Today's topic: NEW DONOR AREA CLOSURE TECHNIQUE PROVIDES LITTLE OR NO SCAR WITH STRIP PROCEDURE, TRICHOPHYTIC CLOSURE OF DONOR AREA.
With extreme care in donor closure, the best scars produced are one to two mm. Today's patient expectations as well as short hair fashions drive us to provide scars as thin as possible. The method now being used is borrowed from the days of flaps moved to the hairline, where the front 1 to 2 mm was deepithelialized to allow the hair to grow through the scar making it invisible, or at least less obvious. Studies have been performed closing half the donor area by traditional means and half using the new closure technique. These consistently show improvement in the scar in the half closed by the new technique. I am using this Trichophhitic closure technique exclusively in my practice now and hope to see an even greater improvement in my scars.
NEW PRODUCTS FOR HAIR REGROWTH AVAILABLE IN JAN 2006
In about 6 weeks, I will be introducing a new product line, including a dermatologic shampoo, conditioner, and a dermatologic hair loss lotion. As well I will be offering a multivitamin with supplements I have found to be deficient in patients experiencing hair loss. The shampoo and conditioner will contain extracts, which promote healthy and rapid hair growth, and the formula will contain 5% minoxidil as well as a natural, organic herbal product called . Both of these have been clinically proven to grow hair. Clinical studies will be presented in the next newsletter. I hope you find this newsletter informative. In January, I will give an update on hair multiplication/cloning, always a fascinating interesting topic. There have been some recent advances from a group in England.
