Low Dose Oral Minoxidil for Hair Regrowth

Low Dose Oral Minoxidil for Hair Regrowth

Recently, interest has significantly increased regarding low-dose minoxidil after news articles appeared in NY Times entitled “An Old Medicine Grows New Hair…” and in GQ, “What Guys With Thinning Hair Should Know About Off-Label Hair Growth Prescriptions,” as well as on local and national broadcast TV news, such as WPLG Local 10 Miami Oral Minoxidil.

Many years ago, reports of off-label low-dose minoxidil for hair regrowth were shared amongst Hair Restoration Physicians--doctors who specialize in the treatment of hair loss--and later, peer-reviewed research articles began to appear in the clinical literature. Some of the small minority of doctors specializing in hair loss worldwide, like Dr Alan Bauman, have prescribed minoxidil orally off-label in “micro” or low-dose formats for many years.

To find out if low dose oral minoxidil is right for your hair loss situation and hair regrowth goals, visit

Robb [Report] Recommends TURBO LaserCap - "Best on the Market" for Hair Growth

Robb [Report] Recommends Bauman TURBO LaserCap - "Best on the Market" for Hair Growth

"Can Lasers REALLY Help Grow Hair?" is something I have heard for man years in my #hairloss practice, but thankfully less often these days. However, many of my patients are still surprised to learn that, yes, we've been using side-effect-free and chemical-free LLLT Low-Level Laser Therapy to help hair growth for well over 24 years at Bauman Medical Hair Transplant and Hair Loss Treatment Center! (I installed my first in-office laser therapy device in 1999.) From laser hoods to laser combs to laser brushes to cheap, clunky laser helmets and laser caps, I've seen it all and tried it all. We've personally helped thousands of hair loss patients dating back to the time before the FDA's nod that the treatment worked for hair growth and when skepticism regarding LLLT For Hair Growth was at an all-time high (search up "Hair Loss Laser Debate w/ Bauman" for some fun).

Today, the meta-analysis of previously published clinical trial evidence for laser therapy and hair growth in the literature has finally silenced most if not all of the physician skeptics, but there's still a lot of work to be done regarding explaining the dosing strategy (how much? how often?). When it comes to Photobiomodulation--the newer, more technically correct term for LLLT-- there's always more to learn and improve upon. The good news is that the "OG" of lasercaps, The LaserCap Company, and its visionary physician-inventor and founder, Dr. Michael Rabin, MD, MBA, have continued to listen to patients and physicians and continued to innovate and improve the devices.

A few years back, we helped design and launch the Bauman TURBO LaserCap, and it was quickly lauded by AskMen and received its first accolade: The Best Hair Restoration Innovation of the Year. Later, health guru and biohacker Dave Asprey adopted the TURBO as his go-to laser for hair growth. Today I'm proud to announce that Robb Report's "Robb Recommends" has now also taken the time to test and review the device extensively and has published their glowing opinion on the Turbo LaserCap, "the best on the market," and all of its unique features.

Congratulations to all involved in this latest news, but more importantly, we are all excited for the many patients out there with hair loss and hair thinning who will be benefiting from this best-in-class hair growth device, all without the risk of side effects!

Exosome Market Report 2022 from BioInformant

The Global Exosome Market - Market Size, Forecast, Trials and Trends 2022

by Cade Hildreth (BioInformant) @StemCellMarket

original article: https://bioinformant.com/product/exosome-market-report/

Exosome Market Size | Exosome Market Report

Market Report, 312 Pages, May 2022

Exosomes are extracellular vesicles (EVs) of endosomal origin that range in size between 30 and 150 nanometers. Exosomes are secreted by a wide range of cells, since virtually all living cells utilize exosome-mediated communication. Exosomes carry cell-specific cargos of proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids that are selectively taken up by recipient cells.

Exosome technologies have been developing rapidly in recent years and substantial growth is expected for the market as they get integrated into the fields of liquid biopsy, precision medicine and regenerative medicine. In particular, cancer derived exosomes influence the invasive potential of cells by regulating angiogenesis, metastasis, and immunity, making them an extremely useful source of biomarkers for use in cancer detection, diagnosis, and therapeutic selection.

