Male pattern baldness

Male pattern baldness affects 30% of men under 40, and up to 50% by the age of 50. Some males show signs of thinning as early as the onset of puberty. The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be over sensitive to DHT and become miniaturised with time, leading to eventual hair loss. Scientifically proven treatments can effectively slow down, stop or in some cases reverse the process to an extent. Successful treatment is greatly improved with early intervention. Formulations to improve regrowth and inhibit DHT combined with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) give maximum results.

Female pattern hair loss

Many women are affected by this upsetting condition with 40% of women by the age of 50 showing signs of hair loss. There may be a thinning of hair on the scalp due to increased hair shedding and a reduction in hair volume. Effective treatments aim to slow or stop the progression of loss although some women do experience hair regrowth with treatment. Early intervention is very important. Non-invasive laser therapy is particularly popular with female patients. Cosmetic hair fibres and scalp concealers provide instant improvement for scalp coverage.

Alopecia areata 

Alopecia Areata can affect 1 to 2% of people at some point in their lives. Most sufferers are children and young adults (below 40 years of age) Hair loss is sudden and manifests itself in small, smooth-skinned patches that are likely to gradually widen with time. Monitoring is important in this slow progressing condition. Treatment includes stimulating therapies, lotions and supplements to help encourage regrowth.

Seborrheic dermatitis 

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common, inflammatory skin condition that mainly affects the scalp, causing itchy, white to yellow patchy scales or thick crusts. It can occur with or without reddened skin. This is a chronic (life-long) condition with extended inactive periods followed by flare-ups which can effectively be controlled with the correct treatment.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is characterised by the presence of red, raised patches covered by silvery-white scales. This genetically determined disorder is caused by an abnormally fast cell division rate in the epidermis layer of the skin. Treatment involves slowing down the rapid growth of skin cells to reduce the persistent build-up of scale.

Products will help to return the state of the skin to normalcy and reduce the redness and itching. Because psoriasis involves an abnormally high growth rate of skin cells, products will reset the normal balance of the skin’s growth factors and return the growth rates to their normal levels. Applications used on a daily basis will reduce the rash, inflammation and itching to help break the itch-scratch cycle.

Eczema and Shingles
The Intensive Moisturizer can also be applied to keep the affected area of skin moist and in a state conducive to normal healing.

Shingles
Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. Although shingles can occur anywhere on your body, the rash most often appears as a single strip of blisters that wraps around either the left or right side of the torso.
This product will also be helpful once the shingles are past the blister stage.
