Botox can cure hair loss?

Botox cure hair loss?

"Balding men may be offered a cure for their thinning heads — injections of Botox.

The toxic chemicals are generally used to smooth out wrinkles, but doctors have discovered it can regrow hair too.

The treatment was discovered by accident — Dr. Simon Ourian in Beverly Hills, Calif., was trying to cure his mother’s headaches. Botox is used off-label to treat migraines, and Ourian’s mother, a cancer victim, was going through chemotherapy.

After injecting Botox into her scalp, Ourian was stunned to see his mother’s hair regrow. Botox dilates the blood vessels, which allows nutrients into the hair shaft and stimulates new growth.

Ourian tested his theory on volunteers for three years, and although the treatment needs repeated injections, he has a “dramatic” difference.

“I was happily surprised,” Ourian said. “As hair loss is a significant source of insecurity, there was no shortage of volunteers.”

A cancer victim isn’t a patient with MPB… and being that there’s no specific information in this article, I don’t know how effective botox can be for balding men.

i think he must have tested it on men with MPB or he wouldn’t come out saying it can be a cure,unless he’s a scammer

This was written off a long time ago, and now we have this salesman who came along to say it’s promising. I’m sold, sign me up.

Well, FOXnews is the source so that gives slight credibility to the story. Having said that, there’s no additional information provided in the article stating how many patients he treated and how many of them saw results (and what kind of results they were).

For me, a picture is worth a thousand words. If this man’s attempts were that promising than fox news wouldn’t have to use a stock photo of a bald head :(.
