Overview of Treatment Approach
As a qualified treatment practitioner for hair + scalp problems, my responsibilities to you is to identify + establish the cause/s of your condition, AND suggest the most appropriate treatment option/s for you*.
Whilst most hair loss companies offer a ‘one treatment fits all’ standard treatment regime for genetic balding in males – I regularly find nutritional deficiency or metabolic disturbance in the pathology testing I suggest. Internal nutritional deficiency or metabolic disturbance would adversely influence the successful outcome of any hair loss treatment regime. ‘Optimal results’ are best achieved by a thorough history evaluation, specific pathology testing, and appropriate treatment/s (or referral) to correct any disturbance. Following your initial consultation and pathology assessment, this is the usual treatment approach I suggest for my male clients:
Initial treatment accelerators
Low Level Laser Light Therapy (LLLT): is a safe, versatile + effective treatment modality where increasing skin blood flow (vaso-dilation) + decreasing inflammatory response is indicated (almost every skin condition). LLLT will potentiate the effects of Activance and accelerate healing/recovery of the hair loss or scalp problem whilst underlying cause/s is being corrected– which takes longer to ‘reflect’ in the hair ***
Activance Rhodanide (and/or) advance-formulated Minoxidil topical solutions: the regular use of these topical treatments will accelerate scalp hair density recovery whilst underlying cause/s is being corrected. Activance Practitioner Series topical hair treatment is only available from select authorised Practitioners such as Anthony Pearce Trichology. Patient trials indicate combining both topicals provides optimal results (where indicated) as the active ingredient (Rhodanide) is a DHT-antagonist.
Nutrient therapy for optimal hair growth & body function
Appropriate nutrient therapy supplementation (as determined by pathology results): ‘all inclusive’** natural + effective nutritional treatment tailored to the individual client’s nutritional needs in a four or eight month treatment program (with review at 4-6 months). This may also include Iodine, Vitamin D, Zinc Complex or Gut treatment products as required.
**Announcing Vitamin D formulation Breakthrough: The use Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) as a base to replace current fish oil or flax seed oil bases is a most important advance in both safety & efficacy for those Clients who are Vitamin D deficient, but who also have a history of seafood or nut allergies. Taken just before -or with the main meal of the day minimises risk of upset stomach and enhances the absorption Vitamin D (>X10). There is NO longer any requirement for this supplement to be taken with a protein meal – just with one’s main meal (Chan: 2015
FDA/TGA-approved oral medication*** (with prescription) that’s proven to stabilise genetic balding in >80% males. ***Finesteride or Dutesteride
‘Hair loss specific’ Saw Palmetto/Siberian Ginseng Complex developed by Australia’s leading Research Pharmacist explicitly to lower Testosterone-DHT ratios AND as a tonic for male reproductive/urological health. This is NOT just another Saw Palmetto product..!!.. Can also be safely taken by women to lower Testosterone (TT) levels + alter TT pathways (by converting TT back to Oestrogen)
**The combined use of ALL the above treatments have been shown to provide the best outcome in the quickest time for our clients but may be modified to personal, distance & financial considerations**
