Hair loss is possibly one of the biggest aesthetic concerns we face today. Besides the aesthetic perception it creates in terms of loss of youth, people also suffer enormously from the psychological and emotional effects of losing their hair. The good news is that there are cutting-edge aesthetic technologies to treat hair loss, from scientifically formulated hair products to revolutionary hair loss therapies.
Personalised Cell Therapy
One of these revolutionary therapies is Arthrex personalised cell therapy which is a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) procedure that harnesses the body’s own substances to treat various aesthetic concerns, including hair loss. By using the Arthrex system, PRP can be produced and applied within minutes. Blood is firstly drawn from the patient and then placed in a centrifuge which separates the PRP from the rest of the blood’s components. The PRP, which is a concentration of the body’s own growth factors and active substances, is then injected into the treatment area which stimulates collagen, hyaluronic acid, cell proliferation and regeneration of the area. In the case of treating hair loss, this personalised cell therapy helps stimulate the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells in the hair follicle bulge area, resulting in increased hair diameter and density.
Benefits of PRP
The benefits of using PRP are numerous. Because it uses your body’s own substances, it is a biologic approach that is completely safe and well tolerated by patients. More and more people prefer it as a natural alternative to conventional treatments as it does not use chemicals and because its results are gradual, therefore treatments are manageable. It is a quick and easy treatment, usually taking less than ten minutes with recommendations of ongoing treatments at monthly intervals for effective results.
Added treatment options
PRP treatment can be used on its own or in combination with other hair treatment products. A superior choice of product is Thymuskin®, an innovative, biologically active hair treatment system that is scientifically proven to strengthen hair roots and regenerate hair follicles. The active ingredient in Thymuskin® is the thymus peptide GKL-02 which is an active substance which inhibits various enzymes that play a role in hair loss. The product range is suitable for various types of hair and hair loss, thus allowing you to choose the correct mix of shampoo and serum for your hair. For example, you would not need the strongest serum for mild to moderate hair loss as the scalp only absorbs as much thymus peptide as it needs.
Thymuskin® is suitable for various types of hair loss whether it be genetic, diffuse hair loss, stress-related or from the use of chemotherapy treatment. In general, application involves washing your hair with Thymuskin® shampoo and then applying the serum to the scalp, massaging it into the scalp until it is dry to touch. Application may have to be adjusted depending on your type and extent of hair loss. Test results have shown that Thymuskin can reduce all types of hair loss by up to 96%, thus providing hope to all who suffer from this condition.
