The emerging OxyCure Therapy
Hair transplants are rapidly advancing, and adjuvant treatments are continually emerging. To push the potential of the surgery to the threshold and achieve the best possible results from the procedure is a mutual objective between patients and surgeons alike. Treatment of such value and efficiency is no longer a mere idea resident in the feeble wires of imagination. OxyCure therapy is an emerging treatment that is the icing to the cake of hair transplants. The smallest details in the picture are carefully attended to via OxyCure to provide to the patient with the most perfect of results.
What is OxyCure Therapy
OxyCure therapy is a treatment that delivers 100% oxygen to patients under hyperbaric conditions of increased pressure in the treatment chamber or a tube through a mask or a hood on the head. The purity of the oxygen and the increased pressure are key contributors to the success of the procedure. The controlled atmosphere allows the lungs to absorb more oxygen and allows oxygen to diffuse from red blood cells to the plasma. The increased oxygen concentrations have dramatic effects on the body; hence, why the treatment is often used to treat multiple disorders related to healing. Owing to the benefits of the therapy, OxyCure is used as an adjuvant therapy to hair transplant results.
Why is oxygen necessary for cells
Oxygen is an element essential for a process called cellular respiration. Cellular respiration utilizes oxygen to yield energy for molecular activity. Oxygen is a vital element for survival, that on the occasion of its deprivation in conditions such as anemia, the body shifts into survival mode, a phase that allows the body to selectively terminate oxygen supply off secondary functions such as hair growth to supply vital organs. Hence why eating a diet full of the necessary nutrients and leading a healthy lifestyle is critical for hair growth. Although hair may be a priority to us, the underlying motive is vanity related, and the body in survival mode can certainly do without the extra glamour.
The relationship between oxygen and androgenic alopecia
Androgenic alopecia is hereditary hair loss that is characterized by the miniaturization of follicular units in response to DHT, a more aggressive version of testosterone. Among the various cascade of cellular events is the gradual diminishing of capillaries and blood supply in the affected follicular units. Consequently, a molecular mechanism necessary for survival and proliferation is permanently and irreversibly terminated.
How OxyCure Therapy affects hair transplants
To comprehend the gravitational effects OxyCure has on the results of hair transplantation, the procedure of the process has to be analyzed. To reverse the consequences of androgenic alopecia, follicular units are transplanted from areas of stable growth and implanted in areas of hair loss. The natural events of transplantation cut the source of direct blood supply from the follicular units and place the grafts in newly made incisions with no connected capillaries. In the meantime, grafts attempt to regain contact with the capillaries in the new region in a process known as revascularization.
An estimated period of four days is required for follicular units to come in direct contact with a blood supply. During this phase, nearly 30% of follicular units do not survive. The remaining 70% survive by absorbing oxygen from the plasma.
Here are the main 5 benefits from OxyCure Therapy in hair transplant:
Survival rate of follicular units increases to 98%
Lower infection rates
Stronger hair growth
Faster wound healing
An overall body treatment
How to prepare for OxyCure therapy
OxyCure is an outpatient procedure that does not require hospitalization. There are no significant preparations to undergo, except that oxygen is a highly flammable object and the oxygen chambers could ignite easily, so patients will have to abstain from applying flammable products on the day of the treatment. In addition, patients will not be allowed to take items such as battery-powered devices and lighters.
The increased pressure in treatment chambers will cause the ears to clog in a similar sensation to plane pressure. The blocking can subside through yawning or chewing. The method of delivery varies; patients are either treated in tubes or chamber rooms. Oxygen is delivered via hoods placed on the head or masks where patients have to breathe in the purified oxygen.
OxyCure brings about dramatic effects on both the results of hair transplants and the over-all bodily functions. Until grafts regain direct blood supply in the new region, and an estimate of 30% of the grafts are predicted to die during the period preceding vascularization as a result of oxygen deprivation. OxyCure delivers 100% pure oxygen in pressure-controlled chambers for oxygen content to dramatically increase in the blood.
Providing follicular units with oxygen in the period prior to revascularization increases graft survival rates from 70% to 98%. In addition, it enhances collagen production all over the body. Collagen is an essential protein in the healing process, and increasing its production shortens the recovery period by nearly 50 to 70%. Instead of the usual two week recovery period, patients are expected to heal within a weak or less.
