Why is my hair over there? | The Seattle Times

Hair-loss causesMany factors can contribute to thinning hair, including:Hereditary female-pattern baldness Scalp disease Anemia Crash dieting Thyroid disease Autoimmune disorders, such as alopecia areata Trauma or severe psychological stress Hormonal changes, such as childbirth Medications, such as birth-control pills Cornrows, braids, tight hairstyles Hair-loss treatments Within five years, doctors hope they will be able to harvest hair stem cells from an adult’s head, put them in areas of hair loss and generate new hair cells. But for the time being, here are some ways Dr. Alan Bauman recommends to treat or camouflage thinning hair: Minoxidil (Formula 82M) Hair transplantation surgery Laser therapy

Formula 82F or 82M Compounded Minoxidil in eye, heres what to do

 

Formula_82M-82F-topical-minoxidil-retinoin-finasteride_DrAlanBauman

Did you get Formula 82M/82F in your eye?

Here's what to do!

Compounded Formula 82m prescription topical hair loss medication from Dr. Alan Bauman, MD / Bauman Medical contains minoxidil, tretinoin, fluocinolone, oleanolic acid, antioxidants and other ingredients, without propylene glycol. Compounded 82M is to be applied to the scalp twice a day for powerful hair regrowth in a solution that penetrates the scalp better, is easier to use and less greasy than rogaine. Formula 82F has the same ingredients but also contains finasteride. Formula 82M/82F are packaged with colored caps by the pharmacy to distinguish them from eye drops. Compounded Formula 82M/82F should NOT be stored anywhere near your eye drops to avoid accidental use in the eye.  Of course, these medications like all others should always be kept out of reach of children.

If placed in or around the eye, the ingredients in Formula 82M/82F can be extremely irritating and painful. Avoid rubbing your eyes or eyelids as this may be damaging to the eye. Thankfully, damage or injury from Formula 82M or Formula 82F in the eye has never been reported. 

If you accidentally put Formula 82M or Formula 82F in your eye. Don't panic. Do the following:

  1.  Immediately flush your eye with water or eye-wash, if available, continuously.
  2.  Immediately call and schedule a visit with your ophthalmologist (eye doctor) for an evaluation and follow up. 
  3.  If your ophthalmologist is not available, go to immediately to your local urgent care facility or ER. Bring the 82M/82F with you.

hair growth was stimulated by SFRP1 antagonist WAY-316606 via Wnt signaling

A novel strategy for stimulating hair growth using WAY-316606, an SFRP1 Antagonist via Wnt signaling pathway...

Recently touted in this popular news story entitled "Shampoo containing brittle bones drug allegedly triggers hair growth" http://www.foxnews.com/health/2018/05/09/shampoo-containing-brittle-bones-drug-allegedly-triggers-hair-growth.html, the scientific research behind this story and WAY-316606 is true and not "fake news," but the title is VERY misleading. This potentially hair-growing compound is NOT contained in a shampoo or gel in the ex-vivo studies (the studies were done in a petri dish, not on a scalp), and an over-the-counter remedy based on this technology is very, very far off--and may never come to fruition.

Identifying novel strategies for treating human hair loss disorders: Cyclosporine A suppresses the Wnt inhibitor, SFRP1, in the dermal papilla of human scalp hair follicles

Abstract

Hair growth disorders often carry a major psychological burden. Therefore, more effective human hair growth–modulatory agents urgently need to be developed. Here, we used the hypertrichosis-inducing immunosuppressant, Cyclosporine A (CsA), as a lead compound to identify new hair growth–promoting molecular targets. Through microarray analysis we identified the Wnt inhibitor, secreted frizzled related protein 1 (SFRP1), as being down-regulated in the dermal papilla (DP) of CsA-treated human scalp hair follicles (HFs) ex vivo. Therefore, we further investigated the function of SFRP1 using a pharmacological approach and found that SFRP1 regulates intrafollicular canonical Wnt/β-catenin activity through inhibition of Wnt ligands in the human hair bulb. Conversely, inhibiting SFRP1 activity through the SFRP1 antagonist, WAY-316606, enhanced hair shaft production, hair shaft keratin expression, and inhibited spontaneous HF regression (catagen) ex vivo. Collectively, these data (a) identify Wnt signalling as a novel, non–immune-inhibitory CsA target; (b) introduce SFRP1 as a physiologically important regulator of canonical β-catenin activity in a human (mini-)organ; and (c) demonstrate WAY-316606 to be a promising new promoter of human hair growth. Since inhibiting SFRP1 only facilitates Wnt signalling through ligands that are already present, this ‘ligand-limited’ therapeutic strategy for promoting human hair growth may circumvent potential oncological risks associated with chronic Wnt over-activation.

