Phoenix, AZ, June 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- There are very few things in life that can predict reliably, but now you’ll be able to tell if hair follicles will suffer the same fate as your father’s. That’s because National Hair Centers is now offering genetic testing to determine a man’s likelihood of developing male pattern baldness – and they’re the first hair restoration company in Phoenix to do so.
The testing that NHC offers uses the same results supported by several peer-reviewed scientific studies associating variations in the X -chromosome to pattern baldness. The test enables users to learn about their genetic predisposition to balding.
People with these variations in their X-chromosome are likely (95.1% to 98.1%) to develop pattern baldness before the age of 40.
“The information provided by this testing helps people make informed decisions about what approach they should take toward combating hair loss,” says Lisa Zimmerman, the President of National Hair Centers. “It will also help us figure out who won’t be customers of ours in the future,” she chuckles.
With only a swabbing of the inside of the cheek necessary, the test couldn’t be more affordable or convenient. And it could give you peace of mind knowing you’ll have a full head of hair - or the knowledge necessary to do something about your future hair loss now.
Members of the media interested in trying National Hair Centers’ new genetic testing should contact Melissa Rein or Jim Sharpe with Rose & Allyn Public Relations.
