Our hair has more of an impact on our appearance than we realise. Most women (and some men) spend a lot of time and money taking care of their skin, but neglect their scalps which can lead to sensitised scalps, thinning hair, hair loss and even balding or alopecia. When our hair looks good, we feel confident and empowered; it reflects our personalities and sometimes, even our moods. So when your hair is thin, lifeless and falling out, it affects our self-esteem, not just how we look. Topical hair tonics and supplements can help in improving hair growth and quality to some extent, but a scalp treatment will really tackle the root of the matter, pun intended.
Enter the Scalp Activator treatment. Not only will this treatment make you feel good—it’s quite the treat—but it will actually help improve the quality of your hair while also boosting hair growth. Here’s everything you need to know about the Scalp Activator treatment that is as relaxing as it is effective.
So what exactly is a Scalp Activator treatment?
This is a FDA-approved non-invasive, painless treatment that helps boost hair growth and improve hair density. In order to do this it uses radiofrequency energy to help improve microcirculation at the scalp, which in turn improves the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles to boost cellular activity and this results in better hair growth and hair quality.
How does the Scalp Activator treatment work?
Using a patented technology that emits radiofrequency waves at a specific wavelength of 448kHz it helps to recalibrate and heal the cells by assisting in the exchange of positive and negative ions between the internal and external matrix of the cell to bring about equilibrium. This results in improved metabolism and blood circulation, which helps deliver essential nutrients to the hair follicle so that it can multiply and replicate, thus forming new hair. The radiofrequency also has a thermal effect that helps with blood circulation as well as lymphatic drainage. It also helps deliver amino acids (which are the building blocks of proteins like keratin) to the hair follicle. These amino acids are then assimilated into keratin, which is essentially what your hair is made up of. The increased keratin ensures improved diameter and density of hair.
Why do you need it?
Whether it’s stress, trauma, medications, genetics or hormones, hair loss can affect anyone at any age. The key to halting hair loss is to start treating it as soon as you realise you’re losing more hair than you normally should. Treating hair loss early is the key to successfully combating it.
You can also get the Scalp Activator treatment as a preventive treatment or in combination with any of our other Papilla scalp treatments to improve scalp health, ensure your hair is stronger and healthier and shiny for longer. A consultation with our scalp specialists will help determine your suitability for this treatment.
What does a session of Scalp Activator treatment feel like?
Think of it as a warm head massage that not only feels relaxing but is actually effective in boosting hair growth. A gel will be applied to your scalp at the start of your 45-minute session after which the hand piece will be moved across the scalp in sections. It is completely painless and safe, in fact you will feel calm and refreshed, just like your scalp. At the end of the session, the gel will have dried without leaving a residue, so you don’t even need to wash your hair.
How many sessions do you need?
As each individual’s scalp and hair concerns are unique, an in-depth consultation with one of our experienced and qualified scalp specialists will help determine exactly how many sessions you need.
