Can Shampoo Help With Hair Loss?

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

A Man Looking Happy and Washing His HairHere at US Hair Restoration, we often get phone calls and emails regarding different hair loss shampoos which propose major claims to successfully re-grow hair, or prevent hair loss. Some of these products maintain having ingredients such as Minoxidil, which actually is a proven hair loss medication. The setback of the majority of these products and claims has to do with the duration of time which they remain on the scalp. In order for them to work properly, they must remain on the scalp for a length of time which is needed to be absorbed into the skin.

Of all the topical hair loss products available today, Minoxidil is the most effective. At US Hair Restoration we recommend the simple use of it being applied twice a day, and then left on the scalp for maximizing its effectiveness. There are many products which advertise their contents having minerals and vitamins which have no true effectiveness, because the ingredients are not absorbed by the skin on the scalp. There are several brands to choose from with big claims, but Minoxidil is the only one which is FDA approved and actually proven to prevent hair loss.

What Is The Laxometer II

Monday, November 7th, 2011

There are often occasions when we receive inquiries about the latest hair transplant technology, and we feel an obligation to spread the news about these current updates.  The field of hair restoration now has the new generation of Laxometer, which is the newest hair transplant device invented by Dr. Parsa Mohebi. The Laxometer II is a handheld tool which transforms the art and science of hair restoration. Since hair restoration is a growing sector of the cosmetic surgery arena, progressive updates on hair transplant new technology is necessary.

What Does It Do?

The Laxometer II enhances the quantity of hair grafts which can be transplanted precisely in one surgery. Once upon a time hair transplants of more than 3500 follicular grafts took more than one surgery to complete. With this revolutionary latest technology in hair transplantation, surgeries as such can be done in merely one procedure.

Being the newest technology in the hair transplant industry, the Laxometer II is a measuring device which is used to determine the laxity (elasticity) of one’s scalp. An accurate measurement of scalp laxity is critical when giving a precise determination of how large the donor strip should be. This latest breakthrough hair transplant technology gives a calculated measurement which can be increased when patients consistently do scalp exercises daily. The larger the available strip size, the more hair follicles can be transplanted.

During the 2011 International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s (ISHRS) Annual Scientific meeting in Alaska, Parsa Mohebi M.D. released this brand new invention for purchase by hair transplant surgeons. This latest technology in hair transplant surgery was warmly received with great anticipation and applause as it is going to help to continue the industry moving forward into a greater realm of success.
