Current issues when faced with hair loss / thinning

When it comes to haircare finding the best products for hair growth can tricky, especially if you are tackling thinning or hair loss.

From shampoos, vitamins, gummies to simple teas, there are so many different pills and potions on the market today, touted to be the best products for hair growth – but do any of them work?

If you are experiencing hair thinning, or hair loss we understand how frustrating it can be. The first thing we recommend is to seek the help of a professional who can identify the root cause of your issue and address any underlying medical conditions that could be impacting it.

Who can it affect ?

It can affect both men and women, with one of the most common causes of hair loss being genetics, but it can also be attributed to age. Here are some of the things that could be affecting your hair growth:

Medications (including Chemotherapy)

Medical conditions

Family history (heredity)

Hormonal changes (menopause)

Natural aging

Excessive hair loss can unfortunately cause significant thinning, and even bald patches on the scalp which can be extremely debilitating and impact on self-confidence. If this is the case, you may want to consider specific treatments.

Things to consider 

Now, before looking at hair loss treatment it’s worth being mindful of your lifestyle, and daily habits that can damage your hair. Firstly, how do you style your hair?

If you often wear your hair in tight hairstyles or use excessive heat daily this could be causing breakage. Similarly, we recommend that you avoid using too many chemical colorants, or styling products on your hair, these can be very damaging.

When caring for your hair, try not to be too rigorous with it whilst it’s wet, incorporate a nourishing hair mask into your routine once per week, and look for specific products that contain nourishing ingredients, for example, almond oil, argan oil, and even Hyaluronic Acid.

Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (I-PRF) what is it?

If you are considering specific treatments to help with hair thinning and loss, then we recommend Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (I-PRF) which is the next generation of PRP.

I-PRF offers an innovative concept to overcome previous limitations within regenerative medicine.  I-PRF offers excellent cell viability and bio compatibility with superior tissue regeneration. This advanced form of platelet rich plasma does not use anticoagulants or other chemical-based additives, therefore offers a completely natural treatment to improve hair loss.

What does it involve ? 

IPRF can sound a little daunting, but we promise you it’s not. It is non-surgical, is not considered to be painful – a local topical anaesthesia is applied where applicable. It requires little or no downtime depending on your hair and activities . It involves extracting your blood (similar to a blood test), then separating the nutrient-rich platelets using a specially designed centrifuge – that spin rapidly to split the different components of the blood.

The low speed centrifugation concept (LSCC) guarantees a higher concentration of platelets, growth factors and leukocytes which become trapped within the fibrinogen mesh resulting in a cell rich network. These essential cells are then released slowly to lead to a natural regeneration process.

The platelets and key nutrients taken from your blood are then microneedled into your scalp and then injected to stimulate collagen production. In turn, this helps to prevent premature hair loss and hair thinning. Through careful follicle stimulation, IPRF treatments can improve the appearance of hair fullness, thickness, and volume.

IPRF treatment usually takes no longer than one hour to complete and requires minimal downtime. As the treatment uses nothing more than your own blood, there is also no risk of an allergic reaction, and it is known as of the safest procedures around.

For best results, you will need several treatments, spaced evenly which will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.

Who is suitable for Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (I-PRF) ?

All types of hair loss and thin hair for both men and women

Pre and Post hair transplant

Women of childbearing age and for patients who cannot benefit from other hair loss therapies

Studies prove the I-PRF Smart Cell System offers a significantly higher concentration of platelets when compared to PRP following centrifugation, which highlights the superiority of Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin and why this system is a true game changer
