    TLDR BTA safely and effectively treats hair loss, and works better with FNS.
    The study evaluated the effectiveness and safety of botulinum toxin type A (BTA) in treating androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The results showed that BTA is a safe and effective therapy for AGA, and BTA combined with follicular nutrient solution (FNS) presents excellent results. The study concluded that BTA is a safe and effective therapeutic strategy for the treatment of AGA without adverse effects, and BTA combined with FNS exhibited a superior therapeutic effect than BTA alone. However, the study had several limitations, including a small sample size of only 63 patients, and further clinical studies on a large sample size are needed to validate these findings.
