Hair loss treatments

Vitacrecil Complex Forte

 

contains “trichogenic factor” nutrients, oligoelements and vitamins that promote and restore, in case of their deficiencies or in situations of high nutritional requirements, the elements needed for hair formation and growth.

 

  • L-CYSTINE

    L-cystine is an amino acid that intervenes in keratin synthesis. Keratin, as has been indicated before, is the structural protein of hair, and also of nails, besides being the organism’s main source of sulphur.

     

  • ZINC

    Zinc is an oligoelement that is essential in metabolising cystine. It indirectly inhibits the production of 5-DHT, in a different way from Finasteride. Its deficiency can lead to telogen alopecia.

     

  • BIOTIN

    Biotin (or vitamin H) deficiency can bring about telogen alopecia. Providing biotin makes the anagen phase longer and the telogen phase shorter.

     

  • IRON

    Iron is essential for hair growth. Its deficiency is one of the causes of telogen effluvium in menstruating women and those on weight-loss or vegetarian diets.

  • PANTOTHENIC ACID

    Pantothenic acid (or vitamin B5) is necessary for the formation of the disulfide bridges present in the keratin in hair and is a stimulant of follicle energy metabolism.

  • PYRIDOXINE

    or vitamin B6, plays a role in the formation of amino acids, such as cysteine (cystine). Its deficiency causes seborrhoeic dermatitis and strengthens the effect of zinc on the inhibition of 5-DHT production.

And, in addition, there are only 2 medicinal products authorised by the healthcare authorities that have proven that they slow down the progression of alopecia (AGA) and even increase hair growth in some cases.

Topical Minoxidil

 

is a medicinal lotion that has shown that it makes the anagen phase longer and increases the size of the follicles in the scalp crown. You can start to see the effects on the growth of hair thickness between the 4th and 6th months of treatment.

 

Consult your dermatologist about using this type of products.

Oral Finasteride 1 mg

 

in tablets is a prescription medicinal product that inhibits type II 5α-reductase and reduces the conversion of testosterone to 5-DHT (triggering the phenomenon of miniaturisation). Finasteride increases the number of hairs and their length and thickness. These changes start to become visible after 4-6 months of treatment, and they continue throughout the years that the treatment lasts.