The cargo contained within exosomes can offer prognostic information for range of diseases—including cardiovascular, renal, neurodegenerative, and metabolic diseases—as well as cancer.  Researchers investigating exosome biomarkers have discovered, identified, and reported the presence of hundreds of biomolecules within the lumen of exosomes. This discovery has compelled a rapid rise in exosome-related cancer biomarker research, including the use of exosomes for the detection, monitoring, and treatment of a diverse range of oncologic conditions.

Importantly, exosomes are present within a diverse range of biofluids, including serum, plasma, urine, seminal fluid, CSF, saliva, tears and breast milk. For this reason, exosome-based diagnostics are minimally invasive, offering ease of use and speed of detection. Exosomes can also act as prognostic indicators and predictors of a patient’s response to a specific course of treatment.

Exosomes are also being explored for their use as cell-free therapeutics. For example, if a patient has a disease caused by a missing or defective protein or microRNA, the patient’s exosomes can be isolated, modified with the appropriate siRNA or protein, and injected back into the patient for treatment. Numerous approaches are being researched for creating drug-loaded exosomes and exosomes themselves can exert powerful effects. For example, mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) derived exosomes have the capacity to suppress inflammation, prevent scar tissue formation, and mediate a healthy immune response.

The Era of Exosomes

For these reasons, exosomes have gone from being overlooked to rapidly gaining momentum as a novel strategy for accessing the therapeutic effects of cells without the risks and difficulties of administering cells to patients. Although exosomes were discovered more than 30 years ago, it was not until recently that the scientific community began to give credit to exosomes for a range of promising traits.

When exosome publications are analyzed, U.S. authors have published approximately 40% of the articles and China comes in second place. When the term “exosome” is searched in the scientific literature, Dr. Susanne Gabrielsson from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden is the leading author. When the term “extracellular vesicles” is searched, Unicyte AG, a regenerative medicine unit of Fresenius Medical Care, takes the lead. Headquartered in Switzerland, the company has published more than 100 papers on exosomes and extracellular vesicles in combination with Professor Giovanni Camussi.

To date, three pharma companies (Takeda, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, and Roche Pharmaceutical Company) have signed partnership deals with exosome companies offering payment terms structured to deliver at or around $1 billion dollars. Within the past 5 years, there has been at least 7 partnership deals within the exosome industry, 8 large venture capital events, and 2 landmark acquisitions.

Globally, there are at least 204 clinical trials focusing on exosome-related studies. Of these, 114 trials are evaluating exosome-based therapeutics and 74 trials are testing exosome-based diagnostic tests. Currently, 93 of the exosome trials (45%) are observational studies and 111 of them (55%) are interventional studies. The exosome industry has also achieved two approvals of FDA-approved diagnostic tests: Bio-Techne’s ExoDx Prostate IntelliScore Test for prostate cancer and Guardant’s 360 CDx test for non-small cell lung cancer.

Exosome Market Forces

To characterize the rapidly expanding exosome market, BioInformant has released a 312-page global market report that explores growing demand for exosome therapeutics, diagnostics, research tools, and manufacturing technologies. The report reveals trend rate data for exosome patents, grants, scientific publications, and clinical trials.

It highlights information about exosome industry partnerships, merger and acquisition (M&A) activity, and financing events. It features company profiles for 118 global competitors from across the exosome marketplace. Importantly, it presents market size determinations by market segment with forecasts through 2028.

Today the exosome industry is witnessing:

  • A surging number of scientific papers investigating exosomes and their applications

What To Do When Natural Hair Growth Treatments Are Not Enough

What should you do when your natural hair growth treatments are not "enough...?"

So, you’ve been disciplined with your vitamins, herbs, supplements, nutritionals, and nutraceuticals for hair regrowth. You’ve been diligently applying the recommended natural herbal topical lotions as recommended. You’ve been using the appropriate hair growth shampoos and conditioners… and you have likely experienced a slowing of hair loss progression and probably noticed even a bit of regrowth in some areas, which is fantastic for non-drug treatments. You’ve done everything “right” so far. 

However, perhaps you want to see more?  More regrowth. More thicker hair. More volume and more coverage, too? No worries!

It’s totally OK to want more from your natural hair regrowth regimen!  It’s completely natural to see your “new normal,” even if it’s improved from where you were, to now be “not enough.”

What can you do to further fight hair loss and improve hair growth?

You may have already been to your stylist or traditional salon. You may even have visited a popular non-medical hair growth salon, like Harklinikken, or if you’re lucky, a Certified Trichologist (a non-medical person who specializes in scalp health and hair growth). 

