Cryostimulation for Hair Loss and Scalp Conditions
Treating the hair and scalp with Cryostimulation can offer numerous benefits to the patient. The procedure is carried out in the same way as a Cryofacial, where the patient is exposed to extreme cold temperatures of between -80°C and -150°C.
The treatment lasts for approximately 3 minutes per area and can be combined with a Cryofacial treatment. During the treatment, the hair is parted in straight lines and the streams of nitrogen vapour are moved along the exposed scalp and around the hairline. Cryostimulation causes the treatment area to create the necessary temperature inside the body. This increase of the body’s homogenic temperature triggers vasodilations that carry an increased rush of oxygenated blood, stimulating the metabolic processes and the release of hormones. For this reason, the scalp is provided with the nutrients for skin regeneration and the stimulation for hair regrowth.
Cryostimulation is effective after hair transplants, helping to rehabilitate and stimulate the hair to grow back faster, thicker and stronger. Furthermore, any inflammation or discomfort is reduced through the analgesic effect that Cryostimulation has on the treatment area. The procedure is very relaxing and pleasant for the patient.
Cryostimulation activates the body’s natural defences, making it completely safe. In general, when Cryostimulation is applied prior to a procedure it will maximise the effects and results of the given treatment.
To achieve effective and long lasting results, it is recommended that the patient attends 10 to 20 sessions.
How does Cryostimulation Work?
The skin is cooled by streams of liquid nitrogen vapour that provoke the vasoconstriction of skin vessels. The thermoreceptors on the treatment areas stimulate the brain to protect the body from the extreme cold temperatures being sensed on the skin. Once the treatment is over, the thermoreceptors no longer sense this danger and blood rushes back to the treatment area at a much higher rate.
Cryostimulation activates the body’s natural defences, which is why it is totally safe. During the short session only the skin is cooled, with the body’s core temperature remaining the same.
