Don`t expect too much from this therapy. Some people here in germany tried it :

I did it 6 months ago and i don`t see any significant regrow in my hairline… But the docs say that you have to do 3 sessions to get the best results. Next week i have my second session…

Yet another broken dream :crying:

Scalp pressure etc

Such a theory seems completely wacky. Blood flow is said to be a crucial point for the hair to be supplied with the nutrients it needs. Hence the advice: work your scalp muscles either by massaging it or doing scalp exercices. And now, some other guys come in and say: inhibit the muscles with botulin toxine. This is complete BS I think. Botox is already advised against in the subocular area because of the blocking of the lymphatic draining glands… so…

It does in a roundabout way.

There are well known connections with increasing the scalp circulation, and improving hair loss from MPB. But we know that it doesn’t seem to be an issue of any “direct” nutrient supply to follicles, because of the “normal” growth of transplanted follicles to the same area.

In this case the idea is to relieve the tightness of the tissue that is claimed to constrict blood vessels. This would reduce the build up of fluid pressure that causes MPB (according to my theory). But i think there are safer and cheaper ways to do this.

Tom’s exercises at hairloss is reversable, and regular massage will get you the same effect in my opinion.

According to my theory, it is DHT initiated lymphedema in the MPB area that is the cause of MPB. I think this is supported also by the latest development of lasers to treat MPB.

This kind of laser treatment has been shown to significantly improve fluid movement in lymphedema. Lasers also seem to help with the fibrosis issue.

However, i still think that you also need to reduce levels of the DHT “trigger” to get the maximum benefits.

Do you know which muscles were targeted ?


#10

There is no picture in that patent, or a page 7 either…

some kind of joke?


#11

Did it really regrow hair in front of the hairline . . .

Or did the muscles just pull the scalp 1 cm further down the forhead?


#12

It is there, download the PDF and look at Page 7

Or look at the bottom of http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect2=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&d=PALL&RefSrch=yes&Query=PN%2F6299893

The tissue environment surrounding the hair follicles is chiefly governed by factors such as local oxygen supply, nutrients and biochemical mediators. The relative concentration of these factors as well as the biochemical reactions they are involved in is quite dependent on the blood supply to the tissues. By using the arterial vessels as described above, blood supply is provided to the central areas of the scalp from the periphery. The inventors have found that injection of a presynaptic neurotoxin improves the tissue environment surrounding the hair follicles by reducing scalp tension and, by doing so, improves bloodflow through the arteries. In turn, the tension in hair-bearing tissue is reduce and hair growth is stimulated.

For illustrative purposes in using the invention, the following is an actual case study in the use of the invention: A healthy 39 year old non-smoker with Hamilton class V male pattern baldness was injected instramuscularly with 100 units BTX-A diluted to 10 units per 0.1 ml in normal saline. The frontal, temporal, peri-auricular and occipital muscles were injected with a fine gauge hypodermic needle in a circumferential manner around the periphery of the scalp as described above. The vertex was photographed as well, position of frontal sentinel hairs and average daily hair loss collected in a fine toothed comb. At 6 months scalp tension increased and a further 100 unite of botulinim toxin A was injected in a manner similar to the first injection. At 1 year, post treatment, daily hair loss was reduced by 76 percent and the frontal sentinel hair was 1 cm forward of its predecessor

We can ask some pictures about this case…?
on internet we can read everywhere about new researches like this, but without evidences… follica, aderans, icx, acell… they all have a solution but we can’t see that… seems to be a joke :stuck_out_tongue:
