Hair has always been an important part of a person’s self-image. Hair loss involves a significant portion of the population. There are several different factors that affect hair growth and ultimately result in hair loss. The hair follicle alternates between a growing phase and a resting phase. The growing phase in individuals without hair loss can persist for up to 5 years. At the end of the growing phase, the base of the hair strand forms a “club” which anchors it to the skin. There is a short traditional phase between the hair’s growing and resting phases, during which the “club hair” moves closer to the skin’s surface. The duration of the traditional phase is usually 2 to 3 weeks. While in the resting phase, the hair that has stopped growing is retained within the scalp for approximately 3 months before it exits the hair follicle. Next, the hair follicle switches from the resting phase back to a new growing phase, and the new hair that begins to grow pushes out the club hair.
The most important factor that affects hair growth and result in hair loss is a genetic one. A genetic predisposition causes individual hair follicles to be more susceptible to normal concentrations of male sex hormones (androgens). This is essential for the development and progression of hair loss. The androgen, dihydrotestosterone, causes the progressive miniaturization of hair follicles, eventually making the hairs they produce thinner and shorter.
Once dihydrotestosterone is formed, it binds to its receptor on the surface of cells and is carried to the cell nucleus. The combination of dihydrotestosterone bound to its receptor is called an “activated complex” and, once inside the nucleus, it has detrimental effects on hair production. Research has shown that this activated complex increases the resting phase and shortens the growing phase of the hair growth cycle. In other words, this hormone progressively shortens the cycle in which hair activity grows, making the hair produced by each shortened growth cycle progressively less pigmented and finer. The continued effects of dihydrotestosterone result in the progressive miniaturization of hair follicles, ultimately resulting in hair loss.
Clearly, the desire to cure hair loss had existed for a very long time. Hair loss is not an inevitable outcome. You can stop your hair loss and get new hair growth. To cope with hair loss problem, consult a doctor for diagnosis. There are a number of different agents with different mechanisms of action to obtain maximal hair loss prevention and regrowth.
The Medical Hair Regrowth Treatment starts with a thorough consultation followed by an in-depth questionnaire to be completed by you. Diagnostic evaluation is conducted by doctor. The treatment uses the unique medical agents that helps drive nutrients and the hair-rejuvenating formula into the underlying scalp, reconstructs and revitalizes skin cells, fibre tissues and hair follicles and directly stimulates the Anagenic Growth Phase of the hair cycle with growth factors.
- Accelerates metabolism of hair follicles.
- Stimulates rejuvenation of hair.
- Extends Anagenic Growth Phase period of hair cycle.
