Snippet from the article:
They promised her a full head of hair, but it was a bald-faced lie, a $15 million lawsuit says. A real estate exec says she shelled out over $250,000 to a clinic that promised to â€œrestore her hair and confidenceâ€ â€” and wound up leaving her permanently bald.
Deborah Betesh’s lawyer, Bruce Baron, said what happened to his client at the Microdot Technique was â€œan egregious case of fraud, misrepresentation and deceptive business practices.â€ â€œThe defendants preyed on someone who was hoping to remedy something that was truly a burden and they’ve now destroyed her life,â€ he said.
Betesh, 56, first went to the E. 58th St. clinic in 2012 because she was worried about her thinning hair. She says techs at the clinic told her they could give her â€œthe hair of her dreams.â€ They also told her it was â€œa safe and effective alternative to having hair transplant surgery,â€ and that just two to four hours after the procedure, â€œher short hair would become long, and that her thinning hair would become full again,â€ the Manhattan Supreme Court suit says.
Wow, that’s quite a bit of money and seemingly little research done. She’s claiming there was artificial hair surgically implanted, while the defendants are adamant about performing no such procedure. Without knowing more about this case specifically, the Microdot process sounds like it is just another type of hair weave to me.
