PRP as Hair Loss Treatment

YouTube Preview Image

 

Technology abounds us. Medical research with technology is advancing all the time. PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma has been researched, documented and applied as an injection to stimulate healing since 1998. http://bebevida.pt/ficheiros_artigos%5CMarx%201998%20oral%20and%20maxillafacial.pdf

Because of the reported healing actions, PRP is now becoming popular hair loss treatment option. “PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.”[1]

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma as hair Loss Treatment:

  • Reported healing action
  • Processing to enrich cells
  • Injected into the scalp
  • Becoming a popular hair loss treatment option

The basic idea behind PRP injections is to deliver high concentrations of growth factors to the scalp with the hope of stimulating hair growth. The problems I can see with PRP is the fact that it does not address the symptoms and causes. I have seen good results from PRP documented, but have also seen some of my clients spend a lot of money on the course of injections, with no result because they have not addressed the actual hair loss or hair thinning cause.

PRP, like all other Hair Loss Treatment options should address all symptoms and causes at the same time following correct diagnosis. There is simply no point using PRP alone for hair thinning, as a standalone treatment for hair loss or as a singular hair growth treatment. PRP could very well be a positive addition to hair loss treatment for women and men, but please be sure to understand and address your individual thinning hair and hair loss causes.

Results, Hair Loss Treatment for Men

Male, 26 years old, presenting with obvious male pattern thinning but was early onset and microscope found hair cell and hair cycle were interrupted. Described hair loss, receding hairline and thinning on the crown. Father has hair thinning but did not start till way into his 30’s. When the hair cell and hair cycle are not at their optimal, it will compromise the immune system of the cell and allow for pattern thinning to begin at an earlier age, ‘early onset’.

Mr C was an otherwise healthy individual but consultation and blood work uncovered highs and lows in nutritional elements, sleep, eating habits and stress. These types of things over longer periods of time such as 3 years in this case, will affect health and in turn hair.

Results, Hair Loss Treatment for Men:

  • 1st four months, Basic Topical, simple prevention
  • 2nd four months add Hair Cell and Hair Cycle Topical + MPT Topical
  • 3rd four months add Nutrition and natural DHT inhibitor
  • Awesome results at the 12-month mark

1st four months. Mr C’s main concern was to stop the hair thinning and keep the hair the same as it was. This is quite simple using Absolique Basic Topical – Scalp Brush Therapy, Scalp Cleanser and Activance Practitioner. The Basic Topical replaces your hair washing and needs to be repeated every 2nd day or 3 times a week minimum. Digital tracking at 4 months proved hair thinning had stopped and improved.

2nd four months. With such impressive results, Mr C asked what more would be required to re-grow hair at recessions. We added further topicals – Scalp Tonique, Absolique GRN and PG Free Minoxidil. This was added to Basic Topical and included in hair washing regime every 2nd day or 3 times a week. Microscopic tracking began and booked to check in another 4 months.

3rd four months. Again, results were impressive and Mr C had made many personal healthful changes based on his knowledge of his pH balance. Bloods still showed some highs and lows and microscope still uncovered some hair cell problems in terminal area. Nutrition was discussed and decision to progress to this level for cellular support was made.

12-month mark. We share this story to demonstrate how a little can make a result but progressing into further combination therapy can make a big impact. We normally go in with full combination therapy in the 1st four months so It was impressive even for us to see such and outstanding improvement by adding in nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Preventing Post Partum Alopecia with Hair Loss Treatment For Women

YouTube Preview Image

 

Post Partum Alopecia (Post Pregnancy Hair Loss), is a part of every pregnancy. In the last trimester of pregnancy women don’t lose their daily quota of hair. This results in a lush head of hair related to the pregnant glow. However, 3 months after baby is born, 3 months after cycle resumes or 3 months after breastfeeding ceases, women lose double the daily quota of hair.

Post Pregnancy hair loss will continue for 3 months once it begins. Your hair type and heath during this time will determine if you notice this hair loss. It is part of every single women’s pregnancy, but some women notice it more than others. Absolique Hair Health Clinic are always researching, testing and trialing. We had the opportunity to run a trial with a pregnant woman to see if working with the hair cycle during and after birth, could we prevent Post Partum hair loss.

