Hair Loss: Does it Bother You?

While hair loss doesn’t happen to all men, it does happen to a good number of males from all walks of life and a variety of ages. Hair loss does seem to have an effect on the self-confidence of males.

Can Stem Cells Aid In Regenerative Medicine For Patients?

The Psychological Effect On Hair Loss On Women

Women Hair Loss

While we recently took a look at the psychological effects on hair loss on men, it’s important to remember that women suffer from hair loss as well. Hair loss can be especially hard on women as a full head of hair is often viewed as a symbol of beauty, youth and femininity to others.
