Hair regeneration treatment at CaTara Medical Spa is a non-surgical approach to hair loss. Millions of Americans, both male and female, suffer from hair loss. Our hair growth rate decelerates as we age. There are also factors other than age that affect thinning hair such as genetics, hormones, medications, diseases and conditions, diet and nutrition, hair styling practices, scalp health, and of course stress. All these factors affect the hair growth cycle, density and thickness of hair, hair follicles can become dormant, and eventually this dormant state can become permanent.
There are 3 phases of the hair growth cycle – anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen is the active phase in which hair grows. Catagen is the transitional phase in which growth stops, and the outer sheath of the root shrinks. Telogen is the resting phase. Hairs in the telogen phase are the hairs that shed. Normally, we shed 25-100 telogen hairs each day. Exosomes also stimulate cell repair and prolong the hair growth cycle. The length of each phase varies. For the scalp, the active anagen phase can last anywhere from 2-6 years, catagen 2-3 weeks, and telogen about 100 days.
Signs of hair loss include excess shedding, widening parts, receding growth at the hairline and temples, balding at the crown, and overall thinning.
EXOSOMES FOR REGENERATION:
We use an exosome complex containing billions of stem cell derived exosomes, growth factors, peptides, coenzymes, amino acids, humectants, vitamins, and irritation reduction agents. This complex can also be boosted with biotin. Biotin, or vitamin B7, stimulates keratin production in hair which increases follicle growth rates. Exosomes are responsible for cell-to-cell communication and helps to stimulate hair growth. Damaged cells regenerate themselves and dormant hair follicles stuck in the resting phase are converted to the growth phase which causes the hair to grow for a longer period of time before it sheds.
Exosomes can be injected and/or microneedled alone, or they can be combined with Natural Growth Factor Injections for a boosted treatment to get even better results.
Natural Growth Factor Injections/Natural Growth Factor Injections FOR REGENERATION:
Platelet Rich Plasma (Natural Growth Factor Injections) or Platelet Rich Fibrin (Natural Growth Factor Injections) is extracted from your own blood platelets and injected and/or microneedled for additional stimulation into the scalp where the hair is thinning. Natural Growth Factor Injections/Natural Growth Factor Injections contains many stem cells, growth factors, and fibrins which stimulate cell repair, damage control, hair follicles and new hair growth. The combination of stimulations help to improve the number of hairs per follicle which leads to thicker, healthier hair.
HYDRAFACIAL® KERAVIVE FOR REGENERATION
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. HydraFacial Keravive is a unique, relaxing treatment designed to cleanse, nourish, and hydrate the scalp for fuller and healthier-looking hair.
Poor scalp health can be characterized by dry skin, clogged hair follicles, dead skin cells, and overall lack of circulation. This can be a major contributor to damaged and thinning hair and inhibit the growth of healthy hair.
HydraFacial Keravive is a 3-step treatment:
- Cleanse + Exfoliate: Relaxing, painless suction and hydration removes dirt, oil, and dead skin, and cleanses hair follicles.
- Hydrate + Nourish: Optimized delivery of a proprietary blend of 5 biomimetic growth factors (mimic biochemical processes of growth factors) and 2 skin proteins directly to the scalp.
- Daily Follow-up: Take-home spray to deliver daily scalp and hair follicle nourishment and stimulation.
The result? Healthier, Thicker, Fuller-Looking Hair!
HydraFacial Keravive can be combined with other treatments to improve results.
IS THE GROWTH I GET FROM REGENERATION TREATMENTS PERMANENT?
Once the scalp requires treatment to generate hair growth, treatment will need to be continued. Touch-up treatments are usually done every 6 months to a year to maintain the resulting growth. Results can also be boosted with a good home regimen that includes proper hair care, topical treatments, good nutrition, hair growth supplements, and low-level laser or LED light therapy. Combination therapy is often the best approach to provide an optimal healthy environment for growth.
WHEN SHOULD I START RECEIVING HAIR REGENERATION TREATMENTS, AND WHICH TREATMENT SHOULD I GET?
Hair loss will worsen over time without intervention, and improvement is more unlikely the longer the follicle is dormant and if the thinning area becomes smooth and shiny. It is better to act sooner rather than later.
