May 18, 2017, 12:00 ET LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — After 25 years of dedicated research, development and clinical treatment, Dr. Robert Nettles (initially a hair transplant surgeon who himself suffered from androgenetic alopecia) developed a new generation of precision medicines that are personalized, proactive and reverse the hair loss process in what is the most revolutionary medical breakthrough of our time.
Why was Dr. Nettles able to make this discovery when so many others have tried and failed? As Plato says, “necessity is the mother of invention.”
“At a young age, I saw first my father, then older brothers thin, then bald. Deducing a similar future for myself, I started researching genetic inheritance patterns and DNA, later training in hair transplant surgery, including working alongside pioneers of the FUE method. I soon realized that transplants do not stop the progress of hair loss, and had an AHA moment when discovering that just as we now know good and bad types of cholesterol, so testosterone also has good and bad components, and the ratio between them would lead to my ultimate discovery of precision medicine.”
The difference between Dr. Nettles’ approach and what others are working on is the focus. While everyone else is caught up trying to treat the symptoms or clone the hair follicle — Dr. Nettles has been laser-focused on discovering, then resolving the root cause of hair loss (an inherited chemical imbalance within our bodies).
