Keeping your hair and scalp in top condition involves many of the same steps you use to maintain the healthy vitality of the rest of your skin. Exfoliation, the process of removing outermost skin cells to reveal a fresher dermal layer below, is necessary for keeping early signs of aging at bay and may even stop hair loss in some individuals. At Center for Facial & Body Rejuvenation, we are now offering one of the latest products for rejuvenating the scalp and restoring a healthy head of hair. Restorsea Revitalizing Scalp Treatment features state-of-the-art ingredients to invigorate the scalp, stimulate follicles and create thicker, stronger hair.
The Problem with Hair Follicles
We are born without around 100,000 hair follicles on our scalp. Hair grows from these follicles in different stages, so not all the hair on our head is in the same phase at the same time. The three stages of hair growth include:
- Anagen (Growth) Phase – during this stage, which lasts three to five years, hair is growing from the follicle
- Catagen (Intermediate) Phase – this is a transitional phase, lasting just one or two weeks, where the follicle begins to collapse and prepare for a resting period
- Telogen (Resting) Phase – lasting three to four months at a time, this phase is characterized by the shedding of hair to allow for growth of new strands
Hair restoration treatments focus on addressing follicles during the growth phase. However, exfoliation using Restorsea Revitalizing Scalp Treatment can benefit the follicles at any stage.
Over time, those 100,000 hair follicles we started with can start to become clogged and stop working efficiently. By the time we reach the age of 70, we might only have about 70,000 follicles that are still functioning to grow hair. This can lead to hair thinning in both men and women, affecting the appearance and the health of our hair overall.
The Importance of Exfoliation
Exfoliation is a common technique used to rejuvenate the skin, using a variety of methods like chemical peels, microdermabrasion tools or laser devices. These treatments remove outer skin cells that have become dry and are beginning to clog pores. By removing them, we can effectively refresh the skin by allowing nutrients and other beneficial substances to penetrate more deeply into the dermal layers, where they can offer the greatest benefit.
When exfoliation treatments are used on the scalp, they are successful in removing the dry, dead skin cells and other debris that tend to clog follicles over time. As the follicle is opened, it can function more efficiently. Healthy follicles mean healthier hair and an enhanced appearance overall.
The Latest in Exfoliation Ingredients
There are many ingredients used in exfoliating products today. Fruit acids like glycolic and salicylic acid, as well as retinol, can be used to address a host of skin concerns. Today, there is a revolutionary product that provides comparable exfoliation benefits while softening and brightening the skin at the same time: Hydrolyzed roe; made from proteins found in salmon eggs, it sloughs off outer skin cells without the burning or irritation commonly seen with other ingredients. This is the exfoliating agent is found in Restorsea Revitalizing Scalp Treatment, and is the primary reason the product is producing superior results over other scalp exfoliation options today.
