Female Hair Restoration: Restore Your Hair and Your Confidence

  For women, hair loss isn’t something to be ashamed of, but it does take a number on self-confidence. Hair is so often a symbol of femininity, beauty, and youth. For some women, to lose hair is to personally lose one or more of those aspects of one’s self.

Some culprits of hair loss in women are (but are not limited to):

- Aging

- Pregnancy

- Genetics

- Hypothyroidism

- Lupus

- Iron Deficiency Anemia

- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

- “Over-Styling” [1]

No matter the cause, hair loss can be devastating. Luckily, it can be treated. Unfortunately, the few products) for women on the market contain harsh chemicals, or are not always as effective as we sometimes hope.

At Regeneris Medical, we believe that you have the ability to successfully regrow your hair with our help. We use your own stem cells to help nurture the regrowth of your own hair so that your body truly does the work. [2]

Traditional Options: The Harsh Truth

Although there are a couple of options out there to treat hair loss, they’re not entirely safe, effective, and/or are true to what they claim to do.

Rogaine

One of the most notorious hair-restoration products out there is Minoxidil aka Rogaine. Rogaine is a topical treatment that was the “first FDA approved medication for the treatment of hair loss despite the fact that how it works is still unknown”. [3]

The FDA has only approved of the 2% formulation of Rogaine for use in women. This is because...

Females tend to be more sensitive to the effects of Rogaine on blood pressure. Minoxidil decreases blood pressure and can cause lightheadedness. Using the 5 percent solution, which is approved for use in men, can increase the severity of side effects.

In some women, Rogaine may also cause an increased chance of developing contact dermatitis- an inflamed and irritated rash of the skin. [4]

Lastly, there is no quick-fix with Rogaine- if you decide to use it, you must be in it for the long run. That means that…

- “Only works as long as it's used diligently and routinely” - Hair growth ceases if you stop using Rogaine - You must apply it twice daily - You cannot wash your hair for 4 hours after applying Rogaine - “It cannot be used 24 hours before or after chemical hair processing, such as dying, perming or relaxing the hair.” - You must wait for it to dry, which takes between 2-4 hours [5]

Although effective in many women and certainly common and traditional, Rogaine can be a chemically harsher restoration option in some patients. It’s definitely not ideal for someone looking for a more permanent and safer method.

Laser Comb

The HairMax Laser Comb is “a hand-held laser device” that uses red-light therapy. The product claims to “revive hair follicles” by “increasing circulation and the biological march that makes hair”. Although the Laser Comb is only approved for men, some women have taken to using it. But are there really benefits to this treatment?

David Michaels, the managing director of Lexington International, the company behind the LaserComb, says it works by "transferring light energy to cellular energy" in the follicles. The device can't restore hair to a bald spot, he says, but it can make any remaining hair grow "faster, thicker, heavier and stronger." [6]

Ultimately, the HairMax Laser Comb can enhance your appearance but it needs daily use and becomes another source of daily maintenance.  [7][8]

Regenerate Your Own Hair

At Regeneris Medical, we’ve developed protocols to treat hair loss in a more natural way as an alternative to traditional options. Our safe and effective procedures will aid your body in restoring your own hair and your confidence.

PRP Treatment

The first step is a simple blood draw. We spin the blood in a centrifuge and extract the platelets. We then activate the platelets, add some naturally-occurring growth factors, and return it to your body through a series of pinpoint injections in the affected areas. We use a local anesthetic to numb the scalp and can repeat this as many times as necessary during a procedure to keep the patient comfortable.

PRP and SVF Treatment: WHY STEM CELLS?

Stem cells are tiny progenitor cells found in our body that can divide (through mitosis) and change (differentiate) into various cell types. Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells and can act as your repair system in your body by replenishing adult tissues. They are the source of all these cells that have died.

At Regeneris Medical, we use (MSCs) which is found in various adult tissues and derive them from the most accessible source of stem-cell rich tissue: Adipose tissue (aka fat cells).

MSCs are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage), connective tissues and adipocytes (fat cells). Hair follicle papilla, which is a large structure at the base of the hair follicle bulb, is made up mainly of connective tissue and a capillary loop. Since it is mainly connective tissue, MSCs could play a role in the repair and regenesis of the hair follicle papilla.

This therapy is expected to work by activating already existing stem cells on the scalp. Most recently, some doctors have claimed that stem-cell therapy led to a significant and visible improvement in follicular hair growth.

The first step is a “Mini-Liposuction” We administer a local anesthetic and extract a small amount of fat from your abdomen (about 50 ccs). While we’re extracting the stem cells from the fat, we draw a small amount of blood. We then spin it in a centrifuge and extract the platelets. After that, we activate the platelets and add some naturally-occurring growth factors. Next, we combine the Stem Cells and the Platelet Rich Plasma and return it to your body through a series of pinpoint injections.

Despite sounding complex, these revolutionary procedures are very easy, and can give you the natural results that you are looking for.
