USE VACUUM TO AID HAIR GROWTH (Nov, 1936)

USE VACUUM TO AID HAIR GROWTH

CAN SCIENCE restore hair to the bald? Startling results in the affirmative are reported in 500 cases treated with a new machine, developed by Dr. Andre A. Cueto, of Cincinnati, Ohio. Fourteen to twenty half-hour treatments are said in many cases, to produce the appearance of “fuzz,” and from this point on the patient is declared to progress toward a normal growth of hair. Alternately applying air pressure and vacuum through a cap, the device, it is claimed, restores the functioning of the blood vessels that nourish the hair follicles. Abnormal hair growth upon the legs of hospital patients treated with a circulation-stimulating machine known as a “glass boot,” operating on a similar principle, suggested the new machine, perfected for commercial use.

    “It’s just a brain-sucker – nothing you’ll miss…”.

    It just flat-out amazes me the amount of time, trouble and general insanity that people will get up to just to deal with an idiotic cosmetic problem like going bald or greying.

    Speaking as one who is follically as well as partially color-challenged things like this just make me shake my head in wonder. WTF?!?! Why???

    It sounds like they are really hedging their bets in this story, when these articles usually bodly proclaim untested new ideas as revolutionary. Maybe the patient can get the machine to smoke his cigarette for him.
