According to research studies, 25% of women at age 30 struggle with hair loss. The percentage increases in men to 90% at age 35 for those who are concerned about hair thinning, losing hair and male pattern baldness. By the age of 50, 85% of men experience baldness (source: American Academy of Dermatology)
Hair loss can affect your self confidence because it has a major effect on how you look. Because of this there are many people who are looking for ways to re-grow hair and also stop the hair loss.
There are many hair-loss products out there but they only attack the problem from one aspect of the hair loss problem. The truth is we healthcare professionals still do not know all of the causes hair loss and premature balding. We do know that the causes of hair loss are many and generally involve advancing age, hormonal imbalances, genetic factors, and certain hair styles worn for extended periods of time.
We know that hair growth depends on the ability of the dermal papilla cells to make and release growth hormones which then signals the hair follicles to grow new hair cells.
Growth Factor Cytokines, Coenzymes,Vitamins, Minerals, and Amino Acids all work together to provide a localized increase in blood flow to nourish and stimulate these dermal papilla cells which increases hair growth.
We also know that DHT( Dihydrotestosterone ) is a substance created in our body that is toxic to hair follicles. There is an enzyme (5-alpha reductase) in our body that converts testosterone to DHT. So, it lowers the testosterone level as it increases theDHT Levels; which causes hair loss.
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant known to stimulate hair growth and reverse hair loss.We also know that Biotin increases hair growth. Biotin is a water soluble, B-complex vitamin used to treat a hair loss condition called Alopecia
Alopecia is quite common and causes many forms of hair loss. Certain hair styles contribute to hair loss, namely hair braids, and hair weaves. Both styles can put significant stress on the hair follicle causing it to be ripped out leaving a vanishing hairline over time. Heating the scalp as in hair dryers and flat irons used to straighten curly hair also causes destruction of the hair follicle over time.
Since we know the top causes of hair loss, we can devise a strategy that takes steps to attack the problem from the inside out and outside in.
How Do I Treat Hair Loss?
I combine therapies in my specifically designed approach to help reduce hair loss. I call it the Dr. Riggins Hair Restoration Cocktail. I initially use DaytonaHL Serum topically on the patient’s scalp weekly ( for 10 weeks ) using micro-needling on the scalp to push the serum deep below the scalp surface into the dermis of the scalp. The DaytonaHLSerum is composed of Growth Factor Cytokines, Coenzymes, Vitamins, MineralsAmino Acids and Glutathione.
To help combat hair loss from the inside out, I then use a CBD Oil infused product,“Hemptabulous”, sub-lingually ( under the tongue ) as a hair supplement and topically on the patient’s scalp twice daily 3 days a week in between DaytonaHL Serum treatments. It takes 6 months to achieve maximum effect but most patients have amazing initial results in 10-12 weeks.
I also use Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy ( PRP ). PRP therapy involves using your own blood to help stimulate hair growth. Your own blood has Growth Factor Cytokines,Coenzymes, Vitamins, Minerals Amino Acids and Stem Cells needed to stimulate hair growth. We do a venipuncture to obtain 20cc’s of your blood. We then spin the blood down in a special centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the blood plasma - the liquid part of your blood. The plasma has all of the above mentioned Growth FactorCytokines, Coenzymes, Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Stem Cells. We then inject the PRP into the scalp into the dermis using multiple tiny injections with a small needle the size of an insulin needle.
It takes about 6 months to see maximum results, but the majority of patients see amazing initial results in 12 weeks. I have personally used the DaytonaHL Serum for my hair thinning problem and I love my results after just 12 weeks.
