Hydration & Holistic Skin Health

"HOLISTIC:  characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole."

In a world where we are held to high(er) standards and we are expected to over-perform and to always be at the top of our game, can we find real recovery for both skin and overall health, "right now" energy, and best mind function?  Can we come back to work and home a stronger, more energized person?

Dr. Baron will soon be offering IV infusion therapy for full-body hydration, electrolyte and vitamin replenishment, and visible skin radiance in a matter of 20 - 30 minutes.  Infusions performed by licensed nurse (RN) or Dr. Baron only in our clean and quiet space.  Free wi-fi provided (or just go off the grid).  Deeply hydrating face masks or therapeutic skin peels can be added to treatments.

A few reasons to infuse:  jet-lag/recent travel, physical or emotional stress, inflammation, aging skin, eczema, psoriasis, cancer treatment, hangover, athletic events, major workouts, preparing for upcoming events. 

**Holistic self-care coming soon to Dr. Baron's office!**

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Hair Restoration

Hereditary factors, hormone changes, physical and emotional stressors, certain medications, diseases and other causes can lead to hair loss.  Over many years, much research in the medical community has been focused on prevention of hair loss and restoration and stimulation of new hair growth.  Dr. Baron is trained and experienced in several hair restoration modalities, ranging from medical to surgical procedures (hair transplantation), and has become one of the few physician-surgeons in the Silicon Valley area who is qualified to perform PRP, a breakthrough treatment for hair loss.  She approaches each case by assessing all potential hair loss factors, then carefully formulates a hair-restoration plan which may include a combination of systemic and topical therapies as well as the beneficial effects of PRP.  She performs PRP therapy for hair restoration as a safe and highly effective therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an innovative, non-invasive option that utilizes the natural healing process of cell renewal, making this a safe and unique approach to hair restoration.

How Does PRP Work?

Human blood contains stem cells and growth factors that stimulate healing and renewal of several components of the skin appendages and anatomy, including hair follicles and collagen. For more than two decades, international medical literature confirms the safety and utility of PRP therapy in several fields, including hair restoration, wound healing, oral surgery, neurosurgery, dermatology and aesthetic surgery (i.e. acne scars, sun damaged skin, wrinkles), sports medicine and orthopedics.  

How Is The Procedure Performed?

Dr. Baron, also experienced in phlebotomy and laboratory science since 1996, draws samples of blood from the patient and spins these in a centrifuge in her lab/clinic.  The process is virtually pain-free, and measures are taken to maintain comfort, including regional anesthetics and warm compresses to increase scalp circulation.  She then separates the activated platelet-rich plasma and injects this into the scalp.  The procedure is repeated approximately 6 weeks later, and then semi-annually if desired.  New hair growth is usually seen within 3 - 4 months, a similar outcome time-frame as with surgical hair transplantation.  These results are optimized when combined with topical and oral therapy to reduce hair shedding while the new hair is restored.
