The Calecim Hair System treats both male and female pattern hair loss using a Mesenchymal stem cell growth factor serum that contains multiple growth factors and cytokines.
These include including Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor (TGF), Insulinlike Growth Factor (IGF) and Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF).
These growth factors promote hair growth by acting on the hair follicle to increase blood supply and activity of hair growth, prolong the hair growth phase and encourages conversion from dormant to active hair follicles.
This treatment primarily addresses hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia and a proper diagnosis must be made to exclude other alternative causes of hair loss.
My recommended treatment protocol involves weekly treatments with Calecim AHS for 6-12 sessions, depending on hair loss severity, in conjunction with scalp micro needling and Low Level Laser Therapy. In addition, I would also recommend topical minoxidil 5% and hair growth supplements.
Results are typically seen in 3-4 months, with patients experiencing improved hair density and volume with less hair fall.
1) Any preparation or downtime?
Patients come to clinic with a clean scalp free of any hair products. It is recommended not to wash hair for 24 hours after a treatment. There is no downtime and you can resume normal activity.
2) I am considering a hair transplant, should I do this treatment?
Treatment with Calecim AHS can give satisfactory results in early to moderate hair loss. In advanced hair loss, a hair transplant may give better results. Treatment with Calecim AHS after a hair transplant seems to improve the hair growth of transplanted hair follicles.
3) Is this treatment suitable for women?
Yes, both male and female patients can undergo this treatment.
