“I am still completely satisfied with the treatments from your trichologist Gary Heron. My hair has grown back from being bald at the sides and on the front hair line. I am delighted with the results. Excellent”.
Vitastim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:This stimulant is recommended to help stabilise hair loss and strengthen existing hair. It is a natural hop-based solution that works as a vasodilator to increase blood circulation in the scalp and so enable healthy hair growth. It also contains a multi-vitamin complex to help catalyse the process of conversion of amino acids into keratin hair cells and accelerate growth and diameter of the hair from the dermal papilla.
Biostim 15%: This stimulant contains a very effective natural 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of 5-alpha reductase in the scalp and thereby reduces the formation of DHT, stabilising hair loss and encouraging a healthy growth cycle.
This 31 year old women started treatment with us in March this year. She is diagnosed as suffering with Androgenetic Alopecia or Female Pattern Hair Baldness.
Androgenetic alopecia has a characteristic pattern of hair loss; it begins with a slight recession at the front hairline and is followed by thinning on the crown of the head. This hair loss results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone. The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be oversensitive to the DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to the eventual hair loss.
FROM MARCH TO OCTOBER 2008
Marie is using the prescribed treatments listed below:
Minoxidil 5%+ Medroxy Progesterone Hair Growth Stimulant: Minoxidil is a vasodilator and dilates the blood capillaries responsible for blood supply to the hair follicles, thus allowing more blood to reach the hair follicles and encourage hair growth. Medroxy Progesterone is a synthetic hormone designed to block the conversion of testosterone to DHT or Dihydro-Testosterone.
Biostim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:
This stimulant contains a multi-vitamin complex to stimulate the hair follicles and increase hair cell production and proliferation. It is also designed to prolong the hair growth cycle, promoting increased hair growth and density.
