Vitamins to help hair growth
There are many vital vitamins that play an important role in healthy hair follicles and help hair grow. These vitamins include vitamins c, b complex vitamins such as biotin, niacin (vitamin B3), zinc, folic acid and more.
At IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles center we provide injections of B complex vitamins such as B1, B2, B6, Biotin, Vitamin C, Folic Acid and more. We offer the same vitamins via intravenous therapy. If prescribed as appropriate for your type of hair loss, a doctor may offer a biotin injection. Biotin is believed to improve the keratin in your hair, leading to stronger, thicker, and fuller hair. Other vitamins, like B complex vitamins, vitamin D, iron and zinc have been shown to slow hair loss and, in some cases, actually regrow hair.
Folic acid is a popular choice for fighting hair loss and is considered one of the B complex vitamins. It is important to remember that each patient is different and each patient may require different levels of certain vitamins in order to fight hair loss. Following a medical consultation and assessment, a doctor with IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles will prescribe a custom vitamin cocktail designed to work with your specific body type and medical history. We also offer a convenient house call service that allows you to receive your prescribed intravenous or intramuscular vitamin injection in the comfort of your home or private office. You are also able to receive injections and intravenous therapy in our quiet, comfortable, and modern medical office. Please contact us today to receive your consultation and therapy today.
At IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles we are able to test for deficiencies that you may have in your body and replace them accordingly. For as little as many people think about it, human hair plays a rather interesting role in the human body. Historically, human hair has been the subject of myths and legends, like the biblical tale of strong man Samson and the classic children's story of Rapunzel. During the Victorian Era, human hair was commonly woven into jewelry, usually as a method of paying homage to the deceased before photography became common - and there are still people on the fringes of the Internet who sell arts and crafts made with human hair.
Today, because of its unique makeup, human hair has even been used as a special type of sponge capable of cleaning up oil spills. Hair is primarily made of a protein known as keratin. The strand of hair that extends above the skin, which you can see, is called the shaft. The strand of hair that extends into the skin is known as the follicle and it acts as a type of anchor for the strand.
At the base of the hair, below the follicle and below the skin, is the bulb, which is where live cells divide and grow to create new hair. Also below the skin are blood vessels which help nourish and deliver cells to the bulb. It is also these vessels that help deliver hormones to the scalp which can modify hair patterns over time.
At IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles, we understand how important a healthy head of hair can be to many of our clients. That's why we offer direct injections of vitamins as well as IV vitamins specifically to treat and support hair loss. IV vitamin therapy is not necessarily new, the trend goes back as far as the 1970s, but it has enjoyed resurgence in popularity in large part because of the number of A-List celebrities who swear by its effectiveness.
Simply put, IV vitamin therapy is the process of injecting vitamins directly into the bloodstream. Intramuscular vitamin therapy is almost the same, except the vitamins are injected directly into a large muscle for delivery into the bloodstream, like the upper arm, thigh, or buttock. A direct vitamin injection is generally preferred to the oral consumption of vitamin supplements because it allows the vitamins to be absorbed faster and to remain more potent and undiluted. Orally consumed vitamins and minerals will lose potency and effectiveness because the digestive processes in the stomach and liver break down the nutrients before they can enter the bloodstream.
A direct injection into the bloodstream avoids the digestive system and makes the vitamins more effective. There are actually several reasons why men and women may experience hair loss, from an underlying health condition to a vitamin deficiency. Because of this, the experienced and professional medical staff of IV Vitamin Therapy Los Angeles, an upscale and boutique medical provider will conduct a medical consultation to make sure that a direct vitamin injection is the right answer for your type of hair loss.
By testing your blood we can find underlying deficiencies that may be contributing to your hair loss. Certain metabolic conditions such as abnormalities in thyroid levels, blood sugars and hormones also play an important role in hair loss and hair growth. Our physicians can go through your history and through comprehensive blood work and detect such abnormalities.
