53 – Hair loss treatments cause excessive growth of body hair?
Scalp hair and body hair respond in two different ways. Androgens and all other factors that cause hair loss on the scalp cause excessive growth on the body. Therefore all patients having hair loss on the head have excessive growth on the body. We achieve good hair growth on the scalp because we stimulate the hair growth with laser, Minoxidil, lotions etc. Then the stimulated cells are supported with vitamins. We do not use any such stimulation for the body hair, thus scalp treatments do not grow body hair.
