Did you know?

Hair loss affects over 80% of men and half of all women over 50 years of age. That’s roughly 60 million men and 40 million women; YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This can be devastating emotionally, socially, and professionally. We provide cutting edge products and services to battle this nemesis.

TOP 10 MYTHS ABOUT LOSING HAIR

  • Loss of hair is a problem only men have to face
  • There is no such thing as female pattern baldness
  • Thinning hair is only a problem for older women
  • Loss is caused by brushing hair too often
  • Loss is caused by washing hair too often
  • Loss is a result of bleaching and/or dyeing hair
  • You can grow new hair by standing on your head
  • Your hair will grow back thicker if you shave your head
  • Wearing hats causes balding
  • There is no way to treat female pattern baldness

GENETIC HAIR LOSS TEST is performed to determine if one is at risk for androgenic loss (most common) and likely to respond to anti-androgen therapy. That way, one can make better treatment and dollar decisions based upon what is most likely to work.

Why should you take the Genetic Hair Loss Test today?

  • The test predicts your risk for loss or thinning with up to an 80% positive and 90% negative likelihood
