A new treatment shows promise for hair re-growth: PRP

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a new method to treat hair loss (androgenic alopecia) and PRP is now available at Dermatology Boutique!

Some patients experience a reduction in hair loss after several PRP treatments, and also an improvement in the volume and coverage of hair on treated areas of the scalp.

PRP is an injectable made from your blood! PRP speeds healing and has been used for years to help athletes recover from injuries and to repair tendons and joints.  A small amount of your blood is drawn and then with a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma is extracted. After the injections of the PRP into your scalp, you may experience some redness, a little swelling or even bruising for a few days.

In this video news segment on Good Morning America, Dr. Jennifer Ashton demonstrates hair re-growth with PRP injections in the scalp.

April is Rosacea Awareness Month

RosaceaMonth_button_500The National Rosacea Society (NRS) is a resource for information on the types of rosacea, treatments and skin care and cosmetic tips for rosacea.

The National Rosacea Society offers a toll-free telephone number (888-NO-BLUSH) for information. The NRS also has a newsletter for rosacea patients; a “Rosacea Diary” to help patients identify and avoid lifestyle factors that may trigger flare-ups in their individual cases; and other booklets to help patients understand and manage their condition.

Dr. Golomb can recommend options to manage your rosacea, including medical therapy, as well as every day actions you can take to calm your skin.  Prior to your appointment, write down situations that have caused your redness or breakouts to flare:  sun exposure, foods or beverages, heat, stress or anxiety or soap.
