Did you know that by the age of 35, more than 60 percent of men and nearly 40 percent of women will have experienced some degree of visible hair loss? While genetics and environmental factors contribute to this problem, all hope is not lost. At the Williams Center for Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer 82S by HairScience, a highly effective solution to androgenetic alopecia, or male/female pattern baldness. 82S contains a combination of natural extracts to help clean, condition and nourish hair, while actively reducing hair loss at the same time.
After years of research into the causes of hair loss, scientists have concluded that one of the major contributors to androgenetic alopecia is dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the result of a conversion of testosterone via a specific enzyme. This particular enzyme is found in the oil glands of the hair follicle, and when DHT binds to the hair follicle, it causes it to shrink – making it impossible for healthy hair to survive.
The magic of 82S comes from the extract of Saw Palmetto, which is botanically-derived. Saw Palmetto extract helps to naturally inhibit the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT, which in turn reduces the production of DHT and therefore helps to prevent hair loss. Not only does 82S actively prevent hair loss, but it also contains a blend of other natural extracts, vitamins and amino acids that help to strengthen both new and existing hair. The formulation is free of sulfates, parabens and sodium chloride, and is made from eco-certified ingredients proven to leave your hair healthy, shiny and full of life.
