Lexington International Retains Renowned Brazilian Expert in Hair Disorders as a Medical Director

Dr. Maria Muricy of the Clinica Muricy, will contribute to the strategic growth of the HairMax in Brazil by acting as spokesperson and providing clinical and scientific contributions

Dec. 9, 2009 - Boca Raton, FL - Boca Raton, FL - Lexington Intl, LLC, manufacturer of the HairMax LaserComb, the only laser phototherapy device FDA 510(k) cleared for marketing for hair growth, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Maria Muricy, dermatologist and a hair restoration surgeon as the Medical Director for the Brazilian market.  Dr. Muricy is a principal of the Muricy Clinic in Sao Paulo and Curituba, Brazil and she is recognized as one of the outstanding specialists in the country in the treatment of hair disorders.

Dr. Muricy has extensively studied the mechanism of action of laser phototherapy as provided by the HairMax LaserComb.  Using immunohistochemistry markets, Dr. Muricy has documented the effects of lasers on cellular apoptosis and cell proliferation.  She has also conducted studies comparing the efficacy of laser phototherapy in conjunction with minoxidil lotion in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (AGA).  One study was conducted with 52 men and women with AGA and compared the results of the uses of the HairMax LaserComb alone, of minoxidil alone, and concomitant use of both modalities.

Dr. Muricy commenting on the results of this study stated: "The HairMax LaserComb used in combination with minoxidil is significantly more effective than use of minoxidil alone."  Dr. Muricy also said: "We are so impressed with the results of the laser therapy, that we include the HairMax LaserComb as an integral part of our hair growth regimen and instruct each of our hair transplant patients to use the HairMax post therapy. I love the results".

Mr. Randy Veliky, COO of Lexington stated: "We are proud to have Dr. Muricy as our Medical Director in Brazil.  With over 20 years of experience in treating hair disorders and having performed thousands of transplant procedures, Dr. Muricy and her clinic will bring additional research to further elucidate and document the efficacy and mechanism of action of the HairMax Lasercomb."

Lexington will be working closely with Dr. Muricy to perform additional research on the mechanisms of action of the HairMax LaserComb and to research the efficacy of the device in combination with other proven treatments for AGA. This will help Lexington maintain its leadership position in the hair growth market segment in Brazil and around the world.

David Michaels, Managing Director of Lexington said, "I am pleased to have Dr. Muricy, a leading expert in hair, as our Brazilian Medical Director.  The Brazilian market is a key market in our international expansion strategy.  To have one of the leading Brazilian hair loss experts as our Medical Director in that country will strengthen our position and significantly expand our presence in Brazil."
