The Year In Hair - 4 Key Developments

Now that 2010 is almost at an end, it's worth looking back at the "Year In Hair." After all, several important new tests and treatments became available this year.

Here are my picks:

#1:  NeoGraft FUE. The revolutionary NeoGraft™ hair transplant device allows surgeons to efficiently harvest follicles individually from the back of the scalp, leaving no linear scar.

#2:  LaserCap™. First device to deliver ‘clinical-grade’ low level laser therapy in a convenient, at-home device.

#3:  HairCheck™. Scientifically-proven way to measure Hair Mass Index (HairNumber™), an indicator of how much hair is growing from a given area of scalp for comparison over time. Also accurately measures hair-breakage, a common cause of hair loss in women.

#4:  Finasteride Test for Women. The first finasteride response test became available for women, which uses genetics to determine how well female hair loss sufferers will respond to Propecia treatments.
