In years past, effective options to improve hair loss were not available, especially drug-free options. Today there are a wide variety of effective options available that will improve hair loss, many of which are drug-free. At the Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa in Nashville, we are proud to offer several drug-free options for the improvement of hair loss that are beneficial and effective for both men and women.
Viviscal Professional is a dietary hair supplement that is scientifically formulated with marine complex AminoMar, which is the exclusive active ingredient to Viviscal and is proven by clinical studies to promote existing hair growth from within. Viviscal Professional nourishes thinning hair that is prone to breakage and shedding. Viviscal is 100% drug-free and is suitable for both men and women. It is not recommended for those who are allergic to fish or seafood, women who are pregnant or nursing or any person under the age of 18.
Viviscal Professional ingredients include the following:
- AminoMar marine complex is derived from marine sources and promotes existing hair growth from within.
- Apple Extract Powder (Procyanidin B-2) increases hair density and diameter, promoting hair growth.
- Biotin is an essential ingredient for healthy hair growth and formation of hair structure.
- Vitamin C protects hair and skin from free radicals.
- L-Cystien and L-Methionine are important amino acids in the formation of hair and skin.
Backed by published clinical trials with the world’s leading clinicians, 80% of Viviscal Professional users noticed a statistically significant increase in the number of hairs after 6 months. In clinical studies, users also reported significant improvement in their overall quality of life, overall hair growth and volume, scalp coverage, the thickness of hair, hair strength, and overall skin health.
Viviscal Professional works by nourishing the hair from within in four stages. Results are noticeable within 3 months depending on each individual user’s hair growth cycle. By stage 4 of the hair growth cycle, hair appears stronger, healthier, and more vibrant as nutrients are thoroughly replenished. For best results, it is recommended to take Viviscal Professional supplements twice daily for a minimum of 6 months, however, users may see results in as little as 3 months, thereafter you will continue to take 1-2 tablets daily. It is best to take one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening with water after food.
Ducray by Glytone
Ducray is another highly-effective hair growth brand offered at our state-of-the-art medical spa in Nashville. Ducray products include a variety of topical and oral solutions for hair loss, such as:
Anacaps is an oral supplement that contains a medicated blend of ingredients without any marine by-product. It is similar to Viviscal in how it should be taken, however, it is a wonderful option for those who may have a fish allergy and are unable to use that particular product.
Alopexy is a minoxidil topical solution with specialized options for men and women. Since men and women’s hormone levels are so very different, and hormone fluctuations are often a cause for hair loss, it is beneficial to have specially formulated solutions for the each gender. Alopexy works on the scalp similarly to a medicated version of Rogaine. It has been clinically proven to help grow new hair, stimulate regrowth of current hair follicles, and prolongs the growth phase of the hair cycle. It comes packaged as a 3-month supply to encourage continual use during the hair growth cycle.
Neoptide is another topical option with formulas for both men and women as well. It is a lotion spray that helps reduce hair loss, strengthens the follicles, boosts volume, and improves the appearance of healthy hair. It is a non-greasy formula and absorbs immediately into the scalp without residue. It is packaged as a 3-month supply of the spray.
Creastim is the last of Ducray’s current topical solutions, but unique in that this particular formula is targeted at sudden or acute hair loss. Many times in our lives we are met with stressful, difficult situations that affect our hormones and inevitably take a toll on our hair. Whether it be the sudden loss of a friend or family member, the birth of a child, a traumatic accident or even a surgery, these events could be the cause of sudden hair loss.
Creastim is safe to use while breastfeeding and packaged as a 2-month supply to encourage the development of strong, healthy hair following the event that caused the rapid change in hair.
Anaphase shampoo is a cream shampoo that works nicely with any of the previously mentioned treatments to help stimulate and maximize results from these treatments.
Nutrafol is a daily oral supplement to help manage hair loss. Nutrafol offers a blend of all-natural ingredients
proven to help with the four common signs of stress-related hair loss. In many cases, hair loss may occur as a result of stress and imbalanced hormone levels, therefore, the key ingredients in hair supplements are formulated specifically to suit the hormone needs of men and women differently.
Nutrafol has created a formula for both men and women to help repair the hair follicles creating fuller thicker hair. After 1 month of taking this supplement, you will notice that hair starts to fall out less. Most women will find a decrease in the amount of hair left in the drain after showering and in their hair brush. At 3 months, the hair will start to appear thicker and have more shine. At 4 months, fine “baby” hairs will start to grow and after 6 months bald spots start to fill in!
Nutrafol not only helps to improve hair loss but it also helps to improve skin and lower stress and anxiety levels.