How We Prevented Post Partum Alopecia with Hair Loss Treatment For Women:

  • Check and correct hair cell function
  • Stabilize hair cycle
  • Check blood work and health
  • Start trial at beginning of 2nd trimester

Trial consisted of topical treatment that became an easy hair washing regime. We followed a full treatment once a week and a mini treatment once a week to make trial time effective. Full treatment consisted of Scalp Brush Therapy, Scalp Cleansing, Scalp Tonique, Hair Shampoo & Conditioner, Microneedle Therapy, Activance Practitioner and GRN Grow.Revitalise.Nourish. Mini Treatment consisted of Scalp Brush Therapy, Scalp Cleansing, Scalp Tonique, Hair Shampoo & Conditioner, Activance Practitioner and GRN.

We tracked trial with microscope every 4 months to see typical hair density increase in 3rd trimester and 2 month post pregnancy and again 6 months after birth where cycle had resumed and breastfeeding ceased all around same time, 3 months after birth. All the triggers for Post Partum hair loss happened at the same time. If post partum were to occur, it would certainly be at our 6th scope session. There was no sign of Post Partum hair loss at all.

This is a breakthrough for women who had had Post Partum hair loss and wish to avoid it for future pregnancies or for those who have has hair loss or hair thinning and cannot afford to lose more hair during Post Partum hair loss. We could also use this preventative method when starting/stopping medication or to support medical health conditions that trigger hair loss.

pH Balance with Trichologist Brisbane

Acid Buffer is Absolique night time alkalizer. Use acid buffer if your morning pH is below 7.0 or if you have anything acid during the day. Acid things can be food, stress, lack of sleep, alcohol and overeating. These things are typical of holiday times, so Acid Buffer is a good way to buffer your pH while having a bit of fun.

Just a reminder about storing Absolique Acid Buffer. The formula does not like humidity at all. It is best to keep refrigerated at all times, where possible. The instructions state to ‘Sore in a cool, dry place’, ‘Store below 25®C’, ‘Keep container tightly sealed’ and ‘Refrigerate after opening’. In warmer climates, we suggest you keep it refrigerated always.

pH Balance with Trichologist Brisbane:

  • Absolique night time alkalizer
  • Keep refrigerated
  • 1 heaped teaspoon
  • Small glass filtered water
  • Take at bedtime before brushing teeth

Depending on where you live, we may not be able to ship Absolique Acid Buffer. If this is the case for you, here is how you can make your own; 1 heaped teaspoon bicarb of soda (organic if possible), mix into small glass of filtered water. It is not very tasty, so you may like to add some lemon or lime juice or a safe Vitamin C powder. This formula will work the same as Absolique Acid Buffer.

It is a good idea to keep an eye on your pH even during holiday time. It is interesting to see what different foods and environments do to your pH. Use Acid Buffer as required to help let your hair down a little and enjoy holiday time. Acid Buffer will buffer the acid helping the body to be more alkaline in the morning, but will not fix an acid pH on its own. Only you can do that!

Nutrition with Trichologist Brisbane

Nutritional therapy is a big part of Absolique Trichologist treatment plans for hair loss, hair thinning and scalp conditions. If you are in the first 4 months of nutritional therapy hair loss treatments with Absolique, you must stick to your plan exactly, no exemptions. Following your first 4 months we would have checked your results and provided you with a maintenance plan.

Nutritional therapy maintenance is much easier and flexible for holidays. In the first 4 months, we are raising levels to support cellular function and hair growth using ‘Supplementary Range’ (SR). Once SR is achieved we need to maintain with ‘Recommended Daily Intake’ (RDI). Sometimes we are still helping you to address deficiencies, if that is the case, things are not so flexible for you, so please follow the plan you were provided.

Holiday Nutrition:

  • Not flexible in the first 4 months
  • Can be flexible when on maintenance plan
  • Need to maintain ‘Recommended Daily Intake’ (RDI)
  • Not flexible when addressing deficiencies

The key here is maintaining RDI. If you have access and desire to eat nutritious, raw organic food in the correct food combination in a Ph alkaline environment… you may obtain RDI from food. If you like to have fun on your holidays, as I do, then I would eat and drink sensibly but fall back on The Green Qi with base nutrition at least 4-5 days a week, once a day, on a hungry empty tummy.

