CHICAGO, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Viviscal®, the world's leading brand of dietary supplements announces its participation in the 7th annual World Hair Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland. Taking place May 4-6, 2013, the triennial congress gathers hair research societies from across the world as the foremost conference for those with an interest in hair, including specialist physicians, dermatologists, surgeons and scientists from academia and industry.
Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements are scientifically proven to help nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth* from within. The company's participation in the World Hair Congress marks the first-ever clinical supplement to be presented during the summit. Viviscal showcased the renowned Hair Growth Program and presented their recent clinical study supporting the product efficacy, with distinguished, board certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Glynis Ablon, MD, FAAD. Dr. Ablon shared results from Dr. Thomas J. Stephens' recent study, "Viviscal Double Blind Placebo Controlled Trial on Women 2012."
The data from Dr. Stephen's study verifies reduction of hair shedding and increase in thickness and diameter of vellus hair. Through this double-blind, placebo controlled study, Viviscal was able to conclude that with regular use of the supplements, the results were an 18.1% reduction in hair shedding after 6 months, and a 7.4% increase in vellus hair thickness after 6 months.
The Viviscal Hair Growth Program is supported by a combination of over 20 years of research and involvement in the areas of biochemistry and nanotechnology, on-going clinical trials, and product development. The launch of the Viviscal Hair Growth Program provides both men and women with a healthy solution to free themselves from the stress and embarrassment of thinning hair and hair loss.
"We are excited to be involved in this year's World Hair Congress and showcase the remarkable results we've seen with the Viviscal Hair Growth Program," commented Mark Holland, North American CEO of Viviscal. "We are eager to share not only our products, but our clinical results to the leading specialists in the hair care industry."
