  1. DS Healthcare Group Inc. a leading developer of personal care products, announced that it has developed and will launch an over-the-counter neutraceutical tablet to combat premature hair thinning and improve healthy hair growth. Sold under the DS Laboratories brand, the tablet will complement and extend the company's industry-leading topical treatments, which promote longer, stronger, thicker hair. The new DS Laboratories tablet will launch in Mexico during the first quarter of 2014. It will expand worldwide through the company's growing network of foreign markets. DS Laboratories products already sell in more than 15 countries as part of a rapid global expansion. The new oral supplement employs a novel approach within the thinning-hair category -- complex peptides with potent antioxidants -- to maximize efficacy and potency. This formula results from ongoing clinical research at DS Healthcare Group on hair loss and related conditions. "We've developed our own proprietary tablet, which contains a unique composition of ingredients, to achieve a real breakthrough in neutraceutical research," stated DS Healthcare President and CEO Daniel Khesin.

  2. Scientists have found that many of those suffering from hair loss or balding have skin tissue in the scalp that has an oxygen deficiency – a condition called hypoxia. Kérastase Densifique Hair Loss Treament They have developed a molecule called stemoxydine that targets this condition by attempting to increase oxygen levels in the scalp. The increase aims to help follicles to produce thicker hair and stimulate hair growth in areas where the follicles have shut down. The Kérastase Densifique cream, which costs £285 for a three-month treatment, is applied to the hair daily. It is put into damp or dry hair using an applicator and then massaged into the scalp. The maker L’Oreal, which developed it in its hair laboratory in Paris, claim that it is clinically proven to be effective for both men and women. In a study, 101 people who used the product once a day for three months found a four per cent increase in the number of hairs they had, which represent an average of 1,700 new hairs. After 90 days researchers claim that the liquid "Kérastase Densifique", when applied to the roots, can promote the growth of more than 1500 new hairs. Patricia Pineau, head of scientific affairs at L’Oréal, said: ‘We’ve known for 100 years that hair grows and falls out. We haven’t known what makes hair regenerate until now. It is all about hair stem cell environment. In 2000, we have published the existence of two stem cell reservoirs in the hair and, more recently, we have both identified the optimal environment and designed a molecule able to favour it. Kérastase Densifique is a result of this discovery that happens not very often. We have been able to develop a cosmetic product that respects the natural way hair regenerates. Complete article
  3. Cosmetic surgery is on the rise as the ASPS reported last week that 13.8 million cosmetic procedures were performed in 2011. Two years in a row, the plastic surgery market has shown much growth, reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) this February. ASPS reported a five percent increase in surgeries in 2011, despite the uncertainty of the economy and the debt crisis. "The generations are aging, and the demand for cosmetic and reconstructive procedures is in much higher demand," says medical director of Beverly Hills Hair Restoration. Dr. John Kahen M.D. recommends these three quick tips when doing research for a surgeon. 1. Research the procedure and be certain it's the procedure the patient wants Dr. Kahen recommends researching the procedure to have a basic understanding of what will be performed. "This will help during the consultation, so you can be sure you are getting all your questions answered to make you feel as comfortable and secure in your decision as possible." 2. Consider Traveling If the patient is in an area where there are not many skilled surgeons, Dr. Kahen recommends traveling outside the city for the right clinic and surgeon. "If you aren't finding the top surgeons in your town," he says, "it might be time to branch out to other areas and consider traveling." Dr. Kahen offers travel incentives that include full coverage of airfare and hotel for patients traveling to him for hair transplant procedures. 3. Have realistic expectations It's crucial the surgeon explain what the patient should expect before the surgery, during and after, as well as be completely transparent about the results from the procedure. "Unrealistic expectations about results from the procedure either by the surgeon or the patient is a red flag. You have a right to know what to expect from the procedure," he said. Full article
  4. AnaGain, Mibelle Biochemistry’s new active ingredient, is derived from sprouts of organic pea and has been designed to reduce hair loss by inducing dermal papilla cells to reactivate hair growth. Based on sprouts of organic pea, AnaGain™ reduces hair loss by inducing dermal papilla cells to reactivate hair growth. Hair loss affects both women and men. It is caused by an imbalance of the hair growth cycle leading to a reduced number of growing (anagen) hair combined with an increased number of degenerating (telogen) ones. AnaGain™ was shown, thanks to DNA microarray analysis of plucked hair follicles, to activate, in the dermal papilla, specific signal molecules which are required to initiate the growth of a new hair. Thanks to its double action, AnaGain™ successfully boosts the expression of the noggin gene, which results in a shorter resting period and it also enhances the expression of the fibroblast growth factor-7 gene. This in turn stimulates the proliferation of hair germ cells to trigger the anagen growth phase. A clinical study conducted for three months on volunteers with mild to moderate hair loss showed the capacity of AnaGain™ to reduce hair loss: • the density of anagen hair was increased by about 8 % • the density of telogen hair was reduced by more than 28 %. • As a consequence, AnaGain™ increased the hair growth coefficient (proportion of active hair follicles) from 4 to 7.2 indicating a strong hair-regrowing effect.

