From my own experiences, this is what I think is happening. I could also be completely wrong. Too many toes are being stepped on, and someone has probably made a complaint. I am referring to someone in the industry. You simply cannot make a medical claim for an unproven thearapy. It’s against the law and the FDA will crack down on you in a split second.

Even with off label use of prescripton medicines, new uses are not advertised as such. Growing hair is a medical claim.

unproven claims to re-grow hair not not illegal… just take a look at all the scam products being sold legally which make precisely that claim…

but that’s because they indeed work

You are mistaken. It’s all about the wording of the advertisement. Creative companies know exactly how to word the advertisement to avoid the wrath of the FDA or FTC and still get the public to believe they are getting something they are not. The products you are referring to, that are not approved medications, do not make medical claims. Just read the wording of the ad.

The FDA & FTC have put plenty of people out to business and in jail. Do a little research, and you will be surprised at what you find.

Again, just to let everyone know: the patient in that article is treated for Alopecia Areata (AA) which is a completely different condition than Andogenic Alopcia (AGA), with completely different causes. It is generally a temporary condition which resolves by itself in a matter of months without any treatment.

Thank you for your update! Are you still on Propecia? Are you using anything else? Did you start or stop any other treatments recently?

Thank you Doc.

Do you have any new about this treatment treatment.
we would like to see some photos of some patient and (I hope) the results…
Thank you doc
We hope that you respond soon!
Bye from Italy

It’s kind of hard to judge from the pics, do you feel any difference after 6 weeks?

Thanks for the update.

It looks like the after picture has less hair. :frowning:

I think it’s too early to tell, but I thought I would post some initial pictures.
I’m on Avodart .5 mg daily and minox 6%, but this has not changed for 4 years.
Hopefully will post some other patient pictures over the next few weeks as well,
Dr. Jones

I agree the after pic does appear a bit thinner. Could there be a reason for that? Maybe just the lighting or angle?


#16

I don’t see how you could possibly do the “stimulation” part without knocking out a bunch of existing hairs.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to argue that the final net result isn’t more hair by the time it all grows back out again. But use common sense - doing that much needling to your scalp is gonna whack a lot of existing hairs in the process.

Not that photos mean anything without a hair count (but I’m sure you know that), but I see no difference between those two. In fact, I’d say the 6 week photo actually looks worse - it appears less dense.

It looks like his 6 week photo was taken with his hair wet (kind of). Good or bad, I appreciate the update, I wasn’t expecting a miracle cure anyway.

It looks like the befor pic is a crown shot and the after is a frontal. Please post shots of the same angle
