1. Medi Tresse COVID Protocols and Continuation of Patient Care

    It has been a couple of months since we have touched on our COVID-19 Protocols at Medi Tresse and with the arrival of fall I thought this would be a good time to review them and make sure patients understand how they could be impacted.  Our number one priority is always the safety of our staff and patients and all of our decisions will continue to be based on this priority. First off, let me just…Read More

  2. Hair Loss Awareness Month – Hear From a Patient

    As part of National Hair Loss Awareness Month, we asked one of our current patients to share their hair loss experience.  Below was written by one of our current patients Melissa, who has been a patient at Medi Tresse since December 2017. The truth is, it is a difficult fact to face when you realize you are a young woman losing her hair.  You feel alone and feel like all eyes are on you and your…Read More

  3. Hair Loss Awareness Month – Dr. Wendel’s Hair Loss Story

    Like most years, August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month. Fortunately, awareness for hair loss in women is increasing, and with that awareness comes improved evaluation and treatments.  Up until about 10 years ago, there wasn’t much to offer women except minoxidil.  But things are rapidly changing. I believe many of you know that I also suffer from Female Androgenic Alopecia, or FAGA. I a…Read More

  4. COVID-19 and Hair Loss

    Happy August everyone.  I know for myself that when we get to the middle of August, I start to get very sad about the end of the summer.  This year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it has been one of the hardest summers for many of us.  I know it has been for me.  The anxiety surrounding children going back to school has only heightened the stress for many people.  My son and daughter-in-law…Read More

  6. Psoriasis and Gut Health

    I recently came across some research in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care called “The Role of Gut Microbiodome in the Pathogenesis of Psoriasis and the Therapeutic Effects of Probiotics” that I felt was quite interesting and pertinent for our patients for a two reasons.  First, we see a number of patients with psoriasis of the scalp, which leads to temporary hair loss.  I mysel…Read More

  7. Focusing on at Home Treatments

    As many of us have been at home focusing on isolating and keeping our distance, we have heard from a number of you asking about what kind of treatments you can do while at home.  We also know that as we slowly open up, some patients may not feel comfortable venturing out right away and may be looking for options over the coming months.  Thankfully, there is a lot that we can do while we are home…Read More

  9. Updated Office Protocols For Re-opening

    We are certainly looking forward to seeing all of you in our office as it becomes safe to do so.  While the pause we took from in-office appointments was important, we know for many of you it was difficult to put off treatments or in-person evaluations.  We thank all of you for your flexibility and understanding these past couple of months as we rescheduled appointments (sometimes many times!) a…Read More
