Hair and Why We Care
Hair is a hallmark of your identity. A good hair day can inspire confidence, and a bad hair day can do just the opposite.
That is why prematurely losing hair can be so devastating for women and men. For centuries hair has been associated with beauty, health, and strength. Think back to Cleopatra’s braids, or even Queen Elizabeth I’s curls. The color, texture, and even style of your hair all come together to tell a story of who you are. Hair, even lack of hair, is a statement.
Did you know that over 80 million Americans suffer from hair loss? Hair loss can be attributed to a number of conditions, and amplified by poor circulation, dead skin cells, and clogged follicles.
That is why patients from all over the New England and surrounding areas come to see Dr. Joyce Imahiyerobo-Ip at Vibrant Dermatology. Dr. Imahiyerobo-Ip is a board-certified, ivy-league trained dermatologist, and a renowned leader in the field of hair loss and regeneration. As an innovator in the field, after evaluating a patient’s hair loss, Dr. Imahiyerobo-Ip customizes treatment plans which can include topical medications, oral medications, steroid injections, and even procedural options including PRP and Kerafactor (link to PRP/kerafactor page).
Vibrant Dermatology is thrilled to now offer Scalp Revive, a revolutionary hair treatment which nourishes and revitalizes your scalp to stimulate hair growth. Often thought of as a facial for your scalp, Scalp Revive is a non-invasive procedure which stimulates scalp health and furthermore hair growth.
This treatment cleans your hair follicles and stimulates blood flow to the scalp, which in turn helps to grow healthy new hairs. Once the follicles are clear of debris and oil, synthetic growth factors are gently massaged into the scalp. The whole treatment takes no longer than thirty minutes and it is painless. You can enjoy the procedure while relaxing in the SkinBar (link photo) sipping on a seltzer and watching your favorite TV show.
For patients looking to maximize hair growth, Dr. Imahiyerobo-Ip recommends using this procedure after completing a series of PRP or Kerafactor treatments. To achieve optimal follicle growth, Scalp Revive should be performed once a month for three months.