It is simply an easy back up plan and can be arranged around any holiday or travel plans. Have fun, but be careful not to fall off the bandwagon. Once home and routine life returns, pick back up where you left off with your nutrition treatment plan for best results at your next scope session. If you have any questions or concerns about your holiday nutrition please contact Absolique Hair Health Clinic. Call 07 3229 3242 or email Trichologist Brisbane at info@absolique.com.au

If you know us at Absolique Hair Health Clinic you would know we are specialists when it comes to hair loss treatments and hair thinning treatments combination therapy. If you have had a diagnosis with us, you will now understand the cause of the hair loss or hair thinning came from inside the body. We teach you how to address this through understanding pH and the importance of eliminating chemicals from not only hair and scalp products but also personal care products.

Now here is one chemical exposure you may not have thought about, New Clothes. I was reading an article by Dr. Mercola, one of my favorite health bloggers, and though this worth sharing because most would not consider this a risk. Dr. Mercola said “Depending on what country your new clothes were manufactured in, they may contain multiple chemicals of concern. Among them are azo-aniline dyes, which may cause skin reactions ranging from mild to severe. If you’re sensitive, such dyes may leave your skin red, itchy and dry, especially where the fabric rubs on your skin, such as at your waist, neck, armpits and thighs. Formaldehyde resins are also used in clothing to cut down on wrinkling and mildew. Not only is formaldehyde a known carcinogen, but the resins have been linked to eczema and may cause your skin to become flaky or erupt in a rash. And there is also Nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE), which is a toxic endocrine-disrupting surfactant used to manufacture clothing.”

Trichologist Brisbane, New Clothes may contain:

  • Multiple chemicals of concern
  • Azo-aniline dyes which may cause skin reactions
  • Formaldehyde resins, formaldehyde a known carcinogen
  • Nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE), which is a toxic endocrine-disrupting surfactant

These questionable substances may not be directly related to hair loss or hair thinning, but when taking a healthful approach for natural hair loss treatments it will only assist you and your health to eliminate as many harmful substances as possible from your world.

Dr. Mercola suggests “Many experts do recommend washing new clothes when you bring them home from the store, maybe even twice. If the article of clothing cannot be machine washed, consider running it through a cycle in a hot dryer before wearing it. You may also want to keep on some clothes while trying on new clothing at a store (at least leave on your undergarments, and then wash those too when you get home). Washing your hands after shopping is also a good idea, as you’ve been handling clothing that could have any number of chemicals and other contaminants on them.”

Also be aware of what you are using to wash your clothes. Mother Earth News shares ingredients to avoid here… http://www.motherearthliving.com/health-and-wellness/toxic-laundry-detergent-ingredients-zmez12mazmel.aspx

Detoxing and Treatments for Hair Loss

YouTube Preview Image

 

Detoxing is the bodies cleansing reaction following positive changes internally and externally. Detox; verb, abstain from or rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health. The body eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.

Detox can produce some unpleasant side effects. Initially people may feel fatigue, nausea or diarrhea as toxins are expelled from the body. Headaches are common when the body is going through caffeine and refined sugar withdrawals. The side effects are stronger with more radical detox plans such as juice fasting or eating only brown rice and water. Symptoms also vary according to your diet, living conditions and the amount of toxins you have.

Detoxing and Treatments for Hair Loss:

  • Rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances
  • Removing and eliminating toxins
  • Feeding the body with healthy nutrients
  • Protect from disease and renew ability to maintain optimum health

At Absolique we use pH testing to gauge your individual level of toxins. Most of us find we have an acid pH which indicates the presence of toxins. Whilst detoxing is a healthful thing to do, we are focused on helping you with your hair loss or hair thinning. In most cases we need to get started on hair loss treatments straight away so there is no time to go through a detox program to find your pH may still be acid. This is why we use the Green Qi powder.

Green Qi alone is not a detox. However, used in conjunction with our hair loss treatments nutritional program and pH positive diet and lifestyle changes, can in certain individuals cause detox symptoms. If you experience any detox symptoms for more than a few days, please contact us at Absolique so we can help you through. In some cases, we may suggest a process of elimination which entails stopping all recommended hair loss treatments (depending on your symptoms), allowing your body to get back to your normal and then reintroducing on element of your hair loss treatments at a time until we have stability and no symptoms.

Detox symptoms may be experienced from topical hair loss treatments as this is an external cleanse, and/or from oral nutritional combination therapy. For the majority, there are no negative detox symptoms at all.

