Carboxytherapy for hair loss is a unique procedure offered at Skin Renewal, which is an injection of C02 gas below the scalp with the use of a 30.5 gauge mesotherapy needle. The treatment is virtually painless and quick. There is no downtime with this procedure.

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 blood 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.

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.

Clients usually notice a stabilization of hair loss after 3 months and an increase in growth of vellus hairs and thinning hair at 6 months. Most clients notice decrease shedding as well in the first 3 to 6 months. If you have thinning hair or a receding hairline come in for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for hair rejuvenation.

Although Carboxytherapy is effective in itself, we do recommend combination therapy such as combining Carboxytherapy with injected mesotherapy for long-lasting results. Multiple treatments are required for the best results.

Carboxytherapy started in France and has been widely used for over 70 years with no major side effects. Its aesthetic use is now commonplace in Europe and is now gaining popularity in South Africa. Skin Renewal is a leading provider of Carboxytherapy in South Africa. Skin Renewal offers well-priced, safe Carboxytherapy treatments administered by qualified and highly trained therapists under the supervision of a doctor.

Hair loss may be caused by heredity, male pattern baldness, diet, medications, postpartum changes, menopausal changes, and stress. Hair follicles weaken overtime 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 the 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, the laser is a great option for you.

The best candidates are those who are just starting to experience the early signs or stages of hair loss/thinning hair.
