Hair Restoration Basics: iGrow Works with Other Treatments
The non-invasive iGrow hair growth system has taken the hair restoration industry by storm. This revolutionary treatment combines laser and led light therapy to stimulate dormant hair follicles to begin growing hair once again. When you purchase the iGrow device, you have the ability to use the system in the privacy of your own home at times that are convenient for you. While the iGrow hair growth system is an effective restoration treatment when used alone, it can also be safely combined with other hair growth treatments to achieve even faster, more dramatic results.
Topical Medications and iGrow
Minoxidil, commonly sold under the commercial name Rogaine, is a popular hair restoration treatment for both men and women. This formula stimulates hair growth by increasing circulation to the scalp to delivering much needed oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. Minoxidil is applied to the scalp daily and users will begin to see results after a number of weeks or months. Results only continue as long as the solution is used. However, when this treatment is combined with iGrow, the results are much longer-lasting even after the Minoxidil is no longer applied.
Oral Medications and iGrow
Finasteride is the generic name for the oral medication Propecia, which has been highly touted as an effective hair restoration treatment. Propecia is thought to work by preventing the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT has been linked to shrinking hair follicles and hair loss in men. Propecia can be safely taken while using the iGrow hair growth system to enhance overall hair restoration results. In addition, men concerned about side effects linked to Propecia, such as sexual dysfunction, can enjoy the results of the iGrow long after Propecia use is stopped.
Topical Hair Products and iGrow
Topical hair products, such as shampoos and conditioners, can also be used with the iGrow hair growth system to improve results as well as the overall health of the hair. When shopping for these over-the-counter products, look for effective ingredients like tree tea oil, copper peptides and saw palmetto that have shown to be successful in regulating hormone levels and promoting a healthy scalp. Vitamins and minerals also support the underlying hair growth system for thicker, healthier results.
While the iGrow hair growth system can be safely used in combination with any of these other hair restoration treatments, patients at Rodeo Surgical Art often find the iGrow device alone is sufficient for achieving their desired results.
