I have been a client for more than a year and really like the results I have seen. The treatment has slowed my hair fall and I am seeing new hair growth. Paul is very understanding and knowledgeable. He sets realistic expectations and always ensures that you are happy with the results. As Paul would mention keeping up with the treatments and being consistent yields positive results. Paul will check in with you during the treatments and goes about asking about your day. The staff are all friendly and amazing. The customer service is on point. I have always had a positive experience.

I must say the treatment works and stopped my suddenly hair drop. ALL the staff is friendly. All of them. They're very lovely and professional. I have a nice conversation every time I go there for my treatment, and leave with a good sensation. My experience has been very positive and I strongly recommend this place.

Excellent first experience getting my teeth whitened with LED! It was also my first time using a Groupon! Nan (I'm sure I got her name wrong - so sorry) was very friendly, helpful, and patient. My teeth are noticeably whiter, and I'm leaving a happy customer. I will definitely be coming back! Thanks, Antech ????

Amazing haircare products. Just after a month of using their hair products my dandruff has decreased dramatically and my hair doesn't fall off anymore in the shower. This clinic is definitely worth your time.

What Is a Hair Follicle?

Posted by admin on Apr 23, 2018

A hair follicle is a small bulb-like part of the hair that is also known as the root of the hair. It plays an important role in hair growth since it is where the live cells grow and then divide to build the hair shaft. The blood vessels in the scalp provide the hormones and the nourishment the cells need for structure and hair growth.

Hair Growth Cycle

The hair follicle provides growth in 3 different phases including:

  • Anagen This is the growth phase
  • Catagen – This is also known as the transitional phase when the growth of the hair slows down and the follicle shrinks.
  • Telogen – This is the resting phase where the growth stops. The hair becomes detached from the follicle and a new hair starts the growth phase.

Hair Follicle Problems

The most common condition experienced with hair follicles is called folliculitis. When hair follicles are inflamed, small pimples or red bumps can be seen around the follicles. This is a fungal or a bacterial infection that can spread and the bumps or pimples eventually turn into crusty sores. This can affect hair growth and severe infections can lead to permanent loss of hair, destroyed hair particles and scarring.

Mild infections can usually be cleared up using self-care basic measures while more severe cases will require a trip to the doctor. In severe cases an antifungal medication may be required or an antibiotic.