  5. A new research report appearing online in The FASEB Journal shows how the FDA-approved glaucoma drug, bimatoprost, causes human hair to regrow. It's been commercially available as a way to lengthen eyelashes, but these data are the first to show that it can actually grow human hair from the scalp. "We hope this study will lead to the development of a new therapy for balding which should improve the quality of life for many people with hair loss," said Valerie Randall, a researcher involved in the work from the University of Bradford, Bradford, UK. "Further research should increase our understanding of how hair follicles work and thereby allow new therapeutic approaches for many hair growth disorders." To make this discovery, Randall and colleagues conducted three sets of experiments. Two involved human cells and the other involved mice. The tests on human cells involved using hair follicles growing in organ culture as well as those take directly from the human scalp. In both of these experiments, the scientists found that bimatoprost led to hair growth. The third set of experiments involved applying bimatoprost to the skin of bald spots on mice. As was the case with human cells, the drug caused hair to regrow. Full article
  6. Drugs for blood pressure, acne, depression – even common painkillers – can lead to hair loss, according to a report by scientists at the University of Melbourne. And other drugs can turn a brunette into a redhead, or make straight hair curly. Hair loss or thinning can occur up to a year after taking medication but, thankfully, in most cases, hair loss or any other changes are reversible. Doctors say it is important that patients see tsheir GP if they notice any unusual hair loss (do not stop taking any medication without seeing your doctor). They can be switched to other drugs, if appropriate, or the dose can be reduced. In other cases, patients can be reassured the effects are unlikely to be permanent. “The cause of hair loss or change is often unknown, but you must always consider the effects of drugs,” says Professor Sam Shuster, professor of dermatology at Newcastle University. “When drugs do affect the hair, the change is usually mild and reverses when the drug is stopped. So you may want to tolerate the change, because of the important effect the drug is having in restoring your health.’ It’s well known, for instance, that chemotherapy drugs kill cancer cells, but also attack other fast-growing cells in the body, such as hair roots. This is why patients can start to lose their hair within two to three weeks of starting treatment. The drugs can also affect texture and shade, research shows, but hair should re-grow three to 10 months after treatment has ended. In many cases, medications are thought to affect hair by interfering with its growth cycle, which has three distinct stages. In the growing period, which lasts between three and five years on the scalp, hair grows by around 1cm a month. That’s followed by a shorter, two-week stage, known as the intermediate phase, where the hair follicle is prepared for releasing the hair. In the final, three-month phase — the telogen phase or ‘resting’ phase — the hair stops growing and eventually falls out. After three months, the follicle starts to grow a new hair. Fortunately, this happens randomly all over the scalp. If it didn’t, the hair would be shed in clumps. Here we reveal the drugs that may be causing your hair to change … Complete article

  8. Dubai Hair doctors in the UAE are a busy lot as a large segment of the expatriate population believes that the water here contributes to hair loss. "I found this clump of hair in the bathtub one day and it scared me," said one Indian expatriate who came to Dubai to work more than a year ago. She believes it is because of the desalinated water. "I had such thick hair. It's now thinning so badly." Trichologist Mike Ryan, a hair expert in Dubai, said there were 50 reasons for hair loss, from life's daily stresses, bad diet, thyroid problems — mostly among women — to genetics. He said a number of people also suffered from scalp disorders. Get a shower filter For starters, if you believed it was due to the bath water, then get a shower filter, the expert advised. That would cut out the calcium, chlorine and silica in the water from getting to your hair. The dry weather here, not drinking enough water and dyeing and colouring hair with chemicals were among the other factors involved in hair loss, says Hassan Mokadem, a consultant at Direct Hair Implantation. "Do you know that we lose 80 to 120 hairs every day? It is psychological; people panic when they see the hair in the shower," he said. A survey by Inversion Femme, an anti-ageing supplement manufacturer, showed that hair loss among women is a major concern, more than gaining weight. Complete hair loss article

