New device helps prevent hair loss

BOCA RATON, Florida. – The American Hair Loss Association estimates that at least 80 million men and women in the US are currently experiencing some degree of hair loss, but there is a newly approved device that can help support hair follicles.

Michael Jondle is only 26 years old, but two years ago started noticing that his once full head of hair was waning.

“I started noticing a huge reduction in both the front and the back of my hair and it was causing a lot of fuss. It made me very insecure about what my hair was doing.” said Jondel.

He arrived at Boca Raton, Fla. hair loss specialist Dr. Alan Bauman, who works with a variety of technologies and products to help people with hair loss.

“Especially in a time of COVID, we can see the stress, we can see the infection and even the vaccinations all cause hair loss and there’s so much hereditary hair loss too,” Bauman said.

In addition to many non-invasive approaches, including supplements and laser hair therapy, Bauman now uses an ultrasound-based device called trans-epidermal delivery, or TED, which he said enhances the benefits of follicle-enhancing products.

“We are going to start with a dry scalp, we are going to map out the treatment areas. We’re going to pretreat the area with the device so that the ultrasound technology makes the skin more permeable, then we’re going to apply the serum to each area and use the device to drive the serum through that skin,” Bauman said.

The serum is made of several growth factors that can increase blood circulation, stimulate the follicles to grow better, thicker quality hair and anchor the hair shafts in the scalp, but it has its limits.

“Like other non-invasive technologies, you don’t get new hair follicles. This will improve the follicles you have,” Bauman said.

Jondle has just completed the second of his three monthly treatments.

“I’m all about preventive, I’m a big proponent of catching something early start a little early I’m all for preventive, I don’t want to fix the problem when it happens, I want to start working on it before you can do something about it, ‘ said Jondle.

The protocol for the TED procedure is three treatments three months apart and improvement can take up to a year before repeating the process.
