Two thirds of UK men experience hair loss – that’s around 7.5 million men –
80% of women will experience noticeable hair thinning by the age of 60.
Causes of hair loss & hair thinning;
Stress, hormone imbalances, underactive thyroid, pregnancy, menopause, auto-immune illness, medications, vitamin deficiencies and ageing contribute to thinning hair loss
Thinning hair loss has a devastating effect on your self confidence.
All too often we’ve seen friends try to cover up their thinning hair with hats, odd looking spray on hair fibers or unusual “Bobby Charlton” and Donald Trump comb over hair styles – well mainly the men!
Hair grows in cycles of growth and rest. When too many hairs go into a dormant state you can begin to notice thinning. The blood supply to the base of the hair follicle can recede and the hair will fall out – resulting in more visible hair loss.
I was excited to learn about a new treatment to stimulate hair growth using a natural approach.
Combining the benefits of medical skin needling (dermaroller or dermastamping) human identical skin growth factor serums and Dermalux LED red light phototherapy has been shown to be an effective way to “awaken” the hair follicles.
The body produces growth factors as part of its natural repair mechanism, especially after an injury to heal a wound for example. By creating a controlled injury to the skin / scalp with the fine, short needles of a dermastamp, we can trigger this healing response. The body releases it’s own growth factors. By adding more human identical growth factors in a serum we can accelerate that response. Stem cells lining the hair follicles are crucial for hair production. The patented growth factors in AQ Solutions Advanced Hair Complex provide support to these stem cells so hair can thrive and create the best environment for hair re-growth. Introducing the serum into the skin by medical micro needling (dermastamping) triggers the repair response & we deliver the serum to the base of the hair follicles 0.5-0.8mm
Scalp condition is improved, the skin is softened, existing hair quality improve, hair loss reduced & hair re growth stimulated – this treatment will not re grow hair on a bald head – but it will soften a hardened scalp and reduce scars caused by hair transplant surgery
- AQ Solutions Advanced Hair Complex serum is applied to scalp (or eyebrow area)
- Then we carefully dermastamp the skin to deliver the serum
- The treated area is exposed cool to red and near infrared light – Dermalux LED Phototherapy – to stimulate repair and reduce inflammation. The treatment is not painful and there is no downtime. Treatments are repeated at weekly intervals for five weeks. Further courses of treatment may be required at approximately two month intervals
