Hair Loss and Hair Growth Stimulation Treatments
Hair loss is one of the most common and devastating conditions. There is a number of causes that influence hair loss, the main ones of which are:
- Androgenic alopecia – often genetic and can occur in both men and women
- Stress and Illness – Telogen Effluvian, 3-4 months post severe illness, and post pregnancy due to hormone changes
- Immune system conditions such as alopecia arreata
Protein is the building block of our hair – keratin to be exact. Hair follicles produce keratin nonstop and as a result, our hair grows – approximately 6 inches or 15cm a year. We lose approximately 100 hair strands a day naturally.
The hair life cycle has three stages:
- Anagen – 80-90% of hair, active hair growth lasting 2-8 years
- Catagen –2% of hair , transitional hair growth lasting 2-3 weeks
- Telogen – 8-10% of hair, resting phase that lasts about 2-3 months and then its shed and drops
As people age, their rate of hair growth slows down. Each follicle has its own life cycle that can be influenced by various factors and treatments respectively. Hair thinning can be caused by a variety of scalp health problems. If you’re noticing less hair overall or in specific patterns, it’s important to consult a doctor to rule out any underlying conditions.
Treatment options for hair thinning at home:
Eating a protein-rich diet and taking supplements like biotin, a specific group of vitamins, and collagen can help stimulate hair growth. Viviscal is a vitamin complex that has evidence for hair growth stimulation.
Topicals: Minoxidil (Rogaine)
Monoxidil applied to the scalp for 4-6 weeks can help with hair regrowth, according to available evidence. Rogaine works by affecting hair follicles: it prevents their shrinking process and stimulates new hair growth. The effects are more pronounced in early signs of hair loss and baldness.
Finesteride and / or spironalctone.
Both medications are not directly licensed for alopecia treatment, but it has side effects that block DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) effects on hair follicles, hence they reduced the male pattern of baldness and improves hair growth.
Treatment options for hair loss available at Aestha Clinic:
iPRF or PRP for Hair Loss (platelet-rich plasma)
PRP and iPRF, also known as plasmotherapy, are evidence-proven treatments to stimulate hair growth. A small blood sample is obtained and processed to extract the platelet-rich plasma, which contains growth factors, bioactive proteins, nutrients, vitamins, hormones, and electrolytes. This plasma is then injected directly into the scalp to stimulate hair follicles. There are sufficient studies and client testimonials proving its efficacy.
Our plasmotherapy treatments can help with hair density and reduce hair loss to normal levels, with results seen in as little as 90 days. Depending on your needs, we may combine PRPor iPRF with other hair loss treatments, including topical or oral minoxidil, oral finasteride, hair transplants, and Viviscal Professional supplementation. The treatment is suitable for both men and women who suffer from androgenetic alopecia or alopecia areata.
Get your own stem cells to work for you.
Regenera Activa is a hair growth stimulation treatment that uses your own stem cells, growth factors, and progenitor cells to trigger tissue regeneration. The hair regeneration process starts within 2-3 months and can be sustained for up to 12 months.
Progenitor cells, stem cell precursors and growth factors that have regenerative abilities are isolated from the sampled tissue and introduced to the target areas of the scalp, initiating the repair process – blood vessel formation in the skin and regeneration of hair follicles
Although Regenera Activa has only been around for a short while, it is already demonstrating positive results in androgenic alopecia and various forms of physical illness or stress-induced hair loss. Additionally, it is safe and effective to use for skin rejuvenation, scar treatments, and vitiligo.
Exosomes are amazing extracellular vesicles that help cells communicate! They are produced by mesenchymal stem cells and can trigger helpful behaviour changes in other cells. With new technology, we can now isolate and deliver these beneficial signallers directly. This is a huge breakthrough in the world of stem cell research!
The exosomes used in our hair loss therapy are isolated from donated human amniotic or fat mesenchymal stem cells and purified through a proprietary process. Since the exosomes are stem cell-derived, they provide unique benefits thanks to the vast array of growth factors. Exosomes have the ability to regenerate hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
How do exosomes works in hair growth stimulation?
As we age, our hair follicles begin to shrink and our production of signalling proteins decreases. This can lead to hair loss and thinning. Exosomes Hair Restoration uses stem cell exosomes to stimulate hair follicles and trigger new hair growth. Exosomes foster cell-to-cell communication and can transfer genetic information to cells within the damaged tissue using their more than 200 signalling proteins. These messages promote survival and regeneration within the tissue cells.
This cutting-edge hair restoration therapy involves injecting exosomes into the affected areas of the scalp to help stimulate hair regrowth. These treatments do not require any downtime, and the risk of adverse effects is minimal, making this an extremely convenient and safe procedure.
Hair stimulation is visible from a single session but may require up to 3 in the course of a year. Further sessions for maintenance are advised once a year. Our doctors are experts in regenerative aesthetic medicine and pioneering hair loss treatments. We take great pride in offering an array of comprehensive hair restoration treatments and upkeep.
