Dr. Baron Educates Other Doctors at Local Hospital on Risks of UV Exposure

As both a medical and procedural dermatologist, Dr. Baron's focus is treatment and reversal of skin and collagen damage stemming from overexposure to the sun. Last fall, she was invited to present her educational lecture to Stanford University Family Practice residents and other doctors and nurses at O'Connor Hospital in San Jose.  Her presentation, entitled "UV-A's, B's, and C's," provided a specialist's perspective on effective protection from and cosequences of too much ultraviolet sun radiation.

Hair Restoration with PRP

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.
