Have you started to notice spots on your head where the hair is thinning? Maybe you’re seeing more hair than usual in your hairbrush every day. Hair loss can be a devastating and frustrating issue to deal with for both men and women. It can strike at any age and for almost any reason. There are many different treatments out there, but how do you know which one to choose? Most of our patients want to avoid surgery for as long as possible, and many of them don’t have hair loss that is severe enough to warrant it. The next option to consider is medication. Viviscal is an oral medication that helps to promote hair growth. Below is more information about this hair restoration medication.
What is Viviscal?
Viviscal is not technically a drug, it is a dietary supplement used for hair restoration. The medication itself is 100% drug-free. Instead, it uses the marine complex AminoMar, which is a ground-breaking proprietary. In addition to AminoMar, Viviscal uses a blend of nutrients that act to promote hair growth. This medication also functions as a way to improve the health of the hair you already have. The dietary supplement is just one of the many products offered by Viviscal. We also offer special shampoos and conditioners that improve the health of the scalp and nourish the hair. When used in a complete program, patients report hair growth and healthier hair.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are many different factors that contribute to hair loss. The ones that we want to focus on, however, are the ones that can be treated with Viviscal. These include:
• Stress – This is very hard to avoid. Stress comes in many forms, including work and home life. There is no way to completely remove stress from your life, but there are ways to manage it. However, sometimes stress takes a toll and we find ourselves with thinning hair, which (ironically) can cause even more stress.
• Age and Genetics – Some people are predisposed to losing their hair. Most professionals will look to the grandparents to see if the grandchildren will lose their hair when they get older. Some races are more likely to lose their hair than others. There is nothing you can do to control these factors, so hair loss due to age and/or genetics is unstoppable without medical intervention.
• Damage from the Environment – Our hair is very much like our skin in that it can be damaged if exposed to certain elements. If left in the sun for extended periods of time, some hair can actually become bleached, which tends to be very damaging. A dry environment also saps the moisture from the hair, which makes it brittle and prone to falling out. Aside from moving to a different climate or wearing a hat when in the sun, there is nothing you can do to control the environment.
• Damage from Hair Products – Just like your skin, your hair has a type. If you have dry skin you want to make sure it is properly moisturized, just like if you have dry hair. Over washing is a common way to damage your hair, and so is over styling with heat tools like a flat iron or a hair dryer. Brushing your hair while it’s wet is another way you can damage it without meaning to. Your hair falling out of your head is not the only thing you need to worry about, especially if you have damaged, brittle hair. That’s where the comprehensive Viviscal program comes in. The shampoo, conditioner, and elixir that we offer are all effective at healing and nourishing the hair. This allows you to experience more volume, shinier hair, and better texture.
What are the Benefits?
Viviscal is available for both men and women in San Diego. Men tend to suffer from hair loss more than women, but women tend to suffer from damaged hair more than men. This is due to the genetics factor we mentioned earlier, as well as the fact that women tend to over style their hair more often.
Women may begin to experience hair loss as they go through hormone changes such as menopause, which is somewhere Viviscal can come in handy. Hair loss can be a blow to the self-esteem for men, but it can be completely devastating for women.
This treatment also has the benefit of being heavily researched for 25 years, which means you can count on the results. The treatment has been proven time and time again to be effective, so you won’t be wasting your time with another useless medication.
How Does Viviscal Work?
The treatment itself may take three to four months to show results. This is due to the fact that it takes time for the vitamins and nutrients to reach your hair and provide improvement. The results appear after four stages have been completed. These four stages begin with the hair follicles receiving nourishment from within. This isn’t visible to the patient, of course, but it is vital to the rest of the treatment.
The second stage sees the existing hair being strengthened. The hair will begin to grow longer, and it will start to become much healthier than before. After this second stage, the third stage is where new hair growth is promoted. Thinning areas will see dormant follicles awakened, which means you hair will become thicker and more vibrant.
The final stage, stage four, is when the end result is visible. Your hair will be noticeably less brittle, which makes it look shinier and healthier. Bald spots or thinning areas will have grown in with healthy hair, so you will have the headful of hair you’ve been dreaming of.
