Involvement Of Mechanical Stress In Androgenetic Alopecia | Von Mises 2d Analysis Models

Most of the articles I reviewed on this subject suggest that there is a feedback loop between tension and androgen expression, whereby tension causes inflammation and increased androgen production/sensitivity, and then androgens through inflammation and muscle hypertrophy stimulate further tension.

And so the loop goes unless interrupted.

What are your best theories on how to interrupt this loop?

I know Segura suggested that botox may be an effective method in reducing mechanical stress:

I believe Rob @ PerfectHairHealth (Is that you IdealForehead?) recently interviewed Dr Brian Freund who executed a successful botox study on hair loss. I'd be interested to know what conclusions he drew from this:

There is not a single guy who can post pics and show that he regrew his hair doing massages. People have been trying it for 15 years ago without success. And if you want to believe in guys, who are selling ebooks about head massaging so be it. You can be delusional, all you want, I don't really care about you.

massages don't cure alopecia but act as reventive.

These stress visualisations are interesting but would be alot more digestible if they were mapped/textured on an actual scalp.

The botox treatment is too expensive.

I remember reading about a study in which they used a device that compressed the scalp upwards to against these forces and apparently there was some regrowth. I think it was done in japan.

Where can we find that head device?

The more Botox you get the weaker the muscles get over time due to it constantly getting paralyzed. It is the same with it getting done in the face, you need it less often the more you get it. I would totally do the Botox in the scalp if I could find a plastic surgeon that does it...

bruxism ( which cause hypertrophy of muscle face) should be related with hair loss is this theory was true and it isnt..

Hey bro, you seem to know what you’re doing and these are interesting but can you propose solution on how to reduce the stress/tension?
