Losing your Hair?
e Can Help.



'•-• ........

"Hair is everywhere — my comb, floor, drain, clothes ... is this normal?"
"I think I can actually see through my hair."
Suzanne Tedesco, a certified laser therapist, has been hearing these con-
cerns from men and women for 5 years when they first call or visit Michi-
gan Hair and Skin Center in Troy. Many are frustrated because they can diet
and exercise to help control their shape, and they can keep their smiles
healthy with regular dental care, but they feel a total loss of control over
their thinning hair."All of our clients have stopped losing hair and experi-
enced regrowth,"she says.
The Michigan Hair and Skin Center uses an FDA-approved system of
low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to reverse hair loss, and make thin weak hair
thicker and healthier. Most importantly, LLLT actually re-grows hair with-
out surgery, implants, drugs, or invasive practices.
LLLT is medically tested and proven to be safe and effective. A study
published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic
Dermatology showed a 93 percent increase in hair among the respon-
dents using the laser."Thinning hair occurs when the follicles are stran-
gled by excessive DHT (di hydrotestoserone),"Tedesco explains."The laser
breaks away the DHT, allowing the hair follicles to get the nutrients nec-
essary to re-grow hair."
In fact, she says,"Anyone who still has active hair follicles can benefit
from laser therapy. Even where hair isn't visible, active follicles may still be
present, making re-growth a possibility. Of course, follicles die after a few
years, so the sooner someone seeks treatment, the better."
LLLT isn't a fad or gimmick. It has been used in Europe for more than 20
years, and has been featured on Dateline, the ABC news, MSNBC, and in
Women's Health and Men's Health magazines. Recently, there was a laser
hair therapy segment on CBS-TV's The Doctors, and Barbara Walters of
The View called it a "hot new product."
The Michigan Hair and Skin Center in Troy uses Michigan's only pre-
mium LLLT machine.The machine's 451 lasers are housed in a salon hair
dryer-like cap, and they stimulate hair growth over the entire scalp."Simi-
lar to how sunlight stimulates the body to produce melanin, resulting in
a tan, the laser light stimulates the follicles to re-grow hair,"Tedesco says.
"It simply helps the body heal itself."

Youth athletes compete in last year's Pee Wee Reese Championship game.

Arthur Horwitz, founder and presi-
dent of Renaissance Media, the parent
company of the Detroit Jewish News,
was elected to the Think Detroit PAL
board of directors in October 2011.

Touching All The Bases
Teaching the fundamentals of base-
ball is only part of the goal of Think
Detroit PAL. The program is also
meant to help build character in chil-
dren, parents and volunteers. Coaches
go through intensive "impact train-
ing" classes to learn how to be good
role models. Detroit police officers are
involved; several are on staff.
"People don't realize how impres-
sionable kids are' Reznik says. "They
are going to emulate their coaches.
We make sure our coaches realize that
while it's OK to be competitive, it's also
about sportsmanship, shaking hands
after the game and things like that.
Anything we can do to motivate kids
and be a positive influence so they
can become better athletes and better
Think Detroit PAL also maintains
many of its recreational athletic fields.
Reznik has seen some amazing trans-
formations on those fields. One exam-
ple is Mark Brown, a Martin Luther
King High School graduate who was

drafted by the Cleveland Indians in
2010. The 5-foot-9-inch leftie first
started playing in 1996.
"He was 6 years old:' Reznik recalls.
"We took him to a tournament in
Indiana, and he struck out and cried."
But, Brown stuck with baseball and
12 years later became a professional
athlete. He also took part in a Major
League Baseball-sponsored program
called Detroit RBI (Reviving Baseball
in Inner Cities), which he credits with
"changing his life."
"If I wasn't playing baseball, there's no
telling what I could be doing in Detroit:"
Brown is quoted as saying. "There are a
lot of distractions going on"
As a new baseball season begins,
Reznik, his coaches, umpires and vol-
unteers will be encouraging hundreds
of young people to keep their eye on
the ball — where there's no room for
distraction — and no time for trouble.
"If I can help in any way possible,
I'm gonna help:' Reznik says. "I'm just
trying to do my part to make Detroit
a safer place to be."
