    How does Carboxytherapy work?

    Read More

    Carboxytherapy is used for the treatment of hair re-growth or hair loss. Carboxytherapy works as follows; it improves circulation at the injection site by forcing red bloods cells to release oxygen and pick up C02 to be eliminated by the body. This process of oxygenating the area causes angiogenesis of blood vessels in the area by nourishing the hair follicle much like laser hair rejuvenation. For Carboxytherapy hair rejuvenation, the injection of C02 has a vasodilation effect (opening up of tiny blood vessels) which allows for the increased nourishment of vitamins and nutrients to the scalp for increased hair growth and stabilization of hair loss. It is a great natural hair loss treatment and works wonders in combination with injected mesotherapy for hair loss.

    How many treatments are necessary?

    Read More

    Normally a series of treatments are required for best results. Initially one treatment is required weekly for the first 4-6 weeks of the hair loss program. Following the initial 4-6 weeks, one would continue treatment on a weekly basis depending on the severity of the condition. In order to achieve successful results, it is essential for the patient to be compliant with the treatments. Some patients may require a 6-month program but for more serious candidates, we recommend a 6 month to 1 year period.

    What causes hair loss?

    Read More

    Hair loss may be caused by heredity, male pattern baldness, diet, medications, postpartum changes, menopausal changes and stress. Hair follicles weaken over time in the scalp's vascular network when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT disrupts the binding of essential proteins and nutrients to cells in the follicle and in turn, this lack of nutrients leads to weakening of the follicle. It also shortens the anagen stage of the hair follicle which is the growing stage and increases the telogen stage or resting stage in the hair growth cycle which leads to thinning hair and hair loss. DHT causes 95% of hair loss. If the hair follicle is still active, if you have thinning hair, or if you are just starting to experience hair loss, laser is a great option for you.
