Wrinkles and thinning hair may be a normal part of the aging process, but with advances in aesthetic medicine, you can slow things down.
At Montclair Rejuvenation Center, our medical aesthetic expert Dr. Kelly Destefano and the team of estheticians are always looking for new services to help our clients look as young as they feel. For aging skin and hair loss, we offer both Pep Factor and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Aging skin and hair loss
Aging affects both the skin and the hair. Changes in your skin as you get older are one of the most visible signs of the aging process. Like other body systems, cell production and turnover slows down as you get older. These changes make your skin thin, dry, and less resilient, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and sagging.
Like your skin, the hair growth cycle slows down as you get older, which means hair loss may outpace new hair growth, resulting in a receding hairline or a more visible scalp. Your hair also loses color, causing strands to turn white or gray.
You can’t stop time, but you can slow down the effects aging has on your look without surgery or downtime. For aging skin and hair loss, both Pep Factor and PRP can help.
About Pep Factor
Your hair and skin rely on various nutrients for optimal health, function, and structure. Pep Factor contains a proprietary blend of nutrients that rejuvenates your skin and scalp.
Pep Factor for skin rejuvenation
The Pep Factor formula for your skin contains a mix of peptides (short strings of amino acids) and nutrients.
It works by stimulating the formation of fibroblasts, which are the cells that support the formation of collagen. Collagen is the structural protein responsible for your skin’s youthful strength, glow, and resilience.
We apply the Pep Factor to your skin to get the desired results.
Pep Factor for hair loss
Fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and copper peptides are the active ingredients in Pep Factor for hair loss.
Like the skin rejuvenation formula, Pep Factor for hair loss stimulates growth of collagen, which in turn improves hair follicle health and the hair growth cycle.
For hair loss, we infuse the Pep Factor formula into your scalp and use an LED light to activate the bFGF and peptides.
With PRP, we tap into your body’s own self-rejuvenation system to improve the effects aging has on your skin and hair. PRP contains a high concentration of the platelets found in your blood.
Platelets are tiny cells most people associate with blood clotting. But these cells also contain growth factors that trigger cell production to speed up healing and tissue regeneration.
We use PRP for skin rejuvenation and hair loss
PRP for skin rejuvenation
For skin rejuvenation, we combine the PRP with our Vivace™ microneedling tool. We apply the PRP serum to your face and use the microneedling tool to drive the healing factors into your skin.
PRP enhances collagen production to restore a more youthful look.
PRP for hair restoration
With PRP for hair restoration, we inject the healing properties directly into the areas of the scalp where you have thinning hair. The PRP reactivates dormant hair follicles and extends the hair growth cycle to improve hair thickness and health.
When it comes to rejuvenating your skin and hair, there’s no better time than now. We can help you decide whether Pep Factor or PRP makes the right choice for you. Call our office in Verona, New Jersey, or use the “book online” tool to schedule a consultation today.
