How does the treatment work:
The treatment uses Micro current and Red Photon Light therapy.
This is a treatment which works directly with the body to stimulate the hair follicles.
Micro current increases blood supply directly to the cells helping to strengthen and therefore increase the diameter of the hair shaft holding it firmly inside the follicle.
Red light repairs and rejuvenates the skin.
How much does the treatment cost and where will it be carried out?
Consultation is FREE, single treatment cost is £75 and a course of 10 treatments (recommended for full benefit) is £500.
As opposed to the use of chemical products like Regain which contains Minoxidil which dilates the tiny blood vessels in the scalp, which increases the blood circulation to the hair follicles; which is £40-£50 per month for ever. By having hair rejuvenation treatment the client is saving between £80 – £200 in the first year and £480-£600 every year thereafter.
The consultation and treatment is carried out in the client’s home or salon at a time convenient to them. The treatment will last just 30 minutes.
About the hair and hair loss:
The hair growth cycle has three phases. Once you understand the natural process occurring in your follicles during these three phases you can start taking steps to help your hair. For every hair on your head, the cycle begins with the growth phase, which lasts from 3 to 5 years.
Growth (Anagen) phase
The hair grows at 1cm a month and usually about 85% of your hair is in this stage.
Transitional (or catagen) phase
Next, the hair enters a transitional phase which lasts around two weeks. This is when the cells at the base of the hair stop growing, just as they would in a healthy follicle.
Resting (or telogen) phase
After the transitional phase, the hair follicles enter a 3 month resting phase. At the end of the resting phase the hair is shed and a new hair replaces it and the growing cycle starts again.
What is the cause?
This will vary for men and women.
First of all let’s look at everyday hair loss. On average, the adult head has 100,000 individual strands of hair and most people will shed between 40 and 120 of these per day as part of a healthy re-growth cycle (but, not all at once, so you don’t notice them).Hair loss is due to the malfunction of the hair follicles from changes in hormonal activity. In some cases, baldness is due to medication, stress, poor nutrition, surgery and even hair care techniques.
During pregnancy, the increased levels of oestrogen in your body freezes hair in the growing (or “resting”) phase of the cycle. Hair that would normally fall out stays put resulting in thicker hair. You may have been thrilled with your thick and lustrous mane of hair except for some dryness, then once baby is born that changes.
Postpartum hair loss
Hair loss after pregnancy is the sudden shedding (sometimes in clumps) that many new mothers experience between three and six months after they give birth.
Oestrogen levels decline & all that hair that was resting starts to fall out. This usually starts the third or fourth postpartum and ends by six months, says Joanne Stone, MD, an ob-gyn at Mount Sinai Medical Centre in New York City and co-author of Pregnancy for Dummies (John Wiley & Sons). But some women say it can last for a year. This temporary hair loss doesn’t mean you’re deficient in nutrition or vitamins, says Dr. Stone. It’s simply hormonal.
Sometimes hair falls out all over your head. Or clumps may come out when you brush it, or in the shower. However, often women just lose a lot around their hairline, so that their hair looks very fine in the front, or as if they’re going bald, says Stephanie Scuoppo, a hairstylist at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and Spa in New York City.
Cicatricial (scarring, inflamatory, permanent) alopecia
Refers to a group of rare disorders that destroy the hair follicle and replace it with scar tissue, thereby causing permanent hair loss. It occurs worldwide in otherwise healthy men and women of all ages.
If your plughole is filling up with more hair than usual, then unless you are going through a very stressful period in your life, the chances are you are looking at early signs of male baldness. You’ve probably looked at other members of your family and noticed your hair is following a similar pattern to theirs. But it’s not necessarily the case you will follow the same pattern – your hair loss may prove to be less, the same or more. You could be losing hair from the crown and you are probably noticing signs of a receding hairline – possibly both. Is your brush or comb raking out more hair than usual? And are you also noticing thinning on top or perhaps a more pronounced hairline at the sides? Although it’s possible that this loss could be caused by a medical disorder, prescribed medication, poor nutrition, bad hair care techniques or severe stress, in 95% of cases the cause is hereditary – and is known as male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia.
In the case of hereditary hair loss, the genes and hormones in your body have a shrinking effect on your hair follicles, making them ineffective at growing new hairs. Over time, the progressive shrinking of certain scalp follicles leads to a shortening of the hair’s growing cycle. Hair becomes thinner and shorter, until there is no growth at all.
The most common reason for hair loss in women is female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA). It’s a condition that causes changes to your hair follicles due to genetics, hormones, and age. There are many potential causes of hair loss in women , but heredity is usually the main culprit.
If you are experiencing this female pattern hair loss, you may still notice your hair growing. However, your follicles will continue to shrink, producing finer, shorter, and harder-to-see hair with each cycle until they are no longer able to make new hair.
If you have hereditary hair loss, it will cause your hair follicles to shrink over time. So while your hair may still be growing, the quality of that hair will change — getting smaller, finer, and less visible — until new hair is no longer produced. If you experience female pattern hair loss, changes in your follicles interrupt this cycle, leading to thinning hair and hair loss.
