Losing your Hair?
Can Help17.- Nov,

"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 (dihydrotestoserone),"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."

tem can hold the equivalent of 12-16
plastic bags.
"It's all about eliminating plastic and
keeping it out of the landfills," Adelman
The bags and travel systems range
in price from $7.99-$249.99. Sacs of
Life products are sold on the shopping
network QVC. They also can be found
at Staples, Bed Bath & Beyond and
Adelman says a new line of the bags
made of faux leather and fur is coming
out soon. She recently handed them
out to celebrities at the Golden Globes
awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
"I have a passion for what I do," she
says. "When I see these celebrities
and other people who love the bags, it
makes me say,'Wow, I really can make
a difference and be environmentally
friendly and offer great style and a
great look: You can be organized, styl-
ish, functional and eco friendly all at
the same time!"

Green Glamour
In Birmingham, two health- and Earth-
conscious Jewish moms started their
own eco-chic venture selling green

glamour. Carra Stoller, 35, of Sylvan
Lake and her sister-in-law Marla
Shapiro, 41, of West Bloomfield opened
Ecology on Old Woodward Avenue
in September 2010. The store carries
organic and natural skin care products
and cosmetics from across the world.
They include brand names you've
probably never heard of like Evolvh
haircare, Red Flower, Alima Pure and
Patyka. The companies use ingredients
like grape seed, Turkish rose and white
tea. Stoller says they try to keep prices
affordable; customers can purchase the
essentials for less than $200.
The store focuses exclusively on lines
that are free of harmful chemicals like
lead in lipstick, and formaldehyde and
parabens in other cosmetics. One corn-
pany claims the products are so safe
you can eat them. Stoller is a former
corporate attorney; Shapiro was once
a car dealership manager. They both
gave up their previous careers to open
the upscale boutique.
"It was always my dream to own a
makeup and skincare store," Stoller
explains. "We opened Ecology because
there was no place women could go to
get truly organic and natural beauty
