The Complete Book of Hair Loss Answers by Peter J. Panagotacos M.D.


Book Description:
This book is the most comprehensive and authoritative lay person’s guide to hair loss treatments on the market today. It is written by a board-certified dermatologist and internationally recognized expert with thirty-five years experience and thousands of successful surgeries to his credit. It covers all the most common modern techniques in clear, non-technical language, and uses many drawings and photographs to illustrate hair loss conditions and surgical techniques. It looks at the many myths and misunderstandings around hair loss, and shows which treatments work best for different types of hair loss. It is applicable to men suffering from male pattern baldness, but it also covers hair loss conditions common to women. It contains many real-life photos and stories of actual patients, some in their own words, and debunks the many bogus treatments that have flooded the market recently. It gives readers the scientific background knowledge they require to intelligently select the right medication or surgeon, and also explains hair cloning and other medical advances that may be just over the horizon of current treatment.
