1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. Our NP Diana Talks About Her Current Struggle with Shedding

    I have been treating women experiencing hair loss for the last 3 1/2 years at Medi Tresse and during that time I have seen quite a few patients at the office and received a number of phone calls and emails from patients panicking over excessive shedding.  Clumps of hair in the shower, hair all over the bathroom floor, kitchen floor, in the laundry, all over their clothes etc. Some of these patien…Read More

  6. All Medi Tresse Offices Temporarily Closed

    Based on prioritizing the health and safety of our patients, staff, and communities, all Medi Tresse locations will be temporarily closing.  Our Scarsdale, NY office closed on Saturday March 21st and our two Massachusetts offices (Wellesley and Worcester) will be closing today (3/24/20) at noon.  We will be cancelling all existing in-office appointments through April 7th, 2020.

  7. Stress And Your Hair

    Wow.  What a difference a month makes.  In the beginning of March, I was peacefully looking forward to the changes we see every Spring, with the longer days, higher temperatures, and the return of color in the flowers and trees.  All those changes will still happen, but I fear we are not going to be able to appreciate them as we have in the past, with all the worry and stress of Coronovirus.  …Read More

  8. Ketoconazole Shampoo

    We receive a lot of questions from patients about shampoos and there is one in particular that comes up often, ketoconazole shampoo.  It is important to understand that most shampoos are not going to significantly regrow hair, regardless of what they advertise.  Many of these products will have ingredients that are known to help with hair loss, like DHT blockers or proteins, but it is not known …Read More

  9. Update on Treating Scarring Alopecia

    Over the years we have noticed an increase in the number of patients with Scarring Alopecia.  While part of the reason for this is that the medical community is becoming better at identifying, we also do believe that the incidence of scarring alopecia is increasing.  There is some evidence that certain harsh hair care practices may contribute to some forms of Scarring Alopecia, such as the use o…Read More

  10. Recent Study May Prove that Stress Does Cause Your Hair to Turn Gray

    Anecdotally we have believed that stress can cause our hair to turn gray.  If you have ever seen pictures of a president’s first day in office versus their last, they certainly leave with a head full of gray hairs.  For ourselves, at the first sign of gray hairs we often blame our children, spouse, or work for these stress induced gray hairs.  Well it turns out we may have been right, as rese…Read More
