Dr. John Kahen studied at UCLA and Ross University School of Medicine, where he learned the surgical and medical techniques he now uses to treat male pattern baldness. To suit individual needs, the team employs varied methodologies, such as follicular unit extraction, which transplants one unique snowflake of hair at a time, or hair-transplant surgery, which subtly relocates large swaths of hair. Medical hair-loss therapy impedes the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. Kahen and company treat both men and women, and their services can apply either to the scalp or to other body areas.
Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.
