Effects of HRT( Hormone Replacement Therapy) on hair growth- The Good, The Bad, The Ugly...
Detrimental effects of HRT or Hormone Replacement Therapy and the benefits of Help Hair Shake.
Many patients are taking Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT. They take it because they are feeling tired, depressed, have low energy and low libido. HRT can have many positive effects.
However the side effects of HRT on your existing hair may have a huge negative impact. Many times HRT can cause hair loss and damage non transplanted hair but it can have a negative impact on transplanted hair too. It can make it look thin, brittle and lack luster and it is important to take action to stop the damage which can be permanent.
HRT therapy includes testosterone, growth hormone, and IGF-1 serum stimulators. We suggest that if you are taking HRT to be monitored carefully for changes in your hair texture, growth rate and shedding.
An example of the hair loss, hair thinning and damage to transplanted and non transplanted hair is shown in the following prior hair transplant patient.
This patient has a long history suffering from hair loss.
He had a transplant several years ago and was one of the first documented AFR (Accelerated Follicular Restoration) patients by video. (Last bottom right picture after fully grown from a Hair transplant and using Help Hair Shake after 6 months. This patient was one of our first video documented AFR patient. To see his full history click here...
He contacted our office and was losing hair (see bottom left - 2 pictures)because of recent HGH(Human Growth Hormone) and Testosterone use, not following our long term advice by following the Low Anabolic Profile. The Low Anabolic Profile advises against using products especially work out products that increase DHT and IGF-1 serum that can accelerate hair loss.
We advised him to start using the Shake and discontinue the HGH and follow the Low Anabolic Profile.
He started to use the Help Hair Shake and reversed the damage after only 4 months. The results have been amazing!
The Shake is not only for Accelerated regrowth (AFR)but enhances transplanted hair ( and of course none transplanted hair) because it will add volume and density.
