We have a variety of treatments available in-clinic and at home to target the variety of conditions that can have an adverse effect on the hair and scalp for both men and women.
There are different types of hair loss. It can take the form of “thinning” or involve a total loss of hair. It can be gradual or sudden; it can affect the old and the young. Hair loss can be genetic, or as a result of extreme stress, a medical condition or treatment. Hair loss is a well-known side effect of chemotherapy. It’s also common for women to lose more hair than usual up to 3 months after they’ve given birth.
Since the hormones are raging in puberty, it makes some men in their teens and early twenties more at risk of losing their hair as testosterone is produced in a higher quantity during puberty than any other time of a man’s life. Even if there is no male-pattern baldness gene, this boost in hormones can still cause shrinkage of the hair follicles. Men are more prone to a condition known as androgenic alopecia. This is a genetically inherited condition, often referred to as male-pattern baldness, and it starts with hair loss starting at the temples and receding back in to the characteristic “M” shape. Hair is also lost at the crown in most cases too. The condition increases activity of the androgen receptors in the hair follicles. These receptors respond to androgens like dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a by-product of testosterone that shrinks hair follicles and makes it hard for them to live. Because men are constantly producing testosterone throughout their lives, they are also constantly making DHT, and so it makes them more likely to lose their hair than women, who do not have a similar genetic disposition to hair loss.
IPRF is Injectable Rich Fibrin, a small tube of blood is taken from the arm which is then centrifuged to separate the cells, allowing the plasma to be extracted and used. With IPRF treatments your own blood is used, so there isn’t any risk of side effects or adverse reactions. The growth factors and platelets become trapped within the 3-dimensional fibrin mesh and released slowly to trigger cellular renewal, skin remodelling and stem cell stimulation. IPRF can be used by Micro-needling or injections – we use both methods so you get the most benefits from the treatment.
The COSMED Hair-Tox products help improve the health of your scalp and hair. Our micro-infusion delivery is designed to ensure that the correct, specific and focused Growth Factors are delivered to aid in the management of the hair loss and healthy hair via stimulation of new skin cell proliferation and increase skin re-epithelialisation, reinforcing dermal structure, essential to maintain a healthy environment necessary for the scalp.
The advanced Hair System is designed to be used in conjunction with in-clinic treatments for hair restoration. This treatment targets the root of hair loss which is primarily a defect of dermal papilla cell activity. Mesenchymal stem cell-derived signalling and growth factors are able to influence hair growth.
