We are excited to now offer our patients the LOCKrx product line.  We are constantly evaluating and reviewing the latest developments on the treatment of female hair loss and based on some of the latest research we felt like we had some holes in our treatment offerings.  Specifically, when it came to gut health and at home micro-needling.

We have always believed that supplements and vitamins need to play a role in any hair loss treatment plan, however, the supplements we offered did not have a strong enough focus on gut health.  Over the last couple of years, research has shown how important gut health is to hair health.  One of the main product offerings that LOCKrx has is their Defense gut health powder.  Improved gut health allows for proper absorption of the nutrients needed for healthier hair.

Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in the popularity of at-home micro-needling devices due to the promising research on the effectiveness of micro-needling as a treatment for hair loss.  As we searched for an option for our patients, we had two requirements of an at-home system.  First, the device had to be a stamper.  Too many at-home devices are rollers, which can catch the hair and cut it.  Secondly, it needed to come with a growth factor topical to micro-needle into the scalp.  The second part is really important, because the promising research on micro-needling was conducted on a specific needle depth of 1.5mm, which you really cannot find at home.  The purpose of at-home micro-needling is to mimic what is done in the office, but since you cannot get to the depth needed to activate the growth factors, you need a topical solution to introduce these key ingredients to the scalp and follicle for healing and rejuvenation.  The LOCKrx Growth Factor 3x Serum and micro-needle stamper met all of these requirements and should be a great at home option for many of our patients.

The last piece of the LOCKrx offering is their Guard and Block hair loss supplement.  LOCKrx split their supplement into two main focuses, the Guard, which focuses on the conditions necessary to support healthy hair and decrease shedding, and the Block, which focuses on supporting healthy hair and blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT, which is involved with the shrinking process of hair follicles.  By splitting the supplements into two different pills, it allows for maximum flexibility, in not only in cost to the patient, but in how we develop our treatment plans.

As our offices are closed due to the current situation with Coronavirus, we have worked out a special program with LOCKrx for Medi Tresse patients.  Our patients will be receiving a special 10% discount. If you are interested in learning more about these great treatment options reach out to our office.
