Are you worried about your hair becoming increasingly fine or thinning? You're not alone. More than 50% of people suffer from thinning hair at some point in their life.
Nioxin Research Laboratories believe that strong and healthy hair begins below the surface of the scalp. Follicles can easily be plugged with sebum, hardened collagen and layers of dead skin cells. If follicles are clogged, strands cannot grow from them. In a healthy growing environment it is not uncommon to find two or three strands of hair growing out of each follicle site. The more follicles that are blocked, the fewer strands of hair that will grow. This is what makes the scalp noticeable and gives the impression of balding. Hair that does manage to grow will be weak which means hair will break easily, and they will thin out.
Here at Harpers we offer an in depth consultation using a Nioscope, a specialised magnifier to study the scalp. We can show clients before and after images of their scalp so that you can see for yourself how the salon treatments are producing results. Unlike traditionally microscopes, a Nioscope projects the field of view onto a monitor so clients can see their own scalp on a screen. A dermabrasion treatment is then carried out by one of our team.
Increasing cellular renewal of the scalp with a natural dermabrasion works the same way microdermabrasion works for the face. Sloughing off dead, flaky skin allows younger skin cells to surface. Younger cells are fresher, clearer and healthier. For the scalp this means a healthier environment for new hair growth. The dermabrasion treatment helps to regenerate and revitalise scalp skin through exfoliation. This helps to remove the build-up around hair follicles and accelerate skin surface regeneration by up to 34% compared to untreated skin. The service is performed in-salon by a qualified Nioxin professional, and is recommended every 4-6 weeks. Following the treatment we'll again examine your scalp with the nioscope machine to note any differences.
The dermabrasion is rinsed using warming water and the hair is treated with Nioxin cleanser, revitaliser and a scalp treatment. A Nioxin homecare treatment programme will be selected to suit your hair type and condition. Nioxin is made up of a variety of different hair care ranges to treat all types of hair and conditions.
