Is healthy, strong and shiny hair a gift from nature or the result of proper care? Doctors are unanimous: thoughtful care for hair can help to get luxurious curls, regardless of genetics. What hair treatments are needed and what are the ways to make it thicker and more beautiful?
Every day, the hair is subjected to dozens of different manipulations: blow-drying, straightening and curling, coloring, tight hairstyles, and more. All this affects their health, and stress, ecology and poor quality tap water only exacerbate this situation. Often these and other factors can lead to hair loss, and then modern hair treatments methods are critical.
Basic hair care (cleansing and conditioning) is still important, however it is only suitable for healthy hair. Shampoos and conditioners are unlikely to help significantly if hair falls out or grows very slowly. With such problems, more professional hair treatments are required. Care is necessary that affects the follicles, because the health, density and speed of hair growth depend on their activity. So what does modern cosmetology medicine offer?
Growth factor is protein molecules that regulate cell growth. Until the age of 25, the human body has enough own growth factors, but after that it begins to lose its ability to produce them. These factors are actively used for intensive care in various cosmetic products.
Growth factors can turn time back. They quickly regenerate the skin, activate hair growth, restore damaged blood vessels and fight baldness. Most often, growth factors are used in complex hair treatments.
Generally speaking, the main idea of using growth factors in hair care is to ensure that active substances bond with receptors on the surface of cells and trigger natural processes of intracellular reactions and intercellular interactions. This, in turn, leads to natural restoration and growth of new hair without any disruption of natural hormonal metabolism.
Various types of growth factors are used to combat hair loss and baldness. As a rule, they:
- Activate stem cells of hair follicles, stimulate their growth and division, and increase the degree of cell survival in adverse conditions. They also prolong the anagen phase, increase the density of hair growth, increase the strength of the hair, and improve the blood supply and nutrition of the hair follicles.
- Ensure the reproduction of stem cells, the growth of follicles, start and prolong the anagen phase, shorten the telogen phase. They protect cells from death; enhance the growth and maturation of the capillary network.
- Suppress the formation and release of the signaling protein DKK1 (“hair follicle killer”), stopping the symptoms of androgenetic alopecia.
Mesotherapy is another effective method for intensive hair treatments. It is used where external products and means do not give the expected result. This is an injection technique for saturating the skin with useful substances. Vitamins and nutrients are directed into the deeper layers of the skin by means of micro injections with the finest needle.
The essence of the procedure is to transfer small doses of a cocktail of nutrients into the deep layers of the scalp. It purposefully acts on the hair papilla, follicle, and biologically active points of the skin. The use of mesotherapy in hair treatments can stop hair loss as well as stimulate new hair growth.
The effectiveness of mesotherapy is very high, especially as a treatment for androgenic and alopecia areata. However, the extreme degree of baldness (total) is no longer appropriate to such treatment. But mesotherapy is used if hair transplant is planned. This technique allows preliminary preparation, which contributes to better engraftment of implants without complications and side effects.
The duration of the preservation of the result is up to 10 months and occurs due to the deposition effect (preservation of substances under the skin).
Mesotherapy helps to deal with a wide range of problems:
- Early gray hair,
- Intense hair loss
- Postpartum hair damage,
- Seborrhea and so on.
Mesotherapy also helps the active growth of hair, their elasticity and shine. This is an extremely effective hair treatments procedure.
