A new needle-free and pain-free ultrasound technology is being used by an internationally renowned hair restoration surgeon to treat hair loss.
Dr Alan J Bauman, the brain behind Biohacking Baldness and a new treatment pioneer, has introduced Alma ‘Transepidermal Delivery’ or Alma TED to his practice in Florida, USA. This system offers a non-traumatic option to treat hair shedding and hair thinning. It is a Class 1 medical device and is clinically proven to minimise shedding, improve hair growth and scalp health within minutes.
Alma TED uses painless ultrasonic sound waves and air pressure to drive powerful topical hair growth treatments and serums (formulated with growth factors designed to reactivate dormant hair follicles and anchor hair shafts) into the skin and promote increased blood flow to the scalp using a technique called sonophoresis. The treatment targets follicles to make them grow thicker hair.
This treatment is ideal for patients who want to improve the overall thickness and appearance of the hair and is also used to treat androgenic alopecia, as well as in conjunction with other therapies for more profound hair growth results.
As there is no injection required, no trauma to the scalp, nor blood drawn, the system can be utilised for patients who are averse to the blood draw required for PRP and other treatments involving needles.
Bauman is using the system not only for thinning hair in both men and women alike, but also to address those suffering from alopecia, Covid hair loss, patchy beards and even patchy eyebrows. The treatment reportedly feels like a scalp massage.
