Hair loss and regrowth treatments
What are hair loss and regrowth treatments?
Hair loss (alopecia) is a natural part of ageing, and can happen to both men and women. Losing hair on the scalp and body can also be due to genetics, hormonal and medical conditions, pregnancy, or diseases such as alopecia areata.
While humans naturally lose 50-100 strands of hair per day, we don’t usually notice it because new hair replaces them. When new hair does not grow, the symptoms of hair loss become obvious, such as bald patches and thinning hair.
Hair loss and regrowth treatments offer solutions to these problems by fostering growth and stimulating cells to produce new hair. They include prescription medicines, over-the-counter medications, laser therapy, micrografts, and supplements.
How do hair loss and regrowth treatments work?
Hair loss treatments and regrowth treatments are minimally invasive techniques that work in a number of different ways, depending on the type of procedure. Their main purpose is to encourage new hair growth, prevent further hair loss and/or cover bald patches on the scalp. Many of these treatments use stem cells to boost the body’s natural ability to grow hair for more permanent results.
At Zest Clinic, we offer the following treatments:
AnteAGE MD Growth Factor Solution
Only available through medical providers, the AnteAGE MD Growth Factor Solution
incorporates stem cell technology to stimulate hair follicles and foster natural hair growth. By activating the body’s natural ability to grow new hair, results are often long-lasting with this treatment.
Regenera Activa Stem cell micrografts
The Regenera Activa Micrograft treatment is a safe procedure that encourages the rejuvenation and regeneration of skin cells that produce hair. It works by harvesting the patient’s own cells through micrografting (taken from a discreet area that leaves no scarring), which is then reintroduced into the body or scalp in a specifically formulated serum enriched with stem cells.
Hair growth supplements
Hair growth supplements are usually a blend of vitamins that are effective in encouraging hair growth. These include Marine Peptides, vitamin A, B12, C and D, keratin, biotin, riboflavin, folate, and zinc. Taking supplements regularly may lead to improved hair health and naturally thicker hair. Certain patients may benefit from Minoxidil, Propecia or Finasteride treatments especially for male pattern hair loss.
Hair Restart Lasers
Fotona HairRestart Laser is a non-invasive ERYAG Laser treatment. Its unique patented feature of Fotona SMOOTH® is the ability to act in a non-ablative manner, producing precisely engineered mild thermal pulses. This ensures that the laser light is delivered to the tissue gently and efficiently, heating the scalp in a safe and controlled pulsed way. The overall effect is a gentle heating of the skin and the production of growth factors, without any significant ablation of the epidermis. This process also stimulates the production of collagen, which is essential for maintaining a healthy scalp environment. For best results the Laser stimulation is combined with Growth factors responsible for hair growth.
The Fotona Hair Laser is virtually painless, making it a comfortable and stress-free treatment option for those seeking hair restoration.
