Hair restoration in London, Harley St, is the latest and best option in hair Loss and hair thinning treatment.
Hair regeneration is based on Wound healing technology and is non-surgical.
Only a single session is required with sustainable results up to 5 years.
A second session can be done 18 months after the first one.
Hair regeneration was first developed to help to heal faster after a Hair transplant using the wound healing technology with noncellular protein matrix.
Indeed, 5 years data of hair regeneration have shown that not only hair donor area heals better and faster as well as hair grafts in transplanted areas, but also hairs grow thicker and hair thinning stopped.
Therefore Hair Regeneration became an alternative to Hair Transplant.
Acellular matrix was used in wound healing in heart surgery.
Wound healing technology using noncellular protein matrix acts as an inductive scaffold that supports constructive remodelling of other tissue types.
The mechanism includes the recruitment of progenitor cells, angiogenesis and generation of bioactive molecules that result from degradation of the matrix
Acellular matrix promotes the activation of adult stem cells related to wound healing to create an effect to improve a wound healing.
Simple criteria of Wound healing technology Hair restoration London, Harley St
-Hair regeneration patients do not need finasteride or Minoxidil for maintenance
-Stopping progressive hair Loss
-Reactivate dormant hair follicles = hair that is not growing
-Shedding thinning hair to replace with thicker hair = help thin hair to become thicker
Activate adult stem cells
Hair regeneration can provide same results as 2 hair transplants
If you double the diameter of a hair you quadruple its volume means more coverage and fullness
Key for hair regeneration is timing
As far as hair follicle is present we can make a difference
The more hair follicle we have the more we can stop the progression of hair Loss with hair regeneration based on Acellular matrix wound healing technology.
Anagen = 3 – 5 years = active growing phase
Catagen = 4 weeks
Telogen = 3 – 4 months = resting phase
Hair count at peak is about 100 000 hairs
Hair Loss first notice is about 50 000 hairs
Means 50% half of hair
Just looking density
70 hairs per cm2
Hair transplant surgery is
20 hairs per cm2
Male pattern hair Loss
Miniaturising hairs: DHT causes the hair to become thin and die
Female pattern hair Loss
Miniaturising hairs: Possible inflammation and/or DHT causes the hair to become thin and die
Hair thinning and hair Loss:
Hair growths, sheds, come back later and comes back thinner, then sheds and comes thinner
Hair gets thinner with each cycle and die.
-Hair grows and shed then don’t come back
Possible inflammation and/or DHT causes hair to become thin and die
Anagen phase gets shorter
Telogen phase gets longer
It’s not regrowing or it regrows thin
11 chromosomes is linked with hair Loss (genetic)
Hair thinning is a common pattern and it constitutes 95% of Hair Loss
95% of hair Loss is pattern hair Loss with hair thinning and thinning and then do not grow
Androgenic Alopecia = pattern hair Loss = 95% = progressive thinning of hair
Hair Loss is not due to any nutritional deficiency.
It is genetic in 95% of cases.
In pattern hair Loss, hair regeneration is the best option!
Female Hair Loss is commonly associated with hormonal changes (birth control pills/ pregnancy/ delivery)
A significant percentage of Hairs will go prematurely into the telogen phase.
Pharmacological of pharmaceutical approach to Loss is lifetime drug taking.
Whereas hair regeneration is one session or two with 5 years sustainable results
But we need to treat people at early stage
-Prolongs the growth cycles of thinning hairs and stimulates short-term hair growth
-Can delay normal hair shedding but do not stop hair from thinning
– Minoxidil Do not stop the progression of hair Loss!
5% Minoxidil is more than enough
No need for stronger doses
Scalp Irritation is possible.
(Propecia) (since 1999)
Active on 60% of male
Powerful inhibitor of the transformation of Testosterone into DHT.
DHT is the main cause of pattern hair Loss in male and female, which constitutes 95% of Hair Loss.
But most men refuse treatment because of sexual dysfunction side effects and Finasteride is counter-indicated for women.
Proven to be very active on women hair loss as well as on inflammatory acne.
Low-level laser therapy for hair Loss is not effective
It’s not of any value in Hair Loss
Most patients used low-level laser light devices with no results
Hair transplant, London
-Do not stop hair thinning and Hair Loss
-Collateral hair Loss during implantation = each implant damages existing hair that will not grow again
-Realistic expectations for hair density
-Limits of hair transplants regarding the donor area
We can have from 10% to 90% Loss
Even with the Mega session:
5000 grafts 11000 hairs
1000 hairs survive
90% Loss of grafts
Results after hair transplant is 12 months
Full results 18 months
Note that 5 months after hair transplant it is possible to have Shock Loss means hairs going temporarily to telogen phase means hair shaft sheds but the dermal papilla remains
In addition, if Existing hairs, there is also Collateral hair Loss from the trauma
It has always been accepted because if you were going to lose thin hair then better replacing them with transplant hair
Hair regeneration can be done after one month following hair transplant in order to heal better the donor area, help their thin existing hairs to become thinker and grafts heal better
Concentration of the wound healing factors that stimulates certain keys elements to the skin where it is injected
New blood vessels = VEGF
New blood vessels = ECGF
Cell growth = IGF
Cell growth = PD-EGF
Cell growth = PDGF
New collagen = BFGF
Turn stem cells into tissue = TGF
But the challenge is a monthly treatment
Then once every 3 months
Means short benefits
But PRP does not stop hair Loss!
PRP helps the grafts to heal better
PRP helps stimulating skin and tissue quality
May stimulate a short-term growth of existing hair.
Prolonged a growth cycle of a thinning hair comparable to Minoxidil
Vitamins and supplements
But hair loss is genetic and is not due to any deficiencies.
DHT blockers delivered to the skin do not give results because it doesn’t work that way!
