those hair regrowth products and treatments? You’re not alone. One women was about to give up and buy a wig. Then, she met a doctor who turned everything around with a novel treatment.

For years, Joan Chabrowe’s thinning hair made her self-conscious. She visited many offices and tried lots of things.

“I was trying orally, topically, electronically, all the methods that I could,” Chabrowe told Ivanhoe.

Chabrowe almost gave up, even after hearing about the LaserCap at Bauman Medical Group.  Like others, she thought it was a gimmick.

The LaserCap was the real deal.  Like its name, it’s a hat with lasers, worn for 30 minutes, every other day. It carries a hefty price tag of $3,000, but Chabrowe said it’s worth it.

“It increases energy production, it increases blood flow, and you’re going to get thicker, stronger, healthier hair over time,” explained Alan J. Bauman, M.D., a hair transplant surgeon in Boca Raton, Florida. (Read Full Interview)

Dr. Bauman said before trying anything, it’s important to really look into who is treating you and what their experience in hair restoration is.

“Find someone who does this every single day of the week,” said Dr. Bauman.

Today, looking at before and after pictures, Chabrowe is resting easy on a full head of hair.

“I am not embarrassed about bald patches or terribly thinning hair and if it’s for a special occasion, I’m able to get it blown out in a salon and it looks terrific,” detailed Chabrowe.

Dr. Bauman said it’s important to make sure your doctor is a member of a credentialed organization, like the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.

BACKGROUND: Hair loss is a chronic, progressive condition. Normally, people shed 50 to 100 hairs a day, but this usually goes unnoticed because hair is also growing at the same time. Hair loss occurs when the cycle between shedding and growing is disrupted, or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue. There is not an exact explanation for why hair loss occurs but some multiple possibilities exist. These are: heredity (family history), hormonal changes, medical conditions, medication, radiation therapy to the head or certain hairstyles.

TREATMENTS: Different types of treatment for hair loss are available. These can vary from: medications, surgery, laser therapy, wigs and hairpieces. A doctor may suggest a combination of these treatments in order to get the best results.  Some hair loss is permanent and some conditions, such as patchy alopecia, can be fixed without any treatment.

NEW TECHNOLOGY: The Bauman Medical Group, created by Dr. Alan J. Bauman, recommends a laser cap. Like its name, the laser cap is a discreet, drug-free, portable, FDA- approved hat with lasers that is worn for 30 minutes every other day. This cap increases energy production and blood flow, which enhances the growth of thicker, stronger and healthier hair over time. Compared to other life-long hair loss treatment options, the laser cap is one of the cheapest even with its $3,000 price-tag.
