Doctor Finds Botox an Effective Treatment for Baldness

June 24, 2009

(ChattahBox) — A cosmetic surgeon based in Beverly Hills, California, claims Botox may be a way to effectively treat baldness. Dr Simon Ourian, says that he stumbled upon Botox as a remedy, while treating his mother who was suffering from migraines after having chemotherapy which had made her hair fall out.  He was surprised to find that it also appeared to help her hair to grow back.He then decided to test volunteers, and tweaked the formula with a mixture of vitamins to make the process more effective and over three years has gotten good results.

“With my patients these Botox vitamin injections for baldness have been very safe and more effective than anything I have seen before,” he Dr Ourian.

The treatment needs repeated injections, but it gave significant results after just one session. The theory is that by dilating blood vessels, Botox, a relaxant, allows nutrients into shrunk follicles by dilating the blood vessels. If his claims are proved in formal scientific trials it could potentially be used as the basis for new treatments for baldness.
