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. 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.

Tuesday 5/4/21 at 12:00 PM – How Hormones Affect Our Hair
Hormones can have a significant impact on the health of our hair, both naturally and from medications and treatments now being offered. Women will often experience changes in their hair during pregnancy and menopause, when hormones are fluctuating naturally. However, many of the birth control options available today affect our hormones, which can have an impact on our hair, some positive and some negative. We have seen an increase in the use of hormone replacement therapy for various conditions, which can also directly affect our hair as well. During this webinar, we will look at how hormones affect our hair and how and why our hormone levels change and what we can do to protect our hair.
