Hair: A gift that keeps giving...
Noninvasive therapy restores thinning scalp.

Steve Dorfman
Boomer Health

Christmas came early for me this year.
It was delivered — ever so gradually — in the form of a gift I’d spent most of my life taking for granted: a head full of thick, healthy hair.
(Would that make it a “re-gift”? But I digress …)
Regular readers might recall that, back in May, I embarked on a non-invasive, hair-restoration treatment protocol.
In the past few years, age — and a blood disorder that left me, among other things, severely anemic — had wreaked havoc on my hairline.
Dr. Alan Bauman (baumanmedical.com), a nationally recognized hair-restoration specialist based in Boca Raton, offered to provide for me, pro bono, a program consisting of the following:
• Specially compounded Formula 82M Minoxidil (applied topically, twice daily);
• Twice daily hair-growth vitamin supplements (ViviscalPro and Appearex Biotin);
• Low level laser light therapy (at home, I wore a device called a LaserCap for 30 minutes, thrice-weekly).

My goals were modest. Primarily, I wanted to revive the wispy, “dead-looking” hair in the front middle region. This was the area I surmised had been most damaged by the prolonged — and that mocked me every time I caught sight of myself in a mirror.
Any additional improvement in hair growth, quality or volume (all of which Dr. Bauman can objectively quantify and measure) would be the proverbial “gravy.”
Dr. Bauman gently warned me that, in his nearly 20-plus years of experience, the biggest obstacle to the success of any hair-restoration program was usually patient compliance.
That is, people tended not to be diligent about performing the daily duties necessary to produce results.
Well, clearly, Dr. B. had no idea with whom he was dealing.
As all too many former girlfriends — not to mention my poor ex-wife — can attest, if there’s anything I can do, it’s follow a daily ritual.
Or dozens (hundreds?) of daily rituals.
I’d simply add the three minor at-home tasks to my copious mental checklist.
Of course, for the first month or two, I felt as if I was wasting my time.
Yes, Dr. Bauman had cautioned me that meaningful results could be a long time in the offing — perhaps as much as six months. Still, there didn’t appear to be any discernible difference in my hairline — especially that troublesome spot in the middle of my forehead.
With each fingertip application of the 82M Minoxidil, and ingestion of supplements, I would mentally compose the sad-sack column I’d eventually have to write about how the treatment was unsuccessful.
Then, one morning, perhaps eight weeks into the routine, my hairline looked just the tiniest bit fuller than I had recalled.
My first instinct: that I was imagining it … that I was simply hoping for it to look different.
Indeed, the initial resuscitation of those spindly front follicles was so gradual, so deliberate, that it was virtually imperceptible.
But then, the restoration process began developing momentum.
From the fourth month on, even family, friends and colleagues noticed the difference.
By the time I underwent my six-month progress evaluation a few weeks ago, the objective evidence was indisputable: Every measurable metric (length, quality, volume) had increased anywhere from 25 to 50 percent, depending on the region being examined.
So, as far as I’m concerned, forget the idea of simply having a “good hair day.”
Thanks to my non-invasive restoration protocol, I’ve had a “great hair year!”

Renowned hair loss expert, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D., is one of only approximately 100 physicians in the world to achieve certification from the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and one of only fifty doctors recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. Since 1997 he has treated over 15,000 hair loss patients at his clinic Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton, FL.