You may have even been to your local dermatologist for some hair loss advice at some point. But, the chances are, you have NOT gotten an opinion from a full-time board-certified Hair Restoration Physician--a doctor who is an experienced and credentialed professional in the highly specialized field of medical hair restoration. [Did you know there are only about 200 ABHRS board-certified Hair Restoration Physicians in the world, and even fewer have been accepted by the International Alliance for Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS)?]

What Can an ABHRS Board-Certified Hair Restoration Physician like Dr. Alan Bauman Do For You?

Diagnose: Without the correct hair loss diagnosis, your hair regrowth treatments are not likely to work. (This is why DIY treatments often don’t work--most people don’t know what hair loss condition or conditions they are treating.) Getting to an accurate diagnosis requires a detailed history of your hair loss, medical conditions and risk factors, microscopic assessments of your scalp, and may require blood tests or biopsies. 

Measure: If you don’t measure your baseline, tracking and judging improvements over time takes at least 400% longer to judge! (Remember, you can’t manage what you don’t measure.) At Bauman Medical, we measure every patient, every visit, every time!

Follow-up: During your follow-up appointments, we make sure your regimen is up to date, and you are performing the treatment regimen properly.  Nearly 1 in 3 patients have been making a ‘mistake’ in their regimen that is caught and remedied during their first follow-up appointment! Are new treatments available? We will let you know!

Adjust: If your regimen needs a boost because your stress level, health status, or hair loss status has changed, additional and more powerful therapies and treatments can be added. For example, you’ve been using a popular over-the-counter topical minoxidil treatment, but you’ve learned that the compounded prescription versions, like Formula 82M, are stronger and have fewer side effects. Or, maybe you’ve been using a consumer laser therapy device that looks like a big plastic bike helmet and want something more portable, more powerful and medical-grade, like the Turbo LaserCap.  

If you'd like to investigate what else you could be doing to help your hair regrowth, prevent further loss, and assess (or re-assess) your hair status, just request a new hair loss consultation or follow-up consultation with ABHRS Certified Hair Restoration Physician, Dr. Alan J Bauman MD, here at https://www.baumanmedical.com/schedule-consultation and our team will be happy to assist you. 

Top Hair Transplant Surgeon Dr Alan Bauman joins Wade Lightheart on BiOptimizers podcast to discuss hair loss

BIOPTIMIZERS 181: Dr. Alan J. Bauman: Voted “#1 Top Hair Restoration Surgeon” In North America
March 10, 2022


Our guest, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, takes a deep dive into the causes of hair loss in men and women and describes a number of treatment options. Dr. Bauman is a full-time board-certified hair restoration physician who has treated over 30,000 patients and performed more than 10,000 hair transplant procedures since starting his practice at Bauman Medical, located in Boca Raton, FL in 1997.
Recognized by Forbes as one of “10 CEOs Transforming Healthcare in America,” Dr. Bauman is known for pioneering numerous technologies in the field of hair restoration including minimally-invasive FUE Follicular Unit Extraction, VIP|FUE™ No-Shave Hair Transplant, Low-Level Laser Therapy, PRP Platelet Rich Plasma, PDOgro™, Eyelash Transplants and others.
He is a frequently invited faculty member and guest expert at numerous international scientific meetings and live surgery workshops and has been featured in hundreds of news stories in the media. You may have seen him on NBC Today, CBS Early Show, ABC Good Morning America, CNN, The Doctors, Spencer Kobren’s The Bald Truth, Bulletproof Radio with Dave Asprey or featured in Men’s Health, GQ, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, Oprah Magazine and many more.
In this podcast we cover:

  • Psychological impact of hair loss: aging, anxiety depression.
  • “Time is follicles.” Hair loss doesn’t get better without treatment.
  • 5,000-year history: Egyptian pigeon droppings and lizard skin.
  • Evolution of FDA-approved treatments and transplants.
  • Therapeutic and diagnostic interventions: AI-powered microscopes and DNA.
  • How are diagnostics and treatments managed at Bauman Medical?
  • Wade gets a live hair restoration consultation!

