Carole had been suffering from Psoriasis and Androgenetic Alopecia since August 2001. Carole started treatments with us in May 2007 and followed our recommendations. Here are her results.
Psoriasis is characterised by the presence of red, raised patches covered by silvery-white scales, which is caused by an abnormally fast cell division rate in the epidermis layer of the skin and is a genetically determined disorder. This condition often leads to increased shedding of hairs in the telogen (resting) phase of the hair cycle and some reduction in hair density.
Androgenetic alopecia in women is often linked to hormonal changes with the hair loss following events such as the menopause, childbirth, or as a result of stopping or starting oral contraceptive pills. The hair loss is generally more uniform over the scalp than in the male counterpart, but also results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone. The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be over sensitive to the DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to the eventual hair loss.
Carole is using the prescribed treatments listed below:
Vitastim Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser
This stimulant is recommended to help stabilise hair loss and strengthen existing hair. It is a natural hop-based solution that works as a vasodilator to increase blood circulation in the scalp and so enable healthy hair growth. It also contains a multi-vitamin complex to help catalyse the process of conversion of amino acids into keratin hair cells and accelerate growth and diameter of the hair from the dermal papilla.
Biostim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser
This stimulant contains a very effective, natural 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of 5-alpha reductase in the scalp and thereby reduces the formation of DHT, stabilising hair loss and encouraging a healthy growth cycle.
Psoriaderm Scalp Treatment
This lotion contains powerful keratolytic (scale-removing) agents to soften and remove compacted scaling and sebum from the hair and scalp. Anti-pruritic agents reduce the irritation and erythema (redness), while antiseptic agents prevent secondary infection. This lotion also contains additional cooling and emollient properties.
This scalp cream is formulated to loosen scale and flaking and to allow it to be removed by washing. It also works to slow down the formation of skin cells that cause scale to form on the surface of the scalp. The main active ingredients of this cream are salicylic acid and cade oil, which have excellent antiseptic and antimitotic properties. It also contains modern antiseptics and fungicides that are highly effective but, unlike many other modern chemicals, will not aggravate the skin tissues, which can lead to further scale forming within a short time of it having been cleared.
This luxurious shampoo is a rich blend of evening primrose, honey, and wheat protein, combined to clean hair thoroughly and gently, removing the excess oil from the scalp without stripping it of the important oil within the scalp tissues. This ensures that the scalp is clean, healthy and in perfect balance, and that the hair is in excellent condition.
This is a light conditioner containing evening primrose oil, jojoba oil and glycerine to aid the spread of natural oils over the surface of the hair and leave it feeling softer and more manageable.
