There are 3 phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen.
Each strand of hair on the human body develops at its own pace. Once the cycle is complete, the process starts over, and a new strand of hair begins to form.
Anagen is the growing phase and usually lasts 2-7 years. The length of this phase determines the length of our hair.
Catagen is the transition phase and lasts about 10 days. The hair follicle shrinks and pulls away from its base.
Telogen is the resting phase and lasts about 3 months. When this hair falls out, a new growth process begins.
The process of regenerative hair growth utilizes many cellular and molecular mechanisms common to angiogenesis and wound healing. The advancement in newer technologies, injection therapy procedures, and combination drug therapies allow for regrowth of hair without the need, in many cases, for transplantation, grafts or surgery.
Studies have proven that when a wound occurs in a specific area, hair re-grows with the presence of certain peptides. By introducing a “controlled wound” through micro-needling, we add exosomes and peptides to increase the opportunity for new hair growth.
Exosomes and topical peptides soak into the scalp and begin to stimulate the hair follicles, providing further nourishment and encouraging new growth. As new hairs are forming, old and thinning hairs begin to shed. This phase can last between 2 to 4 weeks.
During Phase I, early signs of new growth can be seen.
The peptides concentrate on the anagen phase or the “active growth” of the hair cycle. As we age, this phase becomes shorter and the hairs that grow back are thinner and smaller. The unique scientific combination of the peptides we use in our protocol extends the length of anagen phase, so that new hair fibers and follicles have a longer time to develop, strengthen and grow.
During Phase II, expect to feel a difference in hair texture that is thicker and smoother.
TB4 Peptide has been working to increase vasculogenisis, which increases the blood supply and circulation to your scalp. During this phase, sleeping follicles have been stimulated and new follicles developed.
During Phase III, visual hair growth can be seen. This exciting growth continues well after day 90 as new hair grows for months following the protocol.
