Thinning hair? How to get your volume back!
Sometimes we go through phases where we are enjoying big hair days, and at other times we notice that our hair is falling a little bit more than we like. To find the right solution, you need to understand the cause of the issue before addressing it.
First of all, we need to check if we are missing out on any essential nutrients. Following a strict diet might deprive the body of its basic requirements. The vitamins and minerals that need to be checked are mainly iron and vitamin B (mostly B12 and B7 (Biotin). You shouldn’t be taking extra supplements if you do not have any deficiencies. Collagen is also the essence of youth, and anyone over 30 should consider taking collagen, at least intermittently.
The second possible cause would be hormones; Female androgenetic alopecia (FAGA). Some women go through hormonal imbalances once they hit puberty or after they give birth. They notice their hair becomes thinner over the central scalp. This could also be due to thyroid function disorder or severe stress.
Any hormonal-related hair loss can now be treated using stem cells. The process takes approximately one hour. An injection extracts small scalp biopsies and places them in the Rigenera Activa device to extract stem cells. They are then injected into the scalp.
It will take the hair up to three months to grow back in the central scalp area. The advantage of this process is that it doesn’t require many sessions. Usually, results will show within one or two sessions.
This method is different than Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which extracts blood from the patient and reinjects the plasma. PRP rejuvenates the problematic area but doesn’t necessarily result in hair regrowth. It is also not the same as hair planting, which is a very painful and long process.
Lastly, if your hair loss is not related to deficiencies or hormones, but merely due to age, or just damage due to highlights or excess blow-drying, then you have the option of hair fillers. The treatment results in thicker-looking hair right away and lasts up to one year. The ingredients of hair filler include are based on 7 biomimetic peptides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins.