Watching this podcast, you’ll be quickly taken in by Dr. Bauman’s charisma, knowledge and talent. He inspires us all to “feel great every day” and offers life-changing procedures he’s perfected over 25 years for those who want to roll back hair loss and capture the vitality of their younger days.
A healthy head of hair doesn’t always require medical interventions. Dr. Bauman also highlights the importance of stress reduction techniques, good sleep, healthy dieting and keeping the body optimized to improve hair quality.
As is so often the case in life, a random discussion (with a hair transplant patient) transformed Dr. Bauman from a general surgeon to a medical hair restoration physician. As Dr. Bauman tells it, “The one thing that really stuck with me from that first conversation was how it changed his life and I’ll never forget his description of how he changed personally and professionally.”
Hair loss, what’s the big deal?
“It’s a sensitive topic for a lot of people. They’re embarrassed about it, they want to talk about it, there’s a vanity issue and there’s all these different things about it.”
“Appearance-wise, they want to look good and feel great. That’s the fun part about having a practice like mine. I’ve been enjoying it like that, you know for 25 years.”
“They see it [hair loss] as a sign of their youth slipping away.”
What can I expect if I choose treatment?
Diagnosis, treatment, and post-care are the cornerstones of the service provided at Bauman Medical and are tailored to each client’s specific condition and expectations. 
“And so we have to have the first, most important thing, which is a good plan.”
“The first thing we talk about always, what are the appropriate expectations for what the procedure can provide?”
“The most common risk is that a person has a procedure, but they don’t continue on with medical therapy or they fall off the wagon.”
“That they must continue, whether it be a topical medication, oral medication, nutritional, nutraceutical or using the laser that they invested in. And that’s really been the secret to our success with our patients is that consistent follow up and that kind of team approach.”
How goes Wade’s consult?
Dr. Bauman typically does consults in the office or via Zoom. Patients are required to complete a lengthy questionnaire regarding lifestyle, health conditions and expectations. Further, genetic testing is recommended to provide an optimized treatment plan—personalized, precision medicine.

Following are excerpts from a 20-minute “consult” without the detailed background information in which Wade seeks advice for his thinning hair. 
DR: “Tell me a little bit about your hair loss situation and maybe what you’re seeing in the mirror and how it looks to you when you look at your hair and when you first became aware of some hair changes?
WL: “Maybe in my late 20s I just started to notice like over here on the sides, particularly. It would just start to go back a little bit more. Nothing that was alarming, but something I do recall noticing it’s kind of like when you get your first wrinkle. A percentage of loss is happening, each year, and now I have very fine hair, as well as existing blonde and very light.”
WL: “So that also amplifies it in certain lighting when I’m on lights and things like that, so you know that that light shines right through my hair. I’d like it to be a little thicker so I don’t go full Kojak too soon.
DR: “Sure, and as mentioned before you do have some family hair loss on your dad’s side. So we know hair loss that is genetic male pattern baldness does come from the families, mom-side or dad-side or both and it can skip generations and siblings.”
DR: “The good news about that crown area is that we can definitely protect and restore that area, probably with non-invasive therapies. But if you’re looking to change the way your hairline looks then obviously we would need to do something more aggressive.”
WL: “Well, I think, if I had a magic wand, I would just kind of return it back to maybe where it was when I was in my early 20s. I’d have no receding parts here.”
DR: “Teenager hairline is not going to look normal and natural as you continue to age, and so we need to talk about an age-appropriate hairline, which is going to have a little bit of a recession to it.”
DR: “But the cool thing about this kind of technology is that even at four days out from the procedure you can do tennis and golf and lift weights, you can be at the gym sweating sauna. It takes about four to five months for those hairs to start to kick in and grow.”
Stay tuned for more news about Wade’s detailed treatment plan.
As Wade notes, everybody in the biohacking community is talking about health and vibrancy and living long and living strong. But there’s also a cosmetic side. We typically start each day looking in the mirror.
“Why have a Ferrari, with a bad paint job when you can have it with a nice shiny clear coat? I think hair is one of those things that really makes someone look vibrant, young and vital.”
“I want to look as good as I feel. I’ve been taking care of myself… I’m doing the biohacking thing… I’m on the journey… I’m in the tribe.”

Hair Growth - Quitter's Day 2022

Hair Growth Quitter's Day 2022

or "Why Resolutions Are Like Stinky, Spoiled Milk"

Hello, it’s Dr. Bauman.

Lots of things have expiration dates:



Celebrity marriages. :)

And as it turns out, New Year’s resolutions have an expiration date, too. In fact, research conducted by Strava, a data analysis firm, found that January 19th is the day most people abandon their resolutions.

(Strava calls it “Quitter’s Day”. Ouch.)

