1. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  6. 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

  7. Think About Your Hair Health Before Self Styling

    Even with everything that is currently going on, a few weeks ago I managed to get fixated on the color of my roots.  I even went as far as buying a coloring kit, which has been sitting on my bathroom counter for weeks now.  Without our ability to make trips to our hair stylists, I am sure I am not the only one who has made this purchase and I am sure some of you have taken the next step and self…Read More

  8. Introducing LOCKrx

    We are excited to now offer our patients the LOCKrx product line.  We are constantly evaluating and reviewing the latest developments on the treatment of female hair loss and based on some of the latest research we felt like we had some holes in our treatment offerings.  Specifically, when it came to gut health and at home micro-needling. We have always believed that supplements and vitamins nee…Read More

  9. Introducing Tresse RX

    We are living in uncertain times that have caused all of us to adapt in many ways and how we treat hair loss is no different.  At a time when our offices are closed and most of us are staying at home, we realized that we needed to give our patients new ways to treat their hair loss in the comfort of their home. For many patients our recommended treatment plan includes Optimal Platelet Concentrati…Read More

  10. Is a Video Appointment Worth It?

    Over the past few weeks we have had to change our approach to patient interactions as we try to meet the needs of our patients while also promoting social distancing.  With our offices currently closed for in-office appointments, we have begun offering online video appointments for consultation and follow-up appointments.  So far we have a had a lot of patients take advantage of online video app…Read More
