- How Follirich works?
It is a pure, highly safe, and concentrated preparation engineered from using a person’s own blood for superior results.
Various Growth Factors such as
PDGF (Platelet-derived Growth Factor) activates hair growth and stimulates mesenchymal stem cells.
VEGF (Vascular endothelial Growth Factor) stimulates the production of new blood vessels around the hair root.
IGF-1(Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) Increases hair growth and maintains hair follicle growth.
EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) activates hair growth as well as stimulates new blood vessels around the hair root.
These Growth Factors are involved in tissue regeneration, tissue repair and stem cell migration, differentiation, and proliferation.
- Is Follirich right for you?
Hair loss is one of the most common signs of today’s stressful and demanding lifestyle. Androgenic Alopecia (Male Pattern Hair Loss/MPHL* ) and Female Pattern Hair Loss ( FPHL**) are two most common causes of hair loss. Hair loss impairs the quality of life and is also associated with significant psychological morbidity. The current treatment options like medications (minoxidil, finasteride etc.), vitamins, and antioxidants are not very effective. The need of daily applications, cost, longer duration of traetment and various side effects makes the patient’s compliance & effectiveness limited.
Any candidate in early stages of Alopecia as judged by the treating doctor is a fit candidate for Follirich GFC therapy. Follirich is equally effective in both males and females.
