Hair Restoration

Hair Restoration

Hair loss is a common condition that people might experience at least once in their lifetime and if thinning hair becomes quite noticeable it can affect a person’s self-esteem and well-being. Whilst health conditions that lead to hair growth disorders are mainly a target for medical research, cosmetic science studies hair follicle biology and hair growth control mechanisms in order to develop methods for non-clinical (vs clinical e.g., hair follicle transplant) interventions aimed at hair restoration. One of the widely used treatments for stimulation of hair regrowth involves multiple injections of various bioactive ingredients into the scalp. These types of treatments may stimulate regrowth of new hair when done over the course of multiple and regular procedures, however, the painful injections and the cost of the treatments often prohibit the clients from completing the course and obtaining the desirable effect. 

The newer techniques that have now been developed avoid using injections, which help to overcome the abovementioned drawbacks. In particular, the Needle -Free EPM™ (Electroporation Microchip) technology, which combines Electroporation and Microchip Transdermal technology for a pain free, efficient, and safe delivery of bioactive ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin. The Microchip transdermal technology helps to penetrate the skin’s epidermal basal layer into 0.1-0.15mm depth and in combination with Electroporation allows the introduction of active ingredients and nutrients into the mesoderm of the skin (deeper layers of the skin). 

Electroporation is a non-invasive alternative to the traditional needle and injection-based techniques. Special Electroporation devices help to apply an electrical field to the skin via short, low intensity electrical pulses to create temporary lipid bilateral aqueous channels in the outer layer of the skin, called the stratum corneum, to increase its permeability and enable the applied active ingredients to penetrate the skin painlessly. This allows efficient and safe delivery of the desired treatment ingredients into the deeper basal and dermal layers of the skin. Electroporation was developed by scientists from Harvard University and MIT for a needle-free transdermal drug delivery and it has been widely used in medicine and medical science for a few decades. Recently it has been successfully implemented in Medical Aesthetics and advanced skin care fields (for more details on Electroporation please refer to the Bio-revitalization Section).

At our practice we use the Needle-free EPM™ device to apply the hair restoration treatment cocktail directly to the scalp. This treatment is also referred to as a virtual or a needle-free mesotherapy. Amongst the bioactive ingredients used in the mesotherapy cocktails are - Phytochemicals (i.e., bioactive ingredients extracted from different plants), Plant Stem cell extracts, Caffeine, Vitamins, Growth Factor Peptides, etc. These ingredients help to reduce hair loss and initiate new hair regrowth via various mechanisms, like stimulation of blood circulation, and the epigenetic reset of the hair bulb and hair follicle regeneration. 

 

How many treatments are in the course and how long is the time interval between the treatments?

We recommend a course of 4 to 8 Needle-free Mesotherapy treatments spaced 7 to 14 days apart. The course may be repeated after a month or two if necessary. It is a quick, lunch time procedure that has no pain or downtime, and hair can be combed immediately after the mesotherapy, and it will look fine. This treatment is suitable for both male and female clients, from the age of 17 and older. We can also provide the clients with home use products and supplements that will assist in obtaining best results.
