Ways to Curb Hair Loss & Promote Hair Regrowth by Martinick Hair Restoration

If you or a loved one is experiencing hair loss or hair thinning you should make time to a hair loss specialist or trichologist. These experts will diagnose and give appropriate advice about the condition of your hair and ways to promote hair regrowth. Dr Martinick of Martinick Hair Restoration is the immediate past president of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS)

However, as soon as you recognise hair loss it is essential to stay away from dyes, chemicals, and aggressive shampooing and blow drying to prevent further damage to the hair follicles. When the hair follicles are under too much stress they tend to die out, which leads to hair loss and eventually baldness. Thus, staying away from harsh products is vital for promoting hair restoration.

Along with that, a healthy diet also goes a long way in promoting hair regrowth both for men and women. Through research it has been revealed that lack of nutrition leads to unhealthy hair growth and hair loss, as the hair roots do not get the necessary nourishment. For this reason one may need protein, vitamin, and iron supplements as part of their hair loss treatment plan.

A healthy lifestyle with enough sleep and exercise also contributes to a healthy body and in turn, healthy hair. It has also been observed that mental stress and strain leads to ill health and hair loss. Hence, meditation and yoga, can help you lead a stress free life and prevent hair loss.

Moreover, massaging your scalp regularly with olive oil or vitamin E oil helps stimulate the follicles and promote hair regrowth. Massaging increases the blood circulation within the scalp and stimulates healthy hair regrowth.


Dr Jennifer Martinick – Committing to Excellence in Hair Loss Solutions & Hair Restoration

Martinick Hair Restoration’s Dr Jennifer Martinick believes modern hair transplant surgery has undergone remarkable evolution over the past 15 years. In the right surgical hands, modern follicular hair transplantation (FUT) produces a result so natural in appearance it can only be detected on close examination by other hair transplant physicians. This is a stark contrast to the very obvious looking transplants of the past Dr Martinick says.

Dr Martinick says quite justifiably, early techniques involving transplantation’s of groupings of hairs to create a plug like effect and the old fashioned bell shaped hairlines have been the subject of considerable derision.

She says the remarkable progress reflected in modern hair transplant techniques follows many years of collective research and development and refinement in surgery by dedicated physician members of the recognised medical body on hair restoration, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS).

Dr Martinick says the refinement of surgical techniques has also brought wider social acceptance of hair transplantation.

Dedicated hair restoration physicians do not take this for granted.

There is acknowledgement that the profession of hair restoration must continue with its quest for excellence as well as ensure high levels of accountability and transparency.

Dr Martinick, past president of the ISHRS, says part of the ongoing work for greater consumer awareness about hair restoration surgery is to make it easier for members of the public to find out about the level of experience and ongoing commitment to continuous education of physicians in the field.

To this end, the ISHRS has established a three tiered membership, which includes the categories of associate member, member and the higher category of a Fellow of the ISHRS.

Dr Martinick says each tier of membership is designed to reflect the level of further education a physician has undertaken in the field of hair restoration surgery.

The entry level associate membership is awarded to doctors who are working in the field, but haven’t undertaken the ISHRS’s prescribed continuous education.

Eligibility for full membership and the right to use the ISHRS logo requires the physician to attend a minimum of four three day scientific meetings.

Dr Martinick says the Fellowship Members category is awarded to physicians who have accumulated 50 continuous education points through regular attendance at scientific meetings, sharing the findings of their research at meetings, publishing papers and ongoing professional development.

Along with hosting regular scientific meetings, the ISHRS also provides a broad range of other educational sources, including video and power point presentations on training of surgical staff, for its physician members.