Author summary

Hair loss is a common disorder and can lead to psychological distress. Cyclosporine A, a fungal metabolite commonly used as an immunosuppressant, can potently induce hair growth in humans. However, it cannot be effectively used to restore hair growth because of its toxic profile. In this study, we used Cyclosporine A as a lead compound to identify novel therapeutic targets that can aid the development of new hair growth–promoting agents. Through microarray analysis, we found that the level of the secreted Wnt inhibitor, SFRP1, was significantly reduced by Cyclosporine A. This inspired us to design a new pharmacological approach that uses WAY-316606, a reportedly well-tolerated and specific antagonist of SFRP1, to prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle. We show that WAY-316606 enhances human hair growth ex vivo, suggesting that it is a more targeted hair growth promoter with the potential to treat human hair loss disorders.

 

At Bauman Medical, we are closely monitoring these types of research studies which may give rise to safe, therapeutic treatments for hair loss for our patients in the future.

Revolutionary Technology Restores Hairlines For Men And Women

Boca Raton, Florida – May 2, 2018 --  Internationally Renowned Hair Transplant Surgeon Dr. Alan J. Bauman, MD brings SmartGraft®, a minimally invasive and permanent hair restoration treatment for both men and women, to his state of the art practice in Boca Raton, Florida which serves Miami, Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and beyond.

IMG_1089 2-bauman-smartgraft_2016Dr. Bauman is one of only 200 physicians globally to achieve certification from the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), be an accepted member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS) and also recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. In addition, he has attained the coveted Fellow status within the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (FISHRS).

Hair is Dr. Bauman’s passion; he is an Advisory Board Member for the World Trichology Society and is also the author of numerous articles and textbook chapters on the science of hair care and hair transplantation, including eyelash transplant surgery. He is a successful early-adopter and pioneer of some of the most advanced technologies in the effective treatment of hair loss including no-linear-scar FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, which is why SmartGraft appealed to Dr. Bauman.

As an FUE hair transplant pioneer who has used numerous manual, mechanical and robotic devices over more than 15 years and after extensive internal device testing and research, I can say with great confidence that SmartGraft is a dramatic improvement over previous manual mechanical FUE tools currently on the market,” states Dr. Bauman. “Innovations like the unique closed, climate-controlled internal graft storage and hydration system, programmable microprocessor control, and on-board LED lighting system on the handpiece are improving accuracy, efficiency and, most importantly, our patients’ results.” He details that minimally invasive FUE harvesting of individual follicular units for transplantation with SmartGraft allows patients a faster, more comfortable, less restricted recovery phase compared to old-style linear “strip” harvesting.

[See Dr. Bauman's SmartGraft Results]

Since no wide-shave of the donor area is required, handheld FUE devices such as SmartGraft empower Dr. Bauman and his team to execute traditional transplants for male pattern hair loss, as well as specialty transplants like female hairline lowering, female pattern hair loss, female temple restoration, eyebrow transplantation, beard and body hair harvesting, as well as smaller “no shave” FUE procedures from the scalp for male and female hair loss patients. “With SmartGraft, all patients maintain the benefits of leaving behind absolutely NO telltale linear scar,” adds Dr. Bauman.

About FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is the least invasive hair transplant graft harvesting technique that leaves absolutely NO telltale linear scar in the donor area and with a more comfortable and less restricted recovery than traditional “Strip Harvest” techniques. Grafts as small as a single hair can be harvested from the Donor Area and when implanted with artistry and precision by an expert surgeon, create an undetectably natural restoration of living and growing hair.
