Vampire Hair Restoration with Calecim: Can It Cure Baldness?
If you think vampire hair restoration sounds more like a Dracula disaster than a heavenly hairdresser, you’d be wrong. This procedure is actually a highly effective treatment for baldness and hair loss.
Experiencing hair loss can deeply affect your self-esteem, and it can happen to anyone for many different reasons at any point in your life.
It used to be that all you could do was consider either wearing a scratchy toupeè or hide it with a colour-based hair spray. Even now, many elixirs and treatments promise to restore hair, but knowing which is worth trying can be hard.
One treatment that is becoming increasingly popular to help combat hair loss is vampire hair restoration, but what makes this treatment different? And more importantly, does it actually work?
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss can affect both men and women of any age, but it tends to be more common among men. There are lots of causes, such as:
- Diseases like alopecia
- Cancer treatment
Hair loss can be very unsettling and can deeply affect confidence and self-esteem. Over the years, there have been many things that claim to combat hair loss, but most are sadly ineffective.
One treatment with a proven track record, however, is Vampire Hair Restoration.
What Is Vampire Hair Restoration?
Don’t be put off by the name; the use of ‘vampire’ is just a fun way to describe a treatment that is conducted using platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
It is a non-surgical procedure that uses extracted plasma from your blood to stimulate hair follicles to encourage natural hair re-growth. PRP is inserted with tiny needle points into your scalp; this technique is called microneedling. The process naturally stimulates the growth of your hair.
How Does Vampire Hair Restoration Work?
PRP contains essential cell-regenerating growth factors that can be used to stimulate the growth of new, younger tissue and increase blood flow.
A PRP procedure works by taking a small amount of your blood, which is then spun at a high frequency within a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is then injected directly into the treatment area. In this way, PRP injections use an individual patient’s healing system to heal and regenerate cells and tissue.
Vampire Hair Restoration starts with your clinician taking a small blood sample, just like you would at a blood test. This sample is then spun at high speed in a centrifuge. This process is needed to separate your blood cells, so we’re able to take just the plasma.
At Elite Aesthetics, we always spin your blood in the centrifuge twice. This unique double spin is really important as it increases the potency of the plasma, making the treatment far more successful.
The PRP is then administered directly to your scalp through microneedling.
Microneedling is a procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilised needles. These small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which are essential to healing your skin.
In the case of Vampire Hair Restoration, the extra blood flow, collagen, and wound-healing process can help your follicles produce thicker hair.
What Is Calecim?
Calecim is a light serum formulated with high concentrations of Rejuvenating Conditioned Media that immediately calms, soothes, and restores skin after in-clinic procedures.
Calecim is a medical skincare range that promotes cellular regeneration, youthful skin, and faster healing. When used alongside PRP treatments such as Vampire Hair Restoration it helps to increase skin cell turnover, improve the condition and general health of the skin and hair, and helps with the secretion of hormones that encourage new hair growth.
How Long Before I See New Hair Growth?
Following a Vampire Hair Restoration treatment at Elite Aesthetics, you can expect to see new hair growth in around 8-10 weeks, even from sparse or no hair.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
How many Vampire Hair Restoration treatments you need will vary from person to person. It depends on the extent of the hair loss and the results that you want to achieve. Most people tend to need, on average, at least 4 treatments.
Maintenance treatments are recommended to ensure that results you have last. Most of our patients at Elite Aesthetics find them very beneficial for long-term results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After the procedure, you may experience some soreness and bruising, but because the PRP serum is made up of your own cells and plasma, the risk of an allergic reaction is low.
PRP is used successfully to treat a range of problems. It isn’t a new concept; it’s been used for decades in the medical field, dating as far back as 1975. And because it’s derived from your blood, it’s a natural and safe treatment.
You’ll find lots of evidence online showing the effectiveness of PRP for hair loss. Vampire Hair Restoration with Calecim is as close to a cure for hair loss as we can offer.