So if you dropped your New Year’s resolutions like a carton of spoiled milk, you’re not the only one.

It happens to most people.

And one reason why is because, frankly, resolutions aren’t very effective.

Think about it. 

Most resolutions are well-intentioned but vague. 

For example, let’s say you set a resolution this year to get better hair health. The good intention is there, but what exactly does “better hair health” mean? It’s too vague to say, right?

As a result, there’s no way to measure your progress. Are you moving forward? Or running in place? Without a sense of forward momentum, it’s easy to wind up frustrated and confused.

No wonder so many people bail on their New Year’s resolutions after a couple of weeks.

But here’s good news:

By making a couple of simple tweaks, you can actually stick to your New Year’s resolutions -- and achieve any goal you set. Here’s how.

First, turn your resolution into a specific, process-oriented goal.

Instead of wishing and hoping for “better hair health”, you could turn that resolution into a specific goal like, “I want a visibly thicker, fuller head of hair in the next 9 to 12 months.”

Then, you follow a process that moves you towards this goal. For example: 

Eat foods rich in hair-healthy nutrients like biotin, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids at each meal. Practice meditation 15 minutes per day to reduce stress. Meet with a qualified hair doctor to discuss your hair health challenges, goals, and treatment options.

(I’d be happy to meet with you 1-on-1 to talk about your hair health. Go here to learn more about scheduling a consultation with me and my team.)

If you stick to a winning process, results will follow.  

Second, actively measure your progress. 

Some goals are relatively easy to measure. 

Say your goal is to be able to do 50 push-ups in a row. You can tell how close you are to reaching that goal every time you do push-ups.

But measuring hair health progress isn’t always so easy.

In fact, your hair and scalp can be getting healthier without any visible results for weeks. 

To help our patients measure their progress through every step of their hair restoration journey, we’ve invested in an AI-powered microscopic hair analysis tool called HairMetrix.

Thanks to HairMetrix, our patients know precisely how well they’re responding to hair growth treatments. In seconds it tells us hair density and hair caliber. There’s no guesswork. And no wasted time.

But whatever tool you choose to use, make sure you’re measuring your progress. 

Because few things are better at keeping you focused and motivated than knowing you’re making progress towards your goals.

And you don’t have to go it alone.

If you’re serious about getting thicker, fuller hair this year, my team and I would love to help you reach that goal.

The first step is sitting down together in a 1-on-1 consultation, available in-person or virtually. 

During this consultation, we’ll uncover the root cause of your hair loss, clarify your hair health goals, and build a customized hair restoration plan for you.


Go here to schedule your 1-on-1 consultation.

Or call us at 561-394-0024 with questions or to schedule by phone.

And if you’re already a patient but you “dropped the ball” along the way, no worries! We’re here to help you get back on your journey.

Schedule a follow-up consultation virtually or in-office and we’ll get you back on track.

An Uncontrolled Case Series Using a Botanically Derived, β-Cyclodextrin Inclusion Complex in Two Androgenetic Alopecia-Affected Male Subjects

Geno Marcovici

Alan J Bauman

Abstract Drug-based monotherapy provides limited clinical benefits in polygenic disorders, such as androgenetic alopecia. Possible benefits must be measured against non-trivial risks of negative side effects. Several well-controlled, peer-reviewed, basic science studies have demonstrated novel mechanisms of action and potential utility for natural-based phytochemicals in the treatment of androgen-mediated disorders, including androgenetic alopecia. Yet, due to phytochemical instability, volatility, and incompatibility, the bridge from in vitro potential to clinical efficacy remains largely unmet. Recent advances in nanomaterial manipulation provide enhanced platforms, such as cyclodextrins, in which these phytochemicals may be enveloped and delivered without triggering the loss of intended function. Unexpected, positive results of an uncontrolled case series for a cyclodextrin-enabled, natural-based formula containing γ linolenic acid, β-Sitosterol, epigallocatechin gallate, and genistein, administered concomitantly via oral and topical form in two androgenetic alopecia-affected, male subjects over the course of 270 days were found. At baseline, significant baldness in the vertex scalp of both subjects was observed. Subsequent 90-day time points demonstrated marked hair thickening. On treatment day 270 (conclusion), scalp hair loss was no longer evident in either patient. Particularly in the setting of disorders such as androgenetic alopecia, nano-complexed, botanically-based compositions may offer beneficial adjunctives or alternatives to traditional drug-based/surgical medical treatments. Keywords: hair loss; advanced drug delivery; nanoparticles; natural hair loss treatment; phytochemicals; β-cyclodextrin

Why We Shlepped to St. Louis Hair Transplant 360

Why did I schlep >1,300 miles with my hair transplant team?

