William Gaunitz and Evolution Hair Centers of Tempe was recently been featured in the article below. Evolution Hair Centers has consistently been getting new attention for the effectiveness of the Evolution Hair Centers hair loss treatment for women.

A Silent Issue: Women and Hair Loss
By Katie Snyder

Fact: Hair loss is no longer just a men’s issue, it affects women too.

And if you’ve ever glanced down at your hairbrush and found a sizable clump of freshly-pulled hair, or looked at your hair and realized it appeared way thinner than it used to be, you know how frightening it can be.

“Today, more than 21 million women suffer from hair loss across the United States,” said William Gaunitz WTS, founder of Evolution Hair Centers. “While most common in older women, it can affect even women who are in their 20’s and 30’s.”

Every year, the taboo topic leaves women of all ages suffering in silence as they search for reasons why and solutions to fix their often embarrassing condition.
The good news? There are answers.

Is my hair loss normal?

Not all hair loss is bad hair loss. As women age, their hair will naturally fall out and replace itself with a fresh hair in the follicle. But there are other factors that may determine if the hair loss is more permanent—like genetics.

“If you have hair loss and the androgenetic alopecia gene, which is the hereditary female pattern hair loss gene, and it runs in either side of the family tree, you are more likely to have female pattern thinning and hair loss,” said Gaunitz.

This isn’t always the case. There may also be other factors including health conditions, family history and lifestyle factors that lead to the two other most common hair loss conditions among women: telogen effluvium, the shedding of hair brought on by stressful events or illness, and alopecia areata, a recurrent disease that results in a typical pattern of diffuse hair thinning over the middle scalp.

According to William Gaunitz, other factors might include:

Hormonal Imbalance

This can be caused by unbalanced levels of androgens, namely dihydrotestosterone(DHT) and estrogen. Other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid problems and genetic hormonal responses to autoimmune conditions can also cause thinning of the hair.

Stress

Remember that saying “you’re going to make my hair fall out?” Well it’s true. When women experience stress, the adrenal glands become overworked it increases the levels of cortisol in the body. In return, a woman can produce an excess of hormones that can sometimes cause the hair to fall out.

Pregnancy

After a pregnancy a woman’s hormones can be in disarray. It is perfectly common for post-partum mothers to experience thinning of the hair and even bald patches. In most cases, once the hormone levels have balanced back out, the hair should grow back.

Birth Control

Perhaps the most common is birth control. When women start and stop birth control it changes the levels or hormones in their body which can temporarily cause hair loss.

Prevention and Treatment Options

“While you cannot fight your genes, you can fight the effects of aging and hormonal imbalance,” said Gaunitz. “While losing hair can be embarrassing, chances are it’s something that’s easily treatable.”

Being able to analyze full medical history, as well as details relating to lifestyle, family, diet and any medication you may be taking is essential to getting the right diagnosis and treatment.

Other helpful hair loss prevention tips:

•    Use organic and anti-inflammatory shampoos and other products that are cleansing to the scalp to help flush out hormonal build up inside the hair follicles.
•    Maintain a healthy diet full of fiber and vitamin rich foods.
•    Try out over the counter products such as Minoxidil (Rogaine).
•    Make sure to use the right nutritional supplements.

“Hormones can be easily manipulated in women with nutritional supplements,” said Gaunitz. “The combination of the right nutritional supplements, healthy diet and organic shampoo and conditioner will usually stop a female’s hair loss.”

For more extreme cases, low level laser therapy is also available for women who want to increase the quantity and quality of hair in the hair shaft that is already being produced.

Spencer Forrest X5 Laser Reviewed by William Gaunitz

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Oct 06, 2010 @ 03:38 PM

I have reviewed numerous handheld lasers on the market.  After seeing thousands of clients come through the Evolution, I did not see any handheld unit besides the Erchonia THL-1 Laser that actually worked well enough to carry in our clinics.
Most commercially available handheld lasers only use 5 - 9 unfocused diffuse light diodes. This simply means that there would not be enough energy available to create a notable difference in most hair loss situations. Different hair types require different levels of energy to see results. Dark to black hair usually can only tolerate 30 diodes of 635nm (3.5-5mW) energy at 2 x per week before overstimulation. Light to blond hair can tolerate almost double that at 61 diodes of the same energy 2 x per week.
Overstimulation can occur in anyone who has received too much laser treatment for their particular situation. Overstimulation can cause a stalling of hair growth (slow growth), scalp pain, and in many cases rapid shedding of hair in the treated area. It is very important to use the correct dosage of energy for every individual in the correct intervals.
With that being said, it is also very important to get enough laser energy to ensure proper hair growth. For a diffuse light diode handheld device to really create a positive impact on the average hair loss case, the laser device would need to at least contain 15 diffuse light diodes. You must also note that not all diodes are created equal as well. You must have a quality built device to maintain adequate and sustained power supply to each diode to ensure a quality dose of energy.
There is only one device that I have found currently available that fits these criteria. This device is the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser. The Spencer Forrest has been well thought out, is reliable, and has shown actual clinical evidence in the Evolution Clinics of producing enough energy to improve hair growth in most hair loss cases. The X5 is also currently going through FDA clinical trials to receive a 510K market clearance for the promotion of new hair growth.
It is of my opinion that the X5 Laser is by far the greatest value against competitive units at a price point of $298.90. Sunetics makes a 15 diode paddle brush laser selling at $795.00 that did perform well in an Evolution Clinical review, but had other flaws. The Sunetics unit consistently lost its battery cover during regular use and the rechargeable battery failed in many instances. Dealing with Sunetics customer service department was an issue as well. It took over 6 weeks to have one of their units repaired.
The Spencer Forrest laser at treatment protocol of 15 minutes 3 times weekly produced good results for dark hair. For light hair and blonds 20 minutes 3 times weekly was the most effective protocol. Evolution Hair Centers now carries the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser with or without a complete Evolution Hair Centers treatment program. If you are interesting purchasing an X5 Laser, browse the online store here to purchase the device at the greatest value on the web. FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY....EACH X5 laser comes with a FREE HAIRSTEM KIT (a $85 value)!

