How can i remove dht from my scalp and body and stop if from being produced?

How can i remove dht from my scalp and body and stop if from being produced?

Testosterone: I assume you are having problems with male-pattern baldness. The 5-alpha DHT is not on your scalp. It is inside your bloodstream and tissues. You cannot "wash it off your scalp." It is produced by your testes. If your hair loss is concerning enough, your doctor can prescribe a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, such as Propecia, (finasteride) which may arrest the loss of hair. Your doctor can tell you more. ...Read more

How to get rid of the fat over my face. I have lost weight from the body but it is not disappearing from my face.

Facial Fat: If you have achieved ideal body weight then the fat distribution in the face can be altered by liposuction. However, this should be performed judiciously in a conservative fashion.

Hi

I perform this procedure in Miami, Florida. One drawback is that fibrinogenic fillers from PPP do not last as long as fat transfer, they tend to last from 3-5 months. ...Read more