If you were a top athlete or part of a high-performing athletic team, you’re always trying to improve your game mentally and physically. A surgeon and a surgical team are no different. But instead of hitting the gym, a performance camp, or “spring training,” where does a hair transplant team go to take a break from their days of surgery to “practice” and improve, acquire and share their wisdom and skills with their teammates and colleagues? 

They step out of the regular routine and attend a hands-on surgical workshop. Last month, the entire Bauman hair transplant team had a unique opportunity to attend “Hair Transplant 360” at St Louis University’s Center for Practical Anatomy & Clinical Experience (PACE), a hands-on cadaver workshop for both surgeons and their assistants organized by Dr. Sam Lam, Emina Vance and supported by the ISHRS International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. The thirteen of us left South Florida and headed to St. Louis MO. Up early and back late—the bus left the hotel at 6:30am and returned 6:30pm—each day was packed with about 10hrs of CME Continuing Medical Education specifically for hair transplant surgeons and their assistants. Topics presented and skills practiced included basic techniques to the most advanced therapeutic interventions, and even those team members who have decades of experience with over 10,000 patients and millions of grafts placed, had an amazing time.

It was an honor to be invited to be on the faculty with my esteemed hair transplant colleagues from all across the country and working with attendees at all stages of their careers, but all with a keen interest in advancing their hair transplant skills and aesthetic eye.

What skills and knowledge did we practice, learn and improve upon?

  • Ergonomics
  • Speed
  • Accuracy
  • New Techniques for better hair transplant results and growth survival.
  • Teamwork, Camaraderie, Synergy
  • Healing / Recovery / Improving Hair Growth+Graft Take Rates
  • The latest non-invasive prescription treatment modalities
  • Advances in patient comfort
  • …and much more!

Here's a brief video overview of our exciting, exhausting, educational and fun experience:

Hair loss questions? A new way to get answers: #TeleHAIR

Hair loss questions? A new way to get answers

When you’re struggling with hair loss, you have questions.

You want to know WHY your hair is thinning.

And you want to know HOW you can save your hair, or if that’s even possible.

So you may take to the internet and search for answers on Google, blogs, Facebook groups, forums, Reddit, and more.

But here’s the problem:

The internet is a minefield of misinformation and weak (or worse, ineffective) non-medical treatments for hair loss.

That’s an obvious problem.

Because every day you spend without accurate information means your optimum scalp and hair health is, at best, delayed.

Worse, this misinformation can permanently jeopardize the health of your hair.

And what about the generic meds from online pharmacies and consumer laser devices that have flooded the internet over the past few years?

Do they offer the very best, strongest, safest treatments for your hair?

Sadly, no.

All too often, what’s touted as a “solution” on social media and slick-looking websites is little more than modern-day snake oil.

So what are your options?

When it comes to answers about your hair health you need proven medical advice and guidance from a licensed, experienced expert you can trust.

That’s not easy to find, especially online.

Until now.

This year, my team and I have been hard at work on an exciting solution called TeleHAIR™ by Bauman Medical.

With TeleHAIR™ you’ll have direct access to the answers and medical treatments you need to improve the health of your hair and scalp.

WITHOUT leaving the comfort of your own home.


Because TeleHAIR™ is the only virtual consultation platform that directly connects you privately via video with Bauman Medical, one of the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art hair loss treatment centers in the world.

You’ll join a qualified credentialed expert for a private one-on-one discussion about your scalp condition, hair loss concerns, and hair restoration goals.

You’ll receive medical advice and specialist-only answers you can trust, as well as safe, customized compounded medications.

You’ll have confidence, peace-of-mind, and results you can see (and others will notice).

I believe TeleHAIR™ by Bauman Medical will be an absolute game-changer for the industry and for YOU, especially if you’re unable to visit us here in Florida.

My team and I are hard at work putting the finishing touches on TeleHAIR™.

I’ll have more details to share with you very soon.

But if you’re looking for answers to and solutions for your hair loss NOW, then I invite you to join me in a Virtual Consultation.

During your Virtual Consultation, you and I will discuss your hair loss challenges.

We’ll look at all the treatment options available to you.

And we’ll create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
