Hair loss evaluation and treatment
Hair loss is an all to common problem, which can have devastating effect on self-esteem, emotional wellbeing.
There are many different types of hair loss with different causes and treatments. Only an in-depth evaluation, which often involves laboratory tests, epiluminescence microscopy of the scalp, biopsy of the scalp skin, can accurately determine the best course of action. There are new treatments and new ways of using old treatments, but they are not applicable to just any form of hair loss. Expectations, limitations, possible side effects must be discussed with an expert, and ongoing monitoring is often needed.
Dr. Friedman has been involved in laboratory and clinical hair loss research since 1997. He participated in determining the genetic basis of inherited forms of hair loss, conducted groundbreaking research targeting gene expression to modify hair growth, and to induce hair growth by sub-organ level implants in human skin. Currently, Dr. Friedman is conducting a non-industry sponsored clinical trial for a novel, non-invasive modality to treat hair loss.
Dr. Friedman will be offering comprehensive hair loss consultations using state-of the art diagnostic tools and treatment modalities at Skincerely, Rockland Med Spa.
