2020 Hair Loss Webinar Series
We are always looking for new ways to share relevant information with our patients, which has lead us to start the Medi Tresse Webinar Series. We will start by having weekly webinars every Thursday at 12PM (noon). Each webinar will cover a different topic and will always end with a Q&A where you can ask questions with the panelists. While we will be posting the webinars on this page afterwards, it is best to attend the actual webinar as attendees will be receiving specials and discounts.
It is important to register for each webinar that you would like to attend, which you can do below. We do limit the number of spots in these webinars to ensure that attendees can ask questions and we can get through all of the questions in a reasonable time. Also, if there are certain topics that you would like covered please let us know. Our goal is to provide information that our patients find useful.

We are planning to have at least one webinar in August. Check back soon to find out the topic and register.
Thursday 4/16/20 – Tresse Rx
We are introducing a brand new at home treatment protocol called Tresse RX, which combines the best at home treatments into an easy to use protocol to give you the best chance to rejuvenate your hair.
Thursday 4/23/20 – Why Am I Shedding?
We have all experienced it: the panic you feel when you keep noticing more hair than usual in the shower drain or the bathroom floor. It is normal to shed 50 to 100 hairs a day, but why do we sometimes shed way more for weeks at a time?
Thursday 4/30/20 – Comparing Different Female Hair Loss Treatments
There are lots of options out there for at home hair loss treatments, from topicals to laser to minoxidil or supplements, we have a lot to choose from. However, even in each category we have lots of options. During this webinar we will spend some time reviewing different treatments options and discussing the pros and cons.
Thursday 5/7/20 – Is All Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy the Same?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy has become one of the most popular treatments for female hair loss, and clinical studies have proven how effective it can be. However, the biggest concern with PRP Therapy is there is currently no standard protocol, which means how it is performed can vary greatly from one practice to another. During this webinar we review why protocols differ, how we chose our treatment protocols, and go over questions you should be asking before starting treatment.
Thursday 5/14/20 – Tips to Improve Hair Health
From nutrition to styling to the products we use decisions we make everyday affect the health of our hair. During this webinar we will review some simple changes that you can make to help improve the health of your hair.
Thursday 6/18/20 – Are Hair Transplants a Good Option for Female Hair Loss Patients?
With the development of great non-surgical treatment options like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), we have seen a decrease in the number of female patients that we would recommend hair transplant surgery to, however there is still a place for it as a treatment for women with hair loss. Hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution for hair restoration, which makes it a very intriguing option. The webinar will be led by Dr. Mark DiStefano, who has completed over 8,000 hair transplant surgeries and is a Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery(ABHRS).
Thursday 6/25/20 – Hair Loss as a Side Effect or Symptom
While we often think of hair loss as a genetic or aging issue, for many patients their hair loss is actually a side effect or symptom of something else. One of the most well known examples is chemotherapy, which often causes extensive hair loss. Some lesser known examples are hormone replacement therapy or weight loss surgery, which can both cause hair loss. During this webinar Dr. Wendel will take a closer look at some medications, medical treatments, and lifestyle choices that can cause hair loss and what we can do to try to limit or treat that hair loss when it happens.
Thursday 7/23/20 – Hair Care Practices that Damage our Hair – Prevention & Treatment
Unfortunately, over time many of the practices we utilize to style our hair not only damage our hair, but can cause temporary or permanent loss. It is widely accepted that the incidence of scarring alopecia in women is increasing and there is some evidence that some of the cosmetic products may be to blame, but further research is needed. During this webinar Dr. Wendel will review some of the most common hair care practices that are known to cause hair loss and what we can do to prevent and treat the hair loss when it occurs.
