Carboxytherapy, also referred to as Carbon Dioxide Therapy, originated over 80 years ago in the royal spas of France. Patients who regularly bathed in the carbon dioxide-rich thermal waters showed faster wound healing. It was found that this carbon dioxide exposure to the skin improved blood circulation and the skin’s texture and elasticity.
Today, Carboxytherapy is a well-known treatment in medical and cosmetic fields. Carboxytherapy is highly effective in the reduction of alopecia , for the treatment of hair thinning and stimulation of hair growth. Carboxytherapy is also used in the treatment of stretch marks, cellulite, scarring, wrinkles and wound healing.
Whether hair loss is caused by genetics, environmental factors or illness, Carboxytherapy has proven effective in re-stimulating hair follicles and hair growth. Carboxytherapy is a relatively non-invasive treatment which uses small injections of carbon dioxide gas to stimulate hair growth. Carboxytherapy improves oxygenation of the hair follicle and improves blood flow to the scalp.
The rush of oxygenated blood results in the release of growth factors which stimulate the hair follicle increasing collagen and protein synthesis in the hair follicle area.
Carboxytherapy and can be combined with other treatments and results are usually seen in just three months of their first treatment. There is no downtime associated with this treatment. It has been used for decades with no reported side effects and is considered very safe.
In order to achieve the best results a course of 8-10 treatments every 2 weeks is recommended. Thereafter, regular maintenance treatments are required.

AQ Advanced Hair Complex+
AQ Hair Complex is a serum containing human growth factors. It is a form of mesotherapy specific for hair growth.
AQ Skin Solution’s Advanced Hair Complex+ was created to address aging hair follicles and hair loss by employing patented growth factor technology to promote healthy hair. Stem cells lining the hair follicles are crucial for the production and maintenance of hair. Supplementing with growth factors and active ingredients provides support to these stem cells so that hair can thrive. AQ’s advanced formulation works by nourishing hair follicles to a more functional and healthy state with GFs, active ingredients and fruit oils.
The Advanced Hair Complex+ aims to improve the overall condition of the scalp and damaged hair follicles, while increasing the circulation of select growth factor proteins found in your healthy hair follicles. This process can allow for a normal hair growth cycle that leads to improved overall hair quality.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a regenerative medical treatment involving tiny injections of your own platelets and plasma isolated from a small sample of blood . Platelets contain growth factors that message your body to repair and rejuvenate at a cellular level. When used for hair loss, it stops the hair from miniaturising (getting smaller and thinner), and helps to revive existing hair follicles, reversing hair thinning. However if the hair follicle has already completely died, PRP won’t be able to stimulate hair to grow. PRP usually works best in people who have started noticing hair thinning in the last 2-3 years.
PRP can be injected manually or using a Mesotherapy Multi-Injector device or “Meso-gun “. It is also possible to infuse PRP during a micronnedling treatment such as Dermapen. The meso-gun and microneedling with Dermapen allow for maximum coverage with minimal use of product, meaning we can get the most out of your platelets. We will sometimes use tiny injections of PRP into the skin manually for specific problem areas. Dr Debbie will decide what is most appropriate for you.
The amount of treatments needed to reduce hair loss will vary per person and will depend on the level of hair loss, the individuals hair growth cycle, and other medical factors.

An annual maintenance treatment is recommended.
Results vary per individual but on average you can expect to see results at 4-6 months.
Microneedling with Dermapen
Micro-needling is an effective way to regenerate hair. The principle of creating a controlled injury to the scalp results in release of growth factors with production of new collagen and HA, both required for hair follicle stimulation. The Dermapen 4 has revolutionised medical microneedling and can give over 1800 pricks per second. It’s so fast and the needle so tiny that patients say it just feels like a tickle or a scratchy sensation. No anaesthetic is required for scalp treatments. The micro-injury promotes a natural inflammatory response with a proliferation of growth factors and fibroblasts. These are the cells that produce the collagen for new hair growth . Microneedling has the added benefit of allowing infusion of active ingredients such as mesotherapy solution, AQ and PRP during treatment.
