Study: Treatment of Male Pattern Baldness with Botulinum Toxin: A Pilot Study

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Comment by Ethan:

This study is important because it reminds us that T conversion to DHT occurs in low oxygen environments, that the muscles (or anything) that constricts blood flow also reduces the availability of Oxygen in the scalp and dermal papilla.  Thus, relaxing these muscles, via botox (something I would not recommend since botox is a toxin), other approaches to relax the muscles and/or increase circulation and Oxygen levels include: various types of scalp massages, acupuncture, diet and nutrition, reducing inflammation, relaxation exercises etc is helpful to men with hair loss resulting from a genetic sensitivity to DHT.
