Baldness is one of the most obvious and psychologically damaging defects which men can suffer.
Especially if baldness strikes at a young age, sufferers can have huge confidence-losses and sometimes struggle to go out or be seen in public because of how they fear they look. Previously, the only solution, apart from a good hat or wig, was a hair transplant, but this is really only a solution for those with thinning hair. It can provide excellent coverage of balding areas, but for those with baldness spread over most of their head, this is not really a practical option. Well, never fear, because now it is being suggesting that Botox could not be a solution.
New research by a U.S –based specialist, Dr. Simon Ourian, used the non-invasive cosmetic treatment of his mother who was undergoing chemotherapy at the time. The doctor has originally intended to make use of Botox’s anti-migraine qualities and yet he has made an even more startling discovery. He found that, when the drug was injected into his ill-mothers scalp that hair started to grow back. This result obviously astonished and baffled Ourian in equal turn and thus he set out to research the uses of Botox for balding patients. He found that there was a queue of people waiting to try it out:
“Because hair loss is a significant source of insecurity for many people, both men and women, there was no shortage of volunteers with thinning hair. The results for many were astonishing, and for some, a single session yielded dramatic results.”
This news, if it is found to be viable and true, will send shockwaves of excitement throughout the cosmetic surgery industry and is likely to induce a plethora of new treatments which will be offered to both men and women with receding hair lines or thinning hair. The news will also be welcomed by Botox makers Allegran, who days before this discovery announced strong sales of its product around the world to both men and women. This new found use for the wonder-treatment will only increase these sales figures and, even though we are in the midst of a recession, Allegran is likely to be the main financial benefactor from Ourian’s discovery. Money issues aside, many balding people will be overjoyed that a new, and much cheaper, alternative to full hair transplant may soon be on the market. Wig manufacturers may be less pleased by the news.
