What are ‘Hair Growth Boosters’?

On Belgravia’s website and in our literature we often talk about ‘hair growth boosters’, which are an integral part of Belgravia’s effective treatment programmes for hair loss and are one of the reason’s why Belgravia’s treatment regimes are superior to most other treatment options available. But as you may notice, we spend more time dwelling on the licensed and medically proven hair loss treatments, which are the basis to most of Belgravia’s treatment courses. In this post I will be explaining each of Belgravia’s hair growth boosters, and why they act as such a vital part Belgravia’s treatment courses for both men and women.

HairMax LaserComb

Laser CombThe LaserComb is the only product other than Finasteride 1mg and Minoxidil that shows significant evidence that it assists in preventing hair loss.  It has a different mechanism to both Propecia and Minoxidil, meaning that you are tackling hair loss from a different angle, adding to the effectiveness of the treatment combination. The LaserComb is the only device that has been ‘FDA cleared’, following successful clinical testing in the USA. FDA clearance is similar to FDA approval, but for a device as opposed to a medicine. Although the current models have not yet officially received FDA clearance, 2 separate labs in the US have deemed them substantially equivalent to the FDA cleared model according to HairMax. The LaserComb SE device is available free within most of Belgravia’s treatment programmes for hair loss.

Hair VitalicsHair Vitalics

Hair Vitalics is Belgravia’s ‘home-made’ hair growth supplement, produced and developed exclusively by the Belgravia pharmacy. It contains a number of vitamins and nutrients that are thought to help with the condition of the hair and assist in hair loss prevention. There is no firm evidence to suggest that any supplement for hair loss will individually assist in the prevention or reversal of hair loss but we find it works superbly as a hair growth ‘booster’ and improves the results achieved from the proven hair loss treatments. Hair Vitalics is available for £19.95 for a 1 month supply, or can be included free within most of Belgravia’s treatment courses for hair loss.

MPG / Azelaic Acid / Caffeine

MPG, azelaic acid and caffeine are potentially beneficial ingredients which can be added to Minoxidil. These products are added with the aim of helping to block DHT, which is the product that destroys hair follicles in both men and women. These products are particularly beneficial for women, who are unable to use Finasteride 1mg. As with all unproven products, MPG and Azelaic Acid are not recommended as an individual solution to hair loss.

Belgravia Product RangeAlso available, and usually included in Belgravia’s hair loss treatment programmes, are specially formulated shampoos, conditioners, and scalp products which are designed to maintain the condition of the hair and help to clear up certain scalp complaints such as dandruff or seborrhoeic dermatitis.

More information on all of Belgravia’s hair and scalp products and the treatment option that would be best for you, can be obtained by calling 020 7730 6666, visiting the centre for a free consultation or completing an online diagnostic form for Belgravia’s world-wide mail-order service.

Belgravia’s treatment regimes are easy to use and will ensure hair regrowth in most cases. View our ‘hair loss success stories‘ for an idea of the unparalleled results that are so frequently achieved from the use of Belgravia’s treatment combinations.

Absolutely - all of our PHOTO-SCANS and SUCCESS STORY PHOTOS are completely un-touched. The majority of Belgravia's hair loss treatment users will experience some degree of regrowth - our huge collection of hair growth photos are proof of this. We also have a collection of HAIR LOSS VIDEO DIARIES featuring a Belgravia hair loss patient that responded very well to treatment.

How lasting are the results. Do we have to keep taking Minoxidil and Propecia for life to keep from losing hair and to keep the regrown hair?

im losing my hair from both side,can u tell me how i can stop my hair loss , can u help me pls do u have the best treatment tnx

3rd November, 2014 at 4:18 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Mourad,

If you are losing your hair from the sides of your head, this sounds like it may be a hair loss condition other than male pattern baldness which only affects the areas around the top of the head from the crown to the hairline, including the temples - not the sides. The best thing to do is to see a hair loss specialist or if you cannot visit in person, please complete our Online Consultation form for further advice about your condition and the best hair loss treatments.

hii..m facing hair fall prblm..my head is become bald and dere is no volume in my hairs.plz suggest me fr regrowth of hairs which also provides volume in my hair

9th December, 2014 at 10:50 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Sakshi,

We would need more information about your stage of hair loss in order to give a detailed, personalised response so the best thing to do is to either visit one of our Central London hair loss clinics for a free consultation (book here or call 020 7730 6666), or if you are unable to come to London you can complete our Online Consultation form instead. If you are experiencing thinning hair then first we would need to establish the cause of your hair loss, then prescribe the most effective hair loss treatments for your condition. However, once baldness (where the skin becomes smooth and shiny) develops, treatments will no longer be suitable as this is a sign that the hair follicles have died and are no longer receptive. Once the hair starts to grow back, volume will follow.

HI.I'BE BEEN SUFFERING FROM HAIR LOSS FOR THE PAST TWO YEAR.THIS STARTED WHEN I WENT TO UNIVERSITY AND I'BE BEEN TOLD IT'S DUE TO THE STRESS.MY HAIR IS NOW VERY THIN FROM THE FRONTAL AND CROWN AREA OF MY HEAD AND YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE SCALP. THIS MADE ME LOSE MY SELF CONFIDENT. I TRIED VARIOUS HAIR VITAMINS, HAIR GROWTH TABLETS AND HAIR OILS BUT THE LOST HAIR DOES NOT SEEM TO BE GROWING BACK. SO I NEED SOME SUGGESTIONS Please.Thanks in advance.

16th February, 2015 at 3:09 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Hanna,

Thinning hair at the front and crown areas could be a sign of female pattern hair loss, which can be triggered or exacerbated by stress in those who are already genetically predisposed to this type of hereditary hair loss. Various vitamin supplements, including Hair Vitalics, could be useful boosters for hair growth, however, when it comes to androgenic alopecia, specialist female hair loss treatments are the only medically-proven to regrow hair and prevent further shedding. If you would like to discuss this with one of our experts, please book a free consultation at one of our Central London hair loss clinics by calling 020 7730 6666 or sending us a message. If your location prevents you from visiting us in person, you can complete our Online Consultation instead. application forms and we will contact you with more information.

Is dermaroller especially with PRP as effective as laser comb? Can dermaroller be used as an alternative to laser comb?

10th March, 2015 at 3:36 pm

Sarah

Hi NP,

A dermaroller takes a completely different approach to that of the Lasercomb. A dermaroller is promoted as a device to help the absorbtion of products into the skin, and we are not aware of it being used as part of any PRP treatment. The Hairmax Lasercomb is an FDA-cleared device which uses laser light therapy to penetrate the scalp. When combed through the hair as directed, this stimulates the follicles to promote faster hair growth. You can find out more about the Lasercomb's benefits on our Lasercomb for Women page.

Hi i would like to know the side effects of Hair vitalics supplements. Cheers

Hi Jamal, Please find a full answer to your query regarding Hair Vitalics food supplements as provided by one of our hair loss specialists. We hope you find this information useful.

I like the idea of laser comb because of below facts. The laser energy of the laser comb energizes weakened hair follicles to prevent further hair loss, and stimulates re-growth of hair. Laser comb can increases blood circulation and cellular metabolism in the scalp. The increase in blood flow brings the important nutrients into the hair follicle, and taking away harmful waste products such as DHT. Thanks for sharing these ideas with us :)
