Hair loss (alopecia) is a progressive condition that has different forms and causes. The most common hair loss type, known as androgenetic alopecia, is hereditary. If left untreated, hair loss usually progresses over time.

Hair Loss is a progressive condition that affects both men and women. It has many forms and reasons why it can happen. Through the advent of PharmacoGenetic testing we are able to analyze 48 gene variations and lifestyle factors which will facilitate understanding of the specific characteristics of your metabolism which contribute to hair loss.

We are able to identify options across 7 different treatment categories such as prostaglandin metabolism, inflammation, collagen synthesis etc. This ability takes us away from the traditional trial and error format and toward truly personalized medicine. Based on your results, Dr Stavros and Dr Jason will confer and decide on the optimal pharmaceutical formulation for each and every patient. A personalized prescription designed only for you based on your unique genetic makeup.

As a leader in the hair restoration field, Bay Med Hair and Aesthetics is now the first in Florida and one of the first in the U.S. to offer the newest and most advanced development in supporting the medical assessment and treatment of hair loss. We offer a genetic test performed on a patient’s own DNA that analyzes 13 genes and 48 genetic variations which can help guide treatment of a patient’s alopecia, whether due to male/female pattern androgenic hair loss, alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, or certain forms of scarring alopecia.