MTHFR and Treatment for Hair Loss

YouTube Preview Image

 

We are going to share some light on the MTHFR condition as is becoming more common amongst clients seeking help for hair loss. An MTHFR gene mutation affects the body’s ability to use folic acid or folate & increases risk of disease. There are many side effects to this mutation that can be detrimental to health and nutrition.

The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. This enzyme plays a role in processing amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase is important for a chemical reaction involving forms of the vitamin folate (also called vitamin B9). Specifically, this enzyme converts a molecule called 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to a molecule called 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. This reaction is required for the multistep process that converts the amino acid homocysteine to another amino acid, methionine. The body uses methionine to make proteins and other important compounds. http://wellnessmama.com/27148/mthfr-mutation/

MTHFR Gene Mutation Symptoms:

  • High homocysteine levels: Caused by poor methylation
  • Folate deficiency: A deficiency in folic acid (folate) could be linked to MTHFR and is worth checking out. Common symptoms include extreme fatigue, light-headedness, and forgetfulness
  • Had a miscarriage: Many practitioners recommend testing for MTHFR mutations if you have had one or more miscarriages.
  • Longstanding gastrointestinal issues: Such as irritable bowel syndrome
  • An autoimmune disease: Such as fibromylagia, although this is based more on anecdotes than solid science
  • Long history of anxiety or depression: Based more on anecdotes than solid science.
  • It’s important to note that an MTHFR mutation itself is not inherently dangerous… but any form of genetic variance has the possibility to affect your health
  • http://www.dietvsdisease.org/mthfr-mutation-symptoms-and-diet/

The MTHFR mutation test may sometimes be ordered when a person has elevated homocysteine levels, especially when the person has a personal or family history of premature cardiovascular disease or thrombosis. It may sometimes be ordered when a close relative has MTHFR gene mutations, although it may not be useful if that relative has normal homocysteine levels, and some laboratories and organizations recommend against using it for thrombophilia screening. Results typically are reported as negative or positive and, if positive, the report will name the mutation(s) present. Often, an interpretation of the results is also provided. https://labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/mthfr/tab/test/

Treatment for MTHFR can vary and needs to be individualized and guided by a physician who works with this condition often. The general advice tends to lean toward prescriptive supplementation along with good diet and lifestyle choices. If you suspect MTHFR follow the links we have included and visit your health care advisor. http://www.mthfrsupport.com.au/

Unusual Hair Loss Problem

YouTube Preview Image

 

As Absolique Trichologist I came across an unusual case recently that I thought worthy of sharing. We had various circular patches of broken hair at scalp level. Many would see this visually as Alopecia Areata. But when the patches were viewed with 60x magnification microscope, clinically it appeared very different to the common signs used to diagnose Alopecia Areata.

All the hair follicles were intact in the patches, but they had twisted, broken hairs at the dermal level, which on the surface looked like hair breakage or recovering Alopecia Areata. As a Trichologist of 20 years, this was not a text book case of hair loss and it was difficult to find a matching image and diagnosis as microscopes are relatively new to Trichology with limited industry microscopic images available. What did make this case a little more difficult was the typical reddens, itching and swelling that usually is associated with Tinea Capitis.

Unusual Hair Loss Problem – Tina Capitis:

  • Tinea Capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp
  • Is also called Ringworm
  • Is a dermatophyte fungus
  • Common in children, less frequent in adults
  • Dry scaling like dandruff but usually with moth-eaten hair loss
  • Black dots where the hairs are broken off at the scalp surface

The diagnosis of tinea capitis was clear for me with the microscope. However, we had a very difficult time convincing the doctor of the same. Various doctors were adamant it was Alopecia Areata simply based on the circular patches. Tinea capitis requires medical attention and assistance of medication. We finally managed to get the correct diagnosis through laboratory tests confirmed by microscopy and culture of skin scrapings which one doctor humored us with. The lab results took at least two weeks to come back with correct diagnosis before any medical intervention could be taken. Tinea capitis is usually treated with oral antifungal medicines.

Hair loss should be taken seriously. If you are not getting any answers from your medical advisor, always seek other opinions. Had this case been left misdiagnosed, this young boy could have lost most of his hair and it could have further affected his health and that of family and classmates.

Correct diagnosis is the key. Contact Absolique Hair Health Clinic for more information on this and other Unusual Hair Loss Problems. Call reception team on 07 3229 3242 or email Absolique Trichologist info@absolique.com.au
