Hair restoration treatments using PRP & laser therapy reviewed by Dr Lycka & Dr Bauman

hair-loss-prpHair restoration treatments are introduced frequently but in amongst the persuasive marketing and over-promising, it can be a challenge for people suffering from hair loss to be confident they have found a genuine treatment.

There have, however, been several reasonably recent hair restoration treatments that are backed by strong science, that are making a difference to people suffering from hair loss.

To explain & review these treatments in detail, host of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes a popular repeat guest, leading hair restoration physician Dr Alan Bauman from his practise in Boca Raton, Florida.

In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Bauman begin by discussing the impact of introducing Platelet Rich Plasma into hair restoration treatments, particularly when performing a hair transplantation or when encouraging thin, weak, & wispy hair to grow thicker and stronger.


They talk about the science behind PRP and how its use is already common practise in other branches of medicine, including cosmetic dermatology.

The two doctors also discuss the use of low level laser therapy (LLLT) particularly the LaserCap which provides a very convenient way for hair loss sufferers to receive laser therapy to stimulate the growth of their weak and thin hair. Neither treatment will make ‘dead’ hair grow back but both are a very valuable addition to the treatments available for hair loss sufferers.

Dr Bauman also explains how the latest technology & tools enable accurate monitoring & measurement of hair loss (for diagnosis) and subsequent hair growth during the treatment duration.
