We often hear complaints from women and men who are experiencing significant hair loss. The Brazilian Beauty Medical team are excited to now be offering solutions for those experiencing hair thinning, hair loss or balding.
Most people have about 100 000 hairs on their heads and lose around 100 to 125 hairs per day. This amount of hair loss is considered normal hair turnover. However, significant hair loss and thinning is a major concern affecting many males and females. Until recently, there were few options available on the market to assist with hair regrowth.
Pattern hair loss is as a result of a condition called Androgenetic Alopecia. DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is the main hormone believed to be responsible for this condition as it inhibits growth stimulating pathways in the hair follicle. As a result, terminal hairs transition from thick, pigmented hairs into thin, non-pigmented vellus hair.

HOW CAN I TREAT HAIR LOSS?
Studies have shown the beneficial role of Skin Needling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to help assist with hair regrowth as a results of Androgenetic Alopecia.
Micro-Needling activates the body’s natural wound healing response and this response can be utilised to reverse Androgenetic Alopecia. The Needling action re-activates the pathways in the hair follicle, activates a release of growth factors and stimulates the Stem Cells. The combination of these three actions help to strengthen the hair follicle to support thicker, terminal hair.
Platelet Rich-Plasma (PRP)
PRP is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets (also known as thrombocytes).
PRP helps to accelerate and promote the body‘s natural healing and rejuvenation process without subjecting patients to significant risk.
The philosophy is to merge cutting edge technology with the body’s natural ability to heal. PRP technology was initially developed 20 years ago to aid with wound healing and blood loss. Now it is being used successfully across a wide range of applications such as skin rejuvenation, hair loss treatment, sports injuries, wound care and gynaecology.
