I've posted in the past about the ways Chinese medicine can encourage hair growth from a variety of causes. Now I'm sharing a little success with you.

This is a very common area to see hair thinning. In Chinese medicine, this area is related to an acupuncture point known as Stomach 8, though we might more commonly relate hair loss in terms of TCM to liver blood or deficient YIN. Regardless, we do apply acupuncture locally to this area to stimulate hair growth.

I then follow up with an herbal formula if required to build blood and increase circulation, or I can recommend a supplement for you that usually includes zinc, b vitamins, and collagen to name a few.

I then gave this patient a quick treatment with a high frequency device. High frequency devices function using glass High Frequency Electrodes which come in many different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body.

When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. The electrodes produce varying intensities of light and a pleasant, therapeutic tingling sensation which may be adjusted via a power control dial.

All High Frequency Electrodes produce either a neon red / orange light or violet / blue light depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. Traditionally, violet electrodes have been used by professionals to treat acne prone skin and the orange electrodes have been used to treat aging skin.

Through its rapid oscillation, high frequency current improves the process of nourishment, promotes local blood circulation, stimulates local glandular activity, supplies heat to the area which is soothing to the nervous system and significantly improves the scalp's receptiveness to and the overall effectiveness of post-treatment hair growth formulas. For many years, hairdressers have used high frequency current technology to revitalize scalp conditions which can aid in promoting healthier hair growth.

This current is thought to kill bacteria that might be occluding hair follicles, and prevent scalp conditions from proliferating.

This image with the acupuncture included is ten days after the above treatment. A series is best in the beginning, and you might need to continue the herbs for a bit ensure you are balanced and can maintain your health to support your new hair growth.
