Medical Treatment Options, Mechanical Solutions, and Integrative Medicine Approach for Alopecia in Men and Women.
Hair Restoration Training - Hair Loss Therapies course was specifically designed for physicians looking to incorporate these new technologies and combination therapies into their practice. The advancements and newer technologies, injection therapy procedures, and combination drug therapies allow for regrowth of hair without the need in many cases for hair transplants, grafts, or surgery. Men and women are equally affected by hair loss and thinning hair throughout their lifetimes and even though we have been told it is hereditary, hair loss can be corrected or reversed.
Hair loss statistics are overwhelming as it affects 40 million males and over 25 million women in the United States. Non-surgical options for hair restoration and hair loss therapies will expand as industry growth will be driven by improving disposable incomes, an aging population through 2025, and an increased emphasis on outward appearance. There is a (4) out of (7) chance in men in receiving the baldness gene and (1) out of (4) women will suffer from lost and thinning hair. So how important is hair to our society?
• 15% of single women say they would refuse to date a balding man
• 70% of people surveyed say balding or thinning hair would negatively affect their self esteem
• 50% believe men with great hair have an advantage in job interviews
• >50% believe balding men are less frequently promoted
Patients also feel the impact of hair loss from a psychosocial perspective including such negative effects as
• Sense of inadequacy
• Loss of self-confidence
• Frustration, social stress, and unhappiness
• Dissatisfaction with body image
Overall medical (non-surgical) hair loss treatments represent a very large percentage of the market but are very fragmented with small private practices. Annual revenue exceeds $3.5B and is expected to grow 5.7% each year through 2025.
Empire Hair Restoration Training - Hair Loss Therapies Training will educate you in the combination prescription therapies (minoxidil, finasteride, Alpha II – 5 reductase inhibitors) as well as the latest mechanical treatments (PRP, LLT, ACell) and naturopathic solutions being used together today. Heredity is blamed for the majority of hair loss and thinning hair, though this is true it does not mean that hair loss and shedding cannot be reversed or stopped. It only means that their parents also exhibited these same biochemistry variances causing antogenic or other types of alopecia.
Hair Restoration Training - Hair Loss Therapies course will encompass all aspects needed to gain a full understanding of the pathophysiology for hair growth and hair loss, the most common causes, as well as other less common causes for hair loss and hair thinning. The latest scientific data is presented such as gene expression, stem cell markers/receptors, hormonal considerations, growth factors, and other data to provide evidenced based information concerning the therapeutic, mechanical, and supplement options that can be used in combination treatments. Differences between men and women are discussed extensively since the approach for each are different where there are hormonal factors, interaction with certain drugs, and other health issues affecting thinning hair and shedding. The bottom line is that hair loss is multi-factorial and combination treatments should always be considered and in determining the pathways for treatment.
Interested in even more advanced training? Empire offers a 1-Day preceptorship with world renowned Hair Transplant surgeon in Boca Raton, Florida. Don’t miss our next event coming up.
As part of your education you will receive protocols for the proper up-to-date testing for diagnosis of all the various types of alopecia as well as the clinical solutions for reversing hair loss and thinning. In addition we go over in detail and provide protocols for the use of other biologics and stem cell therapies including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in combination with various delivery systems including Micro Needling and FDA-Exempt Dermal Rollers. Specifically the various protocols and regimens we discuss include all of the following:
- Minoxidil (oral and topical) and the new revolutionary combination prescriptions available
- Finasteride (oral and topical) and consideration for use with Minoxidil
- Spironolactone (hair treatments, PCOS, acne)
- Cyproterone Acetate (hair treatments, PCOS, acne)
- Vitamins and Supplements
- Platelet Rich Plasma (hair treatments and other medical/aesthetic conditions)
- Biologics, Amniotic Tissue, and other Stem Cell Therapies for use with Platelet Rich Plasma
- Low Level Laser Technologies (LLT) and Red Light Therapies
Other technologies discussed are the new hair check system which allows for physicians to create a base-line for hair, make recommendations, measure regrowth of hair, and allow for early diagnosis of hair loss detecting thinning of hair 10-15 years prior. This is important since 50% of your hair is typically lost before it’s visible to most patients. There will be “hands-on” training with the hair check system at the program as well as an all-in-one hair loss system presented to attendees.
In addition, you will receive the “pearls” associated with hair loss and regrowth including the need for early diagnosis, overall health considerations, need for testing (women), and other considerations for most successful outcomes. Hair loss and hair thinning is very complex and all of the science is still not fully understood, compared to only a few years ago your patients have a much better chance of reversing hair loss and hair thinning. The capital expenditures needed to offer these various modalities and procedures is relatively inexpensive and there are many other uses for the technologies.
As with all Empire Medical Training programs, the Hair Restoration Training - Hair Loss Therapies training includes a complete manual, patient in-take forms, white papers, videos, and marketing materials needed to successfully integrate these new procedures. You will also have access to our new resource section to our website that will also update you with other latest information useful to incorporate these medical hair loss therapies.
