dna activator for hair growth

Stimulate hair regrowth and tackle hair loss and thinning with our latest multi-stage hair repair program using Papilla’s proprietary Double i-i protocol. Featuring the scientifically proven Korean method of combining iontophoresis with ionization, the Double i-i protocol boosts the natural hair growth cycle and rejuvenates the scalp for healthier hair.

Hair loss begins deep within the follicular pore, where the hair strand grows from the dermal papilla. The hair shaft consists of the medulla, cortex, and cuticle layers, where each contains specific hair cells and carry hereditary characteristics such as strength, color and texture. Disruption to the hair growth process stemming from the hair shaft and dermal papilla can ultimately lead to balding, hair thinning and hair loss.

With DNA Activator, healthy growth cells are delivered into the scalp through iontophoresis to activate dormant and weakened (dermal) hair papilla to regulate the hair growth and pigmentation process, producing longer, thicker hair over time. Hair growth is further stimulated through the process of ionization, effectively balancing out the pH balance of the scalp to improve the condition of the environment for healthier, better growth.

The whole treatment takes less than 60 minutes.

How does DNA Activator compare to S.E.P. Activator or Cell Nutrition Therapy?

DNA Activator recharges the weak roots of the hair shaft to support new hair cell regeneration, encouraging hair regrowth from within. By integrating the medically backed processes of iontophoresis and ionization to deliver active cells to the roots, the hair growth cycle is significantly enhanced with no pain and no downtime.

All 3 non-invasive treatments are proven to be safe and effective methods of delivering hair growth factors and potent cells to the follicle. For clients who are afraid of needles, have low pain tolerance, suffer from mild to moderate hair loss and prefer an effortless and painless solution for hair loss, this treatment is ideal.

Is the treatment suitable for pregnant moms?

Although iontophoresis for hair loss treatment is FDA-approved, it is not recommended for pregnant women.

Is the treatment suitable for breastfeeding moms?

The DNA Activator treatment delivers serums to the dermis and not to the bloodstream. Hence it is safe for breastfeeding moms. The only product to avoid is Papilla's Daily Scalp Mask which contains acids. Please let our therapists know if you are breastfeeding so that we are aware of what products to avoid.

Is the treatment painful?

No, this treatment is comfortable and relaxing.


Is the treatment invasive?

No. The treatment is non-invasive, non-ablative and needle-free.