  10. An open house dedicated to women who lose their hair from chemotherapy and other medical treatments will be offered January 11th from 5PM – 7PM at Samson Inc., 2056 West Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60622. The open house is sponsored by Recover with Confidence™, a National Organization of Hair Loss professionals committed to helping women through this difficult time in their lives, and in partnership with Samson Inc., a leading specialist in providing wigs for women who lose their hair from medical treatments, also on hand will be oncology nurses, their patients, and women’s medical hair loss professionals. Women who are undergoing, or are about to undergo, medical treatments that will cause temporary hair loss are invited to attend, as are their friends and relatives. Also invited are members of the medical community and other caregivers who serve female cancer patients. The focus of the open house is to inform the oncology community and its patients about the alternatives available to women who will lose their hair when undergoing medical treatments. “Many oncologists and nurses have told me that one of the biggest obstacles that women face when they’re diagnosed with cancer and have to undergo chemotherapy is “what about my hair?” said Rhonda McCarthy, director of communications for Recover with Confidence. “As difficult as it may be for a woman facing a potentially life-threatening disease, the prospect of losing her hair adds to her anxieties”, according to McCarthy, “many women feel overwhelmed at the thought of having to deal with hair loss along with everything else. “We put on these open houses around the country to ease a woman’s anxiety and make this as easy as we can for her”, concluded McCarthy; “a woman facing chemotherapy or other treatments has enough things on her mind. Her hair loss shouldn’t be one of them.” Complete article
  11. Italian prosecutors said on Wednesday they were investigating a popular Swiss hair product, saying there was "no scientific evidence it helps hair grow back." The product -- known as "Crescina" -- is widely advertised and sold in pharmacies and cosmetic stores. One of its ads confusingly features football star Ronaldo, who used to shave his head but has now let his hair grow. The alleged crime being investigated is commercial fraud as "Crescina" -- the name is a play on the Italian word for "growth" -- was being advertised in Italy as having hair-growing properties, prosecutors said. Investigators said they had commissioned their own scientific research, pointing out that if it did work if would have to be classified as a "medicine" instead of a "cosmetic" and would therefore be subject to stricter controls. "Crescina" is produced by the Swiss company Labo Cosprophar Suisse, which also makes supposedly anti-ageing products. It holds 75 trademarks and 17 patents and its Italian branch manages exports to 30 countries around Europe. Complete article
  12. An unidentified man in Colorado has filed suit against the maker of Propecia, claiming the male baldness drug caused him to suffer erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems. The claim, brought in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, is just the latest Propecia lawsuit filed against Merck & Co. by men who say that the drug caused sexual issues. Propecia (known generically as finasteride 1 mg) is part of a class of drugs called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors, or 5-ARIs. Other drugs in this class including Merck’s Proscar (finasteride 5 mg), and GlaxoSmithKline’s Avodart (dutasteride) and Jalyn (dutasteride and tamsulosin) are manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. While Propecia is used to treat male pattern baldness, other 5 ARIs are used to treat enlarged prostate. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), almost 5 million men were prescribed one of these medications between 2002 and 2009. Propecia and these other drugs work by preventing the conversion of androgen testosterone to DHT, a hormone critical to male sexual performance. Merck’s label for Propecia warns that side effects may include sexual dysfunction but says the side effects “resolve after discontinued use of the drug.” While the Propecia label in Europe was updated in 2008 to warn of “persistent” sexual side effects, no such update has occurred in the U.S. In March, a group of researchers at Boston University published a study finding that in a small number of cases, erectile dysfunction linked to 5-ARIs may continue after the drugs have been discontinued. The study, which involved a review of available medical literature, found that 8 percent of men taking 5-ARIs reported erectile dysfunction and 4.2 percent reported reduced libido. In the placebo group, only 4 percent reported erectile dysfunction, while only 1.8 percent reported reduced libido. Other men taking the drugs reported reduced ejaculation and semen volume and depression. In some cases, men experienced problems after taking the drugs. Complete Propecia article