Evolution Hair Centers comes to the Biltmore!

Posted by William Gaunitz on Tue, Mar 23, 2010 @ 11:42 PM

Evolution Hair Centers Comes to the Biltmore/Arcadia!

At the age of 17 the future lays before us like a brand new book waiting to be written. Milestones recently passed - turning 16, earning a drivers license, attending prom, playing sports at the junior varsity and varsity levels, applying for college admission and preparing for high school graduation. We believe that life can only get better. For many young adults, this is a time for embarking on a journey of self-discovery or even a fresh start. One young man made a discovery that would send him on a journey to his future life's work.

Will Gaunitz started to lose his hair at 17. The hair was coming out fast and he panicked. At first he tried Rogaine while in military school. Gaunitz believed that by following the directions, he could save the hair he had. He used the product faithfully for six months and it appeared the treatment was working. Another six months passed and no additional hair loss, but no new hair growth. He tapered off Rogaine and his hair remained the same for two years. Unfortunately, by the age of 21, the hair loss started again and this time it was back with a vengeance. The stress of a new job with the demands of increased hours did not help matters. Gaunitz again tried Rogaine, but after six months he lost even more hair. He visited a dermatologist who prescribed Propecia. The tag team approach of using Rogaine and Propecia produced yet more hair loss. At 22 Gaunitz was sincerely worried. He tried many of the prescription, over the counter, herbal and topical remedies. Nothing worked. He considered surgery, as in hair transplants. Sadly, at the age of 22 the doctor said he was a poor candidate due to his youth. Instead of freaking out and giving up, Gaunitz began researching low-level laser therapy on the Internet. He visited a clinic in Arizona for this new treatment. Finally, after a month, progress. At two months the hair loss had stopped. By three months new hair began to emerge. Six months later he had regrown almost 60% of the hair previously lost.

That's when Gaunitz experienced the quintessential light bulb moment. After researching hair loss for two years, he knew too much to return to the old remedies. He believed that with the right combination of products in conjunction with the laser, better results could be produced. He quit his job and began to create a new laser clinic concept. Gaunitz went to study the latest techniques in Europe and Australia.
Gaunitz pioneered a five-step program that ensures results. It is a whole body approach with synergistic elements that work together from the inside out. The program starts with the Evolution Laser. The Elite Regeneration Laser (or ER610) is a cold laser. Designed for scalp stimulation and healing, it penetrates the skin without heat or damage. Benefits include improved circulation, increased cell metabolism, anti-inflammatory effects and fast wound healing. The FDA has approved this low-level laser treatment.

Step two involves Hairstem PM and Pmb, topical treatments to be used in conjunction with the special shampoo. As part of the GHS or Gaunitz Hair Science product line, the GHS 360 products are to be used at home. The PM formula contains five percent minoxidil and vitamin A as well as aloe, licorice extract, caffeinated green tea extract, B5, B6, glycerin and alcohol. The Pmb formula contains five percent minoxidil, azelaic acid, aloe gel, licorice extract, B5, B6, caffeinated green tea extract, tea tree oil, glycerin and alcohol. These proprietary blends are holistic, all natural, chemical free products. GHS products are the result of clinical research.

Step three - Internal detox starts with a three-step supplement program. GHS DHT Command assists in keeping the scalp free of toxins that interfere with hair growth. This is the more natural alternative to Propecia. GHS Essential Fatty Acids EFA sounds complicated, but really are not. Essential fatty acids are a collective association of fatty acids that are required by the human body for health. These happen to be omega 6 and omega 9. This product means to reduce tissue inflammation and increase cellular regeneration. GHS Ana Growth vitamin balances the body and keeps the hair healthy and shiny. It is a rotation of over-the-counter drugs and pharmaceuticals. These elements work synergistically to promote rapid cell regeneration, resistance to toxins, improve digestion, and protect hair follicles from future damage.

Step four - the anti-microbial hair system is an integral part of hair regrowth. GHS Hairstem Anti-Bacterial Treatment shampoo helps play a role in inhibiting inflammation, infection and conditions that impede the hair restoration process.

Step five - internal detoxification, a vital stage in the process of hair regrowth. GHS Detox Tea is a natural cleansing tea that flushes out toxins and promotes better well-being. Active ingredients include dandelion root, licorice, burdock root, cinnamon and citrus peel. Sonne #7 Bentonite Intestinal Detox is a product designed to carry out a seven-day cleanse or fast. Both help cleanse the liver and kidneys.

Evolution Hair Centers has 5 locations. As of April 1, it becomes the only nationally franchised hair growth center. Visit the clinic at 1490 South Price Road, Suite 211 in Chandler or 7450 East Pinnacle Peak Road, Suite 258 in North Scottsdale. Facilities are also available in Woodland Hills, California and Southampton, New York. Evolution Hair Centers opens their newest office on March 1.
