Biohacking Baldness During Hair Loss Awareness Month
Internationally Renowned Hair Restoration Surgeon Dr. Alan J. Bauman Discusses The Future of Follicular Fate on Dave Asprey's "Bulletproof Radio" And Gives the World's Leading High-Performance Lifestyle Guru a New Hairline
BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Alan J. Bauman MD, the world's most highly regarded Hair Restoration Surgeon having treated over 30,000 patients and performed over 9,000 hair transplants was featured by Dave Asprey, "Father of Biohacking" and 3X's NYT Best Selling Author on his "Bulletproof Radio" podcast. The podcast which has been downloaded more than 75 million times and has a stated goal to enhance human performance was an optimal platform for Bauman, whom Asprey accurately refers to as a "Hair Hacker," to take the masses on a deep dive into the present and future of hair transplants and the art and science behind biohacking baldness.
The two masterminds with a shared mission of improving lives touch on topics including the biology of aging hair and the prospect of biohacking grey hair by altering follicles that Bauman equates to the methodology of a liquid tan. Dr. Bauman, a self-proclaimed "hair junkie" reveals the treatments he has employed to maintain his enviable head of lustrous locks and sheds light on a plethora of advanced personalized treatments for hair restoration and the use of specific state-of-the-art quantification tools developed for optimal results.
During the podcast, Bauman emphasizes the importance of the presence of the hair follicle for any treatment to work and when that follicle is dead and gone how the role of the hair transplant comes into play. This leads to the evolution of transplants from the pluggy and obvious work of yesteryear to today's minimally-invasive no-linear-scar approach which is both natural-looking and sans the dreaded painful and once thought of lengthy recovery that was oftentimes a deterrent in undergoing the procedure. Bauman highlights the artistry involved in developing a natural hairline that transitions into the goal of Asprey's transplant to address his balding crown and receding hairline. Bauman explains that while every procedure is unique the motive is always to design and recreate a youthful hairline and coverage that achieves the most natural-looking results.
The podcast was recorded prior to the pandemic and immediately prior to Dave's 4,087 graft FUE hair transplant procedure which also included PRP Platelet Rich Plasma with Extracellular Matrix and follow-on hair regrowth treatments like Dr. Bauman's FDA-cleared TURBO LaserCap. Now months later Dave's keen social media followers are already noticing "something different" about his hair.
"It was an honor to be interviewed on Bulletproof Radio," exclaimed Dr. Bauman from his headquarters aptly dubbed 'The Hair Hospital,' in Boca Raton, FL. "And even more so to restore and upgrade Dave's hair to its youthful vigor. It's only fitting for a public figure whose aim is to age backwards and journey to 180 to have a permanently full head of hair that embodies his quest for essential eternal longevity and exceptional health inside and out."
